Today I forgot to remember the Presence of God in my life.
I was in a hurry.
The television was blaring out unimportant messages.
I had to think about what was expected of me.
Brightly light stores filled with intriguing packages beckoned me.
The phone kept on ringing with an Urgent voice.
The children needed me to be a referee.
At work the computer broke down
And I didn’t know how to fix it.
I was reminded that I had promised to attend an unimportant meeting after dinner.
I just got tired. Too much going on in my mind.

How do I break the cycle, God?
Where do I draw the line?
What can I do the next time, when I realize
The impossible has happened?
I have put God at the end of the things to remember.
My mind is filled with everything BUT the
Acknowledgement of the Presence of God!

My Remedy.
Be still and remember that I am.
I am as God created me.
The most important thing in my life is the Presence of God.
Wherever I am, God is.
I remember to relax and turn back,
Because God has never left me!







Do I really want to wake up


Or do I want to exist in this dream world?


Do I want to know the Truth or do I want to pretend?



Do I want to see past all illusions


And know what is really real?


Or do I want to live a life of pretending all is well,


Yet seeing only suffering and pain?



Do I really want to know that what I see is a product of my mind,


Or do I prefer to blame someone else, chastise the world,


Imagine that something outside of me causes all the difficulties?



What do I really want?


Can I change the way I look at the world?


I don’t know but I must try.


I close my eyes and remember,


I am still as God created me.
