“God is the energy and frequency that joyfully permeates all things.”
When I read this line, I stopped. I took a deep breath in. My heart knew it was the Truth – so eloquently said. So perfect. So exact. So vast in it’s meaning. Tears came to my eyes.
Easy to know when I see flowers like the ones you see pictured above (in my mom’s front yard by the way :), but how does that work when I hear someone across the street yelling at their friend, “You f_____g jerk, get out of here!!”
God/Spirit/Divine is in all things, really????
If God is joyful and their words aren’t, does that mean they aren’t a manifestation of God?
The easy answer would be NO. But that’s not the Truth. The Truth is YES.
Not because it should be that way, but because it IS that way. The person who yelled that said something unskillful, yes, but is their entire being unskillful? No.
Ram Dass, a very well respected teacher from the Hindu tradition says to see folks when they are unskillful in their actions or behaviors as an “interesting expression of God.”
(I laughed out loud when I read this)
Is it possible to see the joyful manifestation of Spirit in your spouse who’s left their dirty plate on the counter yet again after you’ve asked a thousand times to please not?
Or your co-worker who’s piling ten more to do’s on top of your desk?
Or the child who’s pulling on your pant leg and won’t let go, screaming, “MOMMYYYYYYYYY” as loud as they can in the grocery store?
Or your body that has aches and pains and ailments that keep you from living the life you want to live?
Well isn’t THAT an interesting expression of God?
I know, the mind says, NO, not in THAT moment.
And that is where all that meditation time, breathing techniques and yoga classes can either pay off or do nothing. I regularly experience both.
The difference is, I don’t react nearly as long, or as strong, or go into old habits of avoidance like I use to. That’s where the practice has paid off every time.
When I can stop and take a breath and literally ask the question, “What would love do now?” I find there is an answer. I may not be able to come from that place right in that moment, but it at least gives me pause for reflection and an intention on how to move forward from there.
Here’s the dealeo – ask this same question when you’re being hard on yourself. When you feel guilty about something you’ve done or not done, or berating yourself for something you’ve said. What would love do now? Put your hand on your heart, close your eyes and be with the question.
This question is not only the path to more peace within your heart, but more alignment in your entire body. Whether you’re wanting to align with your highest self or if you’re on the healing path or both.
The vibrational energy and frequency of love is one of the highest. It transforms and transcends the emotions of fear and doubt. It sends signals to all the cells in the body to regenerate and be healthy by repairing that which is ailing (scientifically proven).
The only side effect? Feeling love.
What a bonus!!
And the next time you have an opinion about someone – whether it has to do with their looks, political views, past hurts or ways of being in the world that are different from yours, try saying, “Isn’t that an interesting expression of God!”
