Connection

It is time to learn and practice presence. It is by presence that awareness may happen. And when you are present to this moment and aware of what is being presented to you in this moment, you can truly live and make the absolute most of this life experience.

It is imperative to know how to receive gifts when they are presented to you. This way, you can take what you need from every experience and situation that happens and use that information to evolve, grow, and change as you need and want to.

In order to receive, you must be aware. Awareness is key. If you are not aware, if you are not cognizant of all that is present around you, you can not live. You can not make informed decisions and choices. You can not create your life for yourself.

Choice is everything. It is by making a choice that your life takes shape. Your choices form the person that you are and become, every moment of every day.

You see, it is all connected. One thing stems form another and creates the present life experience, which turns into years and your overall life story. But it all begins with Love. Everything started with love and that is where it all ends. Find your love. Find and cultivate your self love, and from there your life will take place. Life is created by connection. Life is connection. Your connection to yourself and all that surrounds you is all that you have. Nourish that connection. Take the best care of it as you can. Love and connection are our life lines. – AJ

We’ve grown weary.

Some cold.

Others cynical.

But we must not falter. Not now. Not here.

We’re moving. We’re getting there.

The road is long and filled with much to be experienced and learned from, but all is well.

We have to keep going, keep moving, keep trying, keep living.

This is the way of life.

Humanity has always had issues and always will. This is the way of things and there’s nothing wrong with that.

We must simply endure, and find our courage.

We are making it through. – AJ

Gratitude – Enjoy :

Be grateful for where you are, who you are, what you have and enjoy what you can where you are how you can.

Gratitude is the most important part other than taking action. Gratitude is what guides our blessings to us, what keeps us going, keeps us honest, keeps us grounded, and brings good energy and vibes to us. Always be grateful.

Know Who You Are

This fear, This pain, This cage, This prison, This is not you.

This single, one tracked limited mind, is not you.

This desperation and these feelings of separation are not who you are.

You are more, so much more.

We are fertile land, filled with seeds, full of potential, and it is up to each of us to actualize that potential. We must work our lands and grow them.

You are a beautiful and unique being, you have a chance to be great, to do great things, to go great places.

You are a special and wonderful gift who’s touch is ever reaching, whether you notice it or not.

You are a light that can be radiated like all the stars in the sky; because you are the stars in the sky.

Know this. Know who you are. Know what lives inside of you. Know all the incredible things you are capable of. Become them, enjoy them, love them.

We Are The Remedy

“Where there is poison there is a remedy” – Mage (King Arthur: Legend of the Sword film)

I’ve used his quote before but it sits especially with me right now in this time because it is so true and absolutely vital that we each take this to heart. We are in a very important and incredible time in history and humanity.

The tide has turned and it is the dawn of a new era. A very different world than we’ve known in a long time, if not ever. And this quote speaks to this truth. There has been a long reign of poisoning that has gone on in the world, very long and very sickening. But that time is ending. We are entering into a new space and moment. A space and moment in which Love rules. It is a time of healing, a time of rediscovering, an unbecoming. This is the era of Returning.

There was a time in history where humanity was in tune. We were in tune with ourselves, we were in tune with nature, we were in tune with life. We celebrated living and savored he experience. We did not tie ourselves down with unnecessary worries, things, and work. We did what was vital to our well being, nothing more. We coexisted with our surroundings and made due with what we could make and create.

I love learning about that time in history. It was so pure and rich and vibrant with culture, and compassion, and appreciation for all that is light and good and a profound understanding of what is wrong and how to handle it. We are now returning to that. More people, now than ever, are accepting themselves, their truest, deepest, rawest, purest, most beautiful and natural self. People are more accepting of others and unbothered by the things that make us each unique. We are beginning to celebrate ourselves and one another again. We are beginning to take up for and support one another like never before.

It is truly a beautiful time to be alive. But as history goes, chaos precedes change, good and positive change. But do not be weary and do not fret. As long as each of us does our best and is lives in and through love, all will be well. Let not chaos control your heart, let love rule. Let Love be your guide.

Advice To Live By

“Your reward is proportional to your perspiration. Always be patient, be smart, be ready!”

– American Ballet Theatre, Pro tip

If you want results, you have to do the work. Find the heart to pursue your passions and dreams and do the perseverance to push through, learn from, and use to your advantage the challenges that come your way.

The Heart

“Here is my secret,

A very simple secret.

It is only with the heart that one can see rightly,

What is essential is invisible to the eye.”

– The Little Prince written by Antoine de Saint-Exupéry

The heart is so much more than a muscle. It is the tool of which we use to behold all that truly matters in this life.

It is with the heart that we see what can not be superficially seen.

It is with the heart that we feel what can not be physically touched.

It is with the heart that we can hear what is not able to be spoken when words fail.

It is with the heart that we know what can not be known through our very impressionable and ever-changing mind.

To get to the heart of a thing is to get to the truth. And that is what counts. More than that, it is what we DO with the truth that matters MOST.

May we make the way of the heart a way of life so that we can truly, deeply, freely live, love, and prosper.
