God Talks About Tragedy

May 6, 2015

Sheryl: Hey, God.

God: Hey, incredible Me.

S: There’s no need to tell you what’s been going on in my world. [For my readers, on March 20, 2015, my husband and father of four, including our two minor children, died suddenly and unexpectedly while we were on vacation in Florida.]

G: Yeah… (sadly)

S: It seems like a cruel joke, sometimes. It seems like so many things were going right. And then the world seemed just to crumble from underneath our feet.

G: Yeah… (sadly)

S: You didn’t cause this? But you had a hand in it?

G: That’s right. I have a hand in everything. And I’m here to pick up the pieces with you.

S: Thank you.

G: (hug)  Your life is still perfection. It doesn’t feel that way, and no one would trade places with you; but still, it is perfect.

S: It just has the illusion of being a tumultuous, earthquake-shaken roller coaster in the dark?

G: Yeah. (sad laugh) That’s a pretty horrible disguise, isn’t it?


 

I offer my conversation with The Creator of All to you in love and peace. The truth is, each one of us who communicates directly with The Creator can learn different lessons about tragedy and death. Thus is the complexity and enormity of The Creator of All.

I invite you to go to that quiet place and reach out to The Creator to speak about life, death or whatever may be on your mind. Please share with us the message The Creator has for you.

Namaste, Sheryl

Love of Self

Good day, friends. On Facebook, I am a member of a discussion group for the author Anita Moorjani. One of the other members posted this quotation from Charlie Chaplin, and it struck me so profoundly that I had to share it with you:

As I began to love myself I found that anguish and emotional suffering are only warning signs that I was living against my own truth. Today, I know, this is “AUTHENTICITY.”
As I began to love myself I understood how much it can offend somebody if I try to force my desires on this person, even though I knew the time was not right and the person was not ready for it, and even though this person was me. Today I call it “RESPECT.”


As I began to love myself I stopped craving for a different life, and I could see that everything that surrounded me was inviting me to grow. Today I call it “MATURITY.”


As I began to love myself I understood that at any circumstance, I am in the right place at the right time, and everything happens at the exactly right moment. So I could be calm. Today I call it “SELF-CONFIDENCE.”


As I began to love myself I quit stealing my own time, and I stopped designing huge projects for the future. Today, I only do what brings me joy and happiness, things I love to do and that make my heart cheer, and I do them in my own way and in my own rhythm. Today I call it “SIMPLICITY.”


As I began to love myself I freed myself of anything that is no good for my health – food, people, things, situations, and everything that drew me down and away from myself. At first I called this attitude a healthy egoism. Today I know it is “LOVE OF ONESELF.”


As I began to love myself I quit trying to always be right, and ever since I was wrong less of the time. Today I discovered that is “MODESTY.”


As I began to love myself I refused to go on living in the past and worrying about the future. Now, I only live for the moment, where everything is happening. Today I live each day, day by day, and I call it “FULFILLMENT.”


As I began to love myself I recognized that my mind can disturb me and it can make me sick. But as I connected it to my heart, my mind became a valuable ally. Today I call this connection “WISDOM OF THE HEART.”


We no longer need to fear arguments, confrontations or any kind of problems with ourselves or others. Even stars collide, and out of their crashing new worlds are born. Today I know “THAT IS LIFE!”
— Sir Charles Chaplin (1889-1977)
