With all the hoopla about the atheists having their own monument next to the 10 Commandments, I just wanted to say something. I really don’t care that there are all kinds of religions, all kinds of people who believe in God or not, or all kinds of people who are neutral. In my book, it’s all OK.
We are all created by the same Creator and my personal belief is that is God. And I also believe God gave all of us free will. And, well, that’s what has gotten us into trouble sometimes. And then other times, we have chosen to do the right thing, help one another, forgive, and share what we have.
So, in the spirit of all that, if you don’t believe in God, then you probably won’t want to watch this video. Namaste’
Today’s photo is of wildflowers that forged their way into life through a crack in the pavement next to a wall. Maybe they “leaped into life.”
It seems that today, since it’s Leap Day, would be a good day to describe my leap into life.
It’s my personal belief that I chose to incarnate at this time and this place … Earth. I came here to love, be loved and to contribute my God-given gifts to the world. We all have them. And we all have egos. It’s the ego that tells us we’re separate from our creator and each other. Am I susceptible to the ego? Sure am.
Back to my leap. Why else am I here? I wrote a poem many years ago that answers that question for me. The inspiration and words came directly from Spirit. It’s just that actually living by these words every day is the challenge my ego presents. Egos aren’t all bad, though. They’re also in place to help us recognize and make choices about our personal baggage. This leap year is a good time to dump that old baggage, yes? I’m working on it. And I think that’s good enough. I have to keep telling myself that it’s good enough for right now in this moment, as long as I make conscious choices … and as long as my intentions are for the highest and best of all concerned.
AS YOU LIVE
Give something away every day … Smiles, blessings, hugs … someone else needs them and you’ll get them back tenfold.
Expect goodness … People usually live up to what you expect of them.
Learn all you can about nature in all its radiance … You are part of it; spend some time in it every day.
Laughter is good for the soul … Find something to laugh about or someone to laugh with at least once a day.
Receive all that is yours by Divine right with grace and gratitude … God still holds you in the palm of His hand.
Be yourself … You are like no other and possess great gifts to share with the world.
Love yourself first … You can’t truly love another until you do.
Speak your truth … Walk your talk.
Forgive yourself and others … Growth is alive in the act of forgiving.
Bless your children … Teach them love, not fear.
Live your wisdom … The rewards will be great.
Know that you are loved and never alone … Your Creator and His emmissaries of Light are always with you.
