Meditation

“Think not that humility is weakness; it shall supply the marrow of strength to thy bones. Stoop and conquer; bow thyself and become invincible.”

— Charles Spurgeon

What supplies our energy?  What feeds us? How might we tap into the infinite reservoirs of The Divine Cosmic Energy?

At the opposite end of this spectrum, down here on Earth, what or who drains us?  What activities bore us to tears?  What thoughts, events, or people distract us from our true callings?

If we can surmise the answers to any of these questions, what then are the natural remedies that can supply and restore us?

The humility and courage to ask these initial questions may mean we are waking up, becoming more aware of whom we are, and can now focus in on the spiral flow of our own unfolding.

Two powerful activators of our fearless evolutions are self-love and self-knowledge, which challenge us to fully accept ourselves, and allow the divine purification process to begin.  When we are clear, no longer blocked by own ignorance, we will learn to trust what we see, hear, feel, and intuit, and not second-guess what we know.

Life is an awesome supply of treasures, physical and metaphysical gems that give us ample opportunities to magnify our worldly gifts.
