A Message of Love to You
Do not measure yourself against the illusions of love propagated by consumerism and marketing campaigns. Most of all, do not view yourself as “less than” those who receive grand gestures and proclamations of special love on this day that marketers use as yet another opportunity to make money in the guise of celebrating love. Rather, see what is truth beyond the glittery trappings and guilt-inducing advertisements of what has become a commercial holiday. You are Love. Period. You are God’s Child, created in Love and as Love. Your worth is not measured in the professions of love by another. Your worth is measured in the truth of your creation and being.
Where Do We Find the Love That We Seek?
The words to the chorus of “Where Is Love?” from the musical Oliver kept playing in my head this week:
Where is love?
Does it fall from skies above?
Is it underneath the willow tree
That I’ve been dreaming of?
Oliver’s search for love speaks to our hearts because we all know that yearning to find the love that is meant for only us,. We seek that special love that will speak to our hearts and fill us with its beauty. We look for that love that will make us feel special.
Contemplating the Power of My Expectations
I spent time reflecting on the following passage from Chapter 9, Section II, Paragraph 5 of the Text of A Course in Miracles this week:
The message your brother gives you is up to you. What does he say to you? What would you have him say? Your decision about him determines the message you receive.
The message my brother gives me is up to me? My decision about him determines the message I receive? I knew the truth in these words as soon as I read them, and I realized that knowing their truth placed responsibility on me for embodying this truth in my life.
Creating Spiritual Family With You
It has been my hope and prayer since I began this blog that, together, we can create a community in which we all feel recognized, supported, and loved unconditionally, and in which we can open ourselves up to share our light, our healing, and our spiritual openings. My dream is to create a very real experience of the spiritual family of which we are all a part, whether we recognize it or not. I would like to share a message I received from my dear spiritual Brother, Hart, and which he has given me permission to share with you. I have read your last few posts with alacrity and have felt most moved and inspired. As you express your ideas, you see, you are giving me voice and opening that space inside me that is in silence, yet responds so deeply to the ideas and metaphors and descriptions you provide me ( and […]
Creating Community with YOU
Hello to all of you, my dear readers. :)) I continue to be honoured and humbled by your loyal following. When I receive your comments and know that what I have shared has been helpful to you in some way, I am so thankful. That is always my hope and prayer when I write for you. My dream for this blog site is to involve YOU even more so that we can create a community in which we can share and support one another as we learn and grow personally and spiritually. I invite you to comment about your experiences and the understandings that you are developing. I promise that I will respond to all comments, and if we can begin a conversation together, that will be even better!! Just think… we can truly become a spiritual family, but in order to do that, we need to connect and communicate. I also […]
Finding Our Way to CHRISTmas
As we rush about in the mad scramble to get ready for Christmas, how many of us pause to think about what we are getting ready for? Is all the shopping, baking, wrapping, meal planning, party preparation, and more shopping what Christmas is all about? Does the true meaning of Christmas get lost in all the hustle and bustle? As we greet everyone we see with “Merry Christmas,” how many of us contemplate what we are really wishing for others? As we decorate our homes and yards with lights and sparkle, how many of us experience inner light and sparkle? How many of us truly feel the love and joy that this season is supposed to be all about? Instead, we feel pressure to prepare and to be ready to welcome the arrival of friends and family to celebrate this festive holiday. And what about those of us who are alone and who do not get to experience […]
Let Us Remember (including podcast)
Today is Remembrance Day in Canada, and as we lay wreaths to honour and remember those who have given their lives in the pursuit of peace, let us also remember that these fallen men and women were our brothers and sisters. The men and women who continue to serve our countries in order that we may live in peace and freedom are also our brothers and sisters. They are our brothers and sisters within the human family… God’s family. These men and women dedicate their service and, all too often, their lives to help those whose freedom and safety are threatened and taken away in the perpetuation of power, hatred, and judgement. These heroic individuals dedicate themselves to help others who are also our brothers and sisters within God’s family. We all remember today because the symbols and messages of remembrance are everywhere. We talk about the values that we hold dearest […]
