I AM...

I am whatever YOU think I am until YOU get to KNOW me. This is true for everyone else too, of course.. so don't make assumptions about anyone or pass judgment; ask questions. You might just make a new friend.

The journey of water as it flows upon the earth can be a mirror of our own paths through life. Water begins its residence on earth as it falls from the sky or melts from ice and streams down a mountain into a tributary or stream. In the same way, we come into the world and begin our lives on earth. Like a river that flows within the confines of its banks, we are born with certain defining characteristics that govern our identity. We are born in a specific time and place, within a specific family, and with certain gifts and challenges. Within these parameters, we move through life, encountering many twists, turns, and obstacles along the way just as a river flows. Water is a great teacher that shows us how to move through the world with grace, ease, determination, and humility. When a river breaks at a waterfall, it gains energy and moves on, as we encounter our own waterfalls, we may fall hard but we always keep moving on. Water can inspire us to not become rigid with fear or cling to what's familiar. Water is brave and does not waste time clinging to its past, but flows onward without looking back. At the same time, when there is a hole to be filled, water does not run away from it in fear of the dark; instead, water humbly and bravely fills the empty space. In the same way, we can face the dark moments of our life rather than run away from them. Eventually, a river will empty into the sea. Water does not hold back from joining with a larger body, nor does it fear a loss of identity or control. It gracefully and humbly tumbles into the vastness by contributing its energy and merging without resistance. Each time we move beyond our individual egos to become part of something bigger, we can try our best to follow the lead of the river.


I HAVE BEEN GIVEN THE ''PERSONAL" POWER. Now that I am half through with my education I now understand what personal power means. My personal power isn't overbearing nor meek, I have a clear sense of my strength and the impact I have on others. This actually enables us to be more sensitive. This personal power is what permits me to work on behalf of my dreams and desires. It allows me to realize that I am worthy and deserve to be heard. I know there is no reason to be afraid or ashamed of fully owning my power. I know that I have to breathe this power into every part of my body. Visualize a bright yellow sun, allow its heat to melt any tension, and let its light dissolve anydarkness or heaviness. I have to nurture my personal power, honor my dreams and desires, make concrete plans to manifest them in the world. I know that I deserve to have my dreams come true and that I have been given the power to get started.
