FAITH MONTH: DAY 11: “You were born a child of light’s wonderful secret— you return to the beauty you have always been.” ― Aberjhani

I LOVE this quote! Isn’t that sweet? And so true, as I see it. There is a reading about us being created from the substance of stardust. I love that reading, along with this quote.

I believe in fairy dust and magic and beauty and miracles. Truly believe. And that belief is constantly reinforced when I spend my time looking for those things. If I spend my time watching the news and believing THAT is what life is all about, I become sad and down and discouraged.

So, for many years now, I have chosen to focus on only those things that feed my spirit. Why not? It makes me happy and that is who and what I want to be.

I live in a place where I am only blocks away from what is REALLY named the Elfin Forest. OMG! I loved it when I came here and saw that there are 6 blocks that have THAT sign on the street signs. It is a beautiful place that is full of magic and beauty and completely unique in all the world.

Most of the beautiful place I live in today is beautiful and magical…and it called me here when I did not even know it existed. What a tremendous blessing that is. I have trusted those impulses and quiet urgings for so many years. And they lead me to amazing and wonderful adventures.

I know of at least 10 or 100 miracles every day when I am mindful of them happening. It takes all of my energy to remain in that space and pay attention. I love it!

I don’t know if we “return” to the beauty we have always been, but I DO believe that we REMAIN the beauty that we have always been. I have seen extraordinary and astonishing moments of beauty in the most unexpected places. In the most unexpected of people and under the most unexpected conditions. Light and love and magic and miracles…all of it.

So, I keep myself poised to pay attention and notice them all the time. And there they are! When I look for things to bring me additional evidence of faith, I get it. My job is to pay attention. When I do, I am never disappointed. Never. I just seem to forget, and damned ego tells me it isn’t there. Hahahaha…you can’t fool me…I saw it peeking at me from the corner of my eye. When I turn to focus on it, it is bigger than life.

I AM a child of light’s wonderful secret. And I just want you to know that you are too. And I will teach you all about that if you want to do what I do to be there.
