It is amazing how events happen to us that unexpectedly change our lives from one minute to the next. It makes one realize more than ever the power of the eternal NOW!
We had our internal living room ceiling roof collapse about two weeks ago and it has been a challenge, a rough time, a total change in lifestyle in a split of a second, yet it has been one of the most rewarding growth experiences of our lives.
Life throws "fast balls"at one, that when you have special circumstances, or loved ones with challenging abilities increase the effect. I feel so blessed to have the teachings and experience to be able to live up to the times.
I have grown in unsurpassed ways in order to face financial, spiritual, living, mental, and emotional needs of not just myself, but of all of those (5 people) who depend on me for support of all kinds.
I am so much more aware of my strengths, patience, gratefulness, perseverance, and infinite grace/diplomacy. I have faced incredible hurdles that have tested my mind resourcefulness and wit. Have faced extraordinary people with kindness and help, yet have seen those whom seemed rich and powerful in the outside, yet empty and lonely in their hearts. I have seen people pretend to have what they did not own, and look arrogantly failing in the process. I have seen seemingly powerful people and beggars whose wisdom, heart or lack of it proved their real worth. I met those who judged by the feathers of the bird and not by the might of their wings and heart.
To my sisters at Miami Children's Hospital
"I feel so grateful to belong to a wonderful group of people whom I call my friends and sisters. Whom I love dearly and feel so proud of. My dearests, I have seen so much vain and false egos at the areas of where I am currently experiencing my life. A fancy hotel, in a beautiful place, yet empty, oh so empty. We are so lucky to share a wonderful place of work and passion, where we do not judge each other by what we wear, what we own, or the car we drive. A place where we truly care for the heart inside, the soul that feeds our lives, the wink of an eye, the support of each other with true caring and sharing. Oh how lucky are we, now that I see how unhappy so many people are outside our own world, I am more grateful of ours. Rejoice my sisters, 'cause though not perfect, we have a piece of heaven."
I have learned to acquire an infinite compassion towards those who, while thinking they were in a position of power to control the lives of others, were only poorly conceited souls whom used their momentary might to increase their own egos. Yet achieved nothing but loosing a huge potential client on the long run (hotel).
Oh how I have grown, I have met angels who were total strangers who by a twist of fate, came to see us from the inside out, going through our most intimate details and things within our home. How gentle and caring, supporting and showing of real power and might. Of sharing stories of experiences of our lifetimes with a total stranger, yet feel the power of the Divine uniting our hearts and soul as one in a communion of life.
Of hope and the wisdom to look beyond the dirt, the neverending change, the challenges, and yet to experience the awe of being able to dream, start with a clean slate, the look forward to being home again.
My dear friends, it is in the most emotionally intense moments that we have a choice either to grow and acquire great wisdom and immense experience or to drawn in the hopelessness pits of self compassion and despair. "Of course asking ourselves why."
I have chosen to increase my vibrational state in this situation. As one of my favorite authors, Esther and Jerry Hicks say " is this going to raise my vibrational state or is this going to bring me down lower than before? " I choose to grow, change the context of the seemingly difficult situation, smile to those who maybe look mean or conceited, at the total stranger, or to the guy who serves the bread or is my parking attendant.
What a joy to have been able to jump this hurdle, go forth and feel empowered to know that I can go way beyond my own perceived limitations, that nothing is impossible if one has the truth and the persistence to pursue it, that beyond the darkest clouds, thunder and rain, the sun is always there shining better than ever.
I choose to LIVE, LIVE, LIVE and share it with you all!!!
