Thought for the day – Ask Maureen

18 November, 2021

Hello Dear Readers.

Today I want to share with you a moment of my musing whilst out on my usual walk only today was a little more special.

I love walking it is free, healthy, and gives me great pleasure.

I am so fortunate to live in the countryside, yet not too far from civilisation.

My daily walks vary, but my favourite is walking beside the canal and pausing on one of the bridges to take in a bird’s eye view of the vista.

Today I drank in the lovely scene of gaily coloured canal boats on a still sunny autumnal day. My gaze settled on a drake making his way up the canal, causing a ripple behind him.  That ripple reminded me of the energy ripples that our thoughts leave behind.  As I have mentioned before our thoughts and beliefs create the experiences of our tomorrows.

And we all know that well known saying that tomorrow never comes, or does it?

The words we use, the actions we take, the mistakes or merits we make, all contribute to that elusive tomorrow. And furthermore, send out ripples into the collective consciousness. Whilst affecting our own DNA and wellbeing.

I highlighted Dr Masaru Emoto’s water experiment, “Water Crystal Healing) on words of love and hate,  in a previous article.

Jesus, or as we now call him Jeshua; phonetically pronounced “yeshua” never worried about tomorrow he said that today had enough troubles of its own, and simply left it at that.

He did a lot of his father’s work near water. And I am suddenly filled with calm and gratitude, as a wonderful peace settles around me.

There is something special about water, we wash away our sins through baptism, we cleanse ourselves, we refresh and restore ourselves when we drink water.  Walking near water restores us.

The Lord is my Shepherd psalm 23 comes to mind:

“The Lord is my shepherd I shall not want he makes me down to lie.  In pastures green he leadeth me the quiet waters by my soul he doth restore again and me to walk doth make within the paths of righteousness ern for his own sake.

And so, it goes read it you will be amazed at how peaceful you will feel.

  And so on with my walk in such a peaceful place, and we acknowledge that being in nature restores, repairs, and replenishes us.

Reduces stress, lowers blood pressure as the healing odic properties of air and nature, restore and revive us.

Jeshua, called the fisherman Andrew and Peter to him (Luke 5) after they had been fishing all night. Tired and grumpy from not catching a single fish.  He tells them to go out, as he steps into their boat, and points to an area. “Cast your nets there “!

A few words of protest begin to rise in Peter, he wants to say that they have fished along this stretch all night and caught nought.

But there is something commanding compelling, about this man, his steady gaze and easy smile, wipes away his doubt.

So, he and his brother obey.  Lo to their amazement they catch such a netful of fish, that Peter must dive in to help heave the bounty aboard.  “Lord he cries leave me for I am a sinful man.”  Something in Peter tells him that this is no ordinary man.

Jeshua, laughs “ahh all this because of a few fish.  Come with me and I will make you fishers of men.”

They must have thought him a strange fish to begin with!

Much later Jeshusa’s followers would adopt the fish as their secret sign the symbol that they were his followers.

He baptised using water, he told the woman of Samaria (John Ch4) all about her life at the well when he asked her for a drink of water, she ran into town and told others to come and see the man who told her all about her life.

He stayed and taught them about God as a loving father figure who loved and cherished them.  And he was sent to share this good news with them. Until then only the Jews held this belief, but his mission was to spread the good word of the brotherhood and sisterhood of God.

“Yes, all this passed through my mind as I gazed lost in thought”.

I had a thought I must put this to paper when I return home and share the good news with you dear readers.

Until next time, take care of one another and remember a problem shared is a problem halved.

I send you all love and light
