I wish someone would have told me

iwishsomeonewouldhavetoldme

I wish someone would have told me where I needed to start my journey was sitting on the floor with my eyes closed.

I wish someone would have told me that the first step was not looking outside myself but inside myself.
I wish someone would have told me when I felt that I had nothing to offer the world that I should sit in silence and breath. That the secret was to come face to face with my true self. Maybe then I would have realized that my true worth was not in gaining material goods but in finding myself.

I wish someone would have told me that finding myself was worth more than any material good.
I wish someone would have told me when I was lost and desperate for support that nothing would south me but me. I wish someone would have told me that the dark days are a calling to get me closer to who I am. That the challenges I was going through had an important reason behind them.

I wish someone would have told me that when I resisted, was distracted, pointed fingers, fought it I that I was running away from my power.
I was running away because I didn’t believe I had any.
I wish someone would have told me that all I would ever want and desire was waiting within and that’s where I needed to start. That in that quiet space alone was where I would find my wealth of wisdom and value.

I wish someone would have told me that with a little patience and willingness to sit there I would discover that I always had the answer I was searching for.
I wish someone would have told me that housed within me was a personal guiding system.
A system that would guide me to my most joyous life.

I wish someone would have told me that by going within I would meet the only person who could truly love me and that person was my highest self.
My limitless being.

To my daughter:

Aspen my dear, if daddy has one thing to pass on to you it’s this – now listen carefully:

Every morning when you wake up, know that you have all you need inside you.
