You are vast. You are infinite. There is a wisdom in your deepest depths, and you can trust it.”
– Rev. Dr. Michael Gott
Incredibly grateful for my own intuition…
I listen to the whispers of my Soul, and know that the infinite wisdom and knowledge of Spirit is revealed,
because I am always a part of it. Answers and solutions always arise.
I trust my intuitive nature, and it doesn’t let me down.
“Nothing in life is to be feared, it is only to be understood. Now is the time to understand more, so that we may fear less.”
Madame Marie Curie
I am grateful to confront my fears, to place them in the light and let them be revealed.
Almost always, the fear itself is scarier than knowing what is actually going on.
So thankful to be brave and courageous and outfront!
I am so grateful for my knowledge that God is like an infinite ocean of which we are all a part…
All of us are swaying in this Oneness; all interconnected; all a microcosmic drop of the whole.
From this ocean upswells love, peace, joy, wisdom, well-being and abundance beyond measure.
I celebrate my part in this deep, vast sea.
“No matter how much we know, no none is exempt from the beautiful tumble through the thousand moods.
We burst alive, then slip and fall. We dart through the hole in the clouds after a ray of light,
to get caught in the storm.”
To be honest, I can be a moody person. Just like Nepo talks about, I can be residing in the light, feeling joyful and carefree
only to find myself quickly dipping into anger, or sadness, or blame, or worst of all, feeling like a victim even though I know so much better!
So, I am thankful to realize this is a condition of being human!
And as we each transform and clear our past grievances, we stay in the brilliant sunlight more,
shining it on the world. And the times of stormy inner weather do subside.
“I have experienced liberation from so many prisons of my own making
in this journey of faith.”
Rev. Dr. Michael Gott
Here’s to freedom! Freedom in my own mind and heart. I free myself from prison each time I let go of a thought that is not serving me,
every time I release an obsession or confront a fear. I free myself from my own self-imposed prison when I allow joy and laughter to flow when I get too serious.
And here’s to freedom and emancipation of ALL people.
I am deeply grateful to hold the keys to letting myself out of the jail of my petty ego mind.
