Inspiration from the founders of UBM
Now and Then
Rev. Dr. Jeni Prigmore
When the “now” becomes the “then”
I’ll think of this day yet again
And recognize in hindsight, it’s a “gift”
Reminding myself to feel the “lift”
Of God’s eternal “presence”
Through whatever comes my way
My heart will flutter, but not sway
From knowing all the good that’s given
To transform my “Hell” to “Heaven”
It’s Good’s “forever essence”.
in your own heart the special significance of this day…
TOMORROW we grow!
Each day becomes brighter, more full of promise.
May you breathe in each moment and
know the FULLNESS of JOY in your life,
in each of your days.
Look at those numbers… They can translate to Spiritual Responsibility, I’ve been told. Do you relate with that interpretation ? It’s Veterans’ Day (thanks to all who have served our country in that way). It’s also the day of each year when the Brahma Kumaris (World Spiritual University – based in India) celebrate the festival of Lights. In years past, Rick and I have lighted candles in each room in our home for at least an hour – moving from room to room; speaking the names of those we hold dear and implicit in that spoken name is the blessing and prayer that all will be given in perfection to that dear person. The Angels of Light NEVER make a mistake – no matter what words may spring to our hearts regarding those persons, the amazing blessings flow to and all around them. So, to you – those we know and cherish by name, and those whom we have yet to meet – know that we hold you in Heart Light as the day progresses. Be well – be in Light – be the BEST YOU possible, and know that you are loved.
Anybody know about laying open check book and open wallet out in the light of the Full Moon and stepping around it 3 times with the intention of bringing financial abundance ? I was introduced to this many years ago…
Since then my rhyming gene has kicked and and each Full Moon I find myself chanting: “Mother Moon, smile on me – fill my life abundantly.” Abundance of Creativity, Abundance of Compassion, Abundance of Money-type wealth, Abundance of Understanding, Abundance of Wisdom, Abundance of Good Health, Abundance of Friendships, Abundance of Love….. What’s YOUR LIST ? I’ll be looking at the Full Moon again in the morning and thinking of each of you.
PEACE and JOY as you walk your Path, Dear Ones, Jení
The soft light of evening
Graces the close of the day -
Touching each of my senses,
It finds its own way
To strum vibrant
Chords in my heart.
The gentlest of breezes
Is stirring the leaves.
The birds evening chorus
Has my Soul on her knees. . .
Expressing her Art.
INSPIRATION IS EVERYWHERE -
Are you Mindful of what’s around you as you walk through your days ?
We are constantly re-minded of the goodness of doing just that (or BEing just that).
Two nice examples came just today:
At our doctor’s office there are posters in each treatment room and the waiting areas.
The one we noticed today (wish I could have sent the beautiful picture with it) was:
“Cherish your dreams and aspirations. They are the children of your soul,
the blueprints of your ultimate achievements”.
This evening, we were checking into the TV station that originates here in our village to
see about tomorrow’s weather, and here was The Thought for Today “A man with a dreamis much more valuable than a man who knows all the facts”.
Just love sharing inspirations with you. That’s it for now… See y’all next Friday.
Until then, may your dreams and aspirations bring you face to face with the JOY
THAT CAN BE YOUR LIFE ! Live it with Gratitude.
This early morning, as I made my walk up the street in darkness;
I reached to the sky for inspiration – as I often do.
There it was for me – Today’s Lesson !
To my uplifted eyes, the “Gift of Life” appeared.
In the shallow bowl of a bright, white sliver of moon, rested the whole, full, mysterious, yet GLORIOUS outline of MOON.
I can see my own Life (and that of My Beloved Husband) – the WHOLE of it – in treasured memories, resting in the bright palm of our conscious recognition THIS DAY, in our own personal evolution.
What a GIFT !
It’s time now to prepare for sleep.
Tomorrow is a very special day for meditation and observation.
Autumn Equinox marks that time for BALANCE -
when day and night are of equal length.
A time to go within in appreciation,
and seeking guidance for the Wisdom of a Balanced Life.
I’ll be in my chair by the window as the light comes into the sky – care to join me ?
Lovingly I bid you Good Night,
