Quote of the Week

“Have patience with everything unresolved in your heart and try to love the questions themselves, as if they were locked rooms or books written in a very foreign language. Don’t search for the answers, which could not be given to you now, because you would not be able to live them. And the point is to live everything. Live the questions now. Perhaps then, some day far in the future, you will gradually, without even noticing it, live your way into the answer.”

Rainer Maria Rilke

Remembering Who We Are

June 3, 2009

Hello to Each of You,

"When we seek for connection, we restore the world to wholeness. Our seemingly separate lives become meaningful as we discover how truly necessary we are to each other."

~Margaret Wheatley

I recently read an account of a woman who was homeless and living her darkest moment of fear and loneliness.  She encountered another homeless person and felt such compassion for his plight she began to pray that help come to him and alter his circumstance, she asked to be able to help him herself.   She received the guidance, “go to the church and ask for help to feed the homeless”.  Immediately she began to feel fear that she would be rejected and cast out and this fear held her back.  She then thought of the man in need and somehow her desire to help and her compassion for him strengthened her to move out of her fear for herself and go to the nearest church and ask for the priest and request help to feed the homeless.   She was accepted and aided in creating a program to feed many who were in need.  She then was given a job as a secretary to this program and found her soul purpose.  Her life is forever altered as are others who she touched.

I found this so inspiring not only the desire to be of service to others as this offers indescribable joy, but the ability to overcome the fear that can arise when we are asked to do something bigger that will alter our own lives in order to change other’s lives.  This is stepping out of the ordinary and into the extraordinary, believing in something larger than ourselves to guide us to make changes.  When there is an answer to our call for help, and that guidance comes it can feel uncomfortable.  What will we have to do to help ourselves live something different?  What will be asked of us?

Facing fears that arise from change and how that will affect our lives; will we have our same friends, family connections, marriages and jobs?  Often the insight that comes can bring enormous changes to our lives and are we ready to have the faith that all will be well if we follow the guidance even if everyone around us believes it is “crazy”.  If we let go and never choose the courage to make the changes that come in the guidance we can live forever in that shadow of ourselves always hoping but never truly believing it was possible.  This is painful.

What if we knew,(remembered) that we were so loved we would never be without that which we need and stepped off the edge with that knowingness?  Would we ever truly be afraid again if we really knew how loved we were?  Could we believe in the doubt demons that whispered maybe we weren’t good enough?  Would we contract ever again with limitations because “it just doesn’t happen for someone like me”? If we truly remembered how deeply loved we were we couldn’t indulge in these illusions.  It is like seeing through a scary movie.  It just doesn’t hold any power.

Mediation helps us to see through the illusions.  It connects us to something larger than we knew moments before, more loving more powerful than we ever imagined could exist because we forget.  Remember again and go inside for the guidance the love and the Truth!

Just because it feels so good to remember again!

"I am so glad you are here. It helps me to realize how beautiful my world is."

~ Rainer Maria Rilke
