As I organize and compile over seven
years of daily Affirmative Thoughts
for eventual book style publication,
I run across unpublished notes that
still reverberate with meaning for me,
still provide viable instruction, as is
the case with the note below.
As the hands and feet and heart of God,
I believe we are the agents of good
or God in the world, we are both the
receivers and generators of this good –
we incubate this good by tending to our
spiritual business – living with love,
compassion, and empathy.
Whether we believe Jesus was the son
of God, or the son of man, it matters
not, what really matters is the message
he so clearly conveyed. This Christmas
season, let us listen with fresh ears and
an open heart. Let us be the living and
breathing incubators of good in the
UPON THIS FERTILE SOIL
Today in simple solitude reflect upon
the gifts you have been given: the life
you lead; those who surround you,
love you, and cherish you – the work
you do; the wonder you create and
share with the world.
Today let go of the hoped for future;
the hoped for outcome and return
instead to your ever present life,
not perfect but manageable, not
exactly the stuff of dreams but worthy
of thoughtful consideration, and do
the good you are meant to do now
upon this fertile soil.
Today know without concern,
the waiting good is forming as you
clearly think; believingly dream;
consciously feel during this very
magnificent day that lies unraveling
around you: so be here, now, present
and engaged – knowing this is the
incubator for the good to follow.
WITH LOVE, G.
