Connecting to your truth River

RIver pic“Be sober at all times,” writes the great biblical scholar Paul. What is this sobriety that he is talking about? It is connecting to your truth River. It is about being present, aware and at a level of consciousness  that you can Create at your highest level.

Just imagine a river with enormous amounts of water carrying its contents knocking, as it makes it way to the eventual ocean. The contents are knocking because they are bumping into each other or the riverbed itself. And, if you listen to the noise of the river, its like a quarrel among its contents. You know why? They all don’t belong there, but they have found themselves in the same situation. This is the same with the stuff in your life. They are colliding with each other at times. As the rocks, pebbles, and debris bump into each other, the total noise depends on the volume of water. Less volume, the higher the decibels, and louder the noise.

So is your connection to the truth River (truth here means true self). When you are not fully connected to your truth river, there is a lot of background noise, and thus, a lot of distraction because your River volume is low. You are not fully connected, so you are not committed to the connection. The rocks and pebbles in your life are rolling along at very high decibels. The sounds are very audible to you at the human level, drowning out all else that is happening around you. This can manifest as the noises in your head. They can be audible to other folks on your Alphabet Circle™ and manifested in your demeanor. They can also be just other things that you carry along your life journey.

Just as the river ends in the ocean, where it gets rid of its contents, the same is true for the soul.  When you connect to this river of truth and the volume is right, the contents will flow until the River’s end. Your River’s end is where you resolve your issues or matters on the Alphabet Circle—your life journey. You can get rid of these by looking within, and making a soul-to-soul bond that supports awareness, consciousness, and enlightenment.

Road Closed to Best Life

Road Closed

Road Closed

Road Closed—Is  this sign hanging on your  personal life?  Is your demeanor saying “road closed?” Sometimes we close the road to living our best lives without even knowing it. When this happens it prevents you from living your best life which is  your right.

At times we think in our minds that we have done everything we know to experience this best life, but see no manifestations. You ask,  why is it not happening for you?

The authorities placed this sign to warn you that this particular road is currently not in use due to some danger.  But, it does not matter the reason for it. The fact is, you cannot use this road and you are warned. Note that, the authorities have the power to do this. Similarly, you have the power to display or remove such a sign from your life journey because you are the authority over your best life.

When you display the “Road Closed” sign, you are telling others that they cannot enter your life.  Behind, this sign in the picture is a broken bridge, that  the authorities are protecting you from. In your case, do you understand why you are displaying the sign? It is for some sort of protection from your mind’s eye— consciously or subconsciously. Pause and have a conversation with self to figure out why. Work on removing this sign from your life so that you can invite those who need to be with you on the journey to enter.

Are there “Road Closed” signs on display in your life? Leave me a comment to let me know.

 

Is Your Happiness Committed or Situational

Are you experiencing situational or committed happiness? Pause for a moment and think about it. You may be thinking someone or thing can make you happy. And this is a reasonable assumption based on the culture we live in. But, no one can make you happy, only you. Committed happiness is the one you create  within. On the other hand others can bring you situational happiness. What does this mean? It means that people can do things for you that brings you happiness, but as soon as they stop doing it you are no longer happy.  Indeed, that happiness was temporary and dependent.  This is not the happiness you are seeking to live your best life.

You ask, “how do I really create this happiness?” It is a decision you make every day you wake up and must continuously remind yourself throughout your day. Make the decision that, you are going to be happy no matter what happens. This is called the happiness decision. Once it is created within you, and you act, it spills over into your environment. It is very infectious and becomes visible. People will notice that you are happy.

Once you make this decision, you may find yourself going off track. Going off track for a minute is alright as long as you don’t stay there. Eventually, with practice you will be aware of the “decision killer” or situation and continue with your choice of happiness. Let the positive energy within you rise and remind you that you are choosing to be happy. With practice, your human self will align with the spirit and you will be able to make that commitment to be happy and it is accomplished. It is like training your muscle to run a race. The more you practice, the better you get at it.

Listen to your Soul

Listen to your soul. It is probably one of the most valuable things given to you. But,  you must learn how to work with what it tells you.  You ask, what is your soul. The soul I am referring to is that small voice you hear inside. The one that you refer to as “my mind told me so.” Some refer to it as your conscience. It is always saying something to you and it is never wrong. Part of the best life journey is awareness to your soul. You must make a conscious effort to listen to your soul.

You ask, how do I do this? The soul is always talking to you, so you can be making the right moves for your best life journey. Though the soul is always speaking, you have the option to not listen. You have to be quiet so that you can hear, as too much noise tends to drown it out.  Pay attention as nothing in your life happens in a vacuum. That is, all things are connected in one way or another and the soul will let you know.

You must  be obedient to your soul for this best life journey to work for you.  With practice, you are able to identify what you need to say and do. You find peace in your actions when they come from the soul’s prompting.  When you are in that space where you can hear,  you are in sync and in the ebb and flow of your journey. This is manifested  in an exhilarating journey where you are living in the present.

Your take away—you find peace when you listen to your soul. You are living your best life when you listen to your soul.
