“Sometimes when things are falling apart, they may actually be falling into place.” ~ Author Unknown
Life is a series of hills and valleys. When we are climbing and conquering those hills, we are building and forming and creating our way upward. But, when we are coming down the opposite slope and heading for the valley…as sometimes happens in life…it looks like everything is falling apart and we worry that all that we have worked so hard to create is coming apart at the seams and we become discouraged. But if we look from our observer position, we might see that, even though things are unraveling or changing, they are actually pieces of the puzzle that are shifting around to bring about something new that we might not have even considered…had the shifting and falling apart not happened. How many times can we recall saying, “I never would have gotten HERE if THAT had not happened”? TRUST!
“Stillness is the space that life flows through.” ~ Marynance Schellenbach
Go into the Quiet, the Stillness, and listen for the voice of Life, Your Life. That voice that you can only here in the silence. Ask your questions…and hear the answers that you might miss through all the cacophony of every day life. There is where the flow moves.
“The spirit of (wo)man is an inward flame; a lamp the world blows upon but never puts out.” ~ Margot Asquith
One’s Spirit can never be vanquished. It is the Eternal Flame within us that will always be present, no matter how tough our lives can get. Look to that Flame for Light and Life. Trust that Flame will never go out…and watch that Trust fan the Flame into a golden ball of purpose and life. Do not focus on the darkness around the Flame…focus on the Flame and it will grow and inspire you.
