It’s as simple (though sometimes not easy) as 1, 2, 3. Part 4 is acknowledging yourself as a Divine co-creator. Maybe you are combining one, shifting patterns; two, helping the Earth; and three, sharing your gifts; into One. Your life’s work is You. To know yourself is a Divine Command. Or, maybe each of these aspects leads you on a lifelong journey of discovery. Every part of your being is designed in such a very unique way to assure your success. Your time and place of birth, your parents and family, your name, your culture and ancestry, all contribute to your inner discovery of yourself.
The first time I ever had an astrological reading the practitioner said she didn’t know how I was alive. She exclaimed, “You have no Earth in your chart.” I’m glad I didn’t have that reading until I was 34 years old or I might have been worried. She then went back to reading me through the spiritual symbols and told me everything in my chart pointed to me being a spiritual seeker and channel. A few years later I did open to channel which I have been doing ever since.
I love simplicity, so when Jesus said to Love God with all of your heart and your neighbor as your Self that idea has been my guide. Simple, but often not easy. I made an acronym to help me, SIMPLE: “Spirit Is Mine, Precious Love Energy.” Putting that into practice is a life-long pursuit.
I love the story of the monk who went to his Master and asked, “Teach me a prayer that I might find enlightenment.” The Master agreed and started with, “Our Father.” His student said, “Thank you,” and went off to live his life. He returned to his Master 20 years later as an Enlightened Being and said, “Master I’m ready for the rest of the prayer.” Those two words, Our Father, say it all.
Our lives are an expression of the Divine. This Holiday a wonderful movie, A Beautiful Day in the Neighborhood, has been released. The story of Mr. Rogers is the essence of simple kindness and brotherly love. The casting is perfect with Tom Hanks as Mr. Rogers. The director, Marielle Heller, mentioned in an interview that for her, the most important part of the movie is the scene in the coffee shop where Mr. Rogers asks his interviewer to take a moment of silence in gratitude for those who have helped him. I love knowing that audiences are in that moment together of silent gratitude.
Very potent and real bridges of love and light to our highest good.
A hallmark of Mr. Rogers is profound, compassionate listening. One of the most healing things you can do for children, family and neighbors.
I love that Tom Hanks made an acronym for himself after the movie, WAIT: “Why Am I Talking?” That pause and real listening takes each in the conversation into the Power of Now.
Gratitude is a frequency of Divine Love, and when you are in your heart with thanks you are actually transported to the Divine realms and dimensions; you are in the arms of Love. When you are in this frequency of profound, nonjudgmental listening together, you are both taken higher.
In this place you may experience acceptance, inspiration, peace, support or, best of all, LOVE.
