Grace sometimes touches life in such a way that one’s whole being is set on fire in such a powerful way that one becomes filled with a confidence and urge to throw one’s whole existence into the abyss of the Self.
You may find yourself saying, ‘Remove everything. Save nothing. Remove every falsehood from my being.’
Then everything is thrown aside, including one’s self, the ‘thrower’. Unexpectedly, one finds a sense of great unburdening, a completeness, peace and quiet joy within one’s heart. Now there remains an effortless silence and stillness. And it’s not that there remains an ‘I’ that received this. There is nobody to receive.
Inside one’s being, one quietly knows: ‘I am neither a “receiver” nor a “giver”. I am no one.’ And yet, one finds oneself saying, ‘Thank you, Beloved.’
