This is a track from my cd. I have been a chanter for many many years so when my teacher encouraged me to do a chanting cd it seemed both an awesome and challenging idea.
Plus, it scared me a lot! “You want me to do what?” I was in a difficult place emotionally and didn’t want to ‘do’, anything. But ask any artist and they will tell you heartache is the stuff of greatness. By turning our difficulties around God blesses our pain creating beauty with the ashes of our burnt dreams. I had tons of fuel for a fire and my teacher helped me turn the fire into gold. I am grateful for his encouragement! God is great!
We have heard a thousand times to be grateful. In every thought, word, and deed, every minute, every second, of every day. Yet we have a hard time moving our consciousness outside of our small selves. So self involved does our inner talk become that we believe ourselves stars in a movie and the world our set. The truth teaches that our lives are nothing out side of the creative energy that sustains us, nothing, poof, gone! We actually do move, live, and breath through God’s being.
Maybe it is easy to have a grateful attitude when you walk through a constant stream of blessings, I don’t know. I have gained entrance to the spiritual world through the Planet Saturn, the planet of hard knocks and figure it out! There was a certain time in my life when the shit storm had grown so over whelming I fell to my knees and in doing so I was given the strength to get back up. God gave me this track on one of the days I was down on my knees and through the strength of this prayer I got up and finished recording the cd.
We can be experiencing the most difficult of circumstances. It happens to us all at some time and it is a test of what we are made of. All we have to do is walk in faith keeping the divine laws active in us and we will be led through our inner wisdom and spiritual intuition. This wisdom is a gift and it counteracts the imbalance we often face when we indulge our free will towards our animal nature. Knowing the laws of cause and effect makes toeing a righteous line, a much easier task! Believe me!
I hope one day for each person to understand their potential greatness and through their struggles they have learned to reach up for support and felt the guiding light. It is always there. We have often been remiss labeling it coincidence or accident. Nothing is done by chance, its something we have to learn.
There is a force leading us not by force but by course. Every time you trip yourself up, its something trying to get your attention. Every time you experience success, you have let the divine show itself through your unique voice. Open yourself and the force will move gifts through you, its how it works.
If it is still dark in your life, keep reaching, keep working to better yourself. I can tell you it can get really dark before the light of wisdom and understanding can reach us. It is through working with sacred vibrations that helps to elevate the spirit allowing us a glimmer of what could be, what shall be… Use this prayer of God to sustain you, share it with others. Let God guide you like God guides me.
