“The interior rest that humility brings is the immense energy of surrender without seeking any satisfaction or consolation. It is just to be and to accept the nothingness of un-manifest reality.”
“Blessed are the poor in spirit” (Matthew 5: 3) means blessed are they who recognize their absolute dependence and need for God,” – Keating, Thomas. Reflections on the Unknowable
As I need oxygen and water to live, I need God, spirit and connection with other souls on this journey. To receive God without question but as simply as the receipt of oxygen and water. As I keep moving westward on this infinite sea of blue and darkness, I have been overwhelmed by the simplicity of surrendering to my need for God without agenda.
Where am I to go from here? What is my purpose? Why do I have no fear but mindfulness? Why do I see everything with wonder now? Why am I at peace? Why am I joyful at last? I have no more questions now, but I thankfully accept the “nothingness of un-manifest reality”. This is indeed, my treasure. To my friends: I am changed profoundly.
