Sitting in the sunshine, I opened the Book of Awakening. Bookmark was still on February 9 & 10. Here’s the entry that caught my attention immediately:
What Life Asks of You
How are you tending to the emerging story of your life? ~ Carol Hegedus and Frances Vaughan
Like so many of us, I seem to be continually challenged not to hide who I am. Over and over, I keep finding myself in situations that require me to be all of who I am in order to make my way through.
Whether breaking a pattern of imbalance with a lifelong friend, or admitting my impatience to listen to my lover, or owning my envy of a colleague, or even confronting the self-centeredness of strangers stealing parking spaces, I find I must be present–even if I say nothing. I find I must not suppress my full nature, or my life doesn’t emerge.
Aside from the feeling of integrity or satisfaction that comes over me when I can fully be myself, I am finding that being who I am–not hiding any of myself–is a necessary threshold that I must meet or my life will not evolve. It is a doorway I must make my way to or nothing happens. My life just stalls.
Tending to our stories means that our lies must open if we are to live in the mystery; our ways of hiding, no matter how subtle, must relax open if we are to be.
*Center yourself and meditate on the emerging story of your life.
*Breathe slowly and consider what your life asks of you so that it can emerge.
*Breathe fully and consider how you can better meet this inner requirement.
I ask you, my friends, how can we doubt that the guidance is always present? There is EVER a Divine synchronicity at work in our lives. Ask–and the answer comes.
