It’s All in Your Perspective…

Are you a Supplicant —

one who Receives from the Father of the All and from Mother Wisdom,

one who sits with open palms and is grateful for all that is given,

that which will suffice for Today alone,

One day at a time, without Attachment…

Or are you a Taker —

a Go-Getter, one who sees all as your oyster,

the field ready for the Harvest,

you are the Cause, and all Effect is your own doing…

Both are the same; though in one, at its root, there is Peace and Graciousness, and in the other there is great Energy and Force. The Universe does not change its method according to our own perceptions of it. In Perspective, however, lies our re-actions (how we act in response) to this Life and all that is around us. May we be attuned to our personal perspectives each day, and be willing to adjust as necessary, in order that we may be kinder to ourselves and to others.

Remembering

You can only straighten what is crooked, by first straightening yourself.
Hate never dispelled hate; only Love can counteract hate: Perfect Love, as Gaia loves.
This is Nature’s Law, and it is the way of things, as they have always been. It is the natural flow of Universal Energy. Step into the Flow, and struggle not against it.
How will you spend your energy today?

The Beginning of Love

“The beginning of love is the will to let those we love be perfectly themselves, the resolution not to twist them to fit our own image. If in loving them we do not love what they are, but only their potential likeness to ourselves, then we do not love them; we only love the reflection of ourselves we find in them.” –Thomas Merton

A Loving Kinship

A poem for you…

Big Brother Mountain;
Unshaken, immovable,
Overlooking all.

Father Sky above;
Canopy of clouds and sun,
Nourishing the Earth.

Sisters Greenery;
Brush, grasses, wild flowers, trees;
True Breath of our Life.

Gaia, Goddess Earth;
The womb of humanity,
From whence we are birthed.

Mother Starry Host;
Scattering the Seeds of Life
To all who’d receive.

Nonduality;
Unity, wholeness, and peace;
I Am as I Am.

Universe aligned;
Wholeness within and without,
We are, The I Am.

There is no wrongness in embracing an innate kinship with the world we see around us. After all…

We are star stuff which has taken its destiny into its own hands…

Some part of our being knows this is where we came from… We are a way for the cosmos to know itself.

–Carl Sagan

Our kinship and love of the Universe need not be an empty, mystical rite to be looked upon by others with ridicule or misunderstanding; but, rather, it is yet another type of personal allegory or myth that may illuminate to our understanding our place in the Universe. As Sagan has so oft-beautifully taught, there is much proven scientific evidence that points to our intimate physical connection with all of matter. We came from the cosmos; we are the cosmos, on the most basic, scientific levels. So it is only natural to embrace with wonder the familial kinship we have with our surroundings. It helps us to put so much more in perspective.

I am in love with Nature, I am in love with the Cosmos and with the Universe and all its inhabitants, from the seen to the unseen.

And this Perfect Love casts out Fear.
