Embrace this truth first, then allow it to transform your life

IMG_5745

There is no thing, nothing, outside of any us that offers healing – wholeness – peace.  It lies within us. The key is the ability to unfold our tightly protected or conditioned heart so it can release and pour forth its blessings on our life.  Our heart is sensitive and fiercely strong at the same time.  It embodies the presence of the masculine and the feminine qualities.  When balanced and open, it is the truest form of blessing on our life.  It is the miracle we seek.  It is the peace that passes all understanding and in all circumstances.  Nurturing, trusting, developing our own heart is the most important task we can be about in our daily life, because this is the key to thriving.  The transformation in our physical life is the evidence of this truth.  As we embody these truths, we can bless others from this peaceful place.  The energy of alignment with our true self, our pure heart radiates outward and transmits beams of love, joy, contentment and pure peace.  It is felt. It is experienced.  Embrace this truth, learn to trust your heart, practice living in the present moment and know that your heart can speak to you.  Nurture your heart, nurture your self.  Within lives the kingdom of heaven. 

A Better Way

Rose from MajorieIf I shall speak with every human and Angelic language and have no love in me, I shall be clanging brass or a noise-making cymbal.  And if I have prophecy, and I know all mysteries and all knowledge and if I have all faith so that I may remove mountains, and I have no love in me, I would be nothing.  And if I should feed everything that I have to the poor, and if I hand over my body to be burned up* and I have no love in me, I gain nothing. 

Love is patient and sweet; love does not envy; love is not upset neither puffed up.  Love does not commit what is shameful, neither does it seek its own; it is not provoked, neither does it entertain evil thoughts, rejoices not in evil, but rejoices in the truth, Endures all things, believes all things, hopes all, bears all.

Love never fails; for prophecies shall cease, tongues shall be silenced and knowledge will be nothing;  For we know partially and we prophesy partially,  But when perfection shall come, then that which is partial shall be nothing.  When I was a child, I was speaking as a child, I was led as a child, I was thinking as a child, but when I became a man, I ceased these childish things.  Now we see as in a mirror, in an allegory, but then face-to-face. Now I know partially, but then I shall know as I am known.  For there are these three things that endure: Faith, Hope and Love, but the greatest of these is Love.

1 Corinthians 13: 1-13    Translation:  Aramaic Bible in Plain English

Thanks to my friend, Marjorie for sending me this picture.   She took it last week, just after the first frost at her Georgian Bay ON home.  As she wrote me:  it’s beauty is still casting for me.    It reminds me of the love we share, although we have only met once.  It reminds me of the beauty of her heart and how we all have so much to give in so many ways.  Thank you my friend, for the love you share.

 

Living my Truth

If I am not living my truth, I feel it in every fiber of my being – it’s a signal – a call to make a change.  Subtle as first, but significant and shifting.  I thrive as I live my truth.

Your truth will express itself as your faith grows.  No one need convince you or it or of anything else.  It is revealed in your heart and truth always resounds with truth.

Magic

IMG_4911 (1)My dear daughter, you are magic, we are magic and they are magic!  We have just forgotten.  In our humanness – which in itself is miraculous, we have forgotten the divine spark that resides within all of us, mostly unkindled.

In some it barely glows.  It’s been snuffed out by burdensome cares and harsh teachings of hell and damnation.  It has been trained to fear, so it hides, not daring to let the flame leap, lest it be doused with water and the smoke burn the eyes and cloud the vision.

In others that spark ignites and burns brightly, but then a lack of oxygen, spirit, breath, or beauty snuffs it and it gets buried under the ashes.

Still in others wet leaves of the trials of life, floods of excruciating pain, burns, scars, cover over it till it’s not visible, not even to the heart that carries it.

But….all the while the spark is there – it never goes out – never extinguished, it is inextinguishable. Oh, but when the spark is kindled and breathed upon (inspired):  magic appears which delights and delivers and dances!  It then shines brightly in you, in us, and in them.  We are all magic, let us not forget.

The language of sound

The language of sound

Julia’s Journal, one year ago today.

This afternoon a turtle strolled into our yard, I read earlier today (The Woman Shaman) that the turtle is a healing ally and I recognized her presence as a kindred spirit. I went out and sat with her while in the grass and toned “I am”. I ask her if she had a message and soon I felt the answer. She liked the intonation and said, human language is not inferior, its just not the universal language. That language is sound, such as the buzz of a bee or the tweet of a bird. We enjoyed each other’s presense and then she began moving on. It was a marvelous experience.   7/24/16  @ home in Terra Ceia, FL
