I huddled late in a heap of bright golden flannel sheets and one of my favorite quilts, glad – I will admit – for the lack of crispy white stuff in the garden.
The paintings surrounding the room seemed to know I needed a blog post for they were whispering inspiration, as they are known to do.
A bit of this. A line of that. A scrap of something else, until I realized that my consciousness was busy quilting.
The voice of Anne Lamott, assuring her Sunday School kids (and the rest of us, I suspect!) that they are chosen, safe, and loved.
And from Shiloh Sophia McCloud… There are places between places where the true mind and the true heart connect. This is the only place from which to make choices.
My favorite from my Farm Gramma, Elsie: Doesn’t that just wonder you?
Don’t forget that “No” is a really, really complete sentence. – Dita Manelli
The skill of intuitive listening is powerful because in truth you are accessing your divine intelligence channel. – Julie Steelman
A problem cannot be solved by the same level of consciousness that created it. – Albert Einstein
Run my dear from anyone and anything that does not strengthen your precious budding wings. – Hafiz
The words of the prophet, H. Stephen Glenn, which you’ve heard from me before… “If a teenaged child has 5 adults who will listen to them, take them seriously, and not shame or blame them for their questions, that child is practically immune from ever committing suicide.”
And, from Sam Bennett, a fabulous quote that begins… I CAN DO IT. I WILL DO IT. WITH INFINITE COMPASSION FOR MYSELF AND OTHERS… and ends a while later with… I AGREE TO GRACIOUSLY ACCEPT SUCCESS, LOVE, HEALTH, PROSPERITY AND OVERALL WELL BEING FOR THE GREATER GOOD OF ALL CONCERNED.
Then, some slightly dusty words of mine… Many things are true. They don’t always get along so well. I’m OK with that. Complexity is what there is. This is true. Trying to hate it all away will never work. You may say that I’m a dreamer. This is true. A dreamer, dreaming still. This is also true.
And, with thanks to Dr. Kayleen Asbo, the one that is changing my world with words of Yeshua/Jesus, from the extra-canonical Gospel of Thomas: And if you make… an image in the place of an image, then you will enter the Kingdom!
I can’t wait to find out what your consciousness makes!
