I am there

When we choose beyond the needs, wants and desires of the separated self; when we can turn down the endless chatter of the mind and the background noise of life with it's fierce need to change us; in this divine space, inner peace is to be found. From this inner peace, connection to universal consciousness emerges and with it the right path in life - one that is fulfilling and uplifting. This is the path to 'God'.

Here is a reading called 'I am there' that conveys this awareness. A copy was left on the moon by James B Irwin of Apollo XV for future voyagers...

    "You cannot see me, yet I am the light you see by.
    You cannot here me, yet I speak through your voice.
    You cannot feel me, yet I am the power at work in your hands...
    I am at work, though you do not understand my ways.
    I am at work, though you do not recognise my works.
    I am not strange visions. I am not mysteries.
    Only in absolute stillness, beyond self, can you know me
    as I am, and then but as a feeling and a faith.
    Yes I am there. Yet I hear. Yet I answer.
    When you need me, I am there.
    Even if you deny me, I am there.
    Even when you feel most alone, I am there.
    Even in your fears, I am there.
    Even in your pain, I am there.
    I am there when you pray and when you do not pray.
    I am in you and you are in me.
    Only in your mind can you feel separate from me, for
    only in your mind are the mists of "yours" and "mine".
    Yet only in your mind can you know me and experience me.
    Empty your heart of empty fears.
    When you get yourself out of the way, I am there.
    You can of yourself do nothing but I can do all.
    And I am all.
    Though you may not see good, good is there, for I am there.
    I am there because I have to be, because I am.
    Only in me does the world have meaning; only out of me does
    the world take form; only because of me does the world go forward.
    I am the law on which the movement of the stars and the growth of
    living cells are founded.
    I am the love that is the law's fulfilling.
    I am assurance.
    I am peace.
    I am oneness.
    I am the law that you can live by.
    I am the love that you can cling to.
    I am your assurance.
    I am your peace.
    I am one with you.
    I am.
    Though you fail to find me, I do not fail you.
    Though your faith in me is unsure, my faith in you never wavers,
    because I know you, because I love you.
    Beloved, I am there."
    James Dillet Freeman
