Week 15 – I am Nature’s Greatest Miracle
“I am nature’s greatest miracle”
“I have been given eyes to see and a mind to think and now I know a great secret of life for I perceive, at last, that all my problems, discouragements, and heartaches are, in truth great opportunities in disguise. I will no longer be fooled by the garments they wear for mine eyes are open”
I reflected on the above paragraph and realised how true this was for me. We have all faced our “problems, discouragements, and heartaches and as I look back I acknowledge the fact that they were indeed opportunities in disguise. The reason I give for this is the fact that they have helped me to become the person I am today. They have helped me to grow intuitively, spiritually, to look within and acknowledge that we are unique in every way – our very own shining golden Buddha. As much as we try to overlook our greatness, our inner potential, we all have a purpose in life to share with each and everyone that crosses our path, whether it is for them to teach us by reflecting back at us who we were previously, and at this moment in time, and likewise for us to teach them.
One of my DMP goals is “I committed to releasing the beliefs, habits, emotions and behaviour that no longer served me”. Personally not playing small but to step into my true potential, letting go of the old habits of not speaking my truth, because I’d conditioned myself to keep the peace, by keeping quiet – to a certain degree. To love myself is to speak up and honour who I am and not worry about the opinions or reactions of others. To believe in myself, letting go of the beliefs stemming from our parents, their parents and the parents before them – the beliefs ingrained in our ancestral genes.
So the latest exercise of noting down our successes no matter how small or big I was surprised at how much I’d forgotten I had accomplished over the years and it brought back memories of fondness and pride on quite a few of my achievements. From Karate (Xena Warrior Princess comes to mind – I used to imagine myself as kick ass warrior woman tee hee!!), teaching Tai Chi, my creative abilities, in dressmaking, baking, cooking, dancing, achieving my degree as a single parent. Travelling to dream destinations such as Egypt – I loved the history and Sri Lanka for the Ayurverdic experience and my latest stint as steelband player.
It is not often that I have given myself the opportunity to reflect on my accomplishments and it made me realise that I have only tapped the surface of what I can really actually achieve. At the same time I am so grateful and humbled by my experiences and the lessons I have learnt on my journey of self discovery.
