"What you are is God's gift to you, what you become is your gift to God.” – Hans Urs von Balthasa
I like that word “gift.” We usually associate it with a material thing, don’t we? While it is great and amazing to receive material blessings, the true value of what is received is the energy behind the gift. When one gives with a pure intention of blessing another, there is an energy exchange of love in its purest form. No agenda. No attachment to the outcome. Only love. That is the blessing we receive from our Creator in the form of these human bodies. They are a gift that we can then make what we want out of the life we have been given. We can waste our time in these bodies and many do. We can also use this time to more fully understand the meaning of living and all that it entails – and many do. Some of us are here for an instant, some for a second and some for a minute. During that time, we make choices and we try to wrap our human brains around our experiences. Some days are harder than others. Some days the whole world does not make sense, like today. So many young lives taken, so much heartache and pain of the loved ones left behind. There really is no way to make it make sense. So we weep and we get angry and yes some curse God as if he pulled the trigger. People cope in various ways, so whatever works in the moment to alleviate your pain is what is right for you. We will never figure it all out and we can drive ourselves insane trying to. Or we can go into acceptance that we do not have all the answers and live our lives in faith that there is a power greater than us who does see the bigger picture. I’ll go with that option.
Dear Angels, many in our world are dealing with heavy hearts tonight. Death is inevitable in our lives yet when it seems so senseless to us, it is harder to release the emotions that come up. We soothe each other with prayers and empathy but that does not fill the hole that happens when tragedy strikes. I know there is no answer that can be given to make it make sense but if you have any word for us, please help our troubled souls tonight.
Dear Ones, we see your beautiful loving hearts. Indeed it is difficult to accept when a loved one is swept away in the blink of an eye with no preparation for that event. When you come into the human experience you understand that your exit point could happen in any given moment. There are no guarantees that you will awaken from your sleep or that you may be in a place where tragedy will strike and you will be taken out. However your ending happens, know that there are no accidents. We know you cannot comprehend when it looks like it did in today’s incident, senseless and horrific. Dear Ones, know that those who moved on are in no pain. The pain is with those of you left with questions without answers and hearts drenched in grief. We encourage you, Dear Ones, to turn your wounds into wisdom. Staying broken only magnifies the tragedy. Rise up, lift your head and search your soul for strength. Out of the ashes a phoenix will rise. When you bond together, you rise together. Let each new struggle breathe life into that phoenix. Every failure and every heartache is an opportunity. Each one of you has to figure out what to do with that opportunity. Will your phoenix make it out of the ashes? It is up to you, Dear One.
Dear Angels, thank you. I love you. Namaste y’all.
Today, I promise that even when my heart is breaking with grief I will hold on to hope.
What you are is God's gift to you, what you become is your gift to God.” – Hans Urs von Balthasa
