Guiding Thought

Today, we decide to give our hearts reign.

Trusting in love, assured with its gentle comfort, we invite our hearts to lead us with joy and peace to joy and peace.

We surrender our minds and wills to our heart’s love.

Anticipation is in the air. It’s an internal buzz of excitement accompanied by the thought, “It’s happening”.

But I don’t know what “it” is.

When I began drawing the picture today, I knew the triangles were to represent flagstones, as on a path. I knew that I was to make them all a-jumble, wider apart at first (the lower-left hand), then coming closer together as they moved across the page, until they merged. I knew the how, but not the why. I also knew “it” was the same as the feeling of anticipation; I don’t know what “it” represents. The merging triangles were like the merging of situations and circumstances of the “it” that’s happening.

At times like this, when there is a moment of being on the verge of “what’s next”, it is important to remember to remain steadfast, especially because there is so much still unknown.  It’s important to keep my mind on the good, on service to God, on the positive, highest thoughts and feelings I can, and to release anything that is heavy or holding me back.

I’ve been releasing feelings of inadequacy, of “not knowing what I am doing”, and of “not doing ‘it’ right”. Release has come in the form of tears, and of prayers, of remembering that even as an adult I am learning, and that I still go through a baby-step, trial-and-error process of learning.

I’ve been easy on myself, gentle with myself—and for this, I am glad. I’ve been embracing this feeling of “it’s happening” with my heart, with my imagination, knowing there is so much good in my life, and knowing there is more coming!

How grateful I am for life and what it brings me, how life moves me, how life itself communicates with me…and I am grateful I take the time to listen and follow.
