Ensoulment through Words

Sunday, Feb 15th
Upon realizing that the gating channel of our bodies filter out so much information, I stood up from my seat, and went out for a walk around the block.
When was the last time I had truly felt all that was around me?
When was the last time my heart was full of innocence and wonder?
As I breathed deeply into my abdomen, I became more and more relaxed.
With each passing breath, I realized that I was Divine, and a holy Son of God.
Walking down the street, I began to feel the sun falling upon my face, the passing of the cars, and the people who sat down on a bench waiting for their bus ride.
I wondered how many people had lost touch with the feeling part of their souls, and were subjected to ignorance and suffering.
A lady passed by me on the street, wearing blue running shoes, and a bright yellow sweatshirt. She smiled at me, and said “hello”, and I greeted her back with a “hi” in a quiet voice.

I turned around to look at her as she walked away. Her complexion was fair, her hair blonde and long tied in a pony tail, and her face exuded vibrancy and joy.
For a brief moment in time, we had come across each other only to part ways.
Who knows who she was. Maybe she was someone I knew in a past life.

I walked across the park, observing the trees all around me, taking in their sentience, waking up to the intelligence of the world around me. Nature is indeed alive and wise. I spread out my arms, and embraced the warmth of the sun, as I chanted the holy names of the Lord. Soon, my mind fell into stillness, and my spirit merged with the heat of the light, until all that was left of me was the warmth of Truth and Silence.

Why do we Exist?

Sometimes, I wonder why it is we go through life facing trials. There comes a point in a man’s life in which he is overwhelmed by the task at hand; and that task is to serve the Lord with all his Strength and Heart.

With such a maddening journey laid ahead for the mortal man, how is he to push past the fear and tread forth into tomorrow?

He must do so by cutting off all the chains of what he perceived to be reality, for it was all illusion to begin with, and must step forth into a brighter new world. This new world is one that is already here despite the delusion that binds man in fear.

By breaking free of the shackles of reality, our consciousness is liberated and united with the Source of All, which is God, pure consciousness and awareness. The One that existed before Everything, reveals Himself in all of His Glory to shatters the mortal ego into oblivion, forever slaying the falsities of the mind and of separateness.

Only does man become aware of his true purpose for existence, and that is to serve the Lord with all of his Might, for The Father and him and now One forever, and the man has become his Humble Servant Forever.

Only through serving the Lord, does His Light shine through man into this world, letting the God’s Will be felt on Earth.

When man releases himself into Truth, and unites the mind with God, he becomes Him and partakes of his everlasting Divinity. Thus does man truly find everlasting salvation.

Whether he knows it or not, man dwells forever in the Heart of God.

Centuries of Meditation

You never will enjoy the world aright till the sea itself floweth in your veins, till you are clothed with the heavens, and crowned with the stars, and perceive yourself to be the sole heir of the whole world, and more than so, because men are in it who are every one sole heirs as well as you; till you can sing and delight and rejoice in God, as misers do in gold, and kings in scepters…till you are as familiar with the ways of God in all ages as with your walk and table; till you are intimately acquainted with that shady nothing out of which the world was made.

-Thomas Traherne, “Centuries of Meditation”
