Why Not Say Yes?

Say yes to the many possibilities

In your life.

Say yes to accepting joy

In your life.

Say yes to believing

In yourself.

Dear One, can you say yes to all that life sends your way? Can you see the gift in all that crosses your path? Can you say yes to the truth that you are capable, worthy and ready to take the next step forward?

There are two components to your life, the physical and the spiritual. The spiritual component is that which guides you forward into the next lesson, the next experience. The physical is what reacts to the experience. It can accept it with love or approach it with fear and disdain.

You can experience and focus on the discomfort of the situation. Or you can approach it with acceptance that it is impermanent and also an opportunity to grow. You can bemoan the fact that this experience is not pleasant. Or you can see it as another step forward on your path, a gift to all concerned. The choice is yours.

Reacting is a physical behavior. It is driven by human emotion and often is done without forethought. Responding is the result of pausing and reflecting upon what has just occurred. In responding you are bringing in the spiritual component of your life. What just happened? Why, and how best do I respond to this?

Any discomfort you feel is temporary. And in tangent with that concept, any joy you feel may also be temporary. It all depends on how you see the current situation of your life. If it causes you despair, can you reflect upon it, seek help if needed, and honestly ask yourself what opportunities for change are present. If your current life situation brings you joy, then offer gratitude for the lightness of being which surrounds you.

Remember that this physical life is one of duality. Both highs and lows will be experienced for both light and dark inhabit this plane of existence. This is why it is such a wondrous learning ground for souls who incarnated in order to experience self-discovery. No learning results from a perfect, carefree existence. The lesson is in how you react or respond to the ups and downs of your life.

It may bring you comfort to understand the impermanence of all things on this physical plane. And it may help you to understand that the choice is always yours on what comes next. For there is opportunity for change with every breath that you take.

There are as many paths for you to take as branches on a tree. Each one spreading from the core, the trunk. And each one reaching towards the light. You are like that tree, solid in your core, but able to sway in the currents of life as you reach outward and upward. If the branch you are currently traveling breaks off, then another one resumes the journey forward.

Dear One, there are always opportunities presented to you. And each opportunity provides a different part of the lesson you came here to learn. Embrace your life and know that you have the strength, the help to move forward in love.

If you need to pause and reflect, do so. Your strength and power will once again surge through your veins. Know that there is the possibility of joy underneath every leaf on your journey. And remember that you are firmly attached to the strength of the Mother, the power of the All. Nothing can change that.

You are One with All.

You have the opportunity to change.

Each moment of your life

Provides the opportunity for growth.

And when the new blossoms appear

You will shine with more light

Than ever before.

You are a magnificent being.

Dear One With All of Thee.
