TRANSCENDENCE – Daily Affirmation

At the boundary between life and living there is an extraordinary quest to experience transcendence. This side of that flight of soul, there is a deep growing need to feel more, to push past the daily boundaries we are enmeshed within. It is not that our brains seek novelty, it is that something beating, vibrating within our chests knows we have so much more we can feel.

affirmations, transcendence

The heart of the explorer expands ever so far knowing there is something beyond what we have known. But somehow we cannot go there, days move past us quickly, and we are no nearer that place of inside-out envelopment. At intervals we raise our hearts above the daily clutter and wonder if we will ever go there, ever step into the unknown, seeking the unexperienced place on our map, titled “unexplored territory” written large across it.

We try so many diversions, so many promising paths hoping they will lead us there. Yet after repeated failures we realize they were diversions, pushing more days behind us on the calendar. And no nearer our goal – transcendence.

affirmations, transcendence

We cannot do it alone, we come to realize, we cannot go there unaccompanied. It is not because we are incomplete, but that the transcendence we seek comes from the merging of complete beings acting in beautiful harmony. It is the chain reaction of souls in close proximity to each other, each radiating energy to the other, each feeling increased power to give and to simultaneously receive.

It is this contained explosive harmony that drives our souls to places we could never reach alone. It is the exquisite vibration at ever higher frequencies that breaks the bonds that tie us to life, that push us far past ordinary, where transcendence cannot be denied.

Transcendence is a result, not action. And it is here, enmeshed in the radiating net of transcendence that the experience of life begins.

Then our remaining quest is to do it again tomorrow.

affirmations, transcendence

  1. I lost my mom the day before Mother’s Day and then my daughter got married exactly one week later. I have been feeling things I’ve never felt before. This post is so inspiring to me while I go through the process of grieving.

  2. I would love to push past the daily boundaries I am enmeshed within. Sometimes it’s hard to go it alone but other times it is as it should be. I’ve had so many things to grieve about this past couple of years. I lost several friends and family members and I needed some healing energy by the end of the year.

  3. I have a special needs child and I go thorough the day on a roller coaster, day in and day out. But every morning, without hesitation, I get right back on it.

  4. This is the type of story that i LOVE to read. I have so many inspirational books, about knowing your higher self and what you can achieve. I know that daily activities and life always seems to make it difficult to focus on us and enjoy the beauty around us.

  5. I push and keep going every day. Losing my husband in the beginning of the year truly let me know how short life is. I am a work in progress but I keep myself and our children going. I am working on meditation and looking into therapy.

  6. Those diversions can definitely distract you from your original goals. It takes a long time to learn how to stay on the right path.

  7. Finding harmony within myself that it radiates outwardly is always a work-in-progress for me. I get lost in the day to day tasks and really need to set aside time for ‘me’.

  8. Bonnie Lee says:

    I always get so stressed out during work that when I get home I can’ think straight sometimes. I taught myself how to knit to help me relieve some stress. It helps and I have made tons of cute bags!

  9. Raven P. says:

    I have severe anxiety and depression and go through so many up and downs within a day. This is a great article and I appreciate you sharing it with all of us

  10. Marti Tabora says:

  12. There is so much “noise” in our daily living that sometimes just taking some moments to be calm helps.

  13. Nicole M. says:

    I just started yoga. I have to keep up with it, though. Seems the more stressed and upset I get, the less I go to classes, which is the opposite of what I SHOULD do.

  14. Stacie H says:

    Wow, I can really relate. You have just put my thoughts and feelings into words.

  15. Sophia,M.,McConnery says:

    I am exploring all different ways to do this.Have pain issues!

  16. Sherrie C. says:

    Each day I wake up doing the same old routine I’ve always done. I sometimes feel I need to push through barriers and escape the monotony of my everyday existence. But it’s time like that that I remind myself that life is short and unpredictable and I should just feel thankful and blessed to be here one more day doing the same old things I’ve always done surrounded by the people that I love and love me back.

  17. Angelic Sinova says:

    I can relate to this on so many levels! As I’ve gotten older, I’ve learned to just go with the flow and face live head on.

  18. Nena Sinclair says:

    This is such an interesting post! I can use some help in this department, my Mom is 89 and hasn’t been in good health, she was actually just released from the hospital, after being there for 6 months, and is now in a personal care home. It’s hard to watch her aging and going through so many difficulties. My family also lost my youngest brother on Christmas eve, in a head on collision. Sometimes life is hard.

  19. Jeanne Coulombe says:

    Great post loved the info

  20. It’s so important to really make time for ourselves. Not to get lost in putting others first and being part of the rush of life.

  27. Jeanine says:

    Positivity is oh SO important, and i think staying positive is really important to help not only yourself but others too.

  28. This is such a lovely and very uplifting post. I try to slow down the pace of daily activities in order to achieve transcendence in my everyday life, and agree it is something you can’t and shouldn’t try to achieve alone.

  29. Kimberley Thomas says:

    Interesting post. . My Mom passed away last year and it’s been difficult for me.

  35. This is really lovely! I really resonated with “The heart of the explorer expands ever so far knowing there is something beyond what we have known.” It’s the same sentiment I have every time I walk along the ocean.

  36. Michele D says:

    I lost my mom back in February and I will say, life has not been easy without her. I struggle with a lot of emotions and sadness which in returns makes it difficult to keep motivated and moving. This is a great post! Thank you for sharing it!

  44. It is very difficult to raise yourself above the daily clutter of life. I try but am rarely successful.

  45. I know if ppl. Just take the time to relax and use this it will work

  46. Nicole Flyn says:

    Transcendence is easy, yet hard to achieve. It is more consciously reached in the beginning, and may be elusive as we frantically search our brains to “find” it. Once realized that it can be achieved without such effort and sought in everyday moments, one can easily go in and out of transcending moments throughout the day. It never hides, or remains elusive of it self, as it is a state and is always waiting. I am no expert in any way, it is still hard for me most days to seek, yet some days I walk outside, look to the sky, and there I have it.

  47. Katherine McPherson says:

    I think everyone goes through unique challenges in their lives. To me, affirmations are like speaking to your soul! Lovely article!

  52. Anne Marie Carter says:

    Beautiful location to get “one with yourself”! Having an internal calmness is vital to a healthy life.

  53. Such a nice post. I am not one to push boundaries and I am happy with the little things in my life.

  54. Christina G. says:

    These are very inspiration photos. Thanks for sharing!

  55. Laurie Bolduc-Cadieux says:

    I can fully relate. I am raising 2 special needs children with my own issues to top it off.

  56. In this busy life, we really often get to be distracted with so many things. And somehow we are encouraged to achieve so much in such a little time. It’s good to reflect sometimes. Are those dreams really worth catching? What if it’s not really your calling? What if it’s just something to distract you from your real purpose? We should learn to weigh things and know our inner selves in order to really know which path to take.

  57. alice f says:

    I can relate to everything you just said. We set our own boundaries and often become comfortable inside those. We have the power to be comfortable in our own skin; we just have to allow that to happen.
