What is Sacred?

It is with honor that you treat someone or something sacred to you… something that is precious, unique… divine… even priceless.

That is you. That is every single person. Every single thing.

And, now more than ever, it’s a time to celebrate and honor the sacred beings that we are. All of us. No matter the color, the race, the gender, the orientation, the nationality.

And it starts with you. It starts with recognizing that YOU are sacred.  You are truly a sacred vessel of light. You are a sacred being of love.

Each and every one of us is totally unique and totally precious. And what that means is that the world needs YOU… exactly as you are… No one can replace you or be who you are. You are sacred.

And, whether there is a partner or not in your life at this moment, the experience of love and intimacy available RIGHT NOW is also sacred.

It’s precious and it’s something to be treasured, honored, and revered.

So if you are in a partnership, I ask you, “How can you express this sacredness, this preciousness, to the one you love?” Whatever you answered, plan to do that in the next couple of days.

If you are not in partnership, it’s a time to cultivate the love in your heart for you. (I know that might irritate you. It used to piss me off, but I hope you don’t wait the 15+ years I waited – and wasted.)

You see, the only way someone else – a beloved – can recognize you as sacred and treat you as sacred is when you do it first.

You have to recognize, know, and own your sacredness before someone else can. So ask yourself, “How can I honor my own sacredness and preciousness?” Whatever you answered, plan to do that in the next couple of days. Men, this goes for you too!

So here’s to honoring the priceless gift YOU!

    I left a comment already in Circle, to which you already responded. Quick summary: Sacred is what I treasure.
    As I went thru the day yesterday treasuring my self again & again, I found myself smiling a lot. A great practice!
