SERENITY

Yesterday is gone.  Tomorrow does not exist yet.  There is only today . . . there is only the now.  These are the facts that bring clarity into my life.  A clarity that grows and expands from learning from the past, planning for the future, but still living and building today.  That stillness fills me when I know I have this moment.  When I know I have life in this breath.  It gives me great powers to fulfill my needs and accomplish my aspirations.  It frees me to be obedient to my true-feelings, to be militant and organized in my thoughts, and to be in harmony with my actions.  It simply means I am at peace in all waters and I show the way.  That is what living this moment is all about.  That is what it feels like to flow in the middle of the river.  It is ecstasy for the whole of life.

I live in two worlds at once, knowing that is part of knowing my big picture.  It is also knowing that I know that I know everything is going to be all right, in spite of the challenges and stepping stones in life.  It is in trying to re-live the past or trying to live in the future that I create or allow agitation in my water.  It is not my business to relive the past.  It is not my business to live in the future.  It is my business to do the very best I know how and Master My Energy.  When I am consistent in minding my business there is a calm that fills me and everything I am a part of.  It allows me to accomplish more with less effort.  It allows me to move fast by staying smooth first.

I have come to this higher school of learning to continue in my spiritual growth and expansion.  These are my “basics” and the foundation of why am here.  Part of the basics also is recognizing I have needs and wants.  My needs are basically spiritual and my physical survival.  Everything else is a want, but it’s okay to like my wants!  Part of why I am here is to experience the achievement of them.  Where I get into trouble is when I allow my needs and wants to get confused. I can invite more troubles and confusion by accepting other people’s fears about their needs and wants.  I have all the energy and backing of the Universe to do what I come to do, but there are limits to my energy when I try to learn what others come to experience.  Accepting other people’s fears is trying to live someone else’s destiny; it is perfect for them but it will not be for me.

To be still, peaceful and quiet inside does not mean doing nothing.  As a matter of fact, as a Wayshower, I am here to be involved in my life 100%!  There are some things that I am a part of over which I have little control.  How I work with them however is completely up to me.  It is truly about decision.  When I decide to be consistent with the good, kind, loving, sharing part of me I will have greater happiness, success and abundance.  It is up to me to be calm, cool and collected in my actions when there is combative energy around me. It is up to me to be at peace when people are experiencing turmoil around me.  It is up to me to be sure of my direction when there is uncertainty floating around me.  The clearer I am about my decision to be me, the easer it becomes to fulfill my purpose.  The easer it is to just be.

There is a strong sailing ship moving through the sea.  It travels from port to port being of service.  Some of the journeys are longer than others but the voyage is always clear.  Some of the waters are stormy but always passable.  This ship stays true because the captain trusts its compass, his team and the stars.  This ship was designed for its ventures and will never be lost.  It is in its ventures and service that the name “Serenity” becomes known.  I AM the captain of that ship.
