We live in a world full of cycles: the phases of the moon, the seasons, the earth’s rotation and revolution. Our own bodies are constantly going through cycles of growth, death and renewal. Rhythms play throughout our existence.
What is challenging is to identify our own place amongst these universal patterns. We can often feel out of sync with everything around us.
Consider this. Compared to healthy cells, a cancer cell grows in an uncoordinated fashion. It is out of rhythm. When we don’t understand how to participate in the dance of life, we, too, can become the disruptive element – the pathology.
Learning to fall into rhythm, isn’t about conformity. Life is not a line dance. It’s more of an intricate tango where you partner with the Universe to create something of beauty. Your flow finds a way to complement what is already presented to you.

Most of us don’t live in isolation. We are immersed in worlds full of influences that don’t necessarily support our path. How can you focus in the midst of where you are despite the distractions? What if the distractions are people?
This is most difficult when the person may be a loved one. When this is the case, they generally fall into one of three categories:
1) they are unconscious of their effect on you
2) they are fearful of where you are headed
3) they simply don’t care.
In the first case, sometimes people miss the subtle cues given to them. Perhaps you haven’t made your path one of importance. Be explicit and see how they respond.
In the second case, all you can do is speak from the heart. Let them understand that you have no intention of affecting them negatively. You are only honoring what you know to be your purpose and hope that they will respect that for what it is.
The third case is the most difficult but is also a test of how committed you are to the expression of your highest self. Understand that someone who doesn’t honor your path is not showing you love. What they are interested in is a conditional relationship, not love. They may love their idea of who you should be, but they are not loving you as you are. You may have to reevaluate who has consistent access to you.
Regardless of the scenario, you must deal with the situation at hand. Part of being committed to your purpose is clearing the way for it to exist.
When you know in your heart of hearts that there is a particular space you should occupy, understand that nothing can stop you. What is yours is yours. However, you have to firmly believe in that.
Your certainty and focus will conjure up the third element over which you have no control – Divine convergence.
This is where synchronicity happens. Unimagined opportunity appears. Allies come out of seemingly nowhere. Quantum leaps take place. Why? Because the Universe isn’t restricted to lining things up in a linear fashion.
Don’t be discouraged by what seems to be a long or impossible path. Start walking with determination and then allow yourself to be carried by Universal grace.

It’s challenging not to adhere to the culture of conformity that society often presents. From the time we’re young, we’re told that we need to be a certain way in order to fit in. And in order to meet that basic need which is a sense of belonging, we comply.
As a result, we end up subduing or eliminating our most unique characteristics. Our quirks become our shame. We lose confidence in our essence and become a shadow of what we were intended to be.
Are there aspects of yourself you have tucked away that speak directly to who you are? What has “fitting in” cost you?
The only traits you need to “fit in” are those of courtesy and compassion. They give you the ability to accept people as they are and give them room to do the same.
Don’t let the illusion of conformity erase your soulprint, your reason for being.

Things that are rooted stand firm. It doesn’t necessarily mean inflexible, but it does mean tenacity and a surety of knowing. It means being convicted about the truth of who you are and committed to the expression of it.
Experiencing “audacious hope” is a natural byproduct of this intensity of conviction. It describes a bold and unapologetic state.
Ask yourself. Do you ever experience this “audacious hope?” If not, is it possible that you aren’t firmly rooted? How convicted are you about the dreams you hold? Have you committed to your core truths?
