Repost: Freshness from divinity saves us from a rut

children-486980_960_720There is so much that is fresh and new and exciting to kids.  But what about to us as adults? Do we express the same vitality, joy and exuberance that children do? Many times it may seem like that kind of thought may be lacking. After all, we have already experienced so much of what they are just beginning to!

How do we bring that childlike joy, energy and enthusiasm to each day? I’ve found that gaining a new insight about Spirit each day makes me feel alive and creative again. It makes me feel whole and complete and excited about the day. It gives me fresh insights that break the dullness of routine with the spontaneity of Life and Love (synonyms for God). It also brings a fresh, new perspective on how to tackle challenges.

One moment of divine consciousness, or the spiritual understanding of Life and Love, is a foretaste of eternity.

We live in an age of Love’s divine adventure to be All-in-all.

It’s a joyful adventure! 🙂

My friend, Jenny, shares how she was transformed by Christ and able to see someone in a new way, which led to healing and a whole new perspective. Read more

What is my purpose?

 

What is my purpose?  Why I am here?

 

I think we have all had these questions.  And I know that satisfying answers can be found spiritually.

 

I am here to glorify God.  A friend shared with me an old Hebrew definition of the word “glory” – The reality of God’s presence coming to light.


Each of us represents the divine in a unique way.  We have spiritual qualities, talents and skills that are manifested individually.  No two snowflakes are the same and no two people are the same either.  Just like numbers.  Each one is valuable and needed.

 

Some might be good at math or science, business or the arts.  Some are analytical while others are more conceptual.  Each one of us is shining forth unique skills and talents of God.  And just as God isn’t limited, so we aren’t limited.

 

Though we might have a set of skills that we incline towards, we are also able to listen to and understand one another; appreciate another’s perspective or hardship; have the ability to live in another’s shoes, even if just for a moment.  This signifies another set of qualities: patience, compassion, humility, and love.  We all have the ability and capacity to express them.

 

Jesus’ Sermon on the Mount is really the essential guide for living.  It includes such important lessons as – go two miles with whoever asks, not just one; love everyone and not just your friends; expand your sense of love and life; expand who you allow into your circle; pray humbly and meekly; be sincere.

 

These are important life lessons.  They change the question ‘what do I do?’ to ‘how should I do it?’  ‘How should I think, live, laugh, and love?’  Freely, joyfully, and fully without reservation or hesitation.

 

All we have to do today is express God.  In fact, we can cross off anything else on our to-do list. Or, at least, write next to it ‘how will I do this?’

 

Our job is to be.  It’s a beautiful and lovely job, and is so spiritual.

 

Enjoy being you today.  Share your unique qualities, ideas, and experiences.
