For in this hope we were saved. But hope that is seen is no hope at all. Who hopes for what they already have?2 Corinthians 4:18
So we fix our eyes not on what is seen, but on what is unseen, since what is seen is temporary, but what is unseen is eternal. 2 Cor 4:18
Faith is the confidence that what we hope for will actually happen; it gives us assurance about things we cannot see. Hebrews 11:1
Abraham Lincoln had a dream. Martin Luther King Jr had a dream. Susan B. Anthony had a dream. The Master Jesus, the discipline Paul, the list of dreamers, of “crazies” goes on in our histories. These dreams were crazy dreams. Minorities, and/or women were considered less than men of certain races, ethnic groups. Yet a small seed planted in the hearts of these leaders, given credence by other visionaries, other dreamers, who stood behind the outspoken, who followed the lead of the goals. No, the path to the light, the path to the right is never easy. Battles, both real physical battles, even wars are fought over these dreams. Spiritual warfare on the level of the spiritual plane consistently every day we must put our armor on to go into the fire, stand firm. Each of these men’s “sins” were brought to light. Mistakes , Lincoln was married to a “divorced “ lady. Oh my gosh, he shouldn’t follow this dream as he was such a person . Martin Luther King Jr, sat where he wasn’t meant to, Susan B Anthony held out her wrists demanding to be handcuffed to make her point. I know most often we feel that these dreams were huge ones that affect many people. Yet our lives, our own dreams are no less important to the whole scheme of the universe. Our loves, our lives affect everyone around us. We conduct ourselves with honor, with belief, with the knowledge that each day we battle spiritual warfare, but that light always overcomes darkness.
Animal totems: Moth: Sister Moth comes out of the dark cocoon into the beautiful night. She holds the secrets of our dreams, the inner dreams, the ones we share in whispers in the hopes of our heart. The symbol of Mari, the goddess of dreams, who reigns over the shadows, the Unspoken hopes, the dreams, that come to us from spirit. Moth flies into the light every time, which this totems medicine reminds us to keep seeking the light, no matter how dark the path seems to get, the darkness comes to clear the way for ALL things to come to light.
