THE POWER IN BEING FILLED

"Only a powerful soul can offer love. Only a powerful soul can afford to be humble. If we are weak, then we become selfish. If we are empty, we take; but if we are filled, we automatically give to all. That is our nature."

Dadi Prakashmani, 1922-2007
Indian Peace Activist and Spiritual Leader

A powerful soul, a soul full of power, that's the soul that can love. Rojo said to me yesterday morning while typing madly on his computer, "Mom, I just love your soul." I actually can't believe he said that, because if there's one thing my soul is not these days, it's filled.

There are a lot of things on my To Do list and all of them important, but none of them as crucial as making my soul powerful. Full of power.

The longest, most arduous journeys so often bring us right back to where we started. But with our newfound perspective, we see that what we sought, we had all along.

OR

Hey Tin Man - you already have a heart.

Look carefully, my friend. You already have everything you seek.

Every. Thing.

The boy has connections. Listen to him. And listen to your ownself, too. I think the emptiness of grief is different from soul emptiness, but might feel the same.

Sometimes the only way to make your self powerful is UNPLUG. Stop and (re)fill the well.

You soul is already power-full, all-knowing, and full of love. That is its divine nature and birthright.

You, my friend, need a day to do nothing but please yourself. No one but yourself.

I am reminded of that tote bag of yours that got stuck in the closet....sisterus interruptus. Perhaps a day to unpack the bag a bit? You certainly deserve it.

Wow, that he said that. I think that was a message, and he was being used by Grace to give it to you.

Get it?
