Living From Grace
This article is about Grace in its qualities, aspects and living from Grace.
At every stage of the journey, I have unexpectedly met an exquisite quality of light I’ve come to know as grace. Not to diminish its exceptional elegance, but it has been spiritual fairy dust in my life, bringing goodness to everything it touches. Familiar to us all – even though invisible to the physical eye – grace is a quality best described as merciful, generous, sensitive, and brilliant, yet unassuming.
Each segment of the Path – Incarnation, Authority, Discipline, Responsibility and Commitment – releases the splendor of grace corresponding to its respective stage of development, empowering us to realize and receive it for the cultivation of our spiritual awareness and, eventually, expression in the world. Grace customarily takes whatever form is ideal for our personal needs, usually experienced as encouragement, hopefulness, optimism, invigoration, or peace, as circumstances warrant.
Grace is everywhere, always. Our role is to behold it, and not to be concerned with manufacturing or strengthening grace; it already exists in complete integrity. Grace needs a witness – that’s our job, to living from it. Our responsibility is to seek it out, become sensitive to qualities of elegance, refinement, sensitivity, precision, and detail and then to honor these, simply by directing our attention to the presence of living from grace. Our role is to recognize grace to the best of our ability in any given moment.
As well, the light does all necessary work. We need not direct, dictate, guide, or manipulate the light. The light, in its infinite wisdom, can be trusted to take the lead in all matters, spiritual and temporal.
The universe generously provides grace, everywhere, at all times. The only requirement for access is awareness, which can be developed through a systematic, deliberate practice of paying attention. By doing so, our awareness of grace increases, soon followed by experiences of feeling supported by this sacred vibration. Think of having a small fortune saved in the bank. You can only use and benefit from the money if you know it’s there; otherwise, it’s as if it doesn’t exist! We must be attuned to the vibration of grace to enjoy its benefits. Once noticed, grace comes alive and radiates its light!
I invite you to stand in the awareness of your infinite, eternal relationship with grace, as you understand it in this moment. Be gentle. Allow yourself to be infused and inspired with the light of grace for your own uplift and then, the enrichment of everyone you encounter. Awakening to the presence of grace in your life and consciously fusing with it will transform you into an elegant agent for the light of grace. You will be the one sprinkling us with spiritual fairy dust, quickening the latent light in us all. Shine On!
In Love, Light and Grace,
