I am worth the effort it requires to move my mind to Love. I am worth the time of waiting, in patience, for Knowing to arrive. Every moment, every second that I open to simply being willing for Love to enter is a moment offered to Eternity; a moment offered to healing, a moment offered to Unity.
Love simply settles slowly, quietly, gently, beyond sense-perception. So I must wait in patience and take the effort to move my mind to join the quiet stillness of Love. Here I rest. Here is Peace. Here is all I want and need.
Tam asked me recently if I was getting burned out on the Journeys. I responded, that sometimes I go through a period within the Journey where I feel pretty numb, brain-dead, deflated, or exhausted, but I just consider those days as part of the Journey–it comes; it goes. No, I am not getting burned out on the Journeys. If anything, I wish I had more time to give them; when I really get into them, they energize and refresh me. When I started the Journeys in 2013, I was doing a lot of research in conjunction with them, looking for lots of different perspectives on what “worth” or “healing” or “purpose” mean in different traditions, cultures, or thought systems. If anything, I want to do more of that–I want to get back to doing that kind of research for each of the Journeys, looking for more detail, understanding, interconnections, or more refinement. I am just one voice; there are lots of things to say about these topics, lots of ideas to explore–I’d like to be able to bring those to you as I trek along.
This is relevant to today’s Guiding Thought because in many ways the Guiding Thought is about allowing Divine Order, in Divine Time–waiting in patience. The worse I “do” patience, the more it seems like the universe makes me wait. I really want the time to do these Journeys (and more of all I do), more. But it’s not time, it seems, so I keep going as I am.
Recently a kindred soul wrote:
“If the Universe were to TRY to keep up with what YOU THOUGHT was the “RIGHT” timing, it would throw complete chaos into a perfectly running system. We think we REALLY want something – BUT give us 20 minutes, or a day, or a month, and we’ve already changed our perspective, or altogether moved on to something else.
The Universe only does what We should do – focus on IT’S Intent. IT’s been here a lot longer than any of us. It holds Galaxies together! It made sure YOU were the winning sperm and egg out of millions, didn’t it!! IT knows when conditions are best for ALL parties involved!” (see: Momentum Mikey, Intention and the Finger)
He’s so right! This is why “I am worth the effort it requires to move my mind to Love. I am worth the time of waiting, in patience, for Knowing to arrive.” –Because the Universe knows what it is doing a heckuva lot better than I do.
Don’t confuse waiting with passivity, however. There is activity in waiting. The activity is “moving my mind to Love” or, in Momentum Mikey’s case, focusing on the intent of the Universe. The mind is active, while the body waits. The mind is developing, getting clearer, allowing Love and Intent. The mind is applying effort to meet the Universe where IT is.
Why am I “worth” this effort? Because Divine Will (or the Intent of the Universe), is the ONLY thing that will satisfy me. Momentum Mikey says, “We think we REALLY want something – BUT give us 20 minutes, or a day, or a month, and we’ve already changed our perspective, or altogether moved on to something else.” This is because even though those things might be easy and require little effort there is nothing except Divine Will, or the Intent of the Universe, that will satisfy us. Chasing anything less than the Divine ultimately ends in disappointment.
Either put in the effort to align yourself with Divine Will, or exhaust yourself in vapid, meaningless pursuits.
