There are no mistakes, just experiences.
Despite how long our spirits have been around, the ‘us’ that shares our body at this time on this adventure is so young. How could we possibly have known to do anything differently when we are only now learning these grand lessons? No need to beat ourselves up over decisions and actions of the past. We did the best we knew how to in that moment—if we knew to do better, really truly understood the inner workings of our Self or the other and the situation to a greater degree, then we would have responded differently.
What happened is the only thing that could have happened. We are always learning! We are always growing! We are always given the opportunity to show our progress; there are no missed opportunities. There are infinite make-up tests—and it’s not a test that will be graded. No, it’s more like individual equations that we get to solve with open notes and help from the whole class. Move through the different sub-parts of each equation to come to a final answer, and if in the end it isn’t the most suited answer, back track to the point of confusion, correct it and move forward.
All is well.
This is the only job that matters. Know your Self. This is the constant.
Constantly ask, ‘How is this serving me?’… ‘What is the most life affirming choice?’… ‘Am I seeing my Self clearly?’… ‘How can I be in total service to my Self?’ When all our concerns come down to what is in our own best interest, the best laid path presents itself. It’s that easy.
Centered focus need not blind us from the well being of others—but it is important to note there is no need to judge ourselves for being our number one. Who else could fill that spot? We are on this adventure for our own soul’s intention. This may include others and often times our purposes will intermingle…but this journey is individual. What do we want it to look like?
Forget all those imposed beliefs and restrictions about who we are, what we’re doing here, or what we’re capable of. What are we aching for? What makes our hearts skip a beat? In the quiet moments by the sea, what does she whisper in our ears? Why do we dance, and for whom are we really dancing for? This is what matters. We are always connected. We are always in the Flow. Messages surround us at all times.
And in case we ever forget, hear this;
We are perfect.
We are whole.
We are beautiful, and it is quite appropriate to think, speak, act and dress like it.
Let us eat mangos and frolic in the ocean. Let us pamper ourselves at all times. Let us shine our gorgeous hearts brightly, even when there’s no one else around. Especially when there is no one else around. Let us acknowledge all the awesome beings that walk into our lives as indication of our own awesomeness. Yes, all that surrounds is merely a reflection of what’s harboring inside. If we don’t like what we see, we can check in. What hidden aspects of our true nature are wanting to be seen? What feelings have we been denying? Let it all out, sister/brother. We are the more stronger for every tear shed.
And lets remember our roots! Not as a hindrance, not as a limiting factor into who we are now or who we can become. Remember all things that make us into this solid being and give proper thanks. Also bear in mind/heart grounded-ness.
We are free beings that see things as they are, not wishing for them to be any other way…feet firmly on the earth walking the path with grace.
Let us believe in ourselves.
Let us believe we are supported.
Let us believe there are no mistakes, just experiences.
Let us enjoy the ride!
I love you.
Danielle Weir: Transparency has lifted my veil so I can see you, and you can see me. I’m in deep romance with the moon and serenade her with my howl. When I eat, I leave no crumbs—please remember to lick your bowl without shame. I think crying is just as ecstatic as orgasm and encourage you all to prove me right. I love words. I love love. I am in love with you! More written meanderings of love found here. – See more at: http://www.elephantjournal.com/2013/02/all-of-life-is-my-muse-danielle-weir/#sthash.14C1C8DN.dpuf
