Partake…Rejoice!!!

2014-08-09 10.39.16

There are many roads to travel

And there are many choices to be made

There will be times that you feel alone

But you are not

Listen my friend

Hear from your center

The one who will help you speaks from there

If there are times that you feel you can’t hear

ASK

Ask for the answers and they will appear

If there are times that the road seems long and you feel you’ve lost you way

Look around you

There is something to learn

There will never be a road that you take

That won’t offer you some kind of gift

To be present

Here in this lifetime is a wondrous gift

Take advantage of every opportunity

Of every day

The journey is long and you control the path

Lead with love in full faith

And receive the abundance that life so beautifully offers

It is all waiting for you

You must believe that you deserve all the good things that are in store for you

Yes – believe in the abundance of our magnificent existence

Unfurl the burning desire

Partake

Rejoice!

Blessitude

Lorrie

  1. What a georgeous hymne to LIFE Lorrie!!! and to “the abundance of our magnificent existence” As Val said, “Partake! I Love this word for today and every day.”… you know today I saw the physiotherapist for the last time, I will have a x ray control next monday. I’m just amazed by the ability our body has to “re-build” itself, I now have regained 100% of my shoulder mobility, and it’s an amazing feeling: yes, “You must believe that you deserve all the good things that are in store for you”, and I feel very grateful for that. Great post, great poem, GREAT Lorrie πŸ™‚ I β™₯ U

    1. Thank you dear Fre’de’ric! I am so happy that you have 100% mobility back in your shoulder…that is great news. Of course it did not “just happen” this I know…you had to put the work in physically…and you had to believe that you would heal. It is such an important part of healing. If the belief is not there…it will not happen! I thank you for your beautiful words…thank you for always being such a wonderful support to me. I ❀ U 2!!!!

  2. WOW Lorrie, you just wrote my last few days! I love when that happens ((((hugs)))). I wrote something with regard to pain not being caused by loss, but by fear of change – and being a “being” who believes that fear is darkness, as soon as those words came to my mind I realized where “I” had put myself. Life changes, it’s a never ending chain of events that lead to other chains of events – and if you refuse to be afraid of change, the journey is one filled with wonder, excitement and a little bit of “ooow, I wonder what’s coming next.” πŸ™‚ I so love that you wrote this today of all days.

    Much love and light to you my spiritually beautiful friend. β™₯ Kimberly

    1. So, so, so good to hear from you!!! And you just made me cry…but it’s okay….it’s a good cry! I am a little weepy today…go figure πŸ™‚ Yes…I’m sitting here wondering what is going on with me and you write and put it all out there for me to see. I prayed to God that I would find my answers and poof! It comes to me…in a response from you…and it is fear!!! It is always fear…I don’t know why I don’t recognize this by now….if it isn’t love…it is fear!!!!

      Thanks for clearing that up for me…hehe!! I hope your world is full of love and laughter and that your Georgie Girl is feeling better too! Much love and many thanks for being my answer ❀ ❀

      1. Hi my spirit way over there! You’re not alone honey – and it’s not only a you and I club either. Fear’s a biggy to overcome and it comes in so many forms and affects so many different aspects of our life. That’s what I wrote about in my post today – that among other things – that it was loss that was causing my pain, but the fear of change. Like me, at times more than me – we go back and forth, you are very spiritual, empathic and aware – and while those are blessings and gifts, they also come with an emotional roller coaster ride. It’s okay to be on that roller coaster, it’s okay to not be feeling connected to the source all the time (though I’d prefer it be all the time) – there’s a great saying about roller coasters … once you’re on the way down, there’s no where to go, but up. This dimension, this life, is challenging enough emotionally without an ounce of spirituality – add in the spirituality and you have a dual reaction …. on one side, everything is beautiful, peaceful, makes sense, you’re connected, you see and feel what most don’t — on the flip side, you see and feel what most don’t, which can be lonely, or at times, when it’s not as strong as it is during other times (times when you your connection has nearly slipped away), an entire mudslide of emotions can surface – where’d it go? Why am I feeling this way? Hey what just happened? Something’s missing? You’ll be okay honey, of that I’m sure. Just ride out the wave, it eventually lead you to the shore. ❀ (((((big hugs)))))

Thank you for shedding light on my darkness. I may even go look at the ocean and visually ride the wave you are speaking of πŸ™‚

          Sometimes we just need a little reminder…Thank you!! Now I need to go look….because I don’t think I got an email that you posted!!! I will have to figure that out!!

  5. “Take advantage of every opportunity Of every day”
    –Now that’s the key, isn’t it. Lorrie, have you ever watched the movie, “The Peaceful Warrior”? It is phenomenal, to say the least. I think you would truly enjoy it, if you get the chance. One of my favorite quotes from it is: “There are no ordinary moments.”
    Thanks for the encouraging post, sweet lady.

  6. Today, your post is a gift to me. I seem to have frozen in my tracks through some tough and emotional circumstances. Haven’t been able to write or meditate…….but I know it’s here for a reason, and I’m ready to learn. Bless you for being in tune with our pain.

    1. I thought you were a little absent! I am sorry for your troubles…and I understand. ..I also am going through a bit of a rough patch. You are correct to know that whatever we are facing is there for a reason…we will learn something from the struggle.

      I send you so much love…and someone helped me to understand today that it is fear that is trashing my energy. And I know this…as simple as it is it is either love or fear…yes? So I send beautiful love…and I ask you to ask yourself, “am I truly honoring myself…and am I treating myself with love?” This can fundamentally get you back on track!! Best wishes and many blessings! ❀ ❀
