Below are some excerpts from
The Human Experience is the Dance of Heaven and Earth: A Call Home to Peace
by Dhyana Stanley
Life is on our Side
When our intent is to discover truth or realize peace, why not then be open to the possibility that whatever shows up is in service to that?
When there is trust that life is on our side, life now is fulfilling and a completely different dimension of experience opens.
It is then seen that everything visible is on our side. We realize that everything that happens in our daily life is Life moving to wake us up to what we truly are.
The visible is in service to the invisible. The created is in service to that which is uncreated. No matter how it shows up, the world is in service to heaven. It may be heavily disguised or thinly veiled, but what comes and goes is in service to that which is eternally now.
We are not here to believe what Jesus and others taught long ago but to actually discover it. Not in a heaven in the future but now.
A peace so unconditional that it surpasses rational understanding, a love so deep that it even includes ‘our enemies’, a way of life so free of fear that we live without stress and anxiety just as the lilies in the field – all of that is what we are here to realize and express.
To all those
who go within
with fresh eyes.
If your eye be single, your whole body will be full of light.
The real voyage of discovery consists not in seeking new landscapes but in having new eyes.
The direct perception is ever-present Experience.
