For your consideration….

This is important. Who we really are…our true self…. comes from the inside out. It is our authentic self.

We were born with our authentic self. It is our core being. It is aligned with our life purpose. It is our center. All of our actions, words, thoughts should originate from our authentic self if we want to live an authentic life. Our authentic self knows that we are invaluable, cherished and loved. It has complete faith in itself.

As we go through this life, stuff happens. Rather than rebuke judgment, we let it stick to us and then absorb it. The reality is that the ego attracts crap. Whether we let it stick to us is totally up to us but we forget that. We let disappointment, hurt, challenges attach themselves. They worm their way into our authentic self and try to redefine or at least color and alter who we really are. We begin to live our life from the outside in versus inside out.

But we have a choice. We can deflect what hurts us. We can turn away what is not true. We can reject what wants to cover our authentic self. We can return to our own truth and live authentically.

We have a choice. We always have a choice.

That is the HOPE. And so it is.

Bit by bit, piece by piece, HOPE by HOPE action steps anyone can take….

-Affirm…I am Loved.

-Meditate/pray…ask…”What is my next step for my highest good and the highest good of all?”

-Drink lots of water.

-Get outdoors and take in at least 10 deep breaths.

-Live authentically. Let your authentic self lead the way.

What made me smile yesterday….

-A day with the family.

-A trip to Whistler Peak.

-I tend to not walk outdoors in the snow but this trip has reminded me how much I love it.

-Finished a good book then started one that wasn’t. I normally painfully read to the end anyway. I am trying to change that this year. Yesterday, I skipped through the rough parts and voila, book done and onto a better one.

Love, Blessings and Gratitude,

Rev. Chris
