Eternal Embrace

non-fiction No Comments »

taken in Portugal, May 2012

 

Blessed and complete Source, Divine One, Life, God, keep us ever mindful that we are always in your embrace. Only we can feel that we have wandered from you because in our hearts we understand that you never wander from us. We will try our very best to keep in the forefront of our thoughts that you cradle us every moment of every day. It is we who sometimes forget that our heads always rest upon your heart, that you continually and constantly hold our hands. For this, we are grateful~nannette kennedy

Do We Think About What We Say vs What We Believe?

current events, essay, non-fiction, thoughts No Comments »

Are spirituality and politics mutually exclusive? Or is there a way to bring forth our spirituality in to the political arena? Praying and meditation are a necessary part of solutions, but are they enough? EveryONE has those moments alone of asking themselves (on many and any levels) “what can I do to make a difference?”

In all cultures and religions on the planet there is a form of  “do unto others as you would have them do unto you” and I believe we would find most, if not all people say that they believe in these words. With much of what is airing on the news or printed in the papers regarding our politics and the condition of the earth, I feel compelled to ask the leaders from around the world: If you believe, REALLY believe in these words, how can you say some of the things you say? What would happen if we wrote to our leaders around the world with nothing more than the words from the Golden Rule and ask them to sit with these words before they speak. Can these words be something one only believes during spiritual or religious gatherings, but forgotten the rest of the time?
