Sometimes we need to stop
and really focus in
on what's important to us.
Focus up close and down deep.
In the place where your soul is in charge.
The place where your longings
to love and be loved,
to create a secure and nourishing life for those you love,
to heal the wounds of the Earth,
to make sure the least of us isn't left behind,
to use your life to make the world a place
where lives are interwoven and peace is possible,
When you have brought your attention
to that place,
"Am I living my life in alignment
with my intention to make my life count?"
How am I using my time?
And equally as important,
how am I acquiring and using my money?
What assumptions about abundance and sufficiency
drive my decisions, and thus my life?
Is there a gap
between my soulful life
and my interaction with money?
Every single day of your life,
you make an impact with your choices
about how you live
and how you allocate your resources:
your financial assets.
If you want to examine those choices
(the ones you usually make on auto-pilot)
and turn your life upside down
in the best kind of way,
read a book by Lynne Twist
The Soul of Money.
If you take its message to heart,
your life and the choices you make will change.
In the distance a hum,
the soft sound of people waking up:
waking up to what is possible for the earth
at this sensitive juncture;
waking up to the call that is coming
from our ancestors and from future generations,
a call to awaken.
