How can you live apart from God? God is indivisible. God is your Source and the Life within you. Your Oneness with All through God was established at your birth, at the creation of your being. The realization of this Truth is the foundation of your freedom.
My one “big” realization with today’s Guiding Thought is that the goal of the Guiding thought is to realize the realization in the last line.
The first three lines are not there as a puzzle or a prelude; they are there because they are the preparation, the groundwork, the foundation to have the realization.
Words are just words. I had lunch with a friend yesterday who is pregnant. I know what the word pregnant means. We talked a bit about what she was experiencing, how she felt being pregnant, and I understood those words, too.
But there is no way I, who have never been pregnant, can fully understand what that word means. I have never had anything to associate with the word, except more words.
Right now, the same is true about this Guiding Thought. It’s just words that I have not experienced in any way except through words.
The difference is that the more I read the words of the Guiding Thought, the more I allow them to seep into my mind (understanding) and my emotions (intuition), the more I am inviting the experience of the words.
The experience of the words is their realization.
That realization is the beginning of (the foundation for) freedom. This Guiding Thought gets you there…eventually.
