Re-Creation…

 And he brought me up from the pit of misery and from the mire of destruction; he set my feet upon a rock and he has made my ways ready.                                                                                            (Psalm 40:2- Aramaic Bible)

Every day I am being newly created in some way. Through some brief epiphany and experience a new level of “me” emerges. As I sit in the afterglow of the light that has dawned and as the emotions are settling around me, I begin to ask myself- what have I learned?

Generally, and hopefully, I will always learn to smile in the face of new adversity. In this fresh new place that I have “arrived at” I find an urgency to thank God as I rise above the staleness into a fresh new wellspring of inspiration flowing through me. Once released, the sicknesses, deaths, hurts and pains that held me now transform me from their mires of sludge as the light of reality now burns within me once again.  A new wind blows and I am able to soar upon the uprising currents higher than before.

How many of us do a daily reality check as to how absorbed we have become by the worldly things that have knocked us off center? How many of those things that have us in our grip are really that important? How many toxic thoughts do we re-play over and over again that threaten our health both physically and emotionally? It can be a challenge consistently monitoring those under-grumbles or the internalizing of emotion.  The wisest thing I can do for myself is to let go of the “roles” I’m in and totally let go. I need to ask myself- “Who am I?” on a daily basis. Let God fill those cleared areas. In that space is all the power we will ever need for true greatness.

When we meet real tragedy in life, we can react in two ways–either by losing hope and falling into self-destructive habits, or by using the challenge to find our inner strength.       (Dalai Lama XIV)

    I like to think of myself as a little boy who runs into the throne room and jumps in Daddy’s lap. He said I come boldly to the throne, right? Well, that’s who I am.

  2. ‘The wisest thing I can do for myself is to let go of the “roles” I’m in and totally let go’ is the best advice I’ve heard for following your heart and doing what makes you happy in life. Lovely post🙂

  3. It’s a choice whether to be happy or not to be. I chose to be happy on most days. I am having trouble letting go of my house and having to move, but somehow I know that it’s only a house and in that just a nice memory of a place I enjoyed being, but the people in my life are everything and the experiences.
