“When you go deeply into the present, gratitude arises spontaneously.” – Eckhart Tolle
Listen to my song “Make Me a Channel” on YouTube by clicking HERE.
“I delight to do your will, my God; your law is in my inner being!”
For years I searched all over for the truth.
Who am I and what is my purpose?
I read a myriad of books.
I had conversations with all kinds of wise people.
I delved deeply into religion.
But the most amazing thing happened when I was at my lowest place, when I had tried all that was humanly possible to find who I was and could not find a satisfactory answer.
It happened when I was lying flat in a hospital bed following surgery for a ruptured appendix.
I was very sick and feeling helpless.
It was then that I experienced the most incredible communication in my inner being.
The instantaneous download said: “You are loved eternally just as you are.”
I experienced Love from the Source of Love.
There is no rational explanation for this and I’m sure many roll their eyes and take no notice of my experience.
And I understand that because it wasn’t their experience, but mine.
From that moment (or moments), I know that I know that I know I am loved infinitely.
When I live from this place of Love, which happens fleetingly from time to time, I am completely in the Flow of the moment.
My ego’s desires dissolve.
As Jesus put it, “Whoever loses his life for my sake will find it” (Matthew 16:25).
In other words: Whoever lets go of their ego-generated-false self for the path of self-emptying presence will find their real life.
Only then can I be a channel of Love with no expectations of outcomes.
Only then do I experience the delight of doing God’s will.
Only then do I know my true self as simply a child of God.
Gratitude comes to life.
