There is a Perfect Spiritual Idea of Perfect Fulfillment. Our Inner Divine Presence Knows every form, experience, situation, event, circumstance, condition, relationship, and sequence that fulfills our desires. When we are diligent about maintaining our focus of desire on the loving benefit and fulfillment of all sentient beings, Divine Substance–which is the source of Spiritual Idea’s manifestation–flows through us and externalizes in our experience. Divine Presence appears as the perfect fulfillment of every single form, experience, situation, event, circumstance, condition, relationship, and sequence that we could possibly desire.
Welcome to Round 3!
This is where I and you become WE! (See this page, under the heading “four rounds”, for information about how this round changes).
Conceptually, this Guiding Thought is out of sequence. The concept that comes first is in the middle, book-ended by (beginning and end) the concepts that are actually the conclusion.
What is the conclusion toward which this Guiding Thought leads? “There is a Perfect Spiritual Idea of Perfect Fulfillment.” (Beginning)
And what does that conclusion look like? What are examples of a “perfect spiritual idea of perfect fulfillment”? “The perfect fulfillment of every single form, experience, situation, event, circumstance, condition, relationship, and sequence that we could possibly desire.” (End)
The Guiding Thought puts forth the outcome, tells you what to do to make it happen, then gives the specific things you will experience once you do the things necessary to make it happen.
What do you need to do to experience this “Perfect Spiritual Idea of Perfect Fulfillment”? “When we are diligent about maintaining our focus of desire on the loving benefit and fulfillment of all sentient beings…”
In other words, this is saying to want for others (all sentient beings) loving benefit and fulfillment. This is the frame of mind, the attitude, the approach to other people. Bring to your experiences and relationships the desire for everyone to benefit in love and fulfillment.
It is not saying that you need to figure out what that benefit is. It is saying you must desire it and be diligent in that desire. That benefit must be where your heart is and where your intention lies. Because, really…how can you know what is best for EVERYONE? This idea goes along with the 6th day of each round: It is your Divine Mind’s responsibility to figure it out; it’s your responsibility to let it. (see: “Let it be”)
“Divine Substance” (which is the source of Spiritual Idea’s manifestation) is already perfect. By letting it flow through us, to be what it already is, we allow it to manifest for everyone as the perfection it already is.
I am working on this. I am pretty good about having a “for the benefit of all” attitude…but that letting go and allowing the perfection to happen…that’s what feels hard. How do I know when it’s working?
(AHHHHHH!) I am recognizing a bit of a current theme in my life with the “How do I know when it’s working”? That idea/phrase has come up several times over the last 3 months, and it’s been related to devotion and faith. I don’t think it’s unconnected that when I had my freak out last week, it was very much about a crisis of faith. I must be working through something! I guess we’ll see what I learn in the second half of the Journey!
Be well today. Treat yourself kindly. Be gentle and patient with yourself. Allow yourself some small exasperation…and then smile and move on.
