With so much in the world grabbing our attention (politics, the economy, injustice, or more mundane things, like whether or not you should get the newest iPhone, who to invite to the upcoming holiday dinner,, etc.) it's so easy to forget that all of these "things" play as a mere distraction to the real essence of life: You.
The shiny things I listed above may have a tone of hate, polarization, or anxiety but they are quite adept in their purpose to keep us in our eyes and head and away from why we're all really here on earth.
It's to know our light and be clear enough to let it shine....and to OWN it as the truth that automatically puts those shiny objects in their place as secondary to your soul's information on what to do with all of that "stuff."
This is much easier than it sounds and believe me, it's taken quite a while to undo the tendrils, root by root, to stand in this new way of living.
But, start by questioning whether or not the shiny objects are really that important in getting you closer to a wellspring of joy. They won't, I assure you.
The shiny objects will always be there, but fewer in number because the mere shift, moment by moment, of having your soul center stage can have an inexplicable effect on what persists.
And without their distraction, the more amazed you'll be by what your light and power really look and feel like.
Even though it's taken me a while to understand this, I hope you already know this one truth: You are the light in the world that makes everything around you come alive and shine.
