Behind the words–Journey of Gratitude 2017, day 40!

Welcome to day 40! How did you fare? This Journey got really serious, here at the end. I have no explanation for that. But if you like serious…read on! (It’s only a little intense).

This is all for now, for the next few days! I admit, I am glad this one is over. But I look forward to assessing what actually happened these past forty days–I’ll share that with you in the next week or so. In the meantime, relax a bit, then start gearing up–Journey of Courage starts February 25! Whooo hoooo! I’m excited!

Guiding Thought

Love is always with me. I focus my whole Self on being entirely with Love. I tune out distractions and place my entire focus on simply being with the Love that is always with me. This is the return. This is eternal Comfort and Peace: Being with Love, as Love is with me.


Love does not hear words. Love hears energy. Love hears what is behind the words, the subtle movement of the mind and heart, the feelings and vibrations that go into the idea, or concept, of the words.

The same can be said for “the Universe” with the idea of reaping that which is sown. What you “put out”, you get back. But what you “put out” is so much more than words, and it is that energy which you are putting out, to which the Universe responds.

Words convey something that exists prior to the words themselves. It’s that which I want to understand within myself, better. This is something I have been working on this whole Journey, without actually articulating it, or thinking about it in terms of this Journey. I’ve been focusing on the energy behind the words, on feeling what my words are saying, but not saying.

I want to be in touch with those subtle movements of my mind and heart, with those places which God Knows of  me, better than I know of me (God knew me before I was born; God knows my heart better than I do).

Yet, if God Knows, and God is that infinite presence and power within me, that comes through me, as me, then I have the potential to know myself as God Knows me. I just have to listen and go behind the words.

This is the essence of this Guiding Thought. On the surface, this Guiding Thought speaks of knowing Love, of being with Love. But really, it’s about knowing myself, Knowing my Self of Love, as my Self of Love Knows me.

I and Love are One. This is the return. This is eternal Comfort and Peace: Being Love, as Love is as me.
