Space and Grace
Choosing our space has much to do with experiencing grace. Where are we right now? Are we living subject to the external influences of our daily lives? Do the actions and reactions of those around us cause the turmoil which exists in us? If so we must carefully consider our existence on a multitude of levels.
The past is gone and the future is not here, so the only real thing is right now. In that brief moment before time is the power of creation. Are we using this moment to create what we want or are we using it to create what we don’t?
We exist simultaneously on many levels. I’m afraid that these are infinite, but to simplify things let’s say there is the internal world, external environment and the spiritual realm of existence. What we feel internally has much to do with what we experience externally. However, the truth of our existence is in the spiritual. We are our souls and our spirits created in the image of the Creator. Spiritual beings having a human experience seems to be the popular way of stating this fact.
We are Hu-Man-Beings. The energy or vibration of the Creator in Mankind with the power to co-create our experience exists within us. In every now moment we co-create with I Am that, I Am. This is our essential nature! Here is Truth and Being.
The core of humanity is love. We must emanate love to receive love. Love is in us all. Many search externally for what exists internally. The truth is that love resides in our heart and soul. It’s not missing or misplaced, but we have stored it away with the intention of keeping it safe. The good news is it’s easy to find what has never been lost.
In protecting ourselves from hurt we shield our Being from love. Unintentionally many have blocked the most incredible blessing and essence of our Being. Fear of hurt has caused us to forfeit the joy of love. Ironic isn’t it? The thing we so urgently search for we already have. We search desperately for our car keys only to find that they are concealed in the palm of our hand.
The word grace has so many meanings, but to me its meaning is a combination of them all. It really is a huge contributor to the pleasantness of our experience. Through forgiveness, tolerance and compassion it moves us through what we interpret as time.
It’s funny how often people say, “I need space” when in fact they are asking for freedom. Oddly enough they don’t truly understand what they are asking for. You see, in truth is freedom and freedom exists in the gap; in the space between thoughts. This is what I refer to as being in the now. So really they say the answer without knowing what the answer is. They state the need without truly understanding what the need is. We don’t need distance. We need existence. All that is real exists in the now.
Where are we right now? The truth is we can be where ever we want to be. It’s our choice to stay or to go. We hold the key to our experience. Cultivating the love within will bring about the love without.
