This is a beautiful thought: that we are fed from the table of the Universe, Whose board is ever spread with blessedness and peace; Whose loving-kindness has never been fathomed; Whose grace and truth are the cornerstones of Reality.
Ernest Holmes, The Science of Mind
If you only knew how much you are loved and cared for, you would fear nothing! It’s as though this whole universe is here to love and support you. And yet we suffer. We suffer because we don’t believe it; and in our lack of belief, we push away the very things we so desire in the deepest part of our being.
Faith is a tricky thing, isn’t it? Believing in what you cannot see…but faith in what you cannot see is everything. Socrates said, “Know thyself.” In the knowing of self, we come to realize our divine essence. We begin to see that we are more than just these flesh and bone bodies. We begin to see that we can tap into the divine nature of the universe. We realize we are never alone. We realize that we are loved unconditionally, and that we are creators of our own universe. No matter what is going on in the outer world—the craziness, the confusion, and the fear—we rise above all that into the light. We do that because there is a divine light within us, which transcends all things. It is a light that illumines the world. We rise above the din and confusion. We are in the flow and moving in life with ease and grace. Everything is going our way because we resist nothing; instead we are part of the All. We are one, and life is good.
We are fed at the inexhaustible table of the Divine, and ultimately our greatest expression is one of gratitude and thanksgiving. We are willing NOW to transcend this world of appearances into true Reality.
I release my fear and sense of separation. All is good because all is God!
