The beautiful and powerful Oprah Winfrey bid goodbye last year to the faithful fans who followed her afternoon production for twenty-five years.
In her last broadcast she talked with the audience about the most important things she had learned from her guests during her show’s tenure.
One of the most significant, she said, was this:
ALL LIFE IS ENERGY. Every rock, every butterfly, every blade of grass…the sky, the clouds, your body, your thoughts, everything you see and feel…is energy.
We are responsible for the energy we create for ourselves.
We are also responsible for the energy that we bring to others.
A very commanding thought.
If…WE are responsible for the energy, then WE are the originators, the creators…with all of the powers inherent in that title.
Dictionary.com says to create means to be the home of.
If WE are the home… then WE are the resting place where peace and nurturing are needed and the launching pad for vitality and action. Quite a responsibility. And privilege.
To do this well certain things seem important.
Seeing the soul view behind appearances
Telling ourselves the truth
Being aware of the consequences of our choices
Trusting in the Divine
Connecting with our Higher Self
Being open to learning our life lessons
Honoring our path and the paths of others
Loving ourselves and others
Feeling gratitude for the gifts of life
Experiencing JOY in the Present Moment.
When our world is filled with the presence of this goodness the energy we create for ourselves and the energy we bring to others will be life enhancing. We will be creating a glorious expansion of our own bliss.
Can we dream for a moment to a future where every person cultivates the most beautiful HOME for his energy?
What would the world look like if we each felt this Glorious State of Grace and sent out this wondrous gift to each other!
