One of my daughters is beginning to study the human body. Last weekend we were studying some of the definitions.
Cell and Nucleus (pl. Nuclei) were two of the words.
Cell – The basic unit of all living things.
Nucleus – The central part of most cells that contains genetic material.
As we were studying, she started thinking about how she used believe that her body was full of little people doing all of the work inside. When she was little used to talk about “Pooper pushers” and “Mrs. Wishy Washy” and the different jobs they did in her body. She told me towards the end of studying that it was awesome to hear that all of these little people really existed, and now she knew that they were called cells.
After savoring this sweet and precious memory, I started thinking about all of our cells as people too. I wondered about their individual wills within each nucleus, and I wondered if I ask all of the little people (cells) in my body to collectively turn their nuclei towards the Will of Our Heavenly Father – what might happen?
Obviously I don’t know the answer to this, but I think if every cell in my body is aligned with the Holy Will of Our Heavenly Father, it would be more difficult for me as a whole person to fall out of alignment with His Holy Will.
Sweet Lord, I pray to surrender to You at the most basic level of my body, and I pray that as my inner nuclei align with Your Holy Will I am given a New Clear Eye allowing my whole body to be full of Your Light.
The eye is the lamp of the body; so then if your eye is clear, your whole body will be full of light.
It is so amazing to me that as you try to find the smallest unit of time between two seconds, you reach infinity. Most of us always think of infinity as so big, vast and unimaginable, and often forget that it is also so tiny, minute and almost invisible!
I think this is why so many stress the need to live in the present moment! They know that by living in each present moment we have an opportunity to live in infinity. When we live in the past or the future, we skim the surface of each moment instead of diving down into the the infinity of the moment.
Be still, be quiet, listen, see it, touch it, understand it, and realize that the infinite is available to everyone and can be reached and felt and understood by everyone in every moment.
We all probably know someone who lives most of their life within the infinity of the present moment. We are drawn to them, and see it in their eyes, but they can’t take us there, they can only show it to us. In order to meet them there, we must take our own path diving down deep into the infinity of our moments.
Lord please still and silence our bodies, hearts, minds ,and souls so that we might commune with You within each infinite moment!
I am reading a book that talks about soul mates. To enjoy this book you have to first be open to the idea of reincarnation. If you can consider this with an open mind, then the book talks about the fact that you might not spend every life with your soul mate.
While reading this book I was thinking about this a lot and it made me wonder… what if my husband and I aren’t soul mates like I have always thought? What if we are just heavenly acquaintances working together in this life? This thought made me so sad.
Fortunately, I usually bounce back pretty quickly. I was sad for about a day, but then I decided there is no way for me to truly answer this question and maybe the answer hasn’t been written just yet anyway… maybe our free will comes into play as the question is slowly answered over the course of our lives through our thoughts and actions.
Therefore I am going to return to my original belief, that now has a little more substance and thought behind it. We are soul mates! Believing this with more conviction than ever, I now want to continue loving him, but loving him more, continue caring for him, but caring for him more, and continue connecting with him, but connect with him more. I want to find my joy in bringing him joy!
Then when this life is over and our souls meet again… we will have so much love in our hearts for each other, so many wonderful memories shared and so many lessons learned together that we will be soul mates… we will have written it in the stars!
Jesus said, “Whatever you ask in prayer, believe that you have received it, and it will be yours.”
