Things with purpose seem to embody more worth, more value. The wilted lemon appears to have little value except for maybe adding nutrients to the compost pile. However, its user cuts the lemon open and squeezes out the still fragrant juice to clean his counter and sink, leaving behind a sweet essence of clean. What a valuable lemon! When we feel as though our value has been deflated, it may simply be that the universe is preparing us for a shift in purpose. Feeling lost does not always mean that you've left your path and somehow missed the signposts along the way. It may perhaps mean that is it time to create a new direction that leads you to an even more spectauclar vista. The tree that no longer produces fruit shifts its purpose to provide habitat and food for a new community. Look around your home, how will you re-purpose an old item? Look around your heart, how will you re-purpose an old mindset that no longer serves you?

When we feel pressure from the external world, it feels real and it is real, but only because we perceive it to be so. We feel energy telling us that the world wants something from us, as though it demands us to create change against our will. Cleaning the floors late past your bedtime just because you believe the universe expects it of you can cause unnecessary discomfort. Feeling like you need to have children to please your family's need for small people to spoil, is often an opinion created in your own mind without proof. Why we put ourselves through this test is unknown, but in nature, a flower doesn't become stressed because of a perceived thought. It reacts to a squeeze from the elements, a change in physical properties, not a whisper on the breeze. When this pressure builds up, before you recoil into a ball and coat your mind in guilt, ask an external reference if this belief is based in truth. Most of the time, your assumption will be met with confusion followed by a release and then, comfort.
