Let the peace of this moment free you.

Psalm 23:1

The Lord is my shepherd; there is nothing I lack.

If we truly took this verse to heart and lived it…we would know peace.

If we truly let God lead us, guide us and love us…we would have all we need.

We…and everything else…would be enough.

Unfortunately, many of us are living in the trance of a culture that leads us to always yearning for more stuff.

We are constantly being told that we need more and more to be happy.

Advertisers and marketers know well what they are doing.

But the fact of the matter is…in this moment…right nowwhat is lacking?

Nothing.

You are breathing.

Life is pulsing through you.

You are a miraculous child of God.

Who or what is leading you in life?

Who or what is your motivating source?

Are you trying to please your ego or God?

Did you ever hear that EGO stands for: Edge God Out?

When we let go of our attachment to worldly things…in a sense emptying ourselves, we are free to experience the Divine Presence.

When God (or Unconditional Love) is our primary focus and we are totally present to God (or Unconditional Love)…we lack nothing.

A contemplative prayer practice will help you immensely. Try sitting quietly for 15 to 20 minutes…allowing all your thoughts to slowly slip away.

Be present to the Divine Presencebreathe…and all will be quite enough.
