THE HUMAN CONDITION AND THE BLESSINGS JOURNAL
“I will be a clear channel for God’s love today.”
Human conditions are not God’s choice for us nor is He in a position to stop us from our insanity. But He did create us Holy and Whole so that we, even in our human form, are capable of making choices from that perfect place from which we were created. And we can choose a better way, a higher thought, whenever we want. And that is where our power lies.
For every fear thought, there is a loving thought nearby; for every cloud, a golden lining. Today begin a Blessings Journal. Instead of focusing upon all that is wrong in your life, spend some time each evening before you go to bed and look quietly upon your day. Where you see unsightly weeds of pain and sadness, look for light and glorious blooms on the Christmas cactus. Let the flowers symbolize for you, all the beautiful moments and everyone for which you can be grateful.
Let everything you have experienced and everyone you have encountered be a teaching tool for peace. An opportunity for forgiveness. Write down what you have learned. And then write down each loving gift; the ones that are clear and the ones you may have overlooked. The ones that are huge and the ones that are barely visible. Pay attention to your life as you go about your day. Let this exercise strengthen you and help you remember that even in the insanity, there are blossoms trying to free themselves.
Search carefully for those moments you can put into your blessings journal. And then just before you fall sleep say, “Thank you, God. Thank you for all that I have learned. Thank you for my life. Thank you for showing me this world through Your Eyes. And thank you for using me as a healing channel for peace in this world.”
And now your path is clear for it is strewn with the flowers of Holy, Healing Love. And you will know that you are the greatest blessing in your life.
