Daily Good: Contact with the Sacred

And while I stood there I saw more than I can tell and I understood more than I saw; for I was seeing in a sacred manner the shapes of all things in the spirit, and the shape of all shapes as they must live together like one being.

Contact with the Sacred

With spectacular visual images, this film reminds us of the necessity of connecting with the sacred in everyday life. It honors the sacred through sensory feelings of connection, with both the vast expanses such as mountain tops and waterfalls, and with the single dandelion sending its seeds into the future. This connection is further enhanced by the peaceful music that accompanies the images, providing an immersive experience. { read more }

“If you feel compelled to do something in support just because it’s BHM that you wouldn’t do any other month of the year, you need to sit down and have a hard think about that.

Don’t be a performative ally, be a real one.”

Inner Journey: HEAL THE PAST

“What you bring forth out of yourself from the inside will save you. What you do not bring forth out of yourself from the inside will destroy you.”
— Gospel of Thomas

We can transform painful memories by re-imagining them from the soul’s perspective of love and meaning.

Andrew Schneider says that all experiences have the purpose of serving the soul. An experience in the past blocked us because our fear at the time distorted our perception of what happened. To transform this limiting experience, we must bring what was then unconscious into the soul’s realm through consciousness.

We can do this by following these steps:

  1. RECALL the past experience that might inhibit us.
  2. OWN the experience (no judgment, blame, etc.).
  3. TAKE RESPONSIBILITY for it and the consequences (i.e., the experience was determined by my subjective perception of what occurred, dictated by my lack of wholeness — specifically my fears).
  4. GIVE IT MEANING (the soul was attempting to gain some kind of mastery or skill, but we didn’t know that at the time).
  5. RE-IMAGINE it from the perspective of soul consciousness (showing its higher purpose).

“Letting go of our suffering is the hardest work we will ever do. It is also the most fruitful. To heal means to meet ourselves in a new way — in the newness of each moment where all is possible and nothing is limited to the old.”
— Stephen Levine

A Note from the Universe

It all goes by so fast, doesn’t it?

One minute you’re here, and the next… you’re not.

…so really, you’ve got nothing to lose, have you? Nothing! You’re going make it “home” anyway. You’re going be exalted, and it’s going be so glorious, happy and easy.

Then, after a careful life review, you’re going to slap your hand on your celestial forehead, jump up and down with uproarious laughter, and say, “O.M.G., my thoughts really did become the things… and as EXALTED as I am here, I was there… and as easy as it is here, so could it have been there!

“I want to play again, I want to go back! This time I promise not to forget, I promise I’ll believe in myself… I’ll feel the love… I’ll keep the faith… I will.”

And, so here you are, back again…

Love you like crazy,

The Universe

Choice
“God offers to every mind its choice between truth and repose.”

-Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803-1882)


I looked up “repose” to make sure I understood this quote. In my dictionary “repose” means “sleep.” Now this makes sense. If repose is sleep, then truth is being awake, being aware. It is our choice to wake up! And here we are, learning and growing and contributing. We’ve chosen truth. Good choice
