Masters Magic

It is raining this morning. Soft rhythm of nature quenching our thirst. Rumble of thunder is pulsing in bones like heart beat. Warm wet peace of spirit.

Nathan and I played golf yesterday before Masters coverage started. A perfect day, 85ยบ sunny and breezy. We played the best golf of our lives. He drove the ball 380 yards, I did 260. We each birdied. I had a save out of the deep rough, buried. We had more fun and enjoyed each other more than we had since law school. Masters Sunday Magic.

It's because I am living without guilt. I have graduated from any guilt about who I am or what I've done or God's judgment. I have no fear at all about hell or what God will think it I slip up and do a bad thing. I am utterly comfortable in my own skin which brings pure peace, patience. I love myself more than I ever have, more than anyone else does, and counter to everything we have been taught, this allows me to love others better. To marvel at how phenomenal my husband is in all that he does. I have no shame in loving myself that much and believe that every little thing I do will be the best thing I can do that minute. Believing you are that great and have that much potential makes magic happen. The confidence and pride and self-assurance cannot help but spill over on to others and bring their own bask of glory to themselves. It gives them the license to stand in awe of themselves.

Ask Jimmy Jones about how well life works when you have peace about who you are and all that you do.

"We ask ourselves, Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, fabulous? Actually, who are you not to be? You are a child of God. Your playing small does not serve the world. There's nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won't feel insecure around you. We are all meant to shine, as children do. We were born to make manifest the glory of God that is within us. It's not just in some of us; it's in everyone. And as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same. As we're liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others." Nelson Mandela

I know this is counterintuitive to Christians who believe we are born broken and that pride comes before the fall. My experience is just the opposite. Self-love bears all other loves.

Love yourself as much as I love me, without doubt and without reservation, and watch the magic happen all around you. You are absolutely phenomenal....perfect.

Have a beautiful, light-filled day.

  1. Dear Hilary Chaney,
    Jesus loves you more than you. His Love endures for ever and it is true. HE loves you more than all, even you cannot love you more than HE loves. Try Jesus once. Surely you can feel it. You are so special and loving to HIM.

    Try Jesus

  2. I've tried Jesus. He sat on my bed next to me and rubbed my back when I was sick. Then he shined the light and said go forth and tell others religion is not truth and you are the greatest god there is and human love is the greatest wave there is. He anointed me a prophet for the fulfillment of his own prophecy. How do you know Jesus loves you? What can you see touch or hear that proves he loves you? I'm saying I love you more than he or God have ever shown. I breathe, I bleed, I hug, my heart beats. That beats the hell out of the invisible God. You ask me to try Jesus, just once, which I have. I ask you to try my way, just once. The light will soon shine for all of us.

  3. I can feel Jesus, He is very close to my heart. I surely pray that HE should show HIS love to you. I repeat, just try to LOVE JESUS more than you love your self.

    Amen,
