It's all about the journey to an awareness of our gifts. Its all about being open to sharing them. Whatever the venue. When we give, we receive more in return. Sometimes what we end up receiving is new awareness of how we are being perceived, both negatively and positively. Sometimes, there is a clear indication that our gifts are not welcome.....not wanted. Sometimes they are embraced by the receiver with gratitude. It's a bit of a crapshoot because all you can do is give. Your gifts. Be who you are. Say how you feel. Share kindness. Be a good friend. Listen and learn. You have no control really over how the other person will react, respond, receive. You can choose only how you give and what you give out.
The key is trying to find the right venue, because if you're stuck in a place where wings are clipped and free spirits are not welcome nor understood, gifts collect dust in the back corner of the pantry.
Meaning.......... Our lives are a journey of gathering awareness while letting go of our egos. What I may want, what I hunger for is more than likely driven by obsessed ambition. And we all know that when our vision is clouded over by salacious needs, we lose our footing. We lose our way because our Spirit disconnects from our ego driven actions. It doesn't want any part of it.
Luckily our true Spirit...... like God is patient. It knows that most of us humans are slow on the uptake. WE seemed to need several toe stubbing, head slamming, body jolting, heart stabbing life events to finally realize that our lives are in good Hands if we allow our own to be open to give and to receive.
So, how does one marry the two? Service and Meaning? God knows.
Hey God! You wanna shine a little more blue light on me? Just a little more of that meaning-full blue light? I promise I will sit still more often this month.......I have a feeling that's what you would like me to do. To stop, look and listen........ with an open heart and a pair of open hands. It's time to seek out answers to just exactly what venue would I fit in to be able to be of good service....where is this place that will allow me to offer up my gifts? It continues to be a mystery. My destiny is still behind a curtain.
If anyone is looking for me this month? I'll be close to some body of water. Light catches in blue down by the water. And it is blue light that I am seeking..........
