It’s Saturday again.

Let the storytelling begin!

Coming full Circle

{Tail Spin Tales}

Preserve me, O God: for in thee do I put my trust.

The Lord is the portion of mine inheritance and my cup: thou maintainest my lot.

The lines are fallen unto me in pleasant places; yea, I have a goodly heritage.

{GRACE}

I will bless the Lord, who hath given me counsel: my reins also instruct me in the night seasons.

I have set the Lord always before me: because he is at my right hand, I shall not be moved.

Therefore my heart is glad, and my glory rejoiceth: my flesh also shall rest in hope.

Thou wilt shew me the path of life:

in thy presence is fulness of joy;

at thy right hand

there are pleasures for evermore

Psalms 16

*

I am in awe at the depth of these thoughts that spoke to  my heart at age eleven.

No wonder,

I wandered for so long .

There is positively nothing in the world that can replace  this inclusivity of God.

Returning to this

path of life

{GRACE}

where the Presence of the Lord is known,

has brought me fulness of joy

&

pleasures

{infinitely}

forevermore

!

Finding this home in grace came as I began  experiencing God personally,

as I did as a child,

again.

I could not find solace in judgement.

I could not find solace in duality.

In my heart,

the  heart likened to that of a child,

I

knew

my

home

could

only

be

found

in

ONENESS

with

God

.

The relationship with God described in Psalm 16

*

I came home to this relationship when I came home to the God who abides within me.

I came full circle,

soared

victoriously out of the tail spin

when I realized  all sufficiency was right where I am.

Grace

was

found

once

I

“had absolute confidence in the Divine guiding me,

but not through the channel of some one else.”

Grace

was

found

once

I

made the choice

“not to go to another for knowledge and wisdom.”

“Not to seek things second hand.”

Grace

was

found

when

I

made the choice

“to rely upon my own innate powers. “

{God Within}

When

I

chose

to

“go directly to the Infinite Source itself.”

“If any man lack wisdom let him ask of God.”

As Browning  says:

“Truth is within ourselves; it takes no rise

From outward things, whate’er you may believe.

There is an inmost center in us all,

Where truth abides in fullness.”

*

This is Grace.

This is my story.

This is  “answering the call of being true to thine own self.

Thine own soul.

For it is through your own soul that the voice of God speaks to you.

This is the interior guide.

This is the light that lighteth every man that cometh into the world.

This is conscience.

This is intuition.

This is the voice of the higher self, the voice of the soul, the voice of God.”

“Thou shalt hear a voice behind thee, saying: This is the way, walk ye in it.”

This is the voice that brought me home.

Out of the tail spin.

Full circle.

This

is

Grace
