The Ancient Ones knew that we each create our own environment, regardless of the conditions of our surroundings.
How you see your world, how you connect with all its parts and all the people you encounter, invites your response. Your response is your choice. Your choice is based on what you know … what you learn … what you are given.
When you choose to take a Sacred Breath before you respond, you receive the gift of grace-filled space. In that space, you become the leader … showing the way with compassion. You are able to observe the circumstances around you before you participate in them.
In giving of your compassion, you become the receptacle of the Great Spirit’s loving care … and in your surroundings, others are brought into the calm of your presence.
When you wait until anger is spent, you allow listening to begin.
When you accept … when you express gentleness … you become the example of Honor.
When you master what you think about, you create what you desire.
Consider this week’s quote:
What you see and hear with your senses is not necessarily the Truth.
As you embrace new thoughts, your mind creates new patterns. You see with new eyes. As you hone and polish, with time and care, the shape of your own Spirit, you become the masterpiece the Creator saw at the moment of your birth.
Nurture yourself, the Native American Elders say, to discover your true beauty. Embrace your new thought process … discover the power of letting go of old habits which no longer serve you.
Sacred Breath fills your spirit … surrounds your heart … clears your mind. It strengthens your body.
Breathe deep! The Source of your power is waiting for you!
Live on Purpose … Change the World!
