I CAN BECAUSE I AM: Week 31 Day 6 of the 2015 Meditation Challenge

C39“Meditation on God’s handiwork is one way
of bringing the soul-facilities into active expression
and of understanding the higher wisdom.
We must learn to look not only at sunsets,
gardens, or by beautiful appearance,
but to look beyond them
and catch a glimpse of that which
brought them into expression.”
Joel Goldsmith, from The Art of Meditation
When we stop and listen to our lives, when we still ourselves long enough to stop the chatter and go within,
when we find ourselves pressed against sickness or despair or longing or worry or fear,
when we dig deep enough through a run, or a chant, or a yoga posture
where the only thing we have to hold onto is the breath of Spirit,
we can finally hear the conversations that we have with ourselves.
And what are they?
When we really slow down and listen, what are we really telling ourselves?
I can’t.  We say that we can’t, but the universe’s blessing to us is
that despite our lack of confidence, or our pride, or our doubt,
or our fear, or our need to protect ourselves . . . we can.
Not only can we – we are.
Because through God’s amazing grace, we are.
The sweetest most honest, most deliberate, most engaging sound
is the silence, the amazing grace of silence listening
and speaking us all at once:
silence is the sound of grace,
how sweet the sound that tells us that we can.

I once was lost but now am found, was blind, but now I see.

How precious did that Grace appear the hour I first believed.

When we’ve been here ten thousand years bright shining as the sun.
We’ve no less days to sing God’s praise than when we’ve first begun.
C46We are amazing because we are.
I am amazing because I AM.  I AM and I can.
I am amazing because I am.  I AM and I can.
I am amazing because I AM.  I AM and I can.
