When you're down to nothing

Aug 17, 2007
Are You an Ugly Duckling?

Sometimes in life, we may feel like ugly ducklings.

We can't fit in. Our walk is not the right waddle and our squawk is off-key. In fact, we wonder if the other ducks are snickering behind our back.

Our life is an example of what does not work. And, in quiet desperation, we feel we may soon be down to nothing.

The original sin appears to have found its full manifestation in us.

But consider this: we may actually be swans.

And amongst swans, we fit in perfectly. Our feathers are the right shade, length, and texture, our gait is regal, our voice has a perfect pitch, and we swim with grace. And what we reflect is the original perfection.

Swans aspire to their spiritual splendor.

They recognize that this life is transitory and that they have a hunger to connect with the source of all life. In essence, a part of them wants to feel a connection with all of life.

They're really focused on reaching enlightenment itself.

It's a novel situation to be a human being, and when we grasp this simple concept, we aspire to move ahead in a different way than other people.

As a swan, you've realized for some time now that your beliefs will cause you to create or attract situations and events that you experience as your life.

It's your goal to explore your own belief system and you search to equip yourself with tools to modify those things which you wish to change.

You also seek to balance the understandings that you glean from world lessons, or experiences, as well as from word lessons, or intellectual understanding.

When you touch your true swan nature, I suspect, you will find an amazing love for life, and you will be a catalyst for positive change in the world. Your health, your relationships, your career, and your finances will all be touched and improved when you master deeper levels of your own consciousness.

Imagine feeling a profoundly deep connection to your own being, a connection that defies description. Imagine meeting others and see within them your own humanity and struggle for the light of truth.

As a swan, you aspire towards an experience of compassionate, accepting connection with all of life. You seek your own true power. In a world of lies, you seek truth.

If you find your life impossible right now--where you don't quite seem to fit in and things aren't going quite right for you--it may be that you're a swan pretending to be a duck.

It may be time to accept that a greater game than you had imagined is afoot.

Sometimes when you're down to nothing, your Spirit is up to something. The ugly duckling is about to recognize that it is a swan.
