The Most Important of Things 

Blessed we are to dance on this ground
With the rhythm of saints to carry the sound
We hold a prayer for the Earth
For the ones yet to come
May you walk in beauty
And remember your song

Remember why you came here
Remember your life is sacred

“Blessed We Are” by Peia

With everything taking place on the planet these days, it is apparent that we have unfortunately forgotten the most important of things. 

We have forgotten how precious it is to be alive

We have forgotten how precious it is to be alive. 

We have misplaced our gratitude and replaced it with frustration. We have taken for granted perfectly-timed, slow-growing nourishment from the earth and instead poison ourselves with fast “food.” Many of us have traded real human connection and have fallen for the allure (and insecurities) of fake lives on screens. 

We are disconnected from Source. 

Some hard truths: Your purpose will not be found in a different job. The love you seek will not be found in another person. The wealth you seek will not satiate you as much as you think it will. 

The only thing that will bring you true peace and fulfillment is to connect back to the sacredness of life—the way the ancients did, the way villagers deep in the jungles still do, the way mothers connect with their babies for the first time. 

As an incredibly famous soul once said, “The kingdom of God is within.” Such an epic statement that has had many different interpretations. One way of looking at this is that everything you need is inside of you. Another way could be that we are powerful creators and we get to create our own kingdoms. We are constantly creating our realities with our thoughts, feelings, and perceptions—all things that are within us. You decide the world is a harsh, mean place and the world becomes a harsh mean place. There are now scientific studies that prove this. The Biology of Belief by Dr. Bruce Lipton is a great resource.  

…everything you need is inside of you.

My point is two-fold:  1. We are powerful creators, and need to be mindful of the mental creative constructs we put in our “kingdoms.”  2. If we can remember that we are sacred and stay tuned in to that frequency, then everything else gets created and aligned and reflected with sacredness. And this, this sacredness is what all of life actually is.  When we remember who we are, we know that we are all expressions of the divine, currently in human form. All questions of worthiness fade away, because since we are made of the divine, we are inherently worthy. 

So, all these breaths you are breathing—can you love them more? Can you give thanks for each day, each moment, each smile, each experience? Can you remember how sacred you are and bring that into every single day?
