Breathe

Let go of fearful thoughts and settle into the Loving Presence that sustains you.

John 10:37-38

“If I do not perform my Father’s works, do not believe me; but if I perform them, even if you do not believe me, believe the works, so that you may realize [and understand] that the Father is in me and I am in the Father.”

Jesus is modeling here his relationship with God so that we might also take part in the same relationship.

This was revolutionary!

When he says that God is in him and he is in God, this is also true for you and me!

It’s why Thomas Merton could write,

“Ultimately the only way that I can be myself is to become identified with Him in whom is hidden the reason and fulfillment of my existence. Therefore there is only one problem on which all my existence, my peace and my happiness depend: to discover myself in discovering God. If I find Him I will find myself and if I find my true self I will find Him” (New Seeds of Contemplation).

But at the same time, you and I are not God.

We are like tiny drops in the Ocean of God.

When you are in tune with your true self, you are in tune with God.

So how can you stay in tune with God which is especially important in these trying times?

Be present!

Be aware of the now.

Be aware of your many thoughts which are often the cause of your fears.

Step back and observe your thoughts.

Let them dissolve.

Do not be a slave to them!

Awaken.

God is with you and Love is prevailing.
