Early one morning, as I got out of my car and walked into work a large truck raced past me and screeched to a stop in the parking lot. A woman nearby noticed and very angrily commented – “that is terrible and he has a baby in the car!” as she pushed her way ahead.

I stopped in my tracks and realized I work at a hospital – “he has a baby in the car” means he has an ill child! My perception immediately shifted from noticing a rude driver to compassion for a father trying to get help for his baby.

That touched me deeply and I looked around to make sure his way was clear to come through. As he approached me he said “Excuse me, I parked in the wrong lot, do you know where the nearest ATM is to pay for parking?” Without thinking I handed him $20 and told him where the entrance was for the clinic.

In a few short minutes my entire life came into focus! That was such a fantastic experience and I hope to always remember that perception can lead to amazing insight if you look closely enough!

Self Acceptance

I can’t truly love or accept anyone else until I can love and accept myself. Not later under some improved state or condition but right here and right now just as I am! I need to make a promise to myself that I will love, honor, respect, appreciate and cherish who I am at this moment.

Then as I look out into the world I will know that the beauty I see is equal to the beauty within.

Let Go

I’ve been hearing “Let go and let god” a lot lately. Although I don’t think of it as God I do believe in the absolute higher power of the Universe. When something is coming into my awareness often enough for me to notice that means it is time for me to stop and pay attention to what the universe is trying to tell me.

Usually it is that I am trying to force my own will instead of accepting what is. It is easier to forget than remember but I must find acceptance before I can have peace.

My daughter sent me a photograph of my new grandson while I was at work today. Just looking at that beautiful little boy brought tears to my eyes. As I shared the picture with a co-worker he said to me “You must not be restful right now”.

That describes perfectly what I am feeling - not restful to be away from this precious child! Since the moment he was born all of my heart and attention are focused on planning the next time I will be able to see him again…. Then I will rest.

Rockets of Desire

I am learning to be truly grateful for every difficult or uncomfortable experience. The more I go through the more I realize that it only serves to propel rockets of desire for me to try something new!

It feels so wonderful to be able to turn that bad energy into something good. I feel very sorry for those people who are in so much pain that they are locked into that energy. I still have plenty of hurt feelings and moments of wishing that it were something else but then I realize that I have been given a great gift.

Every struggle reminds me of all the beautiful possibilities that await me when I let myself follow my desire!

Something New

It is always so wonderful when I learn something new. It isn't always the most comfortable thing to experience but after I have moved past the pain I can really look at what has occurred and it becomes very clear what I need to do next.

It also helps very much to have a true and supportive friend to help you stay honest and find the rainbow after the rain....

Kairos is an ancient Greek word meaning the right or supreme moment. While Chronos refers to chronological time (clocks and calendars), Kairos is the time in between, a moment in which something special happens (infinity, joy, love, the sacred). That is what I felt the moment I held my grandson for the very first time.
