Here was a person who drew people to him with compassion and loving kindness. Who eased pain and suffering and offered hope to everyone. He was kind, friendly, caring and happy, what more could you want to be? Prescribe yourself a dose of happiness and be more Jesus.
The other week I was looking for a little creative inspiration and this fragment of a mystic poem found its way to me. I had almost forgotten that, we are, of course, all inspiration for each other. So I shall pass it forward here. Thank you!
'Be a lamp, or a lifeboat or a ladder. Help someone's soul heal.
Walk out of your house like a shepherd.'
The other day I heard someone say their faith described everyone as broken.
What a terrible burden of worthlessness to be laid on every
shoulder. And I felt moved at the thought of this to try and find an understanding of what we are.
What am I?
I am a part of
everything, everything is interconnected and I house a great sense of
belonging to all things and being of all things. So I am reminded at
all times of how we are all here, together, here and now on this
planet and while all things pass, nothing is ever lost. It is simply part of the ebb and flow of the universe pouring through all of us,
this precious gift of life.
And with this gift we have a way to find hope, nurture love, practise kindness and keep the divine in our hearts as best we can. We are not broken. We
are human. Don't waste time waiting for a miracle, be the miracle that your life is.
