BROWN GIRLS DON’T NEED TO WORRY: OUR WORK IS DONE, by Cecilia Loving

God is a Brown Girl Too 2010 Retreat 235When we are called to do something, the work that we know we need to do in the physical world is already done in the spiritual world.  Jesus said ask and you shall receive.

This is simply another way of saying, it is already done, but asking and believing are the tools that you need to use in order to see your desire take shape.  

This is easy, simple stuff that is so hard for us in our human-ness to do.  But Jesus taught us that we are gods. 

So when we are Spirit-moved into action, Soul-motivated to accomplish a goal, we don’t have to worry about how it will take shape. ownership 12

God always does the work that God appoints us to do. 

The right people will show up to help us, mentor us, bless us, guide us, prosper us.  The right situations will unfold.  Even if we can’t see the finish line, the road will rise us to meet us, and show us the way — when we are tuned in and turned on to Spirit.  It doesn’t matter whether you’re a multimillionaire from Scarsdale or a brown girl from the South Bronx, the same God is blessing you from the same Infinite Source. 

When the news is burdening your soul with the appearance of lack, it is even more important to affirm for yourself, my work is done.   When you truly believe that it is done and you speak it boldly and courageously in your life, Spirit will knock you over with the abundance of success.  You will find that you don’t need to be captive to a consciousness of lack because God is always making a way out of no way. 

You will know without a doubt that all of those things that you need in the material world are manifesting right now.  

You will start recognizing the pure potential that God is expressing as you. 

ownership 6You will begin to embrace the divine legacy that is yours because you know that the Word of God — spoken from your lips to the ears of the Universe is as good as it gets. great 7 You won’t need to tip-toe around the periphery of your greatness because you will acknowledge that Spirit expressed through you is the omnipotent creator of the shape and form and texture of everything in your midst! 

 My work is done!  So you can awaken to the truth that Jesus taught — that the Kingdom of God is within us.  And in that Kingdom of God, everything that you want, that you need, that you plant — is done. 

When we can say affirmatively and powerfully that it is done, we know that we do not need the economic appearances of health, the promises of others, the limited resources that we see in the physical world: the only thing that we need is the full and complete understanding of our divine nature. 

When we say it is done, we really do walk by faith and not by sight.  We really do step through our self-imposed boundaries and move into a new existence.

WHERE DO I BEGIN TO SEE THE DIVINITY WITHIN? by Cecilia B. Loving

God is a Brown Girl Too 2010 Retreat 134For ages, women and girls of color — of every nationality, ethnicity, and origin — have been dehumanized, marginalized, enslaved, murdered, raped, or otherwise oppressed — as the “least” of humanity.  But we are all Gods.

As the Bible teaches, whatever you did or didn’t do for the least of us, you did or didn’t do for God.

Whatever you did or didn’t do for your brother or sister who suffers from poverty, hopelessness or despair, you did or didn’t do for God.

Therefore, self-empowerment, self-enlightenment, and self-love for those often viewed as the “least of us” is the starting point for this ministry — because the liberation of God is a Brown Girl Too 2010 Retreat 073those most in need is the catalyst by which we all obtain salvation.

We must not only celebrate “brown girls” of all ages and hues, across every race, culture, country, sexual orientation, and self-expression — but also uplift everyone who needs  uplifting.  Somehow, through the passing of time and the re-writing of history, we have lost our divine legacy, or have simply turned a blind eye to the truth that we are spiritual beings in physical form.

The Bible says that God created human beings in “our image, in our likeness . . . . male and female” God created them (NIV Genesis 1:26-27).   This teaches us that God is not the proverbial old white man in the sky that so many of us grew up imagining God to be, but that each one of us are — as Paul said — temples of God, made in God’s image and likeness.

In Romans 8:9, the biblical witness said “Ye are not [merely] flesh, but… the Spirit of God dwells in you.”  In John 10:34-35, Jesus said, “it is not written in your law, I said, ye are Gods.”   In fact, Paul said that we “live and move, and have our being” in God (Acts 17:28).

DSC_0253If we really believe that God made all of us in God’s image and likeness, we should have no problem believing that each one of us, including the “brown girl”, is a God, too.  This is meant to expand the notion of humanity’s Oneness with God.

The oldest bones of the mother of all civilization were found in Africa.  If the brown girl, who is the foundation of all life, has become disconnected from spiritual Oneness, then so has all creation.

But if the brown girl can realize God as herself, then so can all humanity.  We are not authentic because we are religious but because we realize that we are power; we are love; we are truth; we are Spirit; we are Gods.

The truth, Beloved, is that we don’t need anything or anyone other than this full and complete understanding of our divine nature because when we know that we are divine, then we truly begin to experience the same consciousness that was in Jesus Christ.

The knowledge of this Truth is the Kingdom of God — without which, we will never be full and complete.  In God Is A Brown Girl, Too (© 2009), the Legend reads:

who will discover  the bones of the plain brown girl
whose skull is as old as time
buried deep in the recesses
of prayers long forgotten, 

older than Lucy’s bones,
older than Eve’s mother,
older than dirt. soul-sings-illustration-1.jpg

                                                            who will look long enough
into her empty sockets,
who will dare to see themselves
gazing there.
who will find the courage to lift
their legacy out of the realm of
the forgotten,
and speak the Truth
once again.

Not that we’re looking for God,

but, Oh, that we have found Her.
