Today I chatted with one of my spiritual daughters. She is brilliant, wise, honest, courageous and beautiful. Like most of us, she is growing and I love it that she is willing to grow. So we always go there. Where's there? We go to places we KNOW we can't go with most. So it's always refreshing and enlightening. I truly learn a lot from her as I share my truth with her.
She's truly a revolutionary and like many of us, disturbed to say the least, at what we are witnessing throughout this country of the murdering of African American men and women. She was troubled and wanted to know what we talked about in Jamaica when we gather for a "Conversation" about the 9 in South Carolina. Rev. Jacqueline Atkins, led that conversation and she was quite skillful in presenting the facts and then leading us
in discussion around the application of meta-physics into this scenario. One woman in our circle knew 6 people who were killed that evening in SC. We loved up on her and she said it felt good to know that we haven't forgotten about what happened in SC.
I grew up Baptist and I was in church my entire life from birth to 18 when I left home. I thought, I will never have to go to another church, I was in church every time the door opened according to my mother. LOL
When I found Unity teachings, I found my soul and I came into a very deep "relationship" with Spirit. My life transformed from "the inside" out. I understood the Bible in a way that I could "apply" a story or teaching to my own life and the Bible really came alive inside of me. It was a part of an Inner Revolution.
My God was no longer in the sky waiting to clubber me if I did anything wrong. My God became a Presence deep inside of me and just the thought of that right now thrills my soul. I began to understand that I did not need an intermediary, I began to have "direct" relationship with God. This is what I teach in the Ministry God gave to me...Transforming Love Community.
Parts of me have died and new spaces have opened up within me. My world within, reflects my world without! I seek within and I never go without.
My brother taught me that the "Kingdom" was within and I found it and I am continuously letting go so that I can flow. My brother said, "My yoke is easy." Easy...stop struggling sis, stop struggling bro. Find the God of your understanding and spend some time in the Presence of THE ONE.
Just sitting in the Presence is healing.
You will be given divine guidance. It doesn't have to be "hard". Pain comes because of resistance! Just let go now! And, rest even if it's just for one day! Forgive. Forgive yourself!
The outer conditions are a precise transparency of our inner mental and spiritual conditions worldwide. Yes I understand what big corporations do to the marginalized throughout the world and I say, spiritually, it
still equates to race consciousness, group consciousness etc. And PEACE MUST BEGIN WITH "ME" AND WITH "YOU"!
I believe that outer conditions are the outgrowth of inner conditions.
I believe that it is time for all people to turn within to the God of their own understanding and to embrace PEACE. Calm the mental wars in your own mind. Calm the emotional wars that you have within yourself and stop blaming everybody else for what YOU are experiencing. Stop murdering people in "your" mind. If what you thought about some people in "your" mind manifested there is no telling where you'd be.
If we could just find just one thing to agree on as a member of the human race...I think PEACE is a mighty fine universal idea that we could all embrace. What do you think?
Tend to the "inner" revolution inside of you Beloved and the world will become a better place. Your light counts!
