Only an instant does this world endure.
This is a thought which can be used to say that death and sorrow are the certain lot of all who come here, for their joys are gone before they are possessed, or even grasped. Yet this is also the idea that lets no false perception keep us in its hold, not represent more than a passing cloud upon a sky eternally serene. And it is this serenity we seek, unclouded, obvious and sure, today.
We seek Your holy world today. For we, Your loving Sons, have lost our way a while. But we have listened to Your Voice, and learned exactly what to do to be restored to Heaven and our true Identity. And we give thanks today the world endures but for an instant. We would go beyond that tiny instant to eternity.
It was a day where I sat still most of the time and had the most amazing experience. I still can’t work out who pushed Story through my letterbox, but the first two chapters have kept me engrossed for huge chunks of time, so much going on in my head, so many AHA moments.
I’ve been telling more and more people that I have a new job starting on Monday. It feels very real, I’ve been clearing my space and getting things in order. Even my body’s adjusting and has started waking up on near 7 a.m.
I went to a book launch by Pastor Lauren Woodstock tonight at the Millennium Centre on Dudley Road, a book called Your Food, Your Health. There was a strong church contingency, and afterwards I got chatting to one of the pastors who is also her publisher. He made an interesting suggestion for a self-help book written in fiction that could certainly occupy my time from 9 a.m. – 1 p.m. each day. He’s also interested in making films.
I don’t want to say weird – but I’m going to have to.
