Guiding Thought

I choose to expand my consciousness and open my heart to Divine Love’s flow within me. Realizing my own Divine Presence, I know God as the Source and Fulfillment of all my good.



I read an article today which addressed “financial slavery”. It said, in a nutshell, that financial slavery is due to basically two situations 1) spending more than you make 2) debt. The solution was 1) reduce spending (and the main suggestion was move to a “cheaper” neighborhood) 2) consolidate debt, create more income, payoff debt.

This article was touted as “insightful” and “key”. No wonder I feel out of step with mainstream ideas of what constitutes financial freedom. Financial freedom to me means being in control of my time by being be able to use my intuition and creativity to serve people in ways they find valuable, and are willing to pay me for. (This is a working definition; it will probably evolve over time, as this is really the first time I have thought about my own definition of financial freedom). Inherent in my definition is the idea of having a business, being a business owner—doing “it” on my own terms. I would really like to hear your thoughts on what financial freedom means to you. What is your definition? How do you think of financial freedom? Leave me a note below, or email me. Help me become clearer on my own definition, by sharing yours.

I did not receive a lot of value initially from the article I mention, but I did realize that one thing I am not good at is bridging the metaphysical with the material. I have high ideals, powerful thoughts, and absolute integrity with God and my Self, but I am not so good at bringing those things into financial reality, particularly as a business.

But that’s one of the things I’m here to learn, and I trust that I am learning it, even now. I am also absolutely confident that I will succeed, with complete fulfillment of and reliance on my spiritual ideals.

I have one short meditation that I do which works with my consciousness on realizing my Soul Purpose. One phrase in the meditation is, “My Soul needs me to become a master in the physical world over form and matter for my spiritual advancement, for the benefit of All.”

And this is where the Guiding Thought comes in: The Spiritual (God, Divine Love) comes through me. This is the lesson. This is what I am here to learn and be. God (Divine Love) knows everything that is absolutely right for me, and also knows how to bring that to me so it is also absolutely right for everyone else on the planet, with only benefit to All. God is the Source and Fulfillment of all my good.

Since I don’t know what that thing is that brings all good to All, I must trust God, and get my mind– which thinks it knows better than God, or that gets scared that God isn’t doing the “right thing”–out of the way.

How do I do that? I choose to expand my consciousness and open my heart to Divine Love’s flow within me.

All of this came out in my drawing today. My mind is expanding, opening to the flow; my heart is open to the flow, and the Divine Presence pours forth. I needed a way to capture the idea of God as the Source and Fulfillment of all my good in a manner that also demonstrates the trust I have in God to bring forth what is for my highest good, and the highest good of everyone on the planet. That is what all the squares represent. Since I don’t know and I did not want to limit God’s idea with my own, I needed a symbol for the idea of “highest good for All”—squares. Sometimes simple is best.
