The Winds of Grace
The actions of grace are always constructive, supportive, enlivening and redemptive, and prevail wherever there is receptivity to them.
~Roy Eugene Davis
Roy Eugene Davis, a direct disciple of Paramahansa Yogananda and the guru of our teacher, Ellen Grace O'Brian, reminds us that grace is everywhere, all around us and always supportive. Our work is to be receptive to the actions of grace. Another great sage, Ramakrishna, said "The winds of grace are always blowing, it is for us to raise our sails." Grace is like water to a fish. It is everywhere present, but we are not always paying attention and sometimes feel like we are all alone in this world, dealing with our issues and problems. When we have a regular, steady practice of meditation, we are raising our sails. We become more easily aware of the grace that is prevalent in our lives. Then we can rest in that knowing and relax. Life can be so much easier.
