We are on round 4! These last ten days, the Guiding Thoughts return to using me and I for the pronouns. See how your perspective of your self has changed through using you or we the past twenty days. See if your sense of self is bigger; if you can include a broader vision of “you”.
You may also choose to continue to take a moment before the Journey to listen to this quickly—it is a thought for others, so that the effects of this Journey ripple out!
Spend about 15-20 minutes with the guiding thought, and then let your heart speak through words, pictures, colors, shapes, whatever feels right. I’ve supplied a link below to an audio of me doing the guiding thought–use it if you like to create, while listening to it play on a loop (that’s what I do). Scroll to the bottom for my sharing…
Day 38 Guiding Thought
Love-as-light streams from my heart to your heart!
We are connected by Love; we are One in Love.
I imagine this stream of love-as-light connecting with everyone in time and space.
I imagine receiving this stream of love-as-light as it returns to me from everyone in time and space.
This is enough. We are One.

You can download this and play it in a loop while you allow your heart to speak to you :). I suggest Windows Media Player (I have not tested other players).
It seems that lately, the pictures have very little to do with the words of the Guiding Thought. I knew that as I was drawing this, but I kept coming back to the words, “this is enough”—and I knew that it applied to the moment of the drawing, as well as any further implications.
This is something I have had to remind myself over and over on this Journey: the drawing is not just about drawing; it’s about spending time being tuned in with my heart, my creativity, my imagination. In this sense, none of the drawings matter. The drawings only truly represent the time that I have spent with my inner self. If the drawings communicate something, if I see something new because of the drawings, if something becomes more clear to me as a result of the drawing…which are great by-products…but it’s those other “things” that are the essential thing. The thing is…opening to my heart, being with my heart, making time and space for my heart. Yes!
It just so happens, this picture is about opening, like a flower. This geometric, somewhat off-kilter flower speaks to me of unfolding and expansion. When I enfold my heart (within), I unfold and expand (without). When I accept myself, (“this is enough”) everything becomes acceptable. This is the foundation of easily and naturally connecting with others through light and love, being One in Love.
No love is possible without first Self-Love.
