'Our Undivided Self'

St. Ignatius of Loyola

Extol the LORD, our God,
and worship at his holy mountain;
for holy is the LORD, our God.

- Psalm 99:9

"Our God is holy!" The word "holy" comes from the same root as "whole" and "healthy." When we say something is holy, we're saying it is undivided, complete.

Psalm 99 is a brief explosion of praise and the word "holy" is used four times in its total of nine verses. It celebrates the vitality and wholeness and power of God. When I feel overwhelmed by the trivial problems of my day or bigger concerns that nag at my thoughts, I remind myself that I can reconnect with that complete undivided power and love at any time.

I cannot solve my problems by myself. Even the phrase "by myself" has already divided me, made me un-whole, separated me from God. It's an illusion. I am never by myself. Holy God, the Undivided One, is always with me. When I remember that, I can face any challenge.

Is feeling that one is "by oneself" just an illusion? One could argue that if you feel that you are all alone, you really are! It's certainly a distortion due to a lack of spiritual clarity. I would agree with that. Thanks.
