Now are we one with Him Who is our Source. [W-p188.8.131.52]
Gathas are short phrases popularized by Thich Nhat Hanh. These phrases remind us to return to the present moment. Like Lesson 164, they ask us to recognize that the present moment is the only moment that is. Our point of power. Because where we direct our focus and attention is what we choose to attract.
And what we look for in our lives.
A few of my favorite gathas from Hanh are:
Present moment. Precious moment.
Waking up this morning, I smile. Twenty-four brand new hours are before me. I vow to live fully in each moment and to look at beings with eyes of compassion.
They are meant to return us to this moment. To honor where we are. ACIM calls this the holy instant. The magical place where we are in perfect union and communication with our Source. Here, Lesson 164 guarantees is our treasure. In THIS moment is our rest.
It is a silence on which the world cannot intrude. An ancient peace which lives in our hearts and can never be lost. A sense of holiness where any thought of sin has never touched.
Today ACIM asks that we let go of grievances in exchange for faith. Faith that there is more to the world than misery or suffering. There is truth in seeing with the vision of Source. Today step back and allow this one-ness to fill your heart. In this very instant.
