Most of us Americans drink our morning cup of Java for energy enough to jolt us into feeling, "alive, alert, awake and enthusiastic," to quote an old Unity teacher of mine. I don't know why we rely on that as we are reminded over & over again that Jesus came that we might have, not just life, but abundant life. He even talks about the Streams of Living Waters of the life force within us. Or, in the words of Obi-wan Kenobe (wow, even my spell check knows him), the force is in us and all around us! All we have to do is to be aware of it, honor it, and call it forth. Sounds easier and a lot less than most coffee shops charge nowadays!
Isn't it funny how we (I'm preaching to my own choir here) seem to feel more secure relying on outer means as our source of life, when we have it all within us? This Sunday, let's explore our inner life force and eliminate all those toxic, life draining beliefs that keep us locked into our reliance on those outer means of renewing our vitality. Oh, and don't worry, I won't ask you to give up your morning coffee . . . after all we still can enjoy it just for the flavor and the fun! It's all about evolving, not perfection!
