Let love rule

Yesterday I saw a fish skeleton in the shape of Jesus on the cross and was awed that God gives us such reminders of His great love in our everyday lives through creation itself. Bless His wonders we behold.

Sometimes we become blind to the wonders around us and have to get away from our routine and out of our everyday selves to discover again who we are, what are our goals, so we can continue on our path.

It is but a pause, a breath that refreshes us. We so often get caught up in daily life that we forget the importance of the pauses in life. The angels are here to remind us. As children, all life was a discovery of wonder, but as we mature it seems we put on blinders to life, we forget to take time in the name of obligations, and so it passes us by and we wonder "what happened", "where did it go?".

Life is what happened while we were too busy to know. That is why the pauses are so very important. They put us back on track, open our eyes and hearts to the world around us.

We need to turn off some of the world news in favor of today's life. To be more aware of cause and effect. To be less depressed by global events, to focus on the daily "what can I do to make a difference?" thinking.

If each of us lives attempting to do some small good, this would, in turn, have a global effect. If we each lived in peace, then peace would be achieved, if we each shared, then abundance would abound. If we each loved unconditionally all our brothers and sisters, then loved would rule the world.

Hatred cannot exist if we all love. Hunger cannot exist if we all share. There can be no doubts if we all have faith and peace and joy would abound. We say this is impossible and so we don't try. Se we have to start with "me". Let there be peace on earth and let it begin with me.
