I’m going to start with a Bible story as an analogy, you can use your own story. It’s actually one of my favourite stories.
“Then Peter got down out of the boat, walked on the water and came toward Jesus.Â But when he saw the wind he was afraid and, beginning to sink, cried out, “Lord Save Me!”Â
Â Immediately Jesus reached out his hand and caught him.”You of little faith,” he said, “why did you doubt me?”
I was sixteen and I went up to Blue Mountain with some friends.Â There was a big group of us so we rented a bus. I’d never been skiing before but wanted to give it a try. In the morning I learned on the bunny hill with an Italian family who took me in.Â
In the afternoon I joined my friends on the Big Hill. I went up in the chair lift with my friend Marianne. And we started down the hill. I was loving it, but all of a sudden I heard something and turned around, Marianne had taken a spill and was rolling down the hill.Â I remember thinking who do IÂ think I AMÂ IÂ can’t ski down this big hill when IÂ don’t even know what I’mÂ doing,Â Marianne has been skiingÂ for a while. I let go of my poles and fell. In my life I now what has taken me down. Lack of faith, I didn’t think I was good enough.
But now God, your word, Creation itself living inside of me, living inside of all living beings. That still small voice inside is growing my faith.
And I have aÂ practice that allows me to live from that place. I go out into nature and I stop moving and I focus on the energy in my hands, my feet, my legs, my front, my back, my head and then I breathe from the top of my head to the tip of my toes. Long deep breathsÂ and I feel Gods light, the holy spirit, consciousness, your word, moving through me, cleansing me, healing me, making me whole and taking away all doubt, guilt,Â shameÂ and fear and then I can hear that still small voice inside of me and I know what my next step is. One step at a time.
Love and Light
