Guiding Thought

Bring your awareness to your heart and resonate with its love.

Naturally and easily your heart-love radiates through you.

Love is present now—rippling in to the future, releasing the past.

Today, I continue with the exploration of happiness, and its relationship to the heart and to love. I know that this Guiding Thought does not have anything obvious to do with happiness, so why is happiness taking center-stage (for the moment) during this Journey of the Heart?

The heart is the seat of Love—this of course is not new. But my intuition (dare I say my heart?) tells me that Love is the seat of so much more, beginning with Joy and Happiness. Love, by way of the heart, is the springboard: one leap, and you are swimming in Joy.

I have been opening my heart to Love, and happiness has seeped through the cracks filling all my spaces.

What is interesting to me is that it’s so subtle. I am not giddy. I don’t feel excited. I’m not laughing and smiling uncontrollably. There is nothing happening. In fact, it’s more like there are things not happening. The things not happening are things like: busy-ness, pre-occupation, distraction. These things not happening, are to me indications of what the Guiding Thought is indicating with releasing the past.

I drove the long way to the store today, because the long-road cuts through farm land. There was so much appreciation and gratitude simply for being on a road through farm land. I was happy—oddly satisfied, noticeably peaceful, and simply thankful to be alive, “Naturally and easily your heart-love radiates through you.”

These Journeys are consciousness journeys. Today, I have gained a new understanding of love through happiness; I also have a new perspective of what it means to be on a consciousness journey.

One definition of a consciousness journey is: the process of becoming aware of the Love you already are. This definition encompasses both being and becoming. We already are infinite, Divine beings. If we knew it, and lived it, there would be no need for such things as consciousness journeys; but we are learning to remember—and consciousness journeys help us do that.

Since Love (our Divine Self) is infinite, and can express itself in infinite ways. Happiness is one of those ways I am learning to understand Love…

Love and Happiness…

I think it’s time for some Al Green…
