Absolutely MaJones! We can sabotage our self by have a closed mind and heart. But to open up, not afraid of facing what may come our way, allows wonderful things to happen to us. For at the end of every storm is a cloud with a silver lining, and often times a rainbow to brighten our day.

I have found that when I face adversity with a smile in my heart, and have hope and believe that everything will turn out alright, it does. I am no longer afraid of the journey or the ending. I know that whatever I face, it allows me to grow in knowledge. And no matters what happens, it continues to shape and mold me into the human being that I am, and am becoming.

Life is wonderful; no matter our outward circumstances. Everything has a season and a purpose in our life. But it takes lifting our eyes far above the situation to see the truth of what we are being taught.

We know we are in the right place when we can soar with the eagles while we find our self facing a storm. For only then do we rise above the problem in the air streams, never having to flutter our wings, but be at peace waiting out the storm. For we know when it is over, we can return to our nest that was built on a solid foundation.

Peace and Love

Sometimes a door open and for a lot of us we just can't see. This is why I try to keep an open mind and heart.

Carol Jean, I'm smiling at "I think the Universe is trying to send me a massage." I'm going to keep that in my mind today. I don't even realize 'til the end of the day how tensed I am against reality. Your saying may help me to relax into Life. emoticon

I think the universe is trying to send me a massage. An online 21 day mantra meditation that I am doing featured the title today of the Inner Guru. While I was experiencing the mantra and the music, I felt as if "someone" (me) in my heart was cracking open a door that has been long closed....

I OPEN NEW DOORS TO LIFE

I rejoice in what I have and I know that fresh new experiences are always ahead.

I greet the new with open arms.

I trust life to be wonderful.
