When Nouns and Verbs Hold Hands
by Carol S. Helms, RScP
There is one Life, that Life is God’s Life, that Life is the Essence of all that is, and that Life is Love and Faith in action. I affirm the power of Love and Faith in action. Slowly, but surely, I recognize that it is one thing to know, and another to do. One of my walking meditative prayers is asking Spirit to let me know what You would have me know today; let me do what You would have me do today; let me be what You would have me be today. I am reminded that a noun without a verb is an incomplete sentence; a reaction; a half-truth; a trophy sitting on a shelf gathering dust from inactivity. Verbs are the legs, the wheels; the tools that, when noticed and dusted off, result in manifestation.
This morning it dawned on me that I am asking God to be the nouns and verbs, passively letting the dust settle on me. Like the ebb and flow of the ocean, nouns and verbs only work if working together. Today I stop waiting on Spirit to know, do and be me; and humbly accept the magnificent gift of being a manifestation of Love and Faith in action.
I recognize the power of Love and Faith in action by releasing the knowing of Spirit that is inherent in each of us; by releasing any hesitancy to exercise the doing that has been standing in the ready without expression; by releasing the being that Spirit created me to be with confidence and blessed assurance.
As I write this I am falling in love with the Love that is my essence; the essence of everything and everyone. I let myself be Love; I let go and practice feeling all the Love of the Universe flow to me, through me and from me. I am the conduit of Love expressing. I am free; I am blessed. I am that that I am.
I release anything the blocks Love from flowing to me, through me and from me. I release all facets of my being; my combined spiritual, mental, emotional, physical, financial and creative being, and let the nouns and verbs come out to play. I transform the ache of grief into hugs for the living; I release anything blocking the joy that has been sitting on the shelf way too long; I give myself permission to be that which I am created to be. I am Faith and Love in action. I affirm the power and presence of all the Love in the Universe that is each of us; all of us. And so it is, and so I am!
