Life Cannot Be Diminished
by Rev. Martha Quintana, Senior Minister
Knowing that there is only One Life, I call this Life right now. Life is known by so many names, God, Mother/Father, Abraham, Mary, Pachamama. By whatever name It is known, Life is at the core. Life is Love, Light, Happiness, Beauty, Truth, and Health. Life is all there is!
I am one with Life; so completely unified with It, that all I know is love, light, happiness, beauty, truth, and health. I am one with All that Is. As I know this for me, I know this for the person reading this prayer.
In our oneness, I affirm and declare health. Health can only be masked, not taken away. The true nature of all life is the true euphoria of life greeting itself. Life greets itself in a smile, a nod of the head, a true act of kindness, and in the cry of the newborn baby. This life is also contagious; a good belly laugh, a moment of tenderness, and a happy word between strangers. The life, of which I speak, is everywhere present and cannot be diminished. I affirm and declare that the appearance of the coronavirus is already faded. There is no thing to fear and all life to embrace. As each of us live, move, and have our being in God, we release all fears, all anxiety, and all anger. Eternal life already has our back.
I give thanks for a healthy body and life. I give thanks that each member of our congregation is healthy and that together we are a beacon of light beaming blessings everywhere. Life is good and we are all free to explore the deep experience of goodness. I am grateful. With this, I release my word back into the Law and know this prayer is done. And so it is. Amen.
