What are you looking for in your life? More peace, prosperity, someone to share your life with? What are you hungry for? I don’t know about you, but one of the things I’ve learned on this journey of becoming more of who I am – is that every person deep down inside – really just wants to be happy, to be with their families, have their friends around them – have successful meaningful relationships – be healthy and live the life they are meant to live. I don’t care what country you go to on this great big beautiful blue marble in space that we live upon – most people are good. You can make the argument by saying “look – look at the terrorists or the criminals in the world” – but did you know that those people actually only represent a small percentage of the rest of the world’s population? Think about it. There are 6.5 billion people on this planet. And of those 6.5 billion people, how many of them are really, really, really bad people? The point is this – there is far more goodness going on in the world right this minute than badness! All is well. All is really well. There is a flow of well being that comes to each and every one of us – we just need to learn to tap into it – plug in so-to-speak. Did you know that you have immediate access to that well-being regardless of what is occurring in your external world at any given moment? That well-being is called Source, God, Universe, Allah, Shiva, or whatever name you choose to give it but Source is available to each and every one of us at any moment regardless of the constraints any religious dogma tries to put on it. This is the true secret of living: understanding who you are and where you came from. Religious dogmatists would try to tell you that you must turn around three times and tap your heels together or say 100 Hail Mary’s or get baptized in water or deny yourself those things you want to attain true spirituality! Hogwash! You are a divine child of the Universe with the Source of Creation inside of you! Inside – not outside! Christ once said to his followers (loosely translated) “there will come a time when people will not worship in temples made by hands.” You are the temple not made by hands that He speaks of. In you is the Holy of Holies – a special place where you can connect and meet the Source of all Creation. Don’t believe me? Haven’t you felt those ecstatic moments of joy that seemingly have no reason for existing? You’re tapping into Source. What about the peace that passes all understanding that has come to you in the dead of night or in that moment you most desperately needed it? When you make a conscious decision to develop a relationship with Source – the most intimate on the face of this planet you will ever experience – your life can become one of meaning and purpose. Once you make that connection – everything is at your fingertips in a moment. Our true journey here is enjoying this temple not made by hands. To live our lives to the fullest potential of who we really are – divine children of the universe – and express that divinity in our own individual ways. Just like there are no two leaves, no two grains of sand, and no two snowflakes alike, there is nothing on this planet that is like anything else in its uniqueness. You are the gift Source has given you. So what are you doing with this gift of life right now? Are you complaining? Or are you thankful for the simple fact that you are breathing? The gift of life on this planet is that we can interact with this most beautiful and delicious world and everything in it through our thoughts, our feelings and emotions, our bodies and through all of our senses. You are here to live your life and enjoy it – not constrain it – not bind it all up in a set of rules and regulations that keep you from experiencing life! Take your faith out of the temples made with hands and realize that it isn’t outside of you – it’s inside – right in the core of your being. That faith is what powers you – keeps you breathing – keep it where it belongs – in the inner temple squarely in your heart where its true home is. And realize that faith is the substance of things hoped for the EVIDENCE of things not yet seen. You are a child of the Most High – a divine child of the Universe. Claim your birthright today!
