As we travel our spiritual path, we begin to realize that the entire Universe is alive with inspiration; we begin to see the Face of God in all people and hear the voice of God in many places. This month, I invite you to hear the voice of God in ordinary things - songs, movies, even commercials. Be alert to your guidance.
Dr. Ernest Holmes wrote: "Not alone into the great comes the soft tread of the Unseen Guest. The arrogant have not perceived the simplicity of faith, but the pure in heart see God. The farmer has seen the Heavenly Host in his fields. The child has frolicked with Him at play. The mother has clasped him to her breast and the fond lover has seen Him in the eyes of his beloved. We look too far away for Reality." P. 41, Science of Mind.
I find inspiration in music; yes, even in popular, contemporary music. There are so many songs that move me. Some catch my attention, some catch my emotions.
One of the songs that inspires me is Natasha Beddington's "Unwritten" She sings, "I'm undefined/ I'm just beginning/ The pen's in my hand." This is true of each one of us walking this path. The pen of Life is in your hand. Your life is yet unwritten. It does not matter what is going on around you. It does not matter what your present circumstances are. It does not matter what has been diagnosed in your life. It does not matter what illnesses your parents had. It does not matter what your education is. What matters is where your attention is and what your imagination is building. Here and now, the rest of your life is unwritten and you are the one holding the pen. Are you writing the blues, a comic opera, or a lullaby? Now is a great time to decide what the rest of your story will be.
The song "Unwritten" goes on to say: "Feel the rain on your skin/ No one else can feel it for you/ Only you can let it in." No one else can experience life through your senses! Take a moment to appreciate the world around you. Feel it. Taste it. Experience it. There is so much beauty that we may be blindly walking past. Are you noticing all the good in your life? No one else can feel your feelings, think your thoughts, and see through your consciousness.
How would your life be different if you lived your life out loud, welcoming whatever is in front of you as the Presence of God? That life would be inspirational. That life would be intenselyattractive. That life would be God's Life and It would be on purpose. Decide to live it.
Love and blessings,
