For your consideration…..

Moving through life we come into contact with all kinds of things both physical and nonphysical. Everyday this happens to us. It is meant to be. Some of these things are meant for us to keep and some are not.

That is what today’s message is about. Some things we are just meant to “shake off.” While we are meant to notice them, we are not meant to keep them. For example, we go to work today and our coworker or customer is angry or depressed. We are compassionate. Of course we notice and offer support and help. It is meant to be. However, it is not meant to be that we take on their anger or depression. We are not meant to absorb it. More angry and depressed people are not viable solutions. Misery may love company but it does not serve anyone well.

Our message today reminds us to keep an open mind and soul but be on guard. Clean and sort what you allow to enter and live there. If it is not of love, HOPE and joy, shake it off.

That is the HOPE. And so it is.

Bit by bit, piece by piece, HOPE by HOPE action steps anyone can take….

-Meditate/pray…ask…”What is my next step for my highest good and the highest good of all?”

-Drink lots of water.

-Get outdoors and take in at least 10 deep breaths. Remember they don’t all have to be at once.

-And remember, your breath is your reset button. Whenever you feel a wave of exhaustion, anger, fear, trepidation etc., take some deep breaths. Breath in  the new and breath out the negative that no longer serves you.

Love, Blessings and Gratitude,

Rev. Chris
