I have always been a very sensitive being. Sensative in ways that I was later to learn, not all are sensative in. Somehow, deep inside, I always knew that I was here to bring, or share, peace & love. Where there was chaos, I tried to make a balance of peace. Where there was anger, I felt a deep urge to help bring the anger to happiness or joy. Where there was hate, I have a need to turn it to love.
As I grew older, I realized that this had been a consistant thing in my life. A part of me that has been with me all of my life.
As a child, I watched & listened to my uncle literally torment my aunt verbally & sometimes even physically, & instead of finding remorse in her getting the beating, I found sympathy for my Uncle & even felt sorry for him. I felt bad for my aunt too but I felt worse for my Uncle.
I watched my dad, an alcoholic, beat everyone in my house for a number of years & felt so sorry for him. It was like he was fighting himself & his words would fly in a fury & impact the very ones he loved. And he would get mad & become physically violent, but I always loved him. I felt sorry for him & I was scared to death that he would eventually end up killing one us. His rage was so all consuming that it must have been a tormenting ordeal for him.
Be allof my experiences as they may, they are the foundation of the very Me that I am & they are only a fraction of the events in my life that has made me whole. The totality of all of my experiences are what has prepared me for the days that I live in now &I now know they were all very much needed.
I thankful for all of the people who have shared of themselves in my life & allowed me the experiences that I have been able to experience. Looking back, I realize if one thing that has happened had not have happened, I would not be where I am today.
There is a magic that lies within the very fabric of life. A magic that holds it all together & makes it run smoothly, even in times when we think things are not running so smoothe. And the mystery of that magic works within us all.
I don't believe in coincidences. I believe that everything happens for a reason & we learn through our experiences. Every experience shaping us into the people that we are today.
And I believe that when we ask a question (even within ourselves) the universe starts pouring out the answer to us through our lives. Most of the time, life is giving us messages or answers even when we are not asking for them.
If you want to know what your messages are, here is something you can try. Become aware of your surroundings. Notice everyone around you, especially those eyes that meet yours. These people, as well as all your surroundings, have a message for you. Your message lies in your view of this person & what the person represents to you. How does this representation apply to your life? Ask yourself,
"What is my message in this situation or person?"
"How does this resemble me or my life?"
Ask yourself what this person or surroundings represent in your life. Maybe it will be in what they say, or maybe it will be in your thoughts of the person or surrounding. But one thing that you can be sure of is that they do represent a part of your life or they would not be standing in front you. And if you listen honestly with your heart, you will hear your message. Your messages are there & always have been. And by seeing & hearing these messages, you will be more able to make the changes needed for betterment not only in own life, but also in humanities life as a whole. Soon you will realize just how important every little detail of every little thing is & how it is all needed.
And that brings us to what my book is about.
It is my hopes that through sharing my stories with the rest of the world, it will help others to find greater meaning in their lifes, & allow them to see life through new eyes.
God blesses you all.
