We can fly!

“ What could you not accept, if you but knew that everything that happens, all events, past, present and to come, are gently planned by One Whose only purpose is your good?”   …   Quote from “A Course in Miracles”

Sometimes life delivers to our doors visitors and circumstances whose presence and attention we would have preferred not to entertain.  Sometimes we seem to be flung into a raging storm whose power threatens to sweep us away and leave nothing behind but sad memories of happier times.   But sometimes Life intervenes and the machinations of the world and the lies it spins fall before Life’s mighty but gentle presence and we are sheltered.

I don’t really know anyone who has managed to walk through life here on planet Earth without encountering trials and tribulations of either the small or overwhelming variety.  Don’t get me wrong, I think that there is an abundance of beauty and wondrous miracles available for our pleasure and joy here … one only has to look out the door to see the Ordinary Miracles of Life.  And it’s a good thing that Life gives us a playground that holds such enormous potential to heal us with its beauty and to remind us from whence we come, for all of us  need what the Love and the Gentleness of Life have to offer.

I am returning to my flying state – my joyful self – and I am doing so by the choices that I make – choices to remember the “One Whose purpose is (my) good” and to remember faith.  I don’t view faith as a distant relation who occasionally comes into town to visit.  No, for me – even as a little girl – faith was a living, breathing way of life.  Faith connects me to Life, to those around me and to the Universe and Faith gives me knowing; even when all evidence is to the contrary, that I am safe and loved at a level inside of myself that I don’t always understand.  Remembering brings me Home.  Faith sets me free.  Gentle Purpose moves me forward.  I am returning to my flying state – I am returning to Me.

Godspeed and Arinaste (from my heart to your heart)

  1. Susanne,

    First I want to disagree with you on something, but in a wonderful way, I think. There are no ordinary miracles, they are all extraordinary, from a dew drop to a raging sun, they are all extraordinary.

    And so is your article and I agree with the first responder, Returning to Me does sum it all up. It is the journey… returning to me. Love it.

      Thanks Nick! I agree … EVERY moment is filled with miracles … I think that people have just become overwhelmed and stopped seeing them. So many are looking for the big fireworks variety … and they certainly ARE wonderful when they show up … but personally … I get a huge boost out of the wonderful little day-to-day ones. Wishing you a great week. Susanne

    The last line says it all, well done again. Returning to Me. That seems to be the core answer to all things, a resolution to all of life’s riddles. Didn’t realize until recently being Me is a state of awareness, it’s that knowing that I don’t need to know anything. Love it.

      A friend of mine used to say: “The more I know , the more I know nothing!” 😀 Maybe that’s how how life is here …. we move through each moment, each day – hopefully letting go of the hurts, fears and angers – only to discover this whole new “Me” underneath … a “Me” who we really don’t even know anymore … a “Me”who is our deepest soul.
