Everything we have ever done, every word, every thought and every breath, has brought us to this moment. Each of us has created this moment by the choices we have made.

Yesterday I watched a flock of geese flying across the sky. I looked at that “V” shape and at the lead bird and thought – “Wow, that’s me, flying into my future – and people are willing to follow – and they’ve been doing it for the past 20 years!!”

I felt overwhelmed with gratitude. Suddenly I remembered a treasure map I did back in the early ‘80’s on which I pasted a cemetery head stone that read “Her life was better than most people’s fantasies.” Because of the people in my experience, those that I have classified as positive and negative, I have been able to live my life in an awesome way, and done things people have only dreamed about. And it’s not over yet!!

Each of us influences people, known and unknown, with the way we live our lives. Just think, right in this moment while you are reading, you are perched on the edge of your future and there are people willing to follow you into that future, confident that you know what you’re doing! Seems like a big responsibility, eh!?

It’s not really – as we live in integrity with compassion and love, invoking as much joy as possible, we can be assured that as we lift our consciousness we lift the consciousness of the people in our circle of influence, and many, many more.

We can remember we are not in this life alone … no matter what is happening, not only do we have friends and family (of birth or choice) to help us, but there is an Infinitely Intelligent Essence within us, that will nurture and guide us along our Path, if we let it. Why let our lives be a struggle? We don’t have to do it all ourselves.

We can remember that when we are ready the next teacher will appear. Maybe that teacher will be a person, maybe an experience. We can move forward along our Path letting go of the old adage “no pain, no gain.”

We can remember that the good we do, never goes unacknowledged or unrewarded. We don’t need to look for it --this is karma – or the Law of Cause and Effect.

The author Clarissa Pinkola Estes wrote: “Anything you do from the soulful self will help lighten the burdens of the world. Anything. You have no idea what the smallest word, the tiniest generosity can cause to be set in motion. Be outrageous in forgiving. Be dramatic in reconciling. . . Be off the charts in kindness..... Mastery is in increments, not in leaps. Be brave, be fierce, be visionary. Mend the parts of the world that are "within your reach." To live this way is the most dramatic gift you can ever give to the world. Consider yourselves assigned.

I thank you for being a part of this online Spiritual Community. Know I am here for you in Spirit, always, in all ways.

We are all expressions of the One Life manifesting infinite possibilities. All spiritual beings having a spiritual experience we are calling being human.

As a conscious expression I let myself take on the role of leadership with joy and grace, and I rejoice as I join others doing so as well. We are leading ourselves into our futures, becoming more and more aware of how powerful we are.

I declare I am ready to life a Life Magnificent. I am willing to be a greater expression than I already am. I surrender all sense of littleness, and welcome my work in this world. I know that though it seems like I am doing it alone, in Truth, I am supported by Infinite Intelligence in all Its many forms. I am loved and loving. I am healthy and express health–giving thoughts. I declare that everything I am and everything I do is for the highest and best good of all. God as me, in me, does great work, just as It does in everyone.

I am so grateful to be a conscious expression of The Divine. And so it is.
