I rely on my own Loving Presence to lead and guide me toward the meaning of healing. Seeking the meaning of healing frames all my activity and gives context to all my interactions. Though I may encounter disturbances throughout daily activity, I lay them at the feet of my own Loving Presence and continue to ask, “What is healing?” My own Loving Presence directs me as I listen in the stillness.
After yesterday, today’s Guiding Thought makes sense in a new way. One of the themes yesterday was, “I do not know!” and it was a freeing realization. Today, I understand why it was freeing: I do not know, but I can rely on my own Loving Presence to guide me. I may not know, but my own Loving Presence does.
In fact, with new understanding today, I realize that finding the meaning of healing is not even the point. For as long as I live in a world of perception, judgment, and the valuing of one thing over another, meaning is meaningless, because it is only the preference of one idea (perception, judgment, value) over another.
The point is to rely on my own Loving Presence to guide me. The point is to turn to the Loving Presence within me, that Knows Divine Mind, in everything I do. The point is to encounter each activity, all day, all interactions by being guided by the Self of me, by offering that activity to my own Loving Presence.
The point is for me to get out of my own way! I do not know! When I approach my life and activity thinking that I know, thinking I have an answer (or the answer), thinking “I got this”…I am interacting through ignorance. Not intentional ignorance, but the ignorance born of limited perspective, opinion, and interpretation. Freedom comes in giving those meanings I have created, in my limited way, to the Loving Presence within that has direct communication with the Infinite and Eternal.
What is freedom, but living and acting in the acceptance of what is Infinite and Eternal? What is freedom, but knowing my Self as this expansiveness? With this, is another clue! Any time I act or think in a limiting way…I am not letting my Self (my own Loving Presence) guide me. Is freedom not what I want, what I know I want, truly, deeply? I want to be free in Love, in Peace, in Joy all the time (dammit!). And that includes you too, you know: This is the real meaning of, “no one is free while others are oppressed”.
Be free! Claim your ignorance as a vehicle for freedom! At every limitation, at every moment, in every interaction—give your ignorance and limitation to the Self within you, your own Loving Presence, to take to Infinite and Eternal Divine Mind…and listen as your Infinite Self returns to you, through you, as you.
