In all the world there is no place like our earth. There’s no other place anywhere in close proximity to us that has the beauty and splendor and balance and harmony and majesty and serenity and exquisiteness of our home. We have explored and not found another planet to compare.
Pull back and observe the glory and just how full of wonder this planet is, that so many forms of life could inhabit it’s gardens.
We are told that by the choice to continue to eat of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil we remain cast out of the garden. (To me this means we are unable to fully enjoy the beauty and bounty.)
This happens when we set our vision on parsing what we see into good and bad categories. When we continue to choose this way we also believe we are separate and experience ourselves as separated. We believe we need to work for our existence.
We no longer experience living in the lap of bounty and trust, we now live in want and isolation always attempting to rectify this painful separation with the same choosing that took us out of the garden, separating Life into good and evil and so many other categories.
But what if we woke-up and chose to eat of the tree of Life. Trusting all of life for value. Remembering the One who put us here and honoring and respecting and trusting and allowing. Trusting that Life has remembered us and is for us, unconditionally, no matter what our separated mind tells us we see.
To begin to choose to trust Life, we must begin with ourselves, right where we are, by trusting what is wanted and what is felt. Sitting with the self and regaining a relationship.
Asking questions and listening for answers. And observing the qualities within our self, all of them. The anger is there for a reason, the fear is there for a reason, the sadness is there for a reason, and it’s most likely not the reason we think.
Very few really go through this courageous change of choosing and experiencing Life without parsing everything into good and evil.
Many have a form of Life but not the power and glory and splendor that Life can be here on earth…to these I say thank you for your wonderful, beautiful and glorious expression of the Divine.
But….to those who are ready to hear what I’m saying…let us trust the Divine to lead us to peace.
