For years, I have been trying to accept the truth of the statement that I am One with God. I have heard it, and repeated it to others (with conviction!) over and over and over again. I actually thought I was close to accepting it until an affirmation I read two days ago stopped me in my tracks. It said, “My identity is wholeness and perfection. God expresses beautifully as me.” I noted that it did not say that God expresses beautifully through me. I have said that many, many times, but I suddenly saw the difference. The word “through” implies that I am separate from God. The word, “as” reflects the truth of our Oneness. That one little word shed light on yet another layer of my resistance to the truth about myself.

As Macrina Wiederkehr says in Wonderful Prayer, “Oh God, Help me to believe the truth about myself, no matter how beautiful it is.” 

Let your spirit soar!

I’ll Be There #20/2013

I’ll Be There #20/2013

Before my ex-husband died in 2006, he owned a small pick-up truck which our son, Greg, inherited, and a red mustang that went to our oldest son, Michael. Seven years later, Michael still has the mustang that his dad coveted. When Greg got married two weeks ago, I was thrilled that Michael was able to fly in from Wyoming for the wedding, but I couldn’t help but wish that their dad could be there too. When Michael got to the car rental place at the airport, the attendant shrugged and said, “Well, it looks like you’ve been upgraded for some reason.” and handed him the keys. Later, as I watched wedding guests arrive at the hotel we had booked for the weekend, I was surprised and delighted to see Michael pull up in – you guessed it! – a red mustang.

Let your spirit soar!
