Awaken

We are all part of an eternal love story…so don’t miss it.

Psalm 90:3,12,14

But humans you return to dust, saying, “Return, you mortals!” Teach us to count our days aright, that we may gain wisdom of heart. Fill us at daybreak with your love, that all our days we may sing for joy.

God is pouring out life-giving Love in all directions.

Just look at all creation.

Look at the expanding universe.

All things are taking part in a dying-and-rising-process…receiving this life-giving Love and then giving it back to the universe in a constant cycle of giving and receiving.

The pattern is shown within the concept of a Trinitarian God.

Our Creator’s very nature is a perpetual giving-and-receiving relationship.

Are we ready to receive what God graciously gives to us and then pass it on…freely giving it for the good of the world?

Or are we grasping and holding onto the gifts we are given?

When we give of ourselves…we join in the Trinitarian, creative process that surrounds us.

When we give generously…we will in turn receive generously.

And when our earthly days are over, our bodies will die but our souls will rise again to eternal life.

This is an amazing adventure to those who are conscious to what’s happening.

Unfortunately, many are unconscious and completely lost in an ego-created delusion.

So when we wake each morning, may we also awaken to God’s Presence and give thanks for another day to take part in this Great Love story that has no end.
