to Are you ready to really shine?
First let's loosen up our limitations - it's the best way to grow and glow!
So, let's take a look: Where are the limits to your compassion? Your creativity? Your wisdom?
Now let yourself stretch them a bit further...
Is there someone who pushes your buttons? Maybe you tend to judge them. Now, instead, take a moment to really feel loving compassion for them. Imagine being in their shoes. Now be the Universe, just loving them. Feel that? It's the boundaries of your compassion... stretching.
Take a moment to doodle, to sketch, to write a lyric or poem, play a musical instrument, plan a garden. Feel that? It's the boundaries of your creativity... stretching.
What about wisdom? Cultivate self knowledge (which is the basis of wisdom) with meditation -- and then stretch yourself to also try something novel and new. Learn a few words of a new language, try your hand at ceramics, study history, experiment with your own home improvement or repairs. Feel that? It's the boundaries of your wisdom... stretching.
And when you do, you'll feel the awesome energy of life rushing to fill the extra space within you.
One of the most gratifying and fun things about this life is to feel yourself unfolding into your potential. You were born as an awesome beautiful being of light. Sometimes we just sometimes forget along the way.
So, stretch.....and grow.
“You must understand the whole of life, not just one little part of it.
That is why you must read, that is why you must look at the skies,
that is why you must sing, and dance, and write poems,
and suffer, and understand,
for all that is life.”
― Jiddu Krishnamurti
