Meditation

While gentle silence enveloped all things, your Word, Beloved, kissed light into creation. Wisdom 18:14

These meditations, invite us into the gentle, enveloping silence of contemplation. They arise from the ground of silence and sing of Love’s desire for us to be one. They invite us to turn into the ground of our hearts, and to follow the stirrings of love into the luminous oneing of our being one in the heart of God.  The themes are universal and may be prayed at any time of year.

Miriam's Song of the Greening, 2020

In this series of four meditations, shared in October 2020, we enter into the ambiance of the impending US elections, stablising our centre in the consciousness of Oneness, in Omega Christ consciousness, in the heart of divine creativity itself.  Here, as part of our Greening Creation Meditations, we will continue to cultivate insistence that limited belief systems grounded in fragmentation and separation – from the earth, each other and within – are not Reality or our essential human nature. Together, we will enjoy what Beatrice Bruteau describes as “the movement of consciousness from God, in God, as God, out into the world, a movement in which the divine consciousness and my consciousness, flowing together, stream out in love and in creative, healing, beautifying, energy to create the world and to make it better.” (Radical Optimism, 132).
