If we are made in God’s image, and God is everything or God is nothing, then humans are a piece of God.
Some call it “the God within”.
If our goal is to seek to know God, to feel connected, then it’s essential we strive to be close with the planet, nature, animals and…
When we are feel separate or apart from other humans, we only increase the separation from God.
The ugliness we see and fear in others is directly correlated with what we see and fear in ourselves.
Embrace and forgive yourself for the dark, for without it, we wouldn’t know light.
Without bad we wouldn’t know good.
When we can see the God in others, when we can look for the good, the beauty, the light, we can move closer into God consciousness.
Unity means we don’t do this alone, we do it together. When you ask for those you need to assist you on your journey, you will be given those guides.
It’s up to you to recognize them when they appear. It takes willingness to take the hand of those God given to you, and allow them to lead you.
Trust in God and his humble servants to not lead you astray.
Shed the old that hold you back.
When the student is ready, the teacher appears.
I used to take words so literally, assigning very specific meanings, ideas and concepts to words I heard in someone’s speech or read in someone’s writing.
All these beliefs came from my conditioned mind and I never thought to question the judgements that came along with words, so much of my past influencing them.
It wasn’t until I had been awakened that I started getting caught up in my own use of words.
I still find myself seeking for just the right ones, but with so much history attached to certain kinds of language, I’m at a loss of which ones to use.
But there are no “right” words.
Because they are just words.
With this struggle to find words to describe the truth that I understand today, because of my old rigid standards and definitions attached to them, it became less about words and more about truth behind them.
When I listen to people now, or read or listen to spiritual teachings that use different types of language, I listen for what’s behind the words.
I pay attention to the energetic vibration or feeling intended.
I now just use words interchangeably.
It’s not so much about the language used.
For example, sometimes I say God, the universe, soul, spirit, being or knowing.
It try not to get stuck on one way of describing ideas.
I’m open minded and flexible.
It matters less to me now than ever, because truth is truth no matter how it’s expressed.
God grant me knowledge and power.
Help me to quiet my mind and see with my soul.
Allow my knowing to be clear and give me the courage and power to carry out your will.
Help me be loving and tolerant of others.
Please remove my fears.
Help me to forget everything I think I know for a new experience today.
Help me remain humble and teachable.
Help me to be in the moment so that I may experience the beauty and joy that exists all around me.
Help me to always look at the world with childlike wonder.
Keep me from retreating, holding back and being closed off from loving and caring for others.
Help me to be open to what is.
Keep me from being locked in this idea of self and see where I can be of help to those I may reach.
Allow me to release my past and who I think I am so I may grow towards who I am meant to be.
Give me courage to live in and speak truth unattached to the result.
God please just for today, replace my fears and resentments with trust and belief in your will for me.
May thy will and mine be one.
I’m so thankful you have come into my life
You’ve allowed my love in
And showed me how to love more
Teaching me so much about life
And letting me teach you about freedom
Every day with you is magic
All that I’ve ever wanted I’ve been granted
Your words full of wisdom
The way you live is what I strive to be
We come together in perfect balance
A match made in heaven
I am grateful for:
The awkwardness of first kisses
Baby blue eyes
Dinner’s for two
Trying new food with someone I trust
Thoughtful text messages
The moon by the pool house
Late night talks with giggles
Ocean air and the negative ions from the waves
Your touching my soul
Having known you
Allowing you to know me
Experiencing even a moment of perfection
Freedom to do it all over again
I don’t want to have to be perfect
To manage my environment to feel okay
Or be driven by false ideas
I don’t want to play it safe
Or be careful
I want to be open to new people and experiences
To really, really live
To be free
To have fun
To take chances
Fall down, skin my knees and get back up
To love hard
Be close with another
To give all that I have in me to give
To share life with someone I admire
And most of all
Enjoy the whole show before it ends
God exists not only in each one of us but in the space between you and I.
I cannot claim to want to experience intimacy if I cannot give up trying to protect myself.
The two cannot coexist.
I can only be in true connection with myself, God and others, when I truly allow myself to be vulnerable.
I can only be free when I stop trying to control the universe which will not be controlled.
My soul WILL evolve whether my ego likes it or not.
I will choose to be free.
