The Contemplative Companion for Monday, July 28, 2014

My life is a tree, a standing silence in the wordless sky.

Grounded simply in the fullness of earth.

Growing full in the love of light radiating from those who attend with me through the forest of life.

It’s the company i keep, the companions of heart who surprise me the most, alighting among the branches of my days like song birds, gazing eye to eye, perhaps departing too soon.

i stretch forth, through the times and movements of days, years, storms, quiet summer days and star filled nights.

If i could move, it would only be closer. If  i could go, it would only  be deeper. If i could reach, it would only be toward the company of Beings my roots now touch and intertwine.

My life is a tree, a standing declaration in the wordless sky -

i once was just a seed, but i’ve become a canopy of love;

a living sanctuary of shared breath;

 a house of words in which you may dwell;

a wooden cross  to carry you through a lifetime.

The Contemplative Companion for Friday, July 25, 2014

Can I feel this treasure more deeply within me today?

Can I awake to its presence in my life, holding me no matter what I think, feel, do or say?

I wish to remember this hidden treasure of consciousness infused by the Holy Spirit in the Temple of my Essence, ever connected to the Image and Likeness of God, becoming more Real in form and function in and as Christ.

“Brothers and sisters: We hold this treasure in earthen vessels, that this surpassing power may be of God and not from us.” – 2 Corinthians 4.7

The Contemplative Companion for Thursday, July 24, 2014

The depth and fullness of divine mercy hold my life through life difficulties and storms, reminding me I am Not that which I observe about myself or about my situation. Such inner freedom is precious.

“How precious is your mercy, O God!” – Psalm 36.8

The Contemplative Companion for Wednesday, July 23, 2014

Beneath my fragmented personality, I see a pristine wholeness – a place of peace untouched by my lifetime of choices and desires.

A Real Center in Christ that has always been destined for love.

Perhaps today, Grace will bring it a little more forth into my way of Being in the world.

 

“Before I formed you in the womb I knew you, before you were born I dedicated you, a prophet to the nations I appointed you.” – Jeremiah 1.1

The Contemplative Companion for Tuesday, July 22, 2014

I wish to grow in Understanding so to discover and discern ever deeper levels of meaning – in life, in scripture, in Eucharist, in others, in everything.

“Mary Magdalene went and announced to the disciples, “I have seen the Lord.” – John 20.18

Oneness, Union with God and Spiritual Evolution – A Sermon by Peter Traben Haas

In this seventh sermon in the “Feel the Spirit” series, Peter uses the vision of the Prophet Joel recorded in Joel chapter 2.2 – 31  to explore the Christian spiritual journey toward Oneness and the “Crown Chakra” as a symbol of our Union with God.
