“I am humbled and quieted in your presence. Like a contented child who rests on its mother’s lap, I’m your resting child and my soul is content in you.” (Psalms 131: 2, the Passion Translation)
The sweet confession is the psalmist’s grateful sigh. His metaphors reveal his humility, that readiness to settle into his divine Mother’s care and to feel at peace.
This is a gentle surrender of self, of consciousness and of being, to the perfect Love of God. The writer has stopped any seeking and striving, any need to prove himself to the world or to earn his worth through actions. Any of that human activity and worry and responsibility is simply washed away by the awareness of God.
We rest in this gentle presence as well. We are children of Her Love, always, and our innermost being, our soul, the reality of who we are, is content. We can release the need for personal control and allow ourselves to surrender to the sacred lullaby of Oneness with God. His strength and certainty is our safety and assurance. We can give up the grown-up ego, and gratefully rest in the arms of our Father-Mother Who truly knows us and eternally loves us.
