A Miracle A Day, Day 82

idea.cc.7650740066_bb5e4ea62b_qIDEAS spark possibilities.  They are a miracle of the mind.  IDEAS, like dreams, access the power of imagination.  IDEAS are constantly connecting us to the divine and bringing the future into the present moment.  An IDEA is a thought that sparks a new way of being or a new way of doing something.  For an IDEA to take hold it is vital that the old way of doing, thinking or being is released.  Without that act of release, the IDEA has no room to peak through or take form. IDEAS are miracles continuously popping into our minds, inspiring us to create something greater than the current experience. God once had an IDEA.  It was an IDEA of a world in perfect balance, populated with spiritual beings that would have creative IDEAS themselves, IDEAS that would be fruitful and multiply.   Open the space for a new IDEA.  Honor the new IDEA of another.  Work together to try new IDEAS and begin to manifest an entirely new way of being.  Right now, this very moment, someone has a better IDEA of how the world can become a thriving, fruitful place that works for all.  Perhaps, we can join together and release the way things have always been to make room for the Divine IDEAS that will carry us to the next phase of spiritual evolution.

A Miracle A Day, Day 50

mud.cu.dreamstimefree_286757MUD, the miraculous mixture of the elements of earth and water is a useful substance in the world of form.  In the late sixties I recall a song I heard at a local coffee house (yes coffee was big then too) called “MUD.”  The lyrics were something like this, “MUD, MUD, glorious MUD. There’s nothing quite like it for soothing the blood.”  I loved that song and all these years later the tune comes to mind as I wipe the MUD from dog’s feet on a spring morning before letting him walk on the rug.  It comes to mind as I add water to the earth creating a receptive mixture for the plants I will place there to grow and bloom.  It comes to mind when I see architectural ruins of MUD shelters and containers made from the surrounding clay.  What an ingenious substance! And what a metaphysical message!  The earth, the world of form, becomes more pliable, more useful, more soothing when water is added.  Water has many metaphysical meanings, but here, let us look at its qualities of cleansing, quenching and nourishing.  Water in its most spiritual form cleanses the mind and heart of worrisome thoughts and limiting beliefs. Water in its Spiritual form quenches our desire for spiritual unfoldment. Water nourishes what grows in the earth and the water of Life nourishes the soul, that which is meant to be fruitful and multiply.  When water is mixed with the earth it creates a substance that can provide shelter, form a container, and feel luxuriously soothing as it squishes between fingers and toes.  MUD, the mixture of earth and water, body and Spirit; there’s nothing quite like that for soothing the blood.
