Remember that the earth, with material sense removed, is heaven...
the Spirit of the Lord is there is Liberty." And that Spirit is
Omnipresent so why am I not experiencing the promised freedom from
financial insecurity, freedom from physical discomfort, or freedom
Because there is one word missing from
the scripture and that word makes the difference between
demonstration and intellectual agreement. The word? Realized.
the Spirit is realized there is Liberty demonstrated,
tangible, touchable, visible.
So what does realized mean? What
exactly is the experience called realization? It is nothing less than
the actual feel of that Spirit in our meditation. When we sit
down to meditate and the mind starts right in with memorized
statements of truth, we are apt to think that we have known the truth
and should begin to experience freedom from whatever problem is
confronting us. But it doesn't happen because a thought about truth
is not Truth or Spirit.
We only have a realized truth when an
activity of Truth is felt in our Consciousness; an activity that we
receive from the inner depths of Being; an activity that is felt
within. We must go deeper than thought to that place of stillness
if only for a moment. And then our Silence becomes Spirit's abiding
place. We feel a movement, we receive an impartation,
we realize that we are not alone, there really is an
indwelling Spirit and It has made its Presence known to our outer
This then is realized Truth and we find that
in that Spirit which is felt, we are free. Liberty is included in that
inner experience of the Spirit, and the inner experience transforms
the outer form and harmony appears. The inner Peace felt, results
in the outer harmony revealed.
Let us stop looking for freedom
from some external circumstance and seek this freedom in this feeling
of the indwelling Spirit. Then we shall really see that this Spirit
restores the lost years of the locusts. Our inner realization will
appear as the cloud by day and the pillar of fire by night; for where
the Spirit of the Lord is realized, there Liberty is
Blessings and Love.
I in the midst of you am the way.
