Success -Fulfillment (1.6.11)

Welcome to round 2! Thank you for being here. I wish for you waterfalls of Divine Flow, beautiful insights, and Joy on the Journey! With this round, the pronouns change from “I” to “you” (see this page for detailed explanation).

Guiding Thought

Everywhere fulfillment is, you are.  Fulfillment is everywhere. Fulfillment is. You are.

Sharing

“Journey” in the context of these Journeys means the Journey of ascension. Did you know that already? Had you figured it out? I seem to have stopped reminding people of that; when I started these Journeys, I used to talk about it a lot. I mean, I say it sort of offhandedly sometimes now, and I did say it pretty outright during the Why of this Journey…but it’s not like I write about it regularly.

So, yeah. I am on the path to ascension. These Journeys guide me daily. I don’t know how long it’s going to take for me to ascend, but I’ve mapped out a 50-year plan with these Journeys.

It is my personal belief that we are all ascending…whether we know it or not, whether we like it or not. What this means to me is that there is a way to grow/evolve our spiritual self, so that we become In-Light-ened, where we transcend the materiality of the world, and literally become light. Jesus did it. The Theotokos did it (according to the Eastern Orthodox tradition). Elijah did it. Enoch did it. Elisha did it. And that’s just from the Hebrew and Christian faith. There are also lots of examples from Buddhism (specifically Dzogchen), Taoism, and Hinduism.

If they can do it, I can do it. So can you.

You know all those motivational phrases you see that people most generally apply to making their lives better or growing their business?

  • Your positive action combined with positive thinking results in success.
  • Success is the result of perfection, hard work, learning from failure, loyalty, and persistence. Colin Powell
  • Success is no accident. It is hard work, perseverance, learning, studying, sacrifice and most of all, love of what you are doing or learning to do. Pele
  • Some people dream of success, while other people get up every morning and make it happen. Wayne Huizenga
  • Success comes from what you do consistently, not from what you do occasionally.

You’ve heard these before, right? And many, many, many more.

Every time I see one of these, I apply it to my spiritual success. Seek ye first the Kingdom of Heaven and all that. I put my energy, time, and effort into my spiritual evolution.

I may not make it. I get that. But I also believe that no effort is wasted, and that seeking is rewarded.

But more than that, this is how I want to live my life. I want to be the kind of person who strives to live a higher life, and in so doing to bring higher ideals into the world.

How do you feel about your spiritual evolution? Do you feel fulfilled? Do you know yourself as fulfilled? Do you want to?

Let your ideals lead you. Let your highest values guide your life. Always strive higher and higher. Become better. You are amazing just as you are right now, but don’t settle, don’t get complacent, don’t ever think you’re done. We have a long way to go, together…but more than that…we have a lot of people who are just beginning to think about this stuff, and they need us solidly on the path, clearing the way.

 

How to Be Light -Fulfillment (1.6.10)

Guiding Thought

I am light. My body is light. I am free. I know my fulfillment: I feel it rise within me, expand out from me.

Sharing

Do you know this feeling? Have you felt your light-body? Have you felt it rise within you, and expand out from you? Did you feel it as you were contemplating the Guiding Thought?

Can you see yourself living a higher existence? Look around yourself now. Imagine yourself, your environment, your home, your yard, everything in your awareness right now, existing in light, in a higher state of being. Don’t work too hard at it. Thinking it is enough, imagining it the best you can. You can’t do it wrong. Your intention and attention take you there, whether you “see” something or not.

Imagine how often you smile in this state. Imagine the peace you feel. Imagine the good will you have toward everyone you meet, every animal, everything.

Why worry? All is as it should be. All is well.

This exists. Go there frequently, daily, several times a day.

Soon it will come to you, and you will find yourself in the line at the grocery store smiling, looking around with love and good will, and you will know.

This is as it should be, because this is what is, this is what you are. And you will be in the world, yet not of it.

Love to you. Thank you for being here on this journey of journeys.

Really Real Reality -Fulfillment (1.6.9)

Copyright Tam Black 2018
Designed for susanwithpearls.com

Guiding Thought

 May those who seek, help others find;

May those who sorrow, be compassionate;

May those who are lost, light a path for another;

May those who question or doubt, give guidance;

May those who worry, lift the burden of another;

May those who hide, see their own light in the eyes of a stranger;

May we all give peace, no matter what.

 

Sharing

You may ask:

How can I help other find, if I am looking?

How can I be compassionate, when I have such pain?

How can I light a path for another if I am lost?

How can I speak wisely, or give an answer or confidence, when I, too, question and doubt?

How can I lift the burden of another, when my own burdens are so heavy?

How can I see my own light, when I work so hard at hiding?

How can I give peace in this time of such chaos and unrest?

The answer to these questions is the same for all of them, and if you are following along, it was answered on Day 6:

“You” (your lower, personality self), can try to limit your Self. And it can succeed in your experience of It, but not in the reality of It.

In the Reality of your Self, there is no looking, there is no pain, there is no “lost”, there is no doubt; there are no burdens, there is only Light. All is Peace.

The Truth is: All of reality is yours, and is You.

The only reality that exists in Reality is Love…a pure, blissful consciousness of the Truth of the Reality of Love. Everything else is your lower mind, playing tricks on you, the so-called reality that your lower self has developed and constructed as its own kingdom that it rules.

The way you prove the reality of your Self is by giving and sharing it. You cannot give something you do not have. You have everything in Reality. You can give everything in reality without sacrifice to either your self or your Self.

So,

Whenever you feel like you lack something,

Whenever you feel something that you identify as “pain”,

Whenever you feel lost,

Whenever you question or doubt,

Whenever you feel the weight of any burden,

Whenever you want to shrink and hide,

Whenever discord disrupts your peace…

Remember. You are the Truth of your Self. The way you prove the reality of your Self is by giving and sharing it. You cannot give something you do not have. You have everything in Reality…This is because you are sharing what is Real, what is Constructive, what is created in Love, with Love, by Love, for Love.

Choose -Fulfillment (1.6.8)

Copyright Tam Black 2018
Designed for susanwithpearls.com

Guiding Thought

My motivation is my choice. My intention is my choice. My will is my choice. In Peace, I listen within for guidance so that my actions are motivated by joy, my intentions are love, and my will is simply to share Joy and Love.

Sharing

Before you go any farther here, consider whether or not you believe in free will. Do you think or believe that human beings can choose how their lives unfold? Or, do you think that there is some ultimate, predetermined plan and humans live a life that is pre-scripted? Get clear for yourself before reading on, so that you may agree or disagree with what I have to say from an informed personal viewpoint.

I believe in free will. I think that we have the ability to direct our thoughts and actions, and, depending on how/where we direct those, we will experience different things, and/or experience things differently. Image result for water forming canyons

And, I also believe in karma, which I will define here as: the effects of those mental and physical actions we have chosen, which leave impressions (like the impression of a fingerprint, or the impression of a gently running water as it moves through rock–even water can carve canyons), which we then re-experience, unless or until we change the thought that created the impression/effect.

Karma is not the same as determinism, but it can be experienced as though it is determinism, when an impression is repeated enough times that it becomes a deeply seated habit, or pattern, like water forming a canyon.

I believe there are thoughts and mental patterns that bring us deeper/higher into Divine Consciousness, and there are thoughts and mental patterns that only enhance our lower self-of-misery, pain, and suffering. I believe every moment we have a choice between these two.

I believe that an excellent use of free will is to direct thoughts and mental patterns to Divine Consciousness. Actually, I’m going to go even further and say, that some days I believe the only proper use of free will is to direct ourselves to Divine Consciousness. But some days that also feels a bit extreme, especially when I am having a particularly hard time keeping my thoughts “up”.

With free will, and the full power of choice, now read the Guiding Thought again.

My motivation is my choice. My intention is my choice. My will is my choice. In Peace, I listen within for guidance so that my actions are motivated by joy, my intentions are love, and my will is simply to share Joy and Love.

Happy -Fulfillment (1.6.7)

Copyright Tam Black 2018
Designed for susanwithpearls.com

Guiding Thought

My joy unifies! Accepting my own joy—acknowledging it, sharing it, and expressing it—heals myself and others. To be wholly joyful means to be wholly love…means to be wholly my Self.

 

Sharing

“Be a dynamo of irrepressible Joy!” ~Haidakhan Babaji

I’ve been pretty dang close to living in the reality of this Guiding Thought! I have been oddly happy lately. Oddly both in the quality of the happiness, and in how uncharacteristic it feels (I’m a very serious person, dontcha know).

The quality of the happiness has been what feels like a combination of energy, peace, and good will. Energy: have you ever watched a horse playing in a meadow on a cool morning, after eating breakfast?

Or watched a cat tearing it up, running and jumping all over the house?

Yeah, the energy feels like that, but totally infused with Peace, which adds a subdued, low-key overtone to the Energy. With all the messes in the world (hurricane and its aftermath, political mess, people so hateful and cruel…you know what I’m talking about), I’ve wondered how I can be so peaceful and happy. I should be covered up in worry, and uncertainty, and distrust, and doubt…but I’m not. I see it. I see the destruction. I feel for the people and the animals who were so affected by Florence, by the West Coast fires, by the Volcano…but I am also somehow peaceful about it…the kind of feeling like “all is well; all is as it should be”. If/when you really live from that space and believe that all is well and all is as it should be, there’s no reason to be disturbed or affected by what is going on around you.

Good Will I am loving people lately. Love as in just enjoying every person’s uniqueness; I see so much value in difference, and in everyone…because everyone is different. And because I have this feeling of loving a person just for being who they are, I also feel like I want that love to support and encourage them, just for being.

What I have been finding is that expressing and sharing this Joy, this happiness comes naturally when I really live in that space authentically. I don’t have to do anything to “make it happen”. I just have to continue doing what I am doing to keep the path clear for it to come out.

It is also seems to be naturally healing. People seem drawn to me more lately (I’ve had more lunch “dates” in the past couple months than I have in the previous year!), and I can tell that people gain something unspokenly positive, or uplifting when we interact. Again, it’s not like I am trying to do something, but people seem naturally more at ease (or peace), they smile quickly and easily, we talk, and really connect (not that superficial conversation stuff)… and I feel like all of this has become possible simply because I have been happy.

Extension of Reality -Fulfillment (1.6.6)

Copyright Tam Black 2018
Designed for susanwithpearls.com

Guiding Thought

Why would I choose to limit my Self? To limit my reality? All of reality is mine, and mine to give! In giving and sharing, my joy increases, expanding my Love, expanding Life!

Sharing

The first sentence today is both rhetorical and impossible.

It’s rhetorical because the obvious answer/response is: I wouldn’t choose to limit myself. 

It’s impossible because your Self cannot be limited by you, by anyone.

This goes back to the discussion on day four and difference between “you” and “You”–your lower (personality) self, and your Higher (Divine) Self.

“You” (your lower, personality self), can try to limit your Self. And it can succeed in your experience of It, but not in the reality of It. You experience your Higher Self through the filters your lower self has put into place. Your lower self dictates its own experience of your Higher Self, and since it is both the developer, architect, and construction worker, it also puts into place the idea that it (your lower self) is the reality of you. Then it believes what it has made.

Once you begin to make decisions that recognize the reality of You (i.e. once you begin to wake up to the Truth of your Self), you begin to see where the lower self has made decisions about your experience of the Reality of your Higher Self without you even knowing it. This is “how” you can think that you can limit yourself.

The Truth is: All of reality is yours, and is You. That is…Real reality, not the so-called reality that your lower self has developed and constructed as its own kingdom that it rules.

The way you prove the reality of your Self is by giving and sharing it. You cannot give something you do not have. You have everything in Reality. You can give everything in reality without sacrifice to either your self or your Self (but your self can feel threatened  by lack and limitation, scarcity and not-having enough).

When you give and share from Reality, your joy increases, and expands your Love, expanding Life! This is because you are sharing what is Real, what is Constructive, what is created in Love, with Love, by Love, for Love.

Everyone is your Neighbor -Fulfillment (1.6.5)

Copyright Tam Black 2018
Designed for susanwithpearls.com

Guiding Thought

In Divine Mind, I am filled full! All are equally filled full. All are equal in Love. I fill my mind with thoughts of fulfillment and remember what I already know. I am determined to fulfill my purpose, to know my Self as Divine Love, and to share the fullness I am.

Sharing

Yesterday I talked about the Oneness of “you” (the self with which you identify–your personality, your bodily expressions, etc.) and your Higher Self. You and your Higher Self are the same Self…it’s just a matter of allowing “you” to be “IT”.

and make no mistake: you are the only one preventing yourself from being your Self.

This Oneness is why the first statement of today’s Guiding Thought is correct: since you are One with your Higher Self, and your Higher Self is One with Divine Mind, then you are fulfilled already.

And, since we are All One in that same Higher Self (call it “one in Christ”, if you want, or One in Love, etc.), we are all fulfilled.

Remember, Love is omnipresent. It exists everywhere, all the time. In equal portion. I do not “have” more Love than you; you do not “have” more Love than your neighbor. Love is everywhere, always.

However, just as I described yesterday about “how much gets through our filters”, it’s the same with Love.

It only seems like someone has less Love, because of the obstructions they have set up in their individual, personal filtering system, that allows some Love through, but not All Love. Some people have lots of obstructions and therefore don’t seem to have much Love. But the Love is right there, just on the other side of the barriers they’ve set up to it… waiting.

This is also why people seem to have more Love. Those people have done a lot of work to tear down, release, or otherwise dispose of the “stuff” clogging their Love-filter.

Similarly, some people seem to have more love in one area of their lives (like pets, or children), but less love in other areas (like strangers, or people of a different belief system). This is because they have fewer clogs in one area than in another area. If you “don’t like” someone… it’s a clog in your filter. Want more love? Work on getting to know, appreciating, liking, then loving people who you (currently) don’t like.

This is the work: Love God. God is Love. Love love. Love your neighbor. Everyone is your neighbor.
