How are you all? I hope well! Shout out to all my Game of Thrones Fans! My hubby and I watched the season premiere last night and it was gold; minus the nudity of course lol !
This week in my faith, is known as Holy Week, so I couldn’t think of a better way to start off the week by discussing what “Holy” is. Holy by Google definition means this :
Now as people and as parents what makes us Holy ? Good question right ? Now how do we answer it.. The answers I believe come from within.. we just have to take the time to listen.
Facts : There are three major monotheistic religions that exist today ; Judaism, Christianity, and Islam. Each religion believes in one God, yet how they believe in God, even what they call God isn’t always the same. So what does that tell us?
It tells us that religious or not, we as people can still cherish, make holy, and keep sacred so many things in our lives, and they don’t all have to be in the same order. For example, I believe that the Bible is holy, I cherish my family, and I believe that marriage, the family, animals, and people in general ( especially children ) should be protected and sacred!
Why is this important to know? As a spiritual / person of faith, I believe that even those who may not fit into those three major religious categories, are still able to practice goodness in their lives. I also believe firmly that what GOD represents is simply LOVE. So if you have love in your heart and want to do good unto others and yourself, then you are as close to holy as you can get.
For all you history buffs like me, I want to share some of my favorite historical facts on what are said to be the holiest places around:
- The Vatican Rome Italy
- Kashi Vishwanath temple, India,
- Mecca,Saudi Arabia
- Lourdes, France
- Uluru-Kata Tijuta national park, Australia
- MountSinai, Egypt
- Cenote sagrado, Mexico
- Mount Kailas, Tibet
- Glastonbury Tor, England
- Hameenlinna Hattula Church, Finland
- Cologne Cathedral, Germany
- Osun-Osogbo, Africa
Now these are just a few places that I’ve researched myself, but trust me there are millions more. SO this tells us, that we can literally make anywhere, and anything, sacred, as long as it is a place or thing that brings US and others peace; after all isn’t that what HOLY is all about?
So today I wish for you, to remember what HOLY means, how you should use its definition example to lead a better life, and how you can always influence the world to make it a better place. There is no amount of change too little that doesn’t go unnoticed in the eyes of goodness.
