The Next Best Thing!

Life has this incredible way of offering us unlimited opportunities if we will get out of the blindness of our procrastination, open our spiritual eyes and see all that God and His Universe has to offer us.

This year, my younder daughter and I planted some corn. We plowed the ground, dug the holes, planted the tiny kernal of corn, watered it and waitied for nature to do her thing. Before long the seed turned into a blade and broke through the ground looking for the sun up above. Through the days and nights, it grew into a stalk and eventually the stalk grew ears, which we eventually picked off, shucked and silked to reveal a cob full of corn kernals. My daughter proclaimed: “I can’t believe that all of that came from that little kernal (seed) of corn that we planted in the ground???”

“Do not be deceived: God cannot be mocked. A man reaps what he sows. The one who sows to please his sinful nature, from that nature will reap destruction; the one who sows to please the Spirit, from the Spirit will reap eternal life. Let us not become weary in doing good, for at the proper time we will reap a harvest if we do not give up.” -Galatians 6:7-9

This is the way life works! Life is designed so that when it is working the way it is supposed to, it is always creating more of itself. Stop and let that thought sink in. God has created the Universe, so that it is always looking for ways to recreate and heal itself, by setting up opportunities for us to love and be loved.

It does not matter what mistakes you may have made in the past, because the present is always a new beginning with the possibilitiy of something better. Our Creator has arranged time, so that we may learn from the past and grow in the present as we live and love into the future.

The best way I know to make sure that we don’t miss it is by opening ourselves to God’s unconditional love and allowing it to flow into and through our lives, so that we then might be able to share it with others. Let the love flow and see how creation takes care of itself by offering you more than you can dream or imagine…

Give And Get!

We all of a sudden find ourselves in the middle of a pandemic and we get a good look in the mirror at who we really are. And just what does the mirror reveal? It reveals a mixed bag of selfishness and greed versus sharing and generosity. And if we are honest with ourselves, we often find ourselves sometimes located on a tight rope between the two extremes.

All of this has made me think a lot about who I really am and what I am really about. I’ve made an interesting discovery! There was a time in my life that I gave to get, but this is not the life I choose to live now a days. Some where along the way, I learned that the giving to get things just doesn’t work for me. The thing that life seems to be teaching me is: I do not give to get, but I do get what I give!

We are spiritual beings living a physical human experience. In this physical world we live in, when we give something away, it is no longer ours, even though our spirit teaches us that it will eventually find its way back to us.

What we give away Indus it’s way back to us, because of SPIRIT. What I give in spirit, I receive in spirit. If I give love, I get love and if I give hate, I get hate. Whatever I put out into the world is ultimately what finds its way back to me is some way, shape or form.

“Do not be deceived: God cannot be mocked. A man reaps what he sows. Whoever sows to please their flesh, from the flesh will reap destruction; whoever sows to please the Spirit, from the Spirit will reap eternal life. Let us not become weary in doing good, for at the proper time we will reap a harvest if we do not give up.” -Galatians 6:7-9

We love to play the blame game, when things are not going the way we want them to go, but whatever we have or do not have in our life is a reflection of what we have or have not given. Whatever we want to harvest in our life, we must first be willing to plant and the best way to plant is in our giving. What are you giving and what are you getting? Compare the two and you will begin to understand…
