Meditation reveals that stillness and peace is the heart of everything. We detach from the world, quiet our mind and return home to the Love of God, into the radical openness of awareness. The ego creates the illusion of linear time, of ups and downs, pleasant and unpleasant experiences, the illusion of separation. But the Eternal Silence and Oneness is deeper than this transitory play of waves. In every moment you can return home into the wholeness of life. In every moment the ocean of existence welcomes you: like a loving father, like a loving mother. Come home, you beloved wave of the Ocean, you beloved being, you Child of the highest Heaven. Everything is waiting for you, everything is inviting you, every beauty of creation is calling you into the eternal love affair with the Creator. The moment of our greatest fulfillment and realization of our True Self is always here and now.
You do not have to do something. Let go of the illusion that enlightenment, your great love or success awaits you in the future. Love, success and enlightenment are already here. The present moment is your doorway into heaven. The imperfection of this world reveals the Divine Perfection. What an amazing paradox! Listen to the Truth that is written in the Gospel of Thomas:
His (Christs) disciples said to him: On what day will the kingdom come? It will not come while people watch for it; they will not say: Look, here it is, or: Look, there it is; but the Kingdom of the Father is already spread out over the earth, and men do not see it. Saying #113
You can be one of those beings – the salt and light of the earth – who awake from the dream of separation and see with the awakened eyes of the Spirit the Kingdom that is already here. Beauty is here. Mystery is here. Truth is here. Love is here. Give yourself the permission to live with this awake presence, wherever you go and whoever you meet. You can be that embodiment of oneness. You can be that window into infinity. You can be this messenger of the almighty force of love, light and goodness. Give yourself and all of creation the gift of your awakening. It is not your job to fix the world or other people. Your only job is to remove the blocks to the awareness of loves presence within your own mind. What greater success does the world have to offer? Be in peace and the whole world is healed. Be in love and everything will fall into place. Be still and the gentle voice of the Spirit will guide you. Intelligent Infinity – or “the Father”, as Jesus said – will show you the Way.
