Relax: Word Origins, the Immersion, and Inner Freedom
Grace: our liberation, our answer, our happiness.
Grace relax: being the natural restedness of our true nature.
We may say the word Grace, with the mind. In a similar way, we may say the word swim, with
Merely saying the word swim, without swimming, limits or negates the experience of being a
swimmer. However, swimming in the ocean of azure blue buoyant waters, riding white capped
waves and warmly unifying with a dolphin swirling near, presents an immersion in the swim.
As a swimmer relaxes, swims, floats in the welcoming, boundless sea, the swimmer unifies in the
sea. The swimmer rests in the oceanic expanse, at ease in the harmony of the sea. Rather than the
ocean appearing in the swimmer, the swimmer seems to rise and fall upon the sea, come and go
within the sea.
Merely saying the word Grace, or thinking the word Grace, without knowing the serene
receptivity to Grace, seemingly limits or negates the immersion-like Grace relax.
In Grace accepted, Grace liberation relax, Grace loved and lived in —our life springs alive as an
immersion in Grace. We awake as Grace liberation relax.
Relax, from the Middle English relaxer, the Latin relaxare, means to relax, loosen, or open.
Relax drives from re, which means back, and lexare or laxus, which means loose or free.
Thus, we see here the original meaning of relax as: back free, or returning to freedom.
Grace liberation relax: back free.
Grace liberation relax.
In Grace liberation-relax, we relax in being, without striving to become, or attain. Liberation-relax means a resting from that which you are not; resting from that which we are not. In our true
nature we are not stress. Liberation-relax rests us from stress. In our true nature we live free
from want and lack. In liberation-relax we rest from a belief or emotion around not having. Of
Itself, our true nature ever shines, ever Is.
The antonym of relax, the word, stress, we may define as, a loss of freedom.
We tend to think of stress as based on external conditions. We believe that serial outside stimuli
trigger a physical, mental or emotional reaction, threat, or exhaustion.
However, the more core and central stress arises from a perceived loss of freedom. We may feel
loss of freedom in love, life, health, or expression; loss of freedom in resources, choices, home,
environment, world conditions, and such.
Beneath perceptions and experiences of loss of freedom, of stress, lies our core existential stress
— a perceived sense of separation from the divine Presence, and from our divine nature.
Yet, we cannot truly, for even an instant, be separate from Creator Presence. Thus, nor are we
truly estranged from our divine nature. This moment, no matter what we may see or experience,
we are and have the totality of Grace.
Grace liberation relax.
The Latin word, relaxo not only means ease or alleviate; relaxo also means cheer up or enliven.
Living in Grace sets the tone of our days and our life in enlivened ease.
A deeper in-spirited way of being relaxedness, opens a way of life serenely awake in ease.
Relax: enlivened ease.
Relax: return to freedom.
Nothing we see, hear, or encounter has the true power to bind our inner freedom. Grace now
illumines inherent freedom to live as inner happiness, to share happiness abundantly in our
Grace now: the liberation relax.
Relax in Grace.
Grace relax, for and abounding-surrounding all beings, all of life.
Grace, our happiness.
Grace Relax: Experiential Contemplation, & Grace Presence
This simple Grace Relax contemplation offers an instantaneous awareness in Grace. Rested in

Brief Version of Grace Relax Contemplation:
- Breathe In: Grace Now
- Breathe Out: Grace Relax
A simple contemplation such as one of the two above, with a clear intention or heart wish to
know divine Grace, opens the way to ever deepening realization of Grace.
You may wish to rest in this Grace Relax contemplation when stress arises to: ease repetitive
thoughts, quiet the mind, release emotions, relax the body, and calm the nervous system. The
contemplative practice may engender calm responses, kind communication, creative innovation,
abundance, and strengthened immune system.
Contemplation on and in eternal Grace, opens the way for spiritual realization, God Presence. It
is in and by Grace that the separate sense of self, that underlies all stress, washes away into the
knowing of eternal and changeless Love.
We already are created in Presence Love and Grace, the whole infinity of Consciousness,
limitless and free. Living in Grace, opens the way of simple and miraculous natural fulfillment,
ease of suffering, and knowing inner happiness.
Grace liberation relax.
