Good morning, and peace to you this day in the Light. I must apologize for my extended absence, but hope the new year has been bright for each of you thus far. The world we live in is full of surprises, and each new day brings us the opportunity to grow and change. Life itself is change– endless processes of consumption and production, growth and decay, moving forward and backward. Many changes are out of our control, beyond the influence of a single individual. We can only control ourselves, our responses, our outlook.
We must observe constantly, take in information about the world around us and how we fit into it. The universe is a vast and ever-expanding web of interconnectivity. It is complete because we are part of it, and we are complete because it is part of us. What we observe about the universe also tells us about ourselves. What we do unto the universe, we do unto ourselves. It is impossible to ignore or deny our connection to the greater whole, and attempting to do so robs us of our strength, and our potential for wisdom.
We contribute our energy to the universe in everything we do, by giving or withholding, by choosing whether we will heal or hurt others with the energy we expend each day. Let us give freely to the universe, which gives freely of itself to us. We exist to contribute to something– society, the collection of human creativity, the food chain, the welfare of our families, the reach of our organizations– we get to decide every morning where we will contribute our energy that day. Let us make our contributions in the name of Light and Love, so the sum of our lives will contribute goodness to the world, and we can strive to make the inevitable changes of life an upward reaching track toward the Light.
Amen and namaste.
