Today is the start of Holy Week and Palm Sunday. Palm Sunday celebrates Jesus procession into Jerusalem where people threw down palm fronds to celebrate his entry into the holy city. Many religions process around their churches waving palm fronds and crosses as a symbol of this triumphal event.
No matter what your belief may be this is a spiritual time and a reawakening of our true spiritual self.
“The Christ, He who was in the ancient of days, is the flame of God that dwells in the spirit of man. He is the breath of life that visits us, and takes unto Himself a body like our bodies.
He is the will of the Lord.
He is the first Word, which would speak with our voice and live in our ear that we may heed and understand.
And the word of the Lord our God builded a house of flesh and bones, and was man like unto you and myself.
For we could not hear the song of the bodiless wind nor see our greater self walking in the mist.
Many times the Christ has come to the world, and He has walked many lands. And always he has been deemed a stranger and a madman.” ~Kahlil Gibran in Jesus The Son of Man
Take time out of your busy lives and reflect on the spiritual blessings that are being poured out at this time. No matter what you may be going through the blessings are still coming and it is up to us to recognize the miracle of each day.
Let me be politically incorrect and say that I believe without a doubt in the Divine Creator and know that every day we need to pray just like we take a shower, eat, and sleep. In all things give thanks and be prayerful.
May you be blessed now and always,
