Psalm 4 Change Your Thinking

Despite the fact that we know what Truth is intellectually, we have thoughts within the subconscious and unconscious (people) that surface and create confusion in our minds (love vain words, seek after lies). We become distracted by negative thoughts and feelings, but know that God hears us. When we become mired in negative thinking, it is critical to stop and reconnect with our faith and knowledge that God is with us at all times. Spirit is our anchor in our search for Truth and the process of regenerating attitudes (Answer me when I call, O God of my right; Be gracious to me, and hear my prayer). Faithfulness creates order in our lives because rather than fighting the flow of Spirit we surrender our will to It.

Psalm 133 Oneness

When we begin to understand our spiritual heritage, our entire perspective is changed forever. The commonwealth of God is only experienced from the perspective of unity. It is godly (good) to recognize and embrace the oneness of all things (live together in unity). Because we are all of God, we are all one. Spiritual consciousness is the recognition and experience of unity, the oneness of everything and everybody in God. From the unified perspective nothing but love exists, for we are all God and we are all one.

Psalm 118 Resurrection

We celebrate the resurrection of the Christ this week. This triumphant story has a profound connection to our own walk with God.  Death is an important part of our spiritual life.  In order to know God, we must die to what we think we know so that we are available to God's revelation. The creative power of God (right hand) raises us up and out of the confusion of the world. If we open our hearts and minds, Spirit can show us the straight and narrow path (open to me the gates of righteousness), the way to our inner Christ. Only when we surrender our lives to God can we enter into our spiritual domain.

Psalm 118 Death

Do you respond to the idea of death, with resistance or acceptance? The dramatic stories of the holy week in the Jewish and Christian traditions remind us that we must be willing to face death directly in order experience salvation. Are you in tune with the small deaths that you are confronted with daily? As spiritual seekers, we must die day-by-day to our attachments to the world.
