“When the spirit of truth comes it will take you by the hand and guide you into all the truth there is.” (John 16:13)
Divine Spirit is without age. It is always consistent, the same. It is always young and vital, alive and energetic. Knowing that this perfect Spirit is always available to us, at any time, always full of just what we need, is indeed very comforting.
Spirit is hard to understand at times because we don’t meet it with our five senses. We don’t touch, smell, taste, see or hear Spirit, but we do experience it. We experience it to the degree that we are willing to connect with it. Spirit is there, it is willing, it is always powerful, but in the midst of the many things that may burden us, bringing us stress or fear, we fail to allow this Spirit to meet our needs, heal our lives and lift us up to new heights of perfection in God. This Spirit, although universal, is also individualized for each and every one of us. Individualized to give us each a wonderfully unique expression of life.
In place of allowing fear to create the roadmap of our lives we can shift our thinking and belief to knowing we are always in the presence of the Divine atmosphere. The Divine Spirit is within you, in the 15 feet around you, and in the larger space around you as well. That space that includes your home, community, city, and our world. This presence is the true home in which you live. We should move in and make it our own with our belief and trust that fear has no place, but Divine unconditional love does.
Connecting with this perfect Spirit is as simple as it is stated in our scripture. Reach out your hand by directing your thinking and let this Divine Truth take hold of you and lead you to experience a new awareness of possibility for your life. We all long for this connection, so why the hesitation in accepting its power and presence right where you are? Why hesitate when our soul (our individualization of Spirit) longs for connection?
Theologian Richard Rohr has written: “Your soul is your participation in the eternal life of God.” I love that statement and it is one I certainly like to meditate upon.
Affirmation: “Reaching out my hand I am divinely and lovingly led to new and wonderful experiences with God.”
