Love Incarnate

Greetings everyone! I found myself asking my Angels for guidance most of the time last week. The energy in the air was heightened, and it seemed like the world was off its axis. Asking for guidance is difficult for many of us. We are taught to be self-reliant and independent, so asking for help may mean that we have failed.

On the contrary, our loving God, the angels, and our guides are always here waiting for us to ask for guidance. They will not intercede unless we reach out and ask them for help. In Psalm 139, we read,

“You find me on the journey and guide my steps; Even before words rise up in prayer, Lo, You have already heard my heart's call.”

They are always with us, hoping to guide us on our journey. We have experienced many heavy and lonely days over the past year. When we feel isolated and lonely, it isn't easy to reach out. Sometimes we forget how to reach out for help. Since childhood, we were taught that we are sinners and the only way to get to heaven is through the experience of pain that will lead to forgiveness. So, darkness is like an old friend. Jesus is Love Incarnate! He models for us throughout the gospels how to release the pain and hurt to experience freedom. Jesus embodies the love we so desire. When He experienced loneliness, anger, hurt, pain, he turned to God for guidance. His message was always about forgiveness, hope, and love. The message that Jesus wanted us to understand is that “Each of us is love incarnate!” How different our lives would be if our religions taught us that we each embody Christ within us. That each of us is love incarnate, and are all one family without distinction.

If we continue to view our world through the eyes of fear, we will only see hate and destruction. We need to learn how to see with the eyes of love to recognize the pain and hurt in ourselves and others in need of healing. It will evoke compassion within us, and love will flow through our being and create our healing. We are never alone and are always surrounded by love. Reach out this week and talk to your angels guides and loved ones. You will find your heart much lighter. I offer psalm 139 by Nan Merrill as part of your reflection this week.

O my Beloved, You have searched me and known me! You know when I sit down and when I rise up; You discern my innermost thoughts. You find me on the journey and guide my steps; You know my strengths and my weaknesses. Even before words rise up in prayer, Lo, You have already heard my heart call. You encompass me with love where’er I go, and Your strength is my shield. Such sensitivity is too wonderful for me; it is high: boundless gratitude is my soul’s response.

Where could I go from your Spirit? Or how could I flee from Your Presence? If I ascend to heaven, You are there! If I make my bed in darkness, You are there! If I soar on the wings of the morning or dwell in the deepest parts of the sea, Even there your Hand will lead me, and your love will embrace me. If I say, “Let only darkness cover me, and the light around me be night,” Even darkness is not dark to You, and the night dazzles as with the sun; the darkness is as light with You.

You formed my inward being, You knit me together in my mother’s womb. I praise You, for You are to be reverenced and adored. Your mysteries fill me with wonder! More than I know myself do You know me; my essence was not hidden from You, when I was being formed in secret, intricately fashioned from the elements of the Earth. Your eyes beheld my unformed substance; in your records were written every one of them, the days were numbered for me, when as yet there were none of them. How precious to me are your creations, O Blessed One! How vast the sum of them!

Who could count your innumerable gifts and blessings? At all times, You are with me.

O that You would vanquish my fears, Beloved; O that ignorance and suffering would depart from me - My ego separates me from true abandonment, to surrendering myself into your hands! Yet are these not the very thorns that focus my thoughts upon You? I yearn to come to You in love, to learn of your mercy and wisdom!

Search me, O my Beloved, and know my heart! Try me and discern my thoughts! Help me to face the darkness within me; enlighten me, that I might radiate your Love and Light!
