is for now
I recently had a conversation with a group of people and we were talking about how we got to be where we are. Not in the physical location sense of where we live, but who we are as people. All the choices and events, big and small, that brought us to our unique being-ness.
I kind of like those periodic reviews. I love how it feels so perfect – my life is inseparable from who I AM. It isn’t something that happened to me – I created it every step of the way. Through what seem from my limited human experience, good choices and not-so-good ones. From a divine perspective we can get rid of the judgment. And what I’ve come to trust after all these life years is that I can get rid of the judgment here too.
I’m exactly where I’m supposed to be. And if there’s some part of my life that isn’t reflecting who I truly am or isn’t making me vibrate in contentment, joy, or delicious excitement, well, then, it’s up to me to course correct. To use the feedback of my life to access how aligned I am with my Divine design expressed in ways that bring me joy.
Isn’t it exciting to know you’re the one creating your life? And that every experience has been fodder for remembering both who you are and helping you articulate your preferences. Every step is beckoning you into the current you. Where you are now is what’s important. Where you’ve been is just a curiosity – the rocket fuel – that moved you here. Now. In this moment. Into the you you currently are.
And what if, from this now moment forward we actually use all our superpowers, our heart compasses, our genius brains, our brilliant guidance and keep asking the questions “am I being true to me?” “Am I letting the fullness of my being flow through me NOW in this moment?”
I love this quote by Hafiz:
“This place where you are right now,
God circled on a map for you.”
It makes me laugh. It makes me feel good. It reminds me everything is okay. More than okay. Perfect. I am exactly where I chose to be and my ability to continue making choices and designing my life is increasingly refined, increasingly genius, increasingly honoring the fullness of my being.
And because the cosmic winks and high fives and divine support are endlessly conspiring to amuse me, I have to share this. I found this vintage French map the other day, and it fills me with delight. Seriously – a pink map! Why aren’t there more pink maps?!
Let me ask you – where are you now? Don’t tell me a land location. Tell me a heart location. Or the position of your dream. Or what color is your today. You know I want to hear. Tell me.
I am thoughtful, reflective, thinking about what’s next for me. I love the quote by Hafiz! Thanks for sharing this thoughtful post Deborah.
Beautiful Nancy. It feels like we’re smack in the middle of that reflective/planning energy doesn’t it?
