I have a banner hanging in the classroom at the Center with a saying from the Dalai Lama. I absolutely love this quote and pray that each day, I can live by it.
May I become at all times, both now and forever,
A protector for those without protection.
A guide for those who have lost their way.
A ship for those with oceans to cross.
A bridge for those with rivers to cross.
A sanctuary for those in danger.
A lamp for those without light.
A place of refuge for those who lack shelter.
And a servant to all in need.
As the East Coast is healing from Hurricane Sandy, I hope we all can live by those words. The energy shift is strong and fast, just like the storm. As I watched the weather maps at the beginning of the week, it looked to me like sonar waves. The map showed the eye of the storm hitting New Jersey and then ripples and rings of energy spreading out over 900 miles, like an echoed message of Oneness. It was as if we were all connected in one big circle. The experiences of those in the upper states was the same as the lower states, and all the states in between. Some were hit harder than others, but still a common experience we had along the eastern seaboard and inland.
We need to recognize that all is in Divine Order. While we are going through it, it seems quite difficult. While we clean up the remainder of the storm, we give gratitude. While we watch TV and see the devastation, we send love and light to those most impacted. We are all One.
Someone shared this picture with me on Facebook. If you can’t read the sign, it says “We have power. Please feel free to charge your phone.” This is from Hoboken, NJ, one of the areas hit hard by the storm. Even in their own time of need, these people had power and were sharing their electricity with others who didn’t. It’s moments like these that we need to remember, even when not faced with adversity. Are you willing to share your light?
Can you be a guide for those who have lost their way? A place of refuge for those who lack shelter? We are moving into fifth dimensional living and it will require us to be all those things mentioned above. Step back and give gratitude for what you have. I, for one, have been counting my blessings every day, even before the storm.
My Joy Guide, Firefly, had a wonderful message for my evening class tonight. He said to tell everyone “Instead of saying Hello to someone, say HALO to them. That way you are always remembering their is a light inside of them.” Firefly is pretty smart for being a little one.
I will finish with a big HALO for all of you. Have a blessed life!
