In this Day 5 of the 40 Days Awakening Intensive we come together for a Light Vespers. A ‘vespers’ is known as an evening prayer. The Vespers meeting we already had but what I share with you is what you can use to contemplate or to deeply let this sink in, it is so amazing. From the Parenthesis in Eternity, by Joel S Goldsmith, a prayer in the chapter ‘The Mystical Marriage’.
I am the life of the grass; I am the life of the tree; I am the life of the ocean. I can look up from under the sea and see the sky, but at the same time I can look down from the sky and see the sea. I can look out from a tree and see the birds, and at the same time be the bird that is sitting on the branch of the tree. I am the life of all being.
I am consciously sitting on a star, or inside of a star, looking out at this world, while at the same time looking up from the ground at the star. I am the life of the stone, and at the same time I am looking up from the ground at the stone. I am here, and I am there, and I am everywhere: I permeate all creation. I can see in every direction at once, and always as if my Selfhood were centered in fust one tiny spot, and yet in every spot at the same moment. I am the life of every person around me. I amJoel S.
