Guiding Thought

Why would you choose to limit yourself? To limit your reality? All reality is yours, and yours to give. In giving and sharing, your Joy increases, expanding Love, expanding your experience of Life!



Expansion is the theme today. Feel the energy of expansion. Can you? Let your mind flow and go and grow…what does that feel like? If you’ve done some type of meditation, or if you have ever gotten into that “creative space”, or even if you have felt the endorphins kick in on a long run, you know what I’m talking about.

Here are some words that I like to associate with expansion:

Unfolding: I think of a flower unfolding, opening up. But in terms of experiencing the energy of unfolding, try to feel the quality of unfolding. Try it right now. Clench your fist. Feel the tightness; feel the restriction. Now, slowly, open your hand. Do it again, opening your hand quickly. Do it several times at different speeds. Notice the difference between a clenched hand and an open hand. Notice the muscles as they open and close—notice the process. Just notice.

When something unfolds it generally takes up more space: when I unfold my t-shirt it takes up more space than when it was folded. Energetically this is also true. When something unfolds, it opens, and encompasses more. This is the process of

Enfolding: the process of encompassing, enveloping, surrounding, of bringing into. I think of it this way (in the spiritual terms that I so often do…)—We (humans) unfold into God, as God enfolds us into Him (Her). As we open to the energy of Love, and to the experience of Love in Life, that bit of our unfolding is what we give to God, for God’s Unity to bring into Itself.

This is how “separation” is brought to Unity. We open our petals (representative of the “separate pieces”); as each petal opens, it becomes enfolded into Unity (the Oneness of God).

That which enfolds is the totality of existence. As humans, we do not (are not able to) understand the totality of existence all at once; we do it in parts, portions, segments, pieces. But that which enfolds contains and IS everything, so that what it enfolds is Itself, no exclusion.

At any point, where there is inclusion, is unfolding into God’s enfoldment. At any point, where there is exclusion, there is a limit, a constriction, a resistance to the process of unfolding/enfolding.
