” I thank you God for this most amazing day, for the leaping greenly spirits of the trees, and for the blue dream of sky and for everything which is natural, which is infinite, which is yes.” E.E. Cummings
We look upward when we are feeling down. We look upward to pray, we look to the details of nature, of God, of the infinate makings of our Creator to sooth our weary feelings and thoughts.
These are indeed troubled times. Dissent, disease, departmental thinking defying logic, all barriers to seeing a ” bluer sky.” We hasten to judge, we want security and yet find it hard to find in an ever evolving space of time. We yearn for times when our minds believe it was easier…less discord, more love, more togetherness, less fighting and more cooperation. I remember those times as well….and yet, as time passes, as life evolves, even in those “better times” we had to find the GOOD, we still had to seek the better part of ourselves to live day to day. So I ask you….WHY is it so hard today?
I am on several prayer lists, and the requests are endless….comfort, courage, healing, action, decisions, grace, mercy….to name but a few. Have those requests changed over the years? I think not. Have we come to realize that we actually NEED GOD, JESUS and the HOLY SPIRIT in our lives? Are we finally, in these troubled times realizing that we need something BIGGER than ourselves to help us….that we are not entities all alone? I wonder.
All religions across the globe have their own sense of beliefs that there is a “higher source” for living. I use the Christian terms because I am Christian, but to those reading that are not, whatever your belief, I think it is time, if you have not, to call out to those N\Higher Powers and plead, not ask, for their assistance today.
WE NEED LOVE. WE NEED GRACE. WE NEED COMFORT. WE NEED SECURITY. WE ARE A SCARED WORLD and NEED.
SO, we look upward. We MUST continue to pray, to meditate to ask the Universe to help heal us, broken as we are. We need to regain Trust in humanity, to gain trust in each other, to restore civility in all areas of our lives. We NEED to restore compassion and most of all LOVE.
Wherever you are today, LOOK UPWARD….Look at the infinite details of the sky, the clouds, the perfections of each and remember, you too are a part of this creation. Pray that we can again look to Blue Skies with the reverence and awe we once did, knowing that the world was ONE; Separated by oceans long ago, but ONE, infinite creation of God.
Take time today, and pray. Love your fellow man/friend/woman/child…be of wonder and be of compassion and Love.
Blessings to you all.
