For the last couple of weeks, I’ve been reflecting on how life unfolds in its own time. There are no rules or time limits as to when our eyes open up to the next phase of life. Sometimes that phase has already started but we refuse to see it.
I remember reading about a couple in the book The Five Love Languages who had gone through twenty years of marriage before they realized their relationship was loveless. As a married couple they got along very well together but their relationship was mostly business. They related to one another as two acquaintances who were bound together through mutual associations. It wasn’t until they read the book that their eyes were open to the possibilities of what a love relationship could be.

One of the first eye openers or areas of life I never thought of was my inner reality. Whatever is happening on the inside of me is being projected onto the outside world. Life isn’t what happens on the outside and works its way in; it’s the inside seeping out.

Next week I’ll be starting with the root chakra:
