She is. She is Love. She is kindness. She is filled-full. She has all she seeks, for all she seeks is within her. Now she can be who she knows she is. She shares her Self with all and holds nothing back; she gives All Love. The Fullness of her Self returns to her as every form, person, situation, circumstance, and event that renews her fullness. She need not worry or think about what may be…her Self Knows and orders her life for perfect fulfillment. All she need do is remember her Self…and smile, and breathe, and live.

Today I started by imagining acquaintances and colleagues as the subject of the Guiding Thought in order to expand how I approach it. It was hard. For the people I chose, the collage in my mind, there was a voice in my head that insisted, “They don’t care! They don’t care about being fulfilled, or being kind, or loving for that matter. They have lots of nice things, and want nice things, and don’t even begin to care about being aware of the type of fulfillment I am talking about.”

I know the purpose of choosing “unlikely” people is purposeful for a couple of reasons:

a) It expands my conception of who those “likely” people may be.

b) It helps me to uncover/discover some of my own biases and barriers.

It was difficult but I did it! And I accomplished both (a) and (b) through the six people I chose, but it was a struggle to “see” them caring at all.

Two thoughts arose out of this: 1) I reminded myself of the truth that everyone, regardless of my own bias wants to be deeply fulfilled in Love, Peace, Harmony, and Freedom. If I am to help people “get at” their inner fulfillment, I must be open to “giving All Love” and breaking down my own biases. 2) I had to pause and ask myself, “Am I wholly willing to accept and to live my highest purpose?” If I am “seeing” resistance in others, there may be some resistance within myself. So, I took a moment to commit, dedicate, confirm, invite, and welcome (again) my purpose.

From this point of my re-dedication, I became the subject of the next repetition of the Guiding Thought. With the strength of my re-affirmation, I was able to see myself giving All Love as light-streamers extending from my energy field.

I was reminded of John Randolph Price’s description of one of his visualizations: “I saw the visible supply returning to me in waves…and I watched it coming from all around the world, closer and closer until, in my imagination, I felt the waves engulf me and almost take my breath away.”* I realized that in most of my visualizations, I don’t ever “see” the supply returning to me. So in this visualization, I saw the love-as-light, as traffic, on a two-way street (yes, really…a little mundane, I know, but it worked). All of the cars-as-love-as-light were going out from me, and returning back to me as everything that I want/need to fulfill my purpose.

As I was solidly feeling this, my visualization concluded with two friends (much more aligned with their purpose than the colleagues from the beginning) who joined me in the radiating/receiving.
