Guiding Thought

Today I relax with confidence in the activity of my Inner Divine Mind. I allow it to express its True Nature of all-sufficiency and all-supply in my life and affairs. Today, my only responsibility is to protect My Own Loving Presence from thoughts that block its flow. If I feel uncertain, I remember my Source; If I feel weak, I remember my Inner Flow; If I feel doubt, I assure myself of my Inner Knowing and I am free.



I am very thankful for all of you who are here with me. Sometimes I need all of myour energy to do this, to figure it out, to remember patience, to remember to relax, and to take the next step.

My subconscious has been showing me a lot of movement over the past 12 hours. Perhaps it is leading me to movement?

The first thing it showed me was the geometric spiral nature of certain hand/arm movements. There is a way that you can move your arms so that it performs a figure 8 movement. Try it–just keep your palm facing up and move your arm in a “circle”–it will naturally make a figure 8. Now do it in a large movement, beginning (palm up) with your arm at a 90-degree angle off your shoulder and ending with your palm up over your head (hold a golf ball in your hand if you need to and don’t let it fall off!).

If you then imagine connecting 3 points of that movement, it is in the same movement as a sine curve. And, if you connect the fourth point to the third point, it follows the movement of 1/2 a sine curve that is twice as big as the first one. I know–that’s really hard to follow without pictures, and I’m not going to do all the pictures right now, but trust me, it was one of those, “Ahhhhhh” kind of things. (If you want to explore this further, check out my resource page on the Spiral Dance–I’ll be adding the pics there at some point!).

Once I started thinking about the spiral nature of these movements, I thought about Da Vinci’s Vitruvian man. The Vitruvian man shows us proportions and ratios of the human body, which means there is a proportion and ratio to the spirals that we make with our arms/hands. I wondered if there was any correlation to PI or PHI or the Fibonacci sequence or… any of that stuff. And, I wondered if there is any correspondence between these larger movements and the spiral of our double-helix DNA. What about the macrocosm-microcosm phenomenon? What about another fractal-relationship within our own bodies? I don’t know; I don’t have these answers. I couldn’t find anything online that could tell me if my thinking had ever been thought before. But I am going to explore this….

The second thing my subconscious showed me was an interlocking gear-system (like a flywheel) of TIME –specifically the TIME for doing these Journeys.

You know how the Mayan Calendar works, right? There’s a small, daily “gear” that clicks through each day, then after a certain number of days, it makes a bigger “gear” click once; then after that bigger “gear” has clicked through a certain number of times, it makes an even bigger “gear” click…JOP36-1


That’s how I saw these Journeys. Each day is a notch on the smallest gear, after 10 days of one round, a second gear clicks through; after four rounds, that gear clicks another larger gear; after that larger gear clicks through 7 times (365 days, one year of Journeys), it clicks once…and so on.

It made me realize how tiny and relative one day is. This day is nothing in the great movement of Time. To Time, now is nothing. And I started thinking about perspective and Time. Why get riled up when Time just keeps going? Why worry? This one day on this one Journey will be as nothing when I have done the Journeys for five years, and even less than nothing when I have done the Journeys for 30 years. Where will I be in 30 years? Today is relative, oh so relative.

This then brought up two final thoughts.

1) My favorite saying: Nothing Matters. Why is it my favorite saying? Because in two words, it tells us how IMPORTANT everything is, and how INSIGNIFICANT everything is. Do you see?

2) This Julia Roberts video, which I saw for the first time a few days ago, also shows us both our importance and our insignificance. Julia Roberts as Mother Nature: https://youtu.be/WmVLcj-XKnM

Be well. Be gentle with yourself. Love yourself. Be the love you are. Strengthen each other. Thank you for being here.
