Between God and me there is no in-between ~Meister Eckhart
When you commune with the Divine Presence, you are communing with your highest self; the part of you, that is really all of you, the sense of Self which, inseparable from God, bridges with Divine Intelligence. It is the Divine in you, revealing ItSelf as you - a communion with all creation.
What have you done lately to commune with your Self and to exchange intimate thoughts and feelings on a deep spiritual level? We all have barriers to connecting w/Divine Intelligence. Most of us began by praying to God. As you begin to transform your thinking, you pray through God and, once transcended, you pray with and, ultimately, as God. You may wonder what can we do to release barriers of communion? Take a walk with me...
God is where we are, who we are, all the time. Each of us is God showing up as [place your name here], and this Divine Intelligence continues to flow no matter what is happening in our lives; grief and unemployment or the best day and a big fat checking account.
We are in an Infinite Mind and Infinite Mind is also in us. It is by this Mind that we think. This Mind is eternal, therefore, we are eternal. This Mind is complete, therefore, we are spiritually complete, though we do not appear to be so. ~Science of Mind
Between our body and our soul or essence of our Being...there is no in-between. There is no duality between our bodily and spiritual experiences. When we understand that our spiritual identity is one with the Divine, we realize we are never alone. Each of us is filled with the Power, Presence, Love, Joy, Wisdom, and Beauty of the Divine; unique, but at one with all; individual, but indistinguishable. You are a flask, ready to be filled!
Let us take communion seriously.
The most powerful prayer, one well-nigh omnipotent, and the worthiest work of all is the outcome of a quiet mind. The quieter it is the more powerful, the worthier, the deeper, the more telling and more perfect the prayer is. To the quiet mind all things are possible. What is a quiet mind? A quiet mind is one which nothing weighs on, nothing worries, which, free from ties and from all self-seeking, is wholly merged [with] God... Such a one can do no deed however small. ~Meister Eckhart
The quiet mind is a trusting Mind in ourselves as God. When we open our hearts, minds, and souls to receive love, joy, and wisdom we can release any barriers or old stories that we’ve told ourselves. This open and quiet mind allows us to Truly feel that Divine connection to the Divine Intelligence and receive our greatest good.
Some people prefer solitude. They say their peace of mind depends on this. Others say they would be better off in church. If you do well, you do well wherever you are. If you fail, you fail wherever you are. Your surroundings don’t matter. God is with you everywhere — in the market place as well as in seclusion or in the church. If you look for nothing but God, nothing or no one can disturb you. God is not distracted by a multitude of things. Nor can we be. ~ Meister Eckhart
It's like bandwidth with the internet. In the range of frequencies, there is a signal only you can transmit to the Universe. It may sound like mine, look like mine, but it is not – it is like each of us, universal but individualized, shared but unique, and we must widen this bandwidth with the power of conviction, spiritual practice, and love.
Conclusion and Call to Action
God is at home, it’s we who have gone out for a walk. ~Meister Eckhart
To realize God is not just living, but God is Life, is to experience a connection with God. Happiness is a state of mind-wandering. Joy is a state of Being at one with the Presence within. In joy, we heal what is ill or dis-eased.
To realize God is Truth – absolute and ready to serve is to experience a connection with God. When your gut feeling speaks, listen to the inspiration it brings. When you seek inspiration, open your heart and listen.
To experience love and compassion is to experience a connection with God. There is no condition that enough Love will not heal. With fear, love is stunted. The important thing to realize is that Divine Love must be in your own heart and cannot operate from outside of It.
Got unanswered prayers? Remember Life and Truth expresses Itself through each of us. Practice love every day; watch your thoughts, your tongue, your deeds, and your prayers so that nothing contrary to love finds expression there.
When you clearly realize that this is an intelligent universe run in principle, you experience your connection with God. Spirit has no limitation, and is infinite, all-knowing, timeless, boundless, unconditional with Its love, the Source, and Substance of Creative, manifesting our beliefs without exceptions. It does not change its stripes
When we realize God is a soul Spirit, we experience our connection with God. You are Spirit. Spirit cannot die. Your true self was never born and will never die. You are eternal, divine, unchanging Spirit in your true nature.
All we humans are doing is allowing God to “complete the circuit” within us—until we both see from the same perspective. ~Richard Rohr, "Immortal Diamond: The Search For Our True Self"
When you feel out of it, it's like looking out at the street through a window made of fluted glass; it is a distortion made crooked by your perception, a false vision causing us to know ourselves through an illusion.
This is the Truth:
The eye with which I see God is the same with which God sees me. My eye and God's eye is one eye, and one sight, and one knowledge, and one love. ~Meister Eckhart
If some responsibility or task seems too great for you...
- Relax and Surrender to Life
- Remain in the Now
- Commune with Divine Energy, the Universal Flow
- Radiate with an open heart
- Cut through the noise to clarity by communing with Source in a spiritual practice
- Realize that you are one with God and the task will become “our business” instead of “my business”
- Laugh, howl, be a warrior to your open heart and liberated spirit
When you speak to yourself, you speak to God - that is taking communion. Best to do so intentionally.
I Am mindful of how magnificent I Am.
I Am mindful of the gratitude I have.
I Am mindful of the faith and ease which dominates my thinking and the deep feelings with which I back my desires.
I Am mindful of the Power that is within me and the Love that surrounds me.
With this mindfulness, I lead a life of health, prosperity, creativity, love, peace, and honor. In the vast infinity of Life, perfection, wholeness, and completeness reign supreme, and today I continue to be mindful of my part in It all.
