Be Still and Know That I Am God. This one verse, resplendent with deep wisdom principles, illumines rich direct experience of God Presence, palpably lived each instant. This one living phrase, if fully known and lived, reveals profound fulfillment and lasting spiritual realization.
Eternal Presence created-emanated-existed You as its exact Presence. In all universes of universes and heavens of heavens no greater gift could be given. No more immense infallible Grace ever happened than being created as the Exact Presence of the Eternal God.
In a world of unstable dramas, uncertain relationships, teetering markets, avalanches of new information, new technologies, new systems, the certain anchor arises in: Still. Still one with the Eternal God Presence, Still Original Light, Still the bliss of true Love, Still the flourishing completion, Still changeless Spirit.
Our materialistic culture does not contribute to collective suffering because people have things, or wealth or affluence. We spiral up webs of suffering when we, individually and collectively believe that things (assets and money, as well as relationships, others, love, kindness) belong to a separate “me” as a commodity, as an object, as something to give or to withhold.
Relax into this experiential practice to Softly Be. Open for this to flower within you spontaneously, rather than turning it into a set-in-stone or rote technique. Thus, Softly Be with the practice and experience it as ever fresh and new each time you contemplate.
When a person moves toward us there is a whole field moving toward us—of their history, their perceptions, their values, their attitudes, their emotions. When we feel most identified as a person with our own history, attitudes, emotions, mentations, then we tend to receive this field of a person in the same way.
The way of Grace and miracles occurs by first simply authentically seeing this. See how unconditional love does not really happen, see the conditions of love that we place upon each other. Really see how the love feeling or affection feeling changes within you or another. Be authentic with this.
