Everybody has the same basic thing to forgive, and that was when we gave up the Spirit world and fell into the physical world.
We can look back and see where we thought, "I'll go down there and be back in just one life." Then we found out that we liked it here because it is a pretty nice place (in its own way). At some point, we come to the realization that we have to work this out.
So the basic thing we need to do is to forgive ourselves for forgetting that we are divine. That is the real message to open up the channel for our return to the Spirit.
Sometimes these daily messages are so deep you need waders on to even attempt reading them. But some days, like today, the message hits me. In a nutshell, we are all divine beings here on the planet having our human experiences. Some days, OK a lot of days lately, I'm way too hard on myself. My focus this week is to lighten up with myself. Let the negativity fall away and just be present with things going on in the moment. It's so important on a daily basis to recount the blessings we have and to look at the day with neutrality (and dare I say JOY???). Yes, joy is a choice. So is negativity. Which one do you think serves us better?
I'm cruising along with my quest to go vegetarian. This morning I made these kale chips which I put in my Bento Box for lunch today.
Check out the recipe
I'm also gearing up to get my Etsy shop up and running again. I'm planning to offer lots of happy art: aprons, journals, jewelry and much more. I'll keep you posted! What's that? You want a little sneak preview of a new item???? Ok, ok.....
What else am I JOYFUL about?
1. We are traveling this coming weekend to Breen's first triathlon of the season. I can't tell you how much I love being there to support him and see him as he crosses over the finish line!
2. I'm trying my hand at my own sushi rolls this week...thanks to the gift I bought myself for Mother's Day :))) Side note: I am trying to remain neutral about the price of sushi rice.
3. I'm going to slowly take the rest of this month to "Spring Clean" my art and jewelry supplies so that I can be ready to create some happy things.
