Be thankful this day for our home, planet Earth. When most of us think about the Earth, we think of it as a billions old rock; a rock containing, protecting and creating life inhabitants of all species. The Earth is a living organism; a mind boggling creation much like ourselves. Through the incarnation of the Earth came other life forms. With the various changes of the Earth's environment spawned the life form the Earth needed at the time. The Earth needs caretakers.
This has been a topic I have been feeling into for a while. As I look around the Universe, there are messages showing up around me and this is a subject we all are feeling too. What does it mean to be an Innate Being?
Questions usual arrive in our life when there is doubt or self-expansion. When we are as individuals faced with a situation with the possibility of multiple outcomes, we question the possibilities, not the desired outcome. When the questions arrive, we question the circumstances, not our self. We seek to grasp control of the situation bringing us the feeling of doubt or fear or to understand the growth of our soul.
From the time we wake up until the time we put our head down, we experience thousands of life moments. How many of us are aware of each moment in our day? We blindly follow a daily routine, performing mindless tasks. Yes we are functioning in the said moment, but what is the level of awareness of our human or spiritual functionality? There are moments when our higher self takes over and then become fully engaged in the present moment. Then there are other moments when we are not aware and act as drones. Each moment can consist of one singular function or multiple functions. All moments bleed into the next one. The question now becomes, how can we tell the shift in the moment to the next?
Our life's work is completed in phases. Some of us are very clear as to what we desire to be as a profession as children, and some of us mull around trying everything until we find it or it finds us. The reason why we choose a certain profession is for various reasons; it can be a result of life altering experience, a family business, a lucrative venture, or something bringing us pure joy. The profession chosen is not our life’s work, yet it’s a starting point. We all have a starting point to bring us closer to the true life’s work.
When we think of being sincere, one often thinks about conveying genuine emotion for any given situation or circumstance. Most often when one speaks or vents, we are searching for an ear to listen to our troubled heart. Are we the listener projecting a sincere act when hearing what other party is saying? Can we relate to their experience like it is our own? At times we can relate other times we can't.
Life mysteries are experienced daily, swimming in the unknown is filled with surprises, yet filled with routine. We know we are going to wake up, brush our teeth, bathe, eat, commute to work, care for loved ones, work, and so on. These are the known variables in our life, the routine. It is what happens outside the routine where the unknown becomes known.
Be thankful this day for the gifts we have to contribute to the world. We all have a gift or gifts. The gift(s) we have were given to us to make a difference in the world in which we live. No matter the size of the gift it meant to make a difference.
