Thank you for the abundance

that is mine

My soul knows you are evermore nigh

{Take time to abide in this Presence of God right where you are}

 In Truth

Seek ye first the kingdom of God,

and his righteousness:

and all these things shall be added unto you.

Matthew 6:33

Feeling the Power & Presence of this Kingdom

allow the significance of focusing your eyes upon God alone

to fill your soul.

In Practice

Journal how it feels to have your home within this Kingdom.

Do you see how there are many mansions here but no servants?

Dig Deeper

No servants because we are all One with the One.

Only personal responsibility.

Only the increasing,

expanding

AWARENESS

of

God

as

the

SOURCE

of

ALL

.

My Story

Before stepping foot into

“the world”

I consciously make my connection with

“THE KINGDOM”

With

God

.

It is as much a part of me as my daily meditation is.

I encourage you to do the same.

Before your feet touch the ground by your bedside,

connect with God

and

watch

the

glory

of

your

day

unfold

.

You’ll

be

entering

into

the

mansions

untold
!

Godspeed

Grateful,

beyond words

for this Grace that is mine.

Grateful,

beyond words

for this ever increasing awareness of the Divine.

Walking within this kingdom

every moment of the Day.

Needing only to  remember

the One Power &  Presence at play.

Grace

my

sufficiency.

So full of

God’s

Glory

This is my desire for you.

To rest in this place of Grace

wherein

sufficiency

is

known

Beloved One.

The

One

Power.

The

One

Presence.

The

Thank you

Beloved

One

for this

Power & Presence that you alone are.

Thank you for this awareness

this

consciousness

that is

ever expanding in my soul.

That leads me

from all illusion

To the conclusion

that All that is needed

is

to

rest

in

thee

!

This is so,

Souljourner,

&

so

it is

*

In Truth

“Your Truth”

is what  I invite you to reflect upon today.

Each One of us sees, feels, the Power &  Presence of God

in our own unique way.

We are, after all, individualized expressions of the One.

Each One

with an insight

{ with Truth}

that is needed in this world today.

It is your calling to SEE this Godness within you

because this is your Divine purpose for BEing here now.

How can God express but through each of our individualized souls?

Yes, the beauty of God is seen throughout nature,

{explicitly}

!

May

our natures

be as clear a reflection of that beauty

&

 majesty that nature is.

The only way that this can transpire, however,

is when  we empty ourselves of the false ego

&

 embrace the Power.

The presence.

Within.

It is time

for you to take responsibility

To

Embrace

YOUR

TRUTH

.

Embrace

YOUR
PURPOSE

.

Through Oneness.

In

Grace

{Take these thoughts into meditation. Become AWARE of your Truth of BEing}

*

In Practice

We see the perfect orchestration of nature as we watch the sun rise every morning

view it in the high sky at noon

&

follow

it’s setting upon the farthest horizon.

Our free will has blocked us from accepting this Divine orchestration

 within our individualized lives.

Each element in nature serves a divine purpose.

So do we.

Our lives are so intricately interwoven,

so

delicately refined,

yet

we brutally attach this nature in others and in ourselves.

Relying upon what the mind knows.

Not what the Divine knows.

We need to come back

to

Eden

We need to rest

in our individualized Truths

which

ALL

work

together

for

GOOD

For

God

*

We need to listen to the call.

We need to accept responsibility

and create the perfect world order that is intended.

It is up to no one but ourselves.

Look within.

Become

best

friends

with

this

Perfect

Power

&

Presence

whose

only

desire

is for you to glorify this planet with

 Grace

*

Journal about your Truth.

Listen to what you already know.

Your call  has been calling you infinitely.

It will continue to call

until

you

answer

.

Until you do what you know you are here to do.

Be one with God, Souljourner.

It is such an honorable  place to abide.

It is full of such wonder.

My Story

During this past year I experienced being

“True to thine own self”

as

never

before.

For the past year &  a half, I had joyfully been studying to become a Practitioner of Prayer: a spiritual counselor.

I could see myself , I could feel myself serving in this capacity.

I found great joy studying, probing, writing, learning , sharing my passion for Spirit.

In one day, that all changed.

I was invited to stand firm to my Truth.

In that moment, my choice to feel the Omnipresence within me, to listen to the Omniscience  speaking through me,

and to assert the Omnipotence supporting me

changed my life

placing me firmly upon the  path  that was chosen for me from the beginning of time.

LISTEN

Souljourner

to

your

Soul.

BE come

as a child,

let go of all that you have been led to believe about  duality.

There is not God &  Something else.

Whether that  something else  is illness, loneliness,  lack.

There is ONLY God.

When you turn away from the illusion of anything that is not as God is,

and place your focus upon God alone,

you will see the miraculous.

You will witness what life looks like when you allow God to ordain what is to Be.

You are part of this intricate universe.

You have much work to do but you cannot answer the call from the ego self.

You can only do what is intended

when you are

guided.

guarded.

governed.

by

the

One

!

Godspeed

and

it is in

this

ONE

that

I

put all my trust.

It is in this One

that

I

rest

knowing

that as I have allowed my limited self  to transcend into my true self

I am about my Fathers business

&

ALL

is

WELL

.

All

is

well with my soul

I live my Truth

God’s Truth individualized as me

&

so

it

is

.

Day Fourteen

 Image

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

*

{ Thoughts from  Ralph Waldo  Trine are quoted throughout this story}

Are

Spiritual Practice

One

Presence.

One

Power.

One

Substance.

One

Source.

One

God

&

I

am

One

with

this

One

.

I take a few moments to breathe in this Truth.

I am One.

Not two

but

one

with

this

almighty

One.

Where

I

Am

,

God

is.

Right here.

Right

now.

The Power & Presence of God is in around and through me.

This Power & Presence is not mine alone,

No.  This Power & Presence is the Truth of Being of every human being on this planet.

If I am One with the Father

{and I am}

&

each and  every one is One with the Father

{ and they are }

this

means

WE

 are

all

O N E

!

{ Meditate upon this Oneness with All } 

I celebrate

this Oneness with God.

I celebrate the beauty and majesty found within each one on this planet.

There is no-thing to  separate  me from  my fellow man.

We are all as originally created.

Divine.

I

choose

to

see

this

divinity

in each one.

There is no-thing other than this.

This is where peace is found.

Not for me alone

but

For the world.

It is so

&

so it is

.

In Truth

“Every time that we consciously remember that the only life there is on earth is the life of God,

we are helping to allay fear, we are helping to restore the peace that passes understanding'”

Joel Goldsmith

Feel this incredible Oneness with each one on this planet & beyond if you choose.

If your desire is to increase this awareness,

ask

.

You

shall

receive

.

In Practice

Are you recognizing the impact that your choice to live in Grace is making upon the world?

Do recognize this.

As you abide in the Kingdom of Grace,

you are filled with  all of God’s qualities:

peace.

wisdom.

power.

love.

strength.

These qualities come forth through you  as radiantly as morning sunbeams.

The young mother in Syria crying out to God, feels this recognition that it is your Soul.

She is comforted by this pure awareness.

This conscious Oneness that you have sanctified with God.

You are healing the world,  Souljourner,

as you make this choice to live in  Grace.

You are that instrument of peace.

You offer music to the souls of others by allowing God’s melody to be played through you.

Consider this Truth.

Take Responsibility.

Make the choice to live in Grace.

My Story

Oneness with God was a Truth that I was able to embody without a lot of thought.

Oneness with my fellow man did not resonate as deeply.

Yes, I could see the God in each one but there was still a separation between us.

An example:

Last year a dear teacher of mine was making her transition into the next glorious state.

One of my dearest friends, who grew up Hindu, said,

“think of all the people in the hospital that are being touched by our prayers for Rev. Cay”

{ think  I  did }

because  I truly had not thought of that before.

Penny sees Oneness like no one else I know.

We have talked about it  often and  have wondered if it is  because she did not grow up with thoughts of duality that are found within  our religious culture.

I love that Penny  sees  what God desires us to see without effort.

I love that Penny KNOWS that we truly are all One with the One

and

as

we

pray

for

one

we

pray

for

all.

THERE IS NO SEPARATION

!

I

love

this

&

invite you to look into this Truth a bit deeper, too.

Godspeed

Thank you Beloved One for this perfect Universe that is ours.

Thank you for the awareness that I have that the Truth of Being for each one of us is

to abide in Grace.

I love knowing that this Grace is not mine alone.

I love knowing that the world is being touch by this peace that I abide within .

I give thanks for Being this divine vessel that I am.

Purposely

Glorifying

You

&

so

it

is

.

P.S.

I give thanks for Penny,  too.

Spiritual Truth

“Spiritual status  has never been touched by experience”

Ernest Holmes

Still enveloped within the Truth of your Original Divine Nature,

what does this statement say to you?

Does this mean you “have permission” to let go of those experiences?

Are you willing to do that?

Are you willing to be free of those false perceptions?

Those judgments?

Once

&

for

all

?

If you take this thought into meditation, you are offering yourself the  most magnificent gift of freedom  that has ever been known.

Go there now

.

In Practice

The exploration of this insight will change your life.

When you “really get” the fact that there is NO-thing that has ever touched  your divine nature

you have unleashed the Truth that will set you free.

You have no  past to cling to.

You have no one to blame anymore.

Not even yourself.

All you have is the Truth

that

YOU

are

just

as

God

created

YOU

!

Perfect

Whole

&

Complete

.

Nothing to fix.

Nothing to change.

YOU ARE

THAT
EXPRESSION
OF
GOD
JUST
WAITING
TO
RUN
FREE
!
RUN

FREE
SOULJOURNER

NOW

as you journal.

as you live your life.

My Story

When I read those words by Ernest Holmes there was a click in every fiber of my being.

In the kingdom.

Where God invites us to live

now,

I

AM

as

God

created

me.

In the Kingdom,

where God invites us to live,

there is NO-thing that has ever touched my divine nature.

Do you hear that????

NO-THING!

No Person

 {who was doing the best they could but just couldn’t do it in a manner that would nurture you}

No Thing!

Knowing this,

this  vessel has been emptied of all that is other than God and God qualities

and

this

vessel

is

filled

instead

with

only

my

ORIGINAL DIVINE NATURE

..

WoW

!!

!

Embrace this, Souljouner.

Spend time wrapping yourself around the significance of this Truth.

YOU ARE FREE

!

Accept

your

Glory

!

Accept

your

Grace

now

!

Godspeed

My heart sings with joy as I receive the depth of this Truth.

Thank you , O’ God, for this magnificent  expression you have created.

 and called by name.

Thank you for opening my eyes to see that  it is this original divine nature that  I am.

NO-thing has ever touched this expression in your kingdom and it is in your kingdom I abide.

I do not have to change anything about me.

I simply have to abide in you and allow your presence power and wisdom to guide me each step of this day.

I love abiding with you.

I love  resting  in this sufficiency

This is Grace.

I love this place.

I love you

Each one of you

&

so

it

Day Eleven

more reflection

As you look into your eyes today,

what do you see?

Do you see the Truth?

Do illusions remain?

Take no thought.

Listen to the call!

Empty the stagnant vessel,

Souljourner

!

Fill

this

vessel

with

Grace

Spiritual Practice

O’ Holy One.

I come to you today

with a heart filled with desire

to
BE

you

intended me to

Be

To

To

BE

your refection of Grace

.

To be free of my limited site

&

 to see beauty & grace,

your site.

your vision for me.

I

let go

of

doubts

.

I let go of beliefs that have been ingrained within me

knowing that just because they have been there for  o’ so long,

they are not my Master.

You alone

} the One Power & Presence {

are

the only Master I serve

.

I

allow your voice to be heard through me

.

I

consciously look into these eyes to see who I am

.

I see your qualities.

I see your nature.

I see you in me.

My heart  & Soul are free

.

I

rest

in

Thee

.

{Resting in this Power & Presence, now, Souljourner. You are home}

With

a

grateful

heart

I thank you for this awareness of my Truth.

I thank you for this expression of the Divine that you have created me to Be.

I honor this expression.

I vow to display your glory as you have chosen me to do.

En+Joy

En +Grace

In + Finitely

!

Be it so.

&

So it is.

Spiritual Truth

“Siddhartha had one single goal – to become empty, to become empty of thirst, desire, dreams, pleasure and sorrow – to let the Self die.  No longer to be Self, to experience the peace of an emptied heart, to experience pure thought  {GOD} that was his goal.”

Siddhartha

 Herman Hesse

Take this goal into meditation.

Empty your vessel of all that is known.

Invite this vessel to be filled with the voice,

the Spirit of God alone.

Herein, Grace lies.

In Practice

Knowing that your heart remains filled with this peace & understanding that comes from

God alone,

journal about this experience.

About this Oneness.

About this Presence that is your Truth of BEing.

Deeper Still

Go to the mirror.

Look in your eyes.

Speak your Truth to the One that holds the key to all.

BE

ONE

with

this

ONE

.

My Story

Looking into the mirror was not always a pleasant experience for me.

I recall looking into the mirror and saying very harsh words to myself.

I recall looking into the mirror with a loathing in my eyes

toward that beautiful face of God that was looking back at me.

A face that I did not. Could not see.

As I said yesterday, I am realizing the mirror for the fractal that it is in my life;

honoring the immersion of the True Self

&

the journey.

It would be easy for me to skip over this part of my story but then how authentic would my story be?

I know it is not my Truth.

I know that I was doing the very best I could with where I was on my path to God,

my path to Grace,

and all I can do is honor that.

I feel empathy for anyone still experiencing this separation from God

and hope that by bearing my soul,

theirs may be encouraged upon the journey.

Godspeed

I am so thankful for these realizations of Truth that are mine.

I know who I Am.

I know there is no-thing that can separate me from this Truth accept for my limited vision.

I choose to see clearly.

I choose to look into these eyes directly.

To see their glory.

To see their Grace.

To Be all that I am here to be.

With thanksgiving & joy in my heart.

I say.

& so it is.

Thank you, Beloved One,

for this joy,

this peace,

that

I

Beloved

ONE

I

accept your call

to allow this Divinity to Be expressed

through

me

.

I

realize

that

your

expression can only be made upon earth

through each One

you

have

created

!

All

feelings

of inadequacy,

of confusion,

of powerlessness,

fade

away

in

this

Truth

.

Joyfully,

I

resolve

to glorify you

through

this

expression

that

I

Am

.

I

let go of my limited vision.

I

listen to your infinite plan

for

me

.

I

follow

&

so

it

is

.

Spiritual Truth

“In all thy ways acknowledge Him, and He shall direct thy paths”

Proverbs 3:6

God is directing your path right now.

There is no other Truth than this.

It is your personal responsibility to accept this direction.

This communication with God.

Listen

Now

.

In Practice

 Letting go of “this world”,

{the limits of the  mind and body}

journeying into the Soul,

the

Kingdom,

is not an overnight process.

We will be spending the next few days looking into the

Mirror of the Soul

Today’s meditation allows you the opportunity to look even closer into those eyes,

to see who it is directing your path.

Digging Deeper

 You are stepping into unexplored territory, Souljourner.

Do not discredit the importance of this searching.

Do not discredit the call that you hear from that still voice within you.

This is God calling.

This is the answer to all that you have been seeking.

Take this time for the Divine.

Know God.

Aright.

My Story

Have you noticed the fractals of your life?

Those naturally embedded patterns: original divine impressions,  that repeat over & again?

Since we have begun this souljourning together,

more and more fractals are becoming apparent to me.

Today’s insight came when I typed,

“Mirror to the Soul”

Back in the late 90’s I designed and created mirrors with affirmations written upon them;

they were called,

Mirrors to the Soul

{I will try to dig one up today & post the picture tomorrow}

That is the point in my life where I began to see the importance of mirror work,

of looking into the eyes of the Beloved

It was only when I recognized my Oneness with God

that my life began to be free from 

feelings of limitation. Feelings of inadequacy. 

This pathway to Oneness did begin with pouring love into those eyes as I looked into the mirror.

You may call this silly.

You may call this by any name you so desire.

This, though, is my story.

And

my

Souls

Journey

to

Grace

included

mirror work

Try it.

You will find yourself talking to your self with the kindest of words.

You will hear yourself saying things like,

“It’s okay, honey, you did the best you could”

or

“Don’t be so hard on yourself.  You are God in expression”

In addition,

You will find yourself letting go of the “things” you did wrong.

{Wrong in your mind anyway}

You will find yourself loving yourself as never before

because you are finally embracing your Truth of Being.

You ARE an expression of the Infinite.

You ARE NO-thing other than this

&

this is everyone else’s Truth, too.

We are ALL exactly the same.

We are ALL {as my beloved Dr. Flo said, “Godlings”}

No one is better than me.

No one is lesser than me.

Everyone IS the same

&

in this Oneness with All

comes

freedom of BEing exactly who you are!!!!

Mirror Work.

Try

it

!

Godspeed

How grateful I am for this expression that I am.

For this Truth of Being that shines forth through me.

Such freedom knowing this Truth.

Such joy BEing One not only with the One

but with each One of my neighbors on this journey as well.

I love mirroring this joy.

This love.

This peace.

found

only

in

You

&

so

it

is

Day Nine

Day Nine

!

We’re

Celebrating the Divine

!!!

In the first week while examining the elements of Grace

 we discovered

there

is

but

ONE

 KEY

!

ONENESS WITH GOD

!

We spoke of the ways in which we separate ourselves from this Oneness.

From this Grace.

Realizing we are but a microcosm

of the macrocosm.

What separates ourselves from ourselves, our fellow man,

separates ourselves from God.

*

In the Spiritual Kingdom

{the intentional residence}

ONENESS

is

all

that

is

known
!

It is my hope that you have tasted the beauty of this Oneness

&

that your hearts desire

{intuited directly from God}

is but to experience more.

You cannot.

You will not.

Experience this Grace without intentional practice.

You may taste the peace on occasion

but

it will

not

be

embedded

within

your

very

soul

unless

you

come

to

know

God

aright

.

Period

.

Answer the infinite call, Souljourner.

We are all here. Now. To experience God.

To experience Grace.

You need not go anywhere.

Where you are

God

is

!

Rest in this Truth of Being

now

.

Spiritual Practice

It is with joy & appreciation

that I look into these

eyes & see

perhaps

for

the

very

first

time

who I truly am.

I

Am

God

in

expression

I

think

move

have

my

Being

in

the

Spiritual

Realm

{as intended}

&

in

this

Edenic

state

NO-thing,

NO

experience

No

person

{including myself}

has

ever

touched

my

original

divine

nature

.

Right

here.

Right

now.

I

Am

as

God

created

me

.

Perfect.

Whole.

Complete.

All God Qualities

are

my

qualities

.

I

Am

One

with

God

&

there

is

NO-

thing

other

than

God

.

I

Am

not

as

the

world

seeth

.

I

Am

heir

to

the

throne

.

but

there is this voice in my head. not in my heart.  asking, how can this be so?

Isn’t this blasphemy?

You, an expression of God?

Come on.

How can this be?

but

this is so,

Souljourner

&

your

Soul

knows

*

Begin now,

using the illustration as a visualization,

look into this mirror,

look into those eyes.

See what God sees.

See,

feel,

who

you

really

are

.

With

those

eyes

you

see

the eternal Kingdom of God.

You

see

this Kingdom is in, around and through you right now.

Always has been.

Always will be.

In this awareness.

In this consciousness.

This conscious union with God,

you feel the Presence of God.

You breathe into this Presence.

You are that which God is.

You rest here now.

{Take this opportunity to know the Truth for yourself.  This is between you & God. No one else}

Thank you.

O’ lover of my soul,

for this Oneness that

I AM.

Thank you for this increasing awareness of the Truth of my soul.

Thank you for opening my eyes to the beauty,

the infinite beauty that

I

Am.

I can be no-thing other than this

for

I

Am

your

expression.

That

is

ALL

that

I

Am.

I

allow the appearances of separation

to

fall

from

me.

I

embrace

my

ONENESS

with

thee

.

I

Am

in

Heaven

.

Now

.

&

so

it

is

.

Spiritual Truth

“I have overcome the world”

John 16:33

Take this thought into meditation.

Ask for greater  awareness of the meaning of “this world”

Remember, the more you expect to receive,

the more you will be given.

Spiritual Practice

Sensing this Spiritual Realm,

the reoccurring theme in all religions,

is this realm appearing differently to you?

Do you see that the veil is thin?

Do you feel this Godness: this Goodness here? Now?

Is there Heaven on Earth?

How does this change your view of daily living?

How does this change your view of appearances other than those originally created?

Are they mesmeric?

Digging Deeper

If there is a world behind this world, is there a Paula behind this Paula and is this my original divine nature?

Is this God expressing as Paula?

Is this the I Am?

My Story

Mirror work was essential to healing my separation from God.

I looked into my eyes.

Intently.

Purposely.

Seeking the Truth

of

who

I

Am.

The more I looked into my eyes,

the more I saw my soul.

The more I saw my goodness.

The more I saw God.

Until one day,

when I looked into my eyes,

all that I saw

was

God

reflected

as

me.

This, Souljourner, is my prayer for you.

This Oneness is glory known.

Your holy dominion.

The I Am that You Are!

There is NO-thing unsacred about this.

There is NO-thing to judge.

God IS

in

around

&

through

everything

everyone.

We

ARE

ONE

WITH
GOD

!!!

Celebrating this Truth

Godspeed

I am so thankful for your voice that speaks so eloquently dear God.

May each heart reading these words, recognize that they come from the Source of All.

The Source of Beauty, the Source of Love, the Source of Light.

You

dear

God

&

You

Alone.

May each one see that it is your desire for us to live on earth as intended.

To live in a holy place each moment of the day.

Loving our neighbors as ourselves.

For we are all one with you.

In this Spirit of Oneness, my soul desire is to glorify you.

 Alone.

&

so it is.

Day Eight

Souljourner,

Let’s make Saturday’s

Storytelling

Day

!

Here is Mine.

Welcoming Yours.

*

I will preface my story by saying that I know I have invited you to

explore  places in meditation that you may have never been before.

Let’s call these places – higher places.

Places that lead to a heightened awareness of God.

but

as

Alia Joy

{isn’t that a beautiful name}

reminds me through the title of her blog:

http://narrowpathstohigherplaces.wordpress.com

{You’ll want to visit. See the glory of God she displays}

 the path to these higher places

to this heightened awareness

is narrow.

Narrow

not because of God:

the Unlimited One,

the Universal One,

the Boundless One,

but

Narrow

when  I make a choice

to walk this path

alone

without

 purposely

connecting to the

One Power

One Presence

One Intelligence

that is

all-ways

within

me.

Narrow

because

my

vision

must

be

focused

upon

God

alone

to

reach

the

higher ground

!

To reach

infinite

heights

in

consciousness

!

To

reach

To

abide

in

the

Kingdom

of

Grace

!

This is where I am inviting you to go,

Souljourner.

To this blessed place.

This blessed space.

This higher ground.

Where things of this world do grow strangely dim

in the light of His Glory & Grace

!!!

If you are wondering how you can abide in this Kingdom of Grace

as you go to work each day,

as you consider the bills to pay,

let me remind you that

YOU ARE NOT ALONE

Within

You

Is

Your

Sufficiency

} Grace {

This

dependence

upon

God

is

what

I

invite

you

to

explore

!

Your Oneness With

the

Omnipresence.

Omniscience.

Omnipotence.

of

God

*

Your Oneness with God is what  Sustaineth All

*

Now

to

the

storytelling

!

I love God with all my heart and all my soul.

As a child of eleven,

these were my same sentiments.

 I saw God

as

my

sufficiency

My

vision

was

upon

God

alone

I

trusted

God

completely

My world was found. Formed.  In this higher place!

{ As indicated in the photo, in the Psalms, I chose for my testimony}

Interestingly,

that was the last testimony in my Bible.

At eleven my view of God changed.

Dramatically

Drastically

Why

?

Life

&

Loss

*

No longer did I feel Oneness with God.

No longer did I feel complete Trust.

A cloud of judgement was the raiment I wore.

I was but a child

but I knew what I was experiencing was not of God.

I was lost in these heretofore known feelings of separation.

Of duality.

My path was not known.

I was no longer exalted in height

I truly did not know how to live in a world without Faith.

Without Trust.

Without God.

My heart yearned for at-One-ment

&

this yearning led me upon many paths.

None of which fulfilled my divine nature.

None of which led upward.

All of which fed my separation.

My loneliness

My angst

*

Beneath the desperation.

 The Depression.

there was always the still, calm, voice calling me home.

I heard it,

but I didn’t trust it.

I desired it,

but I didn’t deserve it.

The Prodigal Child’s

heartfelt

desire

was

ALL-WAYS

to

come

home

*

But how

?

What I saw in the world that represented God was what separated me from God years ago.

These were not my beliefs.

This was not my path.

My world

grew

narrower

&

narrower

not

leading

me

upward

but

spiraling

me

downward

into

 a

tail

spin

*

Tales of this tail spin will be told next Saturday

but for today

please

know

Souljourner

that

the

return

home

is

an

amazing

journey

&

upon

the

return

the

beliefs that were yours in the beginning

in childhood

will

not

only

rings true

but

be

embedded

in

your

heart

as

you

go

forward

to

this

higher

place

This

heightened

awareness

of

God

of

Grace

*

Thank you for allowing me to share this journey with you.

This last week has been a tremendous gift to me.

En+Joy

All-Ways
