God Is, I Am
I was reminded again yesterday of a favorite author of mine, Eric Butterworth, and a simple and healing tool for focusing the light that is ever present in us. As he explains in this book "The Creative Life," we can affirm and breathe, God Is, I Am.
"Take a few moments with this breathing exercise: On the inbreath, speak the words 'God is.' Hold it . . . then, on the outbreath, affirm, 'I am.' Hold it. Repeat this several times. Get the sense that you are vitally coupled with the energy of God's light. With this centering in the light, you see with light. And your seeing actually becomes a "light treatment" of all that you see. . . . (You) become synchronized with and in the stream of light that is everywhere present. Now make a survey of your schedule for the day: your appointments . . . contacts, projects and relationships. As you hold them in the light one by one, you give to each one a 'light treatment.' . . . The whole of Infinite Mind is within you -- and you have access to the wisdom of the ages."
This is good stuff! When I practice this, I become aware of the light that is always within me and everywhere present. The texture of everything in my awareness changes as I recognize the perfection in all of it. I release concerns or considerations that are not my own, and there is no need to struggle over anything. God is, and I am, in this moment of light. I am an active participant in creation - an ongoing design of perfection.
May this tool be a blessing. . .
