I am enough

Bill Tabor used to speak of minster’s belly. A feeling in your gut that would help you know when it was time to speak in meeting. I know that feeling when a message comes upon me and there is a physical feeling of great urgency to share what seems at the moment to be an important universal truth that would benefit all beings;

And then the mind goes to work and I begin seeking the “right” words, with a good opening line and catchy closure.

I am undeniably and gratefully blessed with the gift of being close to the Spirit and clearly hearing and sharing the messages She chooses to share with us all.

What is clearest to me now is that I have enough of words.

I am enough.

When I do need to speak, I wish to speak from a place of calm and equanimity.

I pray to exercise my use of the languages of silence and creativity to minister with universal comprehension of message.

May I always be teachable.

Being silenced by others has revealed it’s self to be a great gift.

Standing, sitting, walking and lying down in Grace and Simplicity is sufficient.

Stand with me.

Pray with me.

Be enough.

Wealth consists not in having great possessions
But in having few wants.

The Shelf

I (think) i need:
a new car
a new home
a new partner
a new job.
So i bought a shelf
I am ripping apart everything i have control over
and putting it on the shelf.
Nice and neat, new ,organized.
There is room on my drawing table to draw.
We'll see what comes next.
