Love Everlasting


Where there is great love, there are always miracles.
- Willa Cather


When I am open to fully experiencing the pure love of God - as I am now - I receive an infusion of strength.  The power of divine love allows me to accomplish what I may have felt I could not accomplish only a few moments ago.

Because God's presence is everywhere, I can never be separated from everlasting love or denied the soul-enriching experience of loving God.  Divine, pure love is instilled in my heart and cannot be lost or misplaced.

Like a tender sapling stretching to become a mighty oak tree, my love for God continues to grow.  Supported by God's love, I can rise above any challenge.

I cannot help but celebrate God's presence as I live a life inspired by the pure joy of being loved and being loving.


I am loved and loving.

COLOR OF FRIENDSHIP

Once upon a time the colors of the world started to quarrel. All claimed that they were the best. The most important. The most useful. The favorite.

Green said:"Clearly I am the most important. I am the sign of life and of hope. I was chosen for grass, trees and leaves. Without me, all animals would die. Look over the countryside and you will see that I am in the majority."

Blue interrupted:"You only think about the earth, but consider the sky and the sea. It is the water that is the basis of life and drawn up by the clouds from the deep sea. The sky gives space and peace and serenity. Without my peace, you would all be nothing."

Yellow chuckled:"You are all so serious. I bring laughter, gaiety and warmth into the world. The sun is yellow, the moon is yellow, the stars are yellow. Every time you look at a sunflower, the whole world starts to smile. Without me there would be no fun."

Orange started next to blow her trumpet:"I am the color of health and strength. I may be scarce, but I am precious, for I serve the needs of human life. I carry the most important vitamins. Think of carrots, pumpkins, oranges, mangoes and papayas. I don't hang around all the time, but when I fill the sky at sunrise or sunset, my beauty is so striking that no one gives another thought to any of you."

Red could stand it no longer. He shouted out:"I am the ruler of all of you. I am blood - life's blood! I am the color of danger and of bravery. I am willing to fight for a cause. I bring fire into the blood. Without me, the earth would be as empty as the moon. I am the color of passion and of love, the red rose, the poinsettia and the poppy."

Purple rose up to his full height. He was very tall and spoke with great pomp: "I am the color of royalty and power. Kings, chiefs and bishops have always chosen me, for I am the sign of authority and wisdom. People do not question me! They listen and obey."

Finally Indigo spoke, much more quietly than all the others, but with just as much determination:"Think of me. I am the color of silence. You hardly notice me, but without me you all become superficial. I represent thought and reflection, twilight and deep water. You need me for balance and contrast, for prayer and inner peace."

And so the colors went on boasting, each convinced of his or her own superiority. Their quarreling became louder and louder. Suddenly there was a startling flash of bright lightening. Thunder rolled and boomed. Rain started to pour down relentlessly. The colors crouched down in fear, drawing close to one another for comfort.

In the midst of the clamor, rain began to speak:"You foolish colors, fighting amongst yourselves, each trying to dominate the rest. Don't you know that you were each made for a special purpose, uinque and different? Join hands with one another and come to me."

Doing as they were told, the colors united and joined hands.

The rain continued:"From now on, when it rains, each of you will stretch across the sky in a great bow of color as a reminder that you can all live in peace. The Rainbow is a sign of hope for tomorrow."

And so, whenever a good rain washes the world, and a Rainbow appears in the sky, let us remember to appreciate one another.

A Winner!


Winners take chances.  Like everyone else, they fear failing, 
but they refuse to let fear control them.
- Nancy Simms


Life would be easier if every situation had clearly defined rules, or if I knew in advance the results of my actions and where I stood in relation to everyone and everything.  I would feel like a winner then, for I would know that by following the rules, my success was guaranteed.
In reality, few things in life are so simple, and I often have to make choices with which not everyone will agree.  This is why it is important for me to look to God for direction.  When I follow God's guidance, I will be a winner!

God leads me down paths that help me become more aware of my own spirituality.  Then, I am more aware of God's presence; and this, above all else, is what truly makes me a winner!


I am a winner!

CONQUERING DOUBT AND FEAR



At times, you may just give up and drown out your sorrow,
forgetting your goal to build a better tomorrow.
What causes you to throw your arms up the air,
and fall into misery or feelings of despair?
What can you do to conquer your doubt and fear?

Well, first take stock and look right in the mirror.
This will show the truth of what you're searching for,
a giant step to change your life forever more.

Conquering doubt and fear is not an easy task,
there are many, many questions you may want to ask.
And positive curiosity is healthy, plus good,
it sparks a keen interest, as it really should.

Conquering doubt and fear takes tremendous strength,
but it's well worth your effort by any arms length.
For courage is not gained in a day or night,
it builds very slowly through greater insight.

So often you forget the important part of self,
losing your identity is usually what is felt.
Becoming so entwined with the opinion of another,
and so afraid to speak, you just hide for cover.

To conquer doubt and fear, know your "self" well,
listen to your heart; your body's but a shell.
Wisdom and truth are gifts with which you're blessed,
honesty is a virtue that needs to be addressed.

For if you can't be true to the integrity of your soul,
conquering doubt and fear is something you won't know.
So move from the shadows and step within the light,
cast your doubt and fear in the darkness of the night.

Feel your pain or sorrow turn into joyful love,
turn away from doubting; just trust in greater love.
And the spirit of your soul will smile in peaceful calm,
'cause conquering doubt and fear, is a healing balm.

Sai Darshan II, Part 1 - Message 12




Sai Darshan II, Part 1 - Message 12


Most desire
 
God's grace
To earn worldly gains.
Such joys
That you ask of Me
Are transitory
And soon turn
To tears and misery.
But I grant those
To you too
For I know
That one day
You too shall realize
The folly of asking
The untrue gifts
And turn to ask Me
The permanent gift
That is eternal and ever true...
The gift
Of My love for you
And the Grace
Of your constant awareness
Of it.
Ask Me
And I shall give it to you
This very moment!

Sai Darshan II, Part 2 - Message 25



Sai Darshan II, Part 2 - Message 25


He has given you
The free will
To be stubborn...
If you wish
For God to take the way
That you have paved for Him
That, My child, will not happen
When the ego subsides
He Himself will come
To take from you the spade
And show you
The true way...



(Extract from : Sai Darshan II written by Seema M Dewan)

Sai Darshan II, Part 2 - Message 24


God has given this assurance
To every soul,
"Whoever shall remember Me
From the depth
Of their heart
Those I shall always save
I shall do
What is best for them
That very moment
And I shall give them the faith
To realize it."


(Extract from : Sai Darshan II written by Seema M Dewan)

O LORD, TAKE MY LOVE

O Lord, take my love, and let it flow in fullness of devotion to Thee;
O Lord, take my hands, and let them work incessantly for Thee;
O Lord, take my soul, and let it be merged in One with Thee;
O Lord, take my mind and thoughts, and let them be in tune with Thee;
O Lord, take my everything, and let me be an instrument to work for Thee.
