The inspiration for today’s blog is a beautiful and powerful poem that poses the necessary questions whose only answer is, “Yes, it must be so!” "What if our religion was each other If our practice was our life If prayer, our words What if the temple was the Earth If forests were our church If holy water--the rivers, lakes, and ocean What if meditation was our relationships If the teacher was life If wisdom was self-knowledge If love was the center of our being." ~ Ganga White
So what if our religion were each other and we cherished and honored the glory of our family and friends, if we respected and revered the beauty of all souls that walk this earth? What if? How different would be receive and accept one another?
And could you bring so much integrity into every day that your life became your service to others? Imagine how your actions would be affected and how your choices may be different?
Think of the words you speak. Could you speak them as though in prayer? Could they leave your lips and be sacred enough for the gods to receive? What would you say differently? How would they shower blessings onto others?
Each day we awaken on our temple’s floor. We are blessed beyond what we can conceive. What if we rose each day and strode across this temple floor with the utmost awe and wonder of its majestic beauty and we tended it with the loving care that would carry it for all universal time? Imagine the spires of the trees rising to the heavens bringing our prayers into the realms beyond our reach. See the waters as the cleansing and purifying tonics of life that we can sip from to replenish our tired soul and wash away the wounds of old and then splash with delight in as we celebrate its flow of life.
What if we relied more on our own personal lessons as the instructive gifts and not seek teacher after teacher to show us the way? What if our inner truth and authentic story held the wisdom of our path and we only needed to be present and live within the moment to learn fully what is being offered for our progress, growth and fulfillment?
Can you see yourself as love, not simply being loved or offering love? What if love were the core of your essence and everything that emanated from it became love, sought to love and brought back love. Imagine!
Yes, the only answer can be, Yes, it must be so! Blessings ~ Lisa
