“The Eye with which I see God is the same Eye with which God sees me” Meister Eckhart
The day after attending my mom’s burial I decide I need a quiet walk in nature.
Walking along Mountain Top Road, I find myself talking to mom.
Looking up into the sky, looking at the ground, trees, rocks, plants. Asking her to show me a sign.
I had made this request of her prior to her death, while she was in a morphine-induced sleep, knowing she heard me, and now reminding her that this was my wish.
When you’re free, please let me know, send me a sign that you are in the form of infinite love and peace, finally free of suffering.
I did not receive any observable signal today.
However, I am feeling a very unusually peaceful sense of calm, with a release of tears every now and then when the reminder of sadness wells up inside.
Today’s quiet walk in nature did present some clarity around our Divine nature.
The mind cannot comprehend IT, that which we ARE.
Infinity, infinite potential, is not 3-D mind-graspable.
But it is ALWAYS THERE. (Love had no beginning and no end)
So why wouldn’t mom be the SEER of life through MY eyes today?
As she is again ONE with ALL that IS, and that’s what “SEES” through each of our individual eyes.
Whatever ‘sign’ she shows me, depends on Janet’s ability to recognize the ONE who SEES through my eyes, the infinite SEER.
I think Dr. Petrovich says it more eloquently:
“So many folks tell me how much they want to live divinely, to really see it, experience it and be it. It’s almost as though people believe that somewhere “out there” is someone who is going to magically make a divine mindset appear. It is exactly the opposite. You are the only person who can change your focus within your life to one of divine awareness.
The task begins to break down to one basic concept: spending time in silence so that the cosmic, divine information has a place to land. And you know how busy your mind is during the day and also at night. There is a constant pitter-patter of mental rain that is always falling within your mind so the divine knowing has no space to enter.
Wanting to “feel it in your bones” must begin with your mind and heart. There is a direct connection among the mind, heart and bones with the heart leading the parade. The mind can either come along for the ride or can resist the idea and fight against it. This decision is entirely up to you.
When you begin to quiet down and listen to your heart, you will start realizing that your thoughts and mental words are simply symbols of your divinity. The awareness you are, the witness, the observer is truly what you are when you release the need to focus on specific thoughts about anything.”
