Good Morning Beloved
A sweet grandmother telephoned St. Joseph’s Hospital. She timidly asked, ‘Is it possible to speak to someone who can tell me how a patient is doing?’ The operator said ‘I’ll be glad to help, dear. What’s the name and room number?’
The grandmother in her weak tremulous voice said, ‘Norma Findlay, Room 302.’
The operator replied, ‘Let me place you on hold while I check with her nurse. I have good news, her nurse just told me that Norma is doing very well. Her blood pressure is fine; her blood work just came back as normal and her physician, Dr. Cohen, has scheduled her to be discharged on Tuesday.’
The grandmother said, ‘Thank you. That’s wonderful! I was so worried! God bless you for the good news.’
The operator replied, ‘You’re more than welcome. Is Norma your daughter?’
The grandmother said, ‘No, I’m Norma Findlay in 302. No one tells me anything’
Discover Letting GO & Letting God

Affirmation: Letting go and letting God prepares a smooth and easy way before me.
The power for October is Power. I think it fits appropriately with our out-reach project this month very well. As we work with the People’s Place emphasizing the “Purple Purse” campaign, we see how getting into our Power is required when facing domestic violence and learning what steps we need to take to resolve the issue…whether it is counseling or leaving; it’s a difficult choice.
We have a Special Guest this morning and she has a few words for us about her experience with Domestic Violence and the Purple Purse Campaign that the People’s Place is participating in.
So, please let’s warmly welcome Shacre as she shares with us today.
The important thing to remember is we have resources to aid in our ‘learning opportunities’. They may be of a ‘sense’ nature, meaning of this physical world, and so we have resources such as doctors, security people, and community outreach organizations like the People’s Place.
But, we must not forget the Spiritual resources we have also. Our reading this morning listed some very nicely: Divine strength, grace, faith, self- confidence – these are gifts of INNER STRENGTH.
Our lesson today is about Letting Go and Letting God. This is another resource available to us when we are facing a growth opportunity.
How you ask? By letting go of our ego trying to DO everything OUR way, we often find the way easier, and we are quicker to finding peace.
When we let go and let God, we often find the way easier because the Divine within is guiding us to the BEST path to resolve the issue.
Have you ever paid attention to your dog as you are walking? If you are letting them go at their own pace and path, they will more often than not, find the easiest path to take as you wander through the woods.
We would do well to follow the wisdom and insight of our four legged friends.
The rivers and streams do the same thing. They go with the flow, in and out and around things and objects.
When we let go and let God, we find answers that we would never have thought of on our own because when we open up to the Divine Universe, all the answers become available to us, we just have to be open to them.
Remember the story in the Bible about the Tower of Babel? What was the REAL lesson there? The people of Babel wanted to build a tower to heaven…to God. And so they started working together to build this tower. And, supposedly, (stay with me), remember it’s a story and it’s a lesson in Jewish history…God wasn’t happy about it and so he made everyone speak a different language. They couldn’t understand each other and so, that was the end of the tower.
Here is where I stopped reading the Bible when I was young. I figured what’s the point. God didn’t want us to get along.
Almost like The Game of Thrones when Jon Snow was killed…I threw the book across the room figuring there wasn’t any hero or heroines left….but I digress…
But if we take that story from a different perspective, looking through the eyes of Spirit, we see that this is another story telling us to look within, not outside for help, guidance. Let go of our ego telling us “WE CAN BUILD THIS TOWER TO THE HEAVENS ALL BY OURSELVES!”
Ego, be gone…let go and look to your Buddha, your Goddess with in.
We often hear, “Do you want to Be right or be happy?” Let go of ego, of doubts and let the Divine Universe guide you, bless you, BE you.
The phrase, ‘I let go and let God’ is become something of a cliché. But like most clichés, it’s a simple way of expressing a profound truth. Truth is still the truth, whether or not we believe it. That is the beauty of the truth.
Eckhart Tolle said; “Whatever the present moment contains, accept it as if you had chosen it.”
“Just let go. Let go of how you thought your life should be, and embrace the life that is trying to work it’s way into your consciousness.” – Caroline Myss
