No matter how many times my knees scuff the ground, no matter how many mistakes I make, I realize that heaven still exists within me. Nothing can ever carry me away from such holiness unless I give it the power to do so.
Our purpose is not future decision, a tenure goal or vision we created to convince ourselves that we are only worthy if we work hard enough for it. It is none of that. Our purpose is simply to exist in love. We can shift the quality of our existence and the meaning of our existing as we navigate each season of our life, but it will always remain the same. LOVE.
The source of our stress, anxiety, and suffering can most certainly be found in the past and in the unknown (the future). We spend so much of our time, and so much of our days on this planet, reliving the past or obsessing about the future. Both are moving unnecessarily in directions that do not exist. What exists is the present moment. In that moment.
Is there any question as to why we default to a lack, poverty, and scarcity mindset? It’s what we’ve been taught. It’s what we know. It’s what we’ve been led to believe. Abundance always says there is more than enough; while scarcity says we must hold on and withhold because there is not enough. Abundance is based in love, while scarcity is based in fear.
