Discover your gift

By: Marjory Mejia

It’s been a while since I heard a message in a dream.  A few days ago, this one kept on looping until I got up so it wouldn’t sleep away from my consciousness. It persisted like a bird flying to the surface of my mind.

Wake up.

“Discover your gift.”

Discover– First you got to find it, then uncover, unveil, reveal.

Your– It’s yours darling, but it needs to be claimed.

Gift– Let it flow. A gift is not a static thing, it is something you give and receive.

A gift exudes generosity:

In your heart –a pearl is born, a flower blooms.

In this moment -instead of pushing it away and fighting it, do something radical..


Uncomfortably still. I resist. Isn’t there another way? No. I hear. Everything gets so still so you can listen.

While I want to be a river, right now my soul oscillates between being a waterfall of ideas: energizing, intoxicating, refreshing, and a calm lake: a container of divine flow with soothing ripples, waves and echoes that gather in the stillness of being.

And so I listen.


Get flowing!

    What a gorgeous writing, Marjory, and I will try to follow your instructions and example today, because your words bring up so many things for me. What is my gift? What can I be curious about? And the image of wanting to be a river and a waterfall, and at the same time acknowledging the stillness of being. A lovely poem you’ve given us.

    It reminds me of how Siddhartha and Vasudeva ferry many passengers across the river daily and yet what they want and know is that the answers, eternity comes from observing and listening to and being with the river itself, gaining stillness and peace from this motion and change. The passengers are looking for something else and what they might want is what they’re crossing.

    And then I think of this poem by Cid Corman,

    “I want nothing of the river and
    it clearly wants nothing of me.
    Yet as it flows out of the mountains
    into my eyes, the heart becomes a sea.”

    Thank you for your gift today.

    Garrett…. said it so well..
    hearing a voice inside as well
    telling me to put my money where my mouth is
    about something I keep thinking about.. but not quite doing just yet
    and when I heard the Universe say that to me… I laughed myself silly.. for it was right… and it is what I must do.. for whatever is to unfold for me next.

    thank you for unfolding your dream past my window

  8. Marjory says:

    Oh Marjory, what loveliness! And sooooooo well said…so “to the point.” I find that I am wrapped up in words these days — taking too long to get out the point. You say all this so clearly and sussinctly (It’s late, i can’t spell tonight). oh reading your posts is like drinking cool water on a warm evening. thank you thank you thank you.
