Have you been called?

So many are called now on this earth to hold sacred space, to be channels of light, to see, know and feel the immense beauty, goodness and peace that is the ground and foundation of all being.

So many are needed now to root deeply to the sacred soil of mother earth, to grow into the light and know their belonging on this planet, and to communicate this to others.

If you have been called, you may get started now!

What you focus on grows, my dears. Have you not realized this yet?

Try this experiment in your daily life. Clear your thoughts and think of those things you love, your joyful memories, your most heartfelt plans. Resolve to be happy! See how you feel, see how more thoughts of joy come in. Keep this up. The more joyful you are, the more light you shine. You are worth it! You do not have to feel bad!

Now try an hour of watching the news where people scream and argue, interrupt, where they are rude and unpleasant to each other… Try this, but not for too long, for it breeds fear, worry, doubt and anxiety.

After this pay attention. Do your thoughts spiral downward and attract more negativity? Is this the legacy you wish to leave the web of all creation? For your thoughts and feelings become your creation.

Have you been called to be the light for yourself and others? Focus on that, move toward that, and your clarity will reweave and repair the web of creation. You will help rebuild the dark and weakened fibers of fear and doubt.

Do not underestimate your power to create the world you wish to see before you.

Forest cathedral

Come to the timber with me. Feel the peace and sacred quiet on this snowy winter day. The peace of growing things at rest.

This feels familiar for beneath the surface, beneath all the chatter and worry of the brain, beneath all the attention grabbing anxieties, you too know the peace and sacred silence at your center. It is a gift that all living beings are given.

Come to the timber and reconnect to the divine within you. You do not need stained glass, you do not need incense, you do not need a liturgy, you do not need words read out by another to connect deeply and know your oneness with all that is.

You may love your religious forms and rituals, but you do not require them to connect to the living spirit, the great oneness at the heart of all things.

Visit our forest cathedral, open to the endless sky, with its foundation of our intertwined roots, supporting columns of our straight and true tree trunks, arches of our branches, soaring overhead.

Here you may find sacred space and divine peace.
