We fill our minds and hearts with Love, aligning with the Light of Truth. Steadfast and focused on our own Loving Presence, we live in the peace of fulfillment of our own Divine Identity.
I always really like this round, using “we” as the subject. It’s this round that really breaks the barriers of separation, I am able to “see” Oneness; it’s as if I get to glimpse beneath the surface and watch it work, see how it operates [see the philosophical musings here].
I began the Guiding Thought by simply thinking about the first word, “We”. Who is this “we”? I started with my close friends and family, seeing them as we, then I added you, who are reading this, I then included work colleagues; we are all we. Then I thought about the world leaders and they became part of we. And finally, I thought about all people of all nations—we are all we.
Of course, I don’t know all of these people, but with imagination I can reach out and touch them—even the thought of reaching out and touching everyone is enough.
After that, I moved on to the next words of the Guiding Thought and started over with my small circle of we, seeing first myself, then my close friends and family filling our minds and hearts with Love. Then I saw you, who are reading this, and filled your mind and heart with Love. I then saw my work colleagues, the world leaders, and finally all people of all nations filling their minds and hearts with Love.
Since I have a garden and use a hose to water it, that is how I saw our minds and hearts filling: we all had garden hoses “attached” to our minds and hearts, with Love flowing out and in. The water/Love flowed and filled, seeping into all the tiniest spaces and the spaces between the spaces. I thought of the “containers” of our minds and hearts, and saw that if these containers were only a meter deep, but they extended infinitely in all other directions, Love would fill it infinitely. And if that container were only a millimeter deep but extended infinitely in all other directions, Love would fill it infinitely. But the container is as infinitely deep as it is wide, and the Love just fills it!
I also played with the intensity of the flow coming through the hose. Full blast, the container fills more visibly than a trickle, but a trickle still will fill it infinitely. Our consciousness controls this flow: how much Love do we allow to come through?
Then I thought about the word alignment. Since I recently had my car aligned, that is what came to mind. When a car is out of alignment, the steering wheel pulls to one side—the car does not just go straight; if you take your hands off the wheel, the car will drift. My car drifted severely prior to the alignment. Thoughts are like car wheels, our decisions about what thoughts we entertain are our hands on the steering wheel. The thoughts that keep us going straight are the ones in alignment with Love; if our thoughts are out of alignment with Love, we drift.
If Love is Truth, filling our minds and hearts with Love is the alignment—it’s what keeps us headed straight, rather than being at the mercy of misaligned thoughts and feelings.
The rest of the Guiding Thought follows logically from all this:
- Divine Presence is the Light of Truth, which is
- When we are steadfast and focused—that is, keeping our minds and hearts aligned in and with Love—the only result that is possible is to live in the Peace and Fulfillment of our Divine Identity (which is Love).
If you have read this, and if you saw just a glimmer, felt just an inkling, of anyone or everyone, everywhere, filling our minds and hearts with Love, you have assisted in the fulfillment of this Guiding Thought.
May we all live in the Peace and Fulfillment of our own Divine Identity.
