                                               We Stand On Holy Ground                                                                         

     The We Love Memphis Prayer and Meditation vigil September 4th was magnificent. I heard so many wonderful praises of Memphis that night. The one that stands clearly in my mind is We Stand On Holy Ground.

     I have always felt that Memphis is sacred. I am a transplant from the Mississippi Delta. I came here for the first time to the Cotton Carnival as a majorette in the Leland High School marching band in 1962. I fell in love with this city. Thus, I have lived in and out of Memphis since returning from England in 1968. However, my addictions kept me unable to give myself to my mission of service. Now 21 years clean, sober and smober I am able to live my mission, my dream in this incredible city called Memphis. But enough about "me…"

     Memphis is hallowed ground. "We" have hosted some dark energy because of choices individuals made that didn’t have anything to do with humanity as a whole. Now, as we emerge into "we consciousness" we may want to take a look at what we are capable of doing together. Love grows when one or more are gathered so it seems to me that if we gather a lot we will be able to actually watch love grow. If we become a community of Lovers of Memphis we will have the Pleasure of the View as others who come to feel the energy shift the way they live as individuals.  

    Memphis is sacred ground. We have so many incredible people here who are doing their individual work to bring love into being for us all. Now is the time when we can pool our resources and offer up our gratitude to Universe for the glorious help we are receiving as we move together to manifest change with light and love.

     Memphis is Holy ground. When we walk through the day we might recognize just how blessed we are to live where the ground under our feet is Holy. That is a beautiful way to shift the energy and illuminate just how fortunate we all are to be here right now "wholly" involved in the awakening. Memphis is really just a little, sleepy Delta town awakening to her own majestic attributes. She is awakening right along with us. That’s part of what is so much fun. Being able to feel her shake off the dream and make Her Holiness really visible for all to see. Take a look around you and breathe deeply the joyfulness of our city.
