There’s your conscious mind.
Then there’s your subconscious mind.
Then there’s your Divine Mind.
Your awareness, your understanding and your dwelling
In the connection, the oneness of these
And the all-providing activity of the Divine Mind
Is your source
Of form and experiences you can barely imagine.
Said another way:
Your thoughts in your conscious mind
And God responds.
Dwell in the positive, the happy, the joyous.
We so want to please others.
So we don’t answer honestly, truthfully.
We skew it to please (we think).
Oh - and hey - we do the same thing to ourselves!
We don’t face honestly, about what we REALLY want.
That we are far from victim - because we are able.
That we can trust - and believe - and move toward joy.
Time for honesty.
Time for facing who we are,
And sharing our REAL self with the others.
At the restaurant - meaningful compliments & gratitude to your server.
On the phone - a word about their gracious help.
In the parking lot - an offer to take their cart to the cart stall.
In the online chat - a thank you for their bright and friendly voice.
Instantly - you can help anyone on our planet.
All most people want really is to feel good about themselves, eh?
And how it ricochets back to you when they do
After your bit of love to them.
We have lost too many people we loved,
in the past couple of years.
We are still here to give our world love,
Through our grief and loss,
Comes the very strength we need.
Rest easy, our loves. We miss you desperately.
And therein we find strength to go on.
We say, “Godspeed
...and God’s strength upon us all.”
