“We are free to take note of the giant miracle we’re living in as often as we want. The more we do so, the closer we weave the fabric of an enchantment that is our most precious inheritance.”—Rosie Bell
When Greek geographer Eratosthenes scientifically proved that the earth is round, not flat, as it appears, I’m sure some of his friends thought, “You’ve got to be kidding me.”
When Italian astronomer Galileo started publishing papers refuting the idea that the sun was not revolving around the earth, as it appears, the Catholic Church not only said, “You’ve got to be kidding me,” but they charged him with heresy and sentenced him to life imprisonment.
So when I suggest that everyone’s true nature is love and that we are always, at all times receiving love’s gifts, you might scoff and think “you’ve got to be kidding me.”
Or at least you’d notice that that’s not exactly how it appears.
But I have discovered that if I truly want peace of mind and happiness that doesn’t blip on and then off again, I must surrender all that appears to be. I must deconstruct my every belief.
Just like the earth has always been round and the sun has always been the center of our orbit, there’s a deeper and vaster reality than what appears to be. There’s something a whole lot bigger going on than the shallow narration we’ve been given.
Cuba Gooding’s famous line from Jerry Maguire was, “Show me the money.” My line –or at least my daily intention–is “Show me the love.” Return my mind to the full awareness of the eternal, changeless love that is my truth, my home, my destiny.
Have a marvy week, my friends. #222 Forever
