Please take time this morning to read, “What is Forgiveness,” to contemplate Lesson 222, and to spend time in meditation. If you have 30-minutes for meditation and would like a gentle audio to guide you, I recommend this meditation by Michael Langford and Karen Worth:
God is with me. I live and move in Him.
God is the nature of all things, both manifest and unmanifest. Where there is anything, there is God. Where there is nothing, there is God.
The basic essence of God is life-awareness. Life-awareness is before presence and it is the basis of presence. It is before creation and it is the basis of creation. One could say that presence is the extension of God, and creation is the effect of presence.
Contemplate presence today, and notice it is you.
Contemplate life-awareness today. Notice it is inseparable from presence and it is the source of presence. Without life-awareness, presence could not be.
Contemplate anything in creation. Notice it is present. Rest with the idea that life-awareness extends to presence, and in the same way, presence projects to become the manifestation of all things. (Some people use the word consciousness instead of presence.)
As you contemplate these things deeply, notice you are always in the presence of God, in the presence of that which is before presence and is the essence of all things that are present.
