The new sun rises behind the stunning multi-colored Lorikeet; A child overwhelmed by sorrow and pain is transformed spirit and body into something new and magnificent.
In the Dreamtime, perhaps. Today, we need to rely on ourselves to make the transformation we desire. Everyone is beautiful when we stop comparing them to others, all of us sometimes suffer from great sorrow. To open our hearts, to lift our eyes we first must accept ourselves as we are. Then we can truly make a choice in what we would be transformed into. If we choose inner transformation and growth, everything else will follow.
The following is my personal affirmation written in 1999. I read it daily, I try to live by it's guidelines, and it has transformed my life.
Blessed Be The Day, For Me And Mine
When I curse or disempower another person
I absent myself from reverence.
I must shift and raise the frequency of my light,
For I receive from the world what I give to the world.
The temptations that challenge will always be with me;
Each temptation is not a defeat,
A signal I'm weak...
But an opportunity to prove myself stronger each time.
Take the time to appreciate that strength
And the Spirit from which it comes.
