Feeding the Oceans: A Metaphor for Earth Day
There are 2 oceans on earth: an ocean of Fear, fed by streams of angry fearful thoughts; and an ocean of Love or Acceptance, fed by streams of accepting, forgiving, calming thoughts. In today’s social and political climate, I get exhausted trying to feed the ocean of Love. But I don’t need to keep TRYING. My spirituality is not meant to be a daily exercise of my stubborn will power. I only need to ask for help. I simply need to focus on BEING loving – rather than believing I am required to fill the ocean.
When absolutely frustrated, I finally ask Spirit to help me “see” people and events differently than I have been “seeing” them. This helps me a great deal. I cannot answer, however, the question as to why I don’t ask Spirit more routinely, with more diligence, and listen more acutely for His voice which are always the whispers, not shouts, in my mind.
