“The only transformation you can experience in space and time is the reaching down from the depth of the ocean into one tiny, temporary wave and readjusting the little foam drops on the tip of the wave you call the body-mind of the self, so that it begins to be a transparent conduit for an awareness of the ocean itself. That is the game of awakening. It is actually the most delightful use of time you will ever find.” (“The Way of Transformation,” WOM, Chapter 13, Page 166 – 167)
Don’t we want to have delight in our lives? Well, when we are out of sorts, then we need to adjust that tiny, temporary wave from the ocean that is our body-mind. This personal self is temporarily inaccessible to a greater understanding. But we can’t readjust on our own; we need help, and we can have it from God Himself. Ask for help in removing discontent, moving us to delight. There is no better use of time.
We are—all of us—engaged in Awakening, whether we are seeing glimpses or are sustaining it. We can hope that our glimpses will elongate, and elongate they will when our attitude is right. Ask to have a readjustment whenever we lapse into negativism. Ask to see things properly again.
Yes, we want delight in living. And we can have it! This is the great promise of Awakening.
