Today, the first day of April, is Easter Sunday for many of the World’s Christians. It is a day of celebrating the miracle of life over death. In addition, this week is Pesach, or Passover, for the World Jewish Community; commemorating their journey and the blessings that followed. For many more still, April is a month of spiritual and/or religious celebration.
For me, this abundance of spiritual energy is a solid reinforcement and reminder of the spiritual journey we are all walking; one that calls us to live an active faith while living our Spiritual Purpose throughout our lives. The inner-peace, inner-joy and inner-awareness that comes from consciously living this way are the rewards, the amazing by-products, of taking the actions needed to mindfully discover and live our purpose in this world.
Recently, I have become an active member in a global purpose-driven group. I have been rebranding my website, and my life, to support my desire for global work in helping the transformation of organizations and their leaders as we bring a spiritual perspective and its values to a place and people not normally seen in that light. Transformational change is coming.
Remember nature seeks balance and as we see so much greed, egotism, and hatred, nature also emphasizes the generosity of spirit, selflessness, and love that so many of our youth and others are displaying as a counterbalance.
Spiritual messages are abundant if you choose to see them. Yesterday, I saw the movie I Can Only Imagine with a friend. It was the sad and yet beautiful story of a spiritual and emotional awakening of two men in a family. For one, it brings a peace that allows his greatest gift, music, to reach levels he had only dreamed of previously. Living in that spiritual peace does that, for each one of us. And to think, it’s only a matter of choice – a choice you can each make!
This movie and its theme also reminded me of John Lennon’s song, Imagine from so long ago.
Imagine no possessions
I wonder if you can
No need for greed or hunger.
A brotherhood of man
imagine all the people sharing all the world
You, you may say
I’m a dreamer, but I’m not the only one
I hope someday you’ll join us
And the world will live as one.
When I first heard that song many years ago, I could imagine. I could imagine a world where we knew we were all in this together (a phrase I frequently use) supporting each other in joy, laughter, compassion, and selflessness. Little did I know that as I aged, as I walked my journey, I would realize this is the spiritual calling of each of us. How we bring that about, how much and what type of work we do on ourselves to create it is a choice, a choice that creates miracles daily.
In this time of great joy, hope, faith, and miracles, I wish many of those miracles for you.
