“I’m broke” is an ugly phrase. Not only is it ugly, it’s totally inaccurate. I don’t buy it — not about you, not about me, not about anyone or anything in the world. I don’t buy for a second any suggestion of irreparable ruination, or depletion to the point of nothingness. Because what I know is that we are infinitely sourced, perpetually renewed, and automatically regenerative.
No matter what you’ve been through and how shattered you’ve felt — you’re not broke.
No matter what you’ve experienced or witnessed or are currently facing in terms of the world’s challenges — you’re not broke. And neither is the world.
When the Wholeness that we are meets the Wholeness that the world is — that’s when magic starts to happen. That’s when we’re cooking with juice. So let’s get in touch with that Wholeness and Fullness and Richness that we already are. We’ve got nothing to fix, and plenty to share.
I can’t wait to see you this Saturday at Albuquerque Center for Spiritual Living (abqcsl.org) -- service at 6:00 pm, wine & cheer at 5:30 pm. With my beautiful friends, Patty & Sid. XO, Rev. Drew
Albert Einstein said, “Imagination is everything. It’s the preview of life’s coming attractions.”
The power of attraction works both ways. We attract what we are. And that which we allow ourselves to imagine, what we dare to dream and expect, attracts us. We’re pulled forward as we pull. Who, what, and how we’re being right now creates what is to come. At the same time, our anticipation of something coming tends to draw forth who, what, and how we’re being right now.
It’s another chicken and egg scenario — being and becoming, being our becoming, becoming our being…
I’m full of anticipation of seeing you this Saturday evening at Albuquerque Center for Spiritual Living (abqcsl.org). I imagine connection, joy, and empowerment. Our celebration service starts at 6:00. Join us for community & cheer at 5:30. XO, Rev. Drew
I recently learned that the Tilt-a-Whirl, that popular amusement park ride, is known as the “Waltzer” in Europe. I kinda love this distinction. One name emphasizes the discombobulating off-kilter spin of things, while the other sounds like a pretty dance. And of course it’s both. Life is both.
I’ve been feeling the tilt and spin of the earth lately, almost like I could fall right off. So I’ve been trying to practice remembering that wherever we are and no matter how off-kilter everything feels, gravity is always doing its thing. We’re on track. We can’t fall off.
The world turns, life whirls, we go around and around together, and we can — if we choose — approach it all like the most graceful waltz the universe has ever seen.
I can’t wait to see you this Saturday at Albuquerque Center for Spiritual Living (abqcsl.org). Join us for service at 6:00, or beforehand for community & cheer at 5:30. XO, Drew
“And those who were seen dancing were thought to be insane by those who could not hear the music.” — Friedrich Nietzsche
What if everything, absolutely everything, is Spirit speaking to us? And what if this Absolute Everything — whether whispered lovingly into a ticklish ear or shouted with quaking volume and fervor — is in fact a sweet nothing?
What if everything is, in fact, nothing? And it’s always up to us to make it something — according to how we listen, how we receive, how we interpret and make meaning…
