“The world has been abnormal for so long that we’ve forgotten what it’s like to live in a peaceful and reasonable climate. If there is to be any peace or reason, we have to create it in our own hearts and homes.” ~Madeleine L’Engle from A SWIFTLY TILTING PLANET
I am uplifted to fully realize that there is only one life, that life is the life of God, and my life is that life of God. While it may not feel that way 100% of the time, IT IS SO 100% of the time.
I do not do a spiritual bypass by ignoring condition that brings me to my absolute breaking point. Ernest Holmes says: “In the Science of Mind, we do not say everything is all right, when it is all wrong. We do not say peace, when there is no peace, but rather we discover what is wrong and why we do not have peace.” So I embrace it all simultaneously– the peace that passes human understanding and the chaos that feels like life right now. This is the wholeness of my life as God’s life.
This week I just let it be- all of it- without judgment, criticism, or manipulation. I ask myself, “What is mine to do? Have I done that?” and if my answer is no, I do it; if the answer is yes, then I just BE. From this beingness, I see fear turn to love. Living in my loving heart and home, I choose to see my world as a world that works for everyone and a life that works for each of us.
I see politicians, business people, spiritual/religious leaders, news media, sports teams, social activists, essential workers, and all medical personnel cooperating to create the highest good FOR ALL now.
The more I talk about infinite peace of mind, the stronger it grows in consciousness, and as I persist in thinking peaceful thoughts and speaking peaceful words, I bring into my experience the feeling of the great unlimited nature of the Divine that is beyond description.
I am grateful to know this Truth of wholeness as my life. I relax knowing that Love points the way, and Law makes the way possible. I release my Word to the Law, allowing it to be.
And so it is.
