I like getting little daily messages; I’ve signed up for a number of them. Today’s little message from the Universe was particularly suitable for my life. It read:
The more you lean on me, Joy, the stronger we become.
The stronger we become, the bigger we dream, the higher we fly, the bluer the sky, and the happier we dance.
Lean on me,
I really understand today’s message! Or at least I think I do. Lately, there have been a few disappointments; but I know disappointments are a result of attachments. Anytime I’ve been disappointed, the realization comes to me (quicker these days) that if I wasn’t attached to a desire in some way, there would be no disappointment in the first place!
We all have times in life when we’ve felt misunderstood or when other folks arbitrarily decided who we are, but don’t really have the first real clue. Nobody can see us the way we truly are; I’ve come to believe that’s really impossible. My greatest sorrow has come from being completely misunderstood by others–I suppose it triggers those old soul wounds that I’m here to clear and heal. Sometimes we think we’re past things–that we’ve healed them; when (oops!) it comes back around again. That’s the nature of life I suppose; and Mercury retrograde right now helps those things along too.
For the life of me, I can’t seem to figure out why I continue to slip back into particular frames of mind where I expect that I’m understood, when (by now I should!) know better. I guess at times we become unconscious; we forget and we get caught up in the illusion of how we would like the world to be, rather than the way it really simply is.
It’s all good though; disillusionment happens, and it brings with it the tinge of a sorrowful or sad mood. And that stimulates reflection, contemplation and inner searching. Sometimes, it takes some quiet time to reach that state of awareness where in we can realize what’s going on. It enlightens us, once again, to the truth.
The opposite of sorrow, after all, is joy. And we reach for the joy again (the opposite polarity to sorrow), and by doing so we live out today’s message from The Universe. People will always disappoint you; same thing with anything else in the material world.
I vow to try harder to remember that! The Divine Within is the only unchanging, stable, secure and fully sociable factor that can be fully depended upon.
I will remember, for The Divine Within is my true joy! Here’s to going within and to leaning on The Universe!
The more you lean on me, Joy, the stronger we become. The stronger we become, the bigger we dream, the higher we fly, the bluer the sky, and the happier we dance.
Lean on me,
The Universe Rocks!
