Guiding Thought

Love is strong! Powerful! I embrace Love and wield it through my awareness of Oneness. Oneness destroys the illusions of the mind, of the past, and of the material world. I move forward courageously with Peace in the Truth of Love and Oneness.


Today has been a rough day. I feel assaulted by invisible forces which want me to be “less than”, that want to wear me down, that want me to give up. Of course, I won’t ever give in to being “less than”, and so I feel as though I have been fighting and I am quite worn out.

In the midst of this, the Guiding Thought is not “helping”. I do not feel uplifted or confident with or in it. But you see, lifting me up is not the purpose of the Guiding Thought, so it’s ok. The Guiding Thoughts’ purpose is change over time, reconditioning my consciousness to accept broader/deeper/more loving and unifying concepts. The change is slower; the sustainability more assured.

I am not sure what to “do” today, or even if there is anything to “do”, other than “do” the Journey as usual…and I am doing that.

I so feel like I want to embrace the Guiding Thought. I want to feel it, have it permeate me, give me strength. I know that the Guiding Thought is right, and that I do know it, deeply; but here, on the surface, when things get in the way, it’s hard to feel it, hard to think and act from the place of Love and Oneness. But I do…every minute to the best of my ability, I do my best to think and act with Love and Oneness.

I think part of the problem today is that I am not in the “now”. I am thinking about the past and the future, and not knowing my inner peace now. Yes. you see. even that awareness brought some peace to me. Now to breathe.

Of one thing I am certain: I move forward courageously. I am Full. I am Loving. I am Kind. I am Peace. And no one, but no one is going to make me betray my highest self, or give in to pettiness.

  1. Do you know there is Oneness in the air which creates and brings Oneness of thought and being? It is an Incredible Force, a Pneuma or Spirit Breath, which is there for mankind, being it His creation. It is the Eternal Power of Love which can grow in each individual and is there to take for each living being.
