I call upon God’s Name and on my own.
This lesson for me demonstrates the relationship I have with God. When I desire to connect with someone, I pick up the phone and “call their name.” I interact with that person and share my innermost thoughts. I give and receive love. This is why we call upon God’s Name. Not only do I experience God in that instant, I experience my True Self. In focusing on God and my true nature, I see beyond the falsities of the world.
In this lesson, “Repeat God’s Name” is used in various forms and it is repeated. I used this myself in meditation this morning. We are to practice this, the repetition of His Name, slowly. We stop and we listen. We have made names for so many odds and ends of this world, yet not one of these can replace the Name of God and its meaning. Its meaning is Love, Peace, Light and Joy.
All little things are silent. Little sounds are soundless now. The little things of earth have disappeared. The universe consists of nothing but the Son of God, who calls upon his Father. And his Father’s Voice gives answer in his Father’s holy Name. In this eternal, still relationship, in which communication far transcends all words, and yet exceeds in depth and height whatever words could possibly convey, is peace eternal. In our Father’s Name, we would experience this peace today. And in His Name, it shall be given us.
