“It Is Necessary For Us To Understand The Only Active Principle Is Spirit” E. Holmes

The Quake of our life – not the tremors that crack the weathered fences of vanity we’ve built around our life – of

I wonder what I am fencing in? And what I am fencing out?

material stuff, monetary security, title, status, position – and of mask of persona of perspective of seeing from a false facade of me, myself, mine. But The Big One – The Big Bang of a quake – The Big Roller Coaster ride of a quake that carries us far beyond known of familiar ground setting us down on the unknown of a groundless nothing beyond what we’ve experienced before. Our foundations of life, faith, beliefs, values, attitudes are shaken to the core, stripped away, torn asunder, leaving us in a seeming groundless state of being. A state of being in which we struggle for our next breath, next step, next heartbeat of life. Prior sureness of footing in life now seems to falter, to sink, to be swallowed by a quicksand of the conditions of life itself.

Prayer lifts us above the quicksand of circumstances of our life.

A quicksand of turbulent feelings, of twisting emotions, of turning directions all further toss and tumble one topsy-turvy into the uncertainty of insecurity. An uncertainty of insecurity as to who one is, why one is here, what one’s life purpose is. A quicksand of victim hood of seeming helplessness swallows up who we thought we were, where we thought we were headed, what we thought we wanted in life – and of what life wanted from us. It is in the surrendering to the allowing of the quake to crack us open, and in the surrendering to the quicksand of life to swallow up all of what was – we evolve to a Transcendent Self behind the fences of falsehoods of who we thought we were. Bruce Lipton states “Evolution – like Heaven – is not a destination – but a practice.” Prayer is a practice that ladders us above life’s quicksand.

“I live in faith that there is a Presence and Power greater than I am that nurtures and supports me in ways I could not imagine. I know this Presence is All knowing and All Power and is Always right where I am” – Ernest Holmes.

A practice of daily prayer, meditation, contemplation awakenings us to the reality that as one rolls with the quakes

Prayer, meditation, centering bring us to Divine Revelation.

and surrenders to the quicksand of conditions of life – one evolves by means of such experiences to a royalty of revelation – that as does the oyster become a pearl by grit of grain of sand – the grit of conditions of our lives brings deliverance from quake’s jolt, quicksand’s grip, to a vast and quickening Awakening Awareness that the ground on which we walk is of Heaven as earth.

Today’s Prayer: “The ground on which I walk, breath, live is Heaven on earth.”
