I’ve stopped counting the times I’ve heard this phrase: May God be with you. It’s a lovely phrase and I know what is meant by it, but I like rephrasing it to this: “May I be aware of Love’s presence.” If I believe God or Divine Love is closer than my own breath, how could God not go with me, with you? When God feels distant, and I feel separated from love, I usually catch myself sleep walking through life, numbed by wants, shoulds, schedules or difficulties. When I shake myself awake, Love is right there. I like the reminder to remain awake to the Presence of Love, that constant energy force around me, around you, surrounding all. Perhaps the common phrase: may the Force be with you, could also become - may I be aware of the Force!
May our awareness and awakening impact the world!
