Be a Blessing, Receive a Blessing

Only in quiet waters do things mirror themselves undistorted. Only in a quiet mind is adequate perception of the world - Rev. Kelly Isola

We learned from Rev. Kelly last Sunday that differences or even conflicts can be good. What? Can this be? Interesting since many of us spend a lifetime trying to avoid them! 

Let's face it, tensions are here to stay in one form or another in life. We won't eliminate all of them no matter how savvy or smart. Yet always available for us is the ability to give authentic blessings from the stillness of our soul. Myrtle Fillmore called on us to seek that secret voice of the most high, the origin of our blessings. Tension and stillness functioning together for good represent yet another paradox to consider on our spiritual adventure.

Sunday we will springboard from where Rev. Kelly left off.  Exploring the paradoxical idea of how tensions existing within ourselves and with humanity as a whole can be the sign posts pointing us to our good. But we need to be able to recognize these signs. Despite tensions we perceive as created by another, paradoxically it is then that we are called most to Be a Blessing, AND, Receive a blessing

Much like the story of Jesus calming the waters, we too have the ability to calm our own internal waters, allowing us more clarity, to realize the unique blessing we are to the World. There must be a willingness and commitment to then go forth and bless from the Christ aspect of ourselves. Not because we are supposed to but because it is who we are. It is part and parcel of our Beingness.  

Let's explore together Sunday mindful ways to take "actions of blessings" even when those very same waters we are in are being shaken and stirred. 

Let’s Thrive,
Rev. James
