The Classic Pamela Positive: “You’ll See Spirit Operating Everywhere” – Dan Millman

 

“Like the flower, trusting Spirit working according to a higher will beyond the reach of your mind, you’ll see Spirit operating everywhere, in everyone and everything… To trust the process of your life. The more you trust Spirit in this way, the more you will work with it directly as a living force in your life… unfolding, like a flower, toward the Light.” 

—Dan Millman

The Classic Pamela Positive: Don’t Just Stop and Smell the Flowers

 

“Stop and smell the flowers” is a good starting point.  But why not stay with the flower?

 

Have you ever really looked at what makes up the flower? Its petals, the stamen, the actual layout and folding over of different petals… it’s quite remarkable.

 

Appreciate the wisdom behind its creation.

Its unfolding process as it blooms…

 

 

 

And its journey of growth.

 

 

 

 

It’s simple and complex in its beauty and expression.

 

And so are you. Appreciate the beautiful simplicity and complexity of you and of each of our fellow men, women and children. Be open and beautiful; endure through your growth.

The Classic Pamela Positive: Something That Finishes…Is Only a Beginning

“There will come a time when you believe everything is finished.  This will be the beginning.”

– Louis L’Amour

Don’t be afraid when something ends. That means something else is going to bloom — or boom for you.  There is no sad or disappointing end. It’s simply a transition.  Let’s all trust that higher wisdom.

If nature knows exactly when the bud should blossom, does it not also know when your life should blossom?  Every event is joyously and perfectly planned.

Love, Pamela

Louis L’Amour was an American author. He is best known for his Western fiction novels, though he also wrote historical fiction, science fiction, nonfiction, poetry and short-story collections.  He was born Louis Dearborn LaMoore on March 22, 1908, the last of seven children.  He grew up in Jamestown, North Dakota, a medium-sized farming community.  As he grew older, he traveled throughout the United States and abroad, in various positions including as a mine assessment worker, a professional boxer and a merchant seaman.  In the 1930s, Louis and his family settled in Oklahoma, and Louis turned his focus to writing.  He began to have success with short stories in the late ‘30s and ‘40s, beginning to sell novels in the 1950s.  Louis also served in the United States Army during World War II.  Louis ultimately wrote 89 novels and more than 250 short stories.
