God is the purpose of life.
He is Light.
To find God or to attain Christ Consciousness is the way to experience
blissful peace and joy here on earth.
I was so very busy attending to the duties of life that
I failed to open my eyes and see beauty surrounding me.
I searched blindly for more and rarely felt satisfied.
I longed for something . . .and that something, the world could not satisfy.
I now know God sleeps in the stars and is everywhere.
He sings in the birds and is awake in me but I was unawake; asleep and unaware.
God waited for me to wake up so I could give Him my love.
Earthly life felt so scary amongst all the struggle and the idea of death.
But now there is no fear- - I realize everything is Spirit, everything is Light.
Everything is God.
Light and shadow is all there is.
By lifting myself through non-attachment,
I found the great elixir on the screen of my consciousness.
Through the depths of my devotion,
I dove deeper and experienced real communion with God.
Before this I remained on the surface of my mind.
BUT . . . I dared to dive deeply enough . . .
beneath the surface of my mind, into the ocean of meditation . . .
and I found His presence.
Psalm 46:10 "Be still, and know that I am God"
Light was always there, but I couldn't see it when I kept my eyes closed.
Through delusion and with my mind closed, I did not see the presence of the Infinite atoms, mountains, earth sky, rivers, oceans, trees, men, women, and children and thoughts -
I only saw difference and havoc when I concentrated on the drama of life.
When I learned how to watch carefully,
I began to see light dancing on all things present before me
-- as a dance of shadow and light.
NOW . . .whenever I fail to see the light,
whenever I fail to feel the dance, I dive deeper.
And I Keep diving.
With open eyes to God, with non-attachment to the drama of earth, I see that we are all of the same light.
That light in the sun, moon, stars, in day and night, and in our eyes and in our souls .
is the One Light that lights us all.
Delusion is the mind turned outside.
If we keep our eyes closed, like I did,
we do not see the presence of the infinite light that blinks everywhere.
We remain distracted with too much focus in the drama, in the movies of life.
When we align our little self with the greater Self,
life magically brightens and flows.
When we do all things to please God, we flow with ease.
When we accept all things as coming from God, we have a sense of reassurance or knowing that we are going through it all together, with God, in love
-- without fear.
Right living is not easy.
Life is about choices.
The world offers endless choices.
The ride isn't always smooth.
There will be loses, pain, and failures --
Chasing after the things of this world is a meaningless life.
Life does not have meaning for those who chase the things of the world.
No matter how much money, status, or things aquired, meaning is missed.
The true meaning of life is . . .
to find God through daily meditative communion and to have right action. . .
which means . . .
doing all things to please Him.
