I take that whole govern yourself accordingly shit seriously.
I know that my present moment responses will directly affect my future…
I move slower than my patience can handle sometimes – but I see the lesson in this too; I am building patience muscle.
My slow movement is so that I can give myself time to think and feel and then move deeper than those thoughts and feelings because inspired action infused with love comes from somewhere deeper- somewhere more in line with who God created us to be.
I know that it will get easier and more automatic to respond from a higher vibration place no matter who or what I encounter.
Govern yourself accordingly Tiffany and remember you are supported.
Connected and protected
For the sake of my own elevation, and the elevation of all life, I shall seek to do no harm to myself and others.
-Niyama of Harmlessness
I found forever in the forest
Still I sat as winged creatures whizzed by leaving behind vibrations in the small bones of my ears
Still I sat as the leaves on trees swayed to the wind’s beat
Still I sat as the ants worked on in summer’s heat
Still I sat
And in the stillness forever appeared
Inside my consciousness
