There is an energy in this universe, which manifests itself into all of our lives. The living energy of Grace. There are so many states of Grace. I will only touch on a few for now. Grace is channeled through us, permeates us, swirls around us, and is then extended from us, radiating outward. This is a universal channel of goodness, of caring that connects all things of energy. We are not constrained to accept this medium, nor are we forced to participate in its light. This is the actual life form of benevolence. This is a higher form of Life, of being. We do not earn grace, for it is freely given. From God, this life energy flows, not as a separate form of light, but as part of God’s Being. We are of God. We are of this light. Grace is inherent within us. We but only have to allow it to exist, to come forth.
Grace is movement and stillness. The Earth shows forth grace, as she extends kindness to man
with the allowance to use her resources. With love, she brings forth flowers, trees, oceans and mountains, not for her pleasure alone, but to lift the lives of man. Who knows how this energy feels, to see a child look with wonder and delight, on a field of dandelions. What is this connection with her we have, when we get overwhelmed with the beauty of her natural world? What joy does she feel when people sigh in relief to the welcome rain, after a long drought? Though it is God who brings forth form, the earth has an energy, she feels, she lives, not as humans do, but within her own energy dimension.
“Rain is grace; rain is the sky descending to the earth; without rain, there would be no life.”
Grace exists within humans in many forms. We have the lovely form of friendship, which exists between two people who will always love each other, and will give each other a safe harbor to just Be. No judgment of Spirit. Just unconditional love. This feeling resonates from our heart chakra, and radiates outward to surround our dear one with love, comfort, compassion and joy.
You cannot buy this Grace. You are blessed with it. It is a gift that comes from our highest source of light and love. True love between friends is strong. It is tempered like the finest steel, with tough life lessons, support in heartbreaks, and many tears. And yet, it is also strengthened by laughing until you cry, rejoicing found in new loves, new births, and perhaps, sometimes, inappropriate giggling…yes, energy shared in so many ways. A relationship that will last forever in love and faith. I am blessed with this lovely form of Grace, and I am humbly grateful.
There is a beautiful energy associated with forgiveness. There is a look of Grace in the
eye, the portrait of our spirit, which shows You Matter, our relationship is stronger, and more important, than the hurt caused when we have acted out of fear, or a moment of low energy.
There is a strengthening of Life Force or Energy associated with true forgiveness. True forgiveness does not mean keeping someone in your life who will harm you. It does mean looking beyond the earthly body of the person in front of you, and seeing the spirit who is here to learn a lesson. True forgiveness is not allowing a negative energy to be attached to yourself. All feelings are energy. If you want to hold on to feelings with a negative charge, this will cause harm to you, not to the person you are not forgiving. Allow the feelings to be released. Leave the negative energy, caused by the action of the person who has done the harm, with the person it belongs to. Allow them to learn what they came here to learn with their life lesson. We can make a conscious choice to forgive, and still not allow the person to be part of our life. This does not have to be forever. We are all learning all the time. Someone might just surprise you with a lot of growth, and understanding, making it possible to take some steps to reconciliation.
What about the energy of Grace, used when you go out of your way to help a stranger. You are not doing so because you have to. You are doing it because your energy
is coming from the area of your heart. You are allowing Grace to flow through you. You merge with this gift, when you perform acts of service, out of the generosity of Spirit. What a beautiful site it is, to see someone in the act of using the gift of grace, to comfort and uplift another. This can never be instilled within a machine. This love comes from the heart and energy of God. This shows our connection to the Divine. This proves we are connected to Divine Love.
This wonderful energy is so strong, so loving, it has no boundaries. Grace has no distance. You can love someone, and allow your Grace to surround them, even if you are on the other side of the world. This will be felt by those you allow your gift to surround. It will be able to touch them deeply. This is a gift of our eternal energy. Our true form.
It is not only humans that exhibit the gift of loving, through grace. Have you lived through a miraculous event, that for all extents and purposes, you should have died? We often have help from other realms, or dimensions, we don’t even realize we have had.
This reminds me of the four month old baby, who was trapped and lay helpless, for three days, in a pile of rubble in the city of Ishinomaki, Japan, after the devastating earthquakes and tsunami. What led the
Self-Defense worker to go to that area of the city, on that day?
How many Beings were around this little one, to comfort her and somehow sustain her little life?
How many whispers do we get that we are too busy to listen to? How many do we listen to, and have wonderful things come about in our lives, and we don’t even know to stop and give thanks? Perhaps we should give thanks every day for help unseen…
There is Grace in the beauty of dance. The feelings that encompass us, as we watch a dancer, merge with the energy of feelings, from communicating with a language unknown to most of us. This intercourse between Spirit, the realm of articulation through movement, and use of the human body, though we might not understand all of it, we do understand the feeling of beauty that touches our soul, as we look on.
In music we find, another form of Grace, which has the power to touch our souls. Grace can exist, as the quiet in between notes of music. What would music be without this softness, this hushed stillness? This beautiful state of grace has the power to lull us into a feeling of peace. Our bodies relax, as our soul expands with the joy only music can bring. Perhaps, a gift to remind us of other realms, other ways of communicating.
Our spirits long to hear this fluid energy, which swirls around us, weaving its way between thought and emotion. It can bring a sense of quiet and calmness to the most harried soul. It is what we use to sing our love, and reassurances to our babies…You are safe, You are cherished, You are wanted…
As humans, we have been given this great gift of the energy, of Grace. It is up to us to make the conscious decision; to live in what is referred to as, a State of Grace. When we allow ourselves to abide with the addition of this amazing source of energy, we become more forgiving, more tolerant, and less afraid of those we differ from. We keep in the forefront of our minds; we are spirits having an experience, of going to school on earth. We make the choice, of choosing to stay in control of these human minds, when we are confronted with someone who is coming from a place of fear. It is within our power, to choose to pay attention to our five senses, when we feel we are moving out of Grace. We will then bring our self into Now. Once we are in now, we can then use this human mind and brain, to pull forward reason. When we are in the state of Grace and Reason, we can then act out of love. We will see clearly the fear in the eyes, of the person distraught. Only then will we Act, and not React to life. May God bless us with courage, and peace of mind, to live with Grace under pressure.
“The world is not imperfect or slowly evolving along a path to perfection. No, it is perfect at every moment; every sin already carries grace in it.”
