Namaste Marvelous, Miraculous Mystery! Happy May!
I greet you this day in reverent miracle mindedness; measuring a few life milestones and moments ~ some in celebration of mystical manifestation and others in surrendered contemplation ~ all somewhere in the intersections of those inspirations! Near the end of these May mindful musings, I have some marvelous NEWs to share! Yet, first let’s settle in with sacred breath. Our New Thought Families May Play & Pray Calendar is embracing The Mystery narrated by intergenerational voices. Based on this AHsome anonymous audio, The Mystery, I invite you to contemplate & celebrate any May day with us on the Calendar and here and now with our video, The Mystery:
And so it is we meet here in the Mystery … the awareness of sacredness and divinity in our reality. Thank you for the gift of your presence here and now. As so many aspects of political and social culture are in varied amounts of meltdown both nationally and globally, it is good to meet here, breathe deep and affirm divine order. The more centered we stay as individuals, families, communities, the more we can stay the divine in the face of the insanity of humanity.
As spring weather warms up, the mosquitos are coming out; ever thought of how these tiny beings cause destruction in their blood sucking way of survival?! There has been talk of scientifically eradicating them due to the belief that they only cause harm and provide no measurable benefits. So why did the Creator make mosquitos? Is it divine co-creation to eradicate them and thereby the life threatening diseases they carry? Are there those in the world who would be horrified if humans eradicated mosquitos? If it were attempted, would it even be successful?! Would our Earth Mother weep if we waged war with her children the mosquitos?! As we bring those questions home, what ‘mosquitos’ in your life would you like to eradicate? What purpose do they serve?
In the middle of our May Mystery celebrations and contemplations, is motherhood. With Mother’s Day celebrated the second Sunday in May, we honor our mothers, and often, their selfless giving for our well being. Mother’s Day began in 1870 by Julia Ward Howe as a Mother’s Day For Peace; she was, in part inspired by Anna reeves Jarvis who in 1858 started “Women’s Work Days” for women working for more sanitary conditions for both sides of the civil war. These mothers didn’t want to lose their sons to war and they didn’t want any mother to lose their child to war no matter what side of the fight they were on. It was a motherly reaching and teaching of oneness, unconditional Love and the sanity of humanity. Our New Thought Families page on these Mother’s Day origins is here.
Every month has it’s special celebrations; in fact every day has been declared for multiple somethings it seems! For instance, May 1st is not just for dancing around the May Pole! From quite a roster of holidays found here, the one that had peeps taking to the streets this year was International Workers’ Day as thousands took to the streets marching in solidarity for (undocumented) immigrants. While I have not made another march since the Women’s March, I applaud the active feet and voices chanting and singing for each other, for justice, for the health and well being of our planet. Undoubtedly, there are those who view protestors as mosquitos while I revere them as the lifeblood of democracy.
In the midst of our current civil unrest, the well being of our Sacred Mother is under another series of attacks. With climate change denial at the center, artic oil drilling tops the list of old ways surfacing to be reinstated. While we as individuals and families don’t have a lot of power against big oil, collectively our marching feet do! And! In the green begins with me core of who we are, there are truly infinite ways we can practice living green ~ in conservation and in reverent respect and adoration of our Mother. I had a call yesterday with Rev Barbara Williams for her Deep Green series and a recording of that green talk, green walk call is here.
I join Rev Barbara again tomorrow 5/6 at noon Pacific, 3:00 Eastern on her Blog Talk Radio Show to continue the conversation! Join us in yessing the Greening Our Being!
So! Yes we can align with the shine of our divine design … any time! Especially in these crazy times where the insanity of humanity seems so prevalent. We just keep listening deep for what is ours to do and trust that transformations are always turning true! The New Thought TV Channel has been in touch for family programming and even though our archives are not of the production quality they require, we will be collaborating in the future. Meanwhile! The process led me to this compilation celebrating Mama! It includes: Mama & Earth Mama Music Videos, Sacred Moments with Nature, Green Living At Home for reverent mama earth living & Sebastian Wakes Up Laurie StorEBook. EnJOY!
New Thought Families Leaping Literacy Celebration: MAMA
Our Leaping Literacy Library has some new innovations that will be going live throughout the summer. The Leaping Literacy Library Free Shelf is stocked with videos, songs and Laurie StorEBooks that celebrate variations of mama and more!
Before I close this sharing, I do want to speak to a celebration that feels like a full circle, mystic manifestation … I interviewed at our old church this week, Spiritual Life Center, for a part time Youth Education Director position. It has been a loooong time since we were really part of this loving community ~ though in divine order, I was there 3 WOW Wednesdays in the past few months, presenting with my interfaith minister friend Karene. There are a myriad of details I could dive into yet what’s important is that this was a process of surrender and “Thy will be my will” in receiving the call to apply, applying, and receiving the job. The Mystery is at work and play in and through the leadership I will be working with at the church, in and through me as well as in and through the beautiful youth and families I will serve and be served by. It has a full circle bringing home of the resources at New Thought Families ~ many that started at Spiritual Life Center! ~ and the Leaping Literacy Library in terms of them becoming more organized and accessible for use by others. It is a happy heart synergy for me just knowing that what we nurture and envision as good can be birthed as magnificence into the mundane.
So whatever good you’re up to, let’s continue to live the Mystery holding hope for the heart of humanity and walking our path as straight and true as we can … as the I Am that I Am! And so it is. Thank you, thank you for the heart of you so true. Namaste, Love!
