AUGUST 14TH, 2008: This morning when I was pulling out of the driveway the mailbox door was open. I had in my bag next to me my Netflix to return (which I usually hold on to for an extra 2 weeks). But today I stopped the car. I read this as the sign it was – to return my Netflix so I can get more movies. Profound! Well maybe not world changing but you get the point. Everything in our path is there with great purpose all we have to do is open our minds and hearts. At the same time it is important not to get caught up in the pitfall of asking why, after why, after why. Who are we to think we should understand the bigger reasons behind why things happen? Maybe we just need have faith. Once I surrendered to moving beyond the sudden death of my Father at the age of 59 years old to trusting the universe again my life got softer, I got softer. So today I wish you your own best strength, don’t lose trust even when you’ve been deeply hurt. Keep the faith and it will all be as it should be. Trust life, love life, love yourself….Silvia
TODAY’S INSPIRATION - Here is a quote from Unmistakable Touch of Grace by Cheryl Richardson
Every event we experience and every person we meet has intentionally been put in our path to help raise our level of consciousness. When we awaken to this fundamental truth, life becomes a true adventure, a spiritual adventure. The person who smiles at you while you are walking down the street is no longer a stranger. The phone call from an old friend who crossed your mind is no longer a surprise. The failed relationship that left you broken hearted is no longer a source of bitterness and pain. Instead it’s seen as a blessing in disguise, a gift that makes you stronger, more conscious, and ultimately, more alive.
