Take no Thought
The simple and uncomplicated invitation is to “Take no thought: for your life, what you shall eat, nor yet for your body…” ~ Matthew 6:25
To take thought is to play prodigal, to step out of the Father’s House, to step out of Consciousness, Awareness and begin to try to figure out things and fight shadows, unseen enemies. This is pure error and vexation of the spirit.
Why Fight Shadows?
Yes, we’ve all been there fighting shadows. Thinking there is some enemy on the outside not knowing that the so called enemy is nothing more than a reflection of inner contemplation and some hereditary patterns that we are unaware exist within. Now projecting itself on the screen of space, 3D world, and the unskilled puny human mind – five forms of sensing – reacts and puts up a fight on the so called enemy not knowing it is mere shadows.
The Allness of God
It is always illuminating when one comes across enlightened souls that understand the simplicity of life based on the Allness of God and can articulate it brilliantly. Such a person I have recently come across is Herb Fitch and he elaborates this Truth of taking no thought as follows:
…now the thoughts of God become your thoughts, and this is your daily bread. The thoughts of God become your activity and “as the Father worketh hitherto, you work.”
There is a rhythmic One expression. There is no Infinite interpreted by the finite you, but rather, the Infinite expressing Itself as you, and this is the marriage feast, called the Mystical Marriage.
It is here that we walk in the Father and the Father in us, and all power in the world, all pretense of power, all other powers than the Father, are seen to be a nothingness; without power.
Here you’re not concerned about a mortal body although you appear in one. You’re not concerned about sight or hearing, for you have eyes to see that the world cannot see.
You “take no thought for your life, nor what raiment ye should wear” because your raiment is no longer the clothing that adorns the mortal form. Your raiment is your own golden wedding garment, the body of the Soul.
It is for this purpose that we have been trained and are being trained by the Invisible Consciousness of Christ, lifting us, preparing us, for this feast of the Mystical Marriage in which we are fed only by the Divine thought—in which all human thought is dead.
We are crucified to human thought and resurrected in Divine thought while in the flesh, and it is here that you know the guidance and the power of the Spirit is upon you.
“I in the midst of thee,” shows Its might for all that this world would call power falls at your feet.”
Why Complicate Things
Why complicate things, the simple invitation is to: “Take no Thought…”
To your freedom.
