New Clothes

New Clothes

How perfect it is that we are born naked and vulnerable so that we may learn how to be properly clothed. The clothing of our lives is not meant in a literal sense, although we are required as human beings to be clothed according to our culture, environment, and standards. I am talking about the clothing of who we are meant to be. The clothing we discover in our lives is the core value we accept of our uniqueness and magnificence, and anything less will give us the feeling of being drained and disconnected. A closet filled with clothes from the past as well as the clothes of the future feels stuffed, weighed down like the beggar who had new beautiful clothes yet still carried his old rags around.

If you are already in a phase of doubting that the life you desire is possible, then volunteer to help a teacher in a kindergarten, work a week in a summer camp, or spend other quality time with little kids and ask them, “What do you want to be when you grow up?”

The answers will be pretty awesome: a famous dancer, the president, a schoolteacher, a princess, a leader who can end hunger, and so many more. Within every child is the desire to be clothed with an amazing destiny. None of them hesitate as they declare, “This is why I came here.” At a young age we believe, “I do not know how it can happen, but I know what I want to happen.

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…
