The Angels remind us to make each day the absolute best, even if we’re not who or where we want to be yet. We can give each moment our fullest attention and devotion, with faith that each step leads us further along the journey.
In the great lapse
That is our time on earth
We are called for just one purpose
To do love
Above all else
Each and every day
And yet the act of being human
Obscures the path to love
And so we struggle an entire lifetime
With this one simple task
To do love
It’s love that will bring us home
Rebuild the crumbling pieces of our hearts
Love is who we are
Now and forevermore
Whether we remember our journey
Or simply keep forging our way
A spark of knowing as our guide
To do love
The Angels remind us that our journey is not set in stone. The many paths we take can all lead us where we need to be. Being open to the oath we’re currently on and paying attention to the signs of change will lead us in the direction we need to go.
The Angels want us to follow the roads toward which we feel guided. They may not all lead to success, yet they will all yield experience and wisdom for future journeys.
The Angels want us to know that peace is the journey and love is the destination. Anything else is an illusion.
There will always be dips in the journey. Low points do not mean the journey is over, or even stalled. Use these times to rejuvenate & gather your strength for the next leg. Reevaluate the course if necessary, but don’t allow the lows to deflect from your purpose, even if it’s not yet clear to you. Enjoy the ride for what it is.
The pain you feel is real
And oh so terrifying
Sometimes it feels you can’t escape
But I’m here to tell you
That healing is also real
If you let your heart and mind be open
In this moment, take my hand
I can lead you to still waters that gently soothe you
But you must choose to drink
You are held so dear
And yet, you always have the freedom
To choose your path into eternity
You will return there eventually
And hold the hand of the divine,
Your journey there is always your choice
The presence of both light and dark not only gives us perspective, but also fulfillment. When we attempt to insulate ourselves from the dark, it still finds us. And we struggle even more with its presence. When accept and walk through, the journey is a bit easier and we are stronger for the next opportunity.
This morning, and all mornings, I wish for you to hear the sweet melody of the birds, to see the sun peeking across the tops of trees as it rises high into the sky, to feel your naked feet touch the ground, to inhale the earthy scent of nature in any way you find it. I wish you this and more, as you journey through this day, this life.
A day late, a dollar short
what if you show up for the world like that?
Dragging behind you all your many things,
the people you’ve collected,
all the time you’ve wasted,
the world at your feet
and you don’t even see it.
Running this way and that
still looking for more,
showing up but rarely slowing down,
you feel the silence like grit between your teeth,
spitting it out like tobacco.
That’s our grit in there, they say,
our grit that polishes you to a shiny stone
and you cast it away,
watch it form a pillar on the ground
while you carry on with your unpolished ways,
searching, always searching,
for what’s already there,
available for the taking
