Psalm 27:8

“Come,” says my heart, “seek his face”; your face, God, do I seek!

+++

Are you seeking the face of God?

What does that mean?

I think it simply means seeking the presence of God.

To do that, you must be aware, ready and open.

It’s a way of living your life.

It’s getting “you” out of the way so that God can enter.

By you, I mean your ego and your mind’s constant chatter and commentary.

When we still our minds, we suddenly experience the now.

I’m thinking this is a very rare experience for many.

It’s really more of a non-doing than a doing.

You seek God by letting go.

Stop for a moment.

Just stop.

Listen.

Get into the practice of pausing this way. (Centering Prayer or other form of meditation is a helpful practice.)

Notice what’s happening.

Be open to the awe and wonder of the ordinary.

When we do this, little synchronicities will occur, little coincidences.

We can get glimpses of the higher, more spiritual realms here on this earthly plain if we are present like a child.

As Jesus said, “Whoever does not accept the kingdom of God like a child will not enter it” (Mark 10:15).

The kingdom of God is already here for those who are awake.

As Jesus said, the coming of the kingdom of God cannot be observed. “No one will announce, ‘Look, here it is,’ or, ‘There it is.’ For behold, the kingdom of God is among you” (Luke 17:20-21).

Seek it and you will find it! (Matthew 7:7)
