Pozo de la Virgen Sabana Grande is a sacred site in Puerto Rico where the Virgin Mary appeared to several school children in 1953. It would be appropriate that my friend, Jesus (yes that is his real name), would take me there. (Jesus came into my life five years ago in answer to a prayer for an English-speaking hair colorist in Puerto Rico. And as silly as that may sound, the point is that there is no detail too small to surrender to the Universe.) The energy of the site is felt as soon as you enter the Town and then is even more powerful at the spot where Mother Mary appeared. As I sat in meditation with Mary she told me to take out my notebook. She then started to speak, giving me this message for the world:
Picture your cells as crystal-clear droplets of water. They glisten like a drop of melting snow reflects the sun. Your body is filled with these glistening droplets. They come together to compose every fiber of your being. And in their joining is your strength.
You weave the tapestry of your own life. You have been given all the tools you need—the golden thread. What will you do with the golden thread? You have been given the loom strung strong. You have given the weft. And yes, there are “imperfections” in the threads,but that is only because that is how you see them. There are no imperfections. There is only the thread. Only you can create beauty from these threads. Whether your tapestry stays unwoven or it is completed, is up to you. What will you do with your golden thread? There are many tapestries that remain unfinished just like there are many melodies that remain unsung. When your time comes do you want to look back on an unfinished tapestry or do you want to look back on a vibrant and full weaving of the threads that were given to you? The choice is yours.
Weaving takes conscious, involved participation and action on your part. The loom, the threads and the weft are provided for you. If you take no action your tapestry remains unfinished. No one will finish it for you. They cannot. They know not what your tapestry should look like. Only you know that. You don’t need to see the final picture. You need to weave!

Look through all the veils of illusion that have been placed in front of you.
Your work is always inner work, but you do that through your interactions with the outer world. Just as with music—there must be a play between the notes and the silence. There would be no music if there were all silence or all notes. It’s about finding balance in life between the notes and the silence—between the action and the stillness.
He who sows mercy reaps mercy. And he who sows judgment reaps judgment. And he who sows
