Reflections of Life
The water is crashing, smashing against the rocks yet nothing is hurt. There’s no pain, no suffering, no anger about it. It all plays out exactly as it is meant. It’s all a miracle, manifest by the hand of the Almighty Himself.
Even in the crashing, there is beauty. The ocean rises up to meet the crash and smooths back down after the impact. The whole scene is recreated again and again, with no concern from the waves about what happens next. No worry, no fear about where to go or what to do, nor how to “continue on” and survive.
Even in the midst of dense fog, tips of water catch a sparkle of light, reflecting a symbol of hope for those of us who have forgotten that we and “it” are all ONE. We are of the same Energy, the same Essence, the same Spirit. We are the physical expression of GOD LIVING FULLY!
Such is my life – a reflection of “beauty in the crashing.” Part of the ebb and flow of the tide, crashing when it needs to, smoothing over the impact, tireless in its purpose, fearless in its strength, peaceful in its very existence.
Even the ocean understands that it is an expression of God.
And so it is, as are we all.

They say the soul that needs to be healed
Falls from the sky splintered, broken into
Tiny bits of Spirit; Light glinting off the
Edges of broken shards
And it plummets recklessly through the expanse of
Timelessness, consumed with knowing the “whys”
Of its existence, tossing aimlessly about
In the realm of humanity, existing in
Unconsciousness, totally unaware, eyes wide shut
To the reality that there is a purpose here,
That our physical experience is for the
“Remembering” from whence we came.
In this life, the soul is mean to be healed,
To become whole again as it was before
The experience of pain.
The soul is to evolve into
Serenity and completeness and
The gathering of itself as a
Unique and valued and precious entity,
United with and in the image of the Omniscient, All Loving,
Great I AM.
