See where your own energy wants to go, not where you think it should go. Do something because it feels right, not because it makes sense. Follow the spiritual impulse. Mary Hayes-Grieco
I think of a Spiritual Impulse as Self greeting Soul and resonating in harmony with GOD. Think of a vortex of energy moving gently, with loving purpose, up through the chakras.
Personally, I like the big exhale at the end.
When we surrender to God, we surrender to something bigger than ourselves – to a universe that knows what it’s doing. When we stop trying to control events they fall into a natural order, an order that works. We’re at rest while a power much greater than our own takes over, and it does a much better job than we cold have done. We learn to trust that the power that holds galaxies together can handle the circumstance of our relatively little lives. ~ Marianne Williamson
Reminder to Me:
When I start to look at the Big Picture and, once again, realize I am unable to even comprehend how Big the Picture really is, I have to acknowledge the fact that my life and it’s circumstance are microscopic in comparison. I have imposed my will inappropriately many times over many years and it has brought me nothing but trouble. I now know I have a better chance if I let GOD sort things out. When my EGO wants to run the show and I begin to think in terms of orchestration and control I am now able to recognize it sooner and, if I’m smart, I immediately surrender to win.
I let it go. I give it away with Love and trust the outcome.
The Creator of the Universe, who has ordered the stars and the heavens and the earth, has a plan for your life. You are not a random act. You are not here by chance, but by design. You are destined for greatness that begins with your believing in your own destiny.
Mary Manin Morrissey
Allow me to accept
Other people’s families, fears
Delusions, denials and insecurities
As belonging to them. Not me.
Let me recognize
How my thoughts and actions affect my relationships.
If they are healthy then please let me nurture them.
But if they’re toxic allow them immediate release.
Please balance me with Love
While I continue this journey
Forward, in health and wholeness.
Ours is not the task of fixing the entire world all at once, but of stretching out to mend the part of the world that is within our reach. Any small, calm thing that one soul can do to help another soul, to assist some portion of this poor suffering world, will help immensely. It is not given to us to know which acts or by whom, will cause the critical mass to tip toward an enduring good. What is needed for dramatic change is an accumulation of acts, adding, adding to, adding more, continuing. We know that it does not take “everyone on Earth” to bring justice and peace, but only a small, determined group who will not give up during the first, second, or hundredth gale.
Clarissa Pinkola Estes
We are living in a time when life is moving so rapidly that we can’t afford to cling to old rocks. There is far greater wisdom (and joy) in opening to the adventure and making a game of flowing with the stream. It really is quite a beautiful ride. Sometimes it seems that life is not working, but it is. The universe is intelligent, and our game is to remember that perfection is always unfolding, even when we do not see it in a cloudy moment. ~ Alan Cohen
I want to continue to explore, expand my horizons. There are so many fascinating subjects to research and an abundance of life to experience. I don’t want to cling to a rock until my dying day. I’m enjoying my adventure and am finally able to see it for what it is; for what it has always been. I’m recognizing the lessons and learning. I’m learning that everyone I come in contact with has something to teach me and I am grateful for that opportunity. Sometimes I instantly recognize the significance of the message and other times the lesson isn’t immediately clear. Sooner or later (and it’s sooner and sooner now) it appears and I am able to acknowledge it.
Life is moving at an amazing speed at this point in time and I know I’m not the only one who feels it. It’s not frantic or stressed out. It’s more like the information highway from the cosmos. I am receptive and am having revelations right and left, out of the blue. Many people are, it seems. Are you ? I’m also witnessing more kindness. Yesterday I pulled up to the drive through window at Starbuck’s with money in hand and found that the unknown person in the truck ahead of me paid had my tab. I was so overwhelmed by that simple act of kindness… paying it forward (backwards!) It’s another reminder that helps keep my faith in humankind alive. I know it was a direct message to me to be more giving, loving and kind.
Time is unfolding, more is being revealed and I gratefully await to see what it brings.

I was listening to a podcast the other day and heard someone comment that “GOD speaks to us through one another”. I agree. On many occasions GOD has offered me the right words to speak when they are needed or they are spoken to me through someone else at exactly the right time. However, when I’m not in a “fit condition” mentally, spiritually and emotionally there is another force that just wants to be in charge of everything. That force is EGO. When I’m into EGO I’m unable to work well with GOD.
At some time along the way someone said GOD is an acronym for Good Orderly Direction while EGO is Easing God Out. I’ve always liked that. It makes sense to me that putting EGO before GOD blocks, blurs and distorts all matters of Spirit and defeats the true self. My belief that GOD resides within me gives me the power to recognize EGO problems. Refusing that recognition is a denial of what GOD needs done. Being aware of how EGO affects my whole being… my Good Orderly Direction… keeps me more comfortable with the “shedding process” and the new aspects of self that continue to emerge.
