We lovingly invite you to enjoy this personal blog post by Daniel Roquéo, with the title “I am grateful for who I am and where I am”
I am grateful for who I am and where I am
I am in a space of rebirth right now. Who I used to be is dissolving and a new version of who I am is emerging. Where I used to be is about to be no more and a new where I am is coming forward. For all of this I am grateful.
I am grateful even though I experience a lot of confusion, where I cannot clearly see where I am going. Despite the fact that I am at times too tired from this process, to even focus my thinking. Even in meditation I find peace and stillness far away.
The thing is, and the thing that I am most grateful for is that despite the non-stillness within me, I have peace. Even though there are so many thoughts running through my mind, even though I seem to lack focus – my vibration is high.
A new me is emerging
I have been in such spaces before where transformation has been so overwhelming that I have lost much of my connection with the Divine. Where I have lost my anchoring in the nowness of this moment. This has always resulted in me becoming irritable and impatient. This time it is not so.
Now, although not really present, I am still anchored in the Holy Now. This time, although being drawn to the surface mind, I still experience joy, and peace and Love. I am aware of the thoughts that the ego give rise to and I seem not to be able to consciously unidentify with them. Yet, obviously I am not attached to them as I am not being pulled in by the opinions and judgments of the ego.
Evolution and transformation, apparently is and has taken place. Really without my realizing it. It is truly a blessing to be awakening.
I love being on this path. I love surrendering to and allowing the new, the greater and the grander to emerge. While the old, the small and the limited dissolves.
I am being pulled by my vision
There is a statement: pain pushes us until a vision begins to pull us.
Am I grateful for the vision that is pulling me? Yes. Am I amazed by how I am being pulled, oftentimes without my conscious awareness of the steps I am taking, of the progress I am making? Yes, yes, and yes.
I have been on this path now for a number of years. Little did I know, when I set out, where I would be guided to go. I have had my vision/intention for some years, but I could not have fathomed where it would lead me. I am still surprised by all the good and all the opportunities that keep flowing into my life. All of the time.
God truly is always for me, never against me. All truly is working for my good – even when my surface mind is too blind to see it.
It all starts with a desire and an intention
The sacred laws are always at work. God is forever for me seeking to guide and lead me toward my Highest Self. This I know now. I have increasingly come to realize this over the course of the last few years. Yet, even before I truly knew this, I was being guided and led by it.
But it all started with my being guided to setting a vision and intention for my life. It began with my seeking freedom which eventually evolved to seeking to be an instrument of God, to be in the service of God for the benefit of humanity. This along with seeking to be an ever increasing evermore powerful conduit for God’s Love & Light on the planet – is the vision that has been pulling me for some years now.
Desire and intention are the two most powerful creative agents there are. They are the fundament of all creation. Knowing what our heart’s desire is, and setting the intention to move in that direction. That is where it all starts. It is this vibration of both knowing the What and that it has already been given, that sets the sacred laws to work, truly in our favor.
Thank you God, for guiding me to who I am and where I am
I cannot really begin to describe the gratitude I feel for who I am, where I am and for what my life has become to be about. I am so grateful for the shifts and the growth that is happening within me. Oftentimes without me being aware of it.
I am so thankful for the vision I have caught, for the mission I have been given and for the guidance I receive that moves me forward. Moment by moment.
Who I am today, is miles away from who I used to be only a couple of years ago. How I operate today are so different from how I used to operate. The choices that I make today (including the choiceless choices) are so much higher today than before.
Where fear, worry and doubt used to run me, now I am increasingly run by joy, Love, inspiration. In fact, just the other day I tried to think of the last time I experienced fear – and I couldn’t. I know there have been moments where I have become aware of fearful thoughts running through my mind, but I have not been attached or identified with them. They have simply passed by like clouds in the sky.
Instead, peace and joy and trust is now the order of my day.
Life truly is an adventure
Life, truly is a magical adventure. A continuous venture from the known into the unknown. A forever releasing of the old that the new may emerge. I think I have always perceived life in this way, but what has shifted within me these last few years, that I am now very aware of, is that now I am full of anticipation as to what the next good thing will be to flows into my life.
That God is forever for me never against me is alive and real within me. I know that all working for my good. And so Life a journey into the forever expanding good. As I have come to realize this, I have grown more and more excited about Life, about where I am and where I am going.
It is like I can’t wait to find out what good is about to enter into my life. What good beyond what I can imagine lies beyond what I can see and perceive? This is an adventure. This is my adventure.
And I am so grateful to God for having lead and guided me to where I am. I am also grateful to myself, for having done the inner work necessary to make myself open and available to be guided to this place and space. I Love Life in a way that I have never Loved Life ever before.
Yet I know, that where I am and who I am, is only the beginning. Boy am I looking forward to finding out the rest.
