Guiding Thought

The Divine Presence of Love is the most natural energy in the world and beyond. Through the wisdom of Love, understand wealth as an expression of your Divine nature. Cultivate it in your consciousness; express it! Share it! Your love is infinite. Your wealth is infinite. Realize this as your reality and circulate wealth with joy and gratitude.

Sharing

I wrote a few days ago about how the Guiding Thought turns the typical money mindset upside down, reversing that mindset from getting to giving.

I feel like today is a continuation of that. I am (my consciousness is) being reversed and sometimes turned upside down and just generally being shaken up. Have you seen the videos of people inside the giant bubbles rolling down a winding track on a hill? (I’ve embedded a video clip below.) That’s how I feel in my consciousness. I was happily standing upright at the top of a hill, then I got into this bubble and now I’m being tossed about. I know I will eventually get to the bottom of the hill, the spinning will stop, and I’ll re-orient…but for now…I am rolling and spinning.

That’s sometimes the point of these Consciousness Journeys—shaking up the mind to re-orient it to a different place.

On this Journey, it’s a re-orientation to the non-material mindset, opening the mind to the invisible, spiritual causes and effects that produce material reality, rather than manipulating the material causes to get material effects.

John Randolph Price says, “Money is an effect. When you concentrate on the effect, you are forgetting the Cause, and when you forget the Cause, the effect diminishes…You must look to God alone as THE Source and take your mind completely off the outer effect.” (The Abundance Book; Quartus Books; 1987; pgs. 21-22).

The orientation of this Journey is God-Love-Divine Presence as Source. I was raised in the (very) materialist American culture. For a long time, I did not know (was not taught) to reject those ideas, to deny materialist-acquisition thoughts, to guard my mind against the inundation of all the selling and advertising.

So here I am undoing all of that, and rolling, tumbling, being shaken up. The old mindset is crumbling!

One thing I love about doing practices like this—practices that are intended to bring me to Love, light, spiritual evolution (and there are so many things I love about the practices…), is the practices give context to experiences. Things don’t “just happen”…they happen within the context of my intention, my growth, my opening, and my awareness.

Even when I am tumbling about, I know I’m being shaken up for a reason. What’s more, the reason is my choice, it’s what I want.

I want to shift from a consciousness of materiality to a consciousness of spirituality. I want to know God as my Source. I want my power to be devoted to Love, not to money. I want to realize Love as my natural energy and circulate it widely. And, importantly, I know I want this authentically, genuinely, sincerely, and deeply.

Bring it!

We’re half-way there…

Round three starts tomorrow!
