A Place of Wholeness

A Place of Wholeness

I have been doing christening ceremonies for the past twenty-three years, and each time I invite everyone from the immediate “village,” who are there to support the child to come into a circle. I always ask, “What do you wish and pray for with this child?”

The answers come quickly: to live his dreams, to have self-esteem, to believe in herself, to have faith, to feel connected and loved. And so I tell them the following: Then you have to be what you have wished for. This child will mirror you, so if you live in fear, he will live in fear. If you live in lack, she will live in lack. If you are numb, he will be numb. If you pretend to be something you are not, she will pretend to be something she is not. If you doubt the Universe, he will doubt the Universe. If you do not connect with your Creator, she will not feel free to be created. If you teach him that life is designed to be dying while you are living, he will begin to die while he is living. If you are disconnected and drained, then she will be disconnected and drained.

If you live impassioned and energized, then he will live impassioned and energized. If you believe and practice being original, then she will believe and respect being original. If you learn from your lessons when you make a mistake, then he will learn it is okay to make a mistake and not believe that he is a mistake. If you show your light rather than a lamp that is broken, then she will shine her light as a lamp to the world.

When we live from a place of wholeness, then we are not experiencing life through the eyes of lack. Therefore, we can give freely of our time, our talent, and our love, for we know that the more we give, the more we will have to give. When we live from a place of wholeness, then others will want to mirror our vibrancy of life. We are forever young. We are difference makers. We are energized.

What Does “Relative” Mean in New Thought?

While we know there is only one presence and power in the universe, God the good,we also know God is relative. How we are able to establish a relationship with this All Knowing and All Loving God is relative to how we use our five senses, our experiences, our intuition and our perceptions. How we…

Big God or little god?

Big God or little god?

As a culture, we have limited our ability to see our Creator by listening to what people say about God. We have an idea or an ideal of the divine based on what a relative told us or what a preacher said when we were little. As long as we believe what we were told…

You Were…

Wherever I traveled. You were manifested; Wherever I looked. You were revealed. In ka’ba, idol-temple, synagogue, and church, I saw All were searching for You, and to all You were a Friend. I sought only You in every person I met, every place I went; You were in every sign, both the outer and the…
