Life Gave Me Lemons and Guess What I Did?

Life gave me lemons! I pondered what it meant for my life. Why, Oh Why, I asked. With no time to loose, I  rolled up my sleeves  and reminded myself, I was on my  Alphabet Circle Journey™ and living my best life. Life had presented lemons, now what happens? You see, lemons can be a good thing or a bad thing, depending on your perspective.  I chose not to see lemon as the old car that was bought and the engine would not start. No way! My engine had to start. Life gave me lemons, but I was going to do something positive with it.

My Lemons Made Tea

I made hot lemon teaWith a winning mindset, I decided to make lemon tea, as I am very fond of hot teas. You see, raised in a system conquered by the English, hot tea became a part of who I am.  Into a teapot of boiling water, I squeezed my lemons after rolling them on the table with the palm of my hands, so as to make sure all the juice would be extracted. Tea represents for me, something beautiful and good. It represents, good morning! The beauty of new dawn  with great anticipation of the sun coming soon upon the horizon. Life gave me lemons and now I have tea.

Why I Made Lemonade with my Lemons

As the days rolled on, I grew thirsty. I needed to get a cold drink to quench such a thirst. Well, I had lemons and lots of them. I resorted to what I know very well to do. I made a nice tart drink of Lemonade. Not just a glass but a jug of it. Because I had so many lemons that this life had thrown at me, I could afford to splurge on the lemonade, and I made the best of it. I made sweetened and unsweetened so as to submit to my taste buds. So, here I was having hot and or cold lemonade depending on which was my preference at the time of drinking. I learned to love this lemonade because I knew it was my answer to my situation. My lemons became lemonade and I loved it. I change what could have been a bad situation with action. What have you done with your lemons?

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.
