Im not sure who wrote this...whether it was me or someone I thought very apt at the time I dont know, as I wrote it down in free hand and there is no signature. Usually I take care to write who it was from so that I dont plagiarize, so its any body's guess really??? Nvm. Here it is anyway.
As we quietly, gently and peacefully observe God in action on Earth as It is in heaven, we are witnessing the Glory of God. Practicing this form of meditation or contemplation, day in and day out, will bring us to a state of consciousness where discursive thought slows down and finally stops. One of these days, as we are engaged in this spiritual activity of watching God at work,a second of silence will occur in which there is no thought of any kind. In that split second the activity or presence of God will make itself known to us.

How perceptive of you Tracy Ann. I was staying with my disabled father (strokes) so my mother could go into hospital. It was in addition, could be said to be, a prognostically externalised weeping, as my father was to die one year later and they were the last two weeks I was to spend any length of quality time with him.
Heaven is, I think, on earth when we permit ourselves to see it.

James, Paul- yes the chat is enabled on the other site. As I mentioned elsewhere I actually had a chat with Tracy a bit back..was fun, albeit short as I was on my way to the airport...
The way I see it, as feeble as my thoughts are probably perceived by some on here ( not paranoid, just obvious )...we are all still the same family, we just moved to another house.
