We all have our crosses to bear. The situations, sickness or burdens challenge us to be transformed and become the person we are supposed to be. Embracing it will empower us. Sufficient love and grace will see us through and not let it destroy us. Would you throw your cross in the pile and trade it with another one?
Looking back at the cross we had to bear, we learn to appreciate the journey and embrace the cross.
There was a sign in one of the restaurants: “No WIFI. Talk to each other .” Forms of communication like email, Instagram, Facebook, IM, Viber , Twitter and what have you fill up our day to the point where we forget to communicate with those whom we value- people in front of us. Limit your information consumption online, log off and talk to each other. Free your time to what you value.
Have you let a moment pass you by, restraining the chance to forgive and release the anguish we felt? Let it go. Forgive forgive forgive. The choice we make to accept the grace of forgiveness is to follow the biddings of the Divine. Recognize that and feel the connection with the Divine.
Are you afraid of what silence will conjure? It is frightening to acknowledge what we sometimes delay and refuse to accept. It is in these humble moments do we discover this journey will lead us to forming insights and truly acknowledge the blessings we received from above. Do it now.
Acting in congruence with once conscience is our loving response to God’s presence. We fine tune a contemplative spirit and this happens when we turn off the radio while driving, put into silent mode a gadget that takes us away from this mood or simply make time to keep quiet and listen to the voice that calls within. Has it been a practice of yours to keep in touch with our inner selves and review the events of the day? Listen! ….. And affirm your connection with the voice from within.
