There is a time to “be still”.
A time that requires our engagemen of silence…
A time to “be still” – to define absolutely nothing! To clear the self…cleanse the self.

I thank God that we’re not bound to live by our experiences alone. Our experiences assist us in learning more about ourselves, and the world around us. Furthermore, our experiences & daily encounters shed light on the beliefs & thoughts that we’ve chosen to practice – or, the ones that hold us captive…healthy or unhealthy.
“I am not what happened to me, I am what I choose to become.” ~C.G. Jung
“Turn your wounds into wisdom.” ~Oprah Winfrey
We’re each left with the responsibility of searching deep within ourselves – courageously facing & clearing the impact (debris) from experiences that leave us with a poor/false self-image, or – with feelings of being unloved. This arduous act of self-examination…is self-love. It affirms – we are more than our experiences.
Divine love, the unconditional principal that validates self-awareness & self-acceptance is primary as we seek to define who we are.
Are you defining yourself through your experiences?

As we live our lives, it’s much like finding our rhythm on the Djembe’ (African hand drum). Humbly commit to learning, no comparisons allowed. Participate authentically & trust that you will come into your own – let love, patience, work & time take its course. Your rhythm (just like mine) is essential as we have our being.
Your rhythm is your voice, it is your trust and instinctual timely as you move through each day.
It is up to us to accept our rhythm, as no one else plays that significant role in our lives.
As we learn to honor our rhythm, respect our rhythm – we honor our time & our lives – others will follow our lead.
Have you found your rhythm?
You’re always welcome to leave your thoughts & wisdom. Thank you for your visit. Live wise & live well. ~Storm
