As we enter the holiday spirit of heart-felt giving and the hastening approach of a New Year, there is an unsettled energy of uncertainty swirling around in the outer world. For many, their nervous systems are heightened, even if unnoticed below the radar of conscious awareness.
But we can choose to dissolve this subtle and overt pool of fear and reactive response by choosing to shed light and be a Light in the world. Such a shining example is the group of Maui residents who have generously taken a mile-long ti-leaf and orchid lei to the people of Paris and France. The message the organizers and volunteers have sent to Paris is “to remind the world of the existence and power of kindness, love and aloha – and to stand as a bright light to overpower the negativity in the world today.” The eight lei sections (as symbols for each Hawaiian Island) have added their love, unity, and spirit to the increasing gifts at the various memorial sites.
It is now even more vital for each of us to keep a tranquil mind and heart, to attend to our inner life—and to the extent that we actively withdraw several times a day for a few moments, we leave the turmoil and stress outside of our internal systems and thus give it no avenue of entry or power of effect. This is our powerful gift to the world.
The Law of Energy circulates from the inward to the outward, from the invisible realm of cause to the visible realm of result. So, when we can rest easily in our inner “atmosphere” of peace, kindness, goodwill, and joy, it becomes the reality for all the experiences of our outer life. As we gently release the “human scene” in our moments of silent reflection and listening, our heart centers in spiritual assurance. Divine Light and Love have never and will at no second ever leave us… An oasis of Light we are already.
In his final conversation with God, Neale Donald Walsch received an amazing collection of pearls of wisdom from the Divine Source.1 The following are a few of those spiritual pearls to take into your oasis of quiet contemplation in the days ahead and beyond into a new year of promise and increasing Light. Remember, you are the Light every moment! May these illuminative truths given by God be a comforting balm for your soul as they are to my soul.
“All of life is interconnected. No aspect or individuation
“All human beings are born with all the wisdom
“There is no truth except the truth that exists within you.
“Do not believe a single thing I say. Listen to what I say,
“No matter which way you go, you cannot fail to get Home.
“Everybody is doing everything for themselves.
“You are the cause of your own death.
“‘Death is an emergency’ because it is not about
“You are always immersed in the Divine.
