Do you ever feel alone? Scared? Trapped? Or just lack a sense of purpose? This is a common feeling one gets during their transition from the morning of their life to the afternoon. We begin a self-reflecting process, looking back at what we have done thus far and what we can do to make a difference in this world.
A common reaction is…what will be my legacy? During this self-reflecting process two things can happen: One, the individual finds purpose and they live happily ever after; or two, they fail to see purpose right under their noses. Those who find purpose, go on to live happily ever after. The other ninety-five percent tend to live a miserable life.
Sounds like a fairytale right? Many will agree with this analogy of being a fairytale, but I assure you it is a reality for many. Whether we can get their on our own or by outside help, results are typically the same when intentions are applied. With our intentions, we apply a driving force backed by Source Energy. If our intentions are strong enough, the results predicted with more assurance.
As a man thinketh, so is he.
Entering into a new year, we are reminded of goal setting. Many will poo-poo the idea, but a small percentage will apply goal-setting to their to-do list. The other ninety-five percent will remain in darkness, never reaching for the Light.
Ani Po, once a Pilgrim in darkness, applied a new attitude of positivity. At first she did not know how to get there, until a man came along and offered her a hand…
Take my Hand through your darkness,
Let me help you see the Light.
I know your scared and your shaken,
but everything is going to be alright.
She accepted the hand and began faking it until she made it. This is an old trick of re-wiring the brain into believing something new. “Fake it until you make it.” Now, positivity is her norm and she is making goals for herself every year. In reality she knows that we don’t need to do anything except live in the moment, allowing all there is…to just be. However, she also knows that she may as well live it to the fullest, redirecting her thoughts into a direction she wants to go.
Ani Po learned a valuable lesson from her friend. She learned that in this life we only have each other to lend a hand. Whilst our faith in God and our service to humanity, we become one of the many Tools provided for others growth and they vice-verse. Ani Po learned that we need only look to God above for help and He will provide the Tools to get the job done: a person, a situation, a life lesson.
The quote above is a line from “Take my Hand” by Ben Merens, was written for another friend going through tough times. While many look to that song as being a bond between two people, I hear it as a covenant between an individual and the Lord. Whenever we are in darkness we can call out His name and He will surely answer.
Stepping into the Canvas taking Gods hand. In our darkest hours, we need only look within and His Light will surely shine through…every time. Look for a message in the trees, people, animals, the Big Tools that show up in our lives and the simplest of these things, for the answers may come in varying ways. It is said there is no place He is not and He is everywhere. He has created the Canvas of Life and He is the Canvas. Stepping into the Canvas of Life, we become apart of the Canvas, we in turn become a tool for another…
…Take my Hand.
