Give Praise and Thanks


We are immersed in the Presence of Eternal Love.

Psalm 81:10

There must be no foreign god among you; you must not worship an alien god.


I use to think it was weird talking about worshiping an “alien god”…as though we would start worshiping gold and silver statues like in those old bible stories.

But the obvious point is…we have different idols these days.

What is it that we are bowing down to?

What…or who…do we make our highest priority?

It’s easy to start giving higher priority to the stuff of this world when God seems so hard to find…since God, after all, is a Mystery.

But perhaps God is hard to find because we have put all our attention on power, prestige and possessions…instead of on helping people, forming relationships and tending nature.

Perhaps if we practiced letting go of our attachments…our ego’s agenda…God might be difficult to miss.

A Great Love just might manifest in everything we experience…through all of our senses.

As Paula D’Arcy says, “God comes to you disguised as your life.”

If we would simply stop identifying with our thoughts and practice letting them go…we just might be overwhelmed by the awe and wonder of the Divine Presence.
