Say not, “I have found the truth,” but rather “I have found a truth.”
Say not, “I have found the path of the soul,” but say rather, “I have met the soul walking upon my path.”
For the soul walks upon all paths. The soul walks not upon a line. Neither does it grow like a reed.
The soul unfolds itself like a lotus of countless petals.
Your heart knows in silence, the secrets of the days and the nights.
But your ears thirst for the sounds of your heart’s knowledge.
You would know in words, that which you have always known in thought.
If the stars are out there in the daylight, and we don’t see them, what else don’t we see?
Perhaps we need the contrast, the foil, the opposite to see what is hidden.
It really is a gift to appreciate what we have, and not take it for granted. There is a saying, that some dream of what we see as everyday normal, common place. I’m not saying this is bad, or that we are decadent.
Rather, it’s the difference between seeing objects and seeing essence. Being thankful for a spoon is just as important as being thankful for a smartphone.
Affirmations believing your spoken word
Affirming truth for you
I am going to give a few
And they are really powerful
and say, “Thank you.” I keep repeating this as long as the bird sings.
No one ever told me to do this. I just know to do it.
I am not necessarily thanking the bird, although I include that too,
but I am rather, “giving thanks,” to everything, everybody, everywhere.
You can say I am thanking God, All That Is, the Presence.
What’s an invisible helper?
Some may call an invisible helper God.
Some may call an invisible helper an angel, a loved one who has passed over.
It really doesn’t matter.
It’s whether you think there is someone there to assist you.
I believe, I didn’t always, but I do believe now that there is a presence always there to help me.
So what I do in my life, is that I call upon that helper.
I think of that helper sitting beside me at work in a chair.
I think of that helper as someone with me in my car when I am driving somewhere.
