Rising Up

IMG_2106The Wizard of Oz is one of my favorite movies.  I could watch it every day and twice on Sundays.  There’s just a lot of symbolism in it, and of course, it’s a great movies for the innocents.

There’s a belief that there’s no place like home…home is safe…home is the hearth of creativity and healing, of patriotism and honor.

Well, just as the Wizard of Oz is fantasy, it would seem that the belief that there’s no place like home could be a fantasy too.  Anyone who has been witness to the goings-on in our beautiful America (my home), would not disagree.  There is no little man behind the curtain to hand out a heart, or a brain, or courage.

We are being beckoned by something greater than ourselves to rise up, to wake up from our dream state and to witness the heralding of a newer, bolder, wiser, more loving, more courageous beingness.  No, I don’t mean more tolerant — that hasn’t worked, has it?  No, I don’t mean more compassionate, we are already inherently compassionate beings.

I mean being in the place of spirit where Love, Truth and Life become the design and control of who we are.  We are the expression of God in action.  We are Human, but we are also Being.

Because of our humanness, we can be fooled once.  But because of our Beingness, we now know that the ruse is up and we got game. America is my home. And there is no place like America. She needs us now.  You in?

When you make the decision, there’s no need to click those ruby red slippers to know that you’re home.  You know it by every breath you take.

 

 

 

 

 

 

The Design Unfolds

Fall apart

I am certain God has a plan.  There is a design unfolding, I’m just not certain what it is.

My husband and I lost a good friend and major player in the business yesterday.  Unexpectedly.  Gone.  Just like that.

I am certain God has a plan.  There is a design unfolding, I’m just not certain what it is.  I don’t question it.  I trust.  God and Love never fail.  Humans…well that’s a totally different story, too long to tell in a blog.

An angel came into our lives 3 years ago, at a time when we were scratching our heads about how the business was going to continue to flourish.  He said yes to everything we asked.  He was a man of true integrity.  He always kept us an arm’s length away from anything personal, and we respected that about him.  He was an honest man, a loving man, a compassionate man.  A man who loved photography.  A man who loved children.  A man who loved God more than life itself.

I am certain God has a plan.  There is a design unfolding.  I’m just not certain what it is.  But I know that this man will be greatly missed on the planet and although his physical presence is no longer with us, I know that his spirit is still around.  He loved playing games.  He loved sarcasm.  He had a totally dry wit.  And as I sit here creating this blog post, I can hear him say, “don’t you have something else better to do…like go outside and enjoy the beautiful weather? I’m fine, really I am. Go. Go.”  Thank you, Jim, for all the love you showered on us, our business, your friends, the world.  Your radiant spirit is present.

I am certain God has a plan.  We are willing participants in its unfolding.  There is a design, I’m just not certain what it is but I know that the Truth is True and All is Well, Unconquerable Life Prevails.
