The best medicine for healing the emotional
and spiritual “insult” of our current pandemic
When I smile, I remember my spiritual strengths.
When I smile, I align myself with the divine power in me.
Smiling helps me “center” on God’s presence in me.
Smiling helps me embrace that, “Blessed is he who comes in the name of the Lord,” refers to me and to everyone as representatives of Christ.
Smiling sends an internal message from God that travels on the unseen and unknown spiritual communication lines within me.
The message tells me that I am first and foremost a “child of God” – not just a “child of the world.” This ever new and yet ever ancient identity is the truth of my soul.
Smiling helps me pull back from the frantic seeking of the world and the fearful grasping of my ego and to center instead on the presence of God within me.
A smile can brighten the darkest day.
