Sowing Spirit Seeds

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.

inspirationWhy 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 mosPower-of-Forgiveness1t 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.

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.

Trust

“Ambition and goal-setting are essential to the path of life, but they will get you in trouble on the Path of Spirit.”  

The Path of Spirit is surrender.  It is trust that Great Spirit will help, guide, guard, and protect us.  When our faith in these truths is smaller than a mustard seed we feel the need to problem solve, set goals, strive, and evaluate ourselves and others. When our desires do not unfold in the way we want, in the way we feel is needed, we may lose faith in Spirit.  But, a trust that happens only when things go our own way is not trust.

Often we believe that Spirit is promising us things and then not delivering those promises.  We hear that if we follow certain rules, work on certain processes, and practice certain disciplines then Spirit will reward us.  One has only to read the lives of the Saints to discover that Spirit did not save them from the pain, grief, fear, and anger of the world.
So, why follow Spirit at all?

We can choose Spirit and the spiritual path because it teaches us to hold, and know, the possibilities of love, peace, kindness, and generosity regardless of what is happening around us or to us. 

This is what the Saints understood; that when we surrender to Spirit we are surrounded with peace even when nothing in the outer world has changed.

Queen of All Saints 3

 Humans are very attached to struggling.
We strive to be perfect.
We try to succeed.
When we are not struggling and striving we quickly become bored.

  • What if we allowed ourselves to laugh more often?
  • What if we appreciated the small joys of each day?
  • What if we saw life with spirit eyes?
  • What if today we make other people more important than we are?
  • What if today was your last day on earth?

As I awaken this day to Great Spirit’s Dream,
As I walk in the light of truth,
May I remember that I don’t have to be perfect.
Teach me to accept my personal challenges
and minimize their effects
in the lives of the people around me.

Teach me to live as though my only job
Was to create love, laughter, kindness
and joy in the world.
Help me to accept myself
And all others as who they are.
Assist me to make my life story
into an Angel’s Life Story.
