[Humankind's] mind should swing from inspiration to action, from contemplation to accomplishment, from prayer to performance.
SOM pp. 477
Today’s world seems to be hurried, busy with much to do, many actions to perform and choices to make. So much so, that when we most need to take action, we often cannot. Paralyzed by lists of tasks, responsibilities, decisions and difficult and weighty challenges, we are sometimes unable to do what is before us.
Perhaps at such times, inaction is the appropriate response. Perhaps at times of difficulty, stress and confusion, the very best choice is to pause, wait and become re centered.
To return to the world with a sense of joy and commitment that transcends the challenges of ordinary everyday life, we must surely set aside time daily to make known our choices and desires to the Spirit within. This, followed by a time of quite meditation and a willingness to be the instrument through which the Mind of God expresses, transforms our every action into a celebration of God as us.
Indeed, regular time spent in silence prepares us to stand firm and confident in such times when the weight of the world seems to bare down.
Today I enter into each activity with the quiet confidence that Spirit is expressing as me by means of my thoughts, words and deeds. I choose wisely, therefore, because I know that nothing can hinder the pure activity of Life through me. I give thanks for my life and all that is in it.
