Faith

I have struggled to grasp the understanding of a creator….

God?
Universal Spirit?
Energy?

In my finite humanness how can my brain possibly comprehend???

But at times I do

I feel it in nature when I am meditating listening to the music of the birds.
I feel it when I am floating in mother natures freshwater arms.
I feel it when I am sitting in God’s hands behind the waves.

I feel it and when I do I feel myself. It makes me want to be good. I believe I am a spiritual being having a human experience therefore to me there has to be a higher power and somewhere to go home to.

I don’t know what it is or what name to call it but I am doing myself an injustice by denying it because of this. I’m guilty of getting all in my head over it making it more confusing than it need be. This is a fruitless parody because I am trying to learn what I can’t completely know. I am getting to know myself and through this experience I am beginning to know a higher power. If I am open and willing all I need to do is stop thinking, feel and have FAITH

Soar Like an Eagle

Sometimes (sometimes often) I get so weighed down by my emotions and it is so difficult to sit with it and wait for it to pass as I know all things do. I read a beautiful reading which reminded me I am a human confined to earthly life and emotional disturbances, pain and suffering are all part of this.

If I can remember to turn inward and find calm and if possible have space to sit and meditate I imagine that I am an eagle soaring high above my troubles. Looking down on their earthly constraint I know that I have a choice to learn from the struggles in my path, to rise up and face and to spiritually grow. I remember that I too have moments inn this earthly life where I am at peace and in joy and my emotions are free, soaring high like the eagle.
