Day 27: God Is On The Scene

And I continue that form of quiet, inner, peaceful contemplation
until I arrive at a place where no more thoughts come,
and then I just sit there quietly for a few minutes.
And my treatment or prayer is ended.
Usually it ends with that deep breath
coming to me to let me know that it’s over,
and God is on the scene.

Meditation 27
Day 27: God Is On The Scene

Contemplative prayer or contemplative meditation,
and you may also call it treatment,
whenever I find it necessary to treat,
that is the form of my treatment.
I will sit down,
take whatever problem you’ve given me,
and drop it in my wastebasket.
And then I turn to God,
and I begin to contemplate God:
God is one,
God is law,
God is individual being,
God is the only life,
God as divine Presence,
God as Omnipresence,
God as Omnipotence,
God as the all-knowing mind and the divine love of the Universe.

And I continue that form of quiet, inner, peaceful contemplation
until I arrive at a place where no more thoughts come,
and then I just sit there quietly for a few minutes.
And my treatment or prayer is ended.
Usually it ends with that deep breath
coming to me to let me know that it’s over,
and God is on the scene.
But, even if it doesn’t, it makes no difference.

How To Heal, 1958, Joel S. Goldsmith
