I found this song the other day on youtube that I really love. I love Jason Mraz and when I found this song by him, it made me very happy. The song has so many messages in it that really touched me and really helped me feel at peace. I find that uplifting music is always a great way for me to feel more relaxed and realize that other people feel or think the same things. I enjoy listening to songs or artists that express deep inner thoughts and share a part of their spiritual journey, (something that a lot of people don’t really want to talk about or acknowledge) because that is where my head is at 99, if not 100 percent of the time.
This song especially touches on fear of not being one with God. There is a part of the song too about our children and how we can’t raise our children perfectly or have them turn out the way we want to because they are their own unique selves and have their own journey to experience. It really helped me in acknowledging that much of my perfectionism and why I have to always try and do everything is still a fear of not being lovable or fearing not being close to God. That somehow I always have to do something to earn that. I don’t know if anyone out there can relate, but I thought that this song has a powerful message that someone might also need to hear today.
To me the song is about not having to be afraid of losing God or love because we are all already “in the heart of God.” We were born of God and of spirit and there is nothing that we could ever do that will take that away from us. We don’t have to strive to get any closer or fear that we might lose our spirituality. God is not somewhere out there, something we have to search for or earn the love and approval of, but God is every breath we breathe and every moment we experience in life. It reminds me also of a quote, “Like air to the bird, like water to the fish, so is being to the human.” We are so much apart of God that we don’t even know it. Why should we fear or ever have to feel anything but total trust and peace?
God Rests In Reason – Jason Mraz
You were born together
and together you shall be forever
until death could scatter
It wouldn’t matter in the memories of god above
let the wind of heaven dance between you too
allowing time and space to bring you closer to everlasting love
What do you do when god moves through you?
When love beckons
its ways are often hard and steep
and its wings enfold
you yield to all that it speaks
though a sword it might be hidden there among its pinions
oh you may wear the wound that through it spoke to you
believe in all that voice and follow through
So what should you do when god moves through you?
Just remember that love possesses nothing
nor would it ever be possessed
love is love sufficient unto love
and you can figure out the rest
God rests in reason
so what should you do, oh oh
when god moves through you
Well your children will not be your children
They are the daughters, and the son of a beginning
they will come through your womb but not be coming from you
they will be with you, but they do not belong to you
you can give them your love but not your thoughts
for they’ll arrive with their own hearts
they’re the coming of angels this blessed season
and then they’ll sing how god rests in reason
God rests in reason
Well its reason enough to prove
that god moves through you
And think not you can direct the course of
love itself directs the course of love
believe not god is in your heart, child
but rather you’re in the heart of god
Believe in love. Believe in life. Believe in everything you’ve got.
God rests in reason.
WOW! beautiful! We are going through the adoption process right now for a little girl and the part about the children had me balling! thanks for sharing 🙂
all beautiful! “they will be with you, but they do not belong to you” so true, they are beings come to us for this experience, not something for us to control, but to experience lesson through. God is within us, in every bit of being throughout this universe.
This is very moving…that is all I can say right now.
