Quado's Garden: Unfold to Each Other ~ Power Animal of the Week: Lion & Leopard
- "Release your plans, fantasies and expectations with the dawn..." This does not imply that planning and holding to what we can clearly see within us to manifest outwardly is not apart of our growth and life. Rather this emphasizes, especially with the relationships we have with others (and let us also be conscious that this speaks of a relationship with ourselves, with Nature, with Spirit for each are intimately linked and apart of the other), to let go of what how we think it "should" take place or turn out to be. At times we have very unknowingly and unintentionally attempted to make a relationship or other person into who we would hope or desire them to be. Let go of those types of expectations and know that each of us are as we are in this moment. As the message below begins "Today is as it is". Allow the day, allow your Self (in all of your sublime Divine Beauty and Essence), allow our Earth and allow others to be who they are and each develop in our own Authentic Genuine Way. A patient and loving unfolding to one another, to YOU, to Spirit, to the Earth.Change does occur and we are moving in and through deep, powerful and wonderful change. This is a change which occurs naturally and through the choices we make as we open and bloom to the Divine Within us and the Divine Manifestations around us. There are the examples within us and the examples that Our Beloved Earth provides especially with flowers. Two buds that begin to grow and slowly unfurl, unfold and bloom together. Each being their Divine Self. You can speak and live within your integrity and with love that does come from the very core or center of our Being.A rose, as it blooms within a garden, can have a multitude of colors, and each of them have their own intrinsic beauty, gifts, insights and wonders. Love unconditionally, be your Self and Know that each relationship truly does assist each in seeing more of the wonders of within ourselves and we do See the Earth more clearly and divinely as we unfold and Open to Her.It is especially within these areas that Lion and Leopard appear to walk with us, speak with us, and give their guidance and support. Both exude confidence and patience with a grounded heart and spirit. Lion helps with unlocking, knowing and living within your Truth. Finding your Voice and speaking with a calm gentle strength that gives leadership not through force of arms or "right by might" but by how you stand and embrace your Truth. Confidently sharing your abilities and, when those times call for it, to roar out with lovingly confidence. Not a haughtiness but a clarion call that gives inspiration to others as you have been inspired by the lions within your life. That they too find their roar. You can, do and shall rediscover your deep connection to Our Beloved Earth, to Spirit, and to that which is the Deepest, Highest and Most Divine Part of Who You Are.You will be able to adapt to any circumstance and hone your skills of observation and to move with grace and agility becoming more and more attuned to ourselves, our world and becoming more intuitive naturally and confidently. The Leopard will give her loving, patient assistance in these and many other areas.Both of these strong, loving guides will show and encourage us to allow ours lives to be a Simple Divine Unfolding of our Self and that gives us a peace and clarity in our relationships with Love, Peace, Wholeness and Joy.Unfold to Each Other
Today is as it is. You are as you are. All people simply are as they are. Release your plans, fantasies and expectations with the dawn and allow each relationship to blossom and develop in its own authentic way, a slowly unfolding discovery as two people explore themselves and each other.Let it be like this. Be as two flowers that open to each other, gradually revealing more and deeper truths. Let the rising sun of truth reveal the beauty which is you, deep within. Lift the fog of fantasy and expectation and just be. Be yourself shining forth in all that you are, exactly as you are, saying, doing, feeling and being with a deep integrity which reaches down to your core. And allow others to be who they are. Do not try to change them. Do not judge and criticize. Reveal and understand, unfolding to each other.Each relationship should be like this, a way to learn from each other, a deepening of your relationship to each other and to yourself. Each relationship fully explored will introduce you to more and deeper parts of yourself. And each bit of love that you give freely and unconditionally, makes your heart more open and receptive for the great love of the universe to flow in, an unending stream of light and goodness.Allow your life to be a simple unfolding of the self, like a rose opening on a summer day and sending perfume across the garden. And allow the other roses to open in their own way, with their own beauty, some still in the bud, some in their last days, some red, some pink and orange, but all beautifulThe LionCourage Confidence Command
