The will to live - day 6
"Blessed is the man who walks not in the counsel of the ungodly, nor stands in the path of sinners, nor sits in the seat of the scornful; but his delight is in the law of the Lord, and in his law he meditates day and night.He shall be like a tree planted by the rivers of water, that brings forth its fruit in its season, whose leaf also shall not wither; and whatever he does shall prosper."
Psalms: 1-3 NKJV
Another day another lesson, right? A good friend once told me that water holds all the memories of life. Today, I thought about that profound statement as I looked out into the Pacific Ocean. All of the memories from the beginning of time, live in water. The water we drink, the water we bathe in, the water that covers this earth, the water in the air, the water that makes up our bodies; it’s all made up of memories; seemingly, that’s all we are.
Humans are computers full of stored memories. Sometimes we try to relive those old memories in new spaces; most times those old memories pollute our new spaces. Stick with me here! The thing about water is that it forms to its environment, it never changes what it IS, it only changes how it moves and exist in the space that it’s currently in. The water’s properties will always be its properties; two hydrogen and one oxygen. No matter if it was still at one point, wasted on the floor, neglected with trash constantly being thrown in it, it STILL remained WATER. If properly treated and given a clear and clean environment, the same water that was trashed can now nourish you directly. In this same way, the same “problems” that were sent to pollute your life force are memories for your story---they don’t have to be the poison to your purpose. You can choose your #WillToLive! You CAN choose to purify your life source and nourish this world with your gift. We don’t have to live in a dirty environment. We don't have to be dependent on someone or something to get us our of dark spaces. Let us pick up our bed and WALK!
God thank you for using Mother Earth elements to teach me more about my existence. I know that I haven’t given myself a fair shot at healing with you, but today, I make the conscious decision to start the purification process of my vessel. You have graced me with another opportunity to TRY so I will TRY my best to become clear as water so that you can SHINE through me. Like water, I desire to keep my posture no matter what my environment may be.
To my life force, my maker, my provider, my purifier, my peace…Thank you for the lessons of life. Thank you for meeting me where I need you most. Thank you for my #WillToLive
