Cracking The Oyster
Happy Tuesday! Welcome to Day 25!
Well, this has never happened before! It seems Sus has had an epiphany early on! She’s just about cracked this Journey…I love these moments. 🙂 I can only say, I’m a bit sorry it’s not the weekend so I could see her face while this was happening. There’s nothing quite like watching your best friend have a break-through…no…nothing like it at all; especially a break-through of THIS TYPE!
When those closest to us grow, we grow; it’s a weird sort of spiritual symbiosis that makes life grand; they’re cup overflows into ours. Then when we grow, our cup overflows back into theirs…back and forth we go; we into our friend’s cups, they into ours.
I can’t wait to see how this Journey is going to end! But, let’s get into today, shall we?
Grab yourself a temperature appropriate beverage, get to your favorite cushy reading spot, and as always…
There is only one Will. That Will is Love. That Will is our Love, your Love, my Love, together. Only when we will in Love is the outcome assured in Love. Only when we will in Love do we know the results are truly beneficial to all, including myself. Only when we will with Love are we Free and we affirm with certainty “All is as it should be”.
The end is in sight. I know, because I am already feeling/seeing the resolution of this Journey starting to happen. This doesn’t usually happen until round 4! Let me show you what I see, even though (you will forgive me…), it’s not fully formed or thought out or resolved.
There are 3 things I keep coming back to on this Journey: 1) Love, including self-Love 2) Giving/Sharing 3) How we know (the effects).
But, I’ve been missing something. I’ve been so focused on the metaphysics of it all–the Love, the Joy, the Peace, all those intangibles that one experiences internally and personally–that I have overlooked the physical nature of worth. Worth is absolutely connected to material things, like money, but I have not even addressed that (yet).
I feel like this oversight is absolutely right and perfect for the Journey thus far: it is important to solidify your understanding and acceptance of Self-worth, and your connection to the Divine, before trying to understand how your Divine Worth out-pictures itself as physical worth (money, wealth, riches, etc.). If you just go for the physical worth, the money or material things, you miss the whole point. “Seek ye first the Kingdom of Heaven, and all things shall be added unto you”, or put another way, be your Divine Self first, then allow that Self to be the producing force of what comes to you in your material life.
Here’s the bottom line: Material things (like a physical body, food, water, shelter, loving relationships) are necessary to live as human beings. We can use things to seek the divine or we can use things to support the ego-lower mind. The more things we devote to seeking the Divine, the more we are given to use to seek the Divine. How responsible are you? How do you use the gifts you have? Are you grateful, or do you always want more?
This will be the direction for the rest of this Journey, bringing all this together a little better.
As part of getting you thinking about this, I offer these words for your contemplation! What does worth mean to you? Rich, Luxurious, Profuse, Deluxe, Extravagant, Lavish, Luscious, Ostentatious, Palatial, Plush, Sumptuous, Swank, Abundant, Affluent, Copious, Exuberant, Frilly, Luxuriant, Moneyed, Plentiful, Prolific, Prosperous, Rich, Wealthy…
And my current personal favorite:
