OUR SURRENDER TO GOD CAN NEVER BE A SINGLE AND IRREVERSIBLE MOMENT. THE TRUTH OF OUR SPIRITUAL PILGRIMAGE IS THAT WE ENTER A MYSTICALLY UNDULATING AND MEANDERING VORTEX OF SACREDNESS. THAT IS THE TRUTH OF THE SPIRITUAL QUEST, THE SPIRITUAL JOURNEY TO THE HEART CENTRE OF OURSELVES AND THE HEART CENTRE OF GOD, THE UNIVERSE AND THE ALL THAT IS ONE. SUCH IS THE TRIBULATIONS AND ULTIMATELY THE JOY OF OUR SPIRITUAL BECOMING AND UNFOLDING.
Is there anything in this extraordinary creation, in this vast and seemingly limitless universe that cannot draw us to the infinite? We might categorize and analyse everything we encounter. We might thereby think that we know those things. But look at this seashore, with its calm waters and mesmeric rocks. Look at the starry sky and the splendour of the Milky Way: our Galaxy in which our precious Mother Earth, our Gaia has Her all but eternal place and home. We can analyse and categorize, but if we would but still our minds, we would at last sense the infinity and eternity of creation deep within us. Breathe deep, still the mind, and sense at last the sacredness of all of creation, including of course ourselves. Our lives might appear to us to be mundane, but they are not. We are all upon a sacred and spiritual quest: a quest that takes us deep into ourselves and deep into the sacred and spiritually awakening reality of our purpose. Our lives might appear to us as mundane and indeed often troubled, but there is meaning in every moment of our lives – sacred meaning – that forever transcends the mundane.
Breathe deeply in the deep of the eternal reality that is ourselves, and that is everything around us. We walk within a great spiritual ONENESS that touches us and embraces us with love every moment of our lives. We might think that we do not fight dragons. But we ride them instead: out towards the infinity of the stars.
Breathe deeply, know the spiritual journey and quest we are on, and know too that our Holy Mother Earth is within our care. We are on a sacred journey. We must touch and embrace everything with our sacredness. Then shall our Mother Earth, our Gaia be healed, and us with Her.
There can be no one moment of ‘surrender’ to God. There can be that initiating, exploratory moment of surrender to the path, to the dream, but that can only be the beginning of our journey to God, not the end. In fact, once on the path we do not put our struggles behind us, we in fact face greater struggles, of greater import. We face the tempering and the refining of our inner spirit. The path is a quest, of Grail-like proportions. The path is steep and tortuous. Our adversaries are terrible and are entirely of our own making. We face truths with regards to ourselves, and those are the truths most horrible to contemplate. But the path that is constituted by our surrender to God is the only path that does not lead endlessly to nowhere. It is a path with a destination of wonder that we all shall one day take. Name God how we will. The path is there for us all. The Quest is for us all. God has no name, but God is the ONENESS that we are always part of and shall one day know.
The eternal is infinite. We should never imagine that our spiritual quest, our mystical and scared pilgrimage to the ONENESS that is our ONENESS with the ALL, with God, is forever eternal and is forever infinite. The meaning of our lives is bound up in the spiritual awakening of our lives and everyone’s lives. The meaning of our lives is likewise bound up in the unfolding of our spiritual awareness of, and spiritual responsibility towards, our Mother Earth, our Holy Gaia. These are not short-term spiritual commitments, they are long term, and in themselves are eternal and infinite. We are caught in an extraordinary mystical and sacred saga that involves us as individuals and us as humanity. And there is no cure for the spiritual malaise of our times. There is, instead, healing, and healing, be it physical, mental, or spiritual is a process that will always involve time and deep inner commitment. The entirety of our lives, as individuals and as humanity as a whole, is a long and extraordinary pilgrimage towards mystical transcendence, towards the great and sacred spiritual awakening of us ALL. Likewise, the love we have for each other and for our Mother Earth, our Holy Gaia, is our mystical and sacred destiny, and cannot be achieved in a moment’s revelation. Our spiritual journey is long and arduous, and because it is, it is also profound and glorious and as spiritually significant and as mystically wonderful as the very unfoldment of the cosmos itself. ALL is ONE. As above, so below. These are the great spiritual truths of our existences, of our mystical pilgrimages, of our spiritual journeys back to our birth-home with the ONE, with God.
Meditate on these matters, feel and live and be the infinite eternity that is US, that is the TRUTH of the ALL, that is our purpose and meaning and destiny.
