Where I live in the province of B.C. it has been in a state of emergency due to wildfires for 3 weeks now. 123 wildfires currently burning, 868 wildfires since April 1, 2017, and 498,098 hectares burned. Our skies are red and air quality is off the charts. I recently retired from my ranch in the Cariboo district which has been hit the worst. So many homes and ranches destroyed and I don’t want to know the number of animal fatalities.
Now I see in the bigger picture, that Divine Love has protected me and once again put me in the right place at the right time. All I can do is pray for the safety of all my friends and acquaintances living the terrifying experience of these wildfires. I ask that we all pray for Divine intervention, let it rain, let rain, let it rain.
The all powerful law of attraction where like attracts like is really quite simple. To receive LOVE you have to give LOVE. This universal truth is all around you. Challenge yourself today to take an action of LOVE and then witness what comes back to you. It may take time but if you stay aware you will receive LOVE in some form or other.
Do you feel like sometimes you get locked into your head and think too much? I have been trying to consciously focus on the NOW. That means I don’t think about the past or the future and I concentrate my thoughts on the moment. When I do this iT seems that the day flows so much easier. After so many losses in my life the one thing I learned from the wonderful souls that have come across my path is to LIVE LIFE TO THE FULLEST in the present.
This image absolutely touched my heart and moved me to tears. I have been watching the news about the raging wildfires in my old neighborhood in the Cariboo of central B.C. Canada. All my friends have had to be evacuated. The whole province is under disaster alert. What moved me the most was witnessing what I call the silent angels that come to the aid of those in need from far and wide. It proves there is a deep compassion living in the hearts of all humanity.
“Dear Monkey Mind, just get lost!” When the wisdom of the heart replaces the chatter of the mind, then LOVE flows. Remember you are LOVE and LIGHT and give yourself a hug.
“Mindful self-compassion is about learning how to be awake. Being awake is about recognizing that you are not your inner volatile stream of thoughts, emotions and sensations. Like clouds passing through the sky, these things come and go. But they are not you.” HOW TO PRACTICE MINDFUL SELF-COMPASSION
I have been blessed with good friends all my life. Some are new acquaintances and others are life long. Showing the soft side of my underbelly, being vulnerable, always deepens true friendship. It takes time to reach out to friends that have gone onto different paths but they always cross again in time. Friends enrich you life with a special LOVE.
Is self LOVE inherent or environmental? Nature or nurture? From my observations of myself and others I was born happy but I was raised by a very unhappy mother. She had zero self-esteem nor any self Love. No one had taught her to value herself and she could not pass those lessons onto me so I had learn on my own. One significant lesson that really started the self love journey was that I WAS RESPONSIBLE FOR MY OWN HAPPINESS. As my life journey has spanned 6 decades I have also learned that my happiness did not come from external things or expectations of others, it came from within.
