Rev. Stephanie’s Most Recent Sunday Messages
In the 1990s there was a popular saying, “Talk to the hand.” It was used as a rather rude way of dismissing what someone had to say or was trying to tell us, and it was accompanied by a “hand in the face” gesture. On Sunday we used that “dismissive hand gesture” to symbolize the human ego. The ego naturally dismisses what anyone else has to say because it is only interested in what “it” has to say. It is self-protective, defensive, and filled with judgments and opinions that it seeks to justify with every thought, word and action.
The “hand” that dismisses others has no eyes to see the inner beauty of another. No ears to hear the sincerity of another. No heart to feel the heart of another. But it does have a mouth, and it does a whole lot of talking in our head and in the world. The ego isn’t real, even though it certainly seems to be. It is merely a belief of separateness we hold in our mind, a tiny place of darkness within the intellect that only seems alive because we feed it with our creative energy and empower it with our fears.
When we’ve decided the person we’re talking to isn’t willing to listen to us, is lying to us, or out to hurt us in some way, our “hand” is talking to their “hand. We don’t commune with that person, or even have a conversation. We engage in “hand-to-hand” combat. It’s a battle of egos with no resolution. If we truly want to resolve conflict and live in peace and the unity of Love, we must come together with one another as One Life and consciously choose to speak heart-to-heart, spirit-to-spirit, Christ-to-Christ (which means without prejudice and opinions).
If you would like to experience more peace and less conflict in your life, I invite you to listen to this podcast. And, join us at our Sunday Celebration Services at 11AM, where we put Love into practice. All are welcome!
When we hear the word, “father,” we usually think of the obvious: “A male parent.” But father is also defined in the dictionary as “The founder of a lineage; originator that serves as a model; a predecessor, precursor, protector, provider.” Our lineage is spiritual because our life was founded within a Spiritual Universe. We are all sons and daughters of One Spirit. That is why Jesus called God, “Abba or Father.” That Father is our Father as well. The Father of Creation is the Original Source of all that Is, even now, even within this human experience. Our Father is everywhere life is, supplying all life requires in every dimension including the three-dimensions of this world.
We are in this three-dimensional experiential world to remember that what Jesus called Abba, though It goes by many names, is the Source of our only reality. We couldn’t live one moment without our Father’s Presence in us because that Presence is the life of us. Our true DNA (Divine Natural Ability) to live in love, joy, peace, freedom, and abundant good is one and the same as our Father’s. If we exist right now (in any form, no matter how that form appears at the moment), it is because our Father (aka Universal Mind) not only “thought us up,” but is thinking of us still.
Our powerful ability to think (any thought) and bring about an experience of that thought into our life is supplied, sustained, and protected by the Divine Energy of the Universal Mind in which we live that also lives in us. Because Universal Mind fills all space, including the space we call “our mind,” we think into It and are fulfilled by It. And, Its all Good! But we can only see our resemblance to the Good of our Father by looking beyond “human facts” to the spiritual resemblance within. It is there that we discover and experience what it means to be the sons and daughters of a Spiritual Father.
In The Way of the Heart we read, “You will never leave this plane, filled with conflict and suffering, as it seems to be, until you have lived the experience of walking this Earth wholly as the thought of Love in form with no other allegiances, but to Love.” When our only allegiance is to Love, we begin to see a Holy Family resemblance in everyone we meet because we see each other through our Father’s Eyes…the Eyes of Love. Seeing the Holy Light within our brothers and sisters is the same as seeing our Father because our Father’s DNA shines bright in every living being, no matter who; no matter what.
If you would like to discover your Spiritual DNA and experience the life of love, joy, peace, freedom, and abundant good you are created to live, I invite you to listen to this podcast. And, join us if you can for our Sunday Celebration Services at 11AM. All our welcome at The Life Enrichment Center of Flint…where the pure waters of Love flow!
