I aspire to be truly helpful in each and every moment.  Helpful to myself, first and foremost.  Helpful to my loved ones next.  My loved ones are not just my family and friends, but also everyone who participates in this Power of Love Ministry.  I pray for us all every day.  I pray for all humanity, the earth and all the kingdoms of the earth each day.  How could I leave anyone out?

This is a time of intense challenges.

Do you know anyone who hasn’t been experiencing intense challenges this year?  I do not.

This morning, I’m watching the progress of the hurricane Irma making its way north and praying for all who are affected.  This is what A Course in Miracles calls being truly helpful.

Each day in my own practice of prayer, I pray for all of us to let go of the past and all prejudices and misperceptions of any kind.  I pray for us all to see and know clearly, to feel clearly, the Love of Spirit in through and around us in each moment, at all times, in all situations, regardless of what is occurring.

Yesterday in my Spiritual Espresso, I wrote about holding the High Watch for our loved ones in Florida who are anticipating the hurricane.  And holding the High Watch is the most helpful thing we can do for our loved ones.

One of the most powerful spiritual practices I know is to follow this passage in A Course in Miracles, which tells us:

“You can do much on behalf of your own healing and that of others if, in a situation calling for help, you think of it this way:

I am here only to be truly helpful.
I am here to represent Him Who sent me.
I do not have to worry about what to say or what to do,
    because He Who sent me will direct me.  
I am content to be wherever He wishes,
     knowing He goes there with me.
I will be healed as I let Him teach me to heal.  T-2.V.A.18.

I call this the Purpose Prayer, because it tells us clearly what our purpose is.  Our purpose is ONLY as follows:

To be truly helpful, which is to represent Love (God).

So, as the storm is approaching, whether it’s a hurricane or cancer, whether it’s bankruptcy or fire, divorce or disaster, let us decide to fulfill our purpose.

How could we have a purpose to be truly helpful and represent, or re-present Love, if we didn’t have everything pre-installed?

The Kingdom is pre-installed.

We look within to find it.

We find the courage to look within and to realize that all the judgments we have about ourselves are worthless and have no place in our fulfilling our purpose.

We are willing to see beyond the judgments to the Kingdom that is eternally within us.

All that we need is within our willingness to seek the Kingdom first.

Then, Peace, Freedom, Prosperity, Wholeness, and Harmony are re-cognized by us.  These spiritual qualities, and more, have always been within us.

As I watch the hurricane progress toward more of my loved ones, I could feel helpless, worried, and afraid.  I feel concerned, but I am doing what I know to be truly helpful.  I am re-presenting Love.  That I am willing and grateful to be able to do.  It makes a difference.  It calms the storms internally and adds to the Peace in the world.

Let’s commit ourselves to doing this daily in order to be truly helpful.

I AM truly helpful.
I AM fulfilling my purpose.
I AM grateful to practice being loving today, now.
I AM grateful to be grateful.

If you’re finding what I’m sharing to be helpful, won’t you please share at facebook and twitter to let others know?  Thank you!
