“Father, I am human now. I trust you.”
This was probably the first prayer I uttered as spirit, at the event of my human birth.
I became human at the point when I was clothed with a body mind, dropping into this limited clouded view that is human existence.
The prayer is a statement of faith to the Father, my Source, of my trust in him to guide, hold and protect me as I give up my original state and station of serenity, clarity and self sufficiency – in exchange for limitation and co-dependency.
Serenity, clarity and self sufficiency progressively diminished from the point of that first human prayer; and as the original state of awareness (serenity, clarity and self sufficiency) diminished and dissolved, an ego identity and story emerged to fill that void.
Increasingly, I, spirit , got muzzled and edged out of conscious existence and living. I fell into a state of semi slumber; like a fish out of water.
In the void created by my muzzling, ego and body mind formed a strengthening alliance that was self referencing, self informing and self reinforcing. At its core, this alliance is one built upon and sustained by illusion, insecurity and fear.
Father, I am human now. I trust you.
Faith, Hope and Love – the spirit’s tools to break up the alliance.
I trust the work of God to expand my horizons, guide me to break out of the limitations and to help me step back into his universal expanse which is Love.
1 Corinthians 13: 8 – 13
Love never fails. But where there are prophecies, they will cease; where there are tongues, they will be stilled; where there is knowledge, it will pass away. For we know in part and we prophesy in part, but when perfection comes, the imperfect disappears. When I was a child, I talked like a child, I thought like a child, I reasoned like a child. When I became a man, I put childish ways behind me. Now we see but a poor reflection as in a mirror; then we shall see face to face. Now I know in part; then I shall know fully, even as I am fully known.
And now these three remain: faith, hope and love. But the greatest of these is love …
