Jonathan

Hi. I am Jonathan. Daddy, Hubby, Writer, amongst other labels. A fish out of water, most of my life. Gradually finding my voice and being guided home by Grace and Love.

Know your self

Do not look outwards to man,… nor up towards to the sky,… nor down towards the earth. Turn your gaze inwards ..To the stillness that is the altar of your heart. The seed of destiny and greatness resides within you.Be still and know that I AM God. Awaken […]

Perspective

There is nothing new under the sun. Yet we are so easily seduced into believing that our problems are unique and insurmountable. We become so easily caught up in the stories we tell ourselves.Naively, we rely on the information from our physical senses of sight, sound, smell, taste, […]

Lucid moments

In my lucid moments, when the mind is quietened, and the cares of this world held at bay, I know this to be true … All my fountains are in God. My essence flows from the Divine. All my fountains are in you Father God. There his no […]

No drama

I choice to note, but not heed my own drama. Like most adults, I come pre-packaged with conditioned thinking and thought patterns. My choice is to not heed the drama and baggage that accompanies my conditioned thinking and thought patterns. However, I have found that it is a […]

Be authentic, be you.

Be Authentic. Be You. Be and build something that endures forever. Bricks and mortar, flesh and blood, debates and controversies, doctrines and belief systems, the pursuits and endeavours of men will eventually all fade and pass away. Yet, Eternity resides within you. Within you dwells all the power […]

Hidden in plain sight

God is not out there.God is right here now, with you in this moment. The moment you know this to be true,Is the moment of your awakening. God has been hidden in plain sight all the while. The illusionary chains of fear that have held you captive, start […]

Life is not a competition

A journey of 10 steps for Paul, could take Peter a 1000 steps to complete.That doesn’t make Paul better, smarter or more special.It simply means we express the life in us differently. There is a time and a season for all. We are each required to walk to […]

True religion

Religion is not an end in itself. I have come to understand that the ultimate goal of true religion is the death of (ego) self and awakening of the true Self in the image and likeness of God. When this goal is achieved, religion has served its purpose […]

Seeing the unseen

Father, I trust you and I trust my identity and position in you. I refuse to draw conclusions or inference or reference from my thought patterns and perceptions. I am learning to not place my trust in the transient, but instead to wait upon the warmth of your […]

The choice for living

Albert Einstein is reported to have said “There are only two ways to live your life.One is as though nothing is a miracle.The other is as though everything is a miracle.” I think the reality for many, including me, is that we take short intermittent vacations between both […]

Trust the process

Have you ever placed an order with Amazon (or some other online service) that arrives in separate packages on different days? Sometimes, not all the items in your order are ready, and so they are despatched as they become available. Similarly, in my journey, I find that sometimes […]

Love is a death sentence

This journey started with a strong sense of myself, a strong sense of my calling, my passion and desire for God, for meaning and for purpose. Alas, what I found was a death sentence!Little ‘me’, ‘my’, ‘I’ was denied and allowed to die. Like a ship that sets […]

Start where you are

There are no accidents nor coincidences in the universe. There is a design and purpose to the circumstances that currently surround you. There is an intelligence that informs the space you currently occupy. Have faith.Trust in the benevolent intelligence that guides and steers your path. God is at […]

Freedom calls

My cry is ‘Freedom!’My quest is re-Union! I refuse to be defined by the past.I will not be limited by circumstances.Fear and doubt will not have the last say. I refuse to journey back in time to past grievances, offences or perceived slights. I will spread my wings […]

Careful for nothing

The saying goes that the best things in life give themselves for free. They are not received through effort, striving or desire. We get the most out of life when we stop making demands of it. When we step into the flow of life, the currents and tides […]
