When I first googled the word “blog” this last April I had never even read a blog, much less written one. I never had any interest in it, but a friend had suggested it might be a good idea for me and I knew I had a natural talent for writing ever since college. Back then, I preferred classes with a 10 page final instead of a test because I new I would get an “A” in that class, without much time investment. I have been writing a journal for over 20 years, so in a certain since, I’ve been preparing for this for a very long time, but I didn’t know I would come to enjoy it so much.
I chose in the beginning to treat it much like an online journal opening myself up about my struggles and triumphs, the average and the extraordinary, but as I came to understand that this is a medium I could share some of what I have gleaned over my lifetime of spiritual discovery and Wisdom then I looked at this more as a journey together where we as fellow writers and seekers could share what we have learned along the way and what we are learning now. In so doing, dreams began to open up for me. I enjoy the aspects of writing. The thrill of sitting at keyboard in the early morn, the still of the night echoing as the keyboard raps to my pitter-pat-tap-tap and I am in Awe of what comes to Creation through me, because I had no idea what I was going to type before that moment. Each and every movement is a new word that comes to life, and the stitching together of each sentence brings greater clarity to the whole design. It is amazing to be a part of this, and I am humbled at the gift, because it seems more like I am just receptionist taking dictation than the author behind each post.
All of what I have described so far is my internal exhilaration at becoming One with the products of my Genesis. It would be so easy to step into a Messiah complex with wonder at my own hands if it weren’t for the fact that I know it is a result of the Peace and Surrender I have with the Presence within me, the True Creator of All, the Master Hand of 14.6 billions years of work, and I am just One intricate little detail that has sparked the interest of my Sovereign, who is One in all and with all, without exception.
There are other perks as well! I now find myself, with over 500 followers, having had over 5000 views and representative of over 40 countries around the globe. I never even conceived of being read outside of the United States, but yesterday I had near a 100 views from Greece alone, and the United Kingdom, and ect, etc, etc…. That is both humbling and exciting at the same moment. I watch with great anticipation throughout the day as my numbers and statistics grow and I find I am uplifted and overjoyed that from my little office at home I am reaching out beyond what I even dreamed could be a possibility with this, and I’m only just getting started. That is spectacular, and I find myself eager for tomorrow, but more importantly, valuing each moment today.
The last benefit I want to expound upon that I’ve discovered here is ALL OF YOU! I swear it is like a family of writers that I never knew existed before a couple of months ago. I am encouraged to write more, praised for my efforts, exhalted for my posts, and when I open up and share my struglles (and life has brought me many) I find support from my fellow members. And the greatest gift of all, is I find the beginnings of my greatest dream, to see cultures, countries, and religions befriending me and each other in spite of our differences and that is the MOST AMAZING GIFT OF ALL, and it is because of each and every one of you that reads and comments on these posts. For this gift, I can never express the depth of my gratitude and WONDER at the majesty you all possess. My Love and Affection for you all is True. A with this I end the post with my most profound:
