Daily Inspiration, January 30th

“Let us rid ourselves of the belief that man is separated from God, and obey only the divine Principle, Life and Love. Here is the great point of departure for all true spiritual growth.” (Science and Health, page 91)

If we are going to make lift off, we have to get on the right runway. We need to be at the necessary point of departure, one that is smooth and clear, ready and solid, and aiming in the right direction. Getting off the ground of limits and leaving behind our fears requires that we know where we are, why we are safe, and Who is carrying us onward and upward.

Our growth spiritually–coming to own our true identity and to live it with its inherent freedom and joy–starts by knowing that we are not alone. We are not for a moment separate from God, with a will of our own to make us good or bad, take us down or up. We have to start from the standpoint of God alone. He is the Mind and the Life. He is the Principle that governs all things at all times. We never need to get to Him, and the glory of His Love. We are already and always there.

Obeying the divine Principle is that conscious and grateful yielding of the self that is separate (and a lie about us) to the Life and Love that is God, which we can’t ever be separate from, and is the grand Truth of our being. Starting from the Truth, we have our wings. Beginning with the awareness that we are in God, in good, in infinite Truth, and inseparable from it, makes our growth, our progress natural. It gives us the grounding on which to comfortably stand and off of which to steadily, safely, gloriously ascend heavenward, to real peace and satisfaction!

    Terrific!! Not to mention that, as a one time pilot and air traffic controller, I can assure you that the fastest and best takeoffs are into the wind. The stronger the wind, the quicker you rise.

    I was stationed in Mississippi at Keesler AFB years ago and a hurricane was imminent, the wind already howling. The order came to move all of the planes to an air force base father north. I watched the planes, one by one, taxi into position and turn into the wind for takeoff. They had barely started their takeoff roll and accelerating down the runway when they became airborne. Say a takeoff speed was indicated at 120 knots (mph), with a 60 knot wind it takes no time at all to get off the ground as they onloy had to reach 60mph ground speed..

    Sooo… all the worries causing doom and gloom and the seeming reality of oppressive problems yield as their headwinds are really only hastening our liftoff and ascent.

    Also, something interesting to me is, as the pilot raises the landing gear, that point of contact with the earth, the drag decreases and the aircraft lifts higher even faster. So, we gotta get our gear up and soar!!

    Love from the Control Tower!! Cleared for takeoff!!!

      Love it, Pat! That’s just wonderful sharing. I thank you for it and send love flying your way as well! 🙂

        THANKS!! I really liked your thoughts expressed in this. Another thought I had, especially as an Air Force Air traffic Controller stationed just south of the North Pole, working with Interceptor and bomber aircraft up and around the North Pole area. Many times an air defense alert would go off and we would scramble fighters to intercept unidentified and possible enemy aircraft. MANY time those brave guys, with some help from us, would taxi out and take off in dense ice fog or blowing snow without being able to see anything. It was completely dark that far north, 24 hours a day, for nearly six months and weather was atrocious. But, their courage, faith in the instruments and our radar guidance guided them through the scary times.

        We don’t HAVE to be afraid when listening to God and following His plan and guidance. But if we are, we can know that the guidance and the calm assuring voice of “the Controller” is there even if we can’t see out of the “cockpit”!!!

        I love the hymn in the Christian Science hymnal, which helps me in times when I seem to be flying “on instruments”, almost made for a pilot or air traffic controller::

        Lead, kindly Light, amid the encircling gloom,
        Lead Thou me on;
        The night is dark, and I am far from home,
        Lead Thou me on.
        Keep Thou my feet; I do not ask to see
        The distant scene; one step enough for me.

        I was not ever thus, nor prayed that Thou
        Shouldst lead me on;
        I loved to choose and see my path; but now
        Lead Thou me on.
        I loved the garish day, and, spite of fears,
        Pride ruled my will: remember not past years.

        So long Thy power hath blest me, sure it still
        Will lead me on
        O’er moor and fen, o’er crag and torrent, till
        The night is gone,
        And with the morn those angel faces smile,
        Which I have loved long since, and lost awhile.

        (Forgive my rambling but I thought this might be of interest.)

    When anyone rambles as great as you do, I just let ’em keep on rolling as long as they can! GREAT stuff, Pat. Wonderful stories and inspiring analogies, and that hymn just made me go: aaaah….and Amen!
