A Relationship with Jesus

“Establishing this relationship with me may sound lofty and difficult, but it is simple. It is as simple as relationship is within your everyday life. You may not think that relationship within everyday life is simple, but you also know it as a constant.” (ACOL, D:Day39.11)

Jesus is here, once again, asking us to indulge him by establishing a relationship with him as the unseen. We don’t have to think that he is the only way to God, but he is writing in the Christian tradition, with the religion that, with Paul’s help, he established. And most of us have a background in the Christian faith, which makes a “personal relationship” with Jesus more palpable.

I know from experience that my mind and heart deliver answers when I write an imaginary dialogue with Jesus. Somehow he gets through to me, through my informed imagination. Subconscious minds are one, as is everyone—just One. And so we don’t have to search long and hard to believe that Jesus can communicate with us. We just have to entertain the idea that he can be in more than one place at a time. With Jesus being spirit, this is not so strange.

So establishing a relationship with Jesus may mean simple asking for advice, and then taking the advice (as long as we don’t imagine harm to anybody). This simple asking will prove to us that there is somebody listening, and it is not just God.

Dear God,

Thank You for the good advice that I just got a moment ago. The advice that I get is always rational and practical, helps in my everyday life. If I wander too long with my head in the clouds, Jesus seems to put my feet back on the ground. And I thank him—and You—for that.

Thank You for slowing me down this morning. I try too hard sometimes, and I set myself up for a downfall.

I would not set myself up for a downfall today, nor in the future.

Amen.
