“Stop acting so small. You are the universe in ecstatic motion.” Rumi, Persian poet, Islamic scholar and Sufi mystic
Recently I’ve enjoyed being on the California coast and had daily opportunities to marvel at the vastness of the ocean and the many faces it wears. Some serene and others stormy and active. I also felt blessed to immerse myself in the beauty surrounding me. Taking in the sounds, smells, colors, breeze, squirrels, and ever shifting cloud formations as well as the many different kinds of birds. Birds flying in formation while others scurried in the surf and still others dove for food buried deep below the waves. So amazing and beautiful. It’s easy to find my happy place and inner peace while I’m here regardless of how many people are around me. Sedona’s majestic red rocks are another place that I feel this way. Do you have a happy place?
To me, the ocean is a visual reminder of the universe in ecstatic motion. We are as well. Have you ever experienced yourself in this way? How much of acting small is a result of our external conditioning which leads to deeply ingrained beliefs about who we are and what we can do? Hmmmm. Imagine yourself without the boundaries of your physical body while you’re in your quiet moments and focused deep within your heart space. Imagine you are more than a physical body. You are the universe and the universe is you. Imagine feeling so much joy that it can’t be contained. As Golda Meir, Israeli politician and teacher has said, “Trust yourself. Create the kind of self that you will be happy to live with all your life.”
Ask yourself, “When did I start acting small? Have I ever allowed myself to soar above the clouds; to be seen, to dream big and consciously create a life that I will be happy with forever? Am I ready to live a greater and happier version of myself?” Are you ready and willing to change? Think about it. Buddha, Religious teacher and founder of Buddhism has said that, “You yourself, as much as anybody in the entire universe, deserve your love and affection.” You deserve a life that is fulfilling and filled with love. Think of yourself as the universe. All of the answers can be found within you when you quiet your thoughts and focus on your heart space. Focus on the depth of who you are. You are LOVE and this is the connection to God/Goddess/All That Is – Source. This is the eternal you – the you that is more than your thoughts, emotions, and physical body.
Imagine you dancing, skipping, living a life filled with love and joy. Imagine you as the universe in ecstatic motion. You are unstoppable and are worthy of love and affection. Imagine all is possible and the only limitation is your imagination. Trust yourself. You are amazing! I’m sending you lots of love and for those of you who are traditional mothers and less traditional mothers I’m wishing you a happy Mother’s Day!
