Let's Take a Divine Ride!Unity Church

At this very moment if you aren’t feeling a soft warm glow of peace and happiness in your heart and mind, then I invite you to take a break from the steady drone of busy-ness and stressy-ness in your life.  With practice, we can recover our inner peace and poise through a gentle intention to experience the ever-present Spirit within.  Or sometimes it helps to take a mental or physical excursion to a place of divine beauty. 

Donna and I chose the physical route last weekend by driving to the coast.  Let me take you back to the highlight of the trip: 

In the glorious sunshine, we’re peddling our bikes down a lonely road, leaving the roaring ocean and the town of Yachats behind for a countryside excursion. Perched in a basket over my back wheel, little Sparky tries to peek around me to keep his nose to the warm breeze. But he soon settles down and relaxes, taking in the lazy views of forest and farmland on either side.  As we ride by, cows lift their heads and stare as if we are the most surprising things they’ve seen in a long while. Butterflies and hummingbirds dart and flutter about. 

If Jesus spoke the truth that “Heaven is within us,” then somehow everything on this perfect bike ride is already a part of you and me. That uplifting feeling of freedom of gliding through the air—our souls must be free and boundless like that. Sparky’s ability to surrender and be carried by a Higher Power (in this case “Dad”)—that must be innate to us too. The cows’ childlike wonder in life’s simple gifts and surprises—that must be just beneath our restless worries and desires.  

So whenever we find ourselves turning red with anger or humiliation or feeling out of step with the dance of life, try thinking of butterflies and hummingbirds and all those creatures that seem to reside in a place of divine beauty. How would they dance through this situation? What miracle allows them to notice the world with wonder rather than judgment, to release the past and move on in peace and optimistic expectation? Whatever it is, that miracle also lives in each of us.

Celebrating our divine unfoldment,

Jon
