Hello My Lovelies,
As I was driving home just now I noticed a bumper sticker on the car in front of me that said, “Namaste.” For those who are unsure what namaste means, basically put it means, “The Divine within me recognizes the Divine within you.” As I drove past the car I looked at the driver, I immediately noticed she was smoking a cigarette to which she then took a drink of a pepsi. I thought to myself, “How ironic. This woman has a sticker that says how she not only recognizes the Divine within you but also herself, and yet she is poisoning her body temple.”
I am in no way aiming to be judgemental, it was simply God reminding me to BE 100%. What I mean by being 100% is living true to the thoughts we think, the words we speak, and the actions we take. To be living life with my thoughts, words, and actions all in harmony. It also can mean to enter fully into each moment. To be 100% present living NOW, the only moment we will ever have.
In order to live a joy-full, purpose-full life we must be 100% with what we think, say, and do. For instance, seeing as I am a personal trainer, I know in my heart and from all the research ever, that vegetables and fruits are beneficial for my body temple. I then counsel my clients to eat fruits and veggies, but then do not eat them myself. I am not being 100% am I? I am disregarding the knowledge I know in my heart is correct. Another example would be for me to tell somebody to be kind and express Love and then go out and judge somebody for smoking a cigarette and drinking a pepsi 😉
Not only does this cause others to lose respect for us because we are not practicing what we preach, but more importantly we feel guilty because we override what we feel and know is right in our hearts.
I’ve never read the Four Agreements, but from what I know about it, I feel this post goes along the same lines. When we are speaking and acting from our deepest Truth, from the wisdom that resides within all of us, we feel alive. When we live in accordance with our deepest Truth, life is purpose-full! Our minds are no longer in battle with our hearts, our hearts now directs where our minds will go. We gain awareness of if a thought is in harmony with our deepest Truth or in dis-harmony.
So ultimately what I want to say to you, and in doing so, to myself, is BE 100%. Why waste time not enveloped in this present moment? You only have right now to express your gifts! And now…and now…and now! Have you read these words with full presence or have you been dazing off thinking of something while your subconscious scanned these words? BE 100%! Speak the words of your heart even if they might upset others. Don’t force others to listen, nor force your opinion, but speak with an open heart full of Love. Act with your deepest integrity! When you drink your water…DRINK YOUR WATER!! That is truly the first and last sip of water you will ever has as the individual you are NOW!
We are ever-changing, Divine incarnations of Love! Experience this world NOW because it will never be the same. BE 100% in this moment, BE 100% at a business meeting, BE 100% in conversations with a friend, BE 100% while taking a walk, BE 100% in the embrace of your child, BE 100% as you cry hysterically, BE 100% in the ocean of a strawberry, BE 100% when you dance in the ecstasy of sex, BE 100% because if you’re not life will keep passing you by. BE in life. BE in Love. BE here now!
And while you are here, live from your deepest heart. Give your deepest gifts to the world. Present them on the Divine platter of your words, actions, and through your Presence. BE 100% with your life!
All My Love,
