Beneath words: Journey of Courage 2017 – Day 22

“Words are a pretext. It is the inner bond that draws one person to another, not words.” ― Jalaluddin Rumi.

Words convey meaning. Any time a word is used there is a meaning beneath it. The trick is to get at the meaning beneath the words. Feel the words. Bring them into your whole being, not just your mind. Feel what they are conveying. Listen to the meaning, not to the word.

Guiding Thought

When we attune our minds to the Oneness that is All of Life, we understand our place in Wholeness. We are the very Presence of Life, and this Presence of Life is us. We are blessed through this understanding. In return we bless all we encounter.

Reflection

There are words, and there are concepts. Words express concepts, and concepts can be expressed in many different ways, through many different words. One concept can be expressed through a variety of different words. For example, all these words express the concept of “universal” (“of, relating to, or characteristic of all or the whole” or “applicable everywhere or in all cases;general)

  • broad, common, comprehensive, extensive, global,
  • prevalent, ubiquitous, unlimited, catholic, cosmopolitan.

In other words…there are lots of ways to describe just about everything (and this does not even take into account the nuances in the variety of languages).

I mention this, because I have been deeply working on the concept that underlies today’s Guiding Thought, using different words. The concept has grown within my consciousness. Each day that I work with the concept, I understand it and feel it more deeply.

It started on the day of dedication and commitment for this Journey, to summarize: I dedicated all activity, energy, vibration, and movement of my all of my mental-emotional-physical-etheric bodies, and all of the effects of all of these bodies,  at all levels of consciousness to the Divine, for the benefit of all, including myself.

In this instance, the dedication was nearly equivalent to an offering, as though I am saying, “I offer all of every part of myself to the Divine”. All intention and energy of every action goes out to the Divine, to be received by the Divine. Goes out are the operative words. I am moving my energy with intention toward a specific direction (the Divine).

And then, the Divine gives it back to me: “For the benefit of all, including myself”. What goes out, comes back.

All of my energy goes out to All that Is, only to come back to All that Is, for the benefit of All that Is, including me. Do you see? There is only the Oneness of Life. When “I” put energy out, the only “one” I can put it out to is ONE with ME, and so “I” receive the very energy that “I” put out.

We all know this. This is the law of attraction, as you sow, so shall you reap and all that. You know this. I’m not telling you anything new.

I want to you feel it, to know it, and to understand it as a result of the fact of Oneness, however you can, whatever words you use. And so again…feel it:

When we attune our minds to the Oneness that is All of Life, we understand our place in Wholeness. We are the very Presence of Life, and this Presence of Life is us. We are blessed through this understanding. In return we bless all we encounter.
