Outpouring of Truth

August 15, 2012 0 Comments

A powerful word of Truth came to me this morning after meditating on my lesson for today in A Course in Miracles.  I sprung out of bed at 5:15 a.m. with excitement and expectancy.  It was like I knew something great was in store.  As I read through today’s lesson, what stood out most was the following statement:  Truth has a power far beyond defense, for no illusions can remain where truth has been allowed to enter.  And it comes to any mind that would lay down its arms, and cease to play with folly.  It is found at any time; today, if you will choose to practice giving welcome to the truth.  This is our aim today.  And we will give a quarter of an hour twice to ask the truth to come to us and set us free.  And truth will come, for it has never been apart from us.  It merely waits for just this invitation we give today

This is the Truth that came to me after meditation…

The Truth becomes perfectly clear when you release all attachment to the world of illusion. It is indeed possible to live IN the world while knowing you are not OF the world. You are eternal, and nothing in the world can threaten that. That is the key to lasting peace and joy. All fear is laid aside when this Truth sets us free. Freedom is always available for us to choose in each moment. The alternative is the misery that comes from believing this world is the “end all be all” of our existence. What are you choosing today?
I know that these words did not come from my ego-self.  This came from the Self that God created.  It was as if that one prayer (asking to receive the Truth) turned up the faucet to the flow of God through me.  It removed any blocks to the Word flowing freely to me in a way that I could receive in that very moment.  I tried it again later in the day and asked for the Spirit to speak through me as I sat down to write something I had been procrastinating on.  Not only did the language flow through me with ease, but it was WAY better than I imagined.  I thought it would take a long time to get it written.  Today I was shown that, if I stop being stubborn and ask to be used for God’s highest purpose through my words, God will give me the language speak to others hearts and minds through the Spirit.  It now doesn’t feel as daunting to complete this particular project that I intially envisioned would take years to complete. 
I had been praying to be a vessel for God to flow seamlessly through so that I may be a “space” for the healing of others.  I believe it, I receive it, and know that it is already done!  The signs I saw today were more proof that there is a power greater within me (not that I really needed any more proof, but I appreciate the kick in the butt!)- if I just surrender to it and stop trying to be in the driver’s seat myself, exactly what needs to be done in each moment will be done through me (with the Spirit right there to guide me).  I willingly surrender to the grace of God knowing that I will be guided to the best outlet for this outpouring of Love flowing through me.  So grateful for this beautiful lesson in Truth today!
Keep Shining!

About the Author:

I used to live life shackled by fear, doubt, and worry. I put on a happy face while navigating my day-to-day duties, but I was emotionally drained, stressed, and unhappy. When I hit rock bottom, and was diagnosed with depression and anxiety, I was determined to live life differently. I knew there had to be another way. Out of that determination, and guidance from Spirit, the "Living in the Light" blog was born. It documents my spiritual journey out of the darkness and into the Light. After nine months of publicly sharing my journey, and consciously releasing my attachment to the ego, I experienced a powerful spiritual awakening. I went from living in fear, doubt, worry, and stress to complete inner peace. My greatest passion has become assisting others on their own journey to inner peace. My spiritual memoir, From Stress to Peace: An Intimate Journal on the Journey from Living in Darkness to Living in the Light, is available now on Amazon and Click the tabs at the top of the page to learn more about the From Stress to Peace 21-Day Challenge, Living in the Light Retreats, 1:1 sessions, and the Living in the Light Community - all of which are designed to support your journey to inner peace. I appreciate you taking the time to visit the blog and look forward to supporting you in any way I can!
