THE LIGHT

It is always darkest before the light, is a phrase I have heard many times before. In the darkness is where new life is formed and created. Do not be fooled by the darkness and think it will always be dark. The Light is just on the other side, it is the opposite of the darkness.

Some people give up while in the darkest of times. Perhaps they give up just before the dream is realized. Perhaps the dream is at its last stage of development and of becoming a reality. But if you give up too soon you will never know if the dream was possible. Believe it is always possible. It may not come when you think it should, but it will surely come into full manifestation. Hold on through the darkest hours. When you get to the point of almost being exactly where you want to be, please do not give up. Wait! Trust the process and garner all the Faith you can and keep going.

The Light is always shining, although sometime it may be hiding behind a cloud or other obstruction. The Light is where dreams are realized. The Light is the place you truly desire to be. Go to The Light. Do not become discouraged by a temporary dark spell. Something is growing in the darkness. Plants grow below the surface of the ground in complete darkness. Film is developed in a dark room into beautiful pictures. There is wonder in the darkness. We get to rest in the darkness.

Just as a new day is born from a night of darkness so will your hopes and dreams manifest for you out of the darkest hours. The darkness builds character and stamina, both qualities you will require in the pursuit of realizing your goals. Welcome the quietness of the dark times. Be kind and loving to yourself during this period of time. Your energy level may be low and needs to be replenished. This is good because you cannot function on high octane constantly. You require rest. Be grateful for all things, all the time.

THE LIGHT IS ALWAYS SHINING. You just might not be able to see it clearly with your human eyes.

LEAN TOWARDS THE LIGHT

SAM_0561

Have you ever watched a house plant grow? The other day as I watered my numerous house plants, I was observant of how they grow towards the sun-light. It made me stop and think about how this same illustration can be used in describing human life. With the house plants, I rotate them regularly so they get even exposure to the light source. New life is always the result of allowing evenly distributed light to the plants.

As with a house plant, there may be areas of your life that need to be rotated and exposed to The Light! Sometimes we can restrict what area of our lives we give freely to the Light of God, while we reserve other areas for our exclusive control. Why not give everything over to God to heal and harmonize?

Allow the Light of The Most High to drench all areas of your life and affairs. Nothing is ever too big nor too small for the Light of Understanding and pure Unconditional Love to touch and make better. Even the little part that you are somehow ashamed of can be given over to Infinite Source.

Watch the new growth take form and prosper. Watch the new leaves of your life spring forth with Joy and Excitement for exposing them to The Light. Give the total YOU access to The Light. You will be pleased with what happens in your life. You will notice new leaves that you thought were not possible. Old leaves will wither and you can discard them, this allows for new growth.

Do not be concerned when you need to repot the plant, your life! You will outgrow the pot of your previous existence merely because you have allowed the full Light of God to shine brightly and evenly on every area of your life. You will be fruitful and you will multiply, the Goodness of God in all that you do.

TODAY….LEAN TOWARDS THE LIGHT!!!

JOY

June 1st

This is a month of JOY! I love it!!! JOY – JOY – JOY!!!

I have JOY way down deep inside of me. JOY floods my heart, my core. JOY is in the morrow of my bones. JOY is in the cells of my skin! JOY – JOY – JOY!

God has poured this wonderful energy of JOY into me. None other could give me such an incredibly remarkable feeling. Like the song says, ‘The world didn’t give it and the world can’t take it away.’

JOY is from The Creator! We receive JOY as a gift! All I know to do is to treasure this feeling of absolute contentment. It feels like rain slowly trickling down my face. It feels like the comfort of fresh sheets on my bed. It feels like the huge warm hug from a child. It’s amazingly sensuous. I have JOY in the roots of my being!

God granted me JOY to experience this life with unconditional Love. JOY seeks Love in its purest state. JOY finds Peace in every encounter. JOY is Harmony in grand style. JOY simply is my preferred state of being.

I shout aloud my Gratitude for this indwelling JOY! Oh Thanks God for this awesome phenomenal gift. I sing Praises to The Most High. I AM filled to overflowing with JOY! Thanks Allah for this dynamic treasure. My heart is filled with Thanksgiving. I know it is from The Source because it is absolutely complete within itself. I need nothing else when JOY is present in my life!

O, Thanks God. Thanks, Thanks, Thanks!!!
Hallelujah, Hallelujah, Hallelujah!!!
Amen, Amen, Amen!!!
Praises, Praises, Praises!!!

WHEN GOD SPEAKS TO YOU

#WHEN GOD SPEAKS TO YOU, #at your inception, #our teahcers, @self worth, #validation, #worthiness, #self-empowerment

May 18th

At your inception, God breathed the gift of life into you. You were immediately filled with all the knowledge you needed to live a productive and joyous life. God poured All Wisdom, Love, Compassion and Joy into the very fiber of your being. At your birth you were pure.

As we grow our teachers become many. Many are there to teach us how to behave in this society. Sometimes the fears of others are passed on to us, usually out of love for us. We are told what is and is not acceptable behavior. We are constantly fed thoughts that tell us we are wrong and must act a certain way to be okay. Then we go to school and we receive additional messages regarding our self worth. The whole process is neither good nor bad, it just is or has been. Along the way, we lose our sense of self and begin looking for outside influences to tell us we are okay. We attend colleges and universities. We search out all the self empowerment and self improvement programs that are available. We have accepted this false notion that something in us needs to be corrected and someone else is authorized and better equipped to tell us how to do it.

When God speaks to us, it is our own voice that we hear. God lives in our heart and so no doubt when God speaks it is through our very soul that the communication occurs. We hear our own voice, but it sounds so rational and wise. The voice is clear and audible. But then again we have been told that if we talk to ourselves we are crazy. Yet who knows YOUR story better than you? Who can feel exactly what you feel about any given situation?

All of your answers are already given to you. You DO know the right thing to do for yourself. You are in direct communication with God at all times. It is your responsibility to connect and get your answers, to ask and receive from the storehouse of the Almighty! God wants to talk directly with you. There is never a need for an interpreter or a go between. You got the direct link! God speaks to us when we are ready to listen. Thanks God. So Be It! When God speaks to us…..

MOTHER MAY I?

SAM_0495

May 6th

Do you remember the childhood game of Mother May I? It is where a group of children gets together and form a circle. One person is chosen to be the leader. The leader gives instructions to the group and if anyone moves before asking Mother May I, they lose and go back to the beginning mark. It is a game children played, asking permission from the person who they identified as being the leader.

As an adult the leader’s name has changed to God. So I ask and wait for an answer. I do not force an answer. I wait or I may possibly be told to go back to the beginning point of the game. Neither do I move without asking first. In my asking I am acknowledging the Head of my life. I am saying, I think I heard the direction, the guidance, the instructions yet I desire to be clear about my next move. God May I?

In prayer and meditation I ask The Source for confirmation. I seek and I wait. I realize that sometimes I can become impatient and want to move ahead before receiving an answer. Not being obedient is no longer an option. I desire for my next step to be governed by My Leader. I ask to seek clarity. I wait trusting that all is working out just as it should, according to The Masters Plan for my life.

God’s answers are always very specific. Yes you may is the answer I wait to hear before proceeding to the next step. When the answer, as I perceive it, is delayed I sit and be still. This can sometimes be a very nervous time for me because I want to move now and not later. Do I dare risk the cost of starting from the beginning yet again? I think not! In due time and season I move.

God is blessing me right now! I joyously receive my Spiritual answers.

GOD MAY I? …… YES YOU MAY!!!

23rd PSALMS

March 31st

Sometimes we need to personalize scripture and other writings so they have more impact for us. I am sharing my version of the 23rd Psalms which is one of my favorites. You can do this for yourself, it does not affect nor distract from the original writings. It simply adds special meaning for you.

23rd Psalms

God is my Source!

I already have everything I desire (I only need to see it and believe it).

My lavish garden is Peace-filled; in my stillness, my strength is enriched and increased.

I trust God.

God’s Grace is sufficient.

When fear knocks, my Faith does not answer the door.

God’s Mercy sustains me, carries me through all valley experiences.

As I call forth into being (as I recognize) the bountiful Blessings of my rich inheritance from God’s storehouse –
my life overflows with prosperity and abundance!

I am accompanied by goodness and kindness, everywhere I go, because; God dwells inside of me!

Amen.

HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO MY BROTHER RUDY O. BROWN, WHO DIED IN 1980. I LOVE YOU

NO REGRETS

DSC00745

March 22nd

Live today so tomorrow you can look back and say ‘I have NO regrets.’

Live today as fully and completely as you can. Allow yourself to have fun and celebrate living. Laugh hard! Do you feel like dancing? Then just do it. You do not have to go somewhere to dance, dance by yourself in your home. Dance with your children, dance with your mate. If you feel like dancing, just dance. Dance until your legs and feet hurt. Dance like no one is watching. Dance like you are a Dance Instructor.

Live today in total Joy and happiness. Show your unconditional Love to someone. Just Love them to love them, expect nothing in return. Cast a spell of Love into the Universe. Just send it out, extend your arms and hands and say, “I send LOVE out to every living thing NOW”. Doesn’t that feel wonderful?

I live today as if there is no tomorrow. I live today to the fullest extend I can in Harmony, Peace, Joy, Passion and Compassion. I share a warm smile with each person I pass today. I say a kind word to others, everywhere I go today.

I choose to live this day in absolute abandon of what others will think of me. Perhaps they will catch it and live today more fully. I am only responsible for my actions. I enjoy this totally ‘free gift of life’ right now. I am alive and eager to love today with no regrets.

When tomorrow comes I will smile a big wide grin and say to myself,

‘I have no regrets.’

LOVE YOU

January 9th

Today Love YOU more than ever before. Be extra kind and gentle with yourself. Have you made a resolution that you have not been able to keep? Let it go! Let yourself off the hook. Decide today you will not judge yourself. Decide that wherever you are, the place is precisely perfect for YOU!!

This day I will love me like never before. I will sing a song of Joy and Peace. Whether it is rap, jazz, blues, country, funk, an oldie, rock and roll or gospel, I will sing all day telling the Universe I am happy and joyous. I am liberated from my former fears and pains. Today is a day of celebration. I celebrate my life in fullness and gratitude.

On this day I commit to treating myself with dignity and respect. I absolutely love and treasure who I have become. I am extremely excited about who I am growing to be. I fill myself with complete acceptance of me.

In prayer and meditation, I release all harsh judgments about the conditions around me and accept them just as they are. I may desire a change, and if that is the case, I work towards improving those things. I think differently. I think positively on the newness I desire to manifest. I accept the responsibility of my thoughts and acknowledge how my thoughts can affect the physical manifestations seen in my world.

This day is received in awe. I see a new world and love it! I extend unconditional Love to myself the entire day. I accept with appreciation the life I live. Today I simply Love ME!

MORE THAN MONEY

SAM_1146

November 16th

 God is more than money is what I was told by Mother Elnor Abdullah. This simple yet eloquent statement stopped my thoughts. What does she mean by this? Our Elders are always gifting us with wisdom when we allow them to.

Sometimes we confine our prayer request, to Infinite Source, to financial matters. Sometimes we get lost in the support we feel we need and it is not readily present. Or is it? As we have learned from various teachers, what we focus on we will attract into our life. Now it becomes another question all together, where is your focus?

When I allow myself to stay centered and focused on the Goodness of God, Blessings seem to quickly manifest in my life. I have accepted that God and I are actually more than money and it puts a different energy around that necessary component of living. When I can take importance away from money and place my complete attention on the Goodness of God, it loses its hold on my thoughts.

As with money, so with relationships; when we think that God is only in the business of providing us with a perfect mate, then once again we are limiting God. Or when we discount the rains in favor of the sun always shining, both are provided by God for us.

I give Thanks to Infinite Intelligence for opening my mind to thinking a new thought about the things of life. I am grateful that I can see what is really important. Life and Love, Peace and Passion, Compassion and Care, Forgiveness are the key essentials of life. These are all free to us by virtue of The Supreme Being.

Next time you think that you can limit God, rethink your options.

God is more than money. God is the substance of life!

Thanks God.
