FAITH MONTH: DAY 9: “Shine your soul with the same

egoless humility as the rainbow

and no matter where you go

in this world or the next,

love will find you, attend you, and bless you.” ― Aberjhani

This is so beautiful! I love this quote/poem. When I looked up this man, the author, I was so happy to have found his work! This writing thing I do here is an informative process for me. I love that I get to learn, as I spoke about yesterday.

I believe in the synchronistic thread of life. I have always seen that following one thing leads me into a direction that is completely unrelated, but I can and do follow the thread to the next thing, and the next.

I love this way of living. It takes me on journeys most people cannot believe I have.

So, today, I am writing about Faith and there is so much going on in my personal life. It is amazing and very surprising that I am able to sit with that and do this as well.

Faith is what allows me to see that there are threads to follow. I always knew this but did not always have the ability to just let it guide me. That IS what faith is all about. Trusting that the thread is going somewhere I do not yet understand.

My belief that there is nothing bad or negative or evil in this world. There is not. That everything that has ever happened or ever will has a purpose and a meaning that I do not get to see until I can. Then I get these astonishing moments of “AHA!” that take my breath away and leave me smiling on the inside and the outside. I see the beauty and perfection of this world a million times each day, in so many ways that I am amazed at my amazement.

After a while, we get to be validated by these moments. “Of course,” is how I feel internally when these things happen…” Of course.” I somehow knew it in my heart but could not believe it in the brain. My heart always knows and recognizes these truths. My faith lives in my heart, not my head.

Oh yeah! Of course! Duh! And so, my soul is shined some more…again…and there we are! And I love that I have been found again, and attended to again, and blessed again.

This is all there is for me today. And I do not know if I am able to be in egoless humility, but I do know that my soul gets shined each and every day. Shiny soul, it makes the world go ‘round…Yay!
