i'm back, and what an amazing summer!! i learned so much, delved greatly and generally forged my way into my own best ... i'm excited, humbled by the experience, and in great awe in general. so, without further ado ...
the principle of cosmic order.
in rereading all the posts here, i can't help but feel as though i have somehow been planning all of this for a very long time. i found further validation of my feeling in a journal that had written itself (through me, from the universe) 5 years ago. i did not know it at the time, but i was even then attempting to learn this best self/best life i so wanted to (live) bring, without even understanding anything about what it would entail or look like. what i learned is that i had written a clear, decisive guide : i had written the path, and then without my conscious knowledge began walking it. i learned that the steps are straightforward and relatively simple, but the self-work involved encompassed many unanswered questions for which i yearned (and delved) answers. i learned (further) that those questions were answered even before i had remembered to ask.
i am all i need to be, and this realization has made all the difference. the most succinct way i can describe the lovely discoveries over the summer is simply this:
i delved to seek
i dared to knock
and then, i realized that what i had brought looked a lot like:
knowledge of my own power;
courage in discovery;
faith in my own certain way.
what we are ultimately determines what we do.
it's so great to say (know) that i am! all i can dream, all i can be, all i choose ...
