Yesterday I trimmed and pruned a house plant cutting away the seemingly lifeless leaves, which had served by giving in all its glory and beauty. Yet its essence still remained; the roots and the aliveness of all that it is.
Let the simplicity of this pruning be a reminder to look at ourselves and discern what needs to be trimmed, abandoned and cast away. Those thoughts, patterns, habits and paradigms that no longer serve our growth as we strive every day to live from our essence of Love.
Continuously we are reborn, renewed and rejuvenated physically as our bodies shed old cells replacing them with new cells on a perpetual basis. Let us mindfully prune our thinking to represent all that is love.
Standing refreshed in the light of love let us move about in this life, this very day, shining and allowing our Divine Brilliance to radiate from our center, our essence, having shed the cloak of negativity, doubt, despair and fear. Live in love, let all else fall away.
