One of the few things on which we can rest assured is the fact that everything changes, that is, except what never changes- who we truly are. We have been abundantly blessed that we can come to rest in the tender happiness of that which never changes. From that space of endless love and stillness we can observe this movie we call a life. The scenes will come and go, as will the characters. The storyline will have constant changes and predictable recurring themes. Feelings will envelop us; some will pierce our hearts. As thoughts come, they are observed. Their companions, opinions and judgements, become less frequent visitors and seen but not taken seriously.
I have heard some self-realized acquaintances state that every breath they take is in devotion. For me, that would be a pretty pretentious statement to make at this point. There is a personality that still exists and a mind that I catch myself abiding in periods of time.
What is clear is that we have a choice in how we perceive the events of our lives. We can either choose to see what ever happens as something that is happening to us or we can see it as an opportunity for our unfolding. We can cut through the surface and be with the core honesty of any situation. Anything that happens in our lives can either be perceived and experienced as a support for our unfolding or an adhesive that enables us to remain stuck. If we are aware and surrender to the flow, life will take care of itself.

Going with the flow...


I have always believed that the Universe brings us what we need, when we need it--still though whenever it happens and I have an "aha" moment, I am in awe.

Messages seem to come from all angles;surrender and go with the flow; let go and just allow things to unfold at their own rhythm and pace and know that all is for the Higher Good. The Cosmic river flows and carries us to our next destination, to the next level of our existence.

Thanks for my "aha" moment!

The Divinity within you illuminates the world around you...
