Open Your Gifts

When we arrive here in this lovely world, our hearts are open, we love easily and simply. Our minds are open, we see the truth in the words and the eyes of those around us. Our souls are open and readily bond with the love that others hold us in.

That is our perfect state; open. On occasion, if we by chance find ourselves closed up a little, it's important to remember how we truly are. A reflection of the divine.

      You are so right Marty, it does not have to be lost. We can keep our lives open and full of the quality of being curious. The world is a big and beautiful place full of fun and adventure just waiting for us to get up and go discover it. 🙂

      Hi Marcus, thank you for your kind words. You are so right, being open to the blessings of the world is a much better way to live than being closed off in fear and anger. 🙂

      Thank you Leslie. I know that sometimes I have been told that there is no reason to use 85 words when 3 will do. Thank you for the encouragement 🙂

    Thanks Michael for sharing this fun and powerful post.
    We tend to think that this kind of exercises are useless because we think we know why we like ourselves.
    Taking responsibility is about knowing our strengths and how to improve our weaknesses, leaning to receive and feeling ok with it!

      Thank you Patricia 🙂 You’re right, it is absolutely our responsibility to know our strengths and take responsibility for our own lives. We are the experts in that and no one else knows us better than we do.

      Hi Donna,

      True enough, I see that sometimes I have been a bit over-wordy in my writing. Not too bad, but sometimes, I just want to put the idea down into a few words; or I guess the perfect amount of words. thank you for your kindness and your kind words. 🙂

    Beautiful post, Michael. I believe the reason we are so open when we first arrive is because we haven’t forgotten who we really are. How soon we forget as we intermingle with other forgetful spiritual beings who have come here to supposedly enjoy a physical experience.

      Thank you Steve. You are so right, we are open when we arrive, then we get taught stuff which is off the track a bit and start believing those other not-quite-so-true things. Good thing we have wayshowers along the path. 🙂

      Thank you Jim. It is exactly what life is all about. I think the world turns on love. And it is so worth it everyday to be alive and enjoy that reality. 🙂

    Hey Micheal… as they say Short and Sweet… you could not sum it up any better to make it real… “A reflection of the divine” it is a wonderful knowing and once we are able to experience it once more.. our world will be open up to what we always strive to achieve… Balance.. balance with our self, and God within.
    Thanks for taking timeto share all this will every one Michael…

      Thank you Nick. So true, sometimes the most information comes in the shortest amount of words. Balanced is absolutely the best way to be, inside our hearts and our minds. Safe and secure in the Divine. Thank you my friend, have a wonderful day today. 🙂

    Hi Michael,

    I definitely agree with you, I think when were younger we look at things so differently and are open to so many more different things, we see things differently, perceive things a totally different way and then later in life we seem to forget to be open to new things because in the end that’s what could make you happiest.

    Thank you, Jessica.

      Hi Jessica,

      There are a lot of things we do learn as we are growing up that are so important to have a great life. And some we learn just as well, but are so not important or even helpful. It is good to remember that part of us that keeps us integrates with our spiritual selves.

    It’s so true. As children, we’re full of wonder, open to new experiences, loving others and our world. Life goes on, and we can become weary. Weariness can turn to cynicism and bitterness if we’re not careful. If we can retain a Beginner’s Mind, we will continue to love the life we’ve been given.

      We are so open as children, so willing to see things as they really are. And everything is beautiful. I do understand about that cynicism and bitterness, and it is so not a way to live a life of love.

    1. Michael

      I 100 percent agree, life is way much better when we are open to the kindness of the world. It is one of those ideas that simply works. 🙂

    Open is our natural state of life, but sometimes I get hurt so much by other people being mean

    1. Michael

      In all truth, Debra, you have no reason to accept their meanness into your life, you can be open to their true spirit which is always love.
