Thoughts For The Day

 

TH 1

“Darkness is simply you being absent from being fully yourself.” ~ Dr. Eric Pearl

MarDrag’s Thoughts:

When darkness comes across our path, and we are lost and cannot see the Light, we look around us for the switch that will turn the Light back on and illuminate our way. But, it is not the Light outside us that is missing…it is the Light Within Us, our special, unique, bright Light that we need to look for and rekindle. For it is that Light…the Light we hold within us, that glows and shines upon our path to brighten our way. And our Inner Light shines the brightest when we are fully present, fully being ourselves…our True Self. Look for the Light within when faced with Darkness. It is the only Light that is always there for us and will show us the way out.

“Stop beating yourself up. You are a work in progress; which means you get there a little at a time, not all at once.” ~ Author Unknown

MarDrag’s Thoughts:

How big can those paddles get? You know, the paddles we beat ourselves up with regularly. That can be quite large, heavy, and powerful. The paddles of judgment through which we tell ourselves we are not smart enough, attractive enough, successful enough…or “any” enough. And most importantly…we are not moving fast enough. But consider that…when walking any path, be it spiritual, life, or hiking…we only get along the path by…taking one step at a time. Putting one foot in front of the other to make progress. And no matter how we may hurry ourselves along…each step is still meant to be taken. So we must put those paddles down and stop criticizing ourselves for not being/doing enough, fast enough. We are not meant to “get there all at once”…for then, what would we have to live for? Savor each step…and let your path tell you the Time.

wrapped gift

“To live is the rarest thing in the world. Most people exist, that’s all.” ~ Oscar Wilde

MarDrag’s Thoughts:

Life is truly a gift. To be able to Live…to have Life, to make choices, to have dreams, to fulfill those dreams, to have challenges and overcome them…to Love, Laugh, and Cry. This is all the stuff of Life…and yet we would squander it all with Worry, Defeat, and Hate.

What does Life mean to you? What is Living to you?

Think about a parcel…left on your door step, wrapped in bright shining paper and bows, with a note on it saying…”This is your gift of Life, Live it well”.

What would be in that package when you open it?? Think about it…and Live THAT!

Blessings!

  2. Good morning!
    I read this yesterday and again just now. I really like it and I have thought about it.

    Thank you for the words of encouragement and support. One step at a time, don’t beat myself up, I am enough. Now if i can use those paddles to hit myself ONLY when i forget that, to snap out of it…and just remember that i am enough and i am taking the steps to get where i want to get. About the package … I should take the advice to hart “live it well”.
