“All is calm. All is bright…” The heralding in of a new year on the heels of what is regarded as the most universally celebrated holidays of the year is a time of great reflection for many. Beyond the commercial aspects, beyond the pageantry, and familial hoopla is the soul’s call for a silent night.
In the serene predawn hours, we awaken. A mysterious restlessness fills our being as we search our thoughts for an explanation for the interruption. Our lives flash before our eyes, the residue of past regrets whispering recrimination or perhaps a recent victory causing a smile to retrace the lips.
Then comes along a welcome but unspoken invitation to release the tension in our body through the acceptance of this moment. The call infinitely extended by our soul seems most loudly trumpeted when the rest of the world is hushed. But what is the invitation and why does its beacon eternally issue forth?
In every present moment, you are being offered paradise. No conditions must be pre-met, there is no expiration date, no line, no waiting, and no place to go. This is unfathomable to most humans. Thus, the guiding light is embodied within each one of us so that we are never truly lost. The realization of paradise occurs when we honor the temples with which Creation has proffered to hold Christ consciousness in the relative world.
THE THREE TEMPLES
Your Mind is the temple of consciousness, the co-creative power of God. Honor the power of the mind by accepting its contents without judgment. Allow consciousness to move through you without identification, gratitude the song of your heart. Individual consciousness holds an inimitable resonance as part of the Infinite. Let your unique song be your conductor and your brilliance.
Your Body is the temple of the corporeal expression of the co-creative power of God. Your physical Being, along with the living organism and Being called Earth, are Christ Consciousness incarnate. As a sovereign Being, you are fully equipped to live freely and abundantly in unity with Earth. Honor the body by remaining in awe and wonder at paradise before you. Let every action mirror the reciprocate generosity extended between all Beings.
Your Soul is the temple of all that is invisible, beyond the senses of mind and body on a worldly level. The soul is the templeless temple beyond all words, beyond all concepts and beyond all expression as the Absolute. We honor the soul in silent reverence in its stillness, for its call is not one of hope or of faith or even one of promise. The call of the soul is Grace personified.
Grace is both the offering and the gift, the two remaining ONE, as the return home and utopia itself. Grace is not supplied by an outside source, rather, you ARE Grace. You are the Holy Trinity of Mind, Body and Soul. You are the beacon of light. You are the ONE.
