Reverend Maryum's Weekly Prayer
 
I Live in Divine Love

I know there is only God. Spirit is perfect peace, calm, clarity and love. Being one with this love gives me a sense of heaven on earth. I know I am nurtured and supported.
 
Love expresses in me, as me in this moment. There is no separation because love is all there is, and I am one with it. I speak my word, claiming and accepting the peace, calm, and clarity that come from my sense of oneness with the Divine. Even during dark times in my life, I focus on love and it outshines the darkness.
 
As love shines forth, I am filled with gratitude for this truth. By the power of my word spoken into Law, the invisible becomes visible. My intention is made manifest, and Truth is realized. I know it is done. And so it is. Amen.
Rev. Maryum Morse

Intuitive Card Reading just for You!
 
I am pulling a card from 
"Archangel Power Tarot Cards"
by Doreen & Radleigh!
 
Three of Gabriel
"Prosperity arising from wise planning. Time to take the next step. Optimistic plans that turn as expected."
"You've made some good choices, and now our ship is coming in! As you wait for it to dock, it's an excellent time to consider your next steps. Long-term planning is a good idea. What is our next adventure? What actions are required in order to make that endeavor a reality?
 
You may need to travel for business purposes. Review your options while you keep your enthusiasm high.
 
The work you've done so far will yield fantastic results, so there's no need to worry! If it takes a little while for you to get a return on your financial or energetic investment, just have patience.
 
Additional meaning of this card: Self-confidence. Teamwork. Optimism. An expected outcome."
 
JUST A THOUGHT (or two) ABOUT THIS CARD:
What stands out for me with this card is: Keep your enthusiasm high and Optimism
 
Here's why:
Keeping your focus is sometimes difficult in the tide of endless distractions going on.   I recently saw a very nostalgic movie the other day which reminded me of the slow, taffy pulling pace of yesterday - thirty to fifty years back. A time that was relatively technology free - where you could actually get still enough, lift off the needle from the record for just a moment - ask yourself
"Self, how can I serve you best?"
"Self, what steps are necessary to further my dreams?"
"Self, is this plan of action I'm taking on headed where I truly want to be?"
 
So, about that plan...You're on your course, you're headed for new horizons and leaving behind where you have been.   Maybe you've been humping up your hillside so hard, that sweat is almost blinding you.
 
This is the time to review the plan. Get a bearing on surroundings. Set a spell and allow your breathing to slow down and just listen to the sounds of nature and the sound of your inner guidance.  
 
Once you have re-connected to that wellspring of hope, have reaffirmed that this is indeed what you signed up for - you are 100% on board and ready proceed without any unnecessary doubt, this card says "You're on the right path and it's going to be FABULOUS!!!"
 
So once you're reassured, then you can let that childlike heart of yours get EXCITED from anticipation as as the joyfulness that comes when you are truly prepared for a NEW BEGINNING!
 
The Three of Gabriel shows a picture of an ocean built clipper ship with its myriad sails filled with the winds of fortune! You are embarked upon a glorious new journey, secure in the knowledge that you KNOW how to take care of business.
 
There's not one doubt in your prowess coming to the forefront of your beingness. This is the fuel of your journey - so be CONFIDENT, be ENTHUSED, be GLAD, JOYFUL and revved up! Because Boy Howdy! You are headed on a course charted for success!
 
And as I always say - YOU ARE NOT ALONE! The team is assembling and you are guided inexorably towards the fulfillment of your dreams.
 
Let's delve into the symbols
Here's why -
 
"Three - the magic number has shown up again this week - is associated with communication skills and feelings self-expression. Adventure, creativity, and humor
 
Meaning in a nutshell:
That you should remember that Life is an adventure to be expressed with a wide open heart, unleashing your creativity in all its splendor.

There has never been a person like you before. Your passions and self-expression is much desired and required in this space and time NOW.
 
Retracting and shrinking away in a corner does not serve anybody here, least of all you.
 
Next symbol - Archangel Gabriel - traditional tarot calls Wands - Gabriel is a guardian of truth and divine messenger.
This tells me this card means DIVINE GUIDANCE is tap tapping you on the shoulder. Whispering directions to follow, to clear up confusion and urge you to know that though you may not have ever piece of the plan mapped out - the breadcrumb trail is intact.
 
Watch in the near future of unmistakable signals and guidance. The right person, tool and place will be revealed.
 
So be of good cheer, keep the thoughts about who you are and where you are headed in the most positive of terms. No unfair judgy behaviors. Practice joy, ditch the heavy scowls and dark broodiness.
 
The Heathcliff manic depressive routine need not be. You are light. You are peace. You are love.
 
The team assembles just as you need the help.
 
Here is a quote to help illustrate:
 
"It isn't all over; everything has not been invented; the human adventure is just beginning.""
Gene Roddenberry
 
Here's an affirmation to use to help get in the flow:
 
Deep at the center of my being is the unlimited potential of the Creative & the Divine!"
 
  And so it is.
And So It Is.

Optimism....
 
"Optimism is the secret of self-reliance. Self-reliance is the secret of a dynamic power. A dynamic power is the secret of an immediate success."
Sri Chinmoy
~
Optimism
More and more I have come to admire resilience.
Not the simple resistance of a pillow, whose foam
returns over and over to the same shape, but the sinuous
tenacity of a tree: finding the light newly blocked on one side,
it turns in another. A blind intelligence, true.
But out of such persistence arose turtles, rivers,
mitochondria, figs-all this resinous, unretractable earth.
- Jane Hirshfield


   
 
    
What Brother Ernie said:
 
 
The Meek Shall Inherit the Earth

 
This is a teaching of non-resistance. War lords and plunderers of human possessions have come and gone. Kingdoms have risen only to crumble in dust and become numbered with past events. Passion and lust for power have strewn the earth with destruction; it would seem as though the meek had lost out in the titanic struggle for temporal supremacy.
In the midst of this drama of human existence, Jesus declared that the meek shall inherit the earth.
 
Let us inquire if his teaching was a true one.
Do we teach our children to follow the steps of a Caesar and a Napoleon?
Or do we tell them the story Of Jesus or Buddha.
 
The cross is mightier than the crown and we teach our children that love masters everything. The meek shall inherit the earth. To whom have our artists turned for inspiration and that quickening power which enables them to depict the ideal? Not to the war lords nor even the captains of industry, -- but to the meek. What characteristics are set before us as being worthy? Have not faith and belief in the divine Goodness been the theme of our greatest singers.

Who could write a beautiful story about hell? But heaven and love have inspired thousands to the uplifting of humanity. Jesus was right when he said that the meek shall inherit the earth. They have done so and will continue so to do.
