10 Steps From Angst To The Stillness Within


10 Steps  From Angst To The Stillness Within
10 steps from conflicted angst to authentic honesty, humility and self compassion, inside and out.

8. In the Stillness the Understanding arose that we were each doing the best we know how. If we knew how to do it better, we would.

9. The deeper Context was revealed. We were both humbled by the lesson/opportunity God was giving each of us. We were each given the strength and humility to surrendered to our own humanity with self-forgiveness and compassion for each other and ourselves. The truth was revealed that we were each doing the very best we knew how in our mutual ignorance/ innocence.


10. Once again we were able to be fully authentic, hear what mattered most to each other. Together in the larger context we both wanting the highest good for each other and ourselves. Each of our personal positions and perspectives gave way to accepting what life was creating between us, even as we were far from clear what that was in actuality. We each found our way to surrender to the larger Will of Life itself.

I know that the inner voices of false identity would never have allowed me to find that place of mutuality. It was the desire and intention of my True Self to listen deeply in Silent Prayer to the Stillness Within, that opened me, prepared me for this valuable lesson of having the courage to be authentic, to speak my need and concern, to have the faith in the process of honesty, humility, compassion, and forgiveness.

Holy Spirit, The Sacred Heart, or whatever words we wish to put on the Presence and Consciousness of Creative Life Within, found in the Inner Stillness, came through and moved reality into a different and more expanded plane of being.

Could it be that all that is going on in the world is just offering us the lesson of the grace and wisdom found in the Stillness of Prayerful Listening: humility, authenticity, integrity, forgiveness and compassion?

This whole experiential process will be explored deeply in my upcoming Spiritual Deepening Rest Stop.

The Experience Of Consciousness


This morning soon after I awakened, I was experiencing my consciousness. It felt like what Meister Eckhart described as the EYE with which I see God and God sees me, being the same EYE. I used to wonder what that meant. Now when there is a relaxed state of being conscious of consciousness itself, there is a shift. The awareness is not identified as me. It ... Read more

Rediscovering Divine Love


As I sat down to "work" this morning at my computer, I became aware that I felt unfulfilled. I was less than joyfully serene. Life felt like it required an effort. I know it doesn't need to be like that. I know what it is like to feel carried through life, but that wasn't happening, and I wondered what I needed to do to make it happen. I ... Read more
