Cracking The Oyster
Happy…Wednesday (apparently)! Welcome to Day 40!
It’s the final day of Journey of Worth…and it’s been a bit of a nail-biter here towards the end. I can’t think of another Journey that’s gone quite the way this one has. That’s not to say it was bad, it wasn’t; it was different, that’s for sure!
Information on the next Journey is in here too, for those who are following along! And now, Sus takes the next 10 days to ruminate and recuperate!
So, grab yourself a temperature appropriate beverage (I’m thinking something COLD), get to your favorite cushy reading spot, and as always…
If I am to be my Self in the world, I must be for others as well as myself. There is no other.
I am willing to be receptive to the Infinite Love of All. I am willing to understand how I must rise above the struggles and pains of the world. I am willing to rise again and again with each call for help, each outstretched hand. I am willing to be the one to choose to change. I offer my pain, suffering, guilt and blame up for transformation, into the light of Love that I may see and give only the light of Love always.
Thank you for being here, for sharing this Journey with me. Here we are at day 40! I have to acknowledge something: I never did come back to addressing what I wrote on day 25. That day, I wrote:
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.
This never became the direction and it’s been weighing on me a bit, because I really strive to do what I say I am going to do, and in this, I did not. The good news is: we have this discussion to look forward to!
I hope you have enjoyed your inner exploration these past 40 days (or however many days you participated). I know I always enjoy it. Today, remember to pat yourself on the back, give yourself a hug, be glad you are giving yourself the gift of your Self. Then, take a few days off, then do an assessment/review in the next week or so; write about how you feel looking back over these 40 days… You’ll see my assessment in the next week or so by way of the “Afterword”. Then, gear up for Journey of Healing! I’ll be here with you–we start June 6.
A couple of days ago, I illustrated how my consciousness has changed (I Epiphanied Myself). This is more pronounced today. When I started this Journey, and before, I would read this Guiding Thought and work at understanding it, and how to apply it in my life. Now, I read it and think “of course”.
Of course, there is no other–we are all one, all in this together. Anything I do for myself is inherently also for you; anything I do for you is inherently also for myself. It does not matter what I do or who I do it “to” or “for”–it all affects all of us equally in the grand scheme.
Of course I am willing to be receptive to the Infinite Love of All. How else can I provide Love to all, if I cannot first receive it?
Of course I am willing to understand how I must rise above the struggles and pains of the world. If I don’t rise above, how will you rise above? If I do not do it for myself, for you, how will we ever do it together?
Of course I am willing to rise again and again with each call for help, each outstretched hand. You are my brother; you are my sister; you are my Self. Of course I rise, I help.
Of course I must be willing to be the one to choose to change. People learn by example; I must be the change I want to see in the world. I must be true to my devotion to Love and Truth, and thereby be True to you.
Of course I must offer my pain, suffering, guilt and blame up for transformation. Transformation through the light of Love is the only way to change the pain, suffering, guilt or blame in anyone, at any time. Transformation, transmutation changes everything. This is the secret to dispelling karma, this is the secret to unraveling death, this is the secret to getting out of the birth-death cycle: Love. Transformative, transfiguring, transmuting LOVE. The old is gone. Love remains. Love is all there is.
Of course I may see and give only the light of Love always. Love is all there is. I must be the Love, give the Love, until we all be and give the Love we are Wholly, Equally, in perfect and holy Union.
