NOTES FROM THE AWARENESS: 490

Life always offers clues.

Please reflect and share. How does this play out for you?

We’re often distracted in life. Our focus is usually on something from the past or in the future. Seldom are we dialed in on the present moment and what is going on in and around us. That’s unfortunate. Not only do we lose out on the joys of savoring now, we also miss the continuous hints and messages creation generates for us.

Creation has boundless resources and is inventive. It provides us with omens, coincidences, similes, and more to convey realizations and understanding to us. The signs may be subtle or more dramatic, but we will certainly miss them if we are not attentive to the now.

Even then, we will need to be curious to get the meaning. For instance, presence of a mouse in our home may signal the need to pay attention to the small stuff, aka details. Observing a chance interaction among strangers may remind us that our own relationships could use a tune up. An unexplained uneasiness may prompt us to drive an alternative route, thereby avoiding an accident. Clues are always there for us when we pay attention.

Today’s message reminds me that help from creation is always present, often in advance of when I may need it. When my spidey sense is engaged, I am receptive to many subtle hints and sensations. I’m grateful for the continuous clues creation offers for my benefit.

How about you? How do you get messages from creation?
