November Monthly Message 2010 Journey of Discovery
When we are open and receptive, we can find words of truth and inspiration everywhere, for example, in the song Already Gone by the Eagles.
"Just remember when you look up in the sky, you can see the stars, but still not see the light."
And..."Well, I know it wasn't you who held me down. Heaven knows it wasn't you who set me free. So oftentimes it happens that we live our lives in chains, and we never even know we have the key."
The point of this message is to encourage you to stay open and receptive to messages of Truth. Life can be an exciting journey of discovery when you let it be. Resolve to live your life alert and aware. See the stars with something more than just your physical eyes. Resolve to see with your heart. Resolve to see without fear.
When we look at life through eyes of fear, we have no choice but to shut down to protect ourselves. When we shut down in an attempt to stay safe, we are less safe . . . because it means we are living life with less intuition, less open to the Truth that expresses itself in every moment. We are focused on the fear in the mind, instead of the Truth in the heart.
Truth is always speaking to us. Always. When you know this, when you stay open to discovery, then your life has meaning because you see the meaning of life, which is self-discovery . . . discovering your true nature, the nature of everything. You allow yourself to be guided by light . . . and there is no need to fear the darkness when you are guided by light.
So oftentimes it happens that we live our lives in chains
and we never even know we have the key.
