I love my kids!!! We recently had a conversation, Papa and the 2 year old, that went like this:
I love you Shemmesh! I love you Papa! I love you Shemmesh! I love you Papa!
You are so sweet!! I love you Chesca!! Aww you love Chesca?? That is soo sweet baby!!
I come before thee, father, in the love of a child and a parent, the love between children. Each of my inspirations are directed to thee, father, representing the holiness within me. The reason I direct my inspirations toward thee is representing devotion, the earthly part of me being directed and being in alignment with that which is above me, with that with is holy, pure and expansive within. I also direct my devotion, my inspiration to the holiness within those who may be listening to or reading this, that purity may find a home in the heart of another and strengthen that which is in them.
Heavenly Father, I am meditating this moment on what it means to seek the lowest point of being. In dreamtime, my dreaming teachers have come and demonstrated several ways of seeking the lowest point of being.
“All things seek the lowest point of being.”
This is the way of nature. The ocean is great because it is the lowest point of water. Sea level is that which all other bodies of water seek, therefore, all flows into the ocean because it is at the lowest point and that is what makes it great. All things seek their lowest point.
When I share this wisdom, there is very little response. People come into a point of stillness and even fear to come across the idea of ‘always seek the lowest point of being.’ Even myself, when the dream teachers said that to me I walked away with a troubled heart. It felt like seeking the lowest point of being would be an imposition on others.
The seeking itself is the point. The teaching does not say, “Always insist on the lowest point of being,” it says “Always seek.” To seek the lower point.
Standing Above, Standing Below
In thinking about the lower point of being over these couple of days since the dream, I’ve thought of many scenarios. If I am in resistance of any kind to what is in my world, the point of being that I am expressing myself as is standing above it and telling it that it is wrong.
Any moment of resistance, is a moment of standing over life, a moment of standing over the people in your world.
Any moment of gratitude is a moment of taking the lowest point. Truly in any moment there are only two points: The point that is above and the point that is below. Over time, the lowest point is clear, but in the moment there are only two points to choose from.
Resistance is standing above. Any moment of gratitude is taking a point beneath. And the amazing mystery is that the point beneath is actually the point of the greatest control, the greatest power and the point of the greatest allowance of the flow of life to move.
If one is beneath another, they are able to lift the other up, and they are loved in the world as they are accustomed to seeking that point and lifting people up. Everyone loves the person who makes them feel better about themselves.
Everyone wants to know “who am I in your eyes?” And no matter what you say or do, you are constantly answering this question for them, “Who am I in your eyes?” The feedback they get is either higher or lower, or more expansive or less expansive than that which they see themselves.
Seek the lower position that can lift people up. This is only one of hundreds of possible examples of how this position should be sought. If I am a father and holding a child, holding them in my love, guiding them, where am I in relation to them? Am I standing above them and doing so in a way that is just resisting them? Or am I holding them from below, giving them the tools that they themselves need to make the right choices?
We are served by that which is below us
Heavenly father, please teach me more and more about seeking the lowest point of being. Show me all the ways that this powerful law of the universe can be applied.
What about God himself: Is God standing above us? Or is He below us? In that which is below us, we find rest. In that which is below us, we are served and not even know it. The divine is invisible in each one and yet serves us in every micro-moment, every millisecond, on the quantum level to allow this world to be in its present form.
God is below us, serving us, blessing us, embracing us and the gifts of life, nature, the earth and of the soul – the divine has made creation without taking any credit, thinking only for the happiness of his children and the experience of life in this world through our eyes. How much love is there expressed in taking such a low position? How much love is there expressed in taking that lowest point of being? Just like all streams and rivers lead to the ocean, the path of all existence leads to God because He takes the lowest point of being.
Seeking to own my divinity, I seek to find ways to serve the people in my world. This metaphor of being beneath, being lower is a powerful image describing what is required in the level of one’s attitude to be able to serve. If one is being asked to serve by the expression of the prayer of another, if I do so insisting my own way of doing it, I am taking a higher position to the prayer of another, taking a higher position to God.
If I cannot serve the prayer of God that can be heard and can be seen, how can I serve the prayer of God which is unseen? If I cannot serve the prayer of my wife, the prayer of my boss, which can be heard, can be seen, how can I serve the prayer of my Heavenly Father, which cannot be heard and cannot seen, except when I am present? For I and my Father are one. This is the law and it applies to every human being.
Always seek the lowest position in beingness. This law is inevitable, for even if as I have done in my life, I stand above my wife, stand above the people in my life, even my boss and tell them the way it should be in whatever way, whether it is my tone or my attitude or my e-mails, seeking the highest place in relation to others. What have I done? I have set myself up to fall, and I have fallen many times in my life because of it. The man who seeks the lowest point of being is always grounded. The man who seeks the lowest point of being is trustworthy, is of service and is filled with the light of gratitude.
And what is gratitude? Gratitude is not sufficiently embodied by the words ‘thank you,’ gratitude is not sufficiently embodied in words of prayer or any kind of words. In fact, gratitude and awareness are inextricably linked. Gratitude starts with awareness of all that is, and ends with praise of all that is.
