Finding your Beloved

Spirituality is really a journey towards finding your Beloved!!

Love can’t be bought!

This is a self evident truth for most of us. Yet, so often we try and figure out the price for someone’s love.

Need satisfaction can be bought.

It in fact will often go to the highest bidder.

However, love does not respond to being purchased. When love is exchanged for transaction, something in my heart  in fact rebels and rises with hate towards the offer. It is fundamentally wrong – it breaks the beauty of this treasure called love.

If I can’t push someone into love, nor scare them into love, then if I genuinely want to help a friend find the joy of spirituality fulfilled, I must be a friend long enough and know them well enough, to myself love them too! I can then join them in the intriguing journey of meeting the one their hidden desires long for, the one who appears in their dreams, the one who whispers their name in the night, the one who captivates their imagination and accelerates all their senses, the one who invites them into a unique adventure – the fulfillment of life.

This is the mystery of love! This is the crazy journey of walking together down a path of exploring our inter-connected spirituality.

Spirituality sparkles when love is at the core!

Spirit’s call

The Spirit of God moves soundlessly over the verdant mountainside. The breath of God quickens life as it sweeps over tamarack and cedar. It stirs awareness as it brushes by deer and elk and then descends over the city of man.

This city lies securely between the hills, sleepy in its distracted pursuit of life and toil.  Anguish roils the breast of so many. Brutality lurks under the thin veneer of nicety that is ubiquitous in the Canadian heart. These two victims play off each other as the enemy steals life away from small victims and shattered hearts.

There in the darkness, buried deep within aching hearts, lays a treasure sought by the Spirit of healing and love. The Spirit’s call is much more urgent in the city of men. There is a yearning deep in the heart of this lover for the whispered exclamation of discovery from the heart of a torn beauty. The Spirit seeks a voice; not rocks and cedar but something warm blooded and gentle; not the deer in the valley but you and I.

We are the Beloved one’s found ones. We carry His heart’s desire for the wounded. The Spirit prompts and stirs. Surely someone will yield their heart and voice to this crowning moment?

Life expectantly searches you and I, seeking a voice to call forth possibility; a voice to give body to the passion of the Spirit’s call for life- a voice of Life to breathe Hope to the broken and release the prisoner.

We the bride, stir a little wondering – Did I just sense something?? What unusual feeling just tantalized my busy life?

Now is the time.

Will I arise and plunge into this moment? Will I step into the adventure of racing with Life to open possibilities with the one I love? Sweetness that shocks our senses comes when we run together with our Beloved.
