Thought for the Week: Carrying the load

Bringing in the harvest is a communal event. Even though our lives seem to be separate and apart from others, they really aren’t. And as we broaden our perspective for inclusivity, we are deepening our awareness of connection with all. Reaching out to others asking and offering help warms the heart and soul. It also helps us physically. Remember using the “buddy system” when there’s heavy lifting involved puts less strain on any one individual. There’s a song I learned a long time ago when I was in Brownie’s. “The more we get together, together, together, the more we get together the happier we’ll be. For your friends are my friends and my friends are your friends. The more we get together the happier we’ll be.” Collaborating with others opens us. Letting go of presumptions helps us move forward.

I realize not all people have the same values in life. Therefore, it’s important to be true to our own values and not be bowled over in the name of inclusion. The energy we carry and bring forth through us to life meets and will draw to us similar energies. Expectancy of good helps adjust our eyesight to seeing and accepting good. Life is an infinite continuum and one that is always saying yes. Consciousness moves energy. Being open and available for the God Presence to operate through us brings freedom. Faith in knowing right and perfect action goes before us settles the mind and opens the heart.

Say with me: “My load is lightened when I trust, ask, and receive care and help from others. The energy of Life moves unrestricted through me, and I am grateful for all those souls I meet on Life’s pathway. May I be blessed and a blessing. And it is so.”

—Rev. Gay Beauregard, Alpine Church of Spiritual Living
