'We are not, as we have led ourselves to believe, and contemporary personal development and spirituality teachers have taught us, the centre of the universe or powerful beyond anything we could ever imagine.At least this is not individually the case.We are a small part of what is a very beautiful, though fractured and flawed humanity.It is our ability to love and to extend love to any being or situation that is powerful and unlimited.'
Mother Earth writes a letter to humanity - each of us - to express her feelings and point of view on how we have treated her. She does not feel valued, loved and cared for. But no one who experiences abuse at the hands of another feels valued. right? In her own words, 'Know that my relationship with each of you is personal. And, as such, I will experience you exactly as you are. I will either benefit from your expression and the way you live. Or I will suffer because if it.'
Throughout many years of typing the word God into my phone I often made the error of typing an ‘H’ instead of a ‘G’. These letters sit close to one another on the keypad, and usually I was writing down the messages I was given in the middle of the night with one eye open and barely able to see. So, what I often wrote was, ‘Hod this’ or ‘Hod that’. This went on for quite a few years, without me ever really giving it another thought. But then the word Hod started to carry a bit of weight. I began to think there was a little more to my mistakes than I originally thought. And I came to the conclusion, already knowing that God had a great sense of humour, that he wasn’t as caught up in the word God for a name as we were. So Hod, or Hoddy when I was feeling playful, became my new nickname for God. Read on for more on Hod!
Religion is like someone putting a fence around God and expecting him to stay inside it while they take credit - and profit - for putting up the fence. How impressive. You put labels and restrictions on God. You imprison him and then claim wealth, power and influence as your reward. Did we ever think God would bow to or stay humbled by the religious and spiritual paths that failed him? And which still claim to speak on his behalf, and by doing so deny his own voice in the process. Not likely. And he hasn’t.
