The Old Sea Captain

Rays Of Wisdom - Words Of Hope And Encouragement - The Sea Captain

There once was a retired sea captain.
He skippered a boat for taking day-trippers
To a nearby island and
One day his boat was packed with youngsters.
They laughed about the old mariner.
When they saw him praying
Before setting off,
Because it was a fine day
And the sea was as calm as a duck pond.

Alas, when they were far out at sea
A storm blew up and the boat began to pitch violently.
The terrified passengers run to the captain
And asked him whether they could join his prayers.
But he replied: ‘There’s no time for that now.
My prayers I say when the sea is calm and
When it gets rough, I attend to my ship.’

The same goes for all of us.
If during the quiet periods in our life
We can or will not seek to make contact with
The inner guidance that is freely available
To all God’s children of the Earth,
If they but ask for it,
How can we expect to keep calm in stormy times?
This changes profoundly once our connection
Has been firmly established
With the wise one, the living God within.
Its help is then always there for us.
But first we need to practise and
Learn to work with it in peaceful times,
So that whenever the going gets rough,
We can trust it to be there for us
And show us the way forward.

On the inner level God never leaves anyone and
Each time we pray the power of the Divine presence
Increases and our connection with it strengthens
So much that in difficult and traumatic times
Its full power instantly comes to our help and
Shows us how to handle any kind of situation.
We then instinctively/intuitively know
How to do the right things,
Without having to ask for them.
