RESTORATION OF THE DEEP WELL

Desert Spirit

 

 May 11, 2010

 

    

It is cold this morning, refreshing, and there is wind.

 

     The deep well is restored to the flow of the pure water below the earth's surface, a metaphor that is aptly part of my study in that I see that the spiritual path and the reality of the Self as our only reality IS the Deep Well that is temporarily unaccessible to us. The Course, in my case, is the Deep Well. The Water is the truth, the wisdom, the knowledge that is in us, unavailable due to the clutter of the world and the earth and the ideas of the body and the ego-thought system. But It is there, deep down, waiting to be discovered, waiting to have Its Flow restored.

 

     So it is significant in that this Restoration of the Deep Well brings with it many blessings. It is the return of action, the return of the good, the return of the nourishment that had been temporarily suspended. It is the return of that which has been waiting to flow again. I see this trip, the events that all led up to the pump breaking and the temporary suspension of resources that did not allow me to make this repair until today as part of the Perfect Order of things.

 

     The Restoration of the Deep Well and all that is within this is profound. For all that had been temporarily lost, or suspended, or sacrificed, or deprived now has ended.

 

     To be with the toxic locksmith is only for me to make this demonstration. And beyond that nothing else matters. I will move on as Spirit instructs me to do so, and as the Flow returns to me all that I am Asked to do in the time level.

 

     Last week I encountered the energy of the Snake. Animal encounters are Spirit's Way of communicating to us.  And as the message of the Snake is one of shedding of the old and the return of the new, the new and expansive ways our lives are to unfold, I see this trip as the beginning of that.

 

     My Lesson is clear - "I will step back and let Him lead the way," and as Him also means truth, "I will step back and let truth lead the way." It is my will, my wish, my desire, to step back and allow truth to lead the way. As it says, "This is the appointed way for you now," and this truth is also synonymous with happiness, joy, peace that is not of this world. And so "I will step back and let peace, joy, happiness not of this world to lead the way," of which the Restoration of the Deep Well is a part.

 

     As I was studying and writing, I thought it would be appropriate for the pump to be bringing up the clear water to the tank. And so I turned on the pump this morning, and the water that came out of the pipe was instantaneous.

 

     And so it is. As the pure water flowed, so did the purity of my study flow. And I offer you this to drink.
