Wake Up

Put your mind on pause. Stop. God is here.

Mark 1:14-15

Jesus came to Galilee proclaiming the gospel of God: “This is the time of fulfillment. The kingdom of God is at hand.”


I think this is such a simple statement…and yet profound.

Jesus makes this enlightened message the first of his preaching ministry.

Now is the time of fulfillment.

Not some distant time in the future…but now.

This is the moment when “the kingdom of God” comes to being.

Be present to life!

Each moment is the only time that is real…when you can experience the wonder of all that is…when the sacred becomes one with the ordinary.

Awaken to the Divine Presence.

Let the endless commentary…the constant loop of repetitious thoughts in your mind…cease.



Bask in the glory of God’s love.
