“…It is Glorious to Be Here…”

Standard

“I see myself in perfect health. I see myself in absolute prosperity. I see myself invigorated with life, appreciating, again, this physical life experience which I wanted so very much as I decided to be a physical Being. It is glorious to be here, a physical Being, making decisions with my physical brain but accessing the power of the Universe through the power of the Law of Attraction.”
— Abraham

This is my new favorite quote. When I read it just moments ago for the first time, it hit me. hard. Felt it deeply in my heart and my solar plexus. Particularly the “it is glorious to be here” piece. This is my goal from now on. This is the awareness that I want and need to carry close to my heart — that no matter what, “it is glorious to be here”. Glorious. glo·ri·ous adjective
1.delightful; wonderful; completely enjoyable: to have a glorious time at the circus.
2.conferring glory: a glorious victory.
3.full of glory; entitled to great renown: England is glorious in her poetry.
4.brilliantly beautiful or magnificent; splendid: a glorious summer day.
5.Archaic. blissfully drunk.
Because, if I’m being completely honest with myself, this state of being is not a neighborhood I hang out in most of the time. Content? Yes. Joyful? Definitely have moments of joy throughout my day. But what I’m noticing lately is just how much I push up against in my day to day life. It expresses itself in different ways of course. Most of the time I manage to make light of whatever it is that’s stuck in my craw at the moment. And I’ve been blessed with a fantastic sense of humor which has been a true ally over the years. But this resistance I feel – this ever present drive that wishes for something else…something other than what’s right in front of me. now. in this moment. is something I would love to transform. When I reflect on my own personal Human Design, there are of course explanations for this. But what I’m aiming for is acceptance. To be able to just breathe it all in and say, calmly and compassionately to myself: “it’s all ok…you’re exactly where you need to be. right now. The time for fighting and warriorhood is over. Breathe it all in. And smile.”

What tools do you use to accept the present moment? How do you deal with resistance? I’d love to hear about it. : )

  1. This is a beautiful post…dare I say, “glorious?” Like you, I find myself “aiming for acceptance.” I think I’ll have it, and then I’ll find myself thinking, “I wish xxx were different,” or, “Why does so-and-so have to act that way?” What tools do I use to deal with these moments of resistance? Awareness: I try to notice when these thoughts come. Gentleness: I try to cut myself some slack for thinking these thoughts to begin with! Breath: I try to breathe in and out and open up to acceptance. Love: I ask Nature to connect me with the unconditional love in my heart and then I offer that love to the “xxx” or “so-and-so” that are bugging the bejeezers out of me. Gratitude: I say a prayer of thanks to the “xxx” or “so-and-so,” recognizing that, to paraphrase Dr. Wayne Dyer, they are angels who have joined me on my path to give me an opportunity to learn and grow. This week, I especially needed a reminder that I’ve got these tools in my toolbox. Thank you, Madeleine.
