Loving greetings and joyous Easter and Spring Equinox wishes to you and your dear ones. It’s interesting to note that Easter is metaphysically a time of a resurrection in consciousness, and the Spring Equinox is a time of renewal. Both inspire us to review our intentions and reset our course towards that which gladdens our hearts and serves our global family.
As I inwardly prayed for April’s theme to be revealed, St. Francis’s beautiful prayer came into my awareness along with these words: I Am Your Instrument. I invite you to join us each week as together we practice being Spirit’s instruments of blessing in our world.
The topic on April 15, 2018, was Where There Is Injury Let Me Sow Pardon. It is a natural response to seek relief for inner or outer injury, whether it’s our own or that of others. “Pardon,” as used by St. Francis, represents healing and recovery. We aren’t meant to deny or bypass the wounds of injury, but to tenderly hold them in prayer without shame or blame, all the while knowing they have come forth because it’s their time of healing, knowing all the while that we possess the innate capacity to skillfully work them in our spiritual practices.
