It’s wise to remind ourselves that we’re part of Nature and that becoming whole is, accordingly, a natural unfolding of the seed potential that lies within each of us at birth.
We can, of course, later contribute some nurturing, pruning and watering, but ultimately our authentic, core self has a unique agenda of its own. It’s also encouraging to know that – like the root – without pause or haste, that is, with the gentle persistence that balances creative work and surrendering receptivity – we are able to make our way around all obstacles.
Life will always find a way, if we remain true to the unique law of our own being.

how I love to celebrate the under-surface care….
inquiry for today~ what underbelly do you celebrate today?
The majority of us lead quiet, unheralded lives as we pass through this world.
There will most likely be no ticker-tape parades for us, no monuments created in our honor.
But that does not lessen our possible impact, for there are scores of people waiting for someone just like us to come along; people who will appreciate our compassion, our unique talents.
Someone who will live a happier life merely because we took the time to share what we had to give.
Too often we underestimate the power of a touch, a smile, a kind word a listening ear, an honest compliment, or the smallest act of caring, all of which have a potential to turn a life around.
It’s overwhelming to consider the continuous opportunities there are to make our love felt ..
“Her full nature, like that river of which Cyrus broke the strength, spent itself in channels which had no great name on the earth. But the effect of her being on those around her was incalculably diffusive: for the growing good of the world is partly dependent on unhistoric acts; and that things are not so ill with you and me as they might have been is half owing to the number who lived faithfully a hidden life, and rest in unvisited tombs.”
George Eliot’s “Middlemarch” (I wish I read more literature … this is on my reading list)
beautiful humility and trust…..purity of intention….thanks g.f.s…
