An Easter Meditation from Turtle Whisperer

“I will rise, like Jesus did, when he rose above the status quo and challenged the religious leaders of his day.

I will rise, like Jesus did, when he rose above the temptations to compromise his integrity.

I will rise, like Jesus did, when he rose above the fears his own followers projected upon him.

I will rise, like Jesus did, when he rose above the betrayal of a friend.

I will rise, like Jesus did, when he rose above his grief and faced his calling.

To the Christian who rises like this, I believe you follow your Christ.

To the Christian who expects death to be the highest form of resurrection, I beg you to consider rising like him in your life, rather than dying like him in your death.

This master teacher deserves our attention and emulation in creativity, civility, courage and leadership. 

Rise, today… in deed. 

Indeed, the rest is entirely out of our hands and surpasses our understanding.

Aho!”

Homospiritual Meditation of the Week – Week of March 24, 2013

A Meditation for your week…

“How we balance our ability to create with our ability to surrender is the direct manifestation of being like a Creator. The existence of one cannot be proven without a doubt or denied entirely so either way, it is up to us to live out what we would believe a Creator would do, if one exists. I say, if I were a Creator, I would have a rush of power, knowing that I can control so much within me and yet a resolve of surrender, knowing that, as a fair Creator, I ought not control all that is around me. In our efforts to know this balance, our inner goddess and god comes to life. That is Divine and that, my friends, is where the bad-assery truly begins. These are my words.”
