Fear not…you are safe

angel-427478_1280The Kingdom of Heaven is the safest place you can dwell.

This Kingdom is the consciousness of love, peace, and harmony — a selfless, divine Love for all men, women and children. This selfless, divine Love surrounds you and embraces you. You are safe in this Love. Meditate on this fact; rest in it.

No fear or worry about disease or death is part of this consciousness. No fear or worry is part of you. No fear or worry is in the atmosphere of divine Love, the Kingdom of Heaven.

We do not live in a physical space or time. You need to expand your sense of safety to know that you are safe because you live in Love — not because you live near or far away from conflict.

The Bible includes countless examples of God’s protection and power in times of war, famine and pestilence. Daniel was safe in the lion’s den, the three boys were safe in the furnace of fire (see Daniel 3 and 6), to give just a couple examples.

Why? Because the consciousness of Love has no sense of pain or fear. It can only see and know It’s own perfect reality. God is never afraid, never fears for His creation or manifestation. So, His likeness can not be made to fear.

You are safe in Love today. You can rest assured, not because of a physical place or location, but because you rest in the infinitude of Love. This is the safest place — or consciousness — in which you can dwell.

“Whoever dwells in the shelter [consciousness] of the Most High will rest in the shadow of the Almighty.” Psalm 91, NIV

Why do I love God?

emboss-infinityReligion may seem “dead” today, but it occurs to me that only material dogmas are really dead.

The love of God, and the love that God has towards us is very much alive. This is what “real” religion, or spirituality, is all about — that precious, tender relationship between God, man and all living things.

Why do I love God?

  • God is my Sustaining Infinite and Protector.
  • God is my Mind, and all of His/Her thoughts are lovely, loving and pure.
  • God’s Love is like a warm comforter on a cold, winter night that is always with me.
  • God’s Truth gives me direction and confidence.
  • God’s Soul gives me identity and identity to all living things in perfect unity. God’s Soul also gives me creativity, spontaneity and joy.
  • God’s Spirit is the substance of my being. It includes health, harmony and abundance.
  • God’s Life is my life. Forever and always.
  • God’s Principle is my solid foundation. The life, truth and love that I can never fall from.

These reasons for why I love God cause me to contemplate the question: how big is your God?

We can all expand our understanding and perception of God everyday. This spiritual understanding is the answer to every thing we need. It comprises the wholeness of who we are. It is basis for your health, your life purpose, your worth, and satisfaction.

This spiritual wholeness is illustrated in Christ Jesus’ statement, “Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind.” (Matthew 22:37 NIV)

Let the divine light shine

Each day is filled with such inspiring ideas about God’s love and perfect creation. I write many blogs in my mind, but often don’t get them down on my computer!

Today I read an inspiring article called “What you think counts“.

It explains how healing can happen when you entertain good thoughts about those around you.

The article shares this illustration:

…let us assume you are sitting in your living room with a friend. It is twilight, and you say, “I wish to read this article,” and you turn on a strong overhead light. This light enables not only you but also your friend to read. Neither had a darkness of his own. No, there was only one darkness, and one bright light dispelled it. Two lights were not required to dissipate the one darkness. The one bright light sufficed.

Each one of us has the light of Christ — divine goodness and love — to shine!

Jesus said, “Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works and glorify your Father in heaven.” Matthew 5:16.

It helps me to think of this as “let God’s light shine”, so I don’t feel tempted to think I have a personal power/light separate from God (after all, Jesus also said, “Why callest thou me good? there is none good but one, that is, God.” Mark 10:18).

Doesn’t this illustration make you want to shine this divine light brightly so that everyone can feel and experience divine goodness and the healing power of Love? It shows me that YES what we hold in thought does make a difference and each thought can be utilized to shine that light and bless others!

Have a happy day shining that light and blessing those around you!
