“Peace I leave with you; my peace I give to you”
In Genesis 1 we read that “God created humankind in his image, in the image of God he created them, male and female he created them. God blessed them and said be fruitful and multiply.”
Because we’ve become familiar with this passage we skim over the depth of its meaning. As metaphysicians and alchemists lets look into the root of this decree!
What we want to realize is that the way we create is the way God creates. First, we must believe from God, which means the divine Spark of God in us as us is the creative principle of life, and this God Principle creates continuously. God is the energy and manifestation of goodness. Likewise we create our experiences continuously.
As individualizations of this One Life energy, our creations take on what we hold in mind. Our inner images, thoughts and beliefs cause us to believe the story of what we think rather than the Truth and Beauty that is appearing before us. How are you being and seeing the world? Can you see that even the most challenging appearances are opportunities that call us higher to live in a more inclusive manner?
Children are great at being inclusive. This is why Jesus our way-shower said “Let the children come unto me for it is to such as these that the Kingdom of Heaven belongs.”
We enter this “Kingdom of Heaven” as we become still. Our nervous system settles, our mind clears, our heart opens and our focus is taken back, in our minds, to the beginning where the earth before us is a formless void. In this void, awaits your next creation. You and I create how we will experience this month, this day, this moment.
“Let there be Light.”
Practical Application of this Principle:
When faced with the next challenge, give yourself some compassion for the initial reaction. Then turn within to the “I AM’ of your Being and let your “I AM” hover over the darkness, allowing images of possibilities to arise. “Peace I leave with you, my Peace I give to you,” is the place of Silence where divine ideas are caught.
By holding a mighty thought of Peace as you walk in the world, you walk more centered and aware of your connection with the creative principle of Life. Alchemy is like a switch, you live from a deep faith that you are being guided by the Peace that passes all understanding.
