Chapter 7, IX. The Extension of the Kingdom
“Do not withhold your gifts to the Sonship, or you withhold yourself from God.”
The thoughts of “Intimacy, Honesty and Communication” is still present in my mind.
If I held back from the Love that I have to give then I am withholding it from myself and claiming that God does not exist. Yet extending the Love is proclaiming my faith in God. The extension creates the expansion, creating the joy in doing so.
My intimacy with another allows that extension to be there. It allows the other person to meet me in the sacred space within. Hiding not from my brothers, but joining with them.
I think of a beautiful friend that I have. In this relationship we are in complete honesty and openness with one another. We have such intimate conversations. Nothing is held back. We can even honestly tell one another if an irritation arises with the other person in the midst of the conversation. We know that it is safe to speak. We know that it will only be used for healing and as future weaponry.
I treasure this relationship as it as allowed me to open up and bloom even more than before in intimacy. If the tears are there; they are shed. If joy is there; it is shared. If healing is imminent; it is mid-wived.
It started very simply with no private thoughts very early on in the relationship and so continued the last couple of years. The mutual respect that we have for one another is a gift of love to myself. I have brought into my life someone dear to allow me to extend freely and openly without judgment, thus accepting the love and healing from God. I am so grateful that she is in my life. I do so appreciate our weekly phone calls. I honor her for who she is; my Divine Mirror of Truth, helping me to teach what it is I want to learn.
Thank You Holy Spirit for her presence in my life.
