Opening Reading & Meditation (Wisdom) by Rev. Christine Emmerling 9/17/2023
Today I’m sharing from the Divine Science Daily Studies volume II. This reading is written by Harlen M. Oyer.
Considering the subject of guidance, a well-known minister states, “Go first to God, and then to man, if God so directs.” When we go first to Creative Cause, Divine Mind, God, we know that the ideas we receive are worthy of pursuance. We are each at a different level of awareness, and when we go to man for guidance we have to realize that, regardless of how well meant and sincere the advice may be, man is limited.
In seeking divine guidance we have an important point to remember: we are not seeking confirmation of our intended plan of action; we are seeking spiritual guidance. The answer we receive may be the complete opposite of what we may have had in mind.
When the answer comes, as it surely will; when we feel surness in the rightness of the answer, it is our responsibility to follow through with concrete action. To take it and use it.
If you are now seeking guidance, take a moment to sit down and relax, to let go of your own personal will. Let the ideas of God flow into your consciousness. Accept them. Then dedicate yourself to bringing them forth into concrete expression. Know that all will be well – all is well!
“Ask, and it shall be given you; seek, and you shall find; knock, and it shall be opened unto you.” Matt. 7:7
We shall now move into a meditation on Wisdom. Let us turn inward to our holy temple. Now bringing our attention to our breath breathing in deeply the Love of God, and exhale slowly releasing love. I invite you to take in these words to embody them.
The Omniscience of God is all wisdom, all knowledge and understanding, and is everywhere present here and now. Therefore I am one with this Divine Presence of God, and this Universal Intelligence is at hand, it is part of me.
The source of all wisdom is available to me. (Repeat)
Omniscience is a living presence of Divine Intelligence that is every aspect of my being. My very DNA is a storehouse of Divine knowledge... Every cell is radiant light, and this light is pure intelligence... Light I am... I am a being of light... I knock, my inner door opens to God’s wisdom and knowledge, the Divine Intelligence of the Universe. In the silence I now listen...
Let us take a moment to let the joy of gratitude fill our hearts. Thank you Divine Presence for these moments of Oneness. So it is, Amen.
I invite you to bring your attention back and to your breathing.
