One of the seeds of Spirit is inspiration. Gift giving is representative of a caring and loving heart. It is all based on being inspired to give of the self. This is difficult to do when we don’t feel love, joy, or peace.
Why did we forget that we were born to love? Things happened. People were unkind to us. We were not taught to release our fears to Divine Mother and Father. Yet our work of Spirit is to an inspiration of love.
Many of us interface with our family of origin because of obligation or duty. Perhaps it’s time to be inspired to forgive the past hurts, criticisms, and disappointments. Perhaps it’s time to rediscover the love we brought with us from Spirit. Generosity is not bargaining; it’s giving away whether that person gives back or not. Instead of keeping score, let’s be inspired to love and forgive.
When we are focused on the past most of what we remember is what we don’t like about that past. We are beings of Light. Everything is possible for us even forgiving ancient wrongs. Love is forever within us so that all we have to do is remember that love instead of the old stories of sorrow and pain. Pain can be forgotten. May we be inspired to express the loving, joyous spirit that we were born to be.
It helps to start the day with meditation. If we don’t have time to pray and connect with the Great Being within, we have just screwed up our day. When we are thinking crabby, depressed, anxious thoughts we will probably be giving them away. When we start our day with a reminder that we are here to create love, to live life fully in grace our day will be filled with laughter, love, and inner peace.
It’s important to focus on whatever we wish more of in our lives. When we pray, we are reminding ourselves of what is possible. Nothing is impossible for Divine Father and Mother. Prayer aligns our mind and emotions with Spirit’s truth, Spirit’s story. We may have to repeat these reminders because we have a short attention span.
If we want to create something positive we must do something to make it happen. After 2000 years we are still praying for peace. Why? Maybe because we think prayer is enough. Maybe we have to create peace in our lives before it can manifest in the world around us. To create peace- we could forgive others; forgive ourselves; do something nice for the neighbor we most dislike; or stand with a peace vigil. There is always something we can do.
Thoughts don’t count unless they lead to action. Wouldn’t it be nice if …but people are hungry, dying, and unloved. Thoughts don’t count until we act upon those thoughts. Perhaps we could foster a cheerful attitude whether we feel like it or not. A virtue is something we cultivate that isn’t natural to us.
When we are truly align with Spirit’s energy we must feel something or we are wasting our time. We have to feel something to have power with that something. Sad thoughts weaken us; happy thoughts strengthen us. Feel deeply Divine Mother’s will, Divine Father’s peace, Great Weavers healing-and act to manifest that truth! Think, feel, be in alignment with Divine Mother and Father’s will and act from that place of inner rightness!
If we don’t sow the seeds of eternity, we might find that our earthly experience is filled with suffering. Find a saint to emulate. Look until you find one you can relate to. Be the saint you are capable of being. You can if you will. What do I resolve to do that Spirit wants me to do? What do I want more of in my life? Think it. Feel it. And Act on it. Sow the Seeds of Eternity and reap the harvest of love and joy- over, and over, and over again.
