There are No Words – Day #3

There are No Words – Day #3

Caroline Myss QuoteI’m rarely at a loss for words, at least in written form, for today I find myself on a plateau of some sort. Yesterday, from about 3 o’clock on was torture, in some sort of nebulous, nondescript  way . I was hungry but I didn’t want to eat. I didn’t want anymore of what was on the okay list, and I really didn’t want what was on the not okay list. I woke up this morning thinking maybe I just should not eat at all today, but I’m putting one foot in front of the other, one sip or mouthful at a time and moving on.


Life after all is all about change and moving on. Nothing eve remains the same. If it does, I don’t know about you, but  I get really antsy or depressed. It seems we were designed to change and grow. From the midlife point on, I feel as though I’ve done a life time of growing – emotionally and spiritually.  Things I wanted so desperately to understand and incorporate into my  life at a very young age, are now seeming to make sense and fall in place.

I sometimes feel lately as if I was handed a gift when I was born, but didn’t have a clue what to do with it, or what it meant;  a beautiful, warm and sunny orb in the palm of my hand, that I tossed hither and yon like a hot potato, and too often put in a box out of sight. It lives and breathes with me a little more every day. I carry it with me close to my heart and often stand in awe of it.  I know if I allow it to be…if I let it warm and guide me…it will lead me where I need to go.

I believe we are all born with such a gift. Our task in life is simply to bring it out into the open and share its warmth with others.

I hope you will allow your golden orb to shine light and warmth into your world today.


“The journey of becoming conscious is not the capacity to get an angel to show up on your doorstep. The journey is to live the mystery and do it with spiritual elegance. To live the mystery and make choices while in the mystery that reflect that you have faith in a divine hand operating behind this all the time.”  Caroline Myss, Anatomy of the Spirit

  1. “The journey of becoming conscious” – that’s the story of my life! As you’ve said before, being aware and in the moment is the key to making changes and introducing better habits. And what you say regarding the gift we are born with gave me small shivers. I have convinced myself that mine is still hidden in the dark because I just cannot figure out what it is and what to do with it. I am amazed how in a short few posts you have pretty much summed up all my challenges and demons! Wow.

    1. I struggle with that as well. Perhaps we just have to live in the mystery of not knowing, while turning over rocks and trusting that we will see what we need to see. As we begin to separate illusion from truth about ourselves, our gifts become more clear. When we remove the shackles of external expectations and dwell more and more in our core selves, our gifts will present themselves more clearly.
