Everything That You Do is Important

Everyone is important.  We are all on our individual journeys of discovery and spiritual understanding.  Do not compare your journey to that of anyone else: for it is individual and unique to you.  It really does not matter what anyone else is doing, for everyone else has their own individual journeys and learnings (lessons).

What matters in so far as anything matters is that you embrace your journey and your spirituality as fully as you can.  Hopefully, you can find some inspiration in the following poem which was written in 2009.

If you are uncomfortable with the use of the word “child”, as I was when I wrote it, please remember that you are a child of the divine (God).  We all are.

 

Everything That You Do is Important

Everything that you do is important.

The food that you consume at breakfast is the source

of your physical nourishment for the start of your day.

Do not be distracted by thoughts of what may lie ahead of you in your day.

.

Savour your food.  Taste each mouthful.

Chew thoroughly to aid proper digestion.

Be in the moment. Live this moment to the full,

for it is the only one that is real.

.

Everything that you do is important.

Consider the words that you speak before you utter them.

Do they come from your heart?

If not, do you really need to say them?

.

Do not think that every moment in a conversation must be filled with words.

Sometimes there is a need for truthful silence…

Think about that.

.

Everything that you do is important.

Each breath that you take helps to sustain you.

.

How is your breathing?

Are your breaths slow and deep, filling your whole diaphragm?

Are you aware of your breathing?  Or, are you just going through the motions?

.

What is your haste child?

Take your time…  Breath deeply… and fully.

Be aware of your breathing.

.

Everything that you do is important.

Each thought that you have is a creative interaction with the world.

Each thought has constructive power… to create and build a better world…

or to destroy and tear it down.

.

Let each thought that you have be peaceful… and energizing…

and full of well-being.

.

Your life is precious, child.

It is a jewel of value beyond all estimation.

Do not roll it in the mire, or lose it through a careless action.

.

And most important of all… do not lose it through mindless inattention…

wasted moment after wasted moment.

.

Everything that you do is important.

Do what you must do… now… in this moment,

and let the next moments follow as they will…

one moment at a time.

God bless.

Shine Little Droplet, Shine

I believe we are all like droplets of the divine (consciousness), merged in a cosmic “ocean”.  If this sounds strange to you please take it as hyperbole or as an over-the-top allusion.  This poem was written in 2016.  I will mention before we start that I have used a rather clumsy word-form “al(l)ways” because I wanted to suggest both always (eternity) and all ways (all inclusiveness).

Shine Little Droplet, Shine

Walk lightly on the Earth. Dance joyously with others.

Sing with all the power of your breath…

and all the love in your heart.

.

Peace is our natural state of being.

Our souls vibrate in harmony with all beings

and resonate with truth.

.

There is no god but god.

The divine power reigns supreme.

The divine permeates and radiates from…

and expresses… all that is.

.

God is one…  God is all…

God is infinite…  and immanent…

and eternal…  al(l)ways.

.

Know that you are just one miracle… on one ball of rock

in one solar system, in one galaxy…

and you are so very small.

Yet, you are complete…  and you are perfect…

just as you are.

.

You are a perfect expression of the divine power, Itheshe.

You are just one drop in a vast, eternal ocean…

but, you are divine.

In you is all the essence…  all the perfection,

and expression of God…

.

You are remarkable.

Now is the time to be…

that wondrous, shiny pearl

in God’s omnipresent ocean.

.

Flow, little droplet, flow.  Be that faultless pearl.

Be the holy…  shiny being of light and love,

that is who you truly are.

.

Be at peace…

Give up your “littleness”…  and your illusions.

You are not a body…

You are not separate…  or alone.

You are intimately connected to all beings…

and to God.

.

Shine, little droplet, shine.

Dance and sing and shine!!

.

God bless.

.

Thanks for reading.  If you are unfamiliar with the expression “Itheshe” and would like to understand its use, please read the explanation at the end of  my last post: “The Creator’s Prayer”.

I wish you a peaceful, productive week.  Keep creating positively.  Things will improve soon.

In light and love,
