“…be careful how you live; be mindful of your steps. Don’t run around like idiots as the rest of the world does. Instead, walk as the wise!” (Ephesians 5: 15, the Voice Translation)

Mindfulness is so often spoken of these days. It seems that we are being called as a world to be more intentionally thoughtful, reflective, aware. This conscious regard for life and our part in it, so clearly articulated here, was what Jesus was teaching and demonstrating.

We must and can walk as the wise! We don’t have to get caught up in what others are thinking or doing, whether to emulate it, compete with it, or to get disturbed about it. We can be careful in our living, in that we intentionally choose to be what God caused us to be. By doing so, we bring light to the world, and enjoy individual peace and progress as well.

And this wise walking means confidence. It is a conviction and certainty that isn’t arrogance or pride, a feeling that we are better than others. It is that humble and powerful walk as the very presence of Love, as God’s own idea moving through the world, with His purpose in us and under us. This means we can feel focused and yet open and flexible; loving and also strong.

This spiritual mindfulness makes our steps sure and our walk of life pleasant and joyful as well!

stand-firm

“For the ambivalent person believes one minute and doubts the next…You’re up one minute and tossed down the next. When you are half-hearted and wavering it leaves you unstable.” (James 1: 6-8, the Passion Translation)

We often find ourselves seeking stability, a sense of security and safety in our lives. We can feel unsteady and not really know which way to go, what to do, how to do it. We question ourselves, our faith, and others.

This ambivalence may be common and seem justified, but it really isn’t doing us any favors. The very instability we may seem to experience is likely not life so much as our thoughts about it. And we can do something about that. We can refuse to waver, and instead commit. We can select and settle into our seats, to witness the goodness that is going on and is to come.

This isn’t about knowing everything or about a human sense of absolute confidence in every moment. It’s about that full-hearted, unwavering commitment to believe in God more than in circumstances; in eternal Life more than in time and limit. It is to refuse to let each challenge be a cause for giving up, for losing faith and loyalty to our vision.

Stand your ground with God. The challenges are stepping stones to discovery. As we make them occasions to lean more on trustworthy Truth, our foundation becomes even firmer. We feel and appreciate the real freedom and peace that God’s protection and affection naturally bring.

seekgod

“And ye shall seek me, and find me, when ye shall search for me with all your heart. And I will be found of you, saith the Lord:” (Jeremiah 29: 13-14)

God is ready for us to “find” Him. The understanding of Life as it truly is, the fullness of divine Love, the Truth that releases us from fear and pain, is here to be discovered and known.

We may feel that our yearning, our doubts and questions, are a sign that we have no faith or that we just don’t have what it takes to gain a more heavenly perspective. But the seeking is God’s demand set in us. He made us to want to know. God put within us the desire to get to the heart of things, to get at Truth and to feel it fully.

And so, this seeking is natural. And the promise is true. We shall find what we seek. The questions yield answers. Those very questions are a way to gain Truth, just like classroom learning requires working out solutions by asking the right things.

The only condition on this full awareness of God’s presence is that you search with all your heart. It is that we seek with sincerity and with expectation. We turn to God with receptivity and openness. This isn’t about blind faith. It is about coming to God with loving readiness, eagerness, seeking with gratitude and with love.

“Walk with me and work with me—watch how I do it. Learn the unforced rhythms of grace. I won’t lay anything heavy or ill-fitting on you. Keep company with me and you’ll learn to live freely and lightly.” (Matthew 11: 29-30, Message Bible)

Wouldn’t we all love to learn the unforced rhythms of grace? How much more pleasant our lives would be if we were to follow the directions of this healing verse.

And we have here both the instructions and the benefits. As we walk with the Christ, using Jesus as our model and God’s Love as our motive as well, we feel a sense of both progress and peacefulness. Jesus showed us the way through his kindness, his humility, his intention for good. And he showed us how to trust.

For as Jesus relied on his Father for all things—frequently reminding his followers that he could do nothing of himself—so can we do the same. And we have extra help! Because we have this very Christ-Truth to lean on. We have Jesus’s example of the power of humble trust. And we have the Truth remaining ever with us, that abiding awareness that we are one with God and that He loves us without limits, and always.

Let’s keep company with this healing consciousness. Let’s take each step with God and realize how natural this rhythm of life is to us. It is productive and has an impact, and yet there is no weighty burden in it. It is not ill-fitting. It is just us being who we were made to be and living freely and lightly, gracefully and gratefully, in our daily walk with Love.

doorway

“We should become more familiar with good than with evil, and guard against false beliefs as watchfully as we bar our doors against the approach of thieves and murderers.” (Science and Health, page 234)

Our consciousness is precious. It is where our treasures are contained and where all our good experiences begin.

It truly behooves us to protect our thinking and to plant and nurture seeds of goodness there. We can be alert and recognize that when we are ruminating on trouble, thinking critically about others or ourselves, dwelling in fear or in anger, we have made our home, our dwelling place, something unkind and uncomfortable. This isn’t a place where we can flourish or find peace.

Let’s realize that the dark images of evil and danger, of disease and demise, may knock at our door, but we don’t have to let them in. While being careful and thoughtful about things can be good, to spend our time with the criminal beliefs that can rough up our house, our serenity and poise and clarity, is not wisdom. We are better occupied by actively, intentionally, becoming more acquainted with good, with that which is powerful, healing, and true.

This is being watchful with God, with Love, with intelligence. It is not living in paranoia, but instead being ready to invite in beauty, joy, light, and vibrant life!

“…I am with you every day, even unto the end of time.” (Matthew 28: 20, Aramaic Bible in Plain English)

Jesus uttered this comforting promise to his apostles after his resurrection. While his physical appearance with them would end, his spiritual presence would remain.

This Christ, the living Truth of God and man, could not be killed. It was the everlasting, vital state of being which Jesus demonstrated through his life, his teaching, and his healing. This Truth had been revealed and it could never be hidden again.

I love that this timeless, ageless assurance is meant for all of us. This Comforter, the Christ-reality, walks with us each and every day. We take no step that we don’t have immediate access to this guidance, this wisdom, this inspiration from above, coming to us just as we need it in a way that we can appreciate.

Let’s remember and rejoice that the resurrection proved that no material sense of limits—time, space, physicality—can keep God, good, Truth, from its saving activity. The heaven of the Christ’s gentle and powerful presence is with us here and now, every moment, day and night, until the end of time.

Happiness-and-Joy

“…your joy no man taketh from you.” (John 16: 22)

We have a right to joy. In fact, this true happiness is a built-in aspect of our being. It is a quality that is inherent in us and which has its Source in God, the Infinite One.

Jesus knew this. He was assuring his disciples that while they might feel confronted with fear and trouble, confusion and doubt, their joy could not be lost. No person, by his behavior towards us or by his beliefs about us, can rob us of that inner consciousness of divine peace and satisfaction, that uplifted awareness of true life and light.

We can choose to give up our joy because of others or by our own depressing thoughts towards ourselves. But this joy, your joy, is ever available for God is always with you. His Love and His cheer, His Truth that reveals reality, is yours forever.

We always have access to this happiness. It isn’t contingent on people and things, circumstances or even our own personal efforts at optimism. This joy is God’s precious affection pouring in, His smile that is always upon us, calling us to laugh, to be glad, to awaken to our true lovely, lovable, and joy-filled selves today!

leader

“…do everything you can to present yourself to God as a man who is fully genuine, a worker unashamed of your mission, a guide capable of leading others along the correct path defined by the word of truth.” (II Timothy 2: 15, Voice Translation)

You are a leader. Don’t think otherwise. As you’ve been awakened to God’s goodness, His Truth, His healing Word to you, this makes you a vital force in the world.

God has endowed you with His qualities and the awareness of them. Don’t be shy about utilizing your gifts—His gifts to you—by helping others, leading with words and deeds. And let go of any reason to hide or be ashamed because you are a believer in Truth. It is an honor to have a mission with the purpose that is truly and always Love.

Take hold of your divine purpose, without apology, limiting conditions, or justifications. Do everything you can to be true to that inherent calling. For to live as God’s own representative is not to be arrogant or judgmental or full of pride and human intellectualism. It is to be fully genuine. It is to be sincere. It is to humbly recognize that the very Source of all that we are and all that we do, is God. His wisdom shines through us and His mission is one that He has given us, along with all that is needed to humbly, gratefully, capably carry it out.

“Steep your life in God-reality, God-initiative, God-provisions. Don’t worry about missing out. You’ll find all your everyday human concerns will be met.” (Matthew 6: 33, Message Bible)

What would it feel like to heed this inspired advice? What a glorious feeling to truly immerse ourselves in the divine! How healing it would be to allow ourselves to linger there and to let God’s goodness cleanse, purify, saturate our thought and infuse our lives!

We can make a conscious choice to let the worries go. We can relinquish that sense we will miss out on something good, or not get everything “necessary” accomplished, or that we will disappoint someone. Steeping ourselves in the reality of God and His provision and purpose isn’t putting our heads in the sand. Rather, it lifts our perspective above the confusion and concern and shows us Truth.

That basking in God’s reality refreshes us, provides us with clarity, inspiration, and guidance. And when we do this, we find that our practical needs are met. God is caring for us always, and His control and abundance are present and active. As we focus on God and not on limits, ego, and matter, we see His limitless goodness, wisdom, and Love right where we are, in just the right way to save and to satisfy.

“God expresses in man the infinite idea forever developing itself, broadening and rising higher and higher from a boundless basis.” (Science and Health, page 258)

Let’s take the limits off ourselves and off of God! The Creator and Source of all is infinite. Spirit has no end and there are no material conditions on its expression. God’s nature simply continues to flow forth, without pause or decline. He is always radiating His Life and Love, His Truth and power. We are the evidence of this endless gloriousness.

Let’s realize who we are and what that means for our lives. For God is filling all space and all time with His qualities, and we are constantly becoming acquainted with what this means. We are ideas who are developing, in that we are expanding in understanding, in wisdom, in clarity. This development goes on eternally, for God never ceases to have colors to be seen and aspects of His goodness to be experienced.

We are forever ascending, gaining an enlightened and heightened view of God and of His idea, the man and woman that He created. So, let’s stop seeing ourselves as waning in life, energy, prospects. Let’s instead insist on knowing ourselves truly and being ready for what’s new and next, vital and progressive!

“God has given us his Spirit. That’s why we don’t think the same way that the people of this world think. That’s also why we can recognize the blessings that God has given us.” (I Corinthians 2: 12, Contemporary English Version)

We can go along and listen to the world and so feel pressed to change our approach to things, even our own inner convictions, based on what we see going on around us. We can follow the material experience, with its motives based on fear and lack and self-preservation.

But God had given us a higher perception, a better vision, a clearer way to think and to be. His own Spirit is within us, and this gives us more than physical sight. It provides insight, inspiration, and wisdom. It is that voice of Truth that God built into us and it is what sets us free.

This true awareness is our liberation from buying what the world is selling. It is being awake to what is truly going on, to God’s creation, to His overflowing blessings, and to the unity of Love that binds us all together in one grand glory. God’s Spirit, that spiritual sense, defies the limited material senses by its limitless perspective.

You may feel like you don’t fit into the world, but you do fit into God’s design and it is a blessed one, wherein we also naturally bring blessings, healing, goodness to a world that is ready to awake and to see what we see as well!

“…the wisdom that comes from above leads us to be pure, friendly, gentle, sensible, kind, helpful, genuine, and sincere. When peacemakers plant seeds of peace, they will harvest justice.” (James 3: 17-18, Contemporary English Version)

If we are to truly be peacemakers, not merely those seeking comfortable lives for ourselves, then we can’t go it alone. To be active participants in the world in a way that is healing and progressive and good, we must rely on something greater than our own ingenuity, wits, and will.

We need to listen for God’s wisdom. We must open our hearts, ready to receive the guidance that divine Love reveals to us. This true intelligence is not only smart thinking. It is power, for it proceeds from Love, from Truth, from the very Source of Life. This higher wisdom leads us to be our best, to be who we truly are, and this has a harmonizing influence in our world.

Purity, friendliness, gentleness, sincerity, helpfulness, etc., are qualities that come from an honest desire and from selflessness. When we come with God’s intention, rather than personal goals and fears and biases, the work we do plants seeds that can grow, that can bring out not only a better experience for ourselves, but a foundation of justice and peace for our world as well.

courage

“At the very moment I called out to you, you answered me! You strengthened me deep within my soul and breathed fresh courage into me.” (Psalms 138: 3, the Passion Translation)

God’s responses are quick, but never cursory or shallow. Our earnest and receptive pleas to our Father-Mother are met with answers that are assuring and guiding. And they are deep. They feed our hearts within. They regenerate us.

We can listen not only with our ears and our minds, but with our souls, as the psalmist did. We can lean into God with an expectation of grace. That “fresh courage” is found as we allow it in, as we willingly give up the need to do it ourselves, to repair problems, to resolve everything, to control.

And so, we gain in this release of human power, divine strength. This true energy is not some willful pushing or mere bravado in the face of danger. It is, instead, a real feeling of confidence. We have heard and felt God’s presence, His clarity and generosity, and we know this means safety, wisdom, freedom, power, and grateful joy.

“The depth, breadth, height, might, majesty, and glory of infinite Love fill all space. That is enough!” (Science and Health, page 520)

Realize, relish, and release yourself to this wonderful declaration! Divine Love is filling all space. Love is what is going on and what has power. Love is the real substance of the universe, the essence and energy of Life.

No, it doesn’t look that way. Our material eyes and our personal sense of things seem to witness things that are very unloving or limiting. So, we find ourselves in complaint, fear, apathy, and argument. Often, we will try to reason our way to feeling better or acting nicer or having more hope or joy.

But let’s set aside all that confusing and complex and unreliable judging and ruminating for the gift of calm assurance. In Truth, Love’s depth and expansiveness, gloriousness and mightiness, are what constitute Life. Our Life. Love is at the heart of us and it is at hand to empower us and to comfort us. This Love is also embracing all, uniting us in the conscious Truth that we are all made of Love and One in this spiritual affection.

That is enough! This powerful awareness is surely sufficient to silence the worry and to open our minds and hearts to the true beauty and glory of Love’s creation, right here and now.

Cathedral-Basilica_HR_NKYCVB

“Lord, I love your home, this shrine where the brilliant, dazzling splendor of your presence lives.” (Psalms 26: 8, the Living Bible)

What is this home that this verse speaks of? It can mean many things, but this description certainly evokes a sense of awe. We can envision this palace of God’s presence as one that is filled with wonderful things beyond compare.

This infinite space of God’s goodness is a shrine, one wherein we can truly honor and worship, lovingly revere and obey the Divine, the Holy Creator, the very Source of Life. This magnificent place is a cathedral that echoes with promise and songs of praise. It is a transcendent experience of holy connection and inspiration.

And this ultimate glory is also and truly a home. It is that abiding place for all God’s ideas, His children. It is Love. This is a dwelling where we are at once stimulated by the wonderful ideas God has created and shared just for us, and at the same time comforted, peaceful. We feel accepted, confident, serene, safe. It is quiet and intimate and hidden from the world and its judgments and fears.

Let’s rejoice that we are in this brilliant place right now. Settle in and enjoy the splendor and the serenity of your home with God.

greenpastures

“You, Lord, are my shepherd. I will never be in need. You let me rest in fields of green grass. You lead me to streams of peaceful water, and you refresh my life.” (Psalms 23: 1-3, Contemporary English Version)

This age-old metaphor of shepherd and sheep continues to bring comfort. We can imagine the guiding, watching caretaker keeping his flock nurtured, safe from danger, playful as well as peaceful.

And the sheep also expresses such beautiful qualities. Innocence. Trust. Obedience. Just sheer lovableness! The little lambs follow the one who knows what is best for them, what is right. They obey the guide who knows exactly where the peaceful waters are, and the fresh green fields.

We sometimes fight this whole idea. Being a sheep can suggest blindly following no matter what, going where everyone else goes, without a mind of one’s own. But with the Lord as our Shepherd, we are not ignorantly being ushered about. Our Shepherd knows better than we do, and we know this! It is our own conscious awareness of what this reliance means that allows us to be led, willingly, by the One Who Loves Us.

And this is not weak submissiveness. It is release. It is a joyous surrender to be led to the plushest meadows and to those waters that are reviving, renewing, refreshing. Our Shepherd, God, never loses His way, or loses one of His sheep. All our needs are met. Knowing this we not only can feed and feel secure, but we can also freely frolic in Life’s inviting and fragrant pastures!

praise-2

“…and I praise you because of the wonderful way you created me. Everything you do is marvelous! Of this I have no doubt.” (Psalms 139: 14, Contemporary English Version)

Here is true confidence. And you have a right to it. You can accept and experience that true sense of certainty in yourself as you consciously recognize your Source.

This brings a rightful sense of power, without force or arrogance. It is yielding to the fact of God and His creation. He formed you wonderfully, to express His own qualities in a way that He intentionally conceived. And God Himself is the Spirit that carries out the marvelous life that is yours to live. He created you to give active evidence to His goodness, righteousness, and beauty.

We can be confident always because we are not self-created or self-maintained. Our success does not come through willfulness, but by our humble acceptance of who God made us to be.

holycalling

“He delivered us and saved us and called us with a holy calling [a calling that leads to a consecrated life—a life set apart—a life of purpose], not because of our works [or because of any personal merit—we could do nothing to earn this], but because of His own purpose and grace [His amazing, undeserved favor] which was granted to us in Christ Jesus before the world began [eternal ages ago]…” (II Timothy 1: 9, Amplified Bible)

You have always had a holy purpose. God has a divine intention for you and the way in which you actively express His qualities, His Life, His Love.

We are uniquely blessed by our calling. We may feel that we don’t know what we are doing or exactly what will give our lives meaning, our hearts joy and contentment. But God does know us and what we can do, what best serves His design, the one which He has known forever, and which can’t be lost.

The fact that you may yearn to truly know what will make your life both sing and be impactful, is already a sign that God has made you with a very certain plan for which you are absolutely ready. And this, not because you have accomplished human things or proved yourself in some arbitrary way that society may venerate. It is because of His Love.

God’s amazing grace has made you to fulfill His purpose by being you. This is what the Christ-Truth reveals. We are each formed to bear witness to God in wonderfully singular ways, and there will always be a place prepared for us to express His goodness as only we can do. Your life is set apart, not because it is lonely or difficult, but because it is unlike anyone else’s and prepared especially for the beauty, the glory, that is you!

heartlove

“And I will give you a new heart, and I will put a new spirit in you. I will take out your stony, stubborn heart and give you a tender, responsive heart.” (Ezekiel 36: 26, New Living Translation)

Today we may be thinking about love. Valentine’s Day brings to mind relationships we have, once had, or hope for.

This verse is a refreshing gift that goes beyond flowers, cards, and nice sentiments. It is God’s blessing to you from the depth of His Love and of His intention that you live as the expression of Himself—His goodness, peace, power.

And so whatever may make our hearts or those of others less than receptive to Love, less than grateful for Life, less than responsive to what is most right and needed, He takes away. God is at the ready today to show us how freeing it can be to let go of resentments, pride, and fear and to begin afresh with tenderness, gentleness, forgiveness.

For this new heart is one that can’t be broken. It isn’t built on material desires, but made of God’s changeless and boundless affection, the Love that is secure. Let’s celebrate Love today because it is the heart of you. It is the Truth of your being which unites you with all the Love there is, right here and now and always.

“Live a life filled with love, following the example of Christ.” (Ephesians 5: 2, New Living Translation)

How do we live a life filled with love? It may seem as if we don’t really have control over that. We can certainly do our best to express compassion, affection, kindness toward our fellow man, but what about the unloving responses, the hateful things that we see going on out in the world?

We have our answer in this verse. The way is Christ. It is to follow that pure example to the best of our ability. For Jesus lived his life filled with love. It wasn’t personal love, general positivity, or a naïve approach to what was going on around him. Jesus lived the Christ, that identification every moment with God and His Love. This was the Life replete with Love that Jesus experienced. He felt the fulness of God’s affection and Jesus’s every thought and action proceeded from that conscious awareness.

We have the same oneness with God. We, too, have the natural ability to recognize and receive that great Love of God that is always at hand, and to know its power. We can allow that divine Love, that doesn’t judge or fear, to be shared in our daily walk. It can be seen in specific acts of kindness and gentle words, but even more so in that deep feeling of God’s own love within us. This is the Christ-Truth that can’t help but be felt, in healing ways, by others as well.
