The moments before the sun rises are my favorite of the day. As I write this, the orange glow of the new day is slowly making itself seen over the horizon, bringing new light to the deep blue early morning sky. The air is crisp, with only a hint of a breeze to greet the awakening world. The stillness envelopes, the quiet heals.
This is the day the Lord has made. I am going to enjoy the gift of another day, and on this first day of 2019, I am going to spend it where I feel a most profound sense of peace, amongst the majestic redwoods.
It is said that we are not human beings having a spiritual experience, rather, we hare spiritual beings having a human experience. Let that sink in. As spiritual beings, we are infinite, powerful, abundant. Far too often, we allow ‘life’ to cloud who we really are. Dreams are deferred, expectations of others govern our actions and place limits on what we can achieve. We allow the actions of others to define our happiness.
Choose a different perspective. Set an intention to see yourself as a spiritual being and you will see your life begin to change. No longer is your sense of self dictated by others. No longer are you worried about what others will think of you, or whether you can ‘keep up with the Jones’.’ Removing the shackles of expectation and fear unleashes the freedom to be truly and authentically you.
