A Message from the "Buddha"
(through Brother ChiSing) to those in midlife, transition, or uncertainty
May 20, 2009

(The following message was written during a writing meditation exercise at last Saturday's "Day of Mindfulness" retreat. One of my friends who was attending was having a difficult time doing the second part of the exercise. The first part is to write a letter to the Buddha, or the Universe, or God, or your Higher Self, etc. The second part is to let the Buddha (or whoever you wrote to) write a letter back to you, through you. My friend couldn't bring himself to do the second part. So, I heard my "inner Buddha" encourage me to write it for him. So, the following is the letter from the Universe to him, but also to me, and perhaps to you as well. Both my friend and I and many other friends are going through midlife issues of one sort or another. Perhaps you are too, or maybe transition issues or uncertainty issues. Please hear the voice of the Buddha speaking heart-to-heart with you in this letter. And feel free to forward this letter to a friend who is going through a time of transition or uncertainty)

Dear _______________,

You are in an interesting place in your life, a crossroads, midlife. This is a very powerful and uncertain time. There is much potential here. I encourage you to utilize this time well, to find out who you are as a human being, as a spiritual being, as a beautiful expression of the Universe. This is a time of transition, a time of change, and you can either meet it with fear or with an open heart. It's up to you. Choose wisely.

I am here for you. You have all the support and resources that you need, even if you don't see it yet. The Universe is conspiring for your good, even if you don't understand it fully yet. I am here for you.

I am the air that gives you life, I am the friend that happens to call you just when you need it, I am the raindrops this morning, I am ChiSing caring about you, and I am your own heart.

You are wiser, you are stronger, you are more than you realize. Open your heart, and awaken to your inner peace, your kindness and your joy.

I love you. And I am always here for you.

The Universe
(written through your friend ChiSing)
