“If you are alive and reading this quote then know most assuredly that you are in the best of days – TODAY!
Today is YOUR day
Live it well, Live it out loud! Give all you’ve got to it, give your best, and it might surprise you to see the good that Life throws back at you”
Lady Dawnecia Palmer, 2019
March represents a season of fresh hope
It seems like only yesterday we all said hello to the Month of January as the start of a new year, but already so many have encountered situations and circumstances that have them feeling like, “If only I could start all over again.” Now, If that is you, here is the good news “YOU CAN”. You can simply choose to start all over again. How? you may ask. Well, one way would be to use the idea that like March which represents new hope for the fresh blooms springing forth from the cold, rough, dark, sleepy days. Even so, you will you allow yourself to feel into the idea of vitality budding from within, and hold that awareness until the wars subside; your new year has begun again, and soon your days will become lighter, and brighter.
Jesus the Christ, reportedly said, “I have come that you might have life and that you may have it more abundantly.” I would like to ask you to read the verse again, but perhaps a little slower this time around. And as you read I am asking you to please take notice if you find the mention of money or things. Of course, you will find that he did not and that there is not. There is not the slightest hint of money there. Yet, so many preachers and teachers, and people peddling their wares over the years have all used this verse to imply that the Master Teacher was talking about money. But, he was not.
You and I know that Life carries no purse. Yet, it is the stuff by which everything is made, being uncontainable, lucid, unembellished, and of unmeasurable value. It alone remains constant in an ever-changing, depreciating, world of form.
Money has the value-worth humanity ascribes it. It has been said that money saves time, but many people spend their precious time trying to conserve it. And others are frustrated because the money they accumulated over time, is constantly being spent. We find that the value of money fluctuates gets revised and changed with time. It is this exchangeable commodity of usefulness between peoples, and a means of creating and maintaining a balance in society.
Money has become a vehicle of exchange, a worldwide transportation for acquiring goods, service, and personal worth. And in some cases, money is the personal atlas by which a man may ignorantly map out for himself a world, organized around the amount of money he possesses. Eventually, he spends it all, but mostly he may leave it all.
Abundant life is limitless, it is the birthright of each. Abundant life is a state. Our conscious appreciation and gratitude for life in each breath is the opportunity life uses to realize abundance within, providing amazing experiences and expressions of life.
November, December, Winter, days are shorter, evenings darker, and depending on where you live, the weather is considerably colder too. Yet it is during this season that we most celebrate the rich luminosity of lights. From the oil lamps and candlelights of Diwali, fireworks on Bonfire night, the flickering glow of small tea lights hidden inside scary-faced pumpkins, larger crackling fires of the Winter Solstice, the nine-lights lampstands of Hanukkah, or the twinkling bulbs of Christmas, to the seven candles lit each day for the Sabba of Kwanzaa.
And so, for any going through a restless dark night of the soul this winter, these festivals of lights are invitations to share in the warmth and glow of The Light and to brighten the path on the journey of Life.
At this juncture, let us call to mind that great Master Teacher who said, “I am the Light of the world.” It is this light that lights everyone at birth. And furthermore, we are told that we are the lights of a city set on a hill. We came here loaded with light. Therefore, comprehend your shine. And as we own our light, we shine a path for others to see and so find their way through the darkness.

The call of life can be heard in each breath we take
But what really matters is how well we participate in its call.
Are we even aware of its coming and goings?
or are we simply wasting precious life moments in endless, mindless chatter and cares of this world?
But, if we would hush for a moment, and, become very still, and listen
Listen, without adding a story, we’d hear Life’s sweet call.

May is indeed a time of refreshing as it is a time of hope.
As we advance toward the half-year mark we stand on this one step that stands, as it were, between what has been, and what is possible.
So here we get to engage and participate the greatest opportunity of our lifetime, the opportunity to choose.
What will your choices be? Here you are given the chance to step in and step up, to the helm of your destiny: your unfolding.
Who and what am I? This fundamental question from which answers might well determine the rest of the year, the rest of your life.
At the core, you are the stuff from which you were beautifully formed. Designed to prosper in health and strength, beauty and love. All you could ever wish for and more that these are already within you. This, my friend, is the truth of your beingness.
And so, realising the truth about your essence will inform your choices going forward.
The way ahead is clear, inviting you to enter thereon, in the knowing that all is well and better still that all shall be well.
May each of us for the all of us, echo the soul’s sweet refrain ‘and so it is!’
And so it is.
