Each of us are born with a song to sing. This song is our unique authentic expression. It’s the truth of who we really are at the core. The experiences of our lives are trying to get us to sing our song out loud and on purpose. In fact you have an obligation to sing your song. To live your life never knowing your song, or never singing your song, would be a life not lived.
The poet Oliver Wendell Holmes said it like this, “The greatest tragedy of life is for man to go to his grave with his music still in his head.” That’s deep! It’s a horrible thing to walk around with a gift inside of you, and you have no idea it is there. I run across people all of the time who are gifted and have no idea. No one is telling them that they have something to offer the world. So they walk around disillusioned and despondent never realizing their potential.
The only way you can live a life full of bliss, is to walk through life living your song.Your song is something that you love to do. If you had to, you would do it for free. Doing what you love to do is not work at all. When you are doing what you love to do, you are courting your bliss. You are feeding your heart and your soul with true peace and love.
Oftentimes you may allow others to dictate what your life should look like. You may even let them define you. The ironic thing about it is that, your life is already defined by the spirit that lives in you. It says that you are unlimited potential. It wants to express itself and engage you in its melody. It wants to possess you and obsess you with its rhythm. If you listen carefully this inner soul song will guide you. It will bring you to places dearest to your heart. The only reason why you fail to hear the promptings of your song is because you are distracted. You are weighed down with the issues of life.
To “Court the Bliss Life” you must be willing to express love on the highest levels possible. To do this, you must eliminate the noise around you. Get away from the things and people that are holding you back. You must be willing to go to places that you’ve never gone to before. You must have the courage to explore the possibilities of bliss that exist all around you. If you find that anything hinders you from exhibiting this higher expression of love, you must let it go. To let go is to “let God.” What do you mean Sherie to let go is to “let God?” To let go is to allow the higher part of yourself, the platform to shine in all areas of your life. It’s letting go of the old ways of doing things, seeing things, and believing in things. The definition of insanity is when you continue to do the same thing over and over and expect a different result.
Look at your results and if you find you are coming up short, let go of something. This paves the way for you getting what you want. Sometimes letting go is difficult because you may be attached to people, relationships, situations and things. The question then should be: How is this relationship or situation serving me? If it is not, and it’s detracting from your quality of life, let it go!
Your life’s goal should be one of “Courting the Bliss Life.” So many of us allow others to rob us of our bliss. They say that, “Birds of a feather flock together.” Who are you hanging around? Are you hanging around people that edify you and add to your life? Are you participating in toxic relationships that rob you of your spirits song? Do you have a mate who is compatible with you and on the same wave length? Or are they incompatible and emotionally detached? Do you hang around people that help you to grow?
Answering these questions makes it easy to know whether or not you are infact “Courting the Bliss Life.” If you said yes to any of these questions; it’s time to examine your life and start letting go, so that you may let the song of your spirit begin to sing. Stop settling and allowing yourself to have the shortest end of the stick. What are you waiting for? It’s time to “Court the Bliss Life.”
