What is your dream?


ImageToday we remember Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., a giant among men who dared to dream of a day when we treat all men (and women) as equal. A day when we step up to our divine nature and honor inside every person the soul which has come to journey with us in this space and time experience. He was a hero because he took action and spoke words that were aligned with lifting people up. And he changed our world.

Knowing that the same Divine nature of God that spoke through Dr. King is alive and stirring in you, what is your dream? How do you wish to make this world a better place?

As for me … I dream that every person recognize their divine nature and spiritual gifts. I dream that we look the deception of fear in the face and squarely claim our personal power. I dream that every soul finds their voice so that we all may “step up” in this world to bring heaven closer. It’s as simple as relearning to use the phrase “I am …” to claim all that is good and powerful instead of using that powerful phrase to claim weakness, victim-hood, or despair. That is my dream. Spread the love!

Will you share yours? Be blessed!

Consciousness of Connection

I’ve been doing much thinking and reading about human consciousness lately. My awareness is expanding as is my intuitive understanding. I find myself doing less “longing” to connect and realizing more and more that we already are connected. We are connected by heart, by thought, by trends, by beliefs, by experience, and by design.

It is in connecting to others that we find our unique gifts and blessings meant to share. It is in seeing what others bring to the game of life that I become more and more aware of how I can help them, and they in turn help me. It may seem that we are all walking around with our own existence, and as some say, starring in our own life movie. But in reality, it’s just one movie. We share some scenes. We share the spotlight but it’s all meant to bring each and every one of us closer together. And … closer to Divinity – by whatever name you use to define God.

I invite you to share your gifts more freely. Show the world the mighty gift you carry inside your heart. I invite you to partake more fully in the exchange of energy and love. I cheer you on as you change your corner of the world and acknowledge that you also change my corner of the world, because together we make a difference to each other.

Blessing and love to you my fellow wanderers!

I wanna see man’s divinity to man


One of the toughest lessons I have tried to teach my children (and, frankly to remind myself) is to act/react based on who I am and NOT based on who the other person is being. That means that my morals will rule, not theirs. My intended respect for the other is still intact, no matter how badly they behave toward me. Wow, not an easy thing to do but it is one that I think is so important, especially in these days when people can bully and badger without even being in the same room because of technology. Here’s a poem I keep in my kitchen to help me remember …

I have to admit, I’m appalled at some of the behavior I’ve seen from some people who I thought I knew. Have you noticed the nastiness on Facebook and other social media? No wonder the kids these days laugh at (i.e., ignore) their parents’ teachings because they say one thing and do another. Here’s a few:

> I’ve seen truly kind and compassionate Christians spew forth hateful words with righteous indignation because they want to force their beliefs on someone else. Not like that ever works, right?! And it surely doesn’t make a non-Christian want to be anything like them.

> I’ve seen people curse, damn to hell, and otherwise verbally assault politicians and their supporters. Yes, there’s a lot to be concerned about and some fundamental differences on what is right, but frankly, from my vantage point, there’s not a politician I truly trust in the end anyway. Follow the money people! But the verbal assaults don’t actually accomplish anything other than to show your true nature in the face of opposing points of view.

> I’ve winced at how badly people cross the line in order to “root” for their favorite team. Teasing is fine. A little smack-talk is alright. But threats and badgering is so not okay! But I’ve seen it and it makes my blood boil. It certainly erodes my respect for people who put a game at that level of importance and condone quite evil behaviors.

> I continue to notice that so many people operate in a “you have to lose, in order for me to win” attitude. That infuriated me in my marriage and continues to infuriate me now. Why can’t we find the place where we both win? Why does making anyone lose (face, dignity, safety, etc.) make the winner look or feel better? I just don’t get it!

Anyway, I’m sticking to my poem. I’m forgiving anyway. I’m giving my best and being kind anyway because it hurts my heart to see man’s inhumanity to man.

I pray for the day that I can see man’s divinity to man instead. I pray ….
