Dwell in the consciousness of God’s love

We all want to have a consciousness that is safe, at peace, and free from distractions and disturbances. We can have this! We can cultivate this. We can have a safe, mental space that is free to be at peace, to walk securely with God, divine Love, and to know our unchangeable oneness with God.

This consciousness is spiritual. It’s Source is God. We have this Mind because we are at one with God right now.

For in him we live and move and have our being. Acts 17:28 

This Source is the only true Consciousness. A limited consciousness that is upset, fatigued, careless, etc. doesn’t belong to us. The one true Consciousness is totally at peace because it is the one Ego, the great I AM. We can be at one with this Consciousness now, and, in reality, we always are. We feel this oneness by opening up our minds to hearing what God, good, is saying right now. Messages of peace and comfort; messages saying I love you, you are my “beloved son/daughter in whom I am well pleased”.

God is constantly pouring in these messages of peace and love, which counteract stress, anxiety, and lift us up from whatever situation we may be going through.

Take moments each day to feel the power and comfort of divine Love, your one true Consciousness, in whom you live, move and have your being. Divine Love wants to hold you up, wants to be revealed to you, and wants to “bear you up on eagle’s wings”.

Dwell in the consciousness of this eternal hug and know your Father-Mother God is embracing you right now.

Loving our next door neighbors

We’ve all had “those” neighbors, I’m sure. The ones who move in and seem to disrupt our routine, our quiet, our peace, etc. We had those neighbors, too. But then they did a surprising act of kindness, and this one positive interaction with them completely changed our perspective. They were the Good Samaritans helping us with car trouble, and we were given the opportunity to learn more humility, grace, and understanding from the experience. Now we have a relationship based on appreciation for one another. Have you had an experience like this, too?

You can read about this experience in my recent article for The Christian Science Monitor.

Fresh new beginnings

In the New Year, many people are thinking about new ways to do things, setting new goals, and ushering in a sense of freshness and new beginnings. But how do we sustain that throughout the year? I have found that a daily dose of fresh inspiration from contemplative prayer in the morning to be the best way to start my day off right with refreshing and inspiring views.

These views hint to the divine nature — enable me to glimpse beyond the material picture — to a deeper sense of spiritual harmony, goodness, and joy — a force for Good that is powerfully and wonderfully sustaining each of us.

As we drink in these new views of God, the divine nature, our thoughts are uplifted and we feel a sense of our oneness with God. When challenges come up, we are more easily able to address them from a standpoint of poise and grace because we have built a solid spiritual foundation in the morning.

At night before bed, wrapping the day up in gratitude for all the good you experienced and the spiritual qualities you saw expressed around you is a great way to pull up your spiritual Comforter and feel the divine embrace tucking you in. Your Father-Mother God is tenderly caring for your child within and enables you to drink in drafts of Spirit to renew and invigorate you.

Here is an article I wrote for New Year’s about these ideas that was recently published in the Christian Science Sentinel. I hope these ideas will be as useful to you as they have been to me.
