Sunday Morning Meditation
With Cheryl Branco in the Fireside Room at 9:00-9:30 am
Living in our fast-paced world filled with the barrage of news, social media, and the demands of work, family, and even retirement, we may feel off-balance at times. When that happens, it’s time to flip our internal circuit breaker and reground ourselves in Source.
Oneness is reality. The boundary between ourselves and other people and between ourselves and Nature, is illusion. A blessing is an imparting of spiritual good, and to be a blessing is to be a beacon that shines forward hope, faith, and wisdom. I allow the inner light of Spirit to guide me that I may bring light to those around me.
The “I” that thinks has the capacity to think what it wants to think, and I decide to think positively and creatively. I get the wrinkles out of my mind. I get myself thinking organized and orderly.I make up my mind, then I go out and face the world, secure in knowing that no matter what happens, I can be on top of it.
The movement of Spirit from within me out into my words and actions is an expression of my spirituality. When I am fully experiencing the reality of my spiritual nature, my life is indeed full – full with the presence of God and full with the expression of the sacred attributes. Expressing my spirituality, I give more in life and receive more from life.
When filled with anxiety or concern, when a conclusion is reached and the next steps seem unclear, I make a choice to let go of the fear and embrace the divine light that shines the way from the inside out. “Casting all your anxiety upon him, because he careth for you” 1 Peter 5:7.
When we reach a point of spiritual awakening, we become aware of a greater possibility and potential within us for expressing more light, love, joy, and enthusiasm for life. We have a choice to consciously enter into a life of triumphant living… or not. In full awareness and in infinite love, I embrace the divine in me.
Thought is the moving force within an idea that gives it expression. My thoughts and words are always molding the spiritual substance and bringing it into manifestation. Today, my thoughts, words, and actions are aligned with the perfect wholeness of Spirit.
As Spirit in expression, I move through my life boldly and joyfully. I am energized and up lifted. The joy I feel in my soul is an expression of the radiant life of God that courses throughout my being. With an open mind and heart, I joyfully welcome new opportunities into my life.
God is all,and to live and dwell in this realization makes every moment so full of meaning that we cannot put into words the sheer joy of living that we feel.
