They release us from the past.  Capture us in the present.  Potentially imprisoning us of future.
Ultimately giving us the choice to follow a different pathway.  To risk, soar, fly.

It was a day like most of the days in those days.  But of late, they had been consumed with constant preparation, planning, to ensure nothing could get in the way of excellence.  Consumed with perfection, I had been pushing to the limits…but in the bad way.
Someone saw this. There on the back roads between the idea of what was supposed to make me happy and who I thought I was on my way to be, I heard a voice.  Through a conduit guided from the highest force, a voice.
All it took was a song.
 Someone singing words of encouragement, truth, and love.
Overwhelmed and accepting the truth took it’s toll.  But what significant moments don’t?
Pure moments can occur.  That was one of them and I’ll never, ever forget it.  It allowed me to SEE the possibilities in myself as someone else did.  There in that confined place and space, I SAW what unconditional confidence was.  Someone believed in me.  And it made me want to believe to.
Help comes in all forms.
Are you open enough to accept it when it crosses your path?
Because, somewhere there’s your angel.

 Somewhere there’s a river, looking for a stream
Somewhere there’s a dreamer, looking for a dream
Somewhere there’s a drifter, trying to find its way
Somewhere someone’s waiting to hear somebody say

I believe in you, and I can’t even count the ways that
I believe in you, and I want to do is help you to believe in you

Somewhere someone’s reaching trying to grab that ring
Somewhere there’s a silent voice lerning how to sing
Some of us can’t move ahead we’re paralized with fear
And everybody’s waiting, to hear somebody say

I believe in you, and I can’t even count the ways that
I believe in you, and I want to do is help you to believe in you

I will hold you up
I will help you stand I will comfort you when you need a friend
I will be the voice that’s calling I (hold till fade)

I believe in you and I can’t even count the ways that
I believe in you and there are just so many ways that
I believe in you and all I want to do is help you to believe in you

12.  leap of faith, an act or instance of accepting or trusting in something that cannot readily be seen or proved but in your heart is KNOWN…
A simple and profound realization which so many of us consider and too few KNOW to be ours?  I SEE it to be within grasp.  Or maybe I was always holding it…only my grip had loosened on my understanding of it’s concept.  Instead of dwelling on the don’t haves, couldn’t do, will never be, I am ready to embrace myself with unabashed acceptance of who I have become.
 At some point, it comes down to a choice, (which we actually all have), to have trust in the process of our lives.  To trust that when things don’t go our way, life has a plan…even if the one we set forth on, falls through and completely apart. My reaction when things fell apart was the key.  So what does it mean?  Well, basically the difference between being frozen in fear, trapped in a safe, chance-less existence, OR freeing yourself forever, as you stretch to climb to new heights.
New heights of comprehension, humility, gratitude, desire, and will.  Heights which initially could not been foreSEEn. They would have been lost and unknown forever, had it not been for a brave leap of faith to a planet waiting to amaze.  So, what do you say we jump and let’s go be happy?

Excuse Me, You’re In My Light

With five planets in Retrograde this month, And tonight a full moon but the sky’s been hazy.  No wonder I am having some fogginess.  When you need clarity the most, it’s then that it’s often the hardest to find.  Especially under the cloak of doubt clouds slowly covering our source of light.  Ever noticed when you need to SEE the most, things go dark?
Now that’s timing.  Brilliant!
This doubt, which I believe has been caused by radical change, is creating fear.  Is that a trifecta or what?
But the whole reason I initiated this level of change, is because I was actually fearless.  So now that these feelings have managed to seep in, I remind myself of how long I had muddled about in an attempt to avoid the light.  Also known as The Aimless Ages.
I am not returning there.
First, one needs to recognize why the fear exists.
WHY?!  This is where the LUNARtic moment comes in.  Not going to lie, sometimes, it would make life a whole lot easier if someone just told me why vs. having to figure it out on my own.  And in this moment, while in the throws of full on frustration mode, the lightbulb went off.
Fear is created by one’s own inability to face the reality of a situation.  Even when initially faced, fear can remain.  Then, just as the clouds come in, they slowly pass by, bringing in recognition of all you were willing to risk and finally allow “to thine own self be true.”
Within this moment of internal brightness, you can stand up to fear and say, “Excuse me, you’re in my light.”

There is nothing like that feeling after I’ve talked to my mom.  I would never have imagined that something, seemingly so simple would have such power and significance.  Especially when we didn’t have those type of talks all the time.
She’s a classic beauty.  She was this way from the beginning.  My grandfather talked about this all the time.  As proud parents do.
She has the sweetest voice and when she says “I love you to beta”, the vibration sent through my heart is indescribable. (“Beta” in Gujarati dialect:  someone younger, who is your child or you view in the same capacity.)
She is stronger than any substance, matter, and person I’ve ever known. Growing, fighting, demanding to be SEEn (as herself).  Solid to the core.  Through all the obstacles, disappointments and heartache she experienced, she never wavered in her resolve to survive.  In a world a woman didn’t always have a voice, she created hers.  Evolving to a higher sense of purpose.
I realize more than ever, what type of sacrifices she made for me and my sisters.  To ensure her children had more, better opportunities to be themselves and follow their dreams.  The type of love which can only come from a mother’s limitless dedication for her child.  Helping her child to SEE they can survive anything…even the reality of never being able to be a mom.  Making sure I survived one of my life’s most perplexing puzzles.
Here’s to my mom, who helped me realize that there is ALWAYS more of the story to be told and my next chapter awaits.
Thank you mom.

And You’re Still Here

After you have been through about a zillion ordinary days and another (what feels like) a billion heartbroken ones, when you see that you are at the start of the exception, you stop and take notice.  I can’t believe how long it’s taken for me to figure out this word problem.
I thought I gave away my heart on my dreams.  And during this time, I forgot about you.   Giving your heart to me, allowing mine to keep beating.  I never properly thanked you.
Here’s the Thank You card.
Dear You,
Do you remember when we met?  It was magic.  To me it was magic.  It had been a while after I had lost faith in love…again.  As much as we fought it (and we did fight it for a while), we couldn’t be kept from each other.  Just thinking about it puts a peaceful smile on my face.  From the beginning we took a leap of faith in each other and we never looked back.  We found a friend in one another, like no other.  And that was it.  Plus you have the softest lips.  Somewhere we stopped thinking about the beginning, to work on the future.  And in the process, ignored the present.  And now here we are, in the present, with a beginning which seems prehistoric, and a future we haven’t been sure we wanted to face.
But we can still make each other laugh and I still feel the magic.  As you did back then, when my heart needed resuscitating, you have been there for me.  Giving me your heart.  Without me having to ask, EVER.  You always give to me.  It’s important that you know I know this.
This is entry #10.  It began with the word clarity and already I am feeling that I have gained some.     As you have always, you see everything.  And you’re still here.

Better Sit Up And Take A Listen

in·tu·i·tion
noun
1.  direct perception of truth, fact, etc., independent of any reasoning process
2.  ~Philosophy
a.  an immediate cognition of an object not inferred or determined by a previous cognition of the same object
b.  any object or truth so discerned
c.  pure, untaught, noninferential knowledge
3.  a fact, truth the quality or ability of having such direct perception or keen, quick insight
Trusting is hard because of two reasons:
a.  You can be wrong
b.  You can get hurt
I have experienced both.  This, for a long time, resulted in my trying to avoid risk, taking chances, and ignoring the gnawing tug from within.  And as I’m learning with each passing day, the attempt to avoid being wrong and getting hurt, only caused more of both.
Oh yah, all that diving and dodging for what?
Here I am at another crossroad and I think I could be right about this next step.  But freaking out as I decide whether or not to cross the line.  Forever we’re ingrained and induced with fear to stay within the lines.  So much so that we SEE anything outside them as a misstep.
And what if I am wrong?  What happens then?  Do I evaporate into dust, like a vampire exposed to light?  Nope.  Does everyone who supports and loves me suddenly walk away?  Nope.  Does the world end?  Nope.  Then why such fright involved in taking the next step?
Not everything is going to result in perfection.
I will be ALL right even when things go wrong.
Best to have no regrets on the “dids” than a gut load of them on the “did not’s”.
Maybe I wasn’t always where I wanted to be, but I can now SEE I am exactly where I need to be.  Must be my intuition talking again.  Better sit up and take a listen.
