The Contemplative Companion for Wednesday, May 6, 2015

“Now those who had been scattered went about preaching the word.” – Acts 8: 1b-8

Wherever God’s Word and silence will bloom me into deeper beauty, wisdom and goodness –  there I am truly alive.

The Contemplative Companion for Tuesday, May 5, 2015

“So Jesus said to them, “Amen, amen, I say to you, it was not Moses who gave the bread from heaven. For the bread of God is that which comes down from heaven and gives life to the world. So they said to Jesus, “Sir, give us this bread always.” Jesus said to them, “I am the bread of life; whoever comes to me will never hunger, and whoever believes in me will never thirst.” – John 6:30-35

Fed by the presence of love, I discover a taste that helps me remember my Way back home.

Deep down amid the loneliness, weeping by the river of brokenness, a silence rises and speaks my name, saying:

Situations, events, problems, rise and fall, yet I Am with you, unmovable. What is the “I” in you that feels that emotion? That thinks that thought? Why do you believe it so? Believe me, hiding beneath that I and every other I that takes your birthright from you in the chimera called life and suffering.

The Contemplative Companion for Monday, May 4, 2015

“The Advocate, the Holy Spirit whom the Father will send in my name— he will teach you everything
and remind you of all that I told you.” – John 14.26

I greet this first Monday of May with the wish to be filled with Grace that leads to miracles of love.

In recognizing I am an embodied vessel of Spirit, I discover joy in the giving and gratitude in the receiving.

Despite distance, dollars, difficulties or detours anything is possible in the power of Grace – including giving myself away in love, for love, with love, to love, as love.

The Contemplative Companion for Friday, May 1, 2015

“Jesus said to his disciples: ‘Do not let your hearts be troubled.’”  – John 14.1

Remembering my wish at the beginning of this week for soul-growth, I ponder at the close of this work week the reality of divine presence comforting me along the narrow places of friction that call for deeper faith. I recognize these narrow places are soul-strengthening moments, passages into a more awake paradise where my joy is complete.

The Contemplative Companion for Thursday, April 30, 2015

“For you have said, “My kindness is established forever”; in heaven you have confirmed your faithfulness.” – Psalm 89.3

Above me, I remember, is help. In the form of kindness it reveals itself. In the form of faithfulness, it attends me. I wish to do likewise to my brothers and sisters, co-laboring with me on this most uniquely positioned planet.

The Contemplative Companion for Wednesday, April 29, 2015

“I came into the world as light, so that everyone who believes in me might not remain in darkness.” – John 12.46

Nothing is too dark for the light. I wish to be awakened more from the slumber of my will, so to believe and in believing, understand.

“The Father and I are one.”  – John 10.30

I wish to discover the depth of this oneness. To ponder its boundaries and expansion in my life. Can I remember this mystery amidst the movement of my day? Yes, I wish to.
