Lent 2013 (16th Day of Lent)

Saturday, March 2, 2013
Today we feel the Divine energy of life vibrating in every cell of our body, echoing in every thought of our mind. We recognize that through the power of life, God is eternally expressing through us in this physical realm, infusing us with the eternal power of Spirit.
The Spiritual power of life describes the quickening energy of God as it vibrates in every cell of our physical bodies, every thought in our mortal minds. The power of life acts as a bridge between our Spiritual identity and our human body. Thus it unites us Spiritually and physically. Very Spiritual people may act as though the physical realm is undesirable, while scientists and cynics may focus so much attention on the physical realm that they completely overlook the Spiritual realm. But the two must be linked.
Evelyn Underhill once wrote, "When Saint Teresa said that her prayer had become 'solid like a house', she meant that its foundation now went down into the lowly but firm ground of human nature, the concrete actualities of the natural life: and on those solid foundations, its walls rose up towards Heaven."
