The Transformation of Commitment – summary of Rev. Mary’s June 26th message

We’ve been talking about transitions during the month of June. Transitions can be scary, and some can require commitment, such as some transitions that we associate with June, such as graduation, getting married, and fatherhood. Commitment has both positive and negative connotations to most of us. It’s a promise or pledge to do something. We’d like to think we can have it all, and in the cosmic sense, we can. But, most of the time here on this plain, we do have to make choices. There is a lot we can be and do, but not everything. Each moment may bring choices – this or that. Not much happens til we choose, and each choice helps create our lives. We don’t have to make a huge commitment to everything, but important things require commitment, if we want to succeed in those important areas, such as school, raising children, relationships. A pledge means a commitment of attention and care.

What we focus on grows. What you send out comes back to you. God is omnipresent. If we are present, God is present. There is energy in commitment. We have ceremonies around commitment. That is how we say a promise is special. First, we must understand what we are commiting to, then have the intention, then release it to the Universe without worry. When you commit with this kind of energy, transformation happens. Release all doubt. Be unafraid. The power to choose is the power to create.
