I Am Here To Surrender . . .
"America will never be destroyed from the outside. If we falter and lose our freedoms, it will be because we destroyed ourselves."
I make stuff up...This is fiction!
How have you been the last few days? I have been involved in an adventure in the Past and Future. One of the things I do consistently is evaluate whether I am good enough or not. When I get stuck in either the past or the future, I am no longer present and for no reason I can guess, I make the past and the future uncomfortable in my mind. Well, for me, it takes being in the present to be my best. When I am my best my life unfolds in Divine Order. I know I don't have to tell you what it feels like when you are riding the horse in the direction it is going.
Because I have already disclosed to you that this is fiction, remember I am going to make this up:
Once Upon A Time...
There was a really nice young lady who found that thinking outside the box was more fun than thinking inside the box, so she started exploring the world of enlightenment. This lead her to be pretty open about her desire to feel the highest connection with the universe that she could. So when she proclaimed herself President of the World, a friend suggested that she not stop there because it was limiting and recommended she be Empress of the Universe instead, she thanked him and set about on this path.
Well soon, a mysterious princess came into her life and as an acknowledgement of her sense of humor introduced the lady as The Empress of the Universe. Then for the lady's birthday she gave her a beautiful card that said:
"How fiercely the fiery petals of your rapture shelter the tender lily of your heart. For deep within its ivory chamber do you kneel in silent devotion to Me. But now, on the hallowed anniversary of your birth, may the sheltering flames fall away releasing for all upon this earth to savor the fragrance of beauty and grace that you are, for you, Dear Empress, are my gift to the world and my gift to you this day is the remembrance of your truth, as a Goddess awakening to the joy of your love and surrender to Me." The lady felt it was God asking her to surrender so she set a path forward to do this.
Most days when the world was allright and no one was threatening us all, the Empress was making her utmost effort to say the best thing she could think of to say in each moment to both herself and anyone around her. She once told me that she would like it if everyone would make the effort to do their best, but she said "Whether they do it or not, I don't mind, because it takes a lot of effort to do that all the time."
She later asked me if I would make more of an effort to do the best and be the best I could be so that others might be inspired to their greatness. I said, " I could do that and each of us could use a boost every once in a while." So here I am making this effort to have a positive influence where I can.
Thank you to anyone who reads this and takes on the challenge to say only their best to themselves and those around them and does only their best at each moment.
