Guiding Thought

Your connection with the Infinite Source of Love is and always has been enough. Love loves you always, everywhere. Assured in love, you are perfectly lovable and perfectly loving with all people in all situations.


I have a friend who lives in Hawaii. He spends lots of quality time in the ocean. One day he said to me, “When you are in the water, you don’t realize the motion going on all around you. You are in it, a part of it, part of the movement itself. It can carry you away before you even realize it.”

Sometimes my mind or emotions fit this description of the ocean, the movement. I am always experiencing my mind and emotions, they are always with me, surrounding me—I am in them, they are in me; I can be carried away before I know it.

The activities of life in general can also be like this. Life is always happening; people don’t generally step out of the movement of life (and keep living, anyway).

Today as I read the Guiding Thought there was recognition of the movement that carried me away, in the form of, “Aaaahhhhhhhhhh…” a deep settling and relaxation. I stepped into a different stream of movement, and I felt a contrast with what I have been feeling. I felt my mind, my body, and my emotions release and I feel something different…Peace.

I realized the movement of Love can also be like the ocean; it can replace the movement of mind and emotions, and become One with the movement of life. I can be in Love, surrounded by Love, living in Love, just as I can live in my mind, emotions, or in the daily activities of life.

It was like I saw three different oceans: the ocean of my mind, the ocean of life, and the ocean of Love. I spend a lot of time in the first two, getting carried away. But the third one is there, and it engulfs the other two. I just have to realize it’s there.
