Be You

Be Inspired: 01.16.18

Keep in mind that 100% of the journey takes place within…
the dark.

It’s brilliant design forces us to grow our light in order to see inside ourselves…
where Home is.

Opening to Greater Awareness

As I said on a post the month I began this blog, it takes great courage to face who we’ve been…how we’ve been…what we’ve done and said, or not done and not said…all the while having great compassion and love for ourselves. To look with gentle eyes. To forgive ourselves our past. To be bold enough to let it all go so that we can see who we truly are. Not only does it take courage, it takes commitment, discipline and tenacity. And the willingness just to begin.

The energies are ripe for this work. There is so much available in terms of support, resources, inspiration these days, including the Wise Words posts on my blog. Here’s another great way to get started:  Brene’ Brown, the author of the quote above, has given a couple of Ted Talks you may enjoy. My first exposure to her work was the talk she gave on vulnerability. If you’d like to listen you can do so for free on the Ted Talks website. She’s also done work with the never more potent Oprah and has a new book out called Daring Greatly.

Opening to greater awareness…exploring Self…this is the work of a lifetime. I applaud all who take it on. You have my honor and blessings.

Wise Words: The Age of Self

This is the age of self.
A time for one to realize and to become who they are.
In the truest sence.
It is the time to be self-full.
Not selfish in the way that others taught you.
Rather in the best, purest, highest sense.

This is the age of self, for those who are ready.
To fully allow the free self.
To let go of limits and predispositions, things that hold you back.
This is the time to set yourself free.
To put down the baggage that you carry.
For if it is a burden, it is not yours.

This is the age of self, a time of freedom.
A time to birth the creator that you are.
Coming into your own being.
Beholden to no one, no thing.
Allowing your sovereignty to come to life.
Radiating your truest self.

In the deepest part of you there is a knowingness.
A deep desire to return to self, the I AM, the I exist.
That deep desire to hear your voice without all of the others
Over the voices of others.
A deep desire to identify your self as yourself.

This is the age of self.
