‘My grievances hide the light of the world in me.’
My grievances show me what is not there, and hide from me what I would see. Recognising this, what do I want my grievances for? They keep me in darkness and hide the light. Grievances and light cannot go together, but light and vision must be joined for me to see. I want to see and this will be the means by which I succeed. Specific applications for today’s idea are:
Let me not use this as a block to the light. The light of the world will shine all this away. I have no need for this. I want to see.
‘My salvation comes from me.’
Today I will recognise where my salvation is. It is in me because its Source is there. It has not left its Source, and so it cannot have left my mind. I will not look for it outside myself. It is not found outside and then brought in. But from within me it will reach beyond, and everything I see but will reflect the light that shines in me and in itself.
Specific applications include:
Let this not tempt me to look away from me for my salvation. I will not let this interfere with my awareness of the Source of my salvation. This has no power to remove salvation from me.
The weekend was still swimming around in my head on the drive back toBirmingham. I was still on a high, still very happy from meeting up with my son and the recording we did. Still happy with my book and CD sales and my contacts, and happy with the fact that I danced, and danced, and danced on Saturday night. Happy to sit in the sun and read my friend’s book and give him feedback in the same day. (One day I will write small books again that can be read in an afternoon) Nothing could bring me down off my cloud nine!! Happily I went to bed.
