Hafiz said it so perfectly:
This place where you are right now
God circled on a map for you.
Wherever your eyes and arms and heart can move
against the earth and the sky,
The Beloved has bowed there –
knowing you were coming.
I could tell you a priceless secret about
your real worth, dear
But any unkindness to yourself
any confusion about others,
Will keep one from accepting
the grace, the love
The sublime freedom
divine knowledge always offers to you.
Wherever you are right now ... stop ... take a deep breath and fall into the knowing that you are exactly where you're supposed to be. Take that in. Precisely where you're intended to exist directly in this moment. It may not seem like it or maybe it does, but one thing is for certain; you are where you are with purpose and when you can believe that time magically begins moving with more ease.
Sometimes we get so caught up in what we think is going wrong in our lives that we're blind to the opportunities and experiences right in front of us. We get stuck and things feel congested. At times it's as if being in the center of our personal struggle is the only thing that exists. We know. We've been there. But what if we knew with absolute certainty that each moment we find ourselves in comes with purpose? What if softened into the wisdom that we are being guided? What if we accepted that? Seems pretty radical to us.
What happens when we decide to shift our presence from resistance to acceptance is nothing short of a miracle. When we resist life- life resists us. When we practice acceptance we can move forward. It's like opening up an energy vortex and allowing the opportunities before us to rise up crystal clear. It's in these moments that we can gain such insight and receive really powerful lessons. But we have to pay attention.
We've been feeling the power of presence SO MUCH lately. We've committed ourselves to showing up FULLY for ourselves m, for each other and for the work we contribute to the world and things are BLOWING UP - in the best way possible. It's not always easy to allow ourselves to be seen and heard, but it's always worth it. We dare you to try.
