I rely on my own Loving Presence to lead and guide me toward the meaning of healing. Seeking the meaning of healing frames all my activity and gives context to all my interactions. Though I may encounter disturbances throughout daily activity, I lay them at the feet of my own Loving Presence and continue to ask, “What is healing?” My own Loving Presence directs me as I listen in the stillness.
The line, “as I listen in the stillness” returned me to the memory of the cavern from yesterday. Although a bit distracted today, that image and feeling from yesterday reeled me in, grounded me in the Guiding Thought today. I see now how it is my own Loving Presence that is the fullness within the vast emptiness of the cavern.
I am more accustomed now to the feeling of “reverberation” within the stillness seeming to be a sort of communication. “Listening” now means something more like “tapping into the reverberation”. And I note that I must rely on something other than my physical senses to understand the responses. I also try to shift my questions, shift my focus to “match” the reverberation of the response. I don’t even know if that makes any sense.
It’s like if I ask in my head, with words and thoughts and intellectual questions, I get one kind of response. If I ask in my heart, tapping into my emotions, I get a different kind of response. If I sit in the stillness, without trying to ask, and just feel, I get a response to a question I haven’t asked, but it’s exactly the answer. In that space of stillness, where emptiness is fullness, the answer is the question, the question is the answer—seeking is finding. All I have to do is pay attention in that moment, allowing it to permeate me without trying to understand (intellectualize).
“Seeking the meaning of healing frames all my activity and gives context to all my interactions” now means that with every interaction I am finding the meaning of healing. In all my activity, in every context, if I simply pay attention in the moment, let the emptiness fill and permeate me, the activity is the answer, the context is the healing.
