Guiding Thought

Today I erase all I think I know of my Inner Divine Mind. I am changing. I am changed. All is new. With a blank slate of pure luminescence, I wait, simply feeling my inner glow.


I want this. I invite this. I welcome this!

I allow myself to change, to become more attuned to my Self, more aligned with my Self, and more congruent with my Highest Purpose.

As I wait and watch my Highest Purpose appear in my activities as people and circumstances, I breathe, I smile, and I live.



There is an ongoing theme, a carryover if you will, from Journey of Courage which is: I don’t know everything. I know, I know, it’s hard to believe, but it’s true–even I have to remind myself sometimes that my knowing is limited and finite (at least for now).

But isn’t it cool to think that somewhere within me I do know? My Inner Divine Mind communicates with me–and it wants to communicate with me! And, if I listen and pay attention I can hear it, see it, and see its interaction with me. It becomes tangible and palpable–just not always in the way I think.

This is why I have to erase, erase, erase. Every time I erase, I open myself up to hear Inner Divine Mind more purely, without the clutter of my preconceptions.

No, I don’t do this well, at least not recently. I have been belligerently stubborn about digging my heels in and wanting “it” the way I want it.

But I think it’s coming to an end (on day 38? Maybe I will get some reconciliation on this Journey!). Yesterday, I was faced with a situation (a scenario within the string of scenarios toward which I have been belligerent), and I heard myself think, “If it be Thy Will…”. Wait, what? Did I just think that? Yes! Yes! I did!! What a surprise, because recently, my thoughts have been, “I want this my way!” How wonderful when I think differently without having to try to make myself think differently.

This is evidence of a shift, my friend.

Last week someone said this to me (paraphrased): “Moving every little atom and molecule into place for the perfect outcome can take some time–you have to let it work itself out and be patient. You are like the caterpillar almost ready to turn into a butterfly; your transformation is almost complete”.

He really said that. Now: go to my Facebook page. Really. https://www.facebook.com/susan.billmaier and look at my cover photo. That cover photo has been there since November 7, 2015, the day after I wrote about the peacock and the caterpillar.

And finally, this came across my screen just this week:

creator unknown... If we ever find out we'll credit!
creator unknown…
If we ever find out we’ll credit!

I am just SO excited about what it could all mean!! Patience. Patience. Patience. It will just appear, like a thought transformed without trying.

Guiding Thought

Of myself I am nothing, yet in union with My Inner Divine Mind, through My Own Loving Presence, I am everything and have everything. As I infuse my consciousness with Knowledge of my Inner Divine Mind, my activity expresses this Union and I experience life. I breathe in this life. I smile with Joy and gratitude, and I affirm: I LIVE.



[This was ALL SET to go yesterday, but apparently IT needed to stew some more, because I completely forget to actually hit “publish”. You know how that works, when you’re all set for something and the universe says, “Uhhhh, nope, not yet”. So today, you get yesterday’s (day 37) and later you get today’s (day 38). It’s a sign! But of what? Of what? Yesterday’s entry was predictive…]

In spite of myself My Inner Divine Mind works with me and flows through me. Despite my railings, my impatience, my aggravation, it’s there. It waits. It sends me messages. It waits some more.

How do I know? Because people show me. When I am having trouble feeling my own union with My Inner Divine Mind, someone else’s Loving Presence speaks to me. Sometimes that Loving Presence says, “Snap out of it!” Sometimes it gives words of encouragement in a comment, sometimes it’s words that say just exactly something* that nudges me ever so gently to listen closer.

This is a way, I think, of recognizing the truth of the Guiding Thought. But I should change the words a bit: “Of myself I am nothing, but in union with Your Inner Divine Mind, through Your Own Loving Presence, I am shown I am everything and have everything.”

We are so important to each other, those of us traversing the upward spiral, making the trek, taking the journey (whichever path or journey that is), listening to the Inner Voice, following the Inner Guidance. We support each other, strengthen each other, whether we know each other or not. We are this life; we are in union through Life.

Right now, that’s enough for me to simply breathe, to smile with Joy and gratitude, and to affirm: I LIVE.


*”When I have “problems,” the problem is always that I am fighting reality.  The problem is always that I think things should be different than they are.  I have judged and found the situation lacking in some way.  My ideas (my ego’s ideas) are that God’s version of things is not up to snuff.  This is a lesson about realizing that the only “problem” is that I have judged and found the perfection of what is to be lacking.  I have omitted love from the equation…Everything becomes a path to greater love, even stuff I think should be different than it is.”        -Nancy Bowers
