"Diamonds in the Rough"

I once heard a commercial with the following line:
“The precision of the cut is what brings out the greatest beauty of the diamond.”

We are all ‘diamonds in the rough’ if you will, allowing God/Spirit/Infinite Love to sculpt our lives and our spirits to bring out the greatest beauty that Infinite Love can express in each of us. What a wonderful thing to know that all of the things we think seem to take forever, and so we become impatient, are done that way so that the precision can be maintained, thus revealing our greatest beauty hidden within. This point of view can give Being present a whole new light for when we love ourselves and others enough to show up fully in our true Presence, we share the greatest gift of ALL. This beautifully sculpted Being.

Watching a documentary on how diamonds are formed in the earth and how, being the clearest and strongest element on the planet the only thing that can cut a diamond is another diamond, and thus shape it, I thought about the phrase ‘diamond in the rough’ and how there are many references to people as just that. Having heard the reference of crystals and ‘Christed being’, and being the curious kid I am, I looked up the word diamond in the dictionary to see where it came from or what it meant. The origin actually mentions that the word comes from the Greek term adamas (“a human being”). Yes, really. So of course this clears up my perceptions of ‘life on earth’ as each of us is here to help sculpt each other ‘with precision’ so that our greatest, clearest Being can be expressed. Having been blessed with learning and doing ‘subtle energy work’, I feel so grateful for each ‘diamond/spirit’ I work with, being well aware of the mutual and yet individual sculpting we are participating in.
All of our experiences help to shape us into a Being that reflects our true inner beauty, our true infinite Spirit, which is Love and Light.

Thanks to all of my fellow ‘diamonds in the rough’. You are truly beautiful in every way.

The Journey and Joy of Being

When the mind is allowed to be at peace and the heart is allowed to heal and open to its true state of joy, spirit flows easily through our lives, expressing ecstatically its true Being here. It may take some practice to quiet the mind, but if we can simply allow the silence and stillness for a bit, letting all mental debris float effortlessly to the surface and gently back into our natural flow, we find ourselves in a clearer state of true awareness than we've ever known. From this place of simply Being, we begin to remember our true selves, seeing that we are infinite Love and Light itself. Our 'journey' here is simply Being. Anything our spirit feels inspired to Be.

My spirit is here to help awaken the Light of peace within, so that you may begin to heal your heart and open it to the joyful essence that you truly are.
