I realized that I don't need to strive to 'become', because I already AM. the verse: "BE STILL and KNOW that I AM God", really opened my eyes to that.It's a different kind of knowing, more like experiencing, being assured, feeling ONE with God's presence in me, and around me. since my mind is constantly jumping from one thing to the next, I am learning to focus on this beautiful, peaceful presence... usually no longer than 1 minute at a time, but that really helps me to be more centered and at peace.
wow! I need to listen more to ppl's hearts! It's so easy to react, but not so easy to feel what others feel, and understand why they do and say things.
a friend of mine in our string quartet got very offended and downright mean, when i made suggestions. At first I felt hurt, then I listened, and God told me, I reminded her of her mother. Finally we talked, and she told me that her mother was very strict, and never satisfied with her daughter's performance. After that we had a much better understanding.
