Here’s A Thought…

What others are doing around you seems very important when you have not found your own steadiness. You want to say to them, “Don’t rock my boat! If you rock my boat, I can’t be steady.” But the truth of it is, you’re the only boat-rocker in your world. Only you can rock your boat.

This quote comes from Abraham-Hicks Publications. It is dated February 1, 2014.

My own sweet Soul often reminds me “You are doing this to yourself, Catherine Ann. This is not coming from outside you. You are doing this to yourself by the way you are responding to these circumstances.”

Enough said? Just think about it πŸ’«πŸ’–


The Divine Thread

The title of this blog “the divine thread” has never occurred to me in those words until this morning. I responded to a comment left by a reader:

I can only be who I am and write from my heart. The fact that Β it blesses others is the Divine Thread that runs through all of life.

This is why I can never take full credit for what I write…I can only surrender to the Divine within and all around me. Then I flow in harmony with life, with love, with All That Is.

May you be blessed today dear hearts for you are loved.

True Happiness

True Happiness is found in the ability to give and receive love.

The ability to give and receive love is a Divine gift. It transcends our humanity and defies definition.

It is cultivated in the recesses of the Soul, requiring silence, awareness, and mindful presence.

When experienced, it changes everything and life becomes a divinely human journey.

May you be so blessed today, dear hearts.

True Friends Are The Best

I am retired now so I don’t think much about “going on vacation” because my life feels like a vacation. This week I arranged to see friends out of town, knowing that this heart of mine needed time with “my girls.”

These are women I know well, two of them since we were children. It is a joy to have friendships that endure and come to feel more like family than friends.

These few days have been exactly what I had hoped. Love and laughter has been flowing like the waters of a beautiful fountain. No need to throw coins in and make wishes on this trip! All my wishes have been fulfilled simply by giving myself the gift of being with people who love me unconditionally and who let me love them back.

Each of us is unique, quite different from one another. In my mind and heart we are like a fragrant bouquet of my favorite flowers….and we are so funny! Just ask us and we will gladly tell you what a kick we get out of ourselves!

Yep, nothing like spending time with sister-friends! 😍 May each of you be so abundantly blessed.
