Guiding Thought

We fill our minds with the Light of the Truth of Love. What more is there? In the Light of the Truth, we are Free. What more is there? Our consciousness expands in the Truth of Love, forever One, forever Joyful, forever in Peace.

“What more is there?”

I was up reading, contemplating, and writing for about 2 hours before I got to the business of the Journey today. During that time, I was really in the flow, so when I got to reading the Guiding Thought, it came automatically: “What more is there?”

Sometimes I get in that space of simply feeling connected with something. Maybe it’s my inner wisdom, maybe it’s my Christ mind, maybe it’s the Holy Spirit, maybe it’s something else. The feeling can definitely be described as a flow, with a very intelligent, intentional direction. My mind becomes flooded with thoughts, ideas, pictures that all somehow come together and make sense, creating a whole (bigger) picture/idea. I see so clearly; I know what I need to do.

I think, “I just want to be here…what more is there?”

How did I get here? How did I get to this place of serenity that feels so invigorating?

I struggle! I stumble! I fumble! And yet, here I am. Eventually, I always make it back here, to this place of assurance:

  • Here, where it is easy and natural to fill my mind with the light of the Truth of Love
  • Here, where my mind is so open and receptive that I see expansive ideas distilled and manageable
  • Here, where I have clarity of action and direction
  • Here, where all is right, where all is falling into place

This may even be my consciousness expanding! =)

I am so excited about life, so excited to see how everything comes together.

I’ve been working on surrender throughout the past few Journeys; today I feel like I’ve accomplished something. I don’t feel like I have to work on surrender today. I am so happy and excited that I’m okay with letting things be what they are, however they are. Isn’t that the epitome of surrender?

Grace comes after struggle. The result of doing the work is peace and assurance. Life is its own reward.

Guiding Thought

We lift our minds and hearts to the Truth of Being, to all that Is, to All We Are. We accept our Self in Truth and offer our Self to All in gratitude for Its Being.

Sharing

We are all individual, all unique, but in spite of this, there is only one Self, the Self united in Truth. This is the Truth of Being—the unification of opposites, individual and One as One. This is beyond understanding, but not beyond experience.  We are always our Self, our Divine Self, our One Self, as we interact with the world as our individual self. This is All we Are, the Truth of Being.

All we are is this Oneness, being ourselves and our Self—our individual self and our True Self.

But we think we are only individual. We think we are separated from each other in space and time. We think these bodies are all we are, all that define us, all that there is. But the body and its experiences are here for the purpose of overcoming all we think we are. Perceiving past the body leads to the Truth of Being; lifting our minds and hearts to that Truth opens a channel for us to see past the body, to begin to experience All we Are.

We are so much more than a body! So much more than a mind! So much more than these thoughts!

I gratefully lift my mind and heart to Truth that I may Know my Self as I Truly am, as the Self who is One with you, as I journey through this thing called life.
