Just as we are in awe of the legendary accomplishments of mankind through the years, now and in the past, we are also in awe of nature and all divine things that were presented to us from day one of our lives.
Within mankind’s creation, a baton is handed to us from a deeper source — this source is manifested in nature, and, in us too. Herein is a creative cycle where we pass on our divine contributions from one to another.
Whilst we are captain of our vessel, the thrust of waves and winds come from a deeper source guiding and challenging us. This guiding power may feel distant, like it is in the background of life at times and we may call out to it from time to time. Some call it God, the universe, the heavens, the angels. Some also call it Love.
And sometimes, we may play hide and seek with this power — noticing some things in life and ignoring others. The time has come, to know, feel and understand this source as part of us, everpresent. And for us to see this God and Love as part of others too, everpresent. Namaste! (translated as ~ ‘I bow to the divine in you.’)
We can acknowledge and accept, in our sacred instincts, that we have been given everything to be grateful for. As we understand this sense of giving, we can continue to create more and receive more. We will be able to give back to creation and empower our lives, live more deeply.
The seeds are given to us. The water is given to us. The land is given to us. We now may just nourish our spiritual garden and grow.
“In the sketches of history, we pay tribute to the inventor of the helicopter. Have we also paid tribute to the creator of the dragonfly? Perhaps, if we may engage in that kind of tribute, we would be living more deeply.” – Vishal Singh
