YOU CAN’T GIVE UP

You Cant give up.jpgDear Human

You can’t give up.

You can’t give up on love because others are hateful. You can’t give up on believing in one another because you’ve been let down. You can’t give up on hope because pain came your way. You can’t give up on kindness because some people are cruel. You can’t give up on peace because war surrounds you. You can’t give up on dreams because they don’t always come true.

Life isn’t about everything being in order. Life isn’t about bliss. Life is about learning to live, love, hope and believe in the midst of perfect imperfection.

Life is messy, complicated, confusing and beautiful all at the same time. Life is the single best gift you have ever been given.

You can’t give up.

Love,
Sheri

WHERE IS YOUR LIGHT

WHERE IS YOUR LIGHT?

Dear Human,

There are days when you want with great intensity to be a better person, and so you look around for places to go and people to sit with who can help you achieve your best self. But you have no need to travel anywhere other than to journey within yourself. There you will discover that if anger could help you, you would have already been helped. If guilt could fix you, you would truly be healed. If fear could perfect you, you would already be perfect. If worry could make things better for you, you would have mastered all your problems. It’s time to let go of that which no longer helps or serves you my beloveds.

Look around you and then look within you and marvel at the splendor of your own light. Feel your daily desires, allowing them to reveal to you your magnificent and wondrously complete inner-self.

Today, may you find the strength to move on, no longer burdened by the mistakes of your past. May you remember what you already know, that you are a compassionate being capable of loving deeply and intensely, and longing to be loved the same way.

May you recommit to the wonder of the intangible attributes of your divine essence. May you listen to your sacred inner voice with intention to act; paying attention to all that the collective wisdom of consciousness wants to share with you.

And if you really want to experience the full magnitude of this life that you have been granted to feel, breathe, touch, and taste, give yourself permission to love without judging, without blaming, and without comparing. Allow yourself to be concerned with what others say of you or think about you only if it is true. Let the love of friends help you with your blind spots, having the courage to face your flaws and convert them to wisdom.

Learn to let the dead things go, to say goodbye to toxic and negative relationships.

And above all, may you always remember that your purpose is to be your authentic self, daily learning to make the most of the way that your mysterious and magical life unfolds. For your were born with everything you need to achieve what you were designed to contribute to this lifetime that you existence in.

Unbecome what keeps you from that magical understanding that you once possessed about yourself. Because behind that mind of yours, there is you. Pure and unadulterated awareness. one of the most precious, hallowed, numinous and venerable members of this universe. 

Love,
Your Fellow Space Traveler ~

BEING YOUR OWN GURU


THE BEST GURU

Dear Human,

No one can heal or fix another mans mind. You might feel stuck and like you are drowning in your own miry muck. You might not feel like you are able to move through difficult emotions. You may not even believe that there is a solution to your predicament. But you are never in any situation that you cannot rise above, crawl out of, or endure. Others may definitely facilitate teachings or skills required to take your thoughts captive and identify triggers. To be more in tune with the counselor inside of you. Many can aide you in truly comprehending that thoughts can lead to false perceptions, resulting in negative life outcomes. But you my beloved, are your own guru.

Discovering how to tend to your own wounds and tune into your your own infinite access to the wisdom of the collective consciousness, understanding your glorious, mysterious, and mystical identity is where it all starts. Learning to make meaning of, and letting go of the past, is crucial to your positive well being and your ability to move forward. The capacity to see life as the supreme gift that it is, good, bad, and all the in-betweens, is truly critical. Self-awareness, self-observation, mindfulness, and meditation are key to learning more about you, and thus the cosmos you represent. Yet still this is all about
you and what you can absolutely do.

Accepting that intrinsically everyone wants to do good is the beginning of unconditional love, for yourself and for others. Being open to the reality that life happens, hurt happens, disappointment happens, and walls have been built to protect your mind and heart is paramount to alleviating your dis-ease. Most assuredly, at the time of construction those walls were likely very necessary. But at some point you have to tear them down so that you can move outside of the boundaries that once kept you safe, but no longer serve you well. The fortifications that you once upon a time built to protect you, are now your prison, serving only to encourage the development of calloused emotions; allowing you to believe that there is only one right way to be in order to be safe. These barriers isolate your openness and reduce your sensitivity to the point that you or someone you love might even become cruel and unforgiving. But there is not one person on this earth who does not still posses their original, pure, and holistic beauty. Your essence of genuine kindness and real compassion that entered this existence upon your birth. Worry not though, because walls can be torn down. But you must do the work.

Remembering that you are simply morphing into a deeper and more authentic self will allow you to start the process of unbecoming. Taking the time to unravel the yarn of the old sweater that is hiding the true you takes much patience. And like the caterpillar who isn’t really a caterpillar but is actually a breathtaking butterfly, the task of transformation is often cocooned in pain. You likely misunderstand hardship and heartbreak, thinking you have done something wrong. But could it be possible that you are simply expanding your true character; understanding more profoundly that life as human is often messy, complicated, and yet so very exhilarating? Perhaps you are even wondering how best to make the most of what time you have been granted here on this resplendent planet in outer space.
Yes indeed, going through the labor of growing pain is very normal. And maybe, if I might suggest, even a wonderful experience. Knowing that all of the discomfort and doubt that you wrestle with is a gift, not a curse, is a crucial element to embracing and experiencing the fullness of your life. Remembering that you and only you can respond correctly to the stretching of your consciousness. You and only you can begin to explore your innate longings and aching’s. You and only you can see any form of hardship as your most beloved teacher, given to you to instruct and explode your glorious and sacred presence; allowing you to unveil in a most spectacular way the original awareness that resides within you. Even remembering what it means to be alive not just living. Everyday you can discover that which you already know; that you are truly magnificent, majestic, and miraculous. That you are born finished and complete. That you are and have always been enough. And that from this deep understanding of your identity and personal power, free and fabulous ideas can flow from your spirit into your mind, leading you to new and holy ground to stand upon. Both in your inner and outer space.

You have the ability to know that life naturally unfolds and there is nothing you can do but embrace it; remembering it is best to move with it instead of resist it. You are designed to correctly make your own choices, to discern which way you should go when you encounter a fork in the road; remembering that your primary responsibility is to discover how to navigate your most successful way on existences path.

And when you begin at once to live, and count each separate day as a separate life, you will be aligned more intimately with your sacred purpose. For you are indeed a rare and noble member of humanity. A bright and shining light of hope under all the pain that you have walled yourself within. You are an ever changing spiritual being having a human experience. You are so much bigger, grander, wiser, and capable than you realize. You are being lead by the light of the natural and intelligent spirit of this holy and supreme universe. You always have been. You need only stop and listen to the divineness that resides within.

It’s important to remember that you heal yourself with the simple things. By remembering the grass is green exactly where you water it, and learning to bloom where you are planted. By believing in the magic that once captured your youth, and allowing it to illuminate your life. By letting your beauty and the beauty of others naturally unfold. And finally but so importantly, by believing in that which you currently cannot see, yet intuitively seeing the possibilities of what is yet to be.

Love,
Your Fellow Space Traveler ~
