Guiding Thought

Through your physical body, bring Divine Light and Love to the physical universe. Heal unresolved issues through loving thoughts, words, and emotions, and become lighter and brighter. Bring light to all you have denied and heal your past-present-future NOW. Every day you are lighter and lighter!


I would like to acknowledge that with these Journeys, there is always more going on than you think. The Journeys appear to be very mental—the Guiding Thoughts are words that correspond to concepts which you then think about.

But as you are thinking, and exercising your mind, and asking yourself to understand, there is more going on under the surface.

Contemplation in this way is a spiritual practice. With spiritual practices, you engage a deeper part of yourself which is beyond words, beyond concepts, beyond understanding.

My point is:

  • Whatever you think you understand, there is always more to it.
  • If you think you don’t understand, a part of you really does.

Think of it this way:

The way you can go isn’t the real way.

The name you can say isn’t the real name.

Heaven and earth begin in the unnamed: name is the mother of ten thousand things.

So the unwanting soul sees what is hidden, and the ever-wanting soul sees what it wants.

Two things, one origin, but different in name, whose identity is mystery.

Mystery of All Mysteries! The door to the hidden.

Tao Te Ching, translation by Ursula Le Guin.
