“The mystic doesn’t seek to avoid a disagreement so much as to infuse it with grace.” ~ Marianne Williamson
Being in a state of grace requires moving into the present moment; a place where you can operate from your higher self rather than your ego mind. A place where you can watch your thoughts as they come and go and not get tied up in them.
When you know yourself beyond your thinking mind you fill with grace. Its lightness and love embrace you from within and without, making life easy and peaceful.
Without grace it’s easy to get caught in judgments, problems and reactions. Every issue appears bigger than it is and feels bigger than you. Stepping into grace reminds you that you are the spacious presence behind all circumstances and situations that float through your life.
Insights into Grace
♦ At what times in your life have you felt the presence of grace embrace you? What does it feel like to you?
♦ If you were in a state of grace during difficult times, how might it support you? If you were in this state all the time, how would your life flow?
♦ What stops you from living in grace all the time? What supports you to stay there?
Inspiration for Grace
♦ Touch into the state of grace right now. Move into the present moment, take a few deep, relaxing breaths and feel into the light, easy energy of grace. Let it flow into every cell of your body; let it expand to fill your whole being.
♦ Look for grace everywhere you go - see it in your children, pets, out in nature, in your friends, and in the eyes of a stranger. When you look for it, you’ll see it. As you focus on it, it will expand.
♦ Choose grace instead of judgment or reactivity the next time you are in a challenging situation. Let it support you to find peace and balance. Let it inspire you to discover new possibilities instead of more problems.
