A perfect heart is a consideration that touches my heart. As I think about this I am moved to simply still my heart and mind. I am moved to come to rest in this moment that I may know more what this actually means. I find this is something that cannot be forced. As I pause in this way my soul is filled with what it means to have a perfect heart. I can feel a deep sense of gratefulness. Here I am in awe of allowing a perfect heart be set within my soul. Here I realize more what it means to walk within my house with a perfect heart. May my meditations open up your heart in knowing a deep sense of peace and gratefulness also.
LET THE FIELD BE JOYFUL, AND ALL THAT THEREIN: THEN SHALL ALL THE TREES OF THE WOOD REJOICE
In the central current of love there is a sensing of a responsibility beyond ourselves. Here we see the central and simple responsibility to keep our field joyful in order for all dependent upon our field to rejoice. Our field is emanated through our physical forms generated from what we are experiencing mentally and emotionally. We do have a choice in the matter to choose attitudes that emanate peace, forgiveness, largeness, understanding, care, compassion, love and all such accordingly. I for one and I sense many can relate to having a responsibility to the trees on the face of the earth. That our expression can give what the trees need from us in return for all they give to us. Let’s remember our crowning creation responsibility to the trees and really all the living world.
WHEN I SAID, MY FOOT SLIPPETH; THY MERCY, O LORD, HELD ME UP
How many times even in a day do we catch ourselves realizing the miss steps we may have taken? In recognizing this it leads me to acknowledge that there is something larger holding my life up as well as the larger world in general. At the same time this awareness brings a respect for the wonderful animating force that is causing all things to be. Having a sense that there has been the forces of God holding me up it makes also think how merciful this force is. As I do give acknowledgement of it a sense of gratitude comes over me and a reaffirmation to be true to it, to not take its mercy lightly nor to expect it if and when I do make a mistake. I realize I am not entitled to it and it only can be received as I am interested to live in my highest integrity. Here the mercy of the Lord can be received. To the degree we are not putting God first the mercy of the Lord is diverted from filling our circumstances. Let’s learn to put God fully first which allows His mercy to fill us to overflowing which in turn mercy is extended through us to all in our world. Here we are held in our place as well as playing our parts in holding up the world.
