A Miracle A Day, Day 80

wall.kissing gate.cc.9623112647_8183755ba9_qWALLS.  WALLS are a miracle?  Yes, WALLS can be a miracle.  They can be a fortress of solitude, a fortress of peace.  But of course they can be a barrier as well.  WALLS are a miracle when we build them with the gates of love, kindness and openness.  The WALL of Jericho was dismantled by Israel because it was a barrier to their triumph in the Promised Land.  The Promised Land is not a place.  It is a state of being.  And the WALL that must be dismantled is the one that creates separation and judgement and otherness.  A WALL that does this protects against nothing and creates a barrier to the only thing that can provide the promise we all seek.  The WALL that provides what we truly seek is one that blocks only distractions and a race consciousness that bombards us with evidence of separation, limitation and lack.  But this WALL is permeable.  It is dotted with gates and windows. This WALL allows the free-flow of Love and Kindness and connection.  This WALL is translucent and breathing.  This WALL supports a firmament of faith and oneness.  This WALL is built with mirrors in which we begin to see ourselves in one another and the luminous quality of the mirrors begins to reflect the Light of God in every soul.

A Miracle A Day, Day 75

Dreams Road Sign

DREAMS are the resulting miracle of the power of Imagination.  What can compare with the human capacity to DREAM?  In our waking moments we DREAM of what has not yet come into being and focusing our thoughts and energies on them we often bring them into manifestation.  Our sleep is punctuated with DREAMS that release the energies of the day, work out the problems parading through our minds, and inspire us with higher realms of thought.  It seems the capacity to DREAM, whether they are lucid or merely a foggy image, is the power that moves us ever forward on our spiritual path.  Joseph, the favored son of Jacob, was the dreamer.  Through his DREAMS he warned Egypt of drought and famine.  Through is DREAMS he lifted himself from prison and reunited the tribes of Israel.  Through our DREAMS, we too escape perceived bondage, drought and famine.  Through the power to DREAM and activate the power of Imagination we too reunite the tribes of Israel which are our spiritual powers.  Reunited, awakened in Spirit, we enter the promised land bringing that which we only DREAM of into the manifest world.
