The Wisdom Jesus
Our Faith and Science group has been studying this book for more than a year. We meet twice a month on a Friday, and yesterday, Ray, our leader, took us through a 20 minute quiet period based on Cynthia Bourgeault’s chapter on Centering Prayer.
“Be Still and Know that I am God”
I’ve been an active meditator since late 1989, when I first joined Fountain International. But I learned how to work with energy in Cynthia’s group in Berkshire in 1987. That is the basis of my ‘awareness’.
The colours I see on the ‘screen’ of my inner sight help me to be alert to changes in the energy that is around me.
With a group of 23 individuals, this can be a very interesting process. My point is that I would not be engaging in thoughts, but recognizing the process through the colour changes.
(Twenty minutes can seem like a long time, but in this instance seemed to be just about right.)
My ‘normal’ set of colours has at its base a pulsating lava lamp look of an amethyst cloud. Sometimes, blue and then green will pulsate through that field of vision. Sometimes, it will remain constant. I have been told that this is my major aura colour.
So you can imagine my surprise to get this colour after about ten minutes:
This is a first for me. I never see red on my visual screen. So I can only surmise that I was absorbing the energy of the person sitting next to me. Base chakra material?
Then the colours alternated between the amethyst and the ruby for about another five minutes, and then another colour showed up.
When I saw this shade of grey, I registered the thought that this was the blended colour of the whole group, and then let it go, while just luxuriating in a blissful feeling of peace.
Meditation is a powerful tool. It helps us to follow Jesus’ instruction:
But when you pray, go into your room, close the door and pray to your Father, who is unseen. Then your Father, who sees what is done in secret, will reward you. (Matthew 6:6)
The reward? God’s Presence.
There are no words that can express this, trust me.
