Welcome to Round Three!
We went through round one of this Journey (days 1-10), focusing on ourselves as the experiencing subjects of the Journey. That only makes sense after all, I’m doing this Journey so that I can experience greater Freedom.
For the second round (days 11-20), the Guiding Thoughts were focused on a “you”, but the “you” was non-specific. You could have been directing the Guiding Thoughts to another person, or you could have imagined someone directing those words to you. Furthermore, the “you” could have been singular or plural, depending on your imagination.
Now we begin round three (days 21-30). This round intentionally joins us, with “we-our-us”. I am not just I; you are not just you. As we, any Freedom that is mine is also yours; I want freedom as much for you as for myself. We are in this together, and as we, we are equal. Let that which flows through us all unite us and lift us!
Love is our natural state; In Love we remember who we truly are; we remember our holiness, our innocence, and our infinity. Love enlightens our minds and lifts our hearts. We feel buoyant and expansive! We are now aware of our Self as Infinite Love, unbounded and free.
Yesterday really shifted something in me. I received the great gift of experiencing some of the concepts that I have been working with over the past few years, and thereby gaining a much deeper understanding of not only what the words mean, but how they apply in my life.
The experience is what we are after; the words are a guide, a reminder, a prod; your heart-felt effort is the magnet.
If you don’t know it now, if you don’t feel it now… keep going. Even now, my glimpse has “worn off” so to speak, life activities happen, emotions happen, daily life pelts us with sensory input that gets in the way of keeping the mind focused on the Divine…I know. But that’s why I do this…I just keep reminding myself and reminding myself, and knowing there is something beyond what I think I know and I keep going…and every once in a while I get a glimpse like I did yesterday—a glimpse so real and clear–and freeing!
The glimpse from yesterday, knowing myself as Infinite Being, knowing Infinite Being as me, naturally was enough to propel my experience into today’s Journey.
Today I feel our holiness, our innocence, and our infinity. In that place of recognizing Oneness with Love, Oneness with All of Existence, there was complete sacredness and awe and appreciation. Everything was holy and innocent. There was great Joy and buoyancy. Everything was completely free in Love.
What is Freedom? “We are now aware of our Self as Infinite Love, unbounded and free.”
Put the experience of yesterday together with today’s Guiding Thought, and it opens up something even bigger:
Love is our natural state: The Source of All is Love. The source of existence is Love. Love can only create Love. Love has only ever created Love. Love is our natural state; Love is the Pure existence of Infinite Being. You are the pure existence of Love. When this becomes even a glimmer within consciousness, we begin to remember who we truly are.
Infinite Love, being you: Think of all that exists, all that has ever existed, and all that will ever exist. Think about all that energy, that creation, all that pure existence. All of that is accessible to you, because right at this moment it is expressing itself as you. You are expressing infinite being. You are not just part of it, you are it, and it is you. You are surrounded and filled with Infinite Love. There is no part of you that is apart from this reality. Your body moves with it, through it, as it. Everything you experience is Infinite Love. You are experiencing Infinite Love at the same time Infinite Love experiences through you.
