Stepping fully into the light of my being, my purpose yields rewards as well as challenges. In the past when I have made a choice to be my authentic self, it came with a set of challenges. I was met by those around me with cynicism which made me cower and shrivel within myself. When I look back on those times, I realize it was in part due to my young age and in part due to my desire to please everyone. Now, however, I am at a place where I am know who I am and I know what my spiritual purpose is and I have reconnected with the Divine through my Heart. Now, those that have a limited, dogmatic view of life, do not disturb the strength of my connection. Their cynicism is met with understanding, grace and love. Now, I understand that we are all here having a human experience, we are all part of the Divine, we just choose to express it different ways! My connection is strong, permeable and omnipotent. For many years, I searched outside of myself to find where I fit in, where I connected with the whole. I searched in the Holy Books, in places of worship, in the many faiths of this world, new and old. What I discovered, was already present – not outside of myself, but within myself, laying dormant, ready to awaken! I found what I was searching for within my heart, my connection to Source, the Divine. I found the Divine in my Heart!
