Just go with me for a minute.
What if you were a spirit that came back to earth over and over again–as a different personality, with different people, in a different life. What if, each time before you returned you composed, along side the most trusted friend you have ever had, the journey of your life–the moments you needed to have, the friends you had to make and lose, the places you needed to be, the battles you had to fight.
How would it change the way you looked at your spouse? Your parents? Your children? Your community? The disease diagnosis? The sufferings you have carried? The triumphs you have found? Just think about it for a moment. How would you live your life?
“May the events that seek me come unto me; may I receive them with a quiet mind, through the Father’s ground of peace on which we walk.
May the people who seek me come unto me; may I receive them with an understanding heart, through the Christ’s stream of love in which we love.
May the spirits which seek me come unto me; may I receive them with a clear soul, through the healing Spirit’s Light by which we see.”
Adam Bittleston, Against Fear, in Meditative Prayers for Today
