breath-cc-16193758604_c24b91a8cc_mWhen 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.

A Miracle A Day, Day 52

Mtime.flagEMORY is the human faculty the provides me with the miracle of time travel.  I can travel through time and apace to revisit the past.  With this miraculous ability I gather wisdom as I review past challenges or defeats.  I am encouraged that the future holds joy and harmony as I visit joyful times in the past.  I take care not to visit too long or become too engrossed in the past.  I use it as a gift to enhance the now moment and strengthen my resolve for the future.  A review of the past increases my understanding that life is in a continuous state of evolution, growing and changing to fit an ever increasing comprehension of wholeness. I am encouraged by the memory of those who have stood firm and given their lives for an ideal such as “all people are created equal.”  For it is these who give us shoulders to stand upon for an even greater ideal, “that we are all one.”  As I remember, I return to the now moment, strengthened, encouraged, and with great resolve to create the future that works for all.
