Message 3: This World is a Miracle

The world is a miracle that we enhance with every thought, word, and action.  

The world is a miracle of Love and life. We have been given the gift of the Earth for our use, but it ultimately doesn’t belong to us. It belongs to the Creator, as well as those who will come after us.

Through living in the world, we come to know beauty and connect more deeply to Spirit: the beauty of the sunset over the mountains, the joy of seeing a young eagle take its first flight, the grandeur of vast canyons and soaring mountain ranges, and the quiet elegance of a rose petal.

Spirit wants us to enjoy the symphonies of nature too: the spring call of the meadowlark...the lyrical notes of a mountain stream tumbling over a waterfall...the whoosh of the wind whipping through the pines...the sound of the surf crashing on a rocky shore.

Giving thanks for a sunset tells Spirit that you love and appreciate these gifts. You don't need to be in church or temple to thank God for the gifts around you. Religious gatherings can give you amazing feelings of the presence of Spirit, but so too does directly communicating with Spirit on the spot, when the thought/feeling strikes you. Be in gratitude, live it as much as possible so that the Creator knows you love and appreciate His creation.

"Walk as if you are kissing the Earth with your feet."
