I wonder.

Image

I wonder what you see when you look in the mirror?

I wonder if you see who you really are?

I wonder if you look into your eyes with love?

I wonder if you take the time to look even deeper?

I wonder if you see the Truth?

I wonder if you have accepted that you are a magnificent expression of God?

I wonder if you really “get it”?

I

wonder 

because

there

is

nothing 

but

awe 

&

wonder

when

you 

see

yourself as God does.

I wonder why you would live this glorious life any other way?

I

wonder

.

Thank you, Lisa Jo and Five Minute Friday Friends for this WONDER-full

expression of love we share each week.

Enjoy each moment of this Season.

Be present.

That is the best present that you can give all!!!

Be Still my Soul

  Image

A big part of my life is the listening to music.

My beloved, loves music.

So do I.

There is music in our home most of the day.

Most of the night.

We have no television.

A big screen, yes.

TV, no.

Last night was like any other.

I hear the crackling of cellophane.

{the opening}

There’s the whiff of rubbing alcohol.

{the cleansing}

Then, the motion amidst the audio equipment.

{the playing}

From the first note.

The first echo resounding from the psalmist.

My

soul

was

still

.

My

soul

was

totally

entranced

in

the

ONENESS

of

all

.

I was moved.

to

tears

.

It is rare that a song can touch your spirit as this did mine.

Each note

played

&

sung

brought

the

who

&

why

of

me

alive

.

I am grateful.

My soul is still.

***

Still your soul.

Listen

Tear Down the Wall {Experience} Grace

Image

Is there a wall blocking you from your hearts desires?

{Hearts Desires, by the way, equal Grace}

for when you abide in

Grace

you are living completely

at

ONE

with the

ONE

who created you

.

In this Oneness.

This natural state of BEing

you are guided, guarded and governed

each and every moment of your day.

In this Oneness

the questions are answered.

With

ease.

With

Grace.

There is a Knowingness

that not only is

ALL WELL

but

that all is provided

as

well

too.

Can you imagine going through your day with this feeling of certainty?

With this total recognition of support?

With this indescribable

TRUST

that the

One

who

has set the precision of the Universe in order

has set the precision of your life in order, too?

Perhaps it is time to look at what beliefs are blocking you from receiving this gift of order.

This gift of Grace.

Beliefs are that which set the motion of your life in order.

If those beliefs are anything

other

than

the

TRUTH

your

life

order

is

not in order

.

As you believe. It is so.

Examine those beliefs.

Take responsibility for them.

Let no-thing separate you from Grace.

From living the life you are meant to live!

Replace those false beliefs with

TRUTH

of

BEing

.

You are as originally created.

Perfect.

Whole.

&

Complete.

ALL-Ways

at

One

with

the

Perfect

One.

Allow this Truth to permeate your soul.

Allow this Truth

to

replace

all

appearances

that

are

other

than

this

.

Exemplify.

Glorify.

BE

who you are here to

BE

!

With

ease.

With

grace.

If you would like assistance in examining those beliefs

that are limiting you from enjoying this life of Grace,

please contact me.

I know I can help you

let

go

of

that

which

no

longer

serves

you

well

.

Grace {The Quiet that I am}

FIVE MINUTE FRIDAY
!!!

Here again

!!

You know how it begins

!

Lisa Jo

@

http://lisajobaker.com

gives us the prompt.

We type away for five minutes flat.

No editing.

Free flowing thought.

We link those thoughts to Lisa Jo’s delightful page

joining new & old friends who are doing the same.

This, to me, is one of the greatest joys of the exercise.

Reading the hearts of one another.

Telling them so.

SO

let’s

begin

with this heart

this

prompt

&

my

prayer

that

God’s Glorious Grace & Beauty

comes forth through me.

Right

now

!

Image

QUIET

.

One of my favorite words of all time.

Quiet.

It is in this

quiet

that

God

is

known

.

The God that fills my soul with joy.

WIth love.

WIth peace.

With grace.

With

COMPLETE

KNOWINGNESS

that all that I need is here right now

in this

QUIET

space

that I can come to

ANY

time

.

ANY

place

even when things around me are not so

QUIET

.

It is in this

QUIET

when the fears

of

the

world

the

fears

of

my

thoughts

are racing

attempting to

DIS-quiet

my

soul

that

I must simply say.

QUIET.

The Presence of God.

IS

HERE

RIGHT

NOW

&

As I call upon this

QUIET

this

Presence of God

that

{which attempted to}

dis-quiet

my

soul

falls away into the no-thing-ness

that it is.

I return to Grace.

The

quiet

that

I

am

.

Saying Grace. Saying Good-bye.

Image

The purpose of this post is to offer a new perspective

when

“letting go”

of

{relationships}

{circumstances}

that no longer serve you

your

soul

well

.

There is a way to do this

With ease.

With grace.

Knowing that as you

let go

let

God

you

allow

the

possibilities

for

the highest

&

best

{for all}

!

The three questions that I mention in this post are essential questions to ask

if your desire is to remain in peace.

In

grace.

I invite you to begin this practice in your life.

I invite you to remain

in

grace

despite all that appears

other

than

this

.

I assure you it can be done

.

The time has come to say good-bye.

With

Grace

.

With

Love

.

In

Peace

.

I believe there is never blame in situations such as this.

There is never judgement.

There is all-ways personal responsibility.

 {the possibility of personal growth}

&

all-ways

Omniscience.

Omnipresence.

Omnipotence.

We all have a choice of action when a situation arises which disquiets the soul.

We can accept it.

We can change it.

We can walk away from it.

Even when my choice is not to accept,

there is no judgement.

It is what it is.

Everyone is doing the best they can.

Everyone is acting in accordance to their awareness.

I can make the choice to honor this

without making the choice to accept it.

Can I change it?

That’s pretty clear.

No.

I

cannot

for it is not mine to change.

It goes back to the original thought.

The original truth.

THERE IS ONLY PERSONAL RESPONSIBILITY.

If there is nothing I can do

{within my soul}

to change the situation,

there is nothing to be done.

Period.

It is time to release.

It is time to let go.

It is time to say

good

bye

.

Knowing that as I do so in the spirit of Peace.

In the spirit of Love.

In Oneness with God

I

am allowing the highest and best to come forth

in and through

all.

It is in this spirit that I release.

It is in this spirit that I say

“Good-Bye”

knowing that the same

Divine Essence that I am

you

are

.

Honoring that which you are.

My heart is filled with gratitude

for

these

ROOTS

their belief in the

One

Power

One

Presence

One

Intelligence

ROOTS

This

GRACE

is that which has formed me.

I am humbled by my

ROOTS

.

BEing

a

personal

God

is

formed

in

these

ROOTS

.

May each generation experience the meaning  of Grace.

These roots.

Founded in this place.
