Declaring the Peace of the Mystic
Rev Martha Quintana, Senior Minister
I have seen greatness in a baby’s eyes. I have seen every form of color simply by watching the sun rise. I have stopped in awe to watch the geese flying overhead, and just when I thought I’d seen everything an eagle flew in front of me and landed simply so I could admire her. Each of these experiences was God in me seeing the God outside of me. This is simply the land of the mystic; that place where God meets me and all of us.
The Divine is always there waiting to be noticed, waiting to be seen. Yet, It is everywhere equally present, equally known. It is the breath that breathes me and the heart that beats me. It is the absolute goodness of God in those delicious moments when I see It seeing me. This is the place of the mystic, not mysterious but so much more, awe-inspiring.
In this awe-inspired moment, I affirm and declare the simple peace of God for all us. We lay down our burdens and rest in the knowing that we are cared for now and forever. There is never a time when we are profoundly alone. Each of us is always accompanied by that inner light that energizes every single being in every dimension everywhere. So I simply declare that the life I lead is already the one I have wanted. In this recognition of my own goodness and love, I am furnished with the goodness of Love. I am given to the passion of the moment and my own joy causes me to have a good belly laugh. I am alive with God and good. I am so happy about this. I love it now and forever and always.
I am so grateful for this joy and recognition. I am so grateful for the Rio Grande Center for Spiritual Living. It is my community. I am grateful for our new building and for all of the resources that have manifested. I am so happy that all I have come to see is already a part of this Center and this life. It is a good life.
And So It Is.
Rev Martha Quintana is Senior Minister at the Rio Grande Center For Spiritual Living, Albuquerque, New Mexico.
