Empty Yet Full

As ego recedes…true self rises.

Psalm 62:2

My soul rests in God alone, from whom comes my salvation.

+++

My soul…my truest self…is yearning for something…something to complete me.

It is a yearning that only the Creator can satisfy.

When I am present to the Divine Presence…the Sacred Unity of all things (in whom “we live and move and having our being” (Acts 17:28)…I realize my connection and belongingness right here and now.

I am suddenly complete – you might say “saved.”

God is always present…it is we who many times aren’t.

I must first be empty of ego and its unquenchable desires before I can experience the fullness of all Being.

As Jesus put it, “Whoever seeks to preserve his life will lose it, but whoever loses it will save it” (Luke 17:33).

Then in my emptiness and freedom from attachments, I am free to be the person I was created to be in the service of the One who created everything.
