An excerpt from 365 Blessings to Heal Myself and the World
Jesus told us that unless we became as little children, we would not enter the “Kingdom,” which of course is not a place, but a state of the consciousness of unconditional love and infinite contentment. Children are usually trustful by nature. Let us also learn from them to trust.
“Fear not, little flock, it is your Father’s good pleasure to give you the Kingdom,” the same Friend told us.
The Bible tells us much more.
May we see that it does not have to be earned by virtuous living, good deeds or stringent discipline. May we rest deeply in the understanding that this gift is totally free. Just as the shepherd does not demand that his sheep produce good wool before leading them to the green pastures, may we relax totally in the understanding that the kingdom is ours by divine birthright — because it is already in us. Let go and let God.
May we trust in the promise of constant guidance because Divine Love whispers to us, “I (infinite Love) will hold your hand and will keep you.”
May we never fear for our daily bread but trust in the promise of infinite abundance provided by the Source of all good which tells us, “Prove me now herewith, if I will not open you the windows of heaven and pour you out a blessing that there shall not be room enough to receive it.”
May we rest in the certainty of constant protection following the promise that “You, omnipotent Love, truly do protect me from behind, in front of me and You rest your hand upon me.”
When we are (I am) hit with full force by tempest, trial or tsunami, may I know that I need not fear, because: “You sent from above, You took me, You brought me forth into a large place, You delivered me because You delighted in me.”
And when the most grueling inner trial knocks me into the dungeon of despair and doubt, may I be reminded that all things (every single trial) will ultimately turn out to be a blessing.
May we trust the divine insight of the Master who told us that even the hairs of our head were counted, i.e. that an infinite Intelligence beyond all comprehension governs absolutely all, from the tiniest mental molecule to the rolling of the galaxies — which, somewhere in between, includes us too!
