Goin' Courtin'

Seeds IX, 37

Seed: Goin’ Courtin’

Courtin’—that’s a really old-fashioned concept, isn’t it? I wonder if anyone goes courting any more. I was thinking of this song from the movie of Seven Brides for Seven Brothers because of a headline in Science of Mind magazine. It read:

I’m being courted by God, and so are you.

How cool is that? Did you ever think of a relationship with the Divine that way? The OED says that courting means the paying of courteous attention. Certainly the attentions of the Divine to us are courteous, at the very least. Probably more like fascinated, entranced, delighted, wondrous. Bask in that kind of attention for a sec.

Now, just for fun, consider turning that courteous attention around.*

Court the Divine!

Be serene,

Dr. Susan Corso

*P. S. Some of us call this meditation.

Seeds are remarkable gifts. Sown in consciousness, they bring you to the most important part of your being—your Divine Spark.
