Wide Open #11/2014

After I wrote the last blog, Still Waiting?, I felt a tremendous shift within myself. We teach what we most need to learn, and I was finally letting the truth of my Oneness with God seep into my consciousness. Feeling high on life, I was suddenly prompted to turn on the radio. The song, With Arms Wide Open, by Creed, was playing. The first lyrics I heard were very symbolic, not only of God speaking to me, but of what God wants to say through me to you. Once you open to the possibility that you could be One with God, He welcomes you home with arms wide open.

With arms wide open under the sunlight
Welcome to this place I’ll show you everything
With arms wide open now everything has changed
I’ll show you love I’ll show you everything
With arms wide open                         

With arms wide open I’ll show you everything,
aw yeah With arms wide open, wide open

Songwriters  Tremonti, Mark/ Stapp, Scott

Are you still waiting for God to speak to you? To comfort you? Love you? Guide you? Perhaps, even reveal Himself to you? Do you expect it to happen on some imaginary future date? Are you expecting drumrolls and fanfare? A moment of “truth”?

The truth is, God isn’t speaking TO you. He is speaking THROUGH YOU! A Course in Miracles says, “There is no time, no place, no state where God is absent. There is nothing to be feared. There is no way in which a gap could be conceived of in the Wholeness that is His.”

God IS.

There is nothing else.

We cannot possibly be separate from Him.

So, the next time you are waiting for answers about what to think, do, or say, about how to BE, stop and ask yourself, What would God (LOVE) do right now? Then . . .

do that.

Let your spirit soar!

In an old Star Trek the Next Generation episode, there is a scene where the character, Deanna Troy (who plays the wise counselor on the spaceship), along with two other characters, are forcefully thrown onto their backs as the result of an explosion. In a documentary about the show, Marina Sirtis, who plays Deanna, tells how she insisted on playing her own character in the scene, rather than using a stunt person. She relates how she broke her tailbone as a result of the fall and how painful it was. Later, when she saw the scene played out on film, she discovered that the three characters were so tiny in relation to their surroundings, that you could hardly even tell who they were! She went through a lot of pain for nothing.

I think we are a lot like Marina. Instead of being happy with our Oneness with God, we decided that we need to prove ourselves – to break out and play our own individual roles, our own characters. As a result of our imagined “fall” from God, we have each experienced a lot of pain. As we become more spiritually aware and learn to step back and watch the “movie” we think we are starring in, we begin to see how tiny, fragile, and indistinct we are as individuals. We will finally remember that our true power and joy comes from our Oneness with God, not from our separate roles.
