Right Where we Are is Holy Ground

Copyright by R.A. Robbins 2017

“Do you remember Moses at the burning bush?  God had to tell him to take off his shoes–he didn’t know he was on holy ground.  And if we can just come to see that right where we are is holy ground–in our jobs and homes, with our co-workers and friends and families.  This is where we learn to pray.” — Richard Foster

To Touch the Soul of Another

The more deeply you understand other people, the more you will appreciate them, the more reverent you will feel about them. To touch the soul of another human being is to walk on holy ground.” —Stephen Covey

Content to learn

“In the fall of 1988, I worshiped God in a Buddhist temple. As the smell of incense filled the air, I knelt before three images of the Buddha, feeling that the smoke could carry my prayers heavenward. It was for me a holy moment for I was certain that I was kneeling on holy ground….I will not make any further attempt to convert the Buddhist, the Jew, the Hindu or the Moslem. I am content to learn from them and to walk with them side by side toward the God who lives, I believe, beyond the images that bind and blind us.”  —John Shelby Spong

I Want to Walk Gently

Copyright 2017 by R.A. Robbins

“Through life, I want to walk gently. I want to treat all of life – the earth and its people – with reverence. I want to remove my shoes in the presence of holy ground. As much as possible, I want to walk in peace.

“I want to walk lightly, even joyfully, through whatever days I am given. I want to laugh easily. I want to step carefully in and out of people’s lives and relationships. I don’t want to tread any heavier than necessary.

“And throughout life, I think I would like to walk with more humility and less anger, more love and less fear. I want to walk confidently, but without arrogance. I want to walk in deep appreciation. I want to be genuinely thankful for life’s extravagant, yet simple, gifts – a star-splattered night sky or a hot drink on an ice-cold day.

“If life is a journey, then how I make that journey is important. How I walk through life.”  ― Steve Goodier

Holy Ground

Copyright 2016 by R. A. Robbins

There seems to be something within us that is always searching.  The pull is so strong it leads us to churches, spiritual teachers or even halfway around the world to “sacred sites” on a spiritual pilgrimage.  We are looking for a place, that “holy ground” where we believe we will find God.

What drives us in our search for God?  Do we really believe that God is “out there” somewhere?

I believe we are born knowing our oneness with God and each other.  As we are trained and educated by our culture and the world we begin to forget.  We lose our sense of oneness with God and may begin to feel “lost.”

Are you looking for Holy Ground?  That sacred place where God is?  I have good news!  It’s closer than you think.  You don’t have to search or give anyone money to find it.  You are standing on it, in it.

The presence of God is over, under, all around and within you, your family, friends; even your enemies.  You see, the journey is not an external one, to a holy place somewhere outside ourselves.  The journey is within.  Stop, stand or sit quietly and breathe.  Quiet your mind, listen, feel and experience the presence of God. 

This month we will explore ways to remember we are always on Holy Ground.  Please join us.

Divine Love is Without Condition

“Ordinary love is selfish, darkly rooted in desires and satisfactions. Divine love is without condition, without boundary, without change. The flux of the human heart is gone forever at the transfixing touch of pure love.” ~ Sri Yukteswar Giri
