What Must Be, Shall Be

You have beautiful dreams and inspired, bold ambitions. You are guided to believe that they are a natural expression of your soul, something that is meant to be. Life will support you in the xpression of those dreams and ambitions, even in the moments where it seems to be struggle, rather than support, that you are experiencing. The process for transformation into full maturity involves learning how to grow through light and through darkness back to the light again. You will always find  your way back to the light. Have faith in yourself and what must be. Dedicate yourself to what you lvoe without hesitation.

If you are experiencing loss or chage, have faith. Sometimes things happen that seem to be working against us. It is only later that they show themselves to have been valuable ways by which we aquired the greater faith, courage and deterinationn that were necessary to the fulfilment of our purpose. Know that your destiny is unfolding, and you are movign through circumstances that are ultiately going to help you become your soul in fullness and splendour. Keep going. Everything happening in your life is helping you to fulfil your devine potential. Know that any darkness will give way to light.

Also, what I am being led to intuitively add is that there are those who would attempt to stop you from shining or attaining your goals by undermining your self-confidence, or intimidation tactics. You have two choices in such circumstances: to focus on them or focus on your dreams. My father told me once that when running a race ( not that the attainment of your dreams is  a race . . . ) you could stop and argue with the hecklers; or, you could keep running. The former will guarantee you lose the race, while the latter provides you an opportunity to win.

Keep that in mind around those attempting to divert your attention with such tactics.

Namaste for a beautiful day! xo

Not only do I love how all these cards reinforce one another, but this one in particular also resonates with my poem in the Sacred Beliefs comp.

Today is Mardi Gras and I'm wondering if many here know the association?

In Anglican countries, Mardis Gras is known as Shrove Tuesdayófrom shrive meaning "confess"óor Pancake Dayóafter the breakfast food that symbolizes one final hearty meal of eggs, butter, milk and sugar before the fast.

This is the celebratory day before Lent, which begins tomorrow. Lent is meant to be a time of repentance which signifies Jesus' 40 days in the wilderness resisting temptation. Thus, many Christians worldwide relinquish something they truly love for Lent, which ends the night before Easter Sunday.

My beliefs are pretty much a reflection of my life, a plethora of cultural DNA containing memories of past lives and associations which can affect me. I have learned which to offer grace and let go with blessings, and others I align with. Jesus is an ascended Master I align with, so I do honor Lent by relinquishing something that makes me happy for 40 days as a humble reminder of how difficult it is to refrain from temptation, which in turn reminds us all how fragile we are as humans, and yet what strong survivors we are as well.

Temptation comes in many forms, most of which is bad for us physically ( drugs, tobacco, alcohol, etc ) spiritually ( disbelief in self, lack of hope, etc ), mentally ( people pleasing, saying yes when you mean no, etc. ), or emotionally (taking things personally, misperceptions, etc ). That's why it's called temptation.

I've been observing Lent for decades and it truly does strengthen your resolve toward any goal you may have set. It's a somewhat difficult time and will present many challenges. I remember one year I gave up sugar, and I swear, every time I turned around someone was bringing donuts, cookies, cakes, etc.

But, I will never forget how sugar tasted differently that Easter Sunday dinner. It was more sweet than I remembered, and much less was needed. But what I enjoyed the most was the sense of accomplishment. It changes you; it disciplines you; it enlightens you.

I hope everyone who observes is blessed with perseverence and grace! Enjoy your pancakes for supper! xo

The farther north you live, the less you want to be exposed to ice or any other frozen substances.

My house is kept at a cool 63 F and that's only because of the body heat all the cats give off. So I certainly can't give up heat or cats.

Nor could I give up sugar. Without it, I would surely collapse. It's the glue-cose that holds my body's molecules together.

I would make an awful Lentist.

Lent isn't just about giving up food. There are a lot of other things you could relinquish. A fav television series. Anything that means something to you; it's not like you can't watch the reruns at a later date.  Lent is an opportunity to deny yourself of something that means something ( not just something that you randomly can do without ).

It's a simple reminder of how difficult it is to be human  at times; and increases our compassion for others.
