You are every image,
I am homesick for You.
finding the sacred within can become a trite measure of our spiritual bypassing, but keeping our life simple and divine really means to come from wisdom, from being who we really are without apology, regret or shame……this is a measure of grace…..
The seed of the Blessed One is planted in us but we have trouble accepting this reality. ‘Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate,’ writes Marianne Williamson. ‘Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness, that most frightens us. You are a child of God. Tap into that courage and unspool that wisdom.’ ‘We have a thrifty God,’ observes art historian Sister Wendy Beckett, ‘who lets nothing that is good within us ever go to waste.’ Master Eckhart repeats the point: ‘Become aware of what is in you. Announce it, pronounce it, produce it and give birth to it.’ You do not need to try to become special. The Godseed inside makes you already special. ‘The Greek Orthodox have a spiritual injunction that implores a person to ‘become what you are,’ explains Holly Bridges Elliott. ‘This means by virtue of your creation in the image of God and by your baptism, remember your true humanity, remember that your authentic self is inhabited by God and is a holy creation.’ ‘The world needs all of our power and love and energy, and each of us has something to give,’ Merle Shain reflects. ‘The trick is to find it and use it, to find it and give it away, so there will always be more. We can be lights for each other, and through each other’s illumination we will see the way. Each of us is a seed, a silent promise, and it is always spring.’…..Frederic & Mary Ann Brussat
