Remove the old garment which no longer suites you
and step bravely into the new one –
weaved from an awareness
gained after years of struggle and pain.
Do not lose site of who you are
in that quiet space – where only reality exists.
You’ve paid a high price to get here –
no sense in giving it all back.Your life is here and now
Be present for it.
Live it wisely.
Nirmala Devi – 11/07/05
Not much to say about that except that I feel so close to “here and now” – I have never felt closer. In the past, like I have said, I have dipped my toe in this water – only to let some bully, some self-doubt, some life circumstance yank me off of that path and back to the tap-dance that comes with incessant people pleasing.
Read that quote again and really let the words sink in… give yourself a break “you’ve paid a high price….” “…no sense in giving it all back…” That’s a mistake I think so many of us make – we feel like we have erase the past to approach a stonger future – but it’s those battle scars that make us rich beyond recognition, it’s that “high price” that colours our soul and once we forgive and move on those colours shine and attract all of the goodness that we deserve.
So… today can be your day – to be present for it… to “live it wisely” Enjoy it!
