Speaking of flying, what is it that you want? I mean, really want???
Answering that question is harder than you might think. That's why I want you to think about it. And, think hard. Because, when you can answer that question, you are finally ready to start the journey of a lifetime...yours.
We only get the life we are living once. You will never be who you are again, even if you exist in another time, another dimension, or another form. And, you only have approximately seven-to-ten decades to work through your karmic debt--which is just a fancy way of saying, repairing your soul.
Some people get less than seven decades on the planet. Some don't even get one. Count yourself lucky if you've had three or more that are uninterrupted. I didn't. But hey, angel-training isn't exactly a cake-walk. That's what I call adversity--angel-training. For, how can we help others to heal, to survive and thrive, if we ourselves do not understand the depth of human existence. Not just the depth, but the scope of it. And by scope, I mean pain.
You'd be amazed at what one can learn about pain in less than four decades. However, what we don't yet know is still greater than what we do. Our physicality is a teaching tool. We can't see beyond our own physical limits, but...we know, somewhere inside, that there is more. Just what that "more" is, well, we have to learn to trust ourselves--our instincts--to really find out. The other thing we have to learn is how to say, "No."
If you see the number "9" frequently, or numbers that add up to "9," that may be one of the signs the Universe is sending...hints, as it were. The number "9" resonates with things like wholeness and completion, but, how do we become whole? How do we make ourselves complete???
"No" is the answer....
As humans, many of us want to fit in, get along, go with the flow, keep the peace. That means we say "yes" when we should unequivocally say "no." Learning to say "no" is one of the most profound lessons we can learn during our time on Earth.
It's good to say "yes" to new opportunities, especially in love. If you find the real deal, always say "yes." Reserve "no" for any moment where others require you to make extreme self-sacrifice in order to remain connected. That's a sign of a vertical relationship. Vertical relationships lead to inequities, or abuse, as well as codependency. Which means, one partner is always required to sacrifice. Always. That's when "no" comes in handy.
So, let me ask you one more time:
What do you really want?
To find out, follow your instincts. When you listen to your gut, you'll be that much closer to knowing what you want. I don't mean a Louis Vuitton bag or a new tattoo. We're not talking material gains here. It's not about convenience-gains either. Soul-gains are perhaps the best way to put it.
Physical life is all about creating art. Whatever your art is, find ways to create it that both benefit you and others at the same time. At least, that's a good place to start. And, make sure you get yourself out in nature more.
I want you to find yourself on the top of a hill one day in the not-so-distant future, listening to the wind. All of a sudden, a rush of flapping wings cuts through the air above you. But instead of seeing a flock of birds, you'll see yourself...flying. Feathered-wings and all.
