Christ consciousness

The “mind of Christ” isn’t intellectual or brain-related. The Lord comes to us and reveals himself when we stop pushing forward, when our conscious individuality, our heart, is still and yielding and open. And so I thank Harriet Beecher Stowe (1811-1896) for this, my  favorite verse from my favorite poem and my favorite prayer each morning :

“Still, still with Thee, as to each new-born morning
A fresh and solemn splendor still is given,
So doth this blessed consciousness awakening,
Breathe, each day, nearness unto Thee and heaven.”
