Joel Goldsmith wrote that the “answer, the solution to all problems, is the realized Christ . . . . Christ risen in our consciousness, Christ raised up from the tomb through meditation.” He says that we should devote one meditation period alone each day to God: “God alone.”
In this period of God alone, we center ourselves in God and ask for nothing. This is the ultimate communion – to just be in God’s presence, to just sit in the kingdom, to just be a witness to the activity of Christ in our minds, light in our bodies, and grace in our souls.
In the kingdom, we return the garden that gives without ceasing. We see the fruit that has always been hanging. We realize that it was never eaten, that even when it is plucked, its branches remain low for our reach. Our fruit remains fresh in the awareness that there is neither good nor evil, only God alone.
Here, in the heart of God, I see Moses. He never died. He simply became that which truth is and always will be. He had no need to enter that which he already was. This is the space of sacred breath and gentle silence.
I sit on the edge of nothingness into not one – but thousands, millions, infinite meditations that do nothing but listen.
Just one breath breathing into another is holier than a song. This is where we find ourselves in the loving embrace of Jesus’ eyes as he carried our cross. I will never leave you nor forsake you, he said. I will send the Holy Spirit to be your teacher, counselor and guide.
The Holy Spirit is neither Christian, nor Muslim, nor Hindu, nor Jew but is that vast intersection of all faiths, struggling for expression when all they have to do is listen.
