John 13. Verses 3-4 says:
“So during supper, fully aware that the Father had put everything into his power and that he had come from God and was returning to God, he rose from supper and took off his outer garments.”
How can we come to our “Divinity” without usurping the First Law of the Universe? That there is but One God and no strange ones to be Before God?
Easy. We all become a piece of God. We join the Divine in us with that “Peace of God” that we can “parachute” into when we leave our outer garments in the plane we feel so secure in remaining.
You’ll be safe.
Have Faith in your Higher Self, the part with a direct line to the Beloved.
You gotta leave all other desires behind you. I know it’s frightening to contemplate. At first. But what a vision awaits you. A new world. A place where you can be invincible while in the Hands of the Greatest Lover you will ever know or depend upon.
You already made your way to the door. Now hook up for your chute to open automatically as you exit that so-called cabin-security and become one with the sky.
There’s an emergency parachute for you to pull should life fail you. It will open.
If only you will open to this daring challenge your Faith has brought you to face.
Jump at this chance. Float on a wing and a prayer.

Many thanks for your kind reflection upon my late blog entry. Many more apologies for my delay in response!
Your words have both challenged me and given me hope. I’m having a really hard time making the jump. I’m struggling in a long distance relationship and I’m finding it difficult to give myself over and trust in the parachute that is so freely given to me.
Despite this struggle I am happy to be on this journey of awakening to this precious divinity of wholeness, love, and peace deep within! It’s sometimes easier to recognize it in others than in myself but all I can say is patience, patience.
Thank you for sharing in this journey with me!
We’d do practice “jumps” in Ft. Benning’s Jump School. Hook up to wires as we jumped from a wooden platform to give us a sense of leaping out of a plane.
They were called “simulated” jumps.
That’s what you ought to practice. A simulated leap of faith.
But, be sure you know how to hit the ground and roll the right way. Wouldn’t want to see you get hurt too much.
Thank you for your words Michael. There is a lot there to think about. I’m about to go for a walk in one of our city’s beautiful old growth parks and will take what you said with me to ponder…
You’re already right where you are supposed to be in Life. Enjoy the park. Enjoy the contemplation. Enjoy your Self . . .
