We have been told:
- Everyone has the Buddha within. Siddhārtha Gautama 550BC
- Nor will they say “Look here” or Look there” for the kingdom of God is within you. Luke 17:21
- We found the Great Reality deep down within. In the final analysis, it was only there that He may be found. (AA Big Book 3rd Ed.)
- Every human being has a “fragment of God” within—and a birthright to claim this spiritual force. (Urantia Book)
Each of us has been given a direct link to the creator of the universe; however, activating and using this connection is wholly dependent on the individual’s choice and actions. Our power of choice is the supreme and sovereign power in the universe. We can choose to reject this wonderful guide and energy; we can superficially accept it as an idea that has some merit, allowing it to “sometimes” contribute to our life; or, we may fully embrace this great reality. It’s our choice and the rewards reaped in this life, the quality of this life, directly depend on this decision and the subsequent action to open the channel that allows this life-changing power to flow into our life.
Prayer: my loving, compassionate inner spirit, my friend who wants only the best for me, help me aware of your existence in my heart, mind and soul this day ; awaken me to the reality of your presence, power, and love. Help me to choose and act so that I may flourish, prosper and grow according to your plan and be a living testimony of the power and love of God abroad in this universe.
Take three relaxing breaths; ask your inner spirit to guide your meditation; reflect on the content, pausing for a few minutes in silence.
