Ask God to rise within you

In this season of springtime, resurrection, and new life, we celebrate the resurrection of the presence of God within human hearts upon your planet earth. The so called chaos, turmoil, recession, and 'disastrous financial conditions' that you see on your news are in fact, the breaking apart of an eggshell of misunderstanding so the true spirit of humankind can be birthed. When your systems don't work you turn to God. You get resourceful. You draw from the gifts, talents, and love within. When your bank accounts are not stable according to the world's rules you turn to the one constant in the entire universe, the one thing that will always be there for you, the one force that will always be your rock and your salvation - and that is God and the great love that he is.

The presence of God exists within each one of you. The love of God can be found within your own human hearts. The desire to enjoy your lives truly and deeply through experiece, connection, and meaningful action is so much greater than the desire to experience joy through stuff, although you can have that too. There is nothing wrong with asking for material joys as long as they do not become your greatest priority. Make love your greatest priority. Love God, love self, love others. Seek God in all things. Ask God to fill your lives, your hearts, your minds, your bodies, and your spirit. Ask God to take over your finances, to guide your expression, and to fill your relationships. Ask that God's words be your words, and that God's love arise within you and spill out into every area of your life. In this fashion, dear friends, your lives will transform. Your material needs will be met. Your relationships will deepen and become more authentic, and the ones that cannot will fall away, for each one of you is one of the many faces of God. Each one of you breathes the breath of God. Each one of you holds out the hands of God - to comfort a friend, to welcome a stranger, to receive from one another.

Dear ones, ask God's presence to rise up within you during this season of your springtime. This is the resurrection you are seeking. This is the salvation you are searching for. This is the birthing of a new reality upon your planet earth and although yes, there is turmoil, there is chaos, there are systems buckling under the weight of their own lack of integrity, there are also grand and glorious expansions of love, truth, peace, and new understanding.
