A Start on the Path to Fullness
In the past I have been stingy with myself, giving to myself sparingly, allowing myself only a modicum of pleasure, satisfaction or fulfilment. It was as though I rationed my happiness because I was uncomfortable with generous portions, fearing that I might be given too much of a good thing. Nonsense!
In the depth of my being, I believe that Goodness prevails, that Goodness is the very nature of creation and, being a part of and a participant in that creation entitles me to Goodness. Yet, I have shrunk back from receiving the gift that I’ve been offered.
To be full is to have no room for more; my glass cannot accommodate more, though it is only partially filled with my Goodness inheritance, and I cannot fill it higher. I’ve been reluctant to displace the inconsequential and unimportant and bitter contents of the glass, because I was comfortable with it, even though the taste was not sweet. No more!
I release that which does not make me happy, that which does not make me eager for opportunity, that which does not make me swell with pride. I siphon off the bitter and the inconsequential so that I may realize completely the Goodness that is waiting to fill my glass.
I will sip the fullness of grace. I will quench my thirst with the fulness of being. I am ready to chug down the fulness of joy. The fulness of time is here!
