The Leaves Drift By My Window

The leaves drift by my window
Falling softly to the withering grass.
They just let go
Without urging,
Without force,
Without resistance.

From the depths of their being,
They respond to the innate call
Of wisdom within.
Every autumn the process renews,
Freeing them from their burden.
Surrendering to peace and rest.

Can I let fall with the same grace
The angers, the resentments, the
Bindings to pain?
Can I receive the
Freedom of forgiveness,
By giving it freely?

I let go,
I let love
Guide each release
With tenderness.
I give the gift of freedom
That I AM.

Inspiration from Rev. Linda Dominik!

It says, “In the beginning, God created…” and then there is a nice list of things, including human beings. It doesn’t matter whether you subscribe to this theory, or any other possible theories about the origin of WHAT IS, this was not a “once and done” project.  The Creation is still in the works, today, tomorrow, and everyday in the fullness of time.

Except that now, we’re IT! As individualized expressions of the creative energy, we are the ones who bring into visibility WHAT IS.

How are we doing? Each one of us answers that question according to an inner set of values viewed in the light of an inventory taken with rigorous honesty. And then what? More of the same OR something different? The. choice is ours.

We begin in mind with the power of thought, articulate the vision with power of the spoken word, and move into the action of creation with our whole being. All day. Everyday. In the beginning…

This Sunday, September 17th!

Inspiration from Rev. Linda Dominik!

Many of us spend a huge amount of time seeking God, however we define this concept. We so desperately want to see God because we need what some people call “God with skin on!”
   
LOOK IN THE MIRROR!

Yes truly, because every living person is an individualized expression of God! Are you kidding? What about __________, fill in the blank with the name of your least favorite person! Oh gosh, might that be yourself?! For too many of us, it may well be, because we have been erroneously defined as broken sinners in need of saving! Well okay, not yourself, but for sure him/her over there because after all you are trying but they sure aren’t! Do you want the good news or the bad news first? Either way, it’s the same. It is EVERYBODY!!!
   
For sure?
Yes for sure!
   
In the book of Genesis, 1:26, it is unequivocal: “God created humankind in God’s image and likeness.” Not just the good/nice people? Nope, even the bad/nasty people! God simply created us and endowed us with free will; this helps explain good/bad BEHAVIOR. Our choices in thought, word, and deed bring forth the differentiation. Our Essence IS that of our Creator: all good expressing as love.
   
Well, there’s a can of worms with the lid popped off! Even that #*#*# who lives up my street or that _____on TV?! EVERYBODY!!!
   
So, now what do I do? Look in the mirror of life around yourself and JUDGE NOT! WHAT??? Hey, that’s my right and privilege! No, that’s your homework in the school of life! Accept that all is an expression of God! And only YOURS is your responsibility!
   
Find the nearest mirror, look into your eyes, and work!

Inspiration From Rev. Linda Dominik!

Jesus had an amazing amount of chutzpah when he walked into the synagogue in Nazareth, read from the Torah, and then looked at everyone and announced, “Today this Scripture has been fulfilled in your ears.” (Luke 4:16-30) Amazed at the eloquence of his words, they remarked on his parentage saying, “Hey, isn’t this Joe the carpenter’s kid?”
   
And we would have as well if it happened today in any of our houses of worship. When someone starts talking about being anointed (chosen) for a task, our first thought is, “Oh yeah, by whom?” And if they are really firm in the expression of their conviction, as in “I AM THE ONE,” our response is even more skeptical and tinged with sarcasm, “Really, who died and left you God?”
   
Why is it so difficult to attribute Godliness to someone? Okay, maybe one or two people like Mother Teresa, who did good works which society praises as noble and worthy, she might deserve to be called godly. But the rest of us? No way!
   
Except that all of the teachings of Jesus tell us exactly that. He tells us that what you see in me is in you too, for you who have seen me have seen the Father, because we are ONE!
   
AND OUR GREATEST ERROR IS TO BELIEVE WE AREN’T!
Change our thinking, change our life! Will we?

Inspiration From Rev. Linda Dominik!

In the past weeks we explored the person of Jesus and his relevance in the 21st century. His message remains current and persuasive because it is grounded in love. The world today is far more complex because of technology than the world in which Jesus lived; the difficulty of living in it is still the same because human relationship, in whatever era, requires the same commitment to truth, honesty, and authenticity in all of our human interactions.

Technology does not create a buffer between our individual personality quirks, or the way in which families interact, or communities or nations for that matter! What is required is unrelenting authenticity at all times and that is a risk. If we are authentic, I can assure you, we will get in someone’s face! After all, Jesus sure did!

But isn’t living “face to face” what life is all about? We don’t pass like ships in the night, we rub up against each other, if not physically at least emotionally, and there is the arena in which we are called to live the Christ Life. This is the life which Jesus demonstrated through His embodiment in this life. It is an authentic and ethical life, guided and tempered by love. It’s simple, and no it isn’t easy! But it is worthy of us as sons and daughters of God!
