AWARENESS! It’s a wonderful thing!
Morning and I didn’t dare move an inch. I was so afraid the new awareness playing out behind my eye lids might fade from view if I did. The writer in me wanted to slide out of bed in the direction of my computer to capture accurately the fine details and preserve the awareness for my blog and eternity, but I couldn’t take the chance…and besides it was soooo awesome! So I coaxed myself into staying; silently making a promise to remember every feeling, every frame of this movie ‘even including the inconsequential ones’ I remember noting…funny that last bit.
Like a little kid at Christmastime I ‘believed’ in Santa/A Course in Miracles before I was ‘seeing’ the presents/results. Dedicated and focused, the gifts came quickly and the weight of my ego-filled life was lifting from my shoulders as the chasm separating the mind from the body began to shrink. However, days did turn into weeks, then into months, and then years. It was process, process, and more process day-after-day. When I say process, it’s the constant correcting the errors of my ego through forgiveness. It’s the understanding of cause and effect…a 24 hour a day job.
Awareness is visual, is feeling, is knowing, and is light; a lifting up. As a writer words are the tool I use to aid my readers, to transport them to that wondrous place just above the horizon; that new dimension of the mind. Often my words are inadequate and lack the depth of the actual experience as it happened to me, and that’s why I was torn; staying put or rushing to the computer. You know my answer.
A couple of weeks ago I asked the question of the Holy Spirit, ‘When will I accept that I am the light of the world?’ And the awareness this morning was my answer.
I am the light of the world. That is my only function. That is why I am here. A Course in Miracles
There I was standing on the edge of a cliff. I felt a warm breeze wafting over my body ever so slightly and moving the few strands of hair that touched my brow. I’m guessing my body was there but I didn’t see or feel the entirety of it, feet only…no, I take that back, toes only; they were curled over the ledge for sure and they were mine, ha, I recognized them.
Then I looked out over the chasm the one that stood between me and the other side; that higher awareness of God. I felt calm and totally absent of fear. The knowing coming from within was profound and clear; seems I’m moving in the direction of function or purpose, which translates to – The Light of the World! The shift from cause and effect to ‘Oneness’ filled my consciousness for the very first time. The physical senses stirred me the most; the ability to visualize ‘where I am’ to ‘where I’m going’, was a ‘High Five’ moment for sure.
And the final message came through with authority – Let Go/Surrender the old for the new. Ah yes, I am very familiar with the message. (Go to the Main Menu and read the Lessons on Surrender)
Believers do not carry their faith, faith is their wings. They will soar on wings like eagles; they will run and not grow weary. Ibrahim Emile
…they will fly!
