Deep peace of the quiet earth to you.

Discomfort--physical, mental, emotional, or situational is something we all do our best to avoid. Right? Human nature. But some discomforts remain--discomfort with one's body; unease around a certain social situation; frustration in the acquiring of some skill or another. We spend so much energy either avoiding (read: ignoring/distracting) those feelings or berating ourselves for having them in the first place ("I should be a better person...etc").

 

First of all...that *should* thing? Well, that's a subject for another post; short answer, stop the should-ing. But most importantly--you've got to let those discomforts in. Right??

You don't need a reason, spoken or unspoken, to say no. 

 

When you were born, you reserved the Divine-given right of refusal--not for life and its experiences--don't mistake me, but for anything that compromised your integrity, your truth, your beauty, your expression, or your values.

You are here to challenge the system--the one put in place around you. When you lead from instinct, from compassionate heart, you will always know when the answer is an echoing, resounding, undeniable yes.
