Today is a Special Day

I heard many times over the years, this simple para-phrased thought ...

"Don't judge another until you have walked in their shoes."

And today I had a new awareness, a new realization about these words.

Today, I understood what these words now mean to me at this very moment in my life.

What Do You Say?

Dear Friend ... I was just wondering how many of us can say ...

"MyGod is with me ...
... when I awake ...
... during the day ...
... when I sleep."

And for some, there is a nourishing practice ...
... a practice of sharing with TheirGod ...
... an appreciation for their connection ...
... as this sharing soothes their Heartcenter with Silent-Knowing.

And know for some when connecting with TheirGod ...
... it re-tunes their energy frequencies of ...
... peace ... and joy ... and love ...
... and feel the energy frequency of Oneness for what was received.

How could I share love with someone ...
... if I didn't love myself?

And how could I love myself ...
... if I didn't know who I was.

Well, the time arrived when ...
... I stopped searching for "the-who" that I might be ...
... and accepted "the-who" that I was in that very moment ...
... and began to love myself with a Silent-Knowing.

And now I feel comforted ...
... as I share love with others.

Oneness with Ein Sof

Sometimes I choose to meditate to quite the fears causing an uneasy feeling in my Heartcenter.

And when I quite these fears ...
... an opportunity arises ...
... a joyful feeling of Peace and Oneness with Ein Sof ...
... as it soon blossoms with an inner smile ...
... and a Silent-Knowing that all is OK once more.

Towers in the Sky

I often worked hard building magnificent towers up to the sky ...
... but when I would finish and reach the top ...
... I did not know what to do next.

And now that I do know ... I've stopped building towers in the sky.

The Reality of Reality

Just listened to the words from this Rod McKuen song, "I'm at Peace", from 1974. Do you know of him?

I heard the words of this song reflect how I feel about "the-who" that I am in this moment of time ...

... because mostly "I am at peace" ...
... with a growing acceptance of the "Reality of Reality" ...
... and a lost passion for denying "What-will-never-be".

Yes, the time is getting closer ... and being at peace with the "Reality of Reality"

The Power of Compassion

There are "things" that all humans have in common, important things ...
... whether the humans are right or left brain thinking ...
... or have an entirely different way being.

And one of these "things" most don't like to talk about is simply this ...
... the pain experienced in one's heart and soul ...
... the pain that swoops down on us usually with little warning ...
... and often with a vengeance ...
... because something we dearly cherish and love has been negatively altered.

If there was someone who was your "unknown" enemy ... could they ever feel a similar kind of pain as you in their heart and soul as just described?

Here is an opportunity in achieving peace with those of apposing thoughts ... no matter who they are ... listen to and understand their "Pain" using the Power of Compassion.

Let them know you care ... because you are wise.

The most important thing in every relationship, as to whether it is successful or not ... is of course, how well you communicate with others ... and importantly with yourself too.

Now, to be aware, during each of the unique dimensions of your personal life, the methods of communication with your relationships of all kinds, have changed (or not) based upon your life experiences.

Ask yourself, "Am I truly satisfied with how my communications work in my life with the outside world?"

Only you have the answer.

One thing for sure ...

The journey I thought my life would take me on ... and the journey I have experienced thus far are light-years apart.

In hindsight, it's easy for me to say "Thank You" Universe for all the many challenging and difficult life lessons you provided ... and for being so darn patient with me​.

But the journey certainly was never easy ... and at times, it was emotionally debilitating, right from the get-go. Over and over, I experienced the pain from an "emotional-void". And I thought, "That's just how it is." ... like it or not.

This may sound silly, but I had no name to call this feeling of "emotional-void" as a kid ... it was just because it just was.

Today, I deeply appreciate how my awareness and understanding of Life and Love and Compassion have amazingly transformed the "the-who" I was ... to "the-who" I am in this very moment ... and then the next ... and the next ... with an ever evolving Dimensions of Personal Awareness.

With No Judgement ...

Remember if you will ... your Heartcenter continues to change as the years go by ... for some a few times and others, many.

And sometimes when this change happens, you feel you've emerged in new and different ways, as a changed "being" ... as if you were seeing the world from a new and fresh Dimension of Personal Awareness.

Whatever Dimension of Personal Awareness you are in, it's your Dimension, based on your life experiences ... with no-judgement ... no right or wrong. Cause what is, is ... and what ain't, ain't.

And for some of you, your life may be quite satisfying and suit you well. And for others, perhaps you may want to explore a fresh Dimension of Awareness that is in greater harmony with your Heartcenter ... and with your Godsoul too.

Dimensions of Personal Awareness with no-judgement ...

I am convinced that today is the 1st day of the rest of my life.

And so it will be tomorrow as well ... and the next day and the next ... the 1st day of the rest of my life ... again and again, etc, etc.

Another 1st day, with the opportunity to share Joy and Hope and Love.

Another 1st day. Thank God, another 1st day.

Yes, another 1st day to say, "I Love You".

And here's to 1st days.
