Our New Clothes***
My friends, a new energy is upon us. Some of you may feel it. It is like a wonderful new set of clothes! As soon as you put them on you are overcome with the urge to dance! You look in the mirror and find that you are ten years younger. As you get used to these clothes, you discover your aches, pains and sadness falling away. Make no mistake, these are magical clothes that engender broad smiles, tender insights, and bursts of outrageous laughter.
Little did we know how terribly dull and restrictive our old outfits were. This is because, no matter how well they may have been made, they lacked magic. Our new clothes are infused with the alchemy of Spirit, for this is where they were forged. They are free of course. We have earned the right to wear them through our desire, our perseverance, and our tears.
Yes, I have seen old men and women, twirling elegantly around the ballroom floor, their broad smiles full of delight. “This is our birthright”, they whisper. “Come join the dance. You already have what you need. All that must be done now is to live fearlessly. And this you shall surely do, my friend, this you shall surely do”.
