Today | Your Time & Worth

Today: There are the three powerful little ideas wrapped up in my haiku: Time, thought, and your worth.

Time: Do you fully embrace each day? We know we are mortal (and our ego fears it), but, we still tend to live life as though we have an endless supply of days. You have the choice, right now, to make the most of today. Wring every beautiful moment out of it that you can. Because when it’s over, today is not coming around again. Don’t miss out on anything that you could enjoy, embrace, love, or learn right now. Fully immerse yourself in your life. A movie that drives this idea home brilliantly is About Time. If you haven’t seen it, try to.

Thought: Is your mind consumed with your to-do list the second you wake up? Do your thoughts dwell too often on problems, your personal ones and those of the world? Is there any time today reserved for contemplation, introspection, gratitude for the good things you already have in your life? (Gratitude expands abundance.) And perhaps most importantly, mindful intention to create your ideal life? If not, I strongly urge you to make space for those.

Your worth: Do you even believe that you deserve to have good things come your way? You do. If you don’t believe it, long term you have some internal work to do. But in the meantime, I’ll bet you have at least one champion in your life – you know, a person who believes in you, when you can’t or won’t believe in yourself – that loves you enough to talk you through this. Connect with that person, somehow or some way, even if it’s for just a quick “Hi”. Today, surround yourself with your champions. (And don’t forget to express gratitude and take an interest in their lives too. A balanced life involves mutual exchange.)

Today is all we’ve really got. Please, hear the call, pick up the ball, and run as fast as you can towards your happiness.

Today.

Truth | Straight as an arrow, truth seeks its spirit target and won't be denied. | HartHaiku.com

The Truth | Within

The truth is the truth. Constant, consistent, it vibrates to the inner core of our being. We feel the truth. Like the straight arrow, the truth hits the bullseye. It does not take a winding path to some ever shifting mark in the sand.

We are good people and we trust that narratives being told to us are the truth. There is no way to readily prove some of it. But, what we can do is watch for the constancy, the consistency, and most importantly, listen to that inner vibe within us. Then we know where to properly place our trust.

If you are not already doing so, it is time to listen to your inner truth. Spiritual warriors do not put blind faith in the consensual narrative. With patience and perseverance, they observe, analyze, and go inward for the answers.

Look for the truth and be the arrow.

In rune stones, Teiwaz the arrow symbol stands for the spiritual warrior. This is your call to be the spiritual warrior. We need you, because ultimately this current COVID-19 experience will reveal itself to be a battle less about biology and more about the spirit.
