I had the privilege of previewing Wayne Dyer's new book, Excuses Begone!
My favorite sentence in the book was this: "I
can't emphasize enough here that
don't attract what you desire; you attract what you are."
This sentence inspired our
message for this week, a little meditation to bring you out of your wants and
needs and int
out of your head and into this moment. You will find it in your senses, in the
veins of a leaf and the petals of a dew-kissed rose; in the crisp smell of
morning and the aroma of baking cookies; in earth under bare feet and water
pouring over bare skin; in sweet peaches and tangy oranges; in the song of birds
at dawn and the sound of leaves crunching underfoot.
Today, infuse your life with
energy and enthusiasm. Put a little lift into your step. Put a little zest
into your conversation. Take a little risk. Dare to say or do something
different. But most of all, just love your life to pieces. Just love every
moment of it. Embrace it fully, right now, exactly as it is.
Today is a day to be yourself,
to shine out with all that you are. There is nothing extreme or
demanding required. Simply take in each moment as it comes, feel it deep within
your core, and access your own truth.
around you, hear the stones falling and dropping to the earth, then crumbling
into dust. All around you, hear the crashing down of the old as it falls. Do not
be startled by the sound. Do not run and hide. Do not be concerned if dust
clouds your vision for a time.
The action you take today is
like placing one dot on a vast canvas. You cannot see the whole picture of your
life, its meaning and purpose, but yet you are painting it daily with everything
you do. Your higher self, your soul
self, is the painter with the vision. You are the hand, the hand that can
choose the brush, select the color and place the dot of paint just so.
your hand. See how it stretches out to another in greeting and friendship, a
symbol of openness, integrity and welcome. See how it seals a pledge, a promise
of truth and loyalty. See how it soothes in comfort, compassion and love. See
how it excites passion. See how it heals with its touch.
You deserve it all. You
deserve a life of joy and happiness. You deserve a life of abundance. You
deserve freedom from fear and doubt. You deserve warm and loving relationships
and doing work that inspires you. You deserve it all.
