" Wired in Grace:: A Prayer for Touching the Energy of the Holy Spirit in You and in Others" by Bridget Mary Meehan, ARCWP

Jesus went into the wilderness and touched the passionate presence of the Holy Spirit within him *(Thich Nhat Hanh, Living Buddha, Living Christ, p. 21.)

This divine energy emboldened him to challenge the religious and civic rulers of his time. In every encounter he touched women and men, who were suffering and heavily burdened, with compassion, and healed bodies, minds and spirits. 

Telhard de Chardin said: "We are not human beings having a spiritual experience; we are spiritual beings having a human experience." We are wired in, with and through the Holy One, and it is in this reality that we live, move and have our being.

So too, we experience the energy of the Holy Spirit, the living reality of God, within us, grace outpouring and unfolding in every area of our being, to bring healing to ourselves and our world. 

We can respond with understanding and kindness to our family, friends, and those who are anxious and stressed with all kinds of burdens. We can challenge injustice and inequality wherever we see it. We have the spiritual capacity to be the compassionate face of Christ and help transform the suffering of our sisters and brothers around us. We have the power, the divine energy, the passionate presence of the Holy Spirit within Us. One way we can begin is to be mindful of our own spiritual power to touch the energy of the Divine Spirit in us and in others.
