This new day hasn’t fully opened for us, but we remain positive that all the changes that is happening around us and in us is for a higher purpose. We set our sights on the coming days, months and years for planning, not waiting.
Let me share a passage from “The Quiet Mind” by White Eagle
“There is always something beautiful to be found if you will look for it. Concentrate on beauty rather than on the reverse. This positive, loving attitude towards life and people is all part of the divine magic which we are endeavoring to reveal to you. It is helping you to perceive the Divine Presence, helping you to put into operation the divine magic which heals. Withhold judgment and criticism. The human way is to judge in haste the actions of others, but the divine way is to remain quiet and loving. You are divine as well as human and are here on earth, to learn to manifest divinity”.
White Eagle’s words help us remember that we each are on our own journey of discovery for our truths. The past year has opened our eyes and minds to experience a part of ourselves, and humanity, that has been an internal discovery which brought pain, loss, resentment, tolerance, strength, patience, adversity, kindness, courage and acceptance.
I am sure each of you will remember a time, in the past year, when these “tests” seemed overwhelming. May these words help; don’t think that the events happened TO US, but actually, happened FOR US.
We’ve grown, physically, spiritually and collectively. It’s not enough to say “look at the positives”, when so many of us have been through personal loss and turmoil. This day take your “glass of gratefulness” and give thanks for “lessons” experienced thus far. For the lessons brought us to this point in time......
You are directed by a higher source, God, and have the strength and determination to be the “light” that you each are. Believe that your purpose may not be known right now, but we will be.
Congratulations, during the past year, you have grown, you “made do“, you made modifications to your life, you became resilient. The inward journey has brought a new understanding, not a negative one but a “light” open to change.
I had done a sermon, while a student at HGSA, Asking what is on your “bucket list “; you know the things you do before “you kicked the bucket“, but my sermon centered on “Your Spiritual Bucket List“, (yes, visualize a bucket with angel wings).
We each have desires to accomplish, items on your own list, but consider what you would wish to complete.....before the “bucket”, maybe make a list now!
I’m not finished yet; I know God, Source, has some lessons for me and I remain open to all that is before me! Whatever life will bring to each of you, I wish you the miracle, or miracles, you so Justly deserve, for in the highest light of the universe, you are so deserving and loved.
You ARE here at this time for a purpose, that only YOU can do; never forget that your strength, resiliency and blessings will carry you through another day, month, year.
Trust that you can be your authentic self and know you are divinely directed by your angels, guides, teachers and BE GRATEFUL.
Blessings of Love, Light and Health for 2021.....and beyond!
I would like to end today’s sermon with written words by Renne Rhae that was taken from the Harmony Grove Spiritualist Association Newsletter: June to September 2011 issue number 47.
“A Window in Time”
“I meet you at the window, a window carved in time, it opens like a portal, sweeping us away like a whirlwind in the sand. Loving, Laughing, Crying.
Creating encapsulated moments that are moving us through uncharted dimensions of ourselves, while we struggle to make sense of the Mundane”.
