Clouds and Other Views

sunandhandAs I sat outside in the beautiful weather looking at the clouds, I imagined that I was floating on one of them.  Of course I chose the biggest and softest one, one that looked friendly as I had a choice between the different shapes and colors.  While floating on my cloud I began to imagine what I looked like from that viewpoint.  I have some point of reference since I always choose a window seat when flying and I love to look down at the ground below.  Therefore, I know that from up there on top of that cloud I am only a speck if that.  It puts it all into perspective, doesn’t it?  We think that this human existence we are living is so huge, that these bodies we inhabit are so important.  We bathe them, pick just the right clothes to put on them, protect them from the environment as best we can, and do our best to take care of them, which we should.  But, in the grand scheme of things, our bodies are only a miniscule speck in the world.  What is huge is our spirit which resides inside the body.  It doesn’t mean we are to ignore the body or the environment, though.  Joseph LoBrutto III in the book Is There More To Life Than What We Know channeled a guide who said, “Humans must open their eyes!  They will take care of possessions they own, but when it is not theirs to own, they lose respect for it. … planet Earth is your home.  You must treat the whole planet as you would your home.”

The respect we show in taking care of our bodies and our environment is important for survival but how much respect are we showing for our spirit?  Do you look at that part of yourself like you sometimes do the environment – “oh, somebody else will take care of that.  Somebody else will pick up the litter from the ground.  Somebody else will make sure the water is clean and the food is pure and not full of poison when it gets to my table.”  When it comes to the spirit, there is no one else who will feed it, protect it, clean the litter from it!  That is something we each have to do for ourselves.  I choose to bathe mine in love daily, to cherish it, to protect it from the negative energy that is so prevalent in the world today and to always, always show respect and gratitude for the knowledge of who I really am.  I love you!  Namaste

  1. I do work on tending my spirit daily, although sometimes it seems more difficult than others. Especially when real-life stuff comes flying in. But I always know the answer to my frenzy–meditate. That cleanses and restores me!

  2. I loved the way pondering on a cloud took you to such incredible depths and your beautiful words to live by:

    I choose to bathe mine in love daily, to cherish it, to protect it from the negative energy that is so prevalent in the world today and to always, always show respect and gratitude for the knowledge of who I really am.

    Amen to that. Thank you.

    • Thank you dear Julia! I have always looked at the sky both day and night since I was a child. I can feel that part of my soul that is my higher self in the spirit realm and I always listen for guidance. Thank you for reading and responding. Bless you!

  3. This is such a beautiful reminder. You made such a good point about us expecting others to fulfil us just like how we expect others to clean the litter. The way we treat our bodies is a reflection of how we live our day to day life.. I loved reading your post.
