What are your morning rituals? What does the first hour of your day look like?

My morning ritual goes as follows. Make coffee, drink a half liter of water, at which point I open my email, from which I read posts from bloggers who I follow. I enjoy my coffee, reading, prayer and meditation. This process takes about an hour and a half.

How has technology changed your job?

Technology has primarily affected the way I communicate with customers and those that I am providing services for. I have recently started doing delivery services for an app based retailer. This position, as a delivery partner, uses an app for the customer as well as for the delivery partners. This app incorporates location services and communication with the customers and the company.

Perfect Love!

I am endeavoring to examine my fears, as I don’t seem to be afraid of much, but I do have a nagging suspicion that I am not living up to my potential. I am arriving at this conclusion through self-examination and while I am grateful for what I have and do my best to share, I think I’ve fallen into the trap of comparison. Setting the comparison bit aside for now I am sure that fear, the self-centered variety, not the survival instinct type, is the obstacle that is interfering.


How is it then that Perfect Love is able to vanquish my fear? and What is it after all that I am afraid of? I am going to dig into this this a bit and in the act of composition and presenting this, perhaps an answer will emerge. I’ll start with perfect.

As an adjective perfect is described as

  1. Being without flaw or defect
  2. Satisfying all requirements
  3. corresponding to an ideal standard or abstract concept
  4. Faithfully reproducing the original
  5. Legally valid

The definition goes on but I get the point as something to aim for but not necessarily achievable. Onward

Perfect as a verb

  1. to bring to final form
  2. to make perfect : improve or refine

Love, well now what have we here, if I am to find or practice Perfect Love in order to be liberated from Fear?

Love as a noun is described described as

  1.  strong affection for another arising out of kinship or personal ties
  2. attraction based on sexual desire affection and tenderness felt by lovers
  3. affection based on admiration, benevolence, or common interests
  4. an assurance of affection

Okay right I get that and am sure I’ve also sought that and, tried as best as I could to express (l)ove

I like Anthony de Mello’s definition

Clarity of perception and accuracy in response

Now what do I know of Love? Not much when it has come from humans, other than my mom and other family. However I have the experience of God knowing my heart and loving me precisely as I am. That is the way I strive to love others. I am utterly incapable of this without His love transforming my entire being.

Now back to the Perfection of Love alleviating fear. In order for me to be fearful I am dwelling in another realm, the future. Fear is obliterated in His presence. If I am remorseful or plagued with regret I am focused on the past, another realm I visit. I am blemish free in The Father’s view as I abide in The ultimate Act of Love for Creation.

It is Finished

I have a mission, that being, to examine myself honestly, which is tricky because self/ego wants me to die, or so it seems at times. I should also, as I catalogue my findings admit them and dwell in His grace, becoming willing to be transformed and to enlist His aide as I cooperate with Him by shifting my focus from, my pain and frailty, toward others, knowing well that He Loves them.

Don’t turn away!

As uncomfortable as it is, to truly see, absorb, and integrate the implications.

Unlike any other year, I have been doing just that. As much as my natural inclinations tend to compel me to look away, I am facing it. I only know what is written about it. Those writings can’t possibly convey what it was really like to be a witness. I am incorporating this into my contemplation about it. Imagining being there. Taking part in it, as much as it’s possible in my mind.

Something is very different this year. There seem to be parallels and analogies, in the events of the day, everywhere I turn. We’re on the verge of something, I sense it.

So this year I am turning toward it, leaning into it, capturing the very essence of it, as much as is humanly possible, and in so doing, my ability to celebrate literally everything is possible.

That which we deny, or fight we give power. Don’t be that guy/girl, what have you.

Happy Easter

The Cross

Is it really so?

I heard it said that these are dark days for our nation. I wondered, according to who? why am I to agree? I do have free will and a choice, do I not? That is my decision, to embrace what is, and to choose to see it as my opportunity to infect my sphere of influence with the Love that has been so graciously been bestowed upon me.

I am choosing to behold, observe and revere the mystery of the nature of things. In carrying on with the experience that if I am aware and honest, pausing to reflect upon the magnificence and miracle of living, I can experience the “Light infused darkness” that accompanies acceptance of uncertainty. I don’t know and don’t need to. Growth doesn’t occur in my comfort zone. Celebrate life and give thanks for the chance to make this a better place.

Bring it!

One way!

I am going to attempt to share an attitude emerging into my consciousness. As with almost all attempted descriptions regarding the spiritual, words are spectacularly insufficient. I am in fact quite comfortable delving into the obscure. The impetus of this new attitude is a realization that, the degree of intensity with which I desire things to go my way, there is in direct proportion, the real result that these things evade my grasp. I’d like to just be able to attend to my simple existence in peace without interference, from the behavior of others wanting the same thing for themselves, going about it in the way they view as best, from their perspective. I could of course, go off and seclude myself from all contact with all humans. I have become a little bit of a hermit, with the unexpected “blessing” of the response to the “pandemic”. Striving as Paul related to “apprehend that for which he had been apprehended of Jesus Christ.” So as I have read and is becoming abundantly clear, “all is well”, so long as I “dwell” and “abide” He’s got this, so “Bring It”.
