Don’t waste your life trying to be what others want you to be. Be who you are and be better for it.
There is so much negativity in this world; we all need a bright light to shine forth and lead the way. Be that light. Be that betterment.
“Don’t waste time waiting for the cosmic tumblers to click into place. You are not a passive anticipant of the good life; you are a dynamic, active participant!”

Good Fortune, Luck.
Something unusual happened to me this evening; I was feeling rather insecure about a myriad number of things and something told me to go with my cousin for prayers. So I did.
And am I ever Thankful!
Tonight I was greeted by Familiarity and welcomed by Grace. Embraced by Light and carried into Kismet. I walked into a prayer hall and walked out with Spirit guiding and Blessing. Tonight, the answers came. God works through people.
Write. Sing. Dance. Take Pictures. Act. Make. Dream. Discover. Explore. Love. Laugh. Have Faith. Teach.
There is a process much larger than all of us that hears us when we most need to be heard and loves us when we forget to love ourselves.
Tonight, I was reacquainted with Kismet and had a conversation with Serendipity.
We have all been programmed since our collective childhoods to believe that the world works in a certain way. But here’s the truth of how this incredible Universe unfolds: “We must be willing to let go of the life we planned so to have the life that is waiting for us.” (Joseph Campbell) For many of you, it will require an “unlearning” of everything you have been taught– the programming of “you have to.”
You have to go to school and you have to then get a job with benefits and you have to have a retirement plan and you have to get married and you have to have children, etc, etc.
The real truth is that the only thing you “have” to do is Live. Be who you are at all times. Love this. Love you. Love life. Re-write the software that planned your life before your life began.
Re-write it, learn anew, learn what the Yogis and the Sufis and the Mystics and the Gnostics and the Taoists have been saying for centuries: “You are the key. And you are enough.” Life is short- be brave.
It is your turn now
“It is your turn now,
you waited, you were patient.
The time has come,
for us to polish you.
We will transform your inner pearl
into a house of fire.
You’re a gold mine.
Did you know that,
hidden in the dirt of the earth?
It is your turn now,
to be placed in fire.
Let us cremate your impurities.”
Trust in the Source of Being. This means trusting the mystery of creation. The universal Source of all creation, invisible though it may be, guides you just as it guided your development in the womb. When you trust in Divine intelligence, you cooperate and invite the shift to Meaning.
