"What lies behind us and what lies before us are tiny matters compared to what lies within us"

This is the year to find your true self
Here we are entering the month of the symbols of love and the Presidents that helped made our world “Great and United”. Oh! I forgot, those were the good old days.  The red states wanted a leader that has come to make us aware of our inner most thoughts and feelings. Unfortunately, in some cases, those turn out to be - to not love thy neighbor, to not be proud of a nation under God, to not unite regardless of race, creed, or color. 

Now, we are forced to awaken to our most hidden closet of thoughts, deeds, and/or words. This can only be healed with unconditional love.  Those hidden thoughts are now visible and makes us aware that we have some strong personal mental house cleaning to do.  After our mental house cleaning, we will be tested to prove we embrace humanity for all with love.  Should we fail, we can just pick ourselves up and begin again. 

The greatest gift you can present to your God  - regardless of your religious beliefs – is that you have learned to love, honor and have partnership with every human soul.  When you achieve this you are developing the spiritual planet God sent you here to help create.  The universe is showering the power, grace, love and wisdom on us this month to help us to make it so.  Humanity everywhere will be grateful for whatever efforts you personally put forth to make this truly a spiritual evolving planet. 

Thank you for your efforts and the blessing of your efforts will empower you forever with the grace of God.   Blessing of love and grace.

Rev. Jay
