Love is Wholeness. The essence of Love is Peace. The essence of Wholeness is Unity. My essence is Love, therefore, my essence is Peace; my essence is Unity. Since my essence is Unity, I share Love and Peace with you wholly. Knowing the Unity of Whole Love and Peace with All is the essence of holiness. I choose to be aware, to understand and to Know my whole and holy self, which is Love. 

The first time I read through the guiding thought today, my reaction was: That’s really cool! I was taken with the progression. I thought about “I share Love and Peace with you wholly” as having two meanings. First, a possible meaning is that I give fully all the Love and Peace that I am with you; a second possible meaning is that we all have equal portions of Infinite Love—that we share All the Love there is equally…and I thought having those two possible meanings was kind of cool.

Then I thought about the essence of Holiness as this sharing of infinite Love and Knowing it…and I could see how sharing and knowing is a working definition of Holiness: someone who is in a state of Holiness Knows Love with All, and Knows that ALL share that love equally.

Then I read through the Guiding Thought a second time. Totally did not get it. It was like my brain had turned off, shutdown. “Am I resisting?” I thought.

So I read it a third time. Words. Just words. No understanding, no insight, no light, no ah-ha.

And I read it a fourth time; really trying to get it again, trying to turn my brain back on. Nothing.

“Why would I be resisting this after starting so strong?”

I kept reading for several minutes, pausing on certain words, letting phrases linger in my mind, trying to will myself to understand, to feel, to see. But no. I never did recapture the wonder of the first read-through.

I don’t know if this is resistance, or withholding, or something I just don’t understand right now. I don’t know why I would resist or withhold from myself these ideas I so desire, everything I say I want.

But just in case, let me re-commit, taking a small step backward:

I am willing to be receptive to All Love, All Peace, All Unity. I am willing to accept Love, Peace, and Unity in my mind, in my heart, in my actions, and in my affairs. I am willing to be attuned to Love, Peace, and Unity in my Self, and everywhere. I am willing to learn of my Holy Self.
