Man is so made that when anything
— Jean De La Fontaine
Welcome, Inspired Seekers:
What was the last thing that inspired and provoked you? When was that unquenchable fire lit within you? And is it still there?
If we believe that there is a Divine spark within us and that the Sacred Spirit lives within our souls, it makes sense that that spark would be fanned by holiness and encouraged by that greatness within.
Throughout all faith traditions, mystics, prophets and saints shared the presence of Divine energy and sought to align that energy with the gifts and talents they had been given. Why should we be any different?
When our energies are ignited and the flame of purposeful passion lights the way, the way clears. The path becomes more narrow and the landing place more broad. This does not mean that the way will be easy or will not be without obstacles, but it does mean that those milestones will be met with trust and faith.
What is speaking from your soul? What lurks within you that is trying to be released to the world so that it will expand and goodness will be unleashed — even in a small way? Shhh … listen. Spirit is calling. Smile. Enjoy. And act. We will all be better when your gifts are used fully!
