The Eternal Quest
Mindfulness or remembrance of the Divine requires constant vigilance to keep the attention focused on the innermost essence of being, to retain awareness of our own essential being. Not to be continuously carried away on the current of thought and emotion, but to remain conscious and aware. This is the soul’s response to the divine call, and he is forever waiting for us to turn to him. Indeed, he is the one who prompts us from within, and makes us turn.
We already have everything we need, here and now, in the sacred present, the eternal now, within our own being. The One Being is always with us, never far. “Closer is he than breathing, and nearer than hands and feet.”
The divine beloved is our guide, drawing us ever on. Our effort is simply a response to his call. “If we take one step towards him, he takes a hundred steps toward us.” And he is the one who makes us take that one step. His grace is inestimable. His love is incalculable. We live in it, could not exist without it. If our attention is distracted and we turn our back on it, we may think he has gone away. But he is always present. There is nowhere else for him to go. He is helpless in his love for us, united by the bond of shared and indistinguishable being.
So, to find him is the eternal quest, the only journey worth travelling with all our heart and soul. To remain seekers until the journey’s end.
Never to give up, to remain positive, to let go of despondency and negativity, and become aware of the One.
One Being One
