I am enough. We are enough.
I am enough and I always have been. I am whole & I am part of your whole. I am complete. I am perfect.
I have experienced how easy it can be to forget this truth. Time and time again. I forget that I’m connected to the intelligent ebb & flow of life. I forget that my essence is pure. I forget that within me, God can be found.
I write it down, I recite it, I post in the bathroom… I surround myself in this truth and I plunge into this reality. Just as linguists claim it to easier to learn a language when you are fully immersed in the culture, the people, & the day-to-day living experience, so it is also true for your spiritual evolution. You could move to Italy to learn Italian and just as easily move within to learn… well everything.
I am whole. I am complete. I am everything. I am everything I need.
We live our lives in search. In pursuit. In hopes of a better… a better tomorrow, a better job, a better spouse… sometimes better children. And our prayers are for pleas of help and assistance to bring us that in which we truly believe will bring brilliant peace and happiness, if only we are able to obtain it.
Years of awareness and practice going within has taught me a new language with new vocabulary that is full of yesses and thank-yous. Instead of the plea to the great unknown to “take me there”, it has become, “bring me here”.
Bring me HERE. Now. To the stuff that is happening NOW! To the reality I created. To the reality I am creating. Bring me here. Be here now Elissa.
Enough means that I, you, we, are deserving of love. We are deserving of a constant in-flow and out-flow of compassionate beautiful love. I accept that I am deserving of all things beautiful, abundant, & good because I exist. I am enough because I am. In this moment I choose to embrace life, honoring my essential self. Honoring my kindness, my gentleness, my service, my full potential.
I am a part of everything around me as much as it is a part of me. I serve and I love passionately as I trust in the unfolding of my dreams. My life, my home, my surroundings are perfect, they are enough, simply because they are.
As I continue to learn this language of love I trust that my fears are the places within me that await my love. They do not define me, but rather they teach me and guide me into a more compassionate inner narrative so that I can show up and serve.
Enough is enough… the time is now.
I reach beyond my limiting beliefs and accept myself totally.
