Your answers will relate to fulfillment of your gifts and talents–dreams unmet, hopes unrealized, joys denied, possibilities unexplored or perhaps a simple need for relaxation and time spent with loved ones. First we fill our cups with beauty, music and pleasure in ourselves and our abilities, then we share our fullness with others.
Some of us might seek to fulfill our longings through other people, my soul pointed out, but this often leads to heartbreak. Instead of seeking completion outside of self, we are better served by going within to Source of all supply, where we travel “constellations of know-ledge and experience lighting cosmos beyond time and space.” Complete in ourselves, we move into oneness with Divine, which cures our fears and failings. We become all that we can and are meant to be.
This is what dreams are made of. Nothing is beyond our grasp, my still, small voice tells me, unless it is detrimental to our soul growth.
It is easy to awaken what is dormant within us. Just lie in bed in morning, listen to birds, and ask what your life can be in that moment, that day. Then live your prayer of life and watch what dreams may come.
May we live each moment as if it were our last, knowing there is no last moment in Creation, only One moment.
This is what Tracy Chapman tells us in her song, “Heaven’s Here on Earth”:
“If we have faith in humankind, respect for what is earthly and an unfaltering belief in peace and understanding/Then heaven’s here on earth.”
She sings it into being for us, that we might do same for ourselves: “We are born inside gates/With power to create life and to take it away/The world is our temple, world is our church/Heaven’s here on earth.”
