Almost 20 years ago, I was present at the birth of a darling baby girl. The past 3 days I’ve had the privilege of interacting with the woman she has become. Wow! Esther, my Goddaughter, is absolutely delightful! It amazes me how someone so small and helpless grew up to be so beautiful and self-assured.
I moved away from Hawaii when she was 10, and missed the teen years, which sometimes makes me sad because we grow up and change so quickly. I’m sure every parent has felt the same. This is a reminder of how precious each moment of life is.
Kahlil Gibran wrote in The Prophet: “Your children are not your children. They are the sons and daughters of Life’s longing for itself.” Not only do I see how Esther has grown physically and in her personality, I notice her Spirit as well. It’s like her Spirit is the same as it always was, she’s just grown into It. And this is a beautiful thing!
I just asked: “At this time in your life, what would you say is your most important Life Lesson.” Esther responded, “That we have the power at any given time to be happy. It’s not the experience that makes us happy, it’s what we choose.”
Excellent piece of Wisdom for today!
SPIRITUAL MIND TREATMENT
How delightful to be aware of Life’s longing for Itself as us. Love and Law together, working through us, for us – Spirit in form. Each of us, a unique expression of The One, moving through time, expanding our awareness of Self.
I am so grateful for every expression of The Presence in my life. I honour each as Life made manifest. I acknowledge and appreciate our differences while celebrating our Oneness. I rejoice in the wisdom that I experience through them. I honour the Sacred Messages that each has for me, and the ones I have for them.
God is absolutely all there is – and is showing up wonderfully in my life!! My Life is more magnificent because of conscious awareness of this! How grateful and blessed I feel!! And so It is.
