Celebrate!

“If you’re reading this…
Congratulations, you’re alive.
If that’s not something to smile about,
then I don’t know what is.”
― Chad Sugg, Monsters Under Your Head

This month we are going to celebrate!  What are we celebrating?  Everything.  Life, joy, happiness, family, friendship, nature, our oneness.

As we go through this life we lose our sense of the miracle of life and how precious every minute is.  Instead of being something to celebrate, life becomes a burden.  But there is absolutely nothing “normal” or “inevitable” about that.  There is always something to celebrate, even if we have to look for it.

So hang on, smile just because you are alive and let’s Celebrate!

Living on Holy Ground

So, when we begin to realize that God lives in through and as us and that everywhere we stand is holy ground, what happens next?  To put it simply things begin to change.

We begin to see all goodness, all Godness that surrounds us.  We see the divine in the places, situations and people we encounter in our lives.  Life and definitely relationships become easier.  We seek to heal the divisions in our world rather than creating new ones.

We were created as part of one great whole.  The separation we experience is simply an illusion.  Once we realize this we can begin to heal ourselves and our world.  We can begin to love those we now fear.

Does this all seem impossible?  It isn’t, but it doesn’t magically all happen at once.  It begins one person, one action and one decision at a time.  Will you make love your decision?

The Unlearning of Fear and Acceptance of Love

“Love is what we were born with. Fear is what we learned here. The spiritual journey is the relinquishment, or unlearning, of fear and the acceptance of love back into our hearts.”

Marianne Williamson

God Pretending

Copyright 2017 by R.A. Robbins

“First the energy of God descends upon the Earth, then it pretends whatever it wants to be, then it ascends back to its source. You are God pretending to be whatever you are right now. Do you understand what this means? You have allowed yourself to descend, but by pretending to be less than what you are, you have not ascended back God.”—Thomas (Indigo Child)

We are Eternal Spirits

“My purpose is to help people look at themselves and begin to shift their concepts. Remember, we are not our country, our race, or religion. We are eternal spirits. Seeing ourselves as spiritual beings without label is a way to transform the world and reach a sacred place for all of humanity. ”  Wayne Dyer

Everything is Holy Now

I thought this beautiful song from Peter Mayer was perfect for our theme of sacred ground.  May the music carry the message deep into your heart.

It’s not how well you know the book..

“No matter what your sacred or religious book is, it’s not how well you know the book, it’s how well you’re in alignment with the author.” 
― Steve Maraboli, Unapologetically You: Reflections on Life and the Human Experience

Let’s get real here.  Walking a spiritual path is not for the faint of heart.  If you care about and see God in people and nature you are going to get your heart broken.  It will happen.

It has happened to me several times in the last month.  I live in a senior community in the woods.  The destruction of wildlife habitat and human suffering are common.

There have been several incidents of both within the last month.  When the most recent one involved a friend I was heart broken.  I shut down for a day or two and stayed inside feeling very sad.

Finally, I went down to the lake at sunrise and sat on the dock.  When I went within seeking guidance all I heard was “shine your light.”  Although that was not what I wanted to hear, I was comforted.  I may not be able to stop damage to the earth or my sisters and brothers on this journey with me.  But I can shine my light the best I can, stay on the path and keep on walking.

Too many people in our world are closing their hearts and shutting down.  I believe this is leading to many of the problems we see today.  So I will do my best to keep my heart open, keep on caring, even if it means being hurt and keep on shining the light of God in this dark old world.  Will you join me?  It won’t be easy, but it is our calling as sons and daughters of God.

If you have been in the vicinity of the sacred

“If you have been in the vicinity of the sacred – ever brushed against the holy – you retain it more in your bones than in your head; and if you haven’t, no description of the experience will ever be satisfactory.”
