"We look forward to the time when the power to love will replace the love of power. Then will our world know the blessings of peace." - William Ellery Channing
I hold in my hand a vial of sand given to me today by a Tibetan monk. I don’t believe in coincidences but rather in synchronicities. The golden weaving of threads bringing about miraculous events in our lifetime is precious and demonstrates the power of Spirit to show us the One Unified Field of consciousness. Last year I was virtually introduced to Bob and Noel, who subsequently invited me to their home to housesit and care for their precious furbaby, Magi, as they traveled to conduct a retreat in Costa Rica. We have stayed in touch. My friend Ruth and her sister are visiting Florida, where I happen to be for the winter, and she invited me to come spend a few days with her on the West Coast, which I gladly accepted as I love any opportunity to be with her. As I live my life out loud and share what I am doing with the Peace On Earth Tour on social media, Bob and Noel happened to see where I currently am and contacted me. They will be here soon in the very same little town where I am. Also, I have just recently connected them with Ruth. So back to the Tibetan monk and the vial of sand. In the message from Bob and Noel, they asked if I saw the monks. I thought it might be an autocorrect thing in the message so asked what they meant. It turns out that there is a group of Tibetan monks who tour cities and spend a week creating a peace mandala out of sand. The process is that “for five full days, they work with intense devotion and concentration, scraping and tapping colorful sand onto the canvas to create a cosmos with symbols of the world’s religions — only to ceremoniously destroy it upon completion.” Today was the last day for them to be here where I am and the day they tear apart the mandala and return the sand to nature. I called the church where this was happening, and we barely had time to get ourselves together to rush out the door and drive a half hour to attend the ceremony. It was so awe-inspiring and breathtaking to watch the beautiful piece of art being dismantled ceremoniously as these seven monks were totally immersed in spirit, chanting, and focused on what they were doing. “What this mandala represents is, when we create it, it's such a beautiful art, but at the end, we will destroy it, which represents impermanence. So, in every day, every life, every minute, something is changing,” said Geshe Khenrap Chaeden, the lead monk. The tradition dates back 2500 years , and the monks are under threat as the Chinese government continues to introduce new policies that restrict expressions of Tibetan language, culture, and religion.
Dear Angels, I feel so blessed as I observe synchronicities in my life and can see the weaving of the thread that brings people and events into my life to experience. This event has had a huge impact on me, and it increases my desire to learn more and expand my awareness of other cultures and the beauty of how we all fit together in the tapestry, just as the mandala shows.
Dear Ones, each person on your planet fits perfectly in the puzzle that is the Oneness. Sometimes, you are able to see the puzzle pieces around you, and when this happens, it seems miraculous. It is all part of the Divine plan. When you are ready and open to receiving, these miracles present themselves for you to enjoy and participate in. Just like looking at a road map that connects places, when you step back and observe your life, you can see the weaving of that golden thread connecting you to people and places that are in the Divine plan of your life. Trust the process, Dear Ones, and enjoy the moments of elation. There are miracles every moment. Seeing them builds your faith and trust.
Dear Angels, thank you. I love you. Namaste y’all.
Today, I promise to remain open to miracles and see the weaving of the thread that brings them my way.
p.s. Ruth saw a manatee today!
