For some reason I have been continually thinking of the Lord’s Prayer the last few days. When I was a child, our family would say this prayer every night before dinner, when families use to eat together. As a child it was simply a repition that we would utter so that we could eat, but recently it has become very dominant in my awareness.
“Our Father, who art in Heaven,
Holy be Thy name,
Thy Kingdom come,
Thy will be done,
On earth as it is in Heaven,
Give us this day our daily bread,
And forgive our trepasses
As we forgive those who trepass against us,
Lead us not into temptation,
But deliver us from evil”
Now, what has consistently been entering into my awareness have been the first 5 lines. “Our Father who art in Heaven, Holy be Thy name. Thy Kingdom come, Thy will be done, On earth as it is in Heaven.” So if we use our scientific mind and deduce this we can come to some conclusions.
In the book of Luke it says “The Kingdom of God is within man.” Now…we can conclude from this statement in the Bible that because God resides within His Kingdom, and the Kingdom of God is within man, God is within us…yes? Yes. Not a special person (Jesus –who is a True Master), nor a few lucky souls, ALL of us. So, God is within us. We are an extension of God. Now this is where it gets fun. “Thy Kingdom come, thy will be done, on earth as it is in Heaven.” From here we can conclude that because the Kingdom of God is within us, God resides within us (our Higher Self) and His will (your inspiration) shall come forth into physical manifestation (earth) as it is in Heaven.
Can you see this? Can you see by the prayer that a True Master, Jesus, gave to us that all human beings are not only capable, but suppose to bring forth our heart’s desires because they are the Divine Mind’s (God)desires? Read the prayer again. Read it 100 times! Read it 1000 times! And then shut off your mind, close your eyes, breathe as if it is the first and last breath you have ever taken, and let your heart supply you with the answer.
This prayer, the prayer that the enlightened Master Jesus gave to His deciples to reach the state that he had awakened, is our prayer as well. This prayer gives us exactly what we are searching for. We no longer need to fear, to be afraid of the darkness, because God not only walks with us each moment, God is us! Heaven is within you! Can you feel that Truth?! You are the Kingdom of Heaven! Wow! How glorious is it to know that the desires we have, and the inspiration we are receiving is the Infinite Mind saying, “This is what I want for you. Because we are One, your successes are My successes, your joys are My joys, your laughter is my laughter.”
How wonderful is it to know that the statement the Master Jesus, our brother, provided us was saying that the Kingdom of Heaven is within us, ALL of us! Oh, how wonderful! You no longer need to condemn your brother or sister for his or her actions, because no matter what they say or do, Heaven is within them as it is within you! Because they are God and you are God, you are One!
How wonderful is it to know that when you are scared, or sad, or depressed, that all you need to do is relax your mind so that the Divine may whisper to you exactly what is needed to bring you peace! We are Spirit! We are Truth! We are Love! That can never be taken away! How lovely is it to know that the desires you hold are God’s desires? That all you need to know is that She has provided the way and as you walk with faith, that all doors will be opened! Oh, how glorious it is!
Our brother Jesus asked us to walk the path with Him. He reached a state of understanding and Truth through dedication and perserverance. He listened to that whisper within, and He told us what we needed to do to reach that state with Him. This prayer has a deep meaning for all, and for those who speak it with true wanting and reverance all doors shall be opened! I love you all!!!
With All My Love,
