Thousands of years have passed and during all of that time humans have fought, killed, plundered, and wronged each other in every possible way. But also during that same time, many others have quietly, and patiently persevered in art, crafts, inventions, creative ideas, loving compassion, forgiveness, kindness, wisdom, and the creation of beauty.
When bad things happen most people endeavor to go on- to find food, water, shelter, and loving relationship with others. This determination deep within the human heart is a gift of The Great Weaver, the Spirit of All Life. It is from millions of creative individuals, filled with this spirit of life, most of them unnoticed and unknown in the upheavals of history, that the good, beautiful, inspiring, and lasting things originate. It is their gifts that are the sum of true humanity.
The sun and moon have risen for a million, million years and they still do this enthusiastically every day. The birds have been singing forever, even on the day they die. The seasons come and go- but in every season there is something new to appreciate. Life is happening! Life is continuously happening! And it will continue to express itself with determination, courage, fortitude, and purpose.
Let us remember that whatever needs to be done will manifest more readily when we remember laughter, play, and spontaneity. A new day always dawns bright and blue with promise and hope- a blessing after life’s black and damaging storms.
As the birds greet the day with joyous song may we remember to greet and rejoice in the presence of Spirit in our lives. May we have enthusiastic courage to persevere no matter how many unpleasant burrs are sticking to our socks at the moment.
Spirit speaks to us through meadows,
forests, valleys, hills,
and on the Holy Mountain.
She calls to us in rain, snow, and morning dew,
through waves of the sea and the splendor of the sun.
He expresses hope in the brilliance of the stars and in the
storms, thunder, lightning, and rainbows.
Spirit comes to us when we are alone.
Answering our call through Ancient Wisdom
and the voices of angels.
Spirit will speak to us through the end of time
For we are the Beloved Children
of Great Mother & Great Father.
Beloved-Help me flow into Your heart of eternal love,
that place where it is impossible to be alone.
May I freely express my great love
and my longing for Your Grace!
Master give me the courage to go forward
and the inspiration to do this in beauty.
Show me how to keep what is worth keeping
from the experinces of my life,
and with the breath of kindness
allow all else to be forgotten.
May I truly live my life to its fullest potential today!
