Family Love = ONENESS
Hello, my friends,
Today is March 4, 2019. Exactly 50 years to the day that my ‘baby sister’ Micaela was born. Our family gathered last night at a great restaurant in Red Bank NJ (Patrizia’s) to celebrate. We had a private 2nd-floor room which provided a beautiful view of Broad St. that was accompanied by a just as beautiful snowfall. We did what we always do when we gather as a family. We eat, we drink, we tell many stories and we laugh our asses off! All in the name of love. Which, for those who’ve read my book know that love is one of the six words that I equate to what we are here as spiritual beings having this human experience. For those who don’t know, I use the acronym ‘S.T.E.V.L.S.’ which stands for Spirit, Thought, Energy, Vibration, Love, Soul. As these six words are interchangeable and they all represent Oneness, and what we are at our very core.
And so you see, ‘Love’ is one of those words. And as it pertains to the ‘Family Love’ that we got to share last night, well I don’t know if there’s anything better! Because like most families, we don’t get the chance to get together as often as we’d like. Occupations, schedules, and life in general always seem to get in the way. But when we do plan these special events like we did last night, it is always something special! Last night in particular, as each one of these family gatherings that we now have all come without our Matriarch, my Mom. Mom passed away in January of 2018 and although our lives will never be the same, boy do we sense and feel her presence! Especially like at an event that we had last night as it marked the 50th birthday of her ‘baby’. And how Mom made her presence known last night was ‘classic Dolores’! We were a party of 15 and we were seated at a large square-shaped table that had to be about 12′ x 12′. So as you can gather from those dimensions, there was no way anyone would be able to get underneath the table. Except for Catherine. Catherine is my adorable soon to be 6-year-old great-niece who loves to explore! Unbeknownst to us, she was under this massive table and came out with a birthday balloon that said ‘Wishing You a HAPPY BIRTHDAY!’ Well, we immediately knew that it was my Mom’s way of letting us know that she was absolutely with us on this special occasion! And as you can imagine, it led to some happy tears.
You see folks, ‘Family Love’ so embodies Oneness. It’s that bond that so many of us get to experience in our lifetimes. For those who do not, I sincerely send you prayers of love in the hopes that something else in your life can take its place. Family is truly all that we have in this lifetime, and it’s what carries us forward in so many difficult moments we face in life (like when you lose your Mom). And because so many people can relate to family love, I’ve often wondered what it would be like if we felt that way towards ALL OF HUMANITY? Just imagine having the love and respect that you do for your family, and sharing that with EVERYONE! Yes, honestly try to envision that. Hey, you never know!
In Continued Oneness,
