Christ Ascended 2/5

April 30, 2017 // 0 Comments

It takes a good deal of silent meditation, a good deal of silent wrangling with your own former beliefs, until you reach that place within your own consciousness where you know that God is closer to you than breathing and nearer than hands and feet, and that you can sit there in quietness and in confidence and be assured the kingdom of God is closer to me than breathing; it is where I am.
