Darkness of our Nights

Acquainted with the Darkness of our nights, we embody the Light.~Ani Po

Recently I was on a spiritual retreat, with the purpose of digging further into my soul. In search of the darkened past that keeps me from moving forward into true authenticity, I encounter my worst nightmare…the self. With Ego standing firmly, as to protect me from false beliefs, I politely excuse him…inviting Spirit to take over.

Stepping into my darkness, i was given Light. As Spirit guides my future steps, I ask Her to keep me sharp…as if keeping a watchful eye on the Ego of the self. Letting go of my past…I step into a new reality…one which awaits my creative strokes…

The Greatest Gift

The greatest gift we have to offer is the selfless praising and lifting up of another.~Ani Po

When we stop competing, or trying to one-up another, we begin seeing things as they are…amazing. The fact that we are here and now, is a miracle itself. The fact, with all our adversities of yesterday, that we are still here, contemplating a new reality is…amazing!

Every day is a gift, a gifted opportunity to see life as it supposed to be. We can choose to see the suffering, we can choose to kick others to the curb…or we can see the many miracles of life, allowing others to shine. No longer worried about the self, but about the greater whole…we begin lifting Him up…to new levels…This is the Greatest Gift.
