In that moment of grace,it feels like the door of ‘heaven’ opens up to allow us a glimpse of that sacredness,goodness within ourselves.It is a time when we are actually touching the inner chamber of the heart(soul,spirit,God,etc…)This is what is meant by the grace-filled moment.It is when we do not run away from the ‘mystical call’ either through the profundity of intense pain or bliss but instead look directly into its compelling mysterious force which could make us act spontaneously with tenderness/softness/gentleness and humility.We surrender to the power of letting go(relinquishing sense of control),allowing what is to be will be and usually act with and in kindness to do something benevolent and beneficial for spiritual evolution(changes) and human betterment(for self and others).This is truly the most beautiful experience on the beginning stage in the journey to find our True Self!
In humility we might fall to our knees simply by hearing a word such as ‘love’,peace’,’kindness’,’God’and be overwhelmed with gratitude.In these moments,the barriers that we have been so conditioned to barricade the heart with might start its shattering process to allow the heart to break completely open and be purified!
We are all being called quietly within,not one human being will be exempted or deprived of this moment of Grace.
In my experience of Grace, I was crying on the plane non-stop during the very long flight from Jeddah,Saudi Arabia back home to Vancouver,Canada (Novemeber 1998) after an incomplete nursing work assignment contract.I was feeling like a failure,worthless and broken,lost in life.Yet I felt a sense of sacred surrendering overcoming me,letting go to the goodness, the humility,the whatever I had to face,to face it with courage and purposeful strength.I could feel my heart breaking,tearing apart immensely which I believed the shattering process of the walls of my heart beginning to crumble down warranting a complete fearless opening to face myself, my True innate Self(flaws and beauty).
It is the power of Grace that gives us the humble strength and courage to lead us home inward into ourselves,to see the truth that for a long time we had been blinded by and to be found in the wisdom to understand how lost we were in the illusory world.
