“He who has faith has… an inward reservoir of courage, hope, confidence, calmness, and assuring trust that all will come out well – even though to the world it may appear to come out most badly.” – B.C.Forbes
Hey beautiful people!
Hope here and it is a perfect morning to write a quick love note, from my heart to yours!
During my daily sunrise walk, I did my usual reflections and took my pictures. As always, taking in the bounty of Mother Nature and her ability to guide us in all of life!
I thought of the sea oat standing tall and how it has the ability to survive in some of the toughest conditions. Drought tolerant, able to handle sea spray, brief periods of drenching sea water, full sun, harsh sandy winds, and coarse sediment soil. Yet even in these harsh conditions it is able to produce a massive root system and is an important plant to the coastal community!
As humans, we are no different! We can survive in some of the harshest conditions and are incredibly resilient and so very important to one another and our communities.
One of the key components to our resiliency is our faith! A faith that we keep strong and never stop believing…
In our loved ones.
In the good of this world.
In the good of the human race.
In the God of your understanding.
So no matter what, keep that faith!
Have faith in a world that doesn’t always make much sense…
We all have the ability to study the canvas of suffering and gradually free ourselves from that picture.
When we bring our spiritual practice and faith together with philosophy and psychology, we have an elixir to the art of peaceful acceptance and the ability to shed any suffering.
The fact is, most folks do pretty darn good when things go pretty darn bad!
As we study spirituality, come to terms with our mortality, understand that God and the universe have a way of weeding out people and situations that aren’t for us, we can embrace that how we handle those instances is more about one’s state of mind then external events.
Listen to the God of your understanding, and allow whatever isn’t for you to go, no matter how painful…without question.
Do not try to hold on. That isn’t to say you can’t honor that which meant so much, yet in holding on…the loop of suffering has a way of continuing.
Trust and give blessings to all situations and circumstances as you go your way.
Be like the sea oat standing tall, accepting of the conditions yet still firmly rooted in its ability to be resilient and grow!
Have faith that everything happens for a reason and it happens for our own good. Sometimes even the greatest tragedy that seems to have no explanation.
As you grow forward, you can trust that it all will make sense one day.
Keep the faith I know you have.
“Faith in oneself is the best and safest course.” – Michelangelo
Now have a wonderful day with the knowledge that no matter what, faith will prevail.
As always…Go in love,
