I Said to God, “I want to do something beautiful for You.” And God Answered…
Just do your part.
Be a seed planter. Do not fool yourself in thinking you create the tree. God alone
creates the tree. And remember, it may not even come to full fruition in your lifetime.
Be clear of your intention.
Put out a clear signal. It is only then that it may be used to serve the greatest good.
Seek to live with equanimity and balance.
It is only in such moments that you are truly yourSelf and I may shine through.
In moments of despair, try to keep an inner smile.
Sit humbly at the feet of your life and be taught.
Become the alchemist and blossom because of – not in spite of.
Discern My illusion.
Complete love sees not just My beauty but also discerns the illusion of My absence in
ignorance, hatred and evil.
Transform them within yourself and you can transform them without.
Make Me visible in the world.
You have been given a body-mind through which to make Me visible in the world.
Care for the body and harness the mind and you’ll dance in the joy of My spirit.
Live in the mystery.
Remember you only have the vantage point and wisdom of this lifetime.
Don’t waste time trying to figure out the big picture or the ‘why’ of things.
Instead, just respond by doing something beautiful for Me.
Rev. Stephanie Rutt, 2010
What greater desire could there be but to do something beautiful for the Holy One who loved us into birth?
