The image above was taken last year in September with a most amazing group, before the quarantine was even a thought. It is my greenest grass beyond a walled park and garden in a quaint city in France. Vézelay, in the province of Bourgogne, is my personal magical mystery spot… and I sense there are many more to explore once the earth has healed. What’s the rolling green grass beyond your “wall”?
Have we forgotten why we are here?
Do we not recall that our original purpose was to enter this plane to learn, to contribute, to commune, and to love one another? Hippie jokes aside, I look about me, with human eyes, and I see fear, judgment, blame, and accusations.
When will we, as a race, reach a point of higher understanding and let go of the ego-based power struggle of manipulation and control (to name a few)?
My wish is that we all arrive at and return to a place of “seeing.”
I wish we can one day look at our brothers, sisters, and animals (pets and otherwise) and see beyond their surface to the very essence of their being.
I hope that we can perceive with different eyes, that we can stop and see the true nature and purpose, of ourselves and others – and how that purpose fits into the overall structure and blueprint for our existence in the first place.
I look forward to living in a world where we give freely and receive graciously – a world full of balance and trust, mutual understanding.
I pray that through these words such a world can be made manifest that much more rapidly.
I am in love with this planet. It’s an eternal love affair. I am in love with its people, its elements, its gifts to us. At night, I look to the stars in wonder and gaze at the terrain about me remembering, “We are so blessed to live on such an incredible planet – protected, nourished, perfectly and systematically functioning. I am grateful to be here. I AM.”
Note to SELF:
Don’t forget that wherever you are,
Whatever you are doing,
Whoever you are with
You embraced by a love beyond human comprehension,
A love so strong it cannot be dimmed – the love that reflects eternal from inside.
Don’t forget that every person you run into,
Every bird you see and hear,
Every thought that you think is the message of your soul –
The very core of your being.
(Make that message a GOOD one).
Don’t forget that every obstacle is merely a means of showing you what you’re capable of overcoming.
And don’t forget that you are not alone,
There are souls all around you who love you and are here to call upon when you need it.
Just because you can’t physically see them does not mean they do not exist.
Lastly, do not forget WHO YOU ARE, divinely powerful, unique, beautiful soul. Step into that loving, healing, forgiving power so you can share it with the world with the greatest abundance, joy, and gratitude! Grab the rope, climb the wall, ring the bell, and jump into the world of your greenest grass, your magical mystery revealed.
With love always,
