How do we put into words the “Ultimate Gift?”
How do we express something beyond words?
In my previous blog, I stated that when we agree to Love as our Birth-rite that God speaks to us through everything. All we have to do is hear and act on what we hear. I have been doing this for years now and the miracles are countless. The miracle of Saint Erasmus tops the list though.
Let’s get right to it:
I was guided to a bookstore not too long ago. As I walk in, the owner immediately asked me why I was there. I spit out the top 5 things that came to me. He then proceeded to show me the area of Religion and Saints. I stood silent for a minute and said, “No. This is not it. I need something outside of the box.” He replied, “Well, Nature and Philosophy are across the room.” I stood silent for a minute and said, “No. This is not it either.” Mind you, the sign in the yard of the bookstore said “The Y.” The power is in the Why. He then replied, “Well, have a look around then.” So, again, I stood silent and looked at the shelves of books right in front of me. This was between the left side of Religion and the right side of Philosophy. It was everything that I was studying. Every book title was my life in a nutshell. So I thought.
I stood in astonishment and paused for what seemed like an eternity. Then, with the finest tuning fork of mind, turned around and walked up the steps to the first floor of the bookstore. On these steps layed books, again, in a very particular manner. I quickly glanced at the covers of them all and grabbed the red book. No image. No words on the cover. Just a plain red book. I opened to the first page and the word “WISDOM” was right there in front of me.
Wisdom playing out in my life looks like this:
“According to the Bible, number 17 is a symbol of victory and perfection. It refers to the spiritual perfection in the first place. We should have in mind that 17 is actually the combination of numbers 10 and 7.” The Number 17 is a stronghold in my life for many reasons. One being it is how old my Brother was when he died. Two being that 17 years later the tree that transformed his life from physical to spiritual was cut down. A walnut tree to be exact. “Walnut holds the powers of the breath and inspiration. Symbolic of confidence and mental wisdom.”
The night after Eric died many of us went out to this tree, out in the middle of the country, to try and make sense of what happened. I remember people standing in the street. I was by the tree. Like a bolt out of the blue, a rush of peace came over me and I knew Eric was ok. I joined the people in the street and yelled it from the mountain top. I don’t remember anyone hearing me though. May my voice, through the Hand of God, be heard. May it be heard with Love, Understanding and Inspiration to help the Greater Good.
When Jesus died on the cross for us, he layed it all down. He was the Son of God made flesh, came to help save the world with Mercy and Forgiveness and then suffered the crucifixion. Luke 23:34: Jesus said, “Father, forgive them, for they do not know what they are doing.”
I do believe with every fiber of my being that God uses people as vessels to help save this world. I do believe that Jesus is the Son of God. I do believe that he brings us The Way. Over and over again I find myself going to this Truth. It really is everything. It is Simple yet it is the Ultimate Gift to us in this life.
Luke 1:37: “For with God, nothing shall be impossible.”
Amen. So it is.
