In our daily lives we deal with schedules, deadlines, due dates, and the cost/benefit of various options. It is so very easy to get caught up in these worldly concerns. This happens because we focus attention on worldly appearances instead of turning to the Infinite nature within us.
Freedom, the real true and lasting freedom comes from the ability to see beyond the physical, visible level of life. There we come to know the truth of the message, “My kingdom is not of this world.” We are in the world but we are not of it, for Spirit is our true nature and real home. We are here to know that we are created by Spirit and can be fully conscious of that heritage and identity. To see beyond the visible and hear beyond the audible is to enter into the kingdom within where God abides in full.
This freedom comes through a conscious practice of entering into the Silence within and listening for the still, small voice that is ever saying, “Be still and know that I am God.”
God of heaven and earth, we give thanks that the Prodigal Child may return Home. Amen.
