The truth about Enlightenment

“Love is… Allowing your own personal enlightenment to become a source of light and lightness to others.” 

kjktammy-1Enlightenment is a three-fold process. At its core it is essentially a journey into appreciating your own spiritual nature and your connection with the divine source. However, it is not merely an academic development. The revelations you uncover must have a practical outworking in your life.

If step one is appreciation, then step two is application. As you see and appreciate more, this spiritual illumination should also lighten up your approach towards life. There should be less judgments of your imperfections and more acceptance of them as stepping stones to growth. You should feel less burdened, as if a weight is being progressively lifted off your shoulders.

As this process is unfolding, and yes it is a process, then the third step is amplification. Amplification is making something bigger and more effective, and in this case it means sharing your love with others and letting your light and lightness enlighten them. Who can you enlighten today with a simple act of kindness or word of encouragement? That’s true love!

Love & Light

Appreciate your inner greatness

“Achieving greatness in the outer world begins by understanding that you have greatness in your inner world”

kjktammy-1One of my most-inspiring mentors over the years often says, “You have greatness within you.” What an amazing thought. So here’s a fantastic question to ask yourself today. “How much more could I do in life if I truly believed that I have greatness within me?”

You do have greatness within you. Whether you believe it or not, it is still there. However, accessing all the greatness and turning the potential into performance demands belief. If you believe that you are capable of great things, then you will access the great potential that resides within, but if you believe yourself to be mediocre and limited, that’s exactly how you will be.

You are great because you have an unlimited imagination to conceive of anything that you want. You are great because you are a spiritual being with unlimited potential. You are great because the spark of the creative mastermind behind the entire universe illuminates your soul. Don’t sell yourself short, your inner greatness awaits outer expression.

Love & Light

The giver of the gift

“The giver of the gift is the one who receives the most, if they have the eyes to see it”

dutchieI am the very proud owner of a beautiful Jack Russell Terrier. He’s indeed my best buddy, and we have a bond that brings me a tremendous amount of pleasure. One day, I decided to buy him a different type of dog food. So, I looked at the choices on the store shelf, read the descriptions on the labels, and finally settled on one that I was certain he’d enjoy.

After arriving home, I grabbed his dish and made a big fuss out of putting some of the food into it. I pretended that I was going to eat it, and of course this heightened his desire to see what was being offered. With a smile, I finally put the dish on the floor, looking forward to the anticipated reaction as he’d voraciously feast upon it!

Imagine therefore my shock when he sniffed it, gave it one small lick, and then walked away from it never to go near it again. My gift had been rejected. Was I therefore also to feel rejected? Far from it! My pleasure came from simply being the giver, regardless of his response!

Love & Light
