May you align with your beliefs and visions.
May you be a resolute person.
May your weekend be blessed with even the smallest ways of contributing something of value.
May you commit to living your ideals.
In a recent post (“Half-Way Through 2019: Goals Review Time!”) I shared that for many years on my spiritual journey I straddled two worlds… In one world I wanted to be a nun, and in the other world I wanted to find prince charming. In 2011 I ordered a gold snake ring (with amethyst crystal eyes) and placed it on my wedding ring finger to signify that I was married to Lord Shiva (an aspect of God in the Hindu trinity)… And I wore that ring for five years, during which time I continued dating earthly guys! Finally one of my sons convinced me to take off the ring and surrender to my desire for a partner…
Fast-forward to 2018, when I decided to renounce that desire and go fully for nunhood… One year ago today I put that snake ring back on my wedding ring finger, and for this whole year I have remained resolute in my decision to live in one world rather than straddling two worlds… And it has been hard work to get to where I am now, but it has been worth it. Lately I am feeling happier and happier (knock on wood!), and I am truly enjoying the happiness of the Spiritual Life.
Do you have any inner conflicts about your desires and visions? What are your ideals? What can you do today to live your ideals more fully?
May you feel happier and happier,
every day in every way!
