MY OWN COMMUNION

Jul 15 2015My delight in the law of the Lord and in his law doth he meditate day and night.  Psalm 1:2

There is always a silent communion going on between the individual soul and the invisible Presence.  This communion should become a conscious union of the self with the Over-Self, of the mind with the Spirit, of the personal with the Universal.  As the artist communes with the essence of beauty and gives birth to form so our minds should commune with the Divine Presence.

Today I commune with the Spirit.  I see the Spirit manifest.  In everyone I meet I shall commune with the Living Christ, the Divine Presence in him, sensing Its perfection, realizing Its beauty, and being consciously aware of its love.  Today I hold silent communion with that invisible Presence which peoples the world with the manifestations of its light and its love.

I declare the Presence of Spirit; I worship the God within me. Knowing that the Lord is in His holy temple, and that everything on earth is subject to His will, I bless the place where I now stand.  This attitude of blessing sheds a new light on my environment and I see beauties hitherto hidden. Even the commonplace takes on a new glow, and I hear “… a voice out of heaven, saying, Behold, the tabernacles of God is with men, and he will dwell with them, and they shall be his people.”
