Bread and Milk
The smell of baking bread filled my house tonight. As I thought of what I wanted for supper, I remembered watching Grandpa and Grandma eating their simple meal of bread and milk.
The memories of my visits as a child came alive and I sat down at the same table and chairs that they used and thoroughly enjoyed my simple meal of bread and milk.
We carry the physical DNA of our ancestors within each of our bodies. Some traits are stronger than others but we have a unique heritage that is like no other.
We have a look about us that outsiders can see and identify as common in our family lines.
No matter how hard we try to cover or altar our heritage, we can’t get away from the nose or ears or hair that we inherited.
These family traits are what makes us a special family.
That DNA can be damaged through our own abuses or it can be altered through our choices.
We also carry within each of our souls a unique spiritual DNA.
This spiritual DNA plays an even more important role than our physical DNA.
This spiritual DNA gives us the ability to do anything we choose.
There are many sources around the world that try to convince us otherwise.
When teachers, parents, siblings, church or governments tell us that we can’t do something, what they are telling us is that we must settle for less.
There is an inner voice within each of us that reminds us that we are capable of greatness.
It warns us when we are in danger and inspires us when we are feeling low.
Our spiritual heritage is a powerful tool as we navigate the waters of life.
Have you ever asked yourself, Where did that thought or ability come from?
Our spiritual families are watching over us and are encouraging us to develop these spiritual traits.
The blending of our physical and spiritual DNA are what makes this earthly experience so important for each of us.
What we do and what we experience will be passed on to our children and their children.
We can choose to enhance positive traits or we can choose to break generational abuses that have been passed to us.
We played a large role in choosing the lives that we now experience. We allowed, planned or created every experience that we are now living.
For every question or problem, there is an answer and solution.
Trust yourself and know that you are destined for greatness.
Take time each day to spend in quiet reflection.
Give thanks for all that we have.
This is the beginning of understanding the how’s and why’s of life.
You are not alone, you carry within you the DNA of strong pioneers and the DNA of the Gods.
Each of us can make a powerful difference in the lives of those around us who have given up on life.
A simple word of encouragement or a hug can make all the difference in someone’s life who is struggling.
We have inherited from our parents the spiritual and physical DNA to do anything we choose.
What will you choose this day?
