Letting the universe fill me...

Um, what?!  The full instructions, found on my tea bag, are: "Meditate by emptying yourself and letting the universe fill you." All I really wanted to do was to find some relief from this nasty head cold with the Yogi Tea, Breathe Deep. I was not looking for a message of false hope. Can I just say that that is one of the biggest lies out there? Believe it or not the "universe" is not waiting for you and is not ready to fill your soul. That is false hope in a fallen world.

There is only one good thing that will fill your soul, that will give your heart freedom to soar the heights of God's amazing love, only one that will enable you to breathe deeply of the clean air of God's forgiveness--that is the Holy Spirit. There is only one God and King and He is reigning even now. The world will offer up all sorts of fancies on the platter of life, but they are all bitter and full of death. There is true peace, true forgiveness, true joy to be found in this life, but it will not be found in the world. It will be found in Christ.

John 14:27
"Peace I leave with you; My peace I give to you; not as the world gives do I give to you do not let your heart be troubled, nor let it be fearful."

I hope you find peace in Jesus this Christmas.

I FEEL like the universe is filling me :D But I'm sure that has more to do with being seven months pregnant than with being new-agey spiritual...
