Guiding Thought

There is a Perfect Spiritual Idea of Perfect Fulfillment. My Inner Divine Presence Knows every form, experience, situation, event, circumstance, condition, relationship, and sequence that fulfills my desires. When I am diligent about maintaining my focus of desire on the loving benefit and fulfillment of all sentient beings, Divine Substance–which is the source of Spiritual Idea’s manifestation–flows through me and externalizes in my experience. Divine Presence appears as the perfect fulfillment of every single form, experience, situation, event, circumstance, condition, relationship, and sequence that I could possibly desire.

Reflection

I forgot how intense this Journey is. Even I, after having done this Journey 3 previous times, could not–at first– digest that Guiding Thought today. “holy shamoly”, as Gary Drayton would say. So, let’s go back to basics and take it one step at a time.

There is a Perfect Spiritual Idea of Perfect Fulfillment. I grew up Catholic, and I always believed that God knows me better than I know myself, that He knows what is best for me, and that He has a perfect plan for me. Beyond my Catholic upbringing, as I matured and grew more in my in my spiritual understanding, I came to decide that I do believe there is higher (divine) intelligence operating in me and in the world. Thus, I am willing to accept this first sentence (premise) as acceptable.

My Inner Divine Presence Knows every form, experience, situation, event, circumstance, condition, relationship, and sequence that fulfills my desires. This follows from what I said above: there is a higher order and a plan to achieve it, and that includes all of the circumstances that would bring it about. The catch here is for me not to confuse my deepest soul desires (God’s plan) for worldly, material desires (my plan). The Divine Plan has my soul’s best-interest in mind. If I go through life deciding what I think is best for me, without knowing or understanding my soul’s best interest, then not only might I be sorely disappointed, but I may also come to convince myself that there “is no greater plan” (because if there were, why aren’t I getting what I want?) .

When I am diligent about maintaining my focus of desire on the loving benefit and fulfillment of all sentient beings, Divine Substance–which is the source of Spiritual Idea’s manifestation–flows through me and externalizes in my experience. The first question that comes to mind is: What does the “fulfillment of all sentient beings” have to do with me and with my divine plan and higher purpose? Why is the flow of Divine Substance contingent upon my focus on others? Here is how I currently answer these questions for myself:

#1

If there is a Higher Divine plan (and we’ve established that there is), then it includes everyone and everything.

If I want my own Higher Divine plan to be accomplished, then I must act in such a way as to fulfill that plan for everyone and everything. My plan can only be accomplished if everyone else’s plan is also accomplished.

#2

God acts in the world through people. Divine Love flows through us. That Love, through us, is what accomplishes Divine Plan.

Only when I serve others with Divine Love is the Divine Plan accomplished. I must act toward others as a servant of Divine Love to ensure the fulfillment of the Divine Plan.

Divine Presence appears as the perfect fulfillment of every single form, experience, situation, event, circumstance, condition, relationship, and sequence that I could possibly desire. This follows from the above three statements. If I am 100% in tune with God’s plan for me, and if I ensure 100% pure-giving of Divine Love to all beings, then I am “on track” to experience every possible perfect fulfillment.

Do you see the two rather obvious glitches in this? 1) I’m not at 100% for either count 2) If the fulfillment of Divine Plan is contingent upon everyone’s participation in Divine Plan (see above), then in order to experience 100% perfect Divine Plan, then everyone has to participate at 100%. We’ve got a ways to go.

God knows we are “not there” yet. And it’s ok. Here’s the really bright side: God responds to us with as much perfection as He can, for where we are, and what we give. That means that the more I attune myself to the Divine Plan, follow it as best I can, and share Divine Love with others to the extent that I am able, perfect fulfillment unfolds…perfectly for me (where I’m at, with what I’ve got).
