Reading & Meditation (Revelation)
By Rev. Christine Emmerling 7/17/22
Today I’ve selected to reading from “Divine Science Its Principle and Practice” a compilation of Truth & Health by Fannie James and Divine Science and Healing by Malinda Cramer.
Truth is eternal and changeless, but until every mystery of truth is made plain to the mind of man(kind) there must be revelation. Though “eye hath not seen, nor ear heard, neither have entered into the heart of man, the things which God hath prepared,” 1 Cor. 2:9 man(kind) also has the promise that, “the eyes of the blind shall be opened, and the ears of the deaf shall be unstopped.” Isa. 35:5.
Revelation comes not at set times and places but to the individual when able to receive and make use of fuller knowledge. The Spirit of Truth will guide a person into all truth. It is an indwelling Spirit of Divine Intelligence which never forsakes but forever proclaims “Behold, I stand at the door and know:” Rev. 3:20 and “Lo, I am with you always.” Matt. 28:20. When man(kind) is willing to hear the voice and open their consciousness to it, it will guide them into divine understanding and will see all things in a new light.
“Revelation is an unveiling, but the veil is on the face of man and not on the face of God.” The veil is a fitting symbol of our ignorance; with ever new revelation of truth the veil grows thinner. “Which veil is done away in Christ.” 2 Cor. 3:14. In the full understanding of truth all ignorance is done away. Revelation is not the making of new truth, it is the uncovering of the ever-present Truth as we are able to see and hear.
Let us move into meditation. I invite you to get comfortable, relax, and take in some good deep breaths as we turn inward to our sacred temple.
Behold I make all things new. New in mind, new in heart, new in body. I now open my mind and heart to this Infinite Divine Presence we call God. This everywhere Presence of God is all life, is my life. It is the life behind every soul, atom and cell -- and is every soul, atom and cell of all creation.
My entire being is the living God in expression. (Repeat)
I am awakening to my true nature; loving, joyous, peaceful, intelligent, creative, powerful, prosperous, wise and whole. Everyday in every way I am awakening expanding my sense of self, I am living anew. My true self is invisible as God is invisible... My true self is light as God is light... My true self is love as God is love... My true self is all knowing as God is all knowing... My true body is the body of God made manifest – vibrantly radiantly alive both invisible and visible. Be still and know... (Silence)
As we bring our attention back, let us be in gratitude for these moments in silent at-one-ment. Thank you All Loving Presence. So it is, Amen!
