Reflections of The Day

By Dayvid Clarkson

Sometimes you need to be alone, not to be lonely, but to enjoy a little free time just being yourself and finding your way. In other words, the moments you feel lonely are the moments you may most need to be by yourself.


This is one of lifeís cruelest ironies.


We need solitude because when weíre alone weíre detached from obligations, we donít need to put on a show, and we can hear our own thoughts and feel what our intuition is telling us. And the truth is, throughout your life, there will be times when the world gets real quiet and the only thing left is the beat of your own heart. So youíd better learn the sound of it, otherwise, youíll never understand what itís telling you.


Not until you are lost in this world can you begin to find your best path. Realizing you are lost is the first step to living the life you want. The second step is leaving the life you donít want. Making a big life change is pretty scary. But you know whatís even scarier? Regret.


I can tell you from my own life experience that Iíve found love, lost it, found it, lost it and then I found it once again. But each time what I found was more incredible than the last. So remember that everyone suffers in life at some point. Everyone feels lost sometimes.


The key is using your experiences to grow. When you apply what youíre learning to your future choices and actions, you move forward not backward. You become stronger and wiser. Itís not easy, but itís worth it in the end.


And remember. every new day is a gift, a new beginning, a chance to try and begin again.

I whisper to the Four Winds, ďGuide me well my Brothers and Sisters as I journey through the night sky. Lead me to the mirrored lake that I may see my true Spirit. Stir the embers of my Soul that I may share the flame of compassion and kindness wherever I sojourn. Reveal the quiet reverie of old lessons and let me tarry there for a while. Restore the power that I freely gave away this day so upon my awakening, I can continue to be of service. I am grateful for your directions.Ē
Sleep well, dream deep my Friends.

On a cold crisp night, I look to the stars, even in the dark, you can see the remnants of navy blue. The crystalline stars seem to define Father Sky as Grand Mother Moon has yet to make her entrance. Contemplating time, it seems we never have enough, always governed by the clock. What if we understood that we are eternal, that we truly have all the time we require? No time during your past was wasted. This journey is like reading a book, once read another book will appear. If we could learn to read and enjoy without the compulsion to skip over parts and read the last chapter to see how it ends. Enjoy each chapter and relish the storyline.
Sleep well, dream deep my Friends.
