When we think with fearful thoughts, we attract more fear in our lives. Likewise, when we think with loving thoughts, we attract more love and so we become more loving and loved. As we give, so shall we receive. I understand these dubious statements may not always appear to ring true. But whenever I speak, I am speaking to the highest within you. The love you give is always given back to you on the spiritual level but you are not aware of this because you think true love is confined to a limited, decaying, temporal body. It is not. If you but surrender to the love within you, you will feel it embracing both your heart and your mind. This love that I speak of is the love flowing within you, above you, below you, beside you, beyond you all from no one else but you. You cannot feel this right now, because you do not realize what you truly are…and what you truly are… is this love that I speak of.
Now do not get me wrong, I have absolutely nothing against birth certificates or days of birth. Matter a fact, birthdays are astrologically and astronomically significant with respect to zodiac signs and solar returns. So yes, birthdays can be fun. In addition, birthday celebrations can be quite uplifting. It is the one day taken out of many in which the individual is recognized, appreciated, and acknowledged. It is the one day people set aside their own time, to go out of their way for someone they care about; to do wonderful things such as offer chocolates, flowers, or other delectable, aesthetically pleasing gifts.
The problem arises, however, when the individual becomes so emotionally engaged to the day of her birth, that she fails to acknowledge that every day is actually her birth day. For every day has the potential to be a day of awakening. She could have been born on any day, she just happened to be born on that particular point in time when the Earth made a complete rotation on its axis. I say every day is a day of birth, implying that at one point there is death. There is indeed a period when people fail to live. Those people fail to live when they are in fear. Because those who live in fear never really live at all. Thus, when we overcome the obstacles, courageously fight the fear, and keep going when we feel we cannot go on any longer, that is when we become alive…again.
That is our birth day. That is the day to celebrate. That is the day worth remembering. How lovely life would be, if that were our every day?It is not the New Year we anticipate on the eve of December 31st, rather it is the beginning of a new soul; the beginning of a new life, no matter how similar it may seem.
Happy Birthday Everybody (:
