For everything there is a season, and a time for every matter under heaven: a time to be born, and a time to die;
a time to plant, and a time to pluck up what is planted; a time to kill, and a time to heal;
a time to break down, and a time to build up; a time to weep, and a time to
laugh; a time to mourn, and a time to dance;
a time to cast away stones, and a time to gather stones together;
a time to embrace, and a time to refrain from embracing; a time to seek, and a time to lose;
a time to keep, and a time to cast away; a time to rend, and a time to sew;
a time to keep silence, and a time to speak; a time to love, and a time to hate;
a time for war, and a time for peace. What gain has the worker from his toil?
I have seen the business that God has given to the sons of men to be busy with.
He has made everything beautiful in its time; also he has put eternity into man's mind, yet so that he cannot find out what God has done from the beginning to the end. 
I know that there is nothing better for them than to be happy and enjoy themselves as long as they live;  also that it is God's gift to man that every one should eat and drink and take pleasure in all his toil.
Meta-Musing ~ Loving, Listening, Letting Go

 Is Peace a Possibility


Each year, I participate in a White Stone Service. You may have watched the one I posted on YouTube. In the course of the service, each participant receives from Spirit/God a "word" of guidance and direction, or encouragement or affirmation. This year my word was "Let Go." A sub-thought that I received was "sit back and let the magic happen."
I do not excel at letting go. I am working on it though. When I first received the message and faithfully wrote it on the stone, I was certain that it was pertaining to letting go of my 22 year old granddaughter, who has been in my care for the past 13 years. "Time for that little birdie to leave the nest!" I thought. And so it is, although as I said, letting go is not my long suit. I am working on it though.
Yet as the year continues to unfold,  I am finding that the message goes far beyond that one instance of letting go. I began to have the urge to clean out the book cases; to release some of the hundreds of books I have zealously held on to for years. Many had been carted cross country...several times! I have found that I now look at them and have to ask myself seriously if I am really going to read that book again...or in some cases...EVER!
Next came the basement, cupboards, drawers, file cabinets, etc. as I searched for things to let go.
Now, it is important to note here that I did not say to myself, "Hmmm...God says I need to 'let go.' What could that mean?" It was more like something inside of me was saying, "let go, let go!"  I am finding that the words I received are clearly Divine Guidance as I ponder in my heart and soul...what matters most.
The greatest letting go that I am experiencing this year, is following the guidance of my soul to release the church space where we have been meeting for almost 8 years. I have had to accept that my vision of ministry has changed. Well, it has not so much changed as blossomed. My desire to reach out to the Universe with the message that changed my life began to express last May with the YouTube messages I post. As the brochure I developed and printed back in 2005 stated, Spirit of Unity IS a "Church Without Walls."
 The White Stone process is not magical. It is mystical and metaphysical. My love of God, and sincere desire to fulfill God's plan for my life draws me to prayer and meditation; to listening to that which is greater than that which is in the world. The loving and listening clear the path to receiving and understanding God's will for my life. This year...that is "let go."
Most of my difficulty in letting go stems from emotional attachments which can stand in the way of my highest good, as well as the highest good of that which I love. I would venture to say that I am not alone in this. So, maybe there is something that you need to let go of?
In Unity we teach that God hates a void, and will fill any space you create with good IF you will create a space to receive. Knowing this to be I open my hand and heart to let go, I anticipate the good that opening my hand and heart prepares me to receive! I AM sitting back and waiting for the "magic" to happen.
Care to join me?

One last...but important note...
