And your reply, ((thank you)), moves me to share a little of my own experience. It also involves FIRST the peace of God which at times I am having difficulty experiencing when I am with symptoms of desire to withdraw from nicotine.
I noticed this morning while still in the quiet, that Mind IS vast, Raj would say not finite. It is an interesting experience, an awareness of What IS, shall I say, and nicely enough, I was not excluded or left out of it as happens when I look at something intellectually. And it was not overpowering, it did not alarm me or make me feel small. Actually it gave me hope and, once again, a great and deep appreciation for Raj who has nurtured me in the most unique ways with infinite love and patience all of which has prepared the way for me to come to this place.
And now, with all That, I feel encouraged to share, to extend that same Gift of Infinite patience and Love to another in a situation which appears difficult because, my other there, is often of the perception that there is nothing in the glass at all. And I just notice too, that in extending the Gift given me, I keep it alive and safe in Mind.
