We are not human beings on a spiritual path. We are spiritual beings on a human path. -Anonymous
To me this is a defining quotation. I believe that our souls seek expression through our material forms. I believe that our thoughts create our reality. Our thoughts create our actions, our actions create our habits, our habits create our character, our character creates our destiny.
In the faces of men and women I see God. -Walt Whitman
My spirituality awakened when I was a young child. When I’d close my eyes, I’d “see” the prayers people were praying as purple and turquoise beams of light dancing as the ascended from above their heads. However, I found no echo in the perplexing world outside for this inner life.
I remember being an alientated teen, a confirmed atheist, disillusioned by the hypocrisy I saw at every level of the church. This changed when I was 15 years old. I became aware of a pervasive loving presence in the universe, filling me and every living thing with love. My life since then, and my daily walk each day, has been an attempt to align myself fully with that felt reality. I experienced God’s love as eternal, unchanging, and always available: The only variable is how aware we are of it in each moment.
It brings joy! I wake up each morning happy. I feel the love of God penetrate me, lifting my heart, healing my body, and inspiring my mind. I smile and laugh a lot. In the most desperate crisis, my mind drifts upward to see the situation from an elevated perspective. In conflicts I ask myself, “What would Love do now?” I meep my mind clear of negative thoughts. I am richly blessed with an inspired life!
