When I REMEMBER I become one with what may seem to have come apart. In the greater picture, nothing is ever disconnected, but in my mind or perception something may appear that way. I may feel disconnected from my spiritual nature. I may have lost touch with cherished memories. I may have lost touch with friends or loved ones by a move, a change of workplace, a conflict, or their transition from the physical realm. Whatever the cause, I have the ability to REMEMBER and draw the essence of that relationship into my conscious awareness. I can REMEMBER the sweetness of the first meeting with a beloved spouse. I can REMEMBER the first moment I held my precious child in my arms. I can REMEMBER the great joy of a childhood friendship. And in that moment, I reconnect. I experience oneness once again with what seemed lost, separate or grown apart. I once again feel the great gift of connection. And, I can REMEMBER that I am one with all beings; one with the Source of all things, one with the Allness of God. And in that holy instant I am REMEMBERED; all parts once again whole. In that moment I know that all members, all parts of the whole, all moments in time, all feelings, qualities and blessings are forever one in the mind and heart of God and I am enormously blessed and instantly made whole.
