Matthew 10:7

“As you go, make this proclamation: ‘The kingdom of heaven is at hand.’”

+++

When we are living in the Flow of God’s unconditional love…when we are giving and receiving this Love…then we truly are proclaiming: “The kingdom of heaven is at hand.”

This was the instruction Jesus gave to his apostles as he sent them out.

It is his same instruction to you and me right now.

Jesus clearly wanted us to cooperate in bringing the “kingdom of heaven” into the present

Easier said than done.

Our egos will not be on board with this. When a person’s ego is in control…that person will be self-focused and concerned about his or her own kingdom.

It takes a “dying to self” to be able to participate in the kingdom of God.

As Jesus so famously put it: “unless a grain of wheat falls to the ground and dies, it remains just a grain of wheat; but if it dies, it produces much fruit” (John 12:24).

Letting go takes practice. It comes either through meditation / contemplative prayer…or suffering…or both.

So…how can I proclaim the kingdom of God?

It starts now…by being present to the Divine Presence in each moment…in each person…and in every created thing

Namaste.
