Our Better Angels

We are not enemies, but friends. We must not be enemies. Though passion may have strained, it must not break our bonds of affection. The mystic chords of memory will swell when again touched, as surely they will be, by the better angels of our nature. Our 16th President – Abraham Lincoln
Dear sweet Spirit, in this moment I pray and know that I am connected to the One Infinite Life, which connects us all. In the words of Dr. Ernest Holmes, that Life is my Life, and your Life – right now. And what I know to be true is that our connection is so deep, so strong, so intimate at its core, because it is rooted in Divine Love. The Love we feel for each other is a reflected image of Divine Love. When we allow ourselves the memory of that Love, we are uplifted to another realm, far away from the chaos of our everyday existence, far away from the maddening crowd, so to speak. When we gravitate to that Love, we place our individual energy and indeed power into the greater collective consciousness. And in that moment, we remember the better angels of our nature, and join together in peace, harmony, and indeed love.
Tune in to your better angel in each encounter with another, and feel uplifted through that connection to the Divine. With loving gratitude, I declare: And so it is!
