I am fortunate. I have guides in my life. I do not talk to them every day. I do not remember ever telling them of their roles in my life. Often we link up due to providence. Yesterday was one such encounter. My meditation guide walked into the space I was in and connected with me when I needed it most. I knew something with my mind. At the same time, I was struggling with the knowledge in my heart.
Why is it so difficult to deal with what we know to be true?
The scene was not planned or a perfect setting. We were both coming to the Russian Baths in New York to rest, focus, stretch. Over the years, we have found ourselves together, almost as if Divinity knew we needed a conversation. I do not know of one meeting that either of us planned. We just happened to meet. Yesterday's meeting again confirmed that God knows what I need even when I do not.
As we sat stretching in the extremely hot sauna, I found myself replaying a scene from an old play. I was on the hot seat (physically not metaphorically!). “The Chief Priest said, 'What do you have to say for yourself?'” (Acts 7.1) The question was challenging. I knew that he has no easy way of knowing if I was being open, transparent, and honest. In hindsight, I know my body was telling far more of the truth than I realized.
As we spoke of our lives and insights, I found myself listening to God's voice from within. You and I have so much truth that we squander. You and I have the tools within that we often leave untouched. You and I know far more than we realize.
For me, the first step lies in a daily reconnection. It may sound easy, but the discipline of spending ten percent of my awake hours setting the foundation and closing things off is something I long for more than I experience. Today is our opportunity to action what we already know.
