One song that is what the word universe actually means. Uni = one, and verse = song. One Song. I was reading the bible: James 1:17 and a sentence came into my spirit, “all the lights in the heavens.” I got a sudden glimpse, as if I were actually in the heavens amidst all these lights, and it was glorious. It was very fleeting, I couldn’t get back there once it had gone, and if I wasn’t writing this down right now, shortly after it happened, I am not sure I would believe it had happened.
It felt immense. An enormous space filled with bright lights. It felt like a living space; where spirits lived and dwelled brilliantly shining their lights. I will never do it justice with words because it was in the realm of spirit. Then, my Life Warrior friends, life happened, and when life happens in the middle of being in the spirit world, it can put us off track a bit.
I had a strong urge to write, so I put my Nook (where I store my books) down, and started writing. Then the phone rang. My hubby had taken the car to the garage for maintenance, early and was calling me. I picked up the phone, but I didn’t really want to talk, because I still felt close to the spirit world and didn’t want to contaminate the experience with real life. So I was abrupt. Not mean, simply abrupt and my replies were stilted. “Yes.” “Hi.” “I’m writing!” “Bye.” I didn’t feel good about my lack of love to the one person in the whole world whom I love the most—my soul Life Warrior mate.
As soon as I had written down what I needed to write about my experience, I called him back. “Hi, sorry I was a bit abrupt before. I was in the middle of writing.” He understood. He understood before. But now I was telling him that I loved him. He understood.
I believe that sometimes when we get caught up in our spirit world. In “all the lights in the heavens” whether we are meditating, or praying or simply feeling in a place of calm and peace; when we are in that place and things of the earth interrupt us, we have to be very aware of our actions, and our behavior. I have had this happen to me before, I am meditating and feeling all warm and spiritual and happy, and the world interrupts usually in the form of another human being wanting my attention, and I can be harsh. I don’t want to come back to worldly reality. I want to stay in the coziness of heaven and light. So I have to be aware that I am not living in the spiritual realm too much. And if I go there, it is only as a visitor right now. Because right now, my place is on the earth with other human beings and I want to be kind, and sweet to my fellow compatriots.
Today, practice meditating and then coming back into the world with a sense of wanting to communicate in a kind and deliberately sweet way. Close your eyes and go to the place where “all the lights in the heavens” exist, and then come back to your reality and understand that each human being is a light on earth. We are here to shine our own light and to help other people shine theirs. My friend you are doing so well. You are already a Life Warrior—you are exactly where you are meant to be and we all appreciate exactly who you are.
