About beliefs and foundations

It seems to me that the only true foundation we have is what we hold to inside ourselves. It is the beliefs we choose to embrace and make part of us.

I've spent much of life thinking and rethinking, making a decision, and then deciding something different later. I like to be flexible. Yet, there are some beliefs, some ideas that serve us greatly. These are our foundations.

If you find a belief that brings you joy and comfort, hold to that belief. Find others to add to it. Create your own foundation for what "life's all about" with the thoughts you think and the beliefs you embrace.

How firm our foundation is entirely up to us. We can choose to make it sturdy, or.. let it be blown away, like sand in the wind. Choose beliefs that serve you and support increased life for all. Each day we are building. What do you want to create?

Some beliefs I hold to:

The Universe is a kind, loving and supportive place, and even the challenges are for our growth and learning.

Life is about learning and discovery.

Help and guidance is always available.

Expression in all forms (art, writing, song, etc) makes the heart sing.

People are good, especially as they clear away limiting beliefs.

There is only abundance.

Connection is bliss.

and...with some input from the Beatles...

Love is all you need:

There's nothing you can do that can't be done.
Nothing you can sing that can't be sung.
Nothing you can say but you can learn how
to play the game. It's easy.
Nothing you can make that can't be made.
No one you can save that can't be saved.
Nothing you can do but you can learn how
to be you in time. It's easy.

All you need is love. All you need is love.
Love is all you need.

Nothing you can know that isn't known.
Nothing you can see that isn't shown.
Nowhere you can be that isn't where you're meant to be.

It's easy.

My favorite line:

Nowhere you can be that isn't where you're meant to be.

Wherever we are, wherever this day finds us, is right for us.

I know, I have my own things I am resisting about this day. But there is wisdom to be found in asking, Why? What creates this resistance in me? Things aren't always as we prefer in the moment, but later, they seem perfected orchestrated, as we open to the lesson.

Here's to a New Year of healthy foundations.
