Wisdom of the heart …


It isn’t the wisdom of our minds that draws people closer … it is the wisdom of our hearts.

You see, mental wisdom can be gained completely without connection – we can attain it through books and research. Facts, figures, and data are good and useful things. It helps us to understand, build, and develop the outer world around us. It is the knowledge of things.

However, the wisdom of the heart can only be attained by drawing near to each other. It takes connection and willingness to receive of the insights of another soul. It is the stuff that holds life, and lives together on this journey through time and space. We are not here by happenstance. We are here with a purpose, connected in proximity and timing to particular souls for a reason. Connecting on the level of our heart wisdom allows us to glimpse into that purpose. We see the value and gifts of another and how they intertwine and compliment our own. Connecting through heart wisdom actually changes the world within – it expands and evolves  life. It creates divine connections. It creates inner change. It grows and fosters love, which is the true essence of who we are. It is heart wisdom that energetically shifts the world because it is the knowledge of the soul. It is this wisdom that I cherish.

Share your heart’s wisdom and be blessed!

Divine Perfection – original poem


Image

“In the still of the morning, or the heat of the day,
it’s always the right time for you to say
the words that will shift the pains that may be.
Don’t hold back your best from those you see.
Open your heart and extend your hand
Kindness is needed by every woman and man.
The blessings will flow in every direction
Because you showed up in your divine perfection.”
~ Barbara Bernard Miller

Humanity Revolution


Today I saw a picture that included a bit of statistic. It stopped me in my tracks. Here – I’ll share it with you.

I knew we had the means in our modern world but it never sunk in … until I saw this. What the HELL is wrong with us? How is it we as a people have traveled so far from our Divine roots that we would think that this is okay. We have enough firepower in this world to kill everyone many, many times over … and yet we can all only die just once. Apparently that’s not enough because we build more, we threaten more, we bully and we fight more. Evil has settled into our society and we no longer see it as such.

And we also have the ability to feed every hungry child, mother, father, elderly and needy person over and over and over and yet we don’t do it even once. We share a little but only during disasters. Isn’t starvation every day a disaster?

My heart aches today. The way we destroy our world is one thing – a horrible thing. But the way we ignore, destroy, and debase other human souls is simply unacceptable. There is nothing but grace of God that has made me born where I was and having the opportunities that I have. I surely didn’t deserve them. I didn’t earn them. I simply have them. I have an embarrassment of riches and it is an awareness that keeps me giving whenever I can.

What does it take to create a Humanity Revolution? I see pockets of people in the world here and there doing what they can. We show our kindness in groundswells but I still feel very small in this. I feel like all that I do is but a drop in an immense ocean. How do we rise up in revolution to actually change the world, once and for all, without excuse, without boundaries and national, selfish pride? How do we let our divine humanity overtake the evil that wants to keep our eyes clouded or distracted?  I want to do more. I want to inspire more. I want to save the souls that don’t deserve any less than me. All I can do is inspire those that know me. I can only feed those that come in contact with me with the limited funds I have. I cannot solve this world’s problem alone but I vow, every day to save those that I can.

I don’t have the answers. I don’t know how to sway the hearts and hands of those that rule this nation or any other nation bent on war. But I pray that every heart that knows love will stand up and feed instead of fight. I will stand up and feed. Will you join me … and be blessed!

 

Gift of Grace


Over the years I’ve learned  a lot about people by observing how readily they grant “grace” to others. I surely have learned that there are many times and situations when the greatest gift I could receive is just that – a little grace.

I’m sure I’m not using the term in the same way theologians might. I’m not really referencing God’s saving grace. Nor his Divine grace and love directly, although I believe we have it in us to give because we are part of the Divine.

The grace I’m talking of is about loving someone in their weakest, ugliest, or most unlovable moments. And rather than punishing them … we let it go, on purpose and without malice. It’s about honoring their intention and the person we know them to be, which is good, even if in the moment they were not successful at showing it. That’s the grace I try to give, and I know I need the most.

So to all my friends, family, co-workers, and strangers … I thank you for granting me grace when …

* I forgot to send the birthday or holiday cards on time. I love you, I just got busy and forgot.

* I was in such a hurry that I forgot to look up and missed saying hello. I wasn’t angry or stuck up, just busy.

* I was in such pain I overlooked your need to connect. I could scarcely think of anything outside my pain.

* I got so excited or impassioned that I interrupted you. It’s my extroverted flaw I’ll be working on my whole life.

* I made a mistake and was embarrassed so I didn’t apologize as soon or as well as I should. My heart wanted to do better.

*  I didn’t pause long enough to acknowledge or thank you for your efforts. I truly appreciate you even in the hurried moments that I don’t say it.

* And so many more …

I acknowledge freely that I need grace more often than I want to admit. I need you to love me because you know that I am doing my best, even though in some moments my best isn’t very good. I try to make up for that when my best is shining bright.

I joyously, humbly, and thankfully accept your grace. And I offer you grace in return.  Be blessed!

Divine Connections


Since I wrote my book, MIGHTY INSPIRATION, Love Letters from God, I have noticed some things that were likely always true but never recognized.  One of those things is the abundance of connections that are made available to me. Now, I notice that when I identify a question, issue, problem or quandry – I simply ask for the right connection.  And usually within hours but always within days, the answer or person who can help me appears.

My friend laughs that she can “conjure” people up just by speaking about them.  It’s kind of the same thing.  And eerily – she DOES conjure people up. hahaha  It’s like the times when you think of someone and they suddenly write or call.  Or you dream about someone and they show up.  I used to think these were pure coincidences but now … well I don’t believe in coincidences.  We are all, always attracting to us that which we think of and declare.

So, next time you needs something – ask for the connection and see what happens.  It’s fun once you start to pay attention.

Be blessed!
