For your consideration….

Control is an illusion. We think we are in control or out of control but that is not true.

The reality is that control is often “resistance” that disrupts the natural flow. Only the Divine Plan and Time is real. Sometimes we are in sync with them so we think “according to our plan” is due to our control. At the same time when things do not go “according to our plan” it is due to things being out of our control. We pick and choose the narrative on control.

Our message today is to consider dropping the illusion that we are in control. Consider going with the flow and letting every situation be want it wants to be. Be prepared to be excited and surprised with the gifts that fall into our moments.

That is the HOPE. And so it is.

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

-Affirm…“I am loved.”

-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.

-Relax…go with the flow. Out of control is the true reality.

What made me smile yesterday….

-Spending the afternoon on a boat to see the whale sharks. We saw them but each time we got in the water to snorkel with them, they left.

-Still swimming out in the deep blue Caribbean was fantastic.

-Meeting new people. I thought I was adventurous when I was young but these young people put my adventures to shame.

-I was not prepared to get back after dark and had not taken a flashlight. However, the big bright moon lit my way home.

Love, Blessings and Gratitude,

Rev. Chris
