I Am That I Am

Today’s “Pay Forward” gift is – I Am That I Am. If our Father wanted us to be someone or something else we would be. “Every blade of grass has its angel that bends over it and whispers, “Grow, grow” (Talmud). Although we are far more important than a blade of grass, if we listen in the silence of our soul our angel is shouting, “Grow, grow.” “He has given His angels charge over me; they lift me up in their arms, lest at any time I may dash my foot against a stone.” We don’t have to be one of the great leaders; we need only to take care of whom or what is in front of us. Let us be faithful to our authentic-self. How many ways have we heard the same thing said, “This above all; to thine own, self be true" (William Shakespeare). “What we have to be is what we are" (Thomas Merton). We have one dis-ease; a human without a conscious contact with our Father. We have one Omnipresent Healer; known or unknown, our Father. “A man has made at least a start on discovering the meaning of human life when he plants shade trees under which he knows full well never sit" (Elton Trueblood). We have come a long way on our Spiritual recovery when we plant the Alcoholics Anonymous’ seed which we know we may never see it grow. Thy Love, Thy Will be done
