Let me be still and listen to the truth

Be still and know that I’m God. That’s one of the best lesson’s in life. When we put the monkey mind to sleep we allow the truth to come out – we allow peace, love and joy which are there all the time show themselves.

Be still and know that I’m God… Many mystics believe that this biblical statement also refers to the burning bush and Moses asking God for a name. God eventually says,  “I am that which I am.” Moses does not understand and eventually asks what should I say your name is so your people will know you sent me and eventually God says tell them I am sent you.

This means that I am (consciousness or being) is the Divinity.

Either way when you enter the stillness state and let go of all the internal dialogue of doubt, past, and negativity you get to the inner peace, love and compassion.

From ACIM workbook for today:

If you will lay aside the ego’s voice, however loudly it may seem to call; if you will not accept its petty gifts that give you nothing that you really want; if you will listen with an open mind, that has not told you what salvation is; then you will hear the mighty Voice of truth, quiet in power, strong in stillness, and completely certain in Its messages.

Listen, and hear your Father speak to you through His appointed Voice, which silences the thunder of the meaningless, and shows the way to peace to those who cannot see. Be still today and listen to the truth. Be not deceived by voices of the dead, which tell you they have found the source of life and offer it to you for your belief. Attend them not, but listen to the truth.

Today the promise of God’s Word is kept. Hear and be silent…

Hear Him today, and listen to the Word which lifts the veil that lies upon the earth, and wakes all those who sleep and cannot see. God calls to them through you…

Be ready for salvation. It is here, and will today be given unto you. And you will learn your function from the One Who chose it in your Father’s Name for you. Listen today, and you will hear a Voice which will resound throughout the world through you. The bringer of all miracles has need that you receive them first, and thus become the joyous giver of what you received.

Thus does salvation start and thus it ends; when everything is yours and everything is given away, it will remain with you forever. And the lesson has been learned. Today we practice giving, not the way you understand it now, but as it is. Each hour’s exercises should begin with this request for your enlightenment:

I will be still and listen to the truth.
What does it mean to give and to receive?

Ask and expect an answer. Your request is one whose answer has been waiting long to be received by you. It will begin the ministry for which you came, and which will free the world from thinking giving is a way to lose. And so the world becomes ready to understand and to receive.

Be still and listen to the truth today. For each five minutes spent in listening, a thousand minds are opened to the truth and they will hear the holy Word you hear. And when the hour is past, you will again release a thousand more who pause to ask that truth be given them, along with you.

Today the holy Word of God is kept through your receiving it to give away, so you can teach the world what giving means by listening and learning it of Him. Do not forget today to reinforce your choice to hear and to receive the Word by this reminder, given to yourself as often as is possible today:

Let me be still and listen to the truth.
I am the messenger of God today,
My voice is His, to give what I receive.

Today is Saint Valentine’s day. He was a person who loved unconditionally. He was a person of peace and compassion…

The message for today is an image:

A dark room full of junk.
As the junk is moved out the windows clear out and allow the sunshine in.

I suppose the image is the same as Plato’s cave.
The light is there all the time. You can never get rid of it.
As the thought for today say, be still and the light of love pours in on its own accord.

Actually I suppose you need the right type of stillness and the ACIM workbook will get you there one step at a time – one day at a time.

Where I am today is a state of peace and love especially when I do my daily practices from ACIM.
