Mt-Rainier

 

My post Mother’s Day blessing ~

To honor the mother of all: Mother Nature. She has fed us well with her bounty and her beauty. There is no concept of lack or not enough, all is provided for in perfect balance and harmony.

Here, I am surrounded by church. I worship here at the church of the great Blue Herons, church of the rainforest, church of the volcanoes, church of the take-your-breath-away Mt. Rainier, church of the Pacific waters, church of the old forests, church of the snow covered mountains, church of the year round blossoms.

All That Is made manifest in the veins of one singular leaf, in the grand magnificent design of even just one flower petal. How could I not weep for joy at all that you have bestowed on us?!

Well, how is everyone, as Spring emerges here in North America?  It’s been an interesting time, hasn’t it, lots of energy swirling both globally and individually. I’ve likened it to be on a rolling coaster ride, you coast, then up in the air you go, and whoosh down you go.  I had a dream recently where I was on a roller coaster and the thing you hold onto broke.  I told my friend about it and she said that’s to let us know life wants us to enjoy the ride, and throw our hands up in the air in joyful abandon!  
 
Be well and at peace my friends, even if the thing you hold onto breaks, either way it will pass whether we tense up or enjoy the ride.

A compilation of daily blessings: Windows and doors open today, the birds are singing – they sing of an unchanging love that takes its delight and form in all of us. I turn the channel towards your light, to the only constant truth that ever remains.
 
I love watching the hillsides go from just a hint of green, while buds swell, and then burst forth donning their youthful shade of spring green -then seeing the color deepen and mature each passing day to emerald greens. There’s a joyful constancy in Spring and in this Universe, this is the promise and the blessing of every new day.
 
Life, exquisite for its beauty and its fragility. A divine essence, back of all things, always remains intact. I cannot hold myself apart from that, I can think that I can, but that’s not what’s real. What’s real is there is no place where I am and God is not.
 
Where there is chaos, let me trust in a Divine Order at work here. Where there is change and surprise, allow me to ease into new possibilities. Where there is fear and doubt, teach me to live in – only this moment now. Where there is uncertainty, may I rest in the promise of new opportunities. Where I have lost my faith remind me, my faith has not lost me.

Today’s Blessing: In the night, when I awoke with fear and worry, I greeted my old companions on this road. At times fear, I have thought you foe — together we would toss and turn, tangling ourselves in the bedsheets.

But not last night, instead I lay there peacefully and welcomed you. You are the mind’s way of trying to help. You are not my enemy. I have no real enemies.

I have a Universe that supports my well being, and it’s got my back. I am a daughter of this Universe. I am changeable, adaptable, flexible. Therefore, I am one with all Life, as the Universe carries at its essence, fluidity. This is why Rilke once wrote: “just keep going, no feeling is final.” I keep going, I do what is before me to do with a grateful heart.

Today’s blessing: ah, the wind softly whispered hints of spring. “Be patient, be patient”, it said. The birds chirped, “It’s here, it’s here.”

My heart was content to be in the spaces of here and not here, for the only day that matters is, of course, right here.

A Monday, unlike any other Monday behind it or ahead of it.

I mark it’s radiance here — knowing, too, between these majestic skies and this fertile earth, comes the spirit of wind winding through the streets, upon its wide sweeping shoulders rides the next evolution of change.

Blessings Day 328: stepped outside on my porch to soak in the sun, and I sat there and breathed. Breathing in this sacred day. Breathing in my guides, ancestors, Divine Creator to join, guide and support me with their wisdom throughout the day.

Breathing in kindness, breathing out judgment, breathing in openness and willingness (two of my favorites). Breathing in trust that I am guided at every turn. I just forget sometimes. Breathing to the bright sky, she’s a beauty and her trees stand taller reaching toward her light.

And soon I’ll belong to the night and I’ll stop and breathe for the moon, she takes me as I am.  And as the night moon dreams, I am changed, molded seamlessly, effortlessly and surprisingly back to the still surface of a lake. Any turmoil of the day before is gone, as it eventually always is. Thoughts, feelings of the moment, those enjoyed, those not, they come and they go.  They leave quietly and without warning, when a sliver of no judgment enters through a crack in the door, and we are awash and renewed again in its benevolent grace.

There are constants in life we can count on, and one of those constants is that nothing is static.

In contrast to the bitter cold and snow across other areas of the United States this week, we, here in the Pacific Northwest are enjoying a different weather pattern; and, this is the inspiration for today’s blessing:

Blessings Day 317: praise for this slender day sandwiched between a Wednesday and a Friday.

Praise for the sun blazing down a few more precious hours.

Praise for the singing chickadees, the humming flies and the errant bee who have stumbled on spring time in January.

Praise for the me who flings open the door to an emerald paradise and joins you.

Confessions

 

Prayer-Confession1

Blessings Day 306: I confess that sometimes the world really is “too full to talk about”. I confess that I am blessed to be a part of it.

I confess that if I am willing to witness deeply all that is beautiful in this world, then everything else pales in comparison.

I confess there is more light than shadow, and that even the shadow contains the light.

I confess that the underpinning of this Universe is a loving wisdom. I confess that there are times when I have held myself apart from that.

I confess, thankfully, that if I press my ear up to the heartbeat of All That Is, it will always guide me Home.

I confess that sometimes I am moved to tears just in remembering this.
