Sun Beams

As the clouds part, sun rays peak out from behind and beam down from the sky up above

Beams of light reflecting off the tiny particles of moisture in the air

When this happens, it reminds me that so much of what is real cannot be seen with the eyes

Whenever I notice this occurrence, I think of God

That God is always there in the air surrounding me, even touching my skin like the tiny water particles

Only I can’t see it

But if I’m quiet enough, still enough and aware enough

I can feel it

Sometimes it’s more pronounced, like a droplet of rain bouncing off my nose or catching me on my eyelashes

Sometimes it’s as subtle as misty morning air brushing by my cheeks

But when the clouds move in and the sun rays vanish into grey skies

Always

And especially when I forget it

God is there with me

Answers

All the answers I need are within me.

How do I find my place in the world? How do I find and understand my purpose?

First I must become aware of which voice is the voice of my being. I must learn to not identify with and allow my thinking to get in the way of hearing the voice of my being.

I must listen and have the courage to follow the part of me that can do no other.

And it does take courage.

Do I have what it takes to not do what everyone would tell me to do and take the road less traveled?

Instead of resisting what I know, to find my purpose and learn what I must learn to fulfill my destiny, I must to stop judging and resisting.

My purpose may not at this time be on such a grand scale. Sometimes it starts small.

I will never understand the tiny part I play in this master plan. But what I do can cause a ripple than can have the affect of a tidal wave.

By building within myself, the effect on those around me paying attention can be magnificent.

Maybe I’m teaching a future leader of many to love without conditions.

Maybe I’m teaching someone about small acts of courage.

Maybe I could be showing someone how to find God.

A smile, being there for someone, reaching out with love, a kind gesture, loving actions, raise the vibration of everyone in the energetic vacinity.

I can never know how acting out of love without fear will serve humanity and that’s okay.

All I must do is stay present to see with my soul where I should be and what to do now.

The answers will come, but not in tomorrow, next week or anywhere in the future where I will never be.

They are all here right now, if I only look for them.

Love

All I needed was permission to just love

It came from the one person in this world that speaks truth to me
And I hear it
She said to just give love
No matter what the result
Without conditions or expectations
To love them even when they may not be where I am at
That what I’d been looking for was already all inside of me
That it’s in the giving of love freely
Without judgement
Without care of what anyone else thinks about it
Even if the person I’m giving it to doesn’t feel the same
Even if they don’t have the love to give like I do
It doesn’t matter
Because it’s in the giving love to others that I feel whole
I love because that it what I am here to do
Because love is what I am
Because pure love is what God is
I get closer to God the more I love
Together or not together
With you or without you
I love you with all of me

And to me that is all that matters

Moments

Moments in time
Pass in the blink of an eye
Intersecting across time
Rippling across earth

Creating a divine plan
Changing destinies
New sacred paths
Actions not taken

Missed opportunities
New experiences come
Winding through each life
The present becomes past

A faint trail behind us
The voice speaks
To listen or ignore
The trail winds again

Tomorrow is not promised
The sands of the hourglass sift
Never catching yesterday
Would my soul be at peace?

No Matter What

If there is one thing I know to be true

On this journey towards the light

The one thing I need to always honor

To be able to live on this earth without needing to reach for something to quiet my mind

Is to live in and speak up for truth

No matter what the world thinks

No matter what those around me think

Whether people leave me or don’t leave me

Whether people like it or don’t like it

I answer to my creator

I need to have the courage to carry the message of truth

I need to stand in the light of solution

I need to speak up about God, that all knowing creative intelligence that performs miracles on those like me that have been lifted out of darkness and shown the way

I know that my soul cannot tolerant the false reality around me that most choose to live in

I have been granted a gift and my primary purpose is to honor that

 

A Single Match

Today I stand in the light

My light

A single match lit with it’s flame burning brightly

Navigating through winds and rain

Storms though dramatically breathtaking

Eventually extinguish even roaring fires

Shielding from the elements to keep my glow

Small and unimportant

Yet resting on such responsibility

Leaning against other matches to ignite the torch of awareness

Brightening the path upward and onward for more to find their way

When dark is only the vacancy of hope

Cold the absence of love

Emptiness the lacking of God

Knowing that place very well

This tiny match pushes on from the repeating the past

And finds it’s home in the warm embrace of truth

 

 

 

 

Just Allow God

My freedom is directly proportionate to the amount of trust I place in God’s hands.

The extent to which I feel responsibility over other people in work, family and friendship interactions, is a direct result of what role I believe God has all of this.

God is in charge or I feel it falls on me.

It’s one or the other.

If I understand that God is pure love, an unlimited force with a plan far greater than anything I could begin to comprehend, that what I would think should happen is extremely, extremely limited, then I can keep my eyes on my own growth and allow what is meant to be to unfold.

Sometimes that seems to look to me like chaos, unnecessary pain or just plain ignorance on other people’s part.

When I can let go of the self centered belief that I am responsible for others and what happens in the world around me, I allow God in.

I can breath.

I can experience peace.

I can be present in the moment.

All of the weight in the world can be lifted off my shoulders and I can be free.

Letting go of everything I think I know about the world and how things should be has been the most amazing gift.

I must continue to seek and surrender.

Today I will slow down, listen to the voice of God within me and do what’s presented to me.

Everything else I will let go of.

Today I will allow God in and push ego out.

All Things Starting With God

Everything that I have gained on this new part of my spiritual journey has been a result of my relationship with God.

My primary relationship has to be with God and from the solid existence of that, all other relationships flourish.

Everything in my life is effortless when I cultivate a conscious contact with God.

I can trust in the fact that everything that happens in the world around me is necessary and all I have to do is follow my truth and just be in the present.

I can listen to that voice inside me and follow it walking through any fear, knowing that no matter what I will get exactly what I need, I will be exactly where I am supposed to be and I will be completely taken care of.

I can be vulnerable.

I can say what I need to say.

I can allow others to love me.

I can give unconditional love to others.

I don’t have to play a character to try to keep myself “safe”.

I can be okay in the world with out “needing” anything.

When I stay in God’s will for me instead of my own, everything works out so much better.

The soul’s evolution

Coming to believe in a God that is pure love, light and goodness was the turning point in the evolution of my soul.

I didn’t have to work, manage or figure it out.

I just surrendered totally and completely and it happened.

Why did it happen now and not any sooner?

I don’t know.

My soul was just ready.

If I can see that about myself then I can let go of the judgement of other people’s journey and just love them unconditionally.

Everyone around me teaches me something if I am present and open.

If I can see that even out of complete dark, angry and fearful times when I could not see, that the most beautiful horizon revealed itself and tremendous growth occurred for me, then I can allow others to have their own suffering without attaching to that suffering.

I can have hope for them too.

I can stop trying to manage and control the world around me and just be.

I keep my eyes on myself and my own spiritual path.

There is a divine plan and all I can do is carry the torch, carry the light and carry the love.

From surrender and faith comes the ultimate freedom.
