A Beautiful Mess
“As she almost collapsed to the ground, she stopped and looked around: she looked at herself and said, “What a mess you are,” but what a beautiful mess, it’s called strength. You are black and blue, scared and exhausted. But I am proud of you at how far you have come, and you didn’t give up, you have been through a lot. She recognized how much strength already existed inside her, and how much strength she had gained along the way. She stood up tall, even though she was tired, hungry, and exhausted, putting one foot in front of the other, she continued on her journey.”
All Will Be Well ~ St. Julian of Norwich
Always take the optimistic outlook over everything, and banish all gloom and negativity. You are surrounded by many wonderful people, things, and experiences in life. Why not concentrate on them and give thanks for them, letting go and releasing all that is unpleasant, unhappy or difficult? By your attitude and outlook you draw to you the very best or the very worst in life. Therefore, if you are blaming your circumstances, life or people for your misfortunes, look within to see what you can do to change your attitude. As you start doing it, little by little you will find changes taking place, and you will begin to realise how mightily blessed you are and how truly wonderful life is. What a joy and a privilege it is to be alive, to be where you are, doing what you are doing, surrounded by so many wonderful things and people! Start right now looking for them. They are right there, so you will not have to look very far.
I don’t receive a penny for saying this but Eileen Cady published a 25th Anniversary edition of the book and you can find it at Amazon, http://www.amazon.com/Opening-Doors-Within-Meditations-Findhorn/dp/1844091082/ref=sr_1_sc_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1281370972&sr=8-1-spell, or perhaps local bookstore.
