Sometimes when I am working through something I like to ask God for help then pull a book off the shelf flipping it open at random. It’s amazing how many times the passage I land on speaks directly to my heart and what’s on my mind. Just one of the many ways Spirit can communicate with us.
Here is a recent gem that I have returned to many times since opening to it in “Walden”…..
“Be it life or death, we crave only reality. If we are really dying, let us hear the rattle in our throats and feel cold in the extremities; if we are alive, let us go about our business.
Time is but the stream I go a-fishing in. I drink at it; but while I drink I see the sandy bottom and detect how shallow it is. Its thin current slides away, but eternity remains. I would drink deeper; fish in the sky, whose bottom is pebbly with stars.”
The take home for me…. “Do it now” do not wait to follow your heart… life is short. Make the most of your time here. Make time to connect with the things of an eternal nature…. the things that will last even after the thin current has slid away. Why wait any longer at an opportunity to strengthen your connection with the Divine?
