My spirit is eternally ripe for the transformation of my human experience. Life is always ready to respond to me with Grace. This responsiveness is the miracle of every moment. I really like the word “ripe”, it means that the time is now, all systems are go NOW for a change in consciousness, a reordering, a requalifying of whatever has been.
Ernest Holmes speaks of how our thoughts and our beliefs can create a mold for Divine Intelligence to flow into. If my mold is based firmly on past experience I can only continue to re-experience what has already been. If I want to have a new experience I must either break or dissolve the old mold of my consciousness so that I can expand into a grander more fulfilling mold. The time is always ripe to release the old mold of my consciousness for an expanded version.
The trick is that no one can make the decision for me. I’ve learned that no one can CHOOSE the expansion for me. No one can GIVE it to me. I am responsible for activating it in myself. I must maintain a place within myself that is receptive to the greater yet to be. If I’m looking for someone else to activate it for me, then I’m in the mode of the victim where life happens TO me.
In his powerful sermon “Remaining Awake Through a Great Revolution” Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr reminds us that the Spirit is always ripe. He says, “–human progress — comes through the tireless efforts and the persistent work of dedicated individuals who are willing to be co-workers with God– we must help time and realize that the time is always ripe to do right.”
Today I am ripe and ready. I affirm that Life doesn’t happen TO me it happens THROUGH me. Today I seek first to be aware. The time is ALWAYS ripe to be more aware; to be more willing to see, really see. Today I am awake to the truth that my life is the result of a gzillion choices made every day by ME. Today my choices are made in full awareness of my unprecedented spiritual potential. In my ripeness are grace and miracles. Today I feel the ripeness that is my Spiritual Potential. Grateful, I am aware that I live in a field of love intelligence. From here I realize all that I need has indeed already been given to me.
