pathway“Every positive change–every jump to a higher level of energy and awareness–involves a rite of passage. Each time to ascend to a higher rung on the ladder of personal evolution, we must go through a period of discomfort, of initiation. I have never found an exception.”

~ Dan Millman, author of Way of the Peaceful Warrior ~

Iyanla Vanzant on the Power of Love

“In love, there is a total acceptance of self, and a willingness to give of self without an expectation of receiving anything in return. When you love, you are not afraid to share the truth of who you are, and you accept the truth of others without judgment.”

~Iyanla Vanzant~

The Secret to Surviving Life’s Low Points by Martha Beck

When things fall apart, your urge is to do something—anything—to put them back together. But what if you can’t do that right now? Martha Beck on the hidden blessings of life’s little low points.

“Ruined plans and unfulfilled expectations remind us that we have little control over most situations, and that our very lives are—I’m sorry, but it’s true—temporary. This scares us so much we resist every downturn, from a demotion to a breakup, as if it were death itself. We clutch at straws, passionately embrace denial, or pretend things won’t go wrong (even when they already have).

These options—trust me, I’ve tried them all—don’t work.

If you’re going into a valley, do what you did as a small kid on the big shiny playground slide: Let go and ride it down. Accept that what’s happening is happening. Then immediately implement step two:

GATHER your personal power, tap into Spirit’s strength and overcome your fears!

SHARE: Prosper By The Spirit — “We are rare, not perfect.” from Mark Nepo

SHARE … By The Spirit™

September 30, 2012

by Tonya M. Evans, SHINE … By The Spirit™

In today’s SHARE, the Mark Nepo quote reminds us that PROSPERING does not require perfection; but surrender to the perfection of our imperfection.

We PROSPER when we embrace the beauty of who we are today rather than the idea or ideal of who we think we should be tomorrow (a day that may never come). “Be here now” and PROSPER where you are planted. Tomorrow will take care of itself.

“With our hands full of groceries, our heads full of things to do, our hearts full of memories, and our dreams full of plans, we tend to think if we could only get away or finish crossing off the things on that list, if we could only undo what has been done or do what needs to be done, we might then live more completely, more perfectly. But we are human beings, flawed colorful beings that eat plans and memories for food.

“We are in moments pure and ageless as light, and with the very next breath, we drop things or bruise the treasures of a lifetime. We need to soothe ourselves, not blame ourselves. We are rare, not perfect, and seem destined to know all there is briefly, only to pound it into bread.”

Mark Nepo, The Book of Awakening (9/30 entry)

SHARE: Prosper By The Spirit — Searching for the seed of good in everything

SHARE … By The Spirit™

“Search for the seed of good in every adversity. Master that principle and you will own a precious shield that will guard you well through all the darkest valleys you must traverse.

Stars may be seen from the bottom of a deep well, when they cannot be discerned from the mountaintop. So will you learn things in adversity that you would never have discovered without trouble.

There is always a seed of good. Find it and prosper.”
