A Ritual for the Path of My Faith

A Ritual for the Path of My Faith

Face where you have been (in the past)
I face the path of my faith
This is the way I’ve come,
The journey my soul has taken to bring me where I am today.
I recall the people I’ve met on this path,
Teachers all.
Kind and Unkind-
Whatever they did, they walked with me awhile
And showed me the path
I bless their being and their teaching.
I remember events and encounters along the way,
Pleasant or painful,
Always instructive,
Whatever happened, it was useful –
And in its own integrity, it was beautiful-
I learned to follow my own path.
I learned where I must go.
I bless the path of my past…
(Turn away from the past)
Holding my present in my own hands,
I face my future now –
I face a new path every morning-
Every day I step forward on an unknown path –
A unique path –
Guided and supported by the Spirit within me –
In its presence, past and future are one time-
And I’m where I am supposed to be.
Now and always, my path is in Spirit.

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,…

You Are A Modern-Day Mystic

You Are A Modern-Day Mystic

How can words convey the depth and sweetness of unconditional love, the soul’s joy in coming home to God, the stunning revelation that despite all your errors, you are forgiven? How to describe the realization that your every thought and deed is known, and the bliss of being shown that your soul is pure, not…

What Does Your Mirror Reflect?

What Does Your Mirror Reflect?

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…
