07.09.12 Truth & Wisdom
As I laid snuggled in bed this morning orchestrating my consciousness in my rising meditations – as I do every morning before my bare feet hit the cool wood floor – I got the message, text, tweet, post… whatever. I heard it loud and clear: “G-d bless you.”
No one sneezed or coughed. Although, now that I think about it, my man sneezed last night just before we slipped into our dream-weaving coziness. “Bless you,” I said while heavy in neon pink highlights of The Fire Starter Sessions passages.
Back to my morning meditation orchestration – it was just me and my angels orbiting. Love, gratitude, grace, faith – I was dialed in. Divine connection.
This morning’s meditation filled me with colossal amounts of gratitude. Like grateful for every graceful breath kind-of-gratitude. Straight up gratitude for being able to smooth out my rough edges. Seriously. Gratitude for every millisecond – every inhale, every exhale, every swallow, every touch, every tear for truth, every moment of heightened awareness and every beaming smile from deep joy. It all comes down to this milli-moment I exist in. And at this very moment I have a roof over my head, clothes on my back, clean water to drink, keen awareness, fancy digital gear to ‘socialize’ with, truth, a capable heart and an intelligent mind. All solid blessings in this very given moment.
Over the years, I’ve learned that my relationship to a Spiritual Source is my ultimate touchstone for love, gratitude, grace, faith and trust – a constant faith filter. In my biggest moments of frustration, my faith filter inspires me to re-think my perception and anchor to patience. I use it in split seconds – during moments of uncertainty, loneliness, frustration and doubt. Like, literally in holy moments. Instead of fading out of control, I remain connected to my spark, staying in control – no matter how hard the ‘make it a double on the rocks’ moment it is. Instead of reacting from a place of emotional stress, I filter the moment and recalibrate my thoughts and feelings. The bottom line: I am responsible for my own thoughts, feelings and actions. Always.
Only I can control the liquid in my skin. No matter how hot it boils.
I always have the choice to think, feel and act clearly. If not, I consume my self with negative thoughts, heavy emotions and tired reactions.
But when I take a holy instant to align with my faith filter, I am at ease – regardless of the chaos around me. And that is a solid blessing. Because I proceed cool minded and warm-hearted. I imagine that is my Spiritual Source’s vibe as well.
So today I glorify my Spiritual Source and utter with solid praise, “Bless you.”
