Keeping Our Center ~ Day 139

Well, folks, this is my last reflection as we head back into weekly virtual worship in two days and then in-person worship on September 13. My initial intent was to have a daily way to remain connected to each of you, while at the same time helping us all stay grounded and centered in something bigger, even as the world seemed to spin out of control.

Many of you have commented over the months that you couldn’t believe I could find something to write about every day. Frankly, I find that sort of amazing myself! Some days were harder than others, but eventually I found where the energy was leading and words emerged. It has certainly been a lesson in trust for me.

My biggest blessing in my now 87 pages of reflections, is that I found myself examining all of the little insignificant parts of my life for the spiritual messages they contained.  Every interaction, every conversation, every experience – the mundane and the exciting alike – all suddenly had the potential to be a reflection on the sacred. And isn’t this how the Divine is? The Spirit is not limited to the gilded, hallowed halls of sanctuaries, but is all around us in the grit and grime, the beauty and the magic of daily living.

I know how easy it is to slide through life not seeing and not hearing. Writing these many, many days of reflections forced me to open my eyes, my mind and my heart to the messages of the Spirit teasingly flickering at the edges of sight, just waiting to be discovered. Hopefully you now recognize that what I have done for four months wasn’t rocket science, you, too, can uncover the messages. We are not alone… I was not alone. The spiritual world is there for all of us to learn from if only we would have the eyes to see and the ears to hear.

Thank you for walking this journey with me. Thank you for the many responses, stories, questions and affirmation that you’ve shared. I know that we still have a long journey in front of us before we can say the virus is under control. But we are in this together. We have each other as a community of love and faith. And we have the Ever-Present Essence of Life strengthening us and bringing us hope. In the end, I know that in the words of Saint Julian of Norwich, “All shall be well, and all shall be well, and all manner of thing shall be well.”

Love & Light!
