Miracle Mindset

There is a story in Luke 5:5 where Jesus was standing by the lake of Gennesaret.  He saw two boats and the fishermen were washing their nets.  He entered the boat that was Simon’s and asked him to put out a little from the land. He sat down and taught the multitudes from the boat.  When he had finished speaking, he said to Simon, “put out into the deep, and let down your nets for a catch.”  Simon answered him “Master we worked all night and took nothing but at your word I will let down the net.” When they had done this, they caught a great multitude of fish.

According to The New Testament, Metaphysically interpreted, All of us now are standing by the lake of Gennesaret, for it symbolizes a rich sea of divine life.

Universal principle of Life unites us with creation.  We have a choice.  To walk into our day sleep walking,  or we can awaken to the grace and guidance of our “Higher Self” our “I Am,” which is represented by Jesus.

Simon means one who listens and follows the Higher Self.  Now maybe that looks like reading your morning Daily Word, speaking your affirmations, preparing yourself to walk in the day being Present and this is fantastic.  But after Jesus finished teaching the multitudes, (getting ourselves centered and ready to face the day) he said to Simon, “put out into the deep and let down your nets.”

Now, they had been fishing all night with nothing to show for it.  But again, they followed this guidance.  Here we think we are done with our morning rituals of centering ourselves so that we walk in our day from a consciousness that is clear.  But wait, there’s more!  We are asked to go deeper than this. To “Know Ourselves at depth”  and have a deep awareness of Spirit, then we may want to put out a little further, maybe give yourself moments to journal or time to be still after all your readings and take a deep dive inside your being, becoming aware of what is happening within you or what divine ideas are ready to be caught by you.

Think of lake Gennesaret as your consciousness and often even when we set our intentions and vision and purpose, we need to go a little deeper and give even those up, so as to receive the grace of Spirit.

One of my favorite prayers/songs is “The Grace Chant.” by Richard Mekdici Reciting and repeating this clears our consciousness and prepares us to Live in Spirit.

“Into thy hands I commit my Spirit.  They will is my will, heal me at best, so that I may glorify God. Reveal that which needs to be revealed, heal that which needs to be healed, so that I may glorify God, so that I may glorify God.”

Have a God Day, Rev Janice
