We must walk consciously only part way toward our goal, and then leap in the dark to our success.
Henry David Thoreau
It’s difficult to arrive at a destination if we don’t know where we are headed. This is equally true for our life journey. In order to realize our deepest desires, it is important to identify exactly what we want and stay focused on that intention with dedication, focus, and awareness.
Let us bring then our heartfelt desires into crystallized focus and putting our heart-centered attention on what we envision. In this way, we align ourselves to reach our intended destination, clear on what we hope to achieve and open to all opportunities that help us realize our dreams.
The real voyage of discovery consists not in seeking new lands but seeing with new eyes.
All around us are messages that lead us to believe our lives are ones of scarcity and lack and that competition with one another is the only way we can truly succeed. However, when we begin to witness the world—whether standing in the middle of a majestic forest or scanning the shelves at the grocery store—we come to understand that the entire universe presents itself to us and is ours to enjoy.
In order for us to truly experience everything the world has to offer, we must first come to appreciate all that we already have. By being truly grateful, we open the door to all the power, wisdom, and creativity of the universe, connecting ever more deeply with pure consciousness and its ability to usher anything we can envision into our lives.
Once the soul awakens, the search begins and you can never go back.
Light is around us and within us—it is our guide on the path toward self-realization. Light is what triggers us to wake every morning, allowing us to see . . . dissipating the darkness and shadows.
As we open to the light within, we connect to the divine light that illuminates our soul, awakening us to our real Self, and the light that connects all things. We find that we are one light connected to all light, universal connection, and consciousness. As this energy is awakened, there is no more searching or striving.
“What lies behind us and what lies before us are tiny matters compared to what lies within us.”
Ralph Waldo Emerson
When we are truly conscious, we may experience moments when our pure self shines through and suddenly life flows smoothly, sweetly, and peacefully. It is enough to simply be aware and be present. Nature takes care of the details.
