Carpe Diem!

I love words, word origins and phrases. As I was skimming through different pieces of literature one day, I decided to look a bit deeper into the origin of the Latin phrase, 'carpe diem'. Noted in the Phrase Finder on Google, I learned the phrase is " 'Usually translated from the Latin as 'seize the day', or sometimes as 'enjoy the day, pluck the day when it is ripe' ".

One of the weekly messages received from Jewel Diamond Taylor, dynamic Public Speaker and one of my self-appointed mentor's, inspired me as follows on the subject:

"This is a day and week you have never seen before. Open the
present of life God has given you today. Seize the moment, seize this precious day. Do not waste it.

Get moving. Be thankful. Be focused. Be productive. Be mindful of who and what activities get your energy and time.
Remember to refer to your things-to-do-list. This is one habit that has saved me time, energy and money. If your list is out of sight, it's out of mind and most likely won't get done.

As you let go of the "woulda, coulda and shoulda", you will have more energy to make the most of the present called today. If you can learn to shake off the stress and drama in your life, you will have more energy, faith and peace to move forward."

"God bless you and stay in the Light." ~ Jewel Diamond Taylor

Happy Fathers Day

To All Fathers--Happy Fathers Day - Callielou - Beliefnet Community (Click on the link)

Happy Father's Day!
To all of the fathers, father-figures and surrogates as well, we celebrate this day that God has made and given us all the choice in which to relish. Let's do so with a loving heart that forgives mis-takes, re-takes and just plain "unknowingness"; with a heart that embraces and cherishes the the God-given role of strength, lovingkindness, and guidance including discipline and integrity.

I was thinking about my father who has made his transition. I began to grow more appreciative and glad as I allowed the divine spirituality of my father to seep into my awareness. We dance, we laugh, we converse richly now. This is something which may or may not have occurred when my daddy was still in his physical form but it happens every time he comes to my awareness now. Glory! I begin to thank Almighty God for the many things I continue to learn from him.

It dawned on me, this is what I truly want to remember and how I want to interact with everyone. Unless we are doing our spiritual Christ-transforming work, we often come into contact and interact with one another from an externally-driven mode of expression whereby we model less than genuine and lower than loving intentions toward one another. And even then it still may be hit-or-miss depending on our level of understanding and frame of mind in the given moment.

We are to worship Almighty God in spirit and in truth which comes through our discernment and we will experience godliness by allowing God-essence to shine through our delivery of beingness. So I say Namaskar: I behold the divine in you. I know it is there because it is the image of the Creative Source and Architect of all Humankind. Anything else that may show forth teaches us to continue to unite with our Spiritual essence to keep seeing more of God within.

Happy Father's Day everyday.

Can You Feel Me?

Michael Jackson asked us "Can you feel it?" I have several Facebook hommies who send their FB friends, which of whom I am one, thoughts in the spirit of love by sending them flowers, hugs, and gifts via the Facebook applications. One of them sent a message saying that she "wishes that she had money to send a real flower to all of her friends when she wanted to".

Just having a desire to send friends and family a flower, a touch , a gift of warmth and peace is special in and of itself. To do so in the next best possible way sends out positive vibrations from her mental field. The heartfelt, genuine love expressed is currency enough and greater than all the flowers a physical dollarbill could buy.

Do not mis-interpret my message; to receive real flowers in physical form is grand but even grander still is the feeling which leaves its footprint on the hearts and minds of those who give and those who receive in and from a genuine state of love; expecting nothing in return.

The thoughts of love, appreciation, and inspiration that come along with the giving of positiveness and beauty capture and share more than the mere outer beauty of the flower: we get to be sprayed and impressed with the genuine individualized Godstuff of the giver as issued directly to them by the inexhaustible Creative Source -God the Generous.

Blessings Beloveds,

Allow Love to Emerge

Give love. Love is what we are...our essence -which is God and you know God is LOVE. Just breathe that in and let your recognition and reconnection with love guide you for the next 5 minutes. Just become one with the genuine, pure love from your heart.

I am not referring to the illusion of love that the world tells us we should have; you know the kind that has conditions which make us think "if you love me then..." no, I mean that love of God within which tells us how to love ourselves so that we truly value ourselves and all other spiritual beings; the kind of love that loves just because it is love and it knows nothing else but love. Yes, we are heirs to that kind of love which helps us to see the divine in everyone in spite of their faults, outer appearances and/or actions.

This does not mean that we have to say anything or do anything to, or for anyone as a matter of fact it does not make us feel that we "have" to do anything under obligation. Love is freeing. And when we allow this true love habitation we find ourselves saying and doing loving things, including things which may not seem so warm, fuzzy and comforting but they are said and done from an intention of truly wanting the best for someone else simply because we value ourselves as opposed to feeling self-contempt or self-condemnation.

When we allow Love Its way, we will do and give freely from a sense of pure gratitude and thanksgiving for simply being a purposive part of this ever-evolving universe. It takes self love to erase insecurity brought about by thoughts of envy and jealousy. Insecurity is fear-based and there is no love in it. And if there is no love in it-it is a lie and there is no truth in it; Not only is there no truth in it, but there is no substance in it. Because God is Love and God is Truth, God is that which stands back of and under anything of substance.

Rejoice in the fact that we no longer have to grasp those lies and illusions that came from our mental and spiritual dis-connection with our Source. When we take our minds off God and good...we suffer in lies and illusions. When we get back in the flow of allowing real LOVE to guide us, we experience more pleasant thoughts and bounty from the blessedness of being in oneness.

So I challenge you to STOP reading right now for 5 minutes and allow that genuine, "inner-GodLove" to emerge. It's already there operating and desiring to operate and express even more fully with our continued recognition and abiding. Breathe it in and actually feel the connection. Let this Love guide your mind, heart and deeds for the next 5 minutes following the connective experience. We have no idea as to what 1 moment or 5 minutes in love will bring to ourselves or to someone else. If we act from love and with loving intention then that is all that God requires of us. (Romans 13:9 "The commandments...are summed up in this one rule: " 'Love your neighbor as yourself' ").

Think For Yourself Lights!

"When one does not think for oneself, the mind becomes filled with not only one's own dark and deadly putridity; but conjoins with other peoples' ignorance, and the self gets lost if not buried." Neelie
