COMMUNITY

Dear Friends, at this time of the deepening dark and the growing light, we join together in the community of spirit to share the joys and sorrows of the spiritual journey, the quest for love and awareness and self-realization. Each of you belongs to an ancient and eternal community: those who seek to know themselves. I welcome you, and I offer you this message from the Great Divine Mother, an excerpt from my book "The Great Goddess Calls Her Daughters: Wisdom of the Divine Feminine for Today's World" ((c)2003 Donna Leslie Thomson). In this book, the Great Goddess addresses Her daughters but the messages are intended for both women and men. Peace be with you this month...Donna

Community

She comes to gather Her daughters, to draw them into a circle, to heal old wounds of separation and isolation. She comes to remind them that they belong to a great community of spirit. She says:

My daughters, join me now in true community. I come to gather you into the community of those who worship life, who worship the star and sky, the sun and moon, the plant and animal, those who worship the Source of All. I come to gather you, my daughters, into the community of those who worship themselves, who honor the human, the spirit, the experience of life on earth. Oh, my daughters, the community of love, of life and of spirit is vast and eternal. No matter how often it is broken apart, dispersed and fragmented, it always renews itself. It always rediscovers itself. You know that community. You know you belong to it. That knowing is deep in your heart. You are not alone. You do not live in isolation. At every moment you are supported by the great community of all that is. To be a member of such a great community is in fact a great responsibility. To honor and connect with all your relations takes time. It is well worth it. As you take the time to honor the sky above your head, the earth below your feet, the person next to you on the train or the bus, as you take time to honor the tree, the grass, the child on the street, you realize that you are not alone. You fulfill your responsibility to your community, and you receive the blessing of your community. One thing you must know about the great community of life and spirit: you cannot be cast out from it. There are those who forget that they are a part of this great community but it will never reject you. Know then: you belong. You belong.

May all beings be happy, peaceful and free of suffering.

With Love,
Donna
