Spiritual Awakening: Striking GOLD!!!
I was at The South Florida Gold Workout today (7/19/2015) in my capacity at PA Announcer and Team Ambassador when I met Nate Thomas. Through out my spiritual awakening I have had this sense of striking gold and such was the case with Nate Thomas as he and I had a deep conversation of being a complete person. As I left the gym I thought wow that was a golden moment. As I drove to Starbucks I kept thinking how many times do we miss opportunities to strike gold?
While speaking with Nate Thomas I mentioned The Layup 4 Lauren Challenge and he immediately had all the players at the work out participating. I even participated. I missed my layup and went to www.layup4lauren.org and made my $10 Donation. I then set up a page at https://curestartsnow.z2systems.com/np/clients/curestartsnow/campaign.jsp?campaign=124&fundraiser=81061&team=39 and set a goal of raising $300. I hope the readers of this article will help to strike gold by making a donation. Lauren Hill taught us about striking gold by taking a debilitating disease that would eventually take her life and facing it everyday living life to the fullest. The South Florida Gold will use the lessons that Lauren Hill taught us to strike gold. Today ask yourself how you are striking gold in your personal, professional, and spiritual life?
Devon Sills was given quite the blow when his daughter Leah was diagnosed with Cancer but he was able to strike gold when the Cincinnati Bengals kept him on their practice squad so that his daughter could receive the treatment she needed as shes says to beat up cancer. As I watched the ESPYS and heard his heart felt speech I realized that when we are connected to GOD that we can take action and overcome any challenge that is put in front of us. I learned that we all have the opportunity to strike gold by simply living a life of purpose and allowing the divine in us to come out and be seen by others. It is when we realize that we have gold inside of us that we can create golden moments that bring peace, love, joy, and prosperity into our lives. Devon and Leah’s story is shared by many families and it is nice to know that their faith bonds them together so as to give a glimmer of hope to everyone. Read More→
Spiritual Awakening: Sunrise Sunset!!!
Today’s entry is inspired by The Fiddler On The Roof song, Sunrise Sunset as it illustrates many of the aspects of the spiritual awakening process. In our spiritual development we will be given many opportunities to reflect and in reflecting learn so that we can move forward on our path toward enlightenment. If we break it down further we can look at it in a daily perspective as when the sunrises say this is the day that the lord hath made be glad and rejoice in in it. Then as the day unfolds come from a position of gratitude and watch what positive things begin to happen. As the sunsets we can then thank GOD for the day and reflect on all the good things that happened for us. Then as we turn in for the night we can relish in the fact that joy comes in the morning. In taking action to come from a position of gratitude, peace, love, and joy we can enjoy all of our sunrises and sunsets.
So many times while we are in the sunrise of our life we look toward tomorrow and sometimes we miss out on the great things that are happening for us today. Sometimes we get so caught up in making plans we miss out on the peace, love, joy, and prosperity which is happening right now for us. As we celebrate our sunrises we must take action to live our life on purpose so that every ember of our being shines bright for others to see so that we can illuminate the entire world. As we celebrate our sunrises we must also hope that when we experience the sunset that it is not our last. On the day of your last sunset will you be able to reflect and I say I lived a life of joy and my life brought joy to others. If you are able to do this then you can say to GOD, The Ascended Masters, The Angels, and all who that have entered The Kingdom Of GOD that you lived a complete life.
With each day a new sunrises giving us the chance to be of service and value. Many times we get so caught up with the noise that we do not hear the real message that GOD and The Angels is delivering. We get so trapped by the human existence that we forget to let the sun shine in and become the spiritual beings that we are. When we become more in tune with our spiritual self we are able to create a bond of mind, body, and spirit that creates a oneness consciousness where peace, love, and understanding rule the day. When the sunrises and we are answering our calling and being the change we want to see in the world our sunsets become more and more beautiful and our final sunset is then magnificent as GOD prepares a place in his kingdom for us to dwell for ever and ever.
As we celebrate our days cherishing the sunrises and the sunsets we will often find ourselves wishing for one more day with those that GOD has called home. Well each day you can have a day with them knowing that they are angels watching over you and that you can simply speak to them and you will feel their presence giving you that one more day that you sought to celebrate another sunrise and another sunset.
From every sunrise and every sunset let your light shine. Each day find a way to come alive and be of service and value to the community and make it a goal to touch at least one life by letting your light shine. When you do this each and every sunrise and sunset will pleasurable. It is when we make it a point to embrace our spirituality and move forward in a positive direction toward your goals and dreams that you will be fulfilled.
In every sunrise and every sunset remember that the sun shines on your shoulder and even in a rainstorm there is a bit of sunshine there to warm you. Let the sunshine on your shoulder and be a beacon of hope for others to see daily.
As you experience the sunrise tae a moment and breathe and then commit to making the day the best day possible. At sunset take a moment to sit in quiet reflection remembering all the good that happened in the day. In doing this and practicing gratitude you will see that not only has your life been brightened but you have brightened up the lives of others. Namaste!!!
