Are you living your truth?

Is it based on your belief, in the deepest part of your heart? Is it that thing you want to be, to do and have about which you rarely speak to anyone? Is it that sacred place in your spirit that lets you know no matter what that you are really okay?

Are you living your truth?

Are you doing what brings you peace and joy? Are you smiling to yourself in the face of adversity, believing you are a divine creation of a loving Father and Mother? Are you beautiful and strong? Powerful and humble? Understanding and merciful? Intelligent and faithful? Protected and prayerful? Is your truth plainly clear and simplistic? Does it bring you the understanding that all is well without when all is well within? Are you living your truth all day, every day, when others tell you it is impossible, impractical, irrelevant and dumb? Is the truth of your being as expression of God? If not, are you really living?

Can you surrender to your truth and live in its being?

The Sea of Life

"I am the one whose mouth is pure and whose hands are clean."
- The Book of Coming Forth by Day, translated by Dr. Maulana Karenga

As we pass through the sea of life, we meet many types of fish. Mud fish sling dirt in order to keep themselves clean. Guppies have big mouths that are always moving, but guppies are always being eaten up by bigger fish. Barracudas knock you out of the way, get in the way and never go away. Eels slither around on their bellies, eating what others leave behind. They do nothing for themselves, so they want what you have. Crabs move from side to side. Today they are on your side, the next day the are not. Flounder have both eyes on one side of their heads. They can only see things one way. Crayfish move backwards. Sea horses eat their own. Whales blow air out of the top of their heads. Sharks attack all other fish. Angel fish float around with no idea of what is going on. Then there are the salmon. They always swim upstream; and no matter how far they swim, they never forget how to come home.

Do you know who you are in the sea of life?

For unto whomsoever much is given, of him shall much be required.
- Luke 12:48

Have you ever wondered why certain people are expected to do things a little faster or better than everyone else? The simple answer may be because they can. Have you ever wondered why you are expected to do the impossible, achieve the unattainable or overcome the insurmountable? Very simply because you can. You know how you can just look at sombody and know they can do it? Well, the exact same thing is true about you. Unfortunately, we are not always aware just how magnificent we are. The same light others see shining blinds us about ourselves. We become content being like everyone else when something inside tells us we are not. But we plod along being angry or bitter when others expect us to do what they cannot. The key is not to do what others do and say; it is to know we can, believe we can and do what we can to the best of our ability. If we know what to epect from ourselves, we will always live up to our greatest expectation.

I am expecting as much as I can because I CAN
