Some people see an unswept floor as a problem; others see it as a project; and some, of course, just don't see it! Character is revealed partly by what one sees and partly by how one sees it. Is the glass half full or half empty - depends on whether you're an optimist or a pessimist.
We all see different things, mainly because we see things differently. A God-inspired man will see God's portrait in a thousand moods and find them all good. He is not afraid of what and how he can contribute to the world, because he never sees failure. He is a master of all things in his life because he knows that "all inanimate objects obey the will of the Father."
William Blake said we might see the world in a grain of sand and heaven in a wild flower. Is this for mystics only? Can we do this? Can we have this precious healing insight? Yes! We need but accept, once and for all, the Nearness, the Goodness, and the Allness of God.
Oh, momma-mia can you believe it is that easy,
God is All, and I greet His Spirit in all others I meet.
I recognize the Presence of God in, and as, my life and
the life of every living thing.
I accept right now an increased understanding of the gifts
in my life and know they are good. I do not judge what God
has inspired as not good enough, not valuable enough, or
not developed enough. My consciousness moves into God-
awareness and I am filled with the mastery of his visions. I
know that the more I understand God, the more I shall love and
understand the Self and all the gifts I possess. For where God
is, there is Spirit, and where Spirit is there is an infinite variety
of expressions. I use my Spirit successfully, sharing all my
gifts with the world.
I embrace the nearness, the goodness, and the allness of God
with a grateful heart. I am humbled when I try to imagine that I
would live otherwise. Thy work within me is ever good, ever
right, ever true. And so it is. Amen.
