“We cannot kindle when we will, The fire that in the heart resides

The Spirit bloweth and is still, In mystery our soul abides”

[Matthew Arnold]

Our soul, the connection with Spirit and the Divine. Sometimes we feel so close and know we are one.

“How we remember and what we remember, and why we remember,” Christina Baldwin is quoted in Simple Abundance, “form the most personal map of our individuality.” This passage by Sarah Ban Breathnach continues explaining that “Each life experience leaves a layer of memory like a deposit of sediment: things we’ve loved and moments of contentment we’ve cherished that when recalled, reveal glimmers of our true selves.”

I am thankful for all the phases and experiences of my life, becoming my true self.

May we all be blessed today to remember, to give thanks, and to be one with Spirit.
