Seeing the Bigger Picture

Infinite Divine Life, Mother-Father God, dear sweet Spirit.  Right here and right now I take this moment and feel the presence of the One Life that is the all in all, the absolute Realty of my life.  I breathe in this Presence and feel and experience the calming center of my very being.  I close my eyes and see with my inner vision the wholeness and perfection that is my birthright.  I am awash in the sense of well being, and I know that this in itself is a true gift.  Allowing this calmness to settle over me, around me, and through me, I release any sense of struggle that I might be undergoing in my human experience.  I acknowledge that although the effects of my life might, at times, appear to be unsettled, or clouded with fear, doubt or worry, I choose now to simply put my trust in the greater expression of the One Life.  In so doing, I surrender my fear, I relinquish my doubt, and I set aside any sense of anxiety, and look instead at the bigger picture of God’s wholeness and perfection.  Through this perspective I know that all is well in God’s absolute reality of Wholeness, Perfection, and Goodness.  Armed with the knowledge of the innate perfection of the central core of Life Itself, I proceed through the peaks as well as the valleys of life, as I remain focused on the idea of this goodness as my central element.  In this place of calmness I am filled with a sense of peace.  I live, move, and breathe through the grace of God and it fills me with joy.  Now is the time to rejoice in life.  Now is the time to see through the eyes of God to the beauty of each and every day – to find the good in each situation, to look at each person and feel our connection one to another through our experience of the One Life.  My heart sings with gladness!  Thank you dear Spirit, for this picture of wholeness, as I proceed along the experience of the greater life.  And so it is.
