When I mention communion people tend to think about the Christian sacrament. When I speak of communion I think of a spiritual connection both of intellect and emotion. Communion is the time I spend in prayer and meditation talking and listening to God. Communion is created through dedicated and passionate communication. Almost half of all marriages dissolve because not enough time is dedicated to communication and therefore communion never exists. Without communion there can not be love.
I learned dedication decades ago when I found myself so depressed that the only thoughts I had were escape strategies including suicide. In my habits of trying to fill my spiritual needs with material stuff, a course in selfishness, I created a separation from God that almost literally killed me. The more I tried to fill my gaping hole the larger the hole got. I finally hit my bottom and God was there to catch me. I have since given my life to God, as I understand, and practice never not thinking of God.
To develop a constant communication with God I must do my part and commune with God. I must offer God a permanent and perpetual place in my life and not just try to make room for God. When I put God first in my life the rest of my life goes well. When I try to make my life go well in order to find time for God I can’t seem to find the time because my life is chaos. When I am trying to play God, God stands back as God has no need to battle with me and I am ludicrous in thinking I can win in war with God.
I surrender in the morning when I awake. I don’t wait until I have taken control. I take a few minutes to read spiritual thoughts, letting them sink in. I pray, asking God for his wisdom and guidance to flow through me. I then meditate and wait for intuitive thought, which always comes if I stay relaxed and surrendered. God is omnipresent, omnipotent and omniscient so I get what I ask for; good or bad. God wants to provide me with my heart’s desire and I will only find it in communion with God. This is why I always leave you with…
Your Life is PERFECT!
