I choose only to create with Perfect Love. Since Perfect Love is all I AM, and all there is, I accept Perfect Love as the only Source for all my creations. I project Perfect Love outward, shining with inner radiance.
Checking in: I feel a bit better today about all my “stuff” that has been coming up regarding this Journey, more at peace, more nonchalant in a way. But I still feel the bigness of this Journey, so much so that I cannot even see all the pieces. I know this has to do with transformation–which is (I think) an aspect of creation; it has to do with re-creating myself, building something new, and digging deeply to find what is most important in my heart-mind-soul and expressing (creating) it outwardly. The emotions are not as intense today around it; I guess we’ll see where this leads.
My cooperation is absolutely necessary for me to accomplish what I want to accomplish on this Journey. That sounds a bit obvious and redundant, doesn’t it? Let me say that again: My cooperation with my Soul, with my Higher Self (my Christ Consciousness), and with God are absolutely necessary for me to accomplish what I want to accomplish on this Journey–which is co-creating with Source–Perfect Love/God.
This is why the first line of the Guiding Thought is so important. I must choose to cooperate with Perfect Love, and do so willingly and freely.
I have a “Higher Mind”, and I have a “Lower Mind”. Either can choose to create.
Thus when “I” choose to cooperate with Perfect Love, the “I” that chooses must be the one that actually wants to cooperate with Perfect Love–My Higher Mind, my Christ Consciousness.
This distinction between which “I” is choosing has been, admittedly, a bit difficult for me. It has felt like a difference between the ego-I, and the Higher-Self, but those two have been muddled and conflated in my mind. I have been working a long time on understanding which is which and how to tell them apart.
What I can tell you at this point, is that trust, surrender, and release are all a part of the understanding, but in the end (now, as I experience it), cooperating with my Higher Self feels more like simply watching, waiting, and trusting. “I” am not doing anything; “I” am not creating. All “I” do make an inner environment which invites, welcomes, and accepts cooperation with my Higher Self.
This, of course, requires loving myself, loving my Self, loving God, and understanding that Love is really all there is. I don’t know how “far” I am with this; I feel like I am still just beginning to understand the simplicity and pervasiveness of Love, but I can tell you that I have begun to really understand it.
