Daniel Day 32

In the third year of Cyrus king of Persia, Daniel was doing a three week penance. He took no agreeable food, touched no wine or meat, and did not anoint himself. On the banks of a river, he saw the \”Person like a man\” dressed in linen with a voice like a multitude (theophany of the Son of Man). The man said, \”Daniel, do not be afraid: from that first day when, the better to understand, you resolved to mortify yourself before God, your words have been heard, your words are the reason why I came…Do not be afraid…peace be with you…\”

As I read these words in prayer, I allowed the possibility that God hears me to open in my heart. Then, as my heart was an open blossom, I felt touched and breathed on and breathed in. We are loved more than any of us will ever know. I allowed the possibility and the touch increased. He is always there, waiting more for me than me for Him.

This is the consummated moment for the celibate, the person vowed to God.


Daniel Day 30

I want to remember Love today. That is my intention and resolve. Jesus will help me to remember if I ask. I turn my thinking over to Jesus\’ guidance and I know I will remember.

I had a wonderful moment of clarity in my morning meditation today:

REALITY, not the ego world (of hate and judgment) most of us are conscious of, is the intangible world of Love. Love is the predominent mode of existence. Consistently deny the ego\’s perception of error in others; and you will be left only with Love. Be vigilant for Love; and know Heaven. The Kingdom of Heaven, REALITY, in within our minds and in all; we just need to be aware of Love instead of ego. My whole spiritual practice has the purpose of helping me to live in The Kingdom and not in the ego world.

Coming to work in the middle of the night and dealing with mud and smelly water is not so bad when I remember Love; and Love is everywhere. Love is the reality we forget to see or pretend not to see.
