The paradox of the simultaneous immanence and transcendence of divine Consciousness intrigues me. Recently I was contemplating the paradox in being able to feel that immutable silence at the heart of the play of Consciousness. And so, in the midst of my ordinary daily activity, I enjoy the feeling of movement while remaining still within.
I love embracing this understanding: that we can be rock-solid and steadily anchored in this unchanging, timeless light, while at the same time we can dance in the play of this world, playing our particular part to the hilt and knowing that our actions can be inspired from that highest place within the heart.
I also recognize that I need to practice meditation faithfully to gain trust in my Self.

The Message has introduced so many questions about the nature of time. I am so grateful for these definitions—they give rich nourishment to my mind, attune my focus, and fire up my longing to deepen my understanding. Thank you!

Two things stood out for me as I read this commentary on the word Meditate
. The first was how sublime and exalted an understanding of meditation we are given on this path. The second was this phrase: our firm intention to experience the Self
. I know that the divine power of grace is always with us. This phrase reminded me that my self-effort includes taking the time to mentally state my intention, and consciously renewing it each time I sit for meditation.
