LIFE IS A JOURNEY

"The journey of a thousand miles begins beneath one's feet." --Lao Tzu
"We are seasoned travelers of the labryinth.  Losing our way and finding 
our way.  Traveling on the beaten path and the road less traveled. 
Eventually finding our way home to the place of spiritual rest and fulfillment.'

FROM THE VALLEY TO THE MOUNTAIN TOP

I AM TRIUMPHANT

MY LIFE PLEDGE


I am whole.

I trust my inner guidance.

I love myself no matter what.

I honor myself.

I am responsible for myself.

I am creating the best possible life I can experience.

I am the best version of myself in each moment.

I am grateful for the abundance of life. 


TODAY: Think of a challenge in your life that actually became a blessing. What valuable lesson and opportunitiy was within the challenge? How are you a better person as a result of this challenge?

Reflect on My Life Pledge as a personal salutation to honor and uplift yourself during the day. Make a vow to recite it daily to shift your spirit and change your mind-set.

                                               I AM FAITHFUL

When doubt began to set in on a desire deep in my heart, I asked for a sign.  My eyes focused on a car tag right in front of me that read "FAITH".   What an amazing and timely message!  Listen and be alert to  the signs, synchronicities and  inspirational messages,  Know that the universe undoubtly conspires in our favor.


TODAY: Reflect on an experience that highlights your test of faith and at the right itme, your prayer was answered or your desire manifested.


Focusing attention, time and energy on wrong throughts causes endless suffering. It takes movtivation and practice to be mindful and self-aware each moment. In daily practice, interject a prayer, mantra, or phrase to intervene and stop negative thoughts. Have faith and know that all is well and divine timing is in order.

I AM PATIENT

The ability to shape the course of one's life can only be exercised in the present, not the past or the future -K. Sri Dhamanananda

We generally hope for a successful career, opportunities to fulfill our passion, good family connections, positive relationships, and material possessions. We may become doubtful and frustrated when our personal timelines are not met. Reflect on the following questions to assess your perspective on patience.

Do you feel patience is important?

How patient are you?

Is it difficult to wait for something that you desire? How do you feel waiting for something?

How does focusing your attention make you nore patient?

How do you feel when you resist accepting something in which you have no control?

Do you find yourself reliving the past and thinking more about the future?

Can you learn from the past and move on?

Do you believe that things happen in their right time?

                      I AM FILLED WITH INFINITE POSSIBILITIES


Connecting with your inner voice helps you trust in yourself.  It is that gut feeling that gives you intuitive inspiration, wich is the inner knowing that guides you on your path. It speaks gently and points you in the right direction.

Have you ever followed your iinternal guidance system to take a particular action and later found it to be the right action?

Have you ever asked yurself a question, stopped to think about it, and found the answer was reavealed at a time you least expected?

Quiet the chatter in your mind though mediitation, mantras or nature walks and focus on the guidance within and counter negative thoughs with expressions of gratitude.

INSPIRATION FROM THE WEEPING WILLOW


The gentle whisper of the wind;

The glaring sun on each bent limb;

The blossoms fall like weeping tears,

Shedding sorrows through the years;

Rebirth, renewal, harvest and rest;

Life puts our souls to the test;

Weary from the trials of life;

Amazing grace endures the plight.

Our labor, toil, stress and strain;

Like the weeping willow, our strength sustains.


                                                                                       - Jean Farish (9/10/17)

                      Tribute to our brothers and sisters in Houston, Florida, and Carribean Islands


                                What are you grateful for today?




Be a lamp. Be a lifeboat. A ladder. Help someone's soul heal. Walk out of your house like a shepherd--Rumi

                                 I AM MY BROTHER'S KEEPER

  Tribute to our brothers and sisters in Carribean Islands, Houston                                                 and Florida

The soul's evolutionary journey strives to unite us with the divine essence of our true nature as spiritual beings radiating love. We seek the divine connection through expressions in our relationships. Rather than giving in to external societal values, our well-being and spiritual growth transcends these expecations to a higher state of being. Remember that all situations and people we encounter are there to teach us and propel us to live well and love more.

 Do you give service to others?

Are you compassionate with others?

Are you more aware of our similarities rather than differences?

How does helping and lifing others make you feel?

When you are experiencing a challenge or in a hard place, volunteer, do something for someone else, offer a smile, kind word, or good deed.

LIVE WITH AN OPEN HEART

In life, we travel through the stages, phases, and chapters of our lives. We do not know the gifts that await us on our

path of self discovery. The journey of life is essential for our spiritual evolution filled with mystery, wonder,

uncertainty, and adventure with meaningful lessons along the way. Find something to be grateful for during the hard and easy places of our lives.

What are some your most meaninful and memorial experiences?

Do you engage in activities that make you feel alive?

Reflect on a positive experience that brings you joy?

Are you fully engaged and awake as you experience your life in each moment?

Grace means undeserved kindness. It is the gift of God to man the moment he sees he is unworthy of God's favor-Dwight Moody

THE SWEETNESS OF GRACE

Reflect on a siutation that you find yourself unable to accept.  Perhaps it is a betrayal, loss, or regret.  Write down the experience in detail. Draw a line down the center.  Write on one side the positve and write on the other side the negative.  Write down the consequences for being stuck in this space of nonacceptance.  I am sure the negative side outweighs the positive.   Make a conscious decision to forgive yourself and others in order to release the situation and reflect on what you have learned for your personal growth.  Burn the paper and release the ashes to Mother Earth as a symbol of transmutation.  

GRACE IS SUFFICIENT!
