Heavenly Father, speaking thy name fills me with so much joy at thy presence. Here I am, in stillness, in peace, ever slowly withdrawing within.
I met a master when I lived on Kauai, who is no longer on this earth. He was a guru of the Hindu temple on Kauai. I was allowed to spend a day with him, and his description of his process of enlightenment was to go deeper and deeper and deeper within. At the time, it didn’t really sound too valuable to me.
What does it truly mean to go within, Father, if what is found is not illuminated with thy presence, the joy and the energy of sacred communion?
We are a commanded as thy children to “Be still and know that I am God.” There are times when our bodies become so full of energy and power that it can actually be quite painful to someone who is not accustomed to it. And yet, we can cultivate our ability to accept thy love, accept thy power, to accept thy wisdom, to accept the present moment and people in our world just as it is – to accept and bless it.
To be still and know that I am God, I come before thee Father, in silence and in stillness and in acceptance, with so much gratitude, with all of my heart.
May the light of thy presence, the shadow of the presence of the Father – may the countenance of thy smiling light be upon me, and may my heart be made new on this day.
May I be still and fully accepting of the intensity emerging from within. The intensity of Love, the intensity of Truth and the intensity of Life – each of which has its own agenda, not my own.
