Discovering Your “Promised Land”

Happy New Year!

2013 is now officially over and for many of us it was a deeply transformational year. As the new calendar year begins, I asked for some insights about the year ahead. What I heard intuitively was that this year I should focus on finding my own “promised land” and then help others to find what this means for them. Moses and the story of the trip through the desert is something that has offered great insights metaphorically for me, as I have changed and grown these last few years. What if we are actually approaching the time when we step out of the desert into a new land? What does this new landscape look like for you? What does it look like for me?

It occurs to me that rather than being a place we create, that it is instead a matter of discovering what is already here. It feels to me we are learning to expand our awareness, finding the deeply beautiful when we look beyond the narrow view of our ego and connect with our soul’s perspective. I had a simple example of this yesterday. I tend to get cold easily and as I was falling asleep last night I found myself wishing to just feel comfortably warm for a change. I found myself looking back over the day and being gently offered all the moments where I did feel this warmth. A heated seat in the vehicle I was riding in, an infrared heater overhead at the restaurant I was eating at, warm fleece pants, soft slippers, and cozy wool socks and the warmth of the water as I washed dishes. All of these little moments were filled with that glorious warm feeling and I had experienced many of them during the day. What if it is this simple? What if, instead of trying to find what we are seeking this year, we just need to notice that it is already here?

On that note, I want to share a passage from one of my all time favorite books – The Prophet by Kahlil Gibran.

“The veil that clouds your eyes shall be lifted by the hands that wove it, And the clay that fills your ears shall be pierced by those fingers that kneaded it. And you shall see. And you shall hear. Yet you shall not deplore having known blindness, nor regret having been deaf.”

This year, I invite you all to join me in looking at our lives, our loved ones, and ourselves through the eyes of love. As we allow the fear “veil” to lift, perhaps we will find that we are already home – that in truth, we have always had the “promised land” within.

Wishing you all a beautiful New Year’s Day and a very happy, abundant 2014!

With love,
Nancy
