Denise’s Daring Daydreams for 04/16/15


Before Eckhart Tolle wrote A New Earth he put some writing into our world called The Power of Now.  One of the great quotes from that writing is, “Realize deeply that the present moment is all you have. Make the NOW the primary focus of your life.”   So here comes the 35,000 foot question, asked by Ryan Gill on Wednesday evening.  How do we dream our dreams and create our future lives and remain in the present moment?  That one question prompted one of the best discussions we have had thus far during our Wednesday evening class, “Breaking the Habit of Being Yourself.”   The only way to ever get to your dream is to live each moment in the present.  And I know – some of you are saying that is so confusing.   

Let me see if I can give a bit of clarity and we will attempt to give more on Sunday morning.  As I dream and vision the life I would love to live, I then begin to trust Holy Spirit to assist me in bridging the gap between today andtomorrow; tomorrow and next week; next week and next month; etc.  The only way I can move along with the flow of Spirit is by being in the present moment.  In each of our lives there are goals set.  The difference in living a quantum life is the trust factor. I match my personal vibration to my dream and then I trust Spirit to do the rest.  Do I trust Holy Spirit to bring it to me in such a way that I will be surprised?  And am I going to be wide awake enough to see each step along the way?  And am I open to the change that each step will bring? 

In A New Earth, Eckhart states, “Always say “yes” to the present moment. What could be more futile, more insane, than to create inner resistance to what already is? What could be more insane than to oppose life itself, which is now and always now? Surrender to what is. Say “yes” to life — and see how life suddenly starts working for you rather than against you.”   So my question for you is this, as you create the vision for your life – are you willing to trust Holy Spirit to lead you?  If you work with the present moment and not against it, believing that you chose this exact moment as a stepping stone toward your next right and perfect experience – you just may begin to experience how life begins to work with you and for you – not against you.  Remember our Purple Bracelets?  Do you still have yours?  I believe there are still some in the work room to be purchased if you need a reminder……  “Spirit is working it out.”
