The Sweet Awakening

Meditation Chair

“We have as much of [God’s Creative Power of Mind]… as we believe in and embody.  The storehouse of nature is filled with infinite good, awaiting the touch of our awakened thought to spring forth into manifestation…”
~ Ernest Holmes, The Science of Mind

In a recent meditation something was physically added to my body – a solid substance without consciousness or volition.  It sat in front of me in form, neutral – not asking, not communicating, just there.  Once I became aware of it, I noticed what was blocking it:  tensions in my body, evidence of the physical resistance I had been carrying.  Sitting with it, I became willing to let go of the resistance to take in what was in front of me.  It moved into me to the degree I could accept it and went away when there was no more room.

It was not a struggle, it was not an effort.  It was the more of me I had been praying to reveal.   I accepted it and was grateful for it.  When I came out of meditation there was not even a closing prayer to be spoken.  Spirit is so amazing.  So ready to appear in a form that I am ready to receive.

It is here in this sweet, fresh moment that I am ready to be taken to the next level.  I now serve from a deeper place of the open heart.  I have an understanding in this moment that I did not have even an hour ago.  This is the miracle:  that the expansion never stops, that the Life that I am never ceases to yearn for expression, that It is literally awaiting my invitation to fill me completely.  Every bit of spare space is needed, every drawer must be emptied; nothing can be withheld.

I am not waiting on the Lord, the Lord is awaiting my awakening.  It is not that I must strain to hear, it is that I must stop talking and sit still, even for the smallest moment, to listen to what is eternally being spoken.

The moment of awakening is now.  With bliss I surrender to this awareness.  I release, step aside and say YES.  I accept the more of me that is God.
