As we have all seen in our lives, the only thing that is permanent in the external world is change. Life in the world of form has its ups and downs. We are invited to go beyond what we see and experience, and go to the sweet unchanging Reality as we make our plans.
Imagine that our lives are like a deep ocean. The surface of the ocean represents our life situation, buffeted by external activities, sometimes calm, sometimes windy with heavy tides which pull at us, according to the cycles and seasons of the planet. Deep down life goes on smoothly, and always undisturbed by the activity above. There is nothing to be disturbed, no matter how much the surface trembles and reacts to the environment. The Law has no problems, we are told by Dr. Ernest Holmes. As we abide in Being, in awareness of Spirit, we realize we are the whole ocean, the whole idea of Life expressing, unchanging, timeless, eternal.
As we recognize we are no longer dependent for fulfillment or happiness on the outer world of constantly fluctuating forms, we know we can enjoy the energy of life, play with new ideas, experiences and people. We can create new forms and appreciate the beauty of it all. We recognize there is no need to attach ourselves to anything that we create. We become the calm center of Being.
To assist in developing deeper consciousness, we at the Center for Spiritual Living-Ashbury Heights offer Sunday talks, classes, workshops and discussions. Join us to create together an exciting, harmonious experience of a deeper consciousness and spirituality.
