“Return unto thy rest, O my soul; for the Lord hath dealt bountifully with thee.” (Psalms 116: 7)
We can relax. We can give our personal sense of self over to our true Soul, that loving Giver of goodness and love. We can gratefully release our bodies and our lives to God, as the psalmist did, and praise our divine Soul for His bounty. God has provided for us abundantly. He has granted us more than enough of all that is good and right and true.
The agitated sense of things that rises up can be quelled by our awareness of the Truth of Life. We are not mere mortals suffering through each day with scanty supply and tenuous health and happiness. God has been generous with us. He has given us the gracious plenty of reflection. We are the very image of His qualities, His nature, and so we already include all that He is and has, without reservation and with His wisdom behind its perfect distribution.
Accept the presence of your beautiful bounty. Agree to the fullness of things. Stop trying to reach and strain for the substance of good that is already yours, but instead “return unto rest.” Be the child that rests naturally and trustingly in his Mother’s arms, knowing that every need is met already because of the nearness and tenderness of overflowing Love.
