The Peace of God

"I beseech you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God, that ye present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable unto God, which is your reasonable service. And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God." (Romans 12: 1-2)
In Tales of the Time Loop, David Icke discusses the possibility of flying. Mind is unlimited and there is no reason why we shouldn't be able to fly but you have to convince your body of this. Try jumping out of a high building and you’ll soon know whether your body and mind are on the same page.

I have noticed that there seems to be two versions of me. There is the me that wants to get up in the middle of the night to have a pee and thinks about food; and there is the me that doesn't think about bodily functions. When I'm in bed and I don't fancy getting up during the night, I switch to the Spirit Self and I feel nothing.

Last night I had a stomach ache signifying I needed to do number twos. I didn't feel like getting up, besides I knew it was also another mortal habit. Then I felt pins and needles all over my body. I called out for help, my way of presenting myself as sacrifice to God. It was as if I was being "lifted" from the body. I was the "peace of God, which passeth all understanding" as Paul has written. It is a peace that is alive and feels like you're encapsulated in a cloud that keeps you safe. In other words,

"He that dwelleth in the secret place of the most High shall abide under the shadow of the Almighty." (Psalm 91: 1)
When I am in the "cloud" I am not breathing for the peace of God is the one and only Life. It is pure awareness. The only thing that snaps me out of that awareness is when I start thinking and thoughts lead to dreaming.

As for the pain and stomach ache? They had vanished. I remained in suspended animation for a while until a thought crept in. But I was able to return to that state by calling it forth.

The spiritual path is a continuous process of renewing of one's mind, of remembering to present the body as a temple for the peace of God to express through. When you think about it, it's an easy way of being in service to God, just let God express through you. When you do, you leave mortal beliefs and habits behind. To make the peace of God your only life takes constant practice. Then, and only then, is your body under its law; and you can jump out of a building and not "die." I'm not sure whether I'm ready to give this a try, or whether it is God's will for me to jump out of a building. Hahaha! Hehehe! Seriously, I have lots of time to explore that possibility. Hehehe!

The following Psalm describes what happens when one is living in the clouds.
[1] He that dwelleth in the secret place of the most High shall abide under the shadow of the Almighty.
[2] I will say of the LORD, He is my refuge and my fortress: my God; in him will I trust.
[3] Surely he shall deliver thee from the snare of the fowler, and from the noisome pestilence.
[4] He shall cover thee with his feathers, and under his wings shalt thou trust: his truth shall be thy shield and buckler.
[5] Thou shalt not be afraid for the terror by night; nor for the arrow that flieth by day;
[6] Nor for the pestilence that walketh in darkness; nor for the destruction that wasteth at noonday.
[7] A thousand shall fall at thy side, and ten thousand at thy right hand; but it shall not come nigh thee.
[8] Only with thine eyes shalt thou behold and see the reward of the wicked.
[9] Because thou hast made the LORD, which is my refuge, even the most High, thy habitation;
[10] There shall no evil befall thee, neither shall any plague come nigh thy dwelling.
[11] For he shall give his angels charge over thee, to keep thee in all thy ways.
[12] They shall bear thee up in their hands, lest thou dash thy foot against a stone.
[13] Thou shalt tread upon the lion and adder: the young lion and the dragon shalt thou trample under feet.
[14] Because he hath set his love upon me, therefore will I deliver him: I will set him on high, because he hath known my name.
[15] He shall call upon me, and I will answer him: I will be with him in trouble; I will deliver him, and honour him.
[16] With long life will I satisfy him, and shew him my salvation. (Psalm 91)
Peace and Love,
