Being Stillness-ACIM Review VI: Lesson #208
I am not a body. I am free. For I am still as God created me./The peace of God is shining in me now.
I will be still and let the earth be still along with me.
And in that stillness, we will find the peace of God/Source.
It is within my heart, which witnesses to God/Source Himself.
In my opinion, one of the hardest tenants of spirituality to reconcile is the raging maniac in my head with the Zen master that lives in my heart.
The maniac in my head often drones on about a world gone mad. My to-do list. Or the crumbs on my kitchen counter.
The Zen master in my heart asks me why I think these things are important.
What to do? How to let Zen master speak louder than monkey-brain?
Ironically, Lesson 208 says it is not turning up the volume that works-but turning down. Sitting. In the silence. Allowing the innate peace of the earth and the breeze to sooth my aching mind into stillness. And then…To listen…To hear. To remember what my Soul is offering in the form of wisdom today. Tomorrow. In every moment.
Our hearts are the silent witness of the Universe dear friends. Waiting for us to hear their persistent wisdom. Asking us to step away from the busy and the noise. Inviting us to join in the calm peace that God/Source is waiting and always available to give.
In peace and stillness today Dear LightWatcher.
