On A Day Such As This …

Meditation saves lives.

No, really … it does … it’s just that we don’t really know when it has saved our lives because, well, we’re still alive!

Case in point:

Two days ago I received one of the most vicious, nasty letters I have ever had the displeasure of reading.  Over the past year I have had to make some very difficult decisions in order to bring my outer life into alignment with the inner blossoming that has taken place over the past two years.

I’ve spent years, decades, pursuing a closer relationship with God … but it has been in the last couple of years that a series of enlightenment experiences have rocked, changed, and transformed me into a completely new person.  So … in the process of making changes in my life … there were people who were disappointed, and even hurt by the changes that needed to be made.  I have to live through those reactions, keep my heart open through them, and allow those lessons to mold me into the person I’m supposed to become as a result.  That is the responsibility that comes with having lived with a closed heart for so long … and you can’t escape those responsibilities.

So, this letter.  I don’t need to go into the details, but it left me a sobbing, tearful mess … it came from someone I have a great deal of love for; hence the level of pain.  I don’t know about you, but things that go to such depths take some time to heal from.  So for the past couple of days my head has been whirling like a dervish and ringing like a gong all at the same time.  Consequently … I’ve been a little scattered.

This is what I mean about meditation saving lives.  We all get caught up in our personal crises and begin reacting to the events that keep piling on.  Yesterday I was so scattered from the emotional trauma that I was going to be late for a contract signing.  I started stressing out even more than I already was, which made me drive faster.  Before I knew it I was speeding … fortunately I noticed and MADE myself slow down.  I called the office I was driving toward to let them know I would be late, and then I switched on my audiobook of “The Untethered Soul“, by Michael Singer.  This put me in a meditative state, and the rest of my drive went well.  Had I allowed myself drive recklessly because of reacting to the craziness in my life?  Who knows, I could have gotten a speeding ticket, OR I could have gotten in an accident … or caused somebody else to have one.  I, or somebody else, could have died at worse … or at least had our lives altered in some most likely negative way.

Today, when I had time, I spent an hour or so meditating, grounding, connecting with my Creator, clearing my space of all the awfulness that was lingering … all the crap that I had been allowing to turn me into a pinball careening around the bouncing jolting world of Re-Action.

It is SO important that I just can’t stress it enough.  Take the time to take care of yourself … to meditate and seek Guidance.  God LOVES you … only good can come from being Loved. 🙂  That’s what meditation IS … allowing yourself to be Loved … and to give Love in return.  It could very well save your life … and it most CERTAINLY will change it … for the better!

Peace and Love.

Religion4All is an idea: that every human being (no matter their race, religion, sexuality, social status, lifestyle, or any other possible factor) is LOVED by God; just … as … they are.

We all are loved by God, and NO religion or person has a monopoly on it. Every single person on this planet is loved equally by God … SO many are cut off from God because they are told they don’t belong. God loves everyone … we ALL are beautiful creations … we don’t need to cringe when we hear the words “God”, or “religion”, or their judgments … God LOVES us all!

There is no requirement to change in order to be LOVED by God, or to LOVE God. God is LOVE, and LOVE is God … period. There is no one who God loves more than anyone else … there are only those who choose to LOVE more … to love God more, and consequently then to love each other more. In doing so, we grow closer to God … and know God.

By opening our hearts, and minds to God (free of boundaries like religion, or social trends); by LOVING God … we are exactly where we are meant to be. If we maintain that openness, never allowing any person or event to make us close our hearts, we will be guided by God to be who we are meant to be.

In that space of openness we can then live a life of LOVE, and be guided to where we are meant to be … forever in LOVE.
