My Self wills only to extend itself. Extending, sharing, and creating as Divine Love, through Divine Mind, is my sole purpose. My Self knows its fullness in Divine Love and wills only to liberate me to fulfill my purpose and my joy.
If you remember from Journey of Abundance, I was working with the thoughts
ALL in All
All is Love
ALL in All is Love is ALL in All.
Another way to think about this is simply, “God is All; God is Love”. Sometimes it’s easier (more accessible), for me to think of “God”, sometimes I am more comfortable with “All”. Recently, I’ve learned a new, deeper meaning of another option, the word “Ishwara”, which I may also use: “In the Yoga Sutras, the word for God is Ishwara: the Lord, Ruler, Master, or Controller, possessing the powers of omnipotence, omnipresence, and omniscience.” (Om Yoga Meditation, Its Theory and Practice, Abbott George Burke, location 93, Kindle edition).
This concept (God-ALL-Love), however you want to formulate it for yourself, has become somewhat of a foundation, for me on this Journey.
If God is ALL, then I am part of God. If God is ALL, then my Self is a Self of God. Everything I do is God; everything I think is God; every interaction is God…Everything is God.
>>brief aside< You know by now that I’ve been working on surrender/trust/letting go/living God’s Will. There is a phrase from A Course in Miracles that I have used in this regard, “I need do nothing”, which has helped me to relax into allowing the activity of God. In today’s context, I have changed this thought to “God does everything”. This removes the emphasis on “I” and places it on God. If God is ALL, then God does do everything. It’s become another way for me to release, let go, surrender my mind to the activity of God. <
Everything is God. Now, look again at the Guiding Thought with this in mind:
My Self which is One with God
wills only to extend itself . God wills to extend; God is extending through me!
Extending, sharing, and creating as Divine Love, because God is within me, this is the activity of God, through me….
through Divine Mind, which is already God’s mind, within me….
is my sole purpose. Because this is the ONLY purpose God has, which is also my purpose, because of my Oneness with God.
My Self knows its fullness in Divine Love of course it does! My Self Knows itself as God, and God’s Divine Love.
and wills only to liberate me …this is all God Wants for all of us, to Know our Selves as Divine Expression, in which we are One with God, fulfilled and free.
to fulfill my purpose and my joy. Because the purpose of Life is to remember our Life in God, which is the only life of Joy.
Do you see how, when you begin to think of God as or in everything, the perspective shifts just that little bit, to actually see the activity of God in All, including within yourself?
