The universe blessed me yesterday with a gift I had long forgotten. I made a decision, a promise if you will many years ago to do good. Not that I was so bad before but, there was a lot missing in my life. Integrity. Honor. Respect. I promised myself that I would gain these things back AND I promised to serve in a bigger way. I had spent many years too focused on me; and not enough on how can I help YOU. You, weren't even in the equation. You, were simply a means to an end and how I would get to the next place. I realized that was not working in my life and it was time for a change. You, showed up and showed me a glimpse of what life, what that feeling, what having it all could really mean and you made me hungry in a way I'd never imagined. I promised you, myself that I would do good. I would do more. I would leave my hands empty to receive and empty to offer help when needed.
Yesterday, the Universe blessed me with a gift. It brought 20 people into my life for a moment - just a moment of silence. The Universe blessed me with a beautiful room to provide the space to those that needed it. The Universe blessed me with friends and family that support this crazy dream of mine. The Universe continues to bless me by being my pillow, my shield, my rock and my motivator. Yesterday the Universe blessed and showed me that by helping myself I help others. By being still, I allow others to be. By taking the time (which is so precious, yet so continuous), I can actually create more.
The Universe, God, Spirit, Allah, The Holy Almighty ~ gave me a gift; and that gift is You.
