Do you ever ask, “What is the purpose of us being here now?”
The thing that is really important to me at the moment, is this:
We all reflect the global. We make the world. We are the world.
The purpose of life is really simple.
The purpose of life is to live a life of purpose.
One of my callings is to help others, help humanity and help the world. Of course, I have had to begin by helping myself. It all begins with the self.
I am calling for brave co-creators.
We live in times of great intensity. As the intensity grows, the importance of finding sacred spaces within, is elevated.
The crises played on the world stage are a battle of polarities. The sooner we clear away the darkness, the sooner humanity can embrace the light. Right now, we are on the brink, on the edge of a grand epiphany, an awakening of humanity. Long-predicted by the ancient Maya and other vastly under-estimated civilizations, these times are daunting and yet filled with unmatched opportunity for self-growth and awareness.
Sacred living is an awakening to the sacredness and interconnectedness of all life—the all-encompassing spirit of Life, Gaia, God, Holy Spirit that flows throughout eternity.
Sacred living requires action and presence that comes from a deep internal core wisdom.
I define “sacred living’ as a respect and reverence for all living beings especially the self. This translates into actions of grace, compassion and impeccable kindness for all life. The forces of yin-yang opposition are sublime and intrinsic to all life. The DNA of our life force contains a living spirit which is everlasting and married to the Creator force.
The Big Bang ties us all together physically and metaphysically in coming from the same material. We may see others as foreign, or even other planets as foreign, yet the basic material of all life stems from the same kernel of energy and condensed mass. Moreover, many are coming to see themselves as part of this energy, and hence intrinsically sacred.
Imagine looking upon a fellow being as a stranger or foreigner, especially when that being is a human. It makes no sense. Yet, many look in the mirror and see a reflection of a stranger.
The sense of coming to know oneself is the gateway to sacred living.
Without self-love, we inherently view ourselves as foreigners and everything external reflects what is within—therefore, everything outside of us is perceived as threatening.
Sacred living is about finding balance, safety and purity within one’s own form, and then seeing that externally in the world. Sacred living is really coming back home to the Divine self that is you.
Here are three inspired action steps I recommend practicing for manifesting sacred living everyday:
1. Love unconditionally.
Part 1: Tell someone you love them. (the easy part!)
Part 2: Spend at least 1 week twice daily standing naked in front of the mirror naked telling yourself “I love and accept you.”
Love, joy, and happiness exist in the space of stillness between fear and thoughts of lack.
These feelings are always here in the now just waiting to be invited into your experience and consciousness. Love is a constant essence and a constant state of presence within life. Don’t wait for tomorrow to tell your loved ones that you care. Today is all you have.
2. Feel your infinite nature.
Go outside into your favorite place in nature and get as naked as possible (barefoot is the minimum).
Meditate on where your body begins and ends and where you feel yourself within your body (Most of us hold our energy and consciousness mostly in the head and upper regions).
Feel the support of nature around you and feel its beauty expand within your being, so that you become one with nature, and nature becomes one with you.
If you can’t go outside, find a flower to commune with. You are way beyond what you thought you were. With God, you can paint the sky with any color you choose. Letting go leads you to discover much more than you ever knew. The mind is in every cell of your being. The heart transcends matter and goes beyond you.
You are an infinite being and whatever you think you are, you go way beyond that.
3. Live in an inspired way .
Write a private letter to yourself—answering these questions:
What does living inspired mean to me?
What would I need to do, be and have in order to live this way?
What is stopping me from living my dreams?
How many ways have I already started to live inspired?
You are your own inspiration.
There is nobody holding you back from doing this, but yourself. Be in awe of possibility. Be in awe of expressing your true essence. Be in awe of love.
Be in awe of life…
Love elephant and want to go steady?
