Today

There are questions that come forth about “What will happen -when or if- this or that comes true as predicted or speculated?”

While these questions can be useful up to a point, it is best for them to be the last questions to ask.  The better question always to ask is a question for us to best ask ourselves, because we ourselves are the ones that know the answers.

“What are we doing TODAY to bring forth the Christ Spirit in our lives and the lives of those we come in contact with?”  As Jesus said, “Do not worry about tomorrow.  Let tomorrow worry about itself.  Deal with today.” Matthew 6:25-34.

The questions of today are way more important to ask. Whether we brought pain and suffering to someone or whether we helped lift someone up, the question is here to ask.

Who is in our life that needs understanding and compassion, TODAY?
or Who were we rude to, or mean to or hurtful to, TODAY?
Who needs a kind word, TODAY?
or Who were we judgmental towards, TODAY?
Who can we forgive TODAY?
or Who’s life did we add pain and suffering to, TODAY?
Who can we show mercy towards TODAY?
or Who did we insult or show disrespect – TODAY?
Who can we pray for, TODAY?
or Who did we hate, TODAY?
Who can we help, TODAY?
Who needs our patience, TODAY?
Who needs gentle kindness, TODAY?
Who did we give a demonstration of love to, TODAY?

If it’s the future or phenomenon, or drama, or amazing and strange earthly occurances that we seek, then these are here today and gone tomorrow.  We more often treat them only as entertainment – and not anything that sways beliefs or actions. But, the acts of understanding, compassion, kindness, forgiveness, mercy and love are the miracles that are capable of changing – lifting up – lives, forever.

  1. Beautifully said, as always. Thank you Jodie, Stephanie

    PS: I’m working on two writing deadlines (Dec-Jan column for the Mt. Astrologer and my new moon update email); will call when those are finished.

    • Yes, but, there will be earthquakes all around the globe. There always has been. There always will be, and currently at a rate only slightly higher than has been happening for the last several eons. One big difference is that we know about them instantly, rather than weeks later.

  2. What are you predictions for the rest of 2014? Including natural disasters, the Middle East, world changes, atmosphere changes, and mind changes?

    • I’ll post some answers to those questions as time goes on, but not at this time. These things are all normal life issues and will all happen as normally as they ever have. There is nothing special – better or worse – about 2014. The patterns in all these areas will continue as we see them now. Some of these will worsen, but even that is the natural progression. Meanwhile, consider that God is with us and available to us fully in this very moment – present with us – but that we are so busy thinking about the future that we are missing the very presence of God in our midst right now.

    • Symbolically speaking, Yes. Allegorically speaking, Yes. Many times, already. Literally speaking, No.

      If you’re confused… Pray for wisdom. Pray for discernment. Pray for insight. Go to the One that is the source of these qualities in order to gain them.
