Tune into this day with Lessons in the Key of Today for Wednesday August 9th, 2017:
To every thing there is a season,
And a time to every purpose under heaven:
A time to be born, and a time to die
A time to plant, a time to reap that which is planted
A time to kill, and a time to heal
A time to break down, and a time to build up
A time to weep, and a time to laugh
A time to mourn, and a time to dance
A time to cast away stones
A time to gather stones together
A time to embrace
A time to refrain from embracing
A time to get, and a time to lose
A time to keep, and a time to cast away
A time to rend, and a time to sew
A time to keep silence, and a time to speak
A time to love, and a time to hate
A time of war, and a time of peace
–The Book of Ecclesiastes
Everything has a purpose and a season.
All that you have experienced has a purpose. There are no wasted moments. All the learning, the joys and the sorrows, all lead to one place… the place you are now. When something leaves, or you say goodbye and close the door, it only means that the portion and space in your life it occupied is no longer needed nor serving its purpose. There are no wasted seasons or lessons.
I wonder… what have you learned thus far in your life? What skills have you gained? What talents have you developed through perseverance and pressure? What wisdom have you gleaned from the journey up until now? I imagine it to be quite a plentiful answer.
So you can imagine also, that the next part of the journey has some building blocks or stepping stones as well. You will be honing your craft, developing your skills and making more memories. You may even be strengthening your intuition, that oft underused muscle of saving grace. Perhaps you even have a super power that will make itself known more than ever before, begging you to uncover and expose it to the world, for good.
And then, there is the wisdom born of experience, isn’t there? That illusive treasure that Life offers only in the crucible, or the briar patch. I would endeavor to propose that the path you have walked thus far has now strengthened, emboldened and equipped you for the next portion of the journey. And it is going to be expansive… and fun.
Today’s energy has some twists and turns in it, but may I suggest listening to your gut? Your intuition will guide you like a gracious and compassionate friend, so give it attention and care. Who knows, you may hear something you have been wanting to hear for a very long time. Something profound and all about how you have something the world needs desperately.
And only you can offer it.
Today’s triad: Develop your skills and talents. Lessons bring growth and wisdom. Trust your intuition and the purpose of all things.
