The Space of Potential Presence

“The eye with which God sees me is the same eye with which I see God.
God’s eye and my eye are one eye.
One seeing, one knowing, one loving.”

Meister Eckhart

If you are one who grieves the election of Donald Trump you may want to assess where you are in that process before you read this post; grief has no set linear plan for the stages it lives.  If “RAW” describes where you are you may want to read this at a later time.

There is a space of potential presence where we can reside in peace with another even if we cannot be with them in any other place:  in God’s eye.  I am preparing my soul for the moment when I can share that space with Donald Trump.  Who knows what can happen?  Here is a spiritual practice which is slowly working its way into my being. Maybe it will be a help to you as well:

                                Potential Presence Mantra

 

The eye with which God sees me is the same eye with which I see God.
The eye with which God sees Donald Trump is the same eye with which Donald Trump sees God.

My eye and Donald Trump’s eye are one.
One seeing, one knowing, one loving.
One in humanity, growing into divinity.

May it be so.  Amen.

 

In her article, “The Divine Dynamism:  Being and Becoming,” ( in A Matter of Spirit,Winter 2014, available at http://www.ipjc.org/journal/index.htm) Gail Worcelo, SGM, says, “As we begin to meet each other beyond the boundaries of the separate sense of self, a new, enlightened space opens up between us, bringing with it the capacity for deeper relationality and depth.”
