I have traveled, explored, camped and hiked all to find answers. The astonishing answer that I found at this retreat is that the answers, paths and solutions are within me. I simply refused to ever acknowledge them or take the time to look within. I have discovered what seems almost like a magical power. I have been awakened to find "he" doesn't have my path planned for me, the people around me don't decide what my day or life entails; it is me. It always has been an answer within me.
During a mediation exercise I found a heart string connection. And to my surprise it connected with not who I thought it should but who would be the most receptive of my love and energy. Today I walk with my head higher, with my energy brighter and my mantra repeated with each breath I breath. I am love. I am enough.
Life is all so often lived in the past or in the future. What ever happened to right now? Literally that one breath in as you sit and read this. And what about the breath after that? Where are you within that moment? Where does your heart and your true energy pull you right now? That is where we should all be. Not in that thought of a relationship that hurt us months ago or that house we just have to buy by the time we get that next raise.
Live in each breath. Live in each true moment you hold.
