    The Quiet Tranquility of Winter

    The Daily Meditation 2.04.2014

    “ The Quiet Tranquility of Winter”

    Glenn Buckland, RScP

    Here, firmly embedded in Winter, I embrace this opportunity for reflection, contemplation and gratitude for my Divine life experience.

    There is One experience taking place called Humans Being. This is God in It’s billions of earthly incarnations. God as Earth cycles quietly around God as Sun and here, now in the quiet of Winter I recognize God as tranquility, reflection, contemplation. God is Wholeness and all the billions of individual parts that make up Wholeness. God is form manifested from God’s perfect thought. God is Peace and not peace. God is Joy and not joy. God is all of it, expressing divinely through individual experience. It is Perfect, Whole, Complete.

    I Am a cluster of individual God parts that create a uniqueness called “me”. I am an expression of Perfect God. My thoughts are God’s thoughts manifesting as my perfect Life. I am Joy and not joy. I am Peace and not peace. God self-discovers through me. Knowing there is One experience taking place I know that God self-discovers through each of us so this Truth flows for everyone.

    In the quiet of this Winter cycle I contemplate Spring. Seeing the barren trees I know they are quietly, internally rejuvenating and preparing for their season of bloom. So do I. I go within during these short days and long nights remembering who I am and why I’m here. I am here to express God, all of It. This winter chill inspires my gratitude for heat and the energy of the Sun. Thank you Winter for your inspiration. The monochrome landscape of Winter inspires my gratitude for Spring color. Thank you Winter. My family draws closer in Winter and I’m reminded of generations past when a lack heat, food and safety created a deep bond of reliance on one another to forge through the seeming bleakness of this season. It is All on purpose, It is all Perfect and I bask in it. The early and beautiful sunsets inspire me to make big plans knowing that God’s grace supports my every idea. Life is rich. And right now, as the sun breaks through the gray morning clouds, illuminating the day I know that all is well.

    Gratitude fills my entire being. Thank you life for the seasons and this beautiful experience of Being Human. I am so thankful for this season of reflection, Nature is Divine and I am inspired to rejuvenate and bloom again. My best and highest self forms now in this space of Faith and Thankfulness.

    I release this prayer into the Law. This seed of Perfect Self is planted in the soul of Life itself and manifests now. This is how it works. I recognize this Truth and call it Good.
