Those of us who walk the spiritual path do it because we want to live with relative peace and calm. We want to be reasonably helpful to others. When our shortcomings stand in the way of our serenity and usefulness, we are off the path, causing us discomfort, irritability, and sometimes outright pain.
Peace in our land will come from the people choosing to love.
When my thoughts, actions, and emotions are all in alignment, then the doing becomes effortless.
. You want to be free of the COVID blues? Choose gratitude. Choose to shift your magical magnifying mind onto the blessings that surround you. Watch the blessings bloom.
The only thing that will truly refresh the soul is the belief in something Bigger than All of This. Bigger than the President, the pandemic, the social unrest. Bigger than the election. Bigger than limited thinking. We need a bigger God.
Humans are resilient creatures. We adapt – on the outside. What’s happening to us on the inside?
We should all be wearing psychic masks to avoid spewing our discomfort, pain and fear on others. Blaming other people or institutions (like the government) isn’t going to work.
Act justly, forgive freely, remain teachable. This is how we will continue to evolve. This is how we will effect change in our society.
Humans are complicated, they are layered, like Ogres. Maybe people are ogres. We hungrily devour those who’s words and behaviors are incongruent with our value systems.
Sometimes my faith is enormous like I’m ensconced in a fluffy white cloud, floating above all the misery. Sometimes my faith is small, like me.
