My Inner Divine Mind is always expressing itself in all ways through my own Loving Presence. This is its True Nature, thus this is my True Nature. I turn to my Inner Divine Mind as the Source of my happiness, my purpose and my fulfillment. I allow it to flow through my Own Loving Presence and appear as all my activity, as every visible form and experience I desire.
The trick is accepting that everything I experience is a manifestation of my Own Loving Presence. I mean, if the Guiding Thought is true, then everything I experience is the result of the flow of my Own Loving Presence, right? If I am really in that space, then it’s not about wanting what I desire, but accepting everything I experience as what I desire.
And this is the trick. Because too often, it feels like I desire something other than what I experience, or what I have. What I want is just “over there”, right around the corner. The question is: is it not attained because I hold the thought that I don’t have it? Is my very expectation of it being right around the corner keeping it around the corner?
Faith is strengthened when I experience the power of it. That sounds ironic doesn’t it? Must I not first have faith in order to experience the power of it? It really is a kind of chicken-egg situation. Do I first have faith, and then see the tangible results? Or, do I see the tangible results because I have had faith? Is seeing believing? Or, is believing seeing? Which comes first?
Well. The Truth is….
It’s both…in the same way that giving is receiving. Giving is receiving in the same way that a grandfather becomes a grandfather as soon as the grandchild becomes the grandchild. When you believe you see; when you see you believe. These things happen simultaneously and immediately…the trick is to be aware and to be in the space of simultaneity: the Enlightenment paradox of being and becoming, of being material and spiritual, of being one and All (or One and individual).
Within the paradox we experience a gap, trying to bridge understanding between both/and–being both material and spiritual, being both who we are and who we are becoming, being both one and All. It’s a lot for the limited mind to wrap its head around.
Persistence with the Guiding Thoughts closes this gap and teaches the mind how to understand the both/and aspect. I am my Own Loving Presence, and it is always expressing through me. It is my True Nature.
If my Own Loving Presence expresses itself through me, and am I not aware, does my Own Loving Presence expresses itself through me? Of course it does.
