Teacher Ophelius: “Today, my dear friends, we will take a ‘time-out’ and release all the troubling thoughts and confusion we have and simply close our eyes, call on our Father, and ‘let-go’ of all the cares of the world. It is sometimes needful to re-align our energy and to become grounded – to release the ‘static build-up’ caused by too much thinking; by harboring the energy of disappointment and the defeating feelings of living in a troubled world. Let us therefore go to the Father now and seek the peace that surpasses all understanding.
“Please join me in a short prayer:
“It matters not, Father, where I am. I could be at the top of a mountain sitting in silence, or at my desk surrounded by the busyness of the day, and yet you are always there ready to receive me. I close my eyes and ask to come into your presence, and I feel your warm welcome. Father, I am weary of heart and I feel like the world is against me and my burdens are heavy. You know my true heart, Father, and I need not explain it all to you in words, yet you hold no conclusions about me – I am transparent, and you see all, and know all. Fill me with your peace, Father, and wash away all my confusion. Your unconditional love is all that I seek in this moment. You pour it over me generously – it is warm and feels like home. Tears begin to well up in me; I open my heart and throw my arms around you, Father, and I feel your strong embrace.
“I sense this renewing energy within me as I release this tension to you, Father, and you give me that peace and assurance that all is well. You bring me into the hallowed space where you are and let me look down upon this world where the confusion stirs, and I see things from a higher place. I feel your comforting hand on my shoulder, and I see you point to all those places where only love can fill the gaps that stand between the hearts of men and women. I feel lighter now, like a great weight has been lifted from my shoulders, and I have a knowing deep within as if I have the answers to my own problems. I thank you, Father, for receiving me and reminding me that your Spirit is within me and that I always have your guidance available to me whenever I choose to seek your help.
“I love you, Father, and I stand stronger for having sought your council. I am at peace and my soul is filled with your divine love. I thank you, Father, for this precious moment where we meet – between time and eternity.
“Peace to you,
