“If you’re meditating and
realize your mind has been wandering,
laugh at it and pull your focus back
to your breath or mantra.
Every time you replace judgment
with a return to being present right now,
you get better at keeping your mouth
from drifting away from your control.”
In John 12:25, Jesus says “he who loves his life will lose it, and he who hates his life in this world will keep it for eternal life.” Losing our lives is being courageous enough to turn everything over to God, realizing that every aspect of our being that trusts in God is cured, is made whole, is liberated from fear, is one with eternity. I love my life and with my faith of love, I give my life to God. In the moment that I surrender, I am freed. The moment that I surrender, I succeed to a success that has no imitation. The moment that I surrender, I see love lifting me out of the doldrums of existence. I feel love ignite in me a new understanding of being one with the universe. I become one with the image and likeness of Spirit being me.
Today I lose my life in a faith that only knows God.
