Me Plus God Equals Solution

We are the co-conspirator of our deepest dreams: you + God = solution.

If we desire a positive outcome, we must expect a positive outcome by believing the answers to our prayers are already here.

Spiritual truth tells us that every solution we seek is already completely resolved; the only barrier that exists is us.

Following a Ridiculous Path of Faith

I stumbled upon a woman of sincere faith in the elevator of a nursing home this week; it wasn’t so much a stumble as it was a nudge. The elevator was going up; I was going down. I got on without the slightest clue that I was riding in the wrong direction. But God was only nudging me in the right direction.

GeorgeAnn had a red rose pin on her lapel; I knew she was someone I needed to meet. Along with pointing me toward a monastery in Littleton, CO and sharing endless facts about certain saints and sisters, she laid a wisdom nugget on me which I’m sharing with you.

Love in Action

It has been one year since I had the blessed opportunity to discover the true meaning of Christmas. I have always been aware of the “reason for the season,” yet it wasn’t until I stepped away from the truth that I truly realized the deeper meaning of the “spirit” of Christmas: the kind that dwells within all of us, every single minute of the day.

On my search last year to rediscover my spirituality, it occurred to me that no amount of seeking outside of myself would ever uncover the connection I craved. I had been studying Judaism for the better part of the year, and in doing so got further away from my own truth. It was as if I listened to everyone’s truth but my own. I have always studied religion and been involved in a variety of experiences outside of my own faith tradition; it was my way of understanding who I am by gathering a plethora of wisdom from throughout the ages.

Build a Bedrock of Faith

When our foundation is made of fear and ego-based thoughts, we are more apt to fall through the quicksand of life’s eruptions.

After so many sinking moments in my life, I saw that I needed something to hold onto. Hope seemed to only settle my heart momentarily. Because ultimately hope isn’t faith. 

Like Jim Carrey says, “Hope is a beggar.” It breeds the same kind of fear resistance that our ego loves to hang onto, because it doesn’t require any action on our part.

The Truth Behind Spiritual Growth

True spiritual growth comes from the realization that you are inherently perfect just as you are.

The greatest lesson I have learned thus far is that endlessly seeking a deeper spirituality is often a distraction or a means to divert from ourselves for hope or understanding or meaning.

We may feel like a greater truth outside of ourselves will be our saving grace, and while its true that a Higher Power exists around us, the key is to understand it exists within us.

The Awakening

At the tail end of one of the most tumultuous times I have experienced in my journey of spiritual awakening, on the cusp of change in every major area of my life: relationships, career, and home, I ventured on a walk with my dog (as I do every Saturday). This Saturday was like any other except it felt completely different. My life is rumbling with so much movement that I have felt like I stepped onto a rollercoaster ride that simply would not stop.

Although I have surrendered to the change and granted it permission to work through me to create the life I dream of, I have yet to learn how to keep my cool when shit hits the fan. And trust me, it’s blowing all around me, sending me in fifteen directions at once.

The Crossroads

So, you know that crossroads I speak of often? The one at the intersection of love and fear?

I am once again at a major crossroads. MAJ. And as much as I talk love and am love, I still grapple with fear. We all do. And so my challenge lately is to live what I teach, and that is what I’m here to show you.

What If…

God is a cloud from which rain fell.

—Dejan Stojanovic, The Sun Watches the Sun

What if a hummingbird
is God’s way of telling us
to soak up the sweet nectar of life?

What if God gave us stars
so we can be reminded
of his light at night?

What if the stars
are a reminder
to search for our own light
even when we cannot see it?

What if a rainbow is His way
of telling us to seek out his Grace
even if we cannot see the end in sight?

What if our soulmate
is God’s way of ensuring
we reach our highest potential?

What if His love,
love for ourselves,
and love for others
is why we are here?

Look for God’s signs of love,
and when He rains down
in sadness or jubilant joy,
know that the result is love.

For we have to feel
all we feel in darkness
to return to the light inside.
