The Sacred River of Grace

Grace is the sacred river behind all of life. It flows in its mysterious way through your lifetime, guiding you, assisting you in the revelation of true reality. All of life’s difficulties are disguised in grace. Each painful experience leads you closer to your eternal stillness of truth and wisdom, healing the cause of sorrow.

Pain and suffering are the result of great grace, showing you where your life needs more love, more attention. Grace is seeing yourself with total honesty, having the humility to take what is seen, knowing that the veil of ignorance that covers your true essence does not exist in reality. Grace is seeing that life is a continues pointer to your reality, timeless and eternal, and that all errors are born in separation from it.

Humility and grace are born from knowing that your true essence is Divine and eternal, seeing that expressions from your personality are not always in the light of your Divine nature. Grace is the clear observation of that which is false, seeing that truth is found in turning away from a separate identity. It is a deep letting go of all that is not of your true self, opening to the light of pure consciousness.
