I am conscious of the Inner Presence as my lavish Abundance. I am conscious of the constant activity of this Mind of infinite Prosperity. Therefore, my consciousness is filled with the Light of Truth.
Trying to time the reading of the passage with the Universal Breathing Room is challenging at first, but listening to the breath meditation helps me slow down and really try to absorb what I'm reading.
My mind wandered and wandered. Should I cut my hair? What haircut would I even want? I should shave just half my head.
I realized I wasn't really grasping what this passage is trying to tell me. I would read the whole thing and get to the "Light of Truth" part and think, "Ah yes, my consciousness is filled," but get distracted thinking about something the next second.
So I tried to just understand the first line--no actually, the first half of the first line. "I am conscious of the Inner Presence." Am I? What is that? What does it feel like?
I spent the rest of the time trying to feel that Inner Presence. I could almost get there. It was like sinking deeper and deeper into a tree trunk. The branches of the tree that wave around and feel things grew distant in my vision. I felt cool and solid and still.
Full disclosure: there's a tree right outside the window that I'm staring at when I meditate. It gets in my thoughts. I am in love with this tree. So curious what the winter version looks like.
