Waiting for a Miracle

Today I witnessed a miracle! How many can say that? It would be false to say that we do not see miracles happen each day: feet we walk on, air we breathe, voice we speak with, and ears we listen to yet even more miracles of His perfection. These are obvious and often taken for granted. In the interest of wanting more proof of miracles happening each day, we shall open our eyes a bit further to witness just that.

To witness these miracles we have to actively pursue them: to see the miracle of breath one must center themselves on their breathing and embrace the mystery of its existence, to witness the miracle of walking one must observe themselves as one who can walk, etc. It takes an active participating role on our parts, but also requires a hint of gratitude. Being grateful for what is given to us, only provides more abundance into our lives. A poor man can be the richest of all by seeing the miracle of life and holding gratitude for all it presents, while the richest of man can be the poorest of all by failing to see the gifts presented to him.

Well today I witnessed a more obvious miracle. Yesterday a gentleman started Radiation Treatments, whom was 2-3 weeks status post craniotomy for the removal of a tumor. His prognosis was grim and his team began giving up on him. When we went to get him he was sitting up, but they told us to get a cart as he was getting weaker as the days pass. With the look of a broken spirit, he agreed to come down for treatment and seeing that he was already in a chair we kept him in the chair.

We explained to him (let’s call him Bob) the procedure for treating his brain with Radiation and we explained to him how we were going to get him on and off the treatment table. Suffering from hemi-paresis his whole right side was not functioning normal, leaving him unable to use his right arm or his right foot. Outweighing me by 50 pounds I knew I was also in for a workout. Before we began I told him a story of a friend of mine, David Dubats of Second Step Inc., whom teaches people how to walk once again through neuroplasticity training. If you want to learn more about David’s work, please go to:  http://www.secondstepinc.com

Bob’s eyes lit brightly when I told him of this possibility. With reaction of excitement and purpose, to David’s story, I explained to him that it was up to him from this day forward and further reminded him, as so often we forget, that he had a senior partner with him at all times that he could call on 24/7. I told him to start praying…and that is just what he did.

The next day Bob could not wait to show me his progress. With a smile on his face from ear to ear, he began to raise his arm over his head as he spoke, “I though about what you said and I didn’t go to sleep last night. I was afraid I wasn’t going to be able to move after HE gave me strength to move my arm. He answered my prayer!”

With tears in my eyes, we embraced and Praised God for this miracle.

Neuroplasticity is the concept of re-wiring the brain to function as we think it to be. In biblical terms, “as a man thinketh, so is he.” It can also be paralleled with the Law of Attraction, “If you can see it and feel it, then so shall it be.”

After Bob’s second treatment he whispered to me, “Thank you for teaching me how to ask. I asked big and God Delivered. Praise His holy name Brother.” I humbly replied, “Thank you Bob for being such a wise teacher. Praise God!”

As you Step Into the Canvas today, take note of the many miracles of life, but then be ready to receive larger ones. Ask and it shall be given unto you.

All the Hemispheres by Hafiz

Leave the familiar for a while.

Let your senses and bodies stretch out

 

Like a welcomed season

Onto the meadow and shores and hills.

 

Open up to the Roof.

Make a new watermark on your excitement

And love.

 

Like a blooming night flower,

Bestow your vital fragrance of happiness

And giving

Upon our intimate assembly.

 

Change rooms in your mind for a day.

 

All the hemispheres in existence

Lie beside an equator

In your heart.

 

Greet Yourself

In your thousand other forms

As you mount the hidden tide and travel

Back home.

 

All the hemispheres in heaven

Are sitting around a fire

Chatting

 

While stitching themselves together

Into the Great Circle inside of

You.

~Hafiz

Seeing Beyond the Canvas

Seeing beyond the canvas is about seeing Life as something far greater than our conditioned lives. We were taught  happiness comes from going to school, establishing a career and living the American Dream by purchasing our own home. While achieving all of this something still remains missing. What is this void we all yearn to fill? It is the void of Truth. The void of Truth is the empty feeling we have when we continually seek more of something that gives us a false sense of goodness.

We get a house, a couple of cars and maybe some nice little toys. We are happy for a moment, but continue to battle bouts of depression, anger, fear and sadness. Something is still missing.

Walking in the Flesh, the Orgasm lasts a mere Second.

Walking in Spirit…an Eternity!

The void is our lack of happiness or self-actualization of being ‘On Purpose.’ We must learn to accept happiness no matter the circumstance and see silver-linings in every cloud. Have you ever noticed some of the really successful people and their lives painting a perfect picture? At first glance they seem to be happy, whilst having it all. As we look deeper or time unveils, we hear of a terrible breakup or separation ,they were never really happy, or have addictions to prescription drugs. There is a small population that has it all, but more importantly have found Happiness and live on the level of the heart. At this level…All Things are Possible.

“Never look up to the people who have the painted-perfect lives,

because try as they might,

can never see beyond the canvas.”~Moira Hallsom

It is possible to have it all: the big house, loving family, more money than we know what to do with, but meaningless without finding happiness. People try to buy happiness, but as I stated earlier “As we walk in flesh, the Orgasm lasts for a mere second.” Walking in flesh focuses  on meeting the lower of Maslows Hierarchy of needs: Physical pleasures, while walking in Spirit focuses on higher needs of self-actualization. Find Happiness, enjoying all that life has to offer. Once established, we can co-create the life we want.

Stepping into the Canvas we admire the beauty God has painted, accepting it for what it is while co-creating a painting to our desires. Seeing Beyond the Canvas sheds light to painted pictures and their imperfections. When we see the canvas for what it truly is we accept them as imperfectly perfect as our own, but enjoying the beauty that life has to offer. Focus on our own Canvas, Painting that which we most desire.

So where do we align ourselves? Do we align with the material gains and the Flesh? or do we align with the Higher Self of Spirit, obtaining all that we ever dreamed of? Dare to Step Into the Canvas today, living the life meant to…taking an active role in creation.

 

Much Love and Peace Profound.

Return to Innocence

It all begins with one person, one household, one town, one state, one nation and finally One World.

As peace is restored on the individual level, it spreads to the latter of these.

Listen to this song, watch the video and see  the possibility of returning back to the way it was before the beginning.

Just One Word

Just one uncaring word can spark a fight.

Just one cruel word can shatter a life.

Just one harsh word can sow misunderstanding.

Just one disrespectful word can douse the fervor of love.

Just one kind word can smooth a rocky path.

Just one joyful word can cheer a gloomy day.

Just the right word can lighten an uneasy heart.

Just one affectionate word can show the beauty of the world.

(a centuries old Korean poem, author unknown)
