Gifts of Life
Updated: May 11, 2020
From time to time the world will deliver unexpected exchanges, gifts, surprises, and relationships we believe we are undeserving of. Everyone of these have their purpose to the receiver and giver. Its always a two-way street even if it doesn’t appear apparent at the moment. The receiver and giver will know the purpose in their own time. We just need to be open in understanding that the universe is responding to what is needed, and for each of us it is different.
There are times in our lives where strangers will make the greater impact in our lives aside from our parents. During these times of unexpected exchanges, we may keep ourselves at bay, at distance from exploring some of the greater moments life has to offer. Those of us who forge in big city life, tend to a bit busy to see these gifts or have become a bit hard due to the harsh environment and past relationships, both friendships and romantic. We retreat into our safe spaces shielding our hearts and emotions.
The reasons could be many. Some of which we may be aware of; others we are not. They could be brought upon our past, maybe even a time before we can remember, buried deep in our subconscious.
A familiar one is guilt, not knowing if we should or have to reciprocate or that we could or wish to. We could feel a sense of commitment to the other. As if we owe the individual something for the gift bestowed upon us.
This is a vast world full of endless possibilities and its easier to dismiss or rule out gifts if we feel we are underserving of them. It’s not hard to distinguish whether these gifts are genuine or not. Our instincts are amazing; I don’t believe we use them enough so they develop enhancing our lives or learn to listen properly. Internal intent is the most powerful energy with in our grasp, which is felt and seen.
Actions have a way of speaking louder than words. We will be able to feel and understand a person intent if we are in tune. This allows us to separate fact from fiction and detect If we should accept the gifts or believe they will cause us harm. We can not base our decision on fear, because fear is the crippling power that will keep us living without ever achieving our greatest potential in life. Its quite alright to have fear, its part of our hard wire. Some of us work through it as a natural part of life as others allow it to encage them.
The exchanges of life, familiar and unfamiliar will be the building blocks of our life’s foundation. denying life, is denying living.
To be continued; maybe.
