Good Wednesday morning to you, my dears. (Smile. I have always wanted to call people “my dears” like spiritual folks sometimes do. They always sound so loving when they say that.)
Today I would like to introduce you to an elder living in the United Kingdom named John Butler. Sometimes I listen to his YouTube videos about all things spiritual and holy and loving.
He sports white eyebrows and a Santa Claus beard and speaks so calmly and peacefully from his heart. He’s one of the most humble spiritual teachers I’ve stumbled across. He makes fun of himself, embraces his humanity, and yet keeps gesturing to the earth as solid and the heavens as holy.
This video caught my attention because he shares what I heartily believe (and often forget): Life itself is the teacher.
Isn’t Life teaching us all the time? Every single day we’re given what we need to digest, to look deeper, to relax , to explore, to seek, to let go? Life polishes us like gemstones: around and around in the rock-tumbler of Life.
If you listen to the end of this twelve minute video, you’ll reach the heart of his message. (In the beginning you’ll see the ordinary humility and laughter which pours out of him.)
I hope you enjoy this. Please let me know what you think. As always, blessings on your day.
Day 11 of a seventy-five day journey to more deeply connect with God, Spirit, Holy, Love…to explore “What the Heart Knows” during the waning days of 2020.
