Have you ever felt like there is something greater than yourself?
Have you ever wondered how things come into being?
How the world moves beyond your grasp and, at times, whether you have power to control it?
If you’re like the rest of us there are moments when you reach out and try to control the uncontrollable.
But have you ever wondered what your life would be like if you stopped trying to control it and put trust in the greater force that guides you, moves through you, and talks to you often, even if you aren’t listening?
Stop and ponder these questions for a minute.
How does spirit move through you?
Spirit exists in all things. You can see the magnificence in a sunset or in an epic wave. You see it in the sight of far off distance lands, while witnessing the birth of a baby, or in the light of soul gleaming from your beloved’s eyes.
Spirit moves throughout all of nature and creates without our permission. It is the unseen mover. The force greater than us all.
If you stop and open your eyes and your heart you can bare witness to the wonder of spirit in everything. Spirit is all around you.
