Everybody is born “in the zone.” I mean every soul in a body is not only “fresh from Heaven” but still there. We are not “born” with a sense of separateness, we learn it. We are conditioned. We are taught. We are told. We are “civilized” and “de-spiritualized.” We are “reprogrammed” but not “rewired.” Nope, nobody can change who we really are. It’s still there, all there. The innate connection we have with the Divine, lost to our own awareness perhaps but always at hand. Jesus was reminding us of this when he said, “The Kingdom of Heaven is at hand.”
One needs not even to reach. It is already within, within each of us, all the Power and Presence of God. We are to seek this “Kingdom of God” this eternal and internal land of good. We are to seek it ourselves and to acknowledge its existence in all others, whether they themselves have come to recognize and demonstrate this truth or not. As one finds his way, his way back to his Truth, to the Light of God, he becomes illumined. His light shines. This light becomes a beacon of hope for all others still foraging through the forest of doubt.
But oh to live in joy! Oh sings my soul. My eyes have seen the glory. These words are mine now, my truth, my reality. I write the songs of joy, my psalms.
