Creation surrounds us daily. With creation comes a story or history. We all have our own personal history allowing us to know more about ourselves to grow and have the opportunity to change who we are or became. Each one of us has a story, yet we let the story of our life define us and yes at times defining moments change us.
When most of us think of temples, we think of a gathering place of worship, a place to pay homage to God or "God Like Figure". The true temple is the light in us. The place where we go within to pray and receive answers to the prayers prayed. When we meditate or pray, we sit in our temple to commune with the Divine Source. We sit in the sanctum of oneness to voice our intentions. Our intentions are carried on light waves to be heard and shared with the Divine Source.
This ten year journey of gratitude has taught me many perspectives of this beautiful energy we allow, once recognized in the daily life. This journey, like many started out with the feeling of being lost and experiencing multiple life changing events.
Competition is the contrast to enlightenment, without it how would truly know what enlightenment is. There must be contrast in all things, each must have its opposite for us to gravitate to our truest desires.
When something shows up in our life, do we pause to appreciate it or do shrug it off because it's is know exactly what we want? Do we shrug it off because this is a fact we already know about self or something we don't want to hear? Think about why we turn something away.
Being committed is taking a stand for the choices made. The life we live is all by choice, and unfolds through divine planning; a planning we partake in and have the final say in how our life is to be. When there is something not going according to the life plan, we then know it was not our choice. How do we know, we can feel, sense when our life is proceeding as it should; though there are moments we sense or feel are a bit difficult, those are the lessons we chose to learn.
The elders of the community always say "life is what you make it". You are the creators of your life destiny, through choices made. Life is a multiple choice, where you can choose which path to take. I can say what seems to happen by chance or coincidence really is not. The path and choices are just a manifestation of what your true desires are. The path, choices, and lessons along the way to fulfilling your purpose is preparation time. Some of us get derailed from that path with the tangibles of life.
Our presence is awareness of our whole-self. As beings, we are comprised of organic matter and pure energy. However, our organic bodies are just another form of energy. In essence we are just energy in its many forms. Our presence is the energy felt by self and others around us. The presence given off is related to the range of emotions felt, everything from love to fear. When we feel a heightened emotion from life or situation; our presence/energy changes to accommodate the shift.
