When most of us think of temples, we think of a gathering place of worship, a place to pay homage to God or "God Like Figure". The true temple is the light in us. The place where we go within to pray and receive answers to the prayers prayed. When we meditate or pray, we sit in our temple to commune with the Divine Source. We sit in the sanctum of oneness to voice our intentions. Our intentions are carried on light waves to be heard and shared with the Divine Source.
We have the power to create whatever we desire through prayers, meditation and creative visualization. Yes there is a God or a higher power, whichever your belief, but the creation or manifestation of what we want starts with us. Now it's not just as simple as thinking something and it will appear or happen, we have to put those thoughts into action. For some is easy to manifest or create their purpose or passion. As the old saying goes "be careful what you wish for or you just might get it.” Well that old saying is true, if you focus or think about something often enough it will happen, because you are visualizing an outcome and then you'll unconsciously take the actions to create it.
Togetherness is often associated with being with someone else. That's the companionship we have or long for, this is taught though society images. We always have to be coupled with someone to feel better about ourselves or feel complete. Yes being with someone makes us feel better and the time spent well worth being with someone.
Recognition is more than just giving a person praise for work done or of any from of accomplishment, and honoring God. Recognition is knowing, understanding and seeing the world, people and the energy around your for what they truly are. We must first accept the objects in our field of vision as they are and not color them. This will distort any the true view of what is placed before us. We have the ability to change nothing into something. What I mean by this, the strength of our minds and our free will can change anything into our desires, yet our heart and spirit truly knows it's not what you desire.
Understanding is a form of compassion. When we witness another's situation, circumstance, or emotional state, a bond is developed. This bond creates relatedness or a since of relationship. Then the relationship evolves to being one with the person, because of the emotional connection. With anyone we can relate too, a deep bond is formed and connected to them; it doesn't matter what was witnessed or felt. We have empathy for others whether we are in-tune with our emotions or not. However, we carry a great sense of compassion for others when we are emotionally vested in our life.
When the word job comes to mind, we think of the physical and mental labor encountered daily. Whether if it's a laborious task or something we are mindless or half hardheartedly doing, we consider it a "job".
Finding gratitude is not as easy as going to the grocery store to find what is on your list or finding a coin on the street, but it can be. We find gratitude in moments, such as the moments when we go to the store to find exactly what was needed or the coin on the street. Gratitude is an expression of love for what we have in our life, both material and non-material. When we express love what is received, we become open to receiving more and giving from our heart.
