Our happiness, our peace, our sense of well being are not dependent upon outer circumstances; they depend solely on our thoughts and expectations. At times, we may fail to realize that these are totally in our control; WE DECIDE those thoughts upon which we will focus and to which we will lend our energy. A “Cavalry Mindset” is one in which we face and overcome whichever mental “enemy(s)” we face! The cavalry is not a single soldier, but rather an army. Spiritually, we have, indwelling, an army of tools! We refer to this state as Christ Consciousness! It is there for us, wherever we are, whatever we are facing, ready to come to our rescue. We call it into action through prayer, denials and affirmations, meditation, through our focus on Truth and through our decision to command and control the thoughts we hold.
We are all here for a purpose! Some of us struggle, for years, trying to discern that purpose, while others may go through life not giving it a thought. Today’s world draws us back to this age-old question: “What am I doing here??!!” The answer, as always lies inside. Ultimately, we are here to BE! We are here to express all that God is, and can do, in and through and as us! Today’s lesson sheds some light on what that means and tools that will empower us to attain our purpose: Be yourself; everyone else is already taken!
As we celebrate and honor our earthly mothers, we can remember that the Divine Mother is present in every spiritual tradition of Truth. Her role is one of pure tenderness, compassion and unfailing loyalty. The Divine Feminine, a spiritual energy, has been with us – male and female – from the beginning. In the perfect I AM, it is balanced with – and compliments – the Divine Male energy! Happy Mother’s Day to all!
In these days of worldly uncertainty, there is always that ONE to whom we can turn for comfort, clarity, refuge! Psalm 91 is one of the most often cited books in the Bible! It shows the way to that peace beyond all understanding which we are all seeking at this time!
