We Can Only Imagine!

I’ve never looked to Dennis the Menace for spiritual inspiration, but in this cartoon, he nails it! Dennis is with his friend looking up at the starry night sky, pointing upward he ponders, “If heaven is that pretty on the bottom, think how it must look on TOP!”. We all have our ideas about what heaven is like, but we have been told in Corinthians “”No eye has seen, no ear has heard, and no mind has imagined what God has prepared for those who love him.” We know that something good is ahead of us. Wayne Dyer helps put it into perspective for us. He explains that we are really spiritual beings having a temporal experience. So this life is not who we really are. Our situations, for better or worse, do not define who we REALLY are. I do believe that we carry around a little bit of heaven within us to remind us every once in a while of our Godly indwelling. Our Divine flame burns within. When something or someone literally takes our breath away, we get a glimpse of heaven, remembering we are ”awe-some” beings just passing through. We feel this connection when we experience seeing the vastness of the ocean for the very first time, or when we hold a new born child, or being touched by the glorious colors and miracle of the daily sunrise and sunset. This life is supposed to be an “experience”, a chance for us to learn while we search for communion with ourDivine essence. We are on our journey back “home”….back to heaven. We must find some awe, some piece... read more

 Get the Most Out of Your Day

 “This is the beginning of a new day. You have been given this day to use, as you will. You can waste it or use it for good. What you do today is important because you are exchanging a day of your life for it. When tomorrow comes, this day will be gone forever. In its place is something you left behind. Let it be something good.”- Unknown This is our challenge each day. We don’t want to live our lives waiting for the “real thing” to come along. No matter what holds us back, whether it is fear of failure, fear of success, doubt, hesitation or procrastination, it’s time to say yes to “life”. Sometimes lots of folks never get it. They never understand how life really works, even at the simplest levels. Here is the crucial question, “Do you know what your life is all about?” We can find out that answer by checking how we are living. Are we living like people who know for sure that a loving God is walking at their side? Let’s see: -Have we stopped wasting our time worrying? -Do we welcome life with a happy heart” Are we glad to wake up in the morning? -Do we see how gifted and special we are? At least sometimes, does seeing our own giftedness just make us want to smile? – Do we have hearts so full of thankfulness that we instinctively work at helping others be as happy as we are? If that’s the way we are living, then we understand how to use each day. It means that we’ve been... read more

Finding the Passion in Life

“It’s faith in something and enthusiasm for something that makes life worth living.” Oliver Wendell Holmes, Jr. Yes, we need faith and enthusiasm to get the most out of this journey called life.  We are here to delight in the world finding joy in daily life, no matter what it brings. Sometimes gravity through the years not only drags us down  physically, but emotionally as well. It takes a special type of courage to brave the pain and to still find joy in life; to wake up in the morning with an enthusiasm for the day ahead. Life presents itself to us in many ways. Learn to recognize God’s invitations and respond with a resounding “YES”. Mother Teresa gives us some wise words to remember: Life is an opportunity, benefit from it. Life is beauty, admire it. Life is a dream, realize it. Life is a challenge, meet it. Life is a duty, complete it. Life is a game, play it. Life is a promise, fulfill it. Life is sorrow, overcome it. Life is a song, sing it. Life is a struggle, accept it. Life is a tragedy, confront it. Life is an adventure, dare it. Life is luck, make it. Life is life, fight for it. Use this prayer to keep that joyful focus: Dear Lord, Let me delight in your world finding the joy in my daily life. Let my spirit dance all the way to heaven for the eternal celebration. I know you will provide me with all I need so there’s no need for me to worry. Thank you. #passion #purposeoflife #SpirituallySpeakingBlog #MotherTeresa#gettingthemostoutoflife #life  #spiritualdevelopment spiritualawakening #inspiration    ... read more
