“…now is high time to awake out of sleep: for now is our salvation nearer than we believed.” (Romans 13: 11)
It’s that time. No more sluggishness. No more putting off spiritual awareness to linger in matter, the familiar but unsatisfying dream. What are we waiting for? Is there a better day than today to fully and enthusiastically accept our salvation, the saving recognition that we are the children of God, spiritual and good? Get up and do it!
Let’s approach today like a child on Christmas morning. Let’s come into it with a spirit of excitement and expectation, a willingness to accept the gifts of goodness and love that are brought into our presence, especially for us. Let’s set aside pre-conceived adult notions that we must be perfect humans in order to be divine ideas and to receive the blessings that come with that identity. Let’s not insult our Father-Mother by denying Him the opportunity to Love us with unconditional goodness and grace.
Salvation is at hand for God is at hand, but He is not found by pondering matter and material circumstances. He can’t be realized through physicality, physiology, or in other people or events. He is bigger than that and also more intimately right, true, and loyal in His active presence and Love.
You are His treasured child. Wake up and see yourself as He sees you. Accept the sacred, saving consciousness that you are an immortal idea of the everlasting Father-Mother-Love. Now is the time and right here is the place to claim and express your full and fruitful and lovable Life, without reservation, without hesitation, and with a grateful celebration!
