Meditation Reflections


Only as i follow
can i lead.

Only as i listen
can i know.

Only as i’m open
can i experience.

Only as i understand
can i share.

Only as I beckon
can you follow.

Only as you follow
Can you lead.

Only as you unite
can others follow.

Only as I call you
can you go.

Only as you go
can I go also.

A puzzle is strong when all the unique pieces retain their individuality, yet fit closely in purpose and design. We are pieces of a beautiful puzzle. We are coming together to find strength in shared purpose and design. Let our pieces complement and support one another as we each strive to make this planet a better place for all people.


Dear Father/Mother God,

I am your child.
You have many children.
We do not look or think or act alike, yet we are yours.
Teach us tolerance and acceptance.
Teach us to accept our differences, but judge behavior.
Teach us to promote all that is loving and cast away all that is not of Love.
Help us to set aside ego needs so that we may respond to the needs of others.
Help us to be, and to accept, your children.
Make us One again.
In the name of all that is Love.      Amen

Let love for You be
all I seek,
all I experience,
all I express.

Look first for God’s plan. It is never far away.

When life is not as you would like,
surrender and ask to know God’s Plan for your life.

In surrender, we receive.
In surrender, we know.
In surrender, life changes.

All change is Life in motion.

Do not seek to know; seek to give.

Love is giving. Only as we give as God has planned will we know fulfillment.

True life is spiritual purpose in action.

When we follow the Plan, all our needs are provided.

Do not seek to be rich. Seek to give richly.

Being rich is a state of mind.

We Are One

In the beginning, Love was.
Love was all.
Separation changed what was and created what is.
We all return to Source.
Source is God.
Source is Higher Being.
Source is the great I Am.
Source, God, I Am, Higher Being, Love, are One.
We are One.
We are One with God.
When we no longer see ourselves as separate,
we are One with Love.

Greed is only Fear, turned upside down.
When we are right-side up,
We know that what is needed
has already been provided.

When we follow the Plan
All our needs are provided.
When we follow the Plan
We are One.

The ultimate goal of all life is to return to the Oneness that is God.

We fear death until we realize we can never be alone.

In our darkest hour, God is a Presence, a Force, a peace within
Assuring us, we can never be alone.

When we let go, and allow the Plan to unfold
We see that what we truly wanted
Was there all along.

Love is trusting God with the final outcome.

When we care, we open our channels of giving which is Love. When we love, we are Love in the world. When we support another, we are God’s ambassadors. When we care, we are Love’s channels. Love is God.
Peace is God.
Wisdom is God. Thus Love, Peace and Wisdom are God expressing.

Smell the flowers while it is yet time.

Hold on only to that which is not transient.

Love endures.

Love never dies. Though bodies lose their reason for being,
the spirit continues to unfold.

Seeing is believing.
Not seeing is also believing.
Believe what is, whether seen by the eyes or the soul.

The soul alone can see beyond physical reality.

Allow yourself to see with the soul. All else has limitations.

The heart knows, the soul knows, the eye sees.
Knowing goes beyond seeing
as we experience Love through our total beingness.

Let Love be all you seek, all you experience, all you express.
All experience is only the curriculum of the soul.

Spiritual Empowerment

Believe in your worth. Only as one loves oneself can one see God.

Believe in the worth of every person, regardless of circumstance. Each has his/her own lessons.

Work for peace by living peacefully. Striving against what is may be counterproductive. Ask Peace to lead, and follow.

Love is joining, or unity. When we come together, we express God’s love in the world.

Know when to join, and when to wait. Another’s joining may not be indicated in this incarnation.

When you love, you are manifesting God’s love. Join with those who can, and release all others.

Find time. Time is what you have. Each person decides how this gift will be used.

Prioritize. Meditate first. Do as indicated. The rest will follow.

Do not focus on things that are not of your own spiritual journey. Each person is given time as needed to meet his/her specific purpose. Time must be used productively if what is designed is to be accomplished.

Your first responsibility as a spiritual sojourner is to meditate.
When you meditate, you know.
When you know, you can prepare.
When you are prepared, you can contribute.
When you contribute, you are God’s hands in the world.
