P. 87 Pathways to Wholeness
We are born from silence.
If we we live from the silence within, we know our wholeness
lives there too.
It is limitless, eternal, trustworthy, joyous, compassionate,
loving and real.
Wholeness is not broken.
It cannot be broken, as each piece is part of the whole
and contains the mystery of the whole.
We cannot run from wholeness or turn away from it.
It goes with us because we are wholeness.
I look at my finger and it is not only a finger. It is part of a hand
that is part of an arm, that is part of a shoulder, that is part of a body,
that is part of creation, and creation is wholeness.
The truth is challenging to understand. We cannot find wholeness because it is not lost.
We are wholeness. When our mind is quiet and still, our heart is open, and our trust is strong, trust turns and looks straight into our eyes and speaks, "Here I am, I am wholeness. I have always been here. I was with you before you were born and I remain throughout time, because I am you."
It is up to us to live our life in wholeness ... to turn to it, and grasp it, through conscious living.
Wholeness is a part of us that we touch from time to time when we pray, meditate and contemplate.
The more we touch our wholeness, the more we believe in its existance. It is our belief in the existence of our wholeness that makes us whole.
