Welcome to Round 3!
If you’re new to this process, this is where “I” and “you” become “WE”! (See this page, under the heading “Four Rounds”, for more information about how the Guiding Thoughts change this round).
Divine Love-Light is the Source of All. It is all good, all God. This Source is always seeking expression through us. Our awareness of our personal identity as this Source provides us with infinite fulfillment and prosperity.
How have you been doing? We are half way done! Whoo hoo! Congratulations. Have you been intent and intense? Barely scraping out each day? A little bit of both? Doing the best you can, regardless? That’s all you need do; the doing is the practice, the doing is the being, the doing is the becoming.
Do you find that odd, that I just said, “the doing is the being”? Are you wondering how I can equate doing and being? Isn’t doing what people are trying to get away from? –getting more toward a human being, rather than a human doing?
Being does not mean “doing nothing”. Being means doing with pure consciousness.
And there are two meanings there: 1) doing in conjunction with Pure Consciousness (the chit in Satchitananda), 2) doing while maintaining a state of Pure Consciousness. The first is awareness in cooperating with All that is. The second is embodying the Knowledge of yourself, while holding the Knowledge that All is One.
Sat Chit Ananda, Sat is that never changes, Truth, Absolute Being. Chit is consciousness. Ananda is bliss. Absolute Bliss Consciousness.
One point of remarkable interest to us, Absolute is a direct experience to us. Absolute is a living reality to us.
Now, how could Absolute be experienced? The word “Chit”, consciousness, rescues the experience of Absolute. If absolute were not Chit or Consciousness, it could not become a living reality. ~Maharishi Mahesh Yogi (emphasis mine)
Applying this to the Guiding Thought:
Divine Love-Light is the Source of All. It is all good, all God.
This Source is always seeking expression through us.
How do we express? Thoughts. Actions. Words. Feelings.
Thus, the Absolute expresses itself in our thoughts, words, feelings, actions.
Our awareness of our personal identity as this Source provides us with infinite fulfillment and prosperity.
This culminates in the essence of Satchitananda: Awareness (chit) of our union with the Absolute (sat) expresses through us as infinite fulfillment (ananda).
