Rev. Stephanie’s Most Recent Sunday Messages
We all know that anger, resentment and unforgiveness don’t make us happy. But often we choose unhappiness anyway because we just can’t resist singing our “somebody done me wrong song” one more time. In other words, we’d rather be right than happy. But “owning” all of our reactions and experiences in life doesn’t make us wrong. It makes us powerful because only what belongs to us is within our power to change.
It is our belief that we are not free to change the way we see things, until what we see changes first, that causes us to marinate in fear, defensiveness, self-righteousness, and blame waiting for something or someone to change so that we can feel better. But nothing can change for us until there is change within us.
No matter who or what we blame for our feelings of unhappiness or the circumstances in our life, no one has the power to make us think, or feel, or react to anything we don’t choose to think, feel, or react to. No one can make us hate, and no one can make us love. Unless we take responsibility for the way we choose to experience life, unless we “own” all our thoughts, feelings, and reactions (no matter what they are), we can’t even begin to experience our Inner Power to choose and to change. When we feel like a victim in life we miss out on creating the joyous, beautiful, healthy, and abundantly good life we’ve been given the Power to create.
Discovering our Inner Power is not a way to finally be able to make the world be what we want it to be. It is the way learn we can transcend and dissolve within our consciousness every perception and every thought that doesn’t bring us feelings of love, peace, joy, and freedom.
If you’d like to “give birth” to a whole new you, and create the life you truly want to live, I invite you to listen to this podcast. And, if you can, join us for our Sunday Celebration Services at 11 AM. All are welcome!
Yesterday, as we celebrated earth mother love, we also celebrated Universal Mother Love, the One Love that has given birth to all that lives. There is only one beautiful child in all the Universe, and our Heavenly Mother has given birth to that Child—the Christ that is our true Self. All that is alive within us, all that is real about us, is the beauty, innocence and preciousness that is that Holy Child. We’ve been given Universal Love to extend to one another forever. We carry our potential to give birth to our Love Child in every moment because the Divine Heartbeat of Christ is the very life within us wherever we are.
But we won’t feel Its heartbeat as long as our attention is on shame, blame and unworthiness. Every situation in our life is an opportunity to say “yes” to Love’s growth within us, and to be willing to give It birth through us. It is our belief in human separation (in Love and something else), and our focus on the judgments we hold against self and others based on that “something else,” that cause the Christ within us to be stillborn. When a person or situation challenges us, it is our choice of conflict and separation over forgiveness and love that causes the Holy Life within us to appear lifeless as us. Conflict and unforgiveness cause us to feel sick, tired, joyless, confused, anxious, and restless.
The Good News is that no matter how mistaken we have been about self and each other, no matter how unloving and unforgiving we’ve chosen to be in the past, as air carries sound, as a stream carries water, as a pregnant woman carries her child, we carry the potential to love unconditionally right now. Just as our earth mother chose to say “yes” when she felt our heartbeat within her, we can learn to pause in each moment so that we can feel the Divine Heartbeat within us. If we would make that choice no matter what the situation, so much love would well up from within us that we could not fail but to say “yes” to the living Presence of Love, and allow It to be birthed through us, as us.
If you would like to learn more about how you can respond to life with love and experience more joy, peace and health in your life, I invite you to listen to this podcast. And, join us for our Sunday Celebration Services at 11AM, where life transformation is supported and all are welcome.
