‘Now are we one with Him Who is our Source.’
What time but now can truth be recognised? The present is the only time there is. And so today, this instant, now, we come to look upon what is forever there; not in our sight but in the eyes of Christ. He look past time, and sees eternity as represented there. He hears the sounds the senseless, busy world engenders, yet he hears them faintly. For beyond them all he hears the song of Heaven, and the Voice of God more clear, more meaningful, more near.
There is a silence into which the world can not intrude. There is an ancient peace you carry in your heart and have not lost. There is a sense of holiness in you the thought of sin has never touched. All this today you will remember. Faithfulness in practicing today will bring rewards so great and so completely different from all things you sought before, that you will know that here your treasure is, and here your rest.
Let not today slip by without the gifts it holds for you receiving your consent and your acceptance. We can change the world if we acknowledge them.
The only real bit of silence I got today was the hour or so on the massage table receiving reflexology and massage. There’s always a point in the treatment when the therapist presses the area of my feet representing my solar plexus and I’m instantly calmed, like a Mr Spock from Star Trek touch. So calming as well as revitalising was the treatment that I’ve booked an hour and a half for next time.
I didn’t really contemplate the lesson much throughout the day as it (the day) began with a run in the park and some resistance training at home, followed by lunch with a friend before heading for the massage. A long phone conversation and another visit by a friend took up the time till I was due to go to my Ceroc class. All that was left them was to go to bed.
I trust that my higher self had ample opportunity to practice today’s lesson.
