August 16 Sunday Service: Non-Resistance

Sunday Service with Rev. Matt Purinton, guest speaker

Message from Rev. Pat Bessey:

As I continue my vacation, I am grateful for another mystical experience for you to read about. This came from Don Labbe; thank you Don for sharing.

Don wrote this to me: I am not sure if this qualifies for a mystical experience, but here goes.

On Monday I woke up at 5 a.m. feeling a lot of fear, I was worried that the muscles of my right knee were not healing properly, I was worried that I would be in pain forever, that I would not ever walk properly again, that I could not be happy if I was in pain all the time. I was in a pretty dark place. I understood that most of what I was feeling was a response to limiting beliefs; while that helped some, I still did not FEEL much better.

I drifted off to sleep and had a dream that I was confronting someone trying to threaten me. He tried to punch me and tried to hit me with various objects or threw them at me. I very quickly came to the conclusion that he was a bully and did not pose a real threat. While I never struck him, I did neutralize him by not backing down, deflecting his blows and asserting myself. When I awoke, my feelings had changed. I felt my healing process was on track and I could handle whatever came my way. I was sent a message that I could relate to i.e. my martial arts training.

You can share this with others if it would be helpful.

I will be back with you on Sunday sharing about the life of the Middle Age mystic, Hildegard of Bingen.

You are a blessing in my life,
Rev. Patricia Bessey
