Finding space

BUSINESS AFTER BUSINESS - Romelinda Cruz-Garces - The Freeman

I am sure all of us have experienced one time or another that urge to just crawl to a corner and be quiet. That tendency to just stare blankly at nothing and empty oneself into space, and just float there, weightless with no burdens.

No thoughts. No images. Just a baring of the self to possibly detox the spirit of all the heaviness of each grueling encounter. And lavish one's soul in the soft comfort of a free mind abandoned into a sacred abyss of deeper meanings in that uninhibited freedom controlled only by the strength of the subconscious connection to the source of all energy and inertia.  Of a seemingly passive fullness of one unfathomable reality, God.

When we are caught in a very busy and stressful day, the best thing to do is to find that space. Scour for that nook where you can settle down so that you can take off all the troubles of the day and just enter into the silence of God where you can be nothing and everything. Where you can lose yourself and loosen-up undaunted by the mighty presence of God's ambivalence. Feeling secure in His promise to cast our burdens so we can avail of that blissful reality of tranquility.

Alive, not dead. Instead teeming with a different kind of life as one is sensitized to greater understanding, deeper consideration, higher wisdom and a more relaxing presence. For God is not in the heavens where He cannot hear what we have not uttered or address unspoken pleas.    

Let us relieve our minds of that hectic pace and just sit back, nestled in the reality that when "Murphy's Law' occurs we have a God who is in control.

Shake off political bickering and the surfacing of greed for power.

Shake off the threats of higher inflation and the lo oming picture of doom over the incessant occurrences of calamities and its aftermaths.

Shake off the growing incidences of HIV that rates one case in every hour in the Philippines.

Shake off threats of losing jobs, the rudiments of age and disruptions.

Shake off violence and the rumors of war.

For all these will come to pass.

And they will PASS ...OVER those who empty themselves in that quiet space where God dwells believing in a promise made over 2000 years ago.
