CARPE DIEM!!! Seize the day! Seize the moment. It is the only thing we are promised from the time we entered into this earthly domain. Embrace and revel in the good. Accept and get through the bad as quickly as possible. We are alive to feel both.
We are not mere survivors in this life. We don't have to settle for that. WE ARE CONQUORERS IN CHRIST. That is a promise that has been given to us. I want life-the bad stuff-to wear a t-shirt that says: I AM A HEIDI SURVIVOR
I used to have a real problem with this abundance issue. I thought abundance just meant alot of a good thing. Websters New Collegiate Dictionary gives the definition of ABUNDANCE as: an ample quantity: relative degree of plentifulness. The definition of ABUNDANT: marked by great plenty: occuring in abundance.
When I realized what the definition was, I realized that I have abundance in life in whatever state I choose to stay. Life can be hard-sometimes unbearable. Oh, but the the good-the green-the ever present cycle of life is so much sweeter than the unnatural bad.
I noticed when I was hiking in the mountains a few weeks ago that wildflowers will spring up in the crevices of huge, gray, cold boulders that have been in existance for eons. Beautiful tall, strong stems with brilliant green leaves and lovely brightly colored blossoms reaching toward the sun. Pushing up through the seemingly impossible. Nothing can stop life from existing.
Have you ever noticed that in a sidewalk or city that has been abandoned that over time grass will grow through the concrete? Amazing! LIfe goes on. In time-LIFE GOES ON! Stronger and more beautiful with each moment. But it is a choice. It is my choice of how I handle what ever comes my way. Sometimes people will get in my way. Sometimes my ignorance or lack of knowledge will get in my way. Sometimes I get in my own way by not learning or letting go and letting the Cosmos rule for me. It is still my choice.
Final thought. I was tending to some plants the other day. A Peace Lily to be exact. I had been encouraging it to bloom. I knew it could. I knew it had the potential. One day in my frustration, I gently pulled some leaves apart to take a peak and there it was. A small sliver of a white bloom just beginning to show itself. Ever so faint. I would not have noticed that bloom had I not gone looking for it. I praised it for a job well done. I am beginning to look at life like that. Looking through the seemingly impossible to see the possible.
Seize the day! Seize the impossible and make it the possible. Stand back and be amazed. The potential and ability has always been in you.
CARPE DIEM, NAMASTE AND ABUNDANT BLESSINGS
