Reflection on Well-Being
I am the happiest I've been in awhile. I feel healthy: been listening to my body daily, moving it when it needs to be moved, resting it when it needs to be rested. I've been eating as healthy as I can without losing enjoyment: drinking plenty of water and white moonlight, jasmine green, and ti guan yin tea and bathing with all natural soap and shampoo that smells amazing. I've been listening to healing music and allowing it to fill my soul with gratitude to which I express to the kindest, most loving Being I know. I've been writing in my journal and allowing my creativity to renew my perspective of this world. I've been realizing that I am not without fault and have been meditating on my imperfections to develop humility. I've been realizing that I am receiving more from the world than I am giving, so I am motivated to give as much as I can. I'm understanding that the foundation of Christ's message is not fear, guilt and punishment, but love and truth. (Fear, guilt and punishment only come from a place where God is not welcome.) It is to acknowledge what in us is shutting out God, to be honest about these faults of ours, these places where we have closed the door to Jesus, and to return ourselves to Christ again and again because there is this need for Christ within us. Everywhere we go, God's presence is there.
