Walking on Water
Our Creator, our Spiritual Parent who is also our faithful guide, speaks to us from within. He is ever-present to teach and guide us in the ways of eternal love and truth. He guides us in the ways that we, in our individual journey, need to walk to move into the love, truth, purpose, peace, and joy we truly desire, not what we may think we desire in our limited understanding.
His “voice” speaks in a language our soul understands that our spoken or written words can only attempt to reflect. His gentle whisper is one among many much louder ones; our society, parents, families, heritage, friends, teachers, authority figures, “experts”, religions and their sacred texts, media, fears, our past, and our own pride and ego.
Our challenge is to follow his gentle leading above all others. Our ability to follow comes through heeding his words in the easier areas that give us the courage to follow in the harder ones, the ones where fear is the loudest. Though, he can use the voice of others, when his voice has the final word, then he is truly our God; for all else has come into submission under him. And then, we hear what we need to hear from the others, for he always gives us what we need when we it.
In time as we continually learn to follow his voice more closely in courage and faith, our lives and all that they entail, inside and out, become established on his instructions and ways of truth and love. There is no other foundation for our soul and the life it constructs that is more powerful, for it is the foundation of eternity itself.
Then, when the storms of life with their billowing waves crash upon our lives, even upon our very soul, then the love that flows from the cumulation of those words give us flight. The love uproots the anchor of fear that causes the waves to engulf us. This love has become truer and more real than anything else we know and lifts us above the waves and we find we are walking on water.
