Walking with the Divine Goddess

posted in: Inspiration | 11
I have been talking to friends and reading that a lot of us are having questions about wanting more.  Some are feeling flat. Others are not believing that we can ask for and have it all.
So, my first thought is, be prepared with your list.
Because it can and will happen.  Just be clear what MORE means to you, individually.
I think as we transition from Maiden to Mother to Crone, there is an innate Wisdom that becomes so well seated within us.  This knowledge seeks a fulfillment like never before.  There is an Awakening that rushes in with a Passion, an Intensity and a Heralding of Rebirth that can take us quite by surprise.
It can literally transform the most mundane into the quintessential ecstasy.
But, you have to have a List!

I am spending time in Upstate New York with my family.  This is where I grew up.  I am taking the time to retrace my childhood steps and to reconnect with the life I once knew here so well.  This journey for me has been one filled with a humbling gratitude for the memories I have here and for the people who so lovingly shaped my young World.
This is where my LIST finds its roots.

 

My childhood backyard

 

My purpose back home is to help my mom.  She just went through aortic heart valve replacement surgery.  And Everything went beautifully for her!
My secondary focus is on balancing myself and really listening to my soul’s conversation in the solitude of long walks.  The walks I am on take me through the multitude of adventures I had as a kid growing up.
 Taking these long hikes through the forests, rounding corners and coming upon open clearings and ponds filled with migrating Canadian geese, has stirred my energy.  There, I hear the laughter and excitement of my younger self carried through the winds of time.  I am connecting once more to the dreams and limitless potentialities of my Soul.  I hear my heart’s wishes and I see with clarity, the never-ending cycle of Life and the Love it creates.
 And now, more so than ever before, I want to embrace all that life has to offer.  I don’t want to waste a moment wondering if I missed something or that I didn’t have the courage to look Life boldly in the eye and tell it my most secret wishes.
I have my list.
It’s really not that complicated.
 I want the Peace of Contentment.
It is what my Soul yearned for at 18.  And it is still the Song of my Soul.

 

The Sea Faring Man

 

Like a lighted lantern on a dismal day, all of my hopes and aspirations have illuminated the path I’m on.  I want to continue to walk in Light, in Truth and in Appreciation for the beautiful Life I call mine.

 

My Lttle!!

 

Looking at the faces of generations,  I see the strength and passion of those who have come before us and of those who forge ahead with courage and conviction today.
What resilience there is in the smiles and in the hearts of those I love.

In nature, I have found the Divine Goddess.  I have asked her to walk with me and illuminate my path.  While not every path is an easy one, the one flooded with the most light surely will be the one I will choose.

So, what does MORE mean to you?

    D,
    Beautifully written . More? for me… means security, Grandchildren, Health. I don’t think I’m being unreasonable, although I have been blessed with all that God, Life and Love has given me. But you are asking for “More”.
    More time spent with family, that wants to spend time with you too… Let’s get together soon D.
    Love,
    Nancy

      Yes! More time spent with family and those who have become ‘adopted’ family! These are the precious moments that cannot be bought or replaced with anything else. I like to think that these moments make the difference between mediocrity and extraordinary! So, here’s to time well spent together this summer. Love you always!XO

      Thank you for taking the time to read this morning! I love to ask questions that get us thinking a little differently. I believe that is where Love expands from. Have a Lovely Memorial Day Weekend!

    Such a beautiful read. To grow up in such a splendid place must have certainly shaped you for the better.
    “In nature I have found the Divine Goddess”…yes, me too. Definitely the Divine. And I realize that all I really need more of is found in the natural world. Fresh air and clean water and healthy food and birdsong and the swaying trees and the diversity of plants and animals. That, and my family, are all I need and so much more.
    Thank you for sharing this loveliness… xx

    This is beautiful post! I hope many people read it. Awareness and gratitude for the things around us and the life we have already lived is surely a great focus. I do believe in a list so I will make mine now. Actually I’ll make two. One is a list of things I want to focus on and do and one is things I HAVE done. Best wishes for a speedy and complete recovery for your mum xx

      I appreciate your idea of creating two lists! Where we have been and where we have yet to go… I am looking forward to the journey! Thank you for taking the time to read this. And thank you for your good wishes for Mom. XO
