What is our reality?

What is our reality?

There is a wonderful quote from Shakespeare’s Hamlet:
“There is nothing either good or bad, but thinking makes
it so.” Many people label their experiences as good and
bad,and these labels define their realities. Oftentimes they
say,“This is just the way I am.This is my reality.” People
may get very comfortable with and accept what they have
been told, or state that what is is all there will ever be in
their lives.
Reality with a capital R is the absolute truth of God.
Reality with a small r is that which we have labeled our
truth.We are fortunate when the Reality of God and our
reality go hand in hand.We can always change our reality
if we are willing to draw from God’s greater truth.
In other words, there will always be “facts” of living in
the world, such as the real estate market or the economy,
yet there is also truth.This truth is the wisdom of Jesus, to
be in the world yet not of the world.

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…
