I wrote this blog posting several weeks ago. I have delayed posting it as each new challenge was raised and my resolve to overtly counter darkness with light wavered at times. The purpose of this blog is, in part, to inspire and uplift through a mindful awareness of Spirit. We are living in a strange moment, but we must always remember we are spiritual beings having a physical experience and, as such, whatever is happening now to this country and the world is a part of a learning process that stretches into the far reaches of time. In that awareness, I vow to raise my voice to counter the darkness. Here is that blog post:
Donald Trump is a gift from the universe. Yes! A gift! Maybe even a blessing! Because he has so stirred up the melting pot that is the U.S. and the world around us that the only response we can possibly have is to increase our mindfulness; to practice kindness, compassion, and empathy; to heal and love each other; and to spread the Light that we are, to meld together our individual sparks into a great fire of peace and inclusion. We are One! We have always been One! And we will always be One! And even our real motto, E Pluribus Unum, out of the many, One, declares this. Yes, you have a choice to work in the darkness that is epitomized and personified as Donald Trump, or you can join the revolution of spiritual evolution, by living and loving in and of the Light! Namaste!
A new year? Every day is the beginning of another year! July 1 of one year will start the spin to July 1 the next year! Every day is a day for examining our lives. Do we like the direction our lives are taking? Are we happy with our relationships, our work, our living space? Do we feel drawn to make improvements to these, or change these up entirely? Is it time to rethink our beliefs and the direction of our dreams? Are we growing spiritually toward being the best self we can be? Is our health optimal or are there changes we need to make in order to be strong and healthy for the next steps on our life path. And where is that life path taking us? Do we need to add knowledge or develop a finer vision? Are we daring to live the life we see when we close our eyes and imagine our happiest moments yet to come? Are we examining our place in the universe and how we can add to the positive and subtract from the negative in our world and from those around us? Are we looking at each other as spirits, all in this as one, trying to create the best situation for all? Are we removing pain and hurt where we see it? Are we opening our hearts to give and accept healing, peace, light, and love? As we venture into this new year, let us spend a little time each day examining our lives and being aware of those around us, our fellow spirits, living and learning together. Namaste!
