New Growth!

Sometimes God allows us to be born all over again. Sometimes years of struggle melt into a new plateau of peace and refreshment. Praise God for his gracious willing of this. Enjoy every minute of it! Let it be like a beacon in the darkness that you will be able to see when you might need it in the future. The light is always there! Never forget it!

God's Address

The Benedictine Way:
"Be Here, Be NOW! with GOD!"
This is his ADDRESS - REALLY!

3 secret steps for everyone

Surrender to the Father - everything about you!
Be possessed by the Son - give him permission to do this!
Love in the Spirit - let him saturate you and guide your every movement!

And you will have a happy, joyful, useful, happy, sometimes painful day!
But it will be meritorious for someone else and your place in heaven will
grow higher and deeper still!

You are dead!

If you have been baptized, confirmed, ordained especially: then you (the ego) are dead: dead to the world. So stop trying to be un-dead! You will never find peace when the recalcitrant ego wars within your soul to surface again. Flee the enticements, temptations and sins of the world, the flesh and the devil. And you will find your true life, the life of your body and soul alive and hidden with Christ in the heart of God the Father. There is no safer place to be. There is no fountain of joy and peace greater than this. There is no love - which casts out all fear - greater than this. YOU ARE DEAD! YOU ARE DEAD INDEED! So cease trying to "resurrect yourself" - let God resurrection the real you to his glorious life both here and hereafter! Amen.

BALANCE RHYTHM PEACE

Balance, rhythm, peace! A sure formula for happiness in life both here and hereafter. And it is the tried, tested and true 1500 year old Benedictine format! It is fire-tried gold!

Balance in all things - encourages St. Benedict to his sons (and daughters). Avoid excesses and find the gently pulsating continuum line of your life - and go with it - for it is the gently pulsating Presence of the Holy Spirit Himself.

This leads to a palpable rhythm or temp of prayer and life that is remarkable and noticeable.

And these two cannot help but produce peace... deep, abiding, joyful peace that only Christ can give, being the peace of the Gospel, the Peace of God himself.

Strive after then "benedictine" balance, and rhythm and you will find peace, peace, deep and lasting peace.

LIFE BEGINS AGAIN

"Life begins again each new day!" - yes, this is true, but "abundant life begins again each and every new moment" is a secret of deeply joyful, hopeful and peaceful living. Jesus reaches out his Face and hand to us every moment of the day. Instead of regretting the past or projecting into the future - with all our heart and soul let the saintly soul embrace each new now as a precious gift from the Lord - who will saturate us then with grace, blessing, healing and calm! JESUS! JESUS! JESUS! I adore you!

Stay tuned here for more insights, explanations and development of the spiritual journeying dynamic.
