The word Evolutionary is used allot these days. There is a intuition that seems to have an urgency connected that is calling us all to awaken. Awaken to the new possibilities for our world. We intuitively know that our world cannot continue on the same path if we want this beautiful planet to be here for the next generations.
There is a feeling of sort that seems to be waking up in many of us to this call to change. Sometimes it may seem daunting! But it takes so little for each of us to stand in a place of williningness. If we are willing nothing is impossible! Part of this call is to use less and love more. The only real answer is love. I heard Greg Braden speak recently and I am not sure if this is his quote but he said love is the only answer for every question!
This week the invitation is how we can use less, whether that is resources or people. We need to become more aware and present to what we eat, buy and how we treat others. We have already uncovered the uselessness of coveting, we need to honour each other as a global family and put more value on each other. Find ways to share who and what we have. Be that change that Ghandi speaks of. We only need to make small changes and this will lead to bigger and wiser choices. Reach out in love and acceptance instead of anger and gossip this week. Challenge ourselves to be the change in our work places. Find ways to fill our hearts and others with peace. We can all start at home and around our communities.
This is the true Evolution, become what we want to see in the world! Stop waiting for someone else to make a change. No matter what our belief or spiritual practices are let us be accepting and open to learning from each other. What ever we call our higher power, no matter what we believe, we all need to live and survive here on mother earth together. Instead of trying to convert others convert ourselves into an instruments of peace and love.
Prayer of Saint Francis of Assisi
Lord, make me an instrument of your peace,
Where there is hatred, let me sow love;
where there is injury, pardon;
where there is doubt, faith;
where there is despair, hope;
where there is darkness, light;
where there is sadness, joy;
O Divine Master, grant that I may not so much seek to be consoled as to console;
to be understood as to understand;
to be loved as to love.
For it is in giving that we receive;
it is in pardoning that we are pardoned;
and it is in dying that we are born to eternal life.
