Honoring the Past, Present, and Future in This Moment

Honoring the Past, Present, and Future in This Moment

Ms. B. used to read a beautiful writing called “A Ritual for the Path of My Faith” before each weekend retreat and ceremony. Take a few minutes to find the perfect object to represent your current life and faith. Sit comfortably, facing your past and holding your present, and read the following words (you can also record them beforehand and listen to them or use them as a model to make up your own words):

I face the path of my faith.
This is the way I’ve come,
the journey my soul has taken
to bring me to where I am today.
I recall the people I’ve met on this path,
teachers all,
kind or unkind.
They walked with me awhile,
showed me their paths,
and so I bless 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 was beautiful.
But I have learned to follow my own path,
I have learned where I must go.
I bless the path of my past.

Still holding the symbol of your present, turn around. You are turning your back on your past and putting it behind you. Continue:
Holding my present in my own hands,
I face my future.
Every day I step forward on an unknown path,
The Secret to Your God-Personalized System 105
a unique path sprinkled with star stuff
of Spirit.
Past, present, future are one time
and here I am,
where I’m supposed to be—
now and always:
my path is with Spirit.

I would recommend to you, as a student of life who is greatly longing to be an intentional spirit, that you practice this ritual for three months and see how your life changes. Read this ritual every morning before you start your day and make notes in your journal of how your life changes.Your energy will greatly increase from this sacred practice. Imagine! And you will feel less disconnected and drained, more impassioned and energized, and you will be living on the path of now.

I am that which I state I am

In Exodus 3:14, God said to Moses,“I am who I am.” “I am” is an expression of God,and what we affirm by using the “I am” becomes our truth.We are the unique micro of the macrocosm.As we expand our ability not to set things right but to see them right, we are able to see…

Amazing You

All amazing human beings come to understand that there is a forked path in life: the path of familiarity (our families, our earthly story) and the original and unique path of our destiny (our sacred lives, our creation story). The path on which we will be awake and fully alive is as unique as our…

The Most Involved Are The Most Evolved

I have always loved the statement.. the most involved are the most evolved. I have experienced this as truth so many times in meeting people throughout the country and learning how valuable their spiritual path is to them and the energy they put into it. Steven Covey says, it is easy to say no when…

Slowing Down

Slowing Down

A young and successful executive was traveling down a neighborhood street, going a bit too fast in his new Jaguar. He was watching for kids darting out from between parked cars and slowed down when he thought he saw something. As his car passed, no children appeared. Instead, a brick smashed into the Jag’s side…
