Feeling hopeless is like feeling there is no way out. That all paths have been tried and have dried up. Prompted by a friend's comment that she deserves to feel hope, I started thinking about hope in new ways. I even waxed poetic.
Hope is part of that continuum of our spiritual sense that continuously cycles upward from intuition through hope. Hope opens the door to faith, then to understanding, fruition, which defines our reality. (1)
We all have moments of reflection and moments of expression.
When we feel what Mary Baker Eddy describes as times that are "low, sad and sweet" we can fully embrace the opportunity to feel a stillness and nourishing presence of God's love. (2)
Go ahead, feel that deep calm.
Silence the voices that say
"I can't feel it," (as if omnipotent God was a limited emotional state).
"I don't deserve it," (as if God could create something less vaulable than Herself).
"God is too far from me," (as if God is only omnipresent for some).
It is the opening of our eyes that lets us see beyond limitations to infinite possibilities
It is our acceptance of God as pure, radical and radiant love.
It is our right to claim our inheritance - that we are the beloved child of God.
Beloved, NOW are we the children of God.
Let this mature and season your consciousness, and grow and radiate into glorious expression -- into glorious, rowdy, spontaneous, surprising, satisfying and Olympic-triumph defining expression.
