Being a Spiritual Vixen means coming naked to God. Laying aside all the plans and agendas, all the wants and desires and just being still and know God. If you do this one thing, everything else will fall into place. But like any relationship, coming naked to God takes practice, surrender and commitment. In the same way that you cannot microwave friendship, you can not fast track a deep relationship with the Divine. This is a slow and stead surrender and God is patient. God is crazy patient with us. No matter how long we take and how many spiritual cul-de-sacs we head down, God waits on us. No matter how lost we feel we have gotten, She never gives up hope or cuts us loose.
Even when we pay her no mind, she has her eye on us, and she doesn’t blink. We are each held in her beloved gaze. Even now as you read this She is a smiling at the possibility of your coming home to your Self. If we don’t spend time with her, She is spending time with us. We live in Her and She is in all things. As we commit to getting reacquainted with this Divine connection, we see how this Divine Grace is greeting us around every corner, peeking at us from every face and is in the constant state of organizing our most delightful surprise party… everyday. That’s right. Everyday God is throwing you a surprise party.
The thing is, most of us hate surprise parties. They catch us off guard and make us feel vulnerable and uncomfortable. Let’s be honest, surprise parties suck. But this is life: one big unexpected surprise party and although it can be startling… there will be gifts… and cake. But we don’t think about the gifts and cake. All we think about was how un-prepared we were and we being trying to preplan our lives. Which of course makes God laugh.
Going with the flow requires that we let down our addiction to fear and defense. A relationship with the Divine requires un-flitching vulnerability and a realization that there is nothing to fear. This is a power, a connection that knows you. Every aspect every riddle every wrinkle and in knowing all of you, It delights in you.
Take a moment to breath that in. Imagine an individual in your life that you delight in. That person who makes you feel lite up, the person who you would lay down your life for. As big and as palpable as that love seems, GOD LOVES YOU MORE. God love you even more than all of that. You cannot out love God. So why wouldn’t you want to spend time with the Divine?
