Group: SE Idaho TeaM
Greetings, I am Aaron. Welcome here tonight in this place of stillness, where we can rest for a time in the presence of divinity.
Although you preside in the presence of your Indwelling Fragment, it is no less recognizable by myself, this presence of God within you. For even though I have this connection with my Divine Fragment on a permanent scale, it does not diminish my sensitivity to the Divine within you.
This holds some significance in the scale of of universe living, for we are not disconnected units of light, having individual charges from the Divine that keep us sustained internally, while viewing all else as alien individuals with no real connection to one another. No! This is an integral universe and it behooves us all to consider, to contemplate, and meditate on the fact that we can perceive God in others even as we seek to perceive God in ourselves.
Sometimes the lightning rod of divinity can come from another in a way that could not be transferred directly through your own mind. This perspective requires perceptiveness and awareness of your connection to a far greater web of existence than just one child to a parent, for in reality it is a far flung family that is so interconnected that sometimes we don't even realize how truly connected we all are.
We take energy for granted without always realizing that this energy is an initiated reaction of divinity in connection with its separation or transformation out of infinity to create a stable manageable system of bodies and voids for energy to work in such a way as to allow for the creation of perfected spheres of activity and imperfect spheres of activity. Energy seems so readily available to us all because it is so inherent in the very creation manifested by God.
We perceive love for one another at varying degrees, particularly for our own family units, in such a way that we can't always see that the manifestation of this energy is no less an inherent part of the overall organism that is functioning throughout the universes.
The scientist perceives a lack of God only because God's presence is so integral to existence that it is difficult to distinguish as separate from those energies and mechanisms taken for granted.
It is this very realization of the integral nature of things that allows us to be brought into a dawning awareness of the cosmic relationship of all things in a similar way as a family relationship is perceived.
So as I connect with you, it is my honor to acknowledge you and this presence of divinity within you together, for in this is the realization of our inherent connection as siblings of a greater reality that transcends ourselves, and allows us to strive for increasing awareness and connection with this reality through our own internal seeking yes, but also in the awareness of God as present in each other.
That I can subsequently share some philosophical tidbit to tweak your senses and cause you to ponder new potentials and insights is just "icing on the cake" compared to the real connection that we have, unified in this spirit reality.
So no lesson tonight... Just this time to be aware of the connection we have -- or maybe a lesson is contained in the awareness itself. I am smiling as I say this "tongue in cheek," knowing that the intention to convey insight was part of my purpose for sharing this understanding this evening.
Thanks you so much, Simeon, for coming and listening. I have watched, and although you struggle with your connection and the time you give to it from time to time, indeed there is progress and your desire to serve and be connected is still strong. The stillness is a process that unfolds in degrees over time and although you find yourself sporadic, know that the contemplation of reality, even if not focused and intentional to the meditation point, [it] still provides that connective awareness in degrees that allow you to . . . be laced with insight for continued progress. Continue to apply yourself and all else will take care of itself.
I bid you farewell this evening and look forward to more connections as the time presents itself.
