(Sermon – “POWERFUL BEYOND MEASURE”, Given Sunday Feb 28,2016, Albertson Memorial Church, Old Greenwich, CT.)
Have you ever heard of the term “ THE CHRISTED ONE”? Yes Jesus was one, and there have been many others who held the Light of the Divine within them: The Buddha, Krishna, Abraham, and Moses, Kwan Yin, Mary the Mother, Mary Magdalene, Isis and many others are said to hold the Light of God within them .The Divine Universal Being, God/Goddess/All That Is, whatever name feels right for you, needs us right now to step up and become Co-creators with Him/ Her/It. It is time for all of us to recognize our Beingness with the Divine and say YES to using our power for the highest good for all life on this planet ALL THE TIME. . So, when Jesus said “Whatever works I do, so shall you do also”, who do you think he was talking to?
Personal power comes from the quiet time, not from the loud boisterous behavior that we see and hear about in the news. It comes in the quiet moments, in the silence of yourself, when there is nothing between you and the Divine. I find this personally, in nature, when I have a quiet knowingness that God/Goddess/All That Is, dwells in me and in everything. Every stone, every leaf, every molecule of water in a stream. To focus that energy and power into what I am choosing to do in that moment, from healing myself to healing the planet. That is the place where my power resides and where I can send it out to help and be of benefit to the world.
Personal Power comes from the quiet assurance that there is a connection between us and the Divine. That point of connection is what gives us our own personal sense of the power that dwells within us, and from that we can send that power into the world to heal, bless and benefit, with and for the highest good of all. No personal agenda or timing,… just holding in our heart that whatever we send out is for the Highest and best good in the world.
My first suggestion is that you don’t buy into the fear-mongering. JUST Stop …and actively take a stand for the GOOD. SEE THE DIVINE working FOR THE HIGHEST GOOD IN ALL THINGS…even when we cannot figure out how this can be…
So how do you do this? How do you connect with your power and use it for the highest good for all Beings?
Try this: Meditate on the vision of One-Divine –Power-of–Light, that fills the entire universe, and shines like the sun and blesses each living thing and every human it touches. Visualize it pouring from the Divine Heart of Oneness- (God/Goddess/All That Is) down into the top of your head… and flowing down into your heart… , and from there flowing out to all the people you can visualize or all the countries of the world, filling up every place there is contention or darkness. Feel the power of that Light to heal and support. Because you are tapping into the Divine Light, you are not making this light yourself; it is always available to you.
