strength-dignity…nautilus teachings

strength
strength

Proverbs 31:25
“She is clothed with strength and dignity,
    and she laughs without fear of the future.”

the morning is
covered in mist
cloaked in dew
from the glistening of
the rising sun
small birds
flit down waters edge
beak open
lapping up small drinks
of ocean
hoping for a tiny fish
to fill their bellies
as they too
greet the new day…
already
encompassed
with  mystery
what new
surprises awaits her?

full of beauty and grace
she loves
witnessing
the birth of a new day.
the veil of imagination
lay across the beach
in still, silent beauty
the first peeks
of light hang over the ocean
like newborn baby stars
as the world
awakens
reflections of
pink water upon the sand
slivers of crimson in the sky…
she gazes downward
catching a glimpse of a
Nautilus
vacant of center…

what does it mean
to be without center?
without heart?
without balance?
without the vibration
of our Faith echoing
off our soul?

how do we find buoyancy
if we have no center?

centered
centered

the center is what pulls us toward
grace, light, love, energy, acceptance…

if we are without center
are we without faith?

what if we have no faith
what is your center then?
is it ego?
self?
food?
alcohol?
drugs?

a life uncentered is off balance…
we must, must, must
trust and believe
there is a greater power
to believe in
to have faith in…
if not
we are merely
drifting aimlessly at sea.
Faith binds us
to the commitment of
acceptance.
in acceptance of our Faith
their is forgiveness
of our sins
in the acceptance and
forgiveness of our sins
is the center-
the eye of God-
our Faith
His promise
to live eternally
with Him.

His promise
His promise

what pulls you away
from your true north?
is the cascading,
the calling ,
the desires
of the external world
greater than your Faith?
have you lost all
resistance to
that which calls you
Home?
is there a magnetic pull
towards
self abuse?
self hatred?
lack of confidence?
unworthiness?

it’s time to reset your life.
push the button!
feel the grace of God’s forgiveness
as the numbers on your
life odometer of sins
fall backward
landing at zero.

God gives us as many
button resets as we need
He loves, accepts and forgives
unconditionally.

we are His child

wrapped in love
wrapped in love

dry your tears
from your eyes
wrap your long arms
around your body
curl your knees
to your chest
as if once more
you are protected
in your mother’s womb…
close your eyes
feel God’s love, warmth
light, grace, energy,
acceptance and forgiveness
wash over your soul-
you are now
cradled in the palm
of God’s hand…
feel the rhythm,
the melodic rocking…
hear the wings
of your sins take flight
never returning
as He washes you
clothing you
in
strength
and dignity…
let the soft silky
robe of love
He gives you
give you the faith
you need
to stand
face to the sun
knowing
you
are
His
beloved.

amen!
amen!
