Give Your Story As An Offering

--by Llewellyn Vaughan-Lee (Mar 17, 2008)


Wait till you feel your own story like a dream, like a possibility, and then give it to the earth as an offering. Give your own story to the earth as an offering, full of meaning, full of possibilities, and full of the song of the soul, that ancient song, so ancient it was born before the beginning and yet also knows the meaning of time.

The earth has been so much cut up that it needs again to know wholeness, to be given wholeness as a gift. What you can offer is your own story which is your own wholeness, the essence of your becoming, to give that as a seed to the heart of the world. It has been given to you and so you give it, you pass it on, your own story, the essence of your own unfolding. Each moment we expect something to happen and so we do not give ourselves, not realizing that this gift is the happening. When we give ourselves to life, life is impregnated with the future. Life is longing to be opened, to be made holy, to be redeemed from so much materialism. And remember this is only the beginning, this opening to a different dimension of being.

You have arrived. There is nowhere else to go. You are where you ought to be. There is no future and no past in this moment. But you make it holy through giving yourself.

Just give the seed of your own story to life; open it with love and life will respond. Life will take your seed and place it in the heart of the world, where it will keep alive the fire that burns there, that burns in the heart of the heart of the world. That is your offering. That is all that you can ever give. Slowly the world will start to spin on a new axis of love.

 Nice! It inspires me a lot and i hope that other people could maybe do as the same as you did. Sharing the story of your life is the most important thing that we could do in our life, because other people could learn from it!

good luck for you next entry!!

Beautiful words. "You have arrived. There is nowhere else to go. You are where you ought to be. There is no future and no past in this moment. But you make it holy through giving yourself."

It is some easy and calm when I devote myselves to this Universe and know that everything is fine and everything will be fine. All I have to do is to be in the moment, be the moment.

Thank-you for the insirational words. I have a tattoo around my right ancle that reads calm down, smile and laugh. This is for me. I encourage the children of my life, and adults when facing a challenge to breath deep, bigin, get through it and then it is done. I say chilren because the challenge for them so often is home work. Thank-you. I love all.

Farewell

Saturday I was hesitant to go for the meet in, today it feels like the most beautiful experience a human being can have. We discussed life and expectations from life and he said, " The day I am on my death-bed I want to look back and feel satisfied that the people whose life I have touched knowing or unknowingly- I have left a positive feeling in them. I live in today, make each and every moment beautiful, tomorrow when I will look at past, I will see only beautiful moments and look forward to make the future beautiful. When I face a probelm, I look at it objectively, no problem is big-it is another challenge: spice that life gives us. I never panick because if I panic I will be able to deliver 20% of my performance and If I take the challenge heads on I will be able to give 80%. I look forward to a relation without expectations and a no complication life".
HE HAS CHANGED MY LIFE, MY OUTLOOK TOWARDS LIFE. I AM THANKFUL TO HIM.
