The Contemplative Companion for Wednesday, August 20, 2014

“Only goodness and kindness will follow me all the days of my life; And I shall dwell in the house of God for years to come.” – Psalm 23.6

Aware of my needs and demands for security, I welcome the promise and wisdom that the Work will find a way, and that I can simply ask for help.

Aligned with these truths, I will dwell in the real safety of Being, regardless of any external situation occurring.

The Contemplative Companion for Tuesday, August 19, 2014

“When the disciples heard this, they were greatly astonished and said, “Who then can be saved?” – Matthew 19.24
As I observe different aspects of myself arising in the flow of relationships and responsibilities, I wish to remember that my salvation isn’t in changing myself or someone else, but in letting the light of Christ do the Work in me on my behalf, bringing to my heart a new song of astonishment.

The Contemplative Companion for Monday, August 18, 2014

“The word of God came to me: Son of man, by a sudden blow I am taking away from you the delight of your eyes, but do not mourn or weep or shed any tears. Groan in silence…” – Ezekiel 24.15

Today I remember that my interior construction of self, including the shadows of fear and anger, are loved by God. This love expresses itself from time to time as a deconstruction, tearing down the inner architecture I have built to protect myself from perceived threats, shames and the vicissitudes of life. As the walls crumble away in the Light, I wish to discover the joy of simply Being, otherwise called true freedom.

The Contemplative Companion for Friday, August 15, 2014

 “My soul proclaims the greatness of the Lord; my spirit rejoices in God my Savior for he has looked with favor on his lowly servant. From this day all generations will call me blessed.” – Luke 1. 46 – 48 

The path of humility is revealed to me through the pattern of Mary’s Yes to be a vessel of grace. I wish to feel the strength of this path, connected to all the beings of the Way who have left a mark for me to follow.

The Contemplative Companion for Thursday, August 14, 2014

“Lord, if my brother sins against me, how often must I forgive him? As many as seven times?” Jesus answered, “I say to you, not seven times but seventy-seven times.”  – Matthew 18.21 – 22 

Through my relationships I discover the edge of my being, where I am invited to bear more deeply into the patience of love and the grace of giving with no expectation of getting something in return.

“For where two or three are gathered together in my name, there am I in the midst of them.” – Matthew 18.20 

Aware that grace makes miracles out of broken things,I receive the torn bread of Christ as light for the darkness, with no need to change my situation since I’m saying Yes to it changing me.

The Contemplative Companion for Tuesday, August 12, 2014

“He said to me: Son of man, eat what is before you; eat this scroll, then go, speak to the house of Israel. So I opened my mouth and he gave me the scroll to eat…I ate it, and it was as sweet as honey in my mouth. He said: Son of man, go now to the house of Israel.” – Ezekiel 3.2–4 

Today, I wish to become more aware of the influences that are shaping my thoughts and feelings.

In the silence of my surrender to the Presence of Christ, may my open mind and heart be nourished by the Wisdom, Word and Work of God.
