HUMILITY MONTH: DAY 7: “It’s the ‘everyday’ experiences we encounter along the journey to who we wanna be that will define who we are when we get there.” ― Aaron Lauritsen
We are all on this journey together…doing what we do, in the hopes of improving ourselves as we go…to do better things and become better people.
No one I have ever met has expressed a desire to become a bigger asshat, but some do. We forget our noble dreams and aspirations when we are fearful or believe ourselves to be abandoned and without hope. None of those is real, but Ego tells its story, and there we are…asshats!
Each moment we choose something else, something higher, something fearless, we are given that sense of connection we are looking for but cannot find in fear.
The more frightened we become and the more we live in that fearful space, the less connection with that Universal Power we are going to have. I want to stay fully plugged in. That is not possible, but I do get to have the majority of my time spent in that space. And I am grateful and happy and content.
Fear is ugly and tells me its story, but I know better most of the time. I want to let go of the habitual training of my lifetime, but it will have its way.
It will always be the default setting wherein I am stuck. Therefore, I must work diligently to become the person I want to be, plugged into the Source at all times and living from that space. Letting go of Ego and being the spiritual child of a loving Universe that I know I have seen in the mirror a few times. I love being HER! The more I work toward this, the closer and more encompassing it becomes. Today I see the fruits of the 30+ years I have been around here and working.
There is nothing without the effort and consistent work, but it is still ALL grace. I just really hope that my ongoing practice of gratitude and service will keep me in the world the way I feel best, in gratitude and service!
