Once Upon a Time

Once upon a time there was a tiny speck of light. This speck of light was formed as a part of a whole. This whole was a wondrous Source of energy, of light and love. Which gave a part of Itself so that the speck of light could come into being.

Born of the Source, yet able to stand alone. Always part of the Source, yet able to return with lessons learned in a life on its own. An individual life with choices and decisions. Freedom to explore. Freedom to grow. Freedom to experience things otherwise unattainable.

As this tiny speck of light gathered these experiences, a watchful eye kept a loving embrace around it. Grateful for the courage and ability of this ’piece of the whole’ to go forth and gather life experiences. From which others could learn.

The once upon a time is now. The story is your story. The life lived is your life. A firefly dancing on a summer’s eve. A star twinkling in the heavens. A spark shooting off from a flame. One candle among many, lighting up a darkened room. All of these images could describe you. For first and foremost, you are light. Created in love. Connected to love. Co-creator of love. Every moment of your existence.

You are not only connected to the Source. You are a part of the Source. The light that shines within you, the light that is you, IS the Source. You are co-creator with the Source. You are co-creating as you discover your path, your part in the growth of the All.

For the All is ever changing, ever growing because of you. Because of your experiences here upon this plane. Because you were willing and eager to seek out your own potential, to love and to grow.

Do you understand who you really are? From where you have come? Of what you are truly capable? There is not a Thee and a Me. There is only an Us.

And We are constantly growing, evolving, changing because of you.

You are Light.
You are Love.
You are One.
You are Ever-changing.

      Thank you. I wondered how this post would be received. To realize that a part of God, the All, the Source, not only lives within us but is not static, Instead, ever growing, ever changing because of our life experiences. I really appreciate your comment.

      Judith, I am so glad these posts touch you as they do. They definitely come from the heart. And thank you for re-blogging it. I’m in the process of compiling the first 52 posts for an ebook. [it wasn’t MY idea ;-)] Blessings to you.
