Finishing the Deepak Chopra 21 Day Meditation Challenge was a breeze…kinda. Since beginning this spiritual journey, I’ve accepted a few challenges, set a few goals and explored a variety of methods to learn self love. The road hasn’t always been smooth. Hell, to tell you the truth, I have screwed the pooch royally more than once. But as MC Hammer would say, “It’s all good.”
What’s good about it? Making changes in my life doesn’t mean I’ve become Divine. It doesn’t mean I have all of the answers. What is does mean is that I’ve discovered new ways to manage my stress and explore my spirituality.
“You are altogether beautiful, my love; there is no flaw in you.” Song of Solomon 4:7
This is how I speak to myself now. With words of love, not words of self derision or despair. I’ve learned to love myself even when I’m the cause of chaos in my life. It’s all good because no matter what I’ve done or what someone else has done that affects me, in the center of it all is that spark of light my Creator placed inside my heart. No one, not even me, can douse that flame. Isn’t that awesome?
The soundtrack of my spiritual journey is filled with guided meditations, binaurals, water sounds and throat singing. Listening to loving voices with good intentions helps me to center myself on this raft and float down this river of Life. If nothing else, meditation makes me feel good. That’s what it’s all about, right? Feeling good. Loving Life. Enjoying my time on Earth.
