Faith is knowing that we live in an ocean of divine love and intelligence, no matter the immediate circumstance. Faith is understanding that the thoughts we hold have creative power, so we can manifest our life experiences. He tried to walk on water with Jesus and sank. He saw the divine power in Jesus but, when trouble came, Peter claimed never to have met the man. We return to the ground of our faith again and again in the course of a day or a lifetime.

Spiritual strength is not the power to dominate but the inner wherewithal to persevere. Strength is calling on the spirit within to help us put one foot in front of the other through times of uncertainty, activating our inner reserves of faith, love and wisdom.
We will know what to do and when to do it. We might also call upon our strength not to act, but to wait in the awareness of divine order, knowing all is well. Strength is the inner resource that keeps us going. Equipped with the strength of the divine, we can face life fearlessly. Both are accumulated over the years.
Both inform our beliefs and actions now. Wisdom, on the other hand, not only includes the knowledge gleaned from human experience but the inner promptings that guide our lives. Wisdom is drawn from a deep reservoir of the divine within. It surfaces effortlessly when we allow it.
The New Year’s Quilt
Wisdom is God within us, ready to express whenever needed. Think of wisdom as your soul speaking to you, your Higher Self steering you in new and sometimes unexpected directions. Wisdom lets you know intuitively what is yours to do. Love is the basis of the world, the foundation of each particle, the invisible substance of all things.
It is the divine essence that binds together the whole human family. Love balances the masculine and feminine, the adult and child.
It incorporates enthusiasm and serenity, wild revelry and the quiet meeting of eyes, of souls. We are all connected by love, we live in an ocean of love, and we are love in human form. If there is only one God, there can be only one love — divine love that expresses in myriad ways and circumstances, animating our lives as human beings. This is the love that was born in Jesus and demonstrated in his life.
Love is the Christ child each of us carries within. Spirituality is often thought of as meek and mild, or sweet and serene. Yet how powerful is love? How powerful is the ability to create with our thoughts and words? How powerful are we when aligned with the One?
We have tremendous spiritual power, which gives us tremendous responsibility to stay focused on creating the kingdom of heaven, rather than being pulled in every direction by physical demands on our bodies, time and attention. Power comes from our relationship to life. More precisely, our relationship to ourselves. And our Selves. We exercise spiritual power by harmonizing our thoughts and words with the divine. Then we have no less than the power of God working through us. Imagination is the key to life.
Imagination is the genesis and generator of every idea, invention, or improvement ever carried out. My imagination is part of my divinity, a God-given ability I can use to create my life. My conscious thoughts have creative power, alongside the less-conscious but higher thoughts or guidance from my Inner Self.
Today, I open myself to imagination, allowing ideas to flow no matter how improbable they might seem at first. I can choose from the banquet of my imagination to nourish my life, knowing that the vision I hold will manifest. Understanding is an almost indescribable joining of head and heart, of knowledge and intuition. Think of a counselor who has been trained to understand people, but who also has a wordless understanding of what others are going through and how to help them. Think of a chef who has trained in culinary arts but who knows without a recipe which flavors will complement each other.
Spiritual understanding works the same way. First we learn about principles or we become convinced of our own divinity, then we incorporate the knowledge into our lives, and finally we live it as our being. The light of spiritual understanding might dawn in a brilliant flash or a gradual gathering of clarity. Either way, it allows us to see more clearly -- to see beyond mass consciousness, to see into other people no matter how they present themselves, to see a world of love even when we watch the news.
King Solomon in the Bible prayed for an understanding heart and made decisions by combining evidence with wisdom. We do the same. As you look back on your life, reflect on situations where understanding served you. In what areas of the foreseeable future do you want to ask for deeper understanding? What is called free will can get you into trouble, but exercising your will is also the only way to accomplish anything.
Much as you might enjoy your imagination, left alone, it might run wild with fanciful mental creations.
