What’s Different This Holiday?

The light shines within.
The light shines within.

 

Once one realizes one is a spiritual being above all, truly IMAGO DEI, in tune with the Creator, energy of creation, one can both be in the world, but yet not of the world, thus have a clear truth about life, self, one’s path, and also a wonderful peace, tranquility.  One can understand love in a new way, in a wonderful way that was not understood before, so that if there is drama, one doesn’t get caught up, sucked into it.  One can walk away, navigate it without it being toxic.  One yearns to study the poem in Ecclesiastes 3 with greater depth. How does this make this holiday different?

It makes it different because I am not looking to the external for anything, not to an external relationship to be fulfilled, guided etc…, not human one.  I understand that connecting to that which created the universe itself will spark my intuition, understanding, foreknowledge etc…to guide me and I will know when to move forward, when to retreat, turn left, right etc…whom to love and whom to walk away from.  I will honor boundaries for my well being, to be honored, cared for, cared about etc…and do the same for others.  I don’t feel compelled to prove anything in terms of any career moves, or how much I have in the bank because that is not the purpose of being here on earth, of our creation, of being created.  My choices are choices that bring me peace, personal growth, but not through agitation, or pain.  This holiday the light of the Christ, the Kingdom as Yeshua pointed out is within me, something I did not comprehend before, but am starting to comprehend now.  It’s all about connecting to that understanding of IMAGO DEI and the creative energy/force/being that created the universe itself from within and working with that to make positive choices, healthy choices, be pro-active not reactive in life to be happy, joyful, wise etc… and be an example of that to others long term, honoring life as sacred.  My choices now in life, love ect.. are based on this understanding and thus having released that which does not serve my higher and greater good, my greater joy etc…, I can live the premise of IMAGO DEI, connect to the creative energy/force/being  freely, lovingly not in fear and all that but in pure love. 

That is what is different this holiday and will be different from this day forward.

Shalom and Amen

First Happy Holidays to All, whatever you are celebrating during this season, blessed be.  What’s cooking?  I have been really meditating a lot, chilling out and thinking about the direction for my life for the next several years.  I want to have a sense of where I have been, and where I am going based on what I have learned and more.  Where is all that taking me as an artist and in general?

I had an epiphany and it was this.  Most of the poetry/songs I write are with the purpose of inspiring, guiding etc.. and the music I love to listen to, the songs, have a message, something I glean and learn from them.  I realized that even when I taught ESL, I always sought to teach more than that, to always go beyond, to teach about life.  It dawned on me that in a sense my vocation, even through the arts is akin to a life and spiritual coach.  I have decided to pursue certification as a life and spiritual coach in 2015, while focusing on writing spiritually oriented songs/poems to inspire and such, as well as continue to grow in my education in that field over the years.  I hope to find a way to bring synergy to the two, combining the coaching with the arts.   Life is not just about living, but also about learning, so I hope to be a vessel of Hashem to bring both to the world. There’s also a realization for me of my spiritual path, which is that I am not religious, really seek to find or create community, fellowship for those of us who are spiritual, can appreciate the various faith traditions, believe in a Creator, force of Creation, God, but seek spirituality and a deep connection with that Creator.  It’s also dawned on me that many faith institutions focus on family, which is fine, but not everyone is married with kids and grand kids, or if they have kids and grand kids, they may not be in the same state.  You also have those who are divorced, widowed and often we don’t really fit in with the activities etc… offered.  I am hoping to organize spiritual activities that those not in the traditional family mode might fit into.   2015 will be a busy year, and the start of a whole new life.

Shalom and Amen
