How can we fructify our talents, dear Ones?
and put them to good use for the sake of making this world of ours a better and brighter place?
The message I received this morning, through the Gospel of Matthew 25:14-30, the Parable of Talents, in the church of Saint Germain les Corbeil, France, was incredibly similar to the one I received 14 months ago in the same church and via the same Gospel.
How can it be that Destiny, or the Divine, if you will, brings us twice to the same locale where are meant to receive a message that transcends time and space—knowing that I found myself here today because of a death in our family two hundred miles away?
The message I heard 14 months ago was about our Light; shining it forth and high. Here is an excerpt of Matthew 5: 13-16:
13 “You are the salt of the earth. But if the salt loses its saltiness, how can it be made salty again? It is no longer good for anything, except to be thrown out and trampled underfoot.
14 “You are the Light of the world. A town built on a hill cannot be hidden.
15 Neither do people light a lamp and put it under a bowl. Instead they put it on its stand, and it gives light to everyone in the house.
16 In the same way, let your Light shine before others, that they may see your good deeds and glorify your Father in heaven.
The message that fell upon my ears this morning concerns our talents—or our Light, if you will—and the necessity to put them to good use, so that they can fructify, they can bring fruits, and nourish others.
The irony of this “nourishment metaphor” is that I came to church this morning with two boxes of cereals in my backpack; two boxes that I had bought for my brother at the local supermarket.
Once we reflect on the circumstances that propel us toward the place where we are meant to receive, we cannot but be blown away by the ‘limpidity’ of Source and the ‘generosity’ of Spirit.
We are One, dear Ones, in Unity Consciousness, and sharing our talents, as well as shining our Light, is our main reason for being.
Looking forward to being All of us together again on Thursday.
