All fear is past and only love is here.
All fear is past, because its source is gone, and all its thoughts gone with it. Love remains the only present state, whose Source is here forever and forever. Can the world seem bright and clear and safe and welcoming, with all my past mistakes oppressing it, and showing me distorted forms of fear? Yet in the present love is obvious, and its effects apparent. All the world shines in reflection of its holy light, and I perceive a world forgiven at last.
Father. Let not your holy world escape my sight today. Nor let my ears be deaf to all the hymns of gratitude the world is singing underneath the sounds of fear. There is a real world which the present holds safe from all past mistakes. And I would see only this world before my eyes today.
The day started slow and then sped up, if not in reality, then certainly in my head. I meditated – something I haven’t done properly in a while. Maybe it was preparation for the Reiki share I was going to attend later in the day. That too, I haven’t done in a while – in fact many years.
I went to a work reunion in the evening, a time when there was ample opportunity, if I wished, to focus on past mistakes, both those of myself and of others. But thankfully most of the people wanted to focus on the good things happening in their lives, on their achievements since they left, and on their future plans. It was great fun, but I was grateful to hit my bed at midnight.
Maybe the fatigue it was partly due to the news that one of my aunts in Jamaica died, just short of her one hundred and first birthday.
