In our natural state of Freedom, our mind knows only serene tranquility and Oneness with All. Nothing need be done, for there is no more to do. We are perfect, whole, and complete. Satisfied and filled full, our energy overflows to manifest only the Good, the Holy and the Beautiful.
Somehow I have balked in each round when the Guiding Thought says “Nothing need be done”. Obviously, you haven’t glimpsed my “to do” list for today. And yes, I generally have such a list each day. But I guess this Guiding Thought is not about that kind of doing-ness. If I accept the Thought, I also have to accept my perfection, and the perfection of the world around me – And that takes me back to “Desiderata” (my favorite is the Les Crane version) which states that “no doubt the universe is unfolding as it should.” I have a tendency to think I’m not doing enough – Not volunteering enough, not keeping up with acknowledging others’ contributions to my life, not saying “thank you” or “thinking of you” enough, not reaching out enough. When I voice these feelings of inadequacy, Steve will point to the pony wall lined with cards I’ve recently received from others, or will highlight the stack of hand made holiday gifts I’m working on, or the small gifts I’ve mailed recently. He’ll say, simple, “it’s enough”. And I know that I am enough, because I do my best to scatter out the Good, the Holy and the Beautiful. And, darned if I’m not learning how a boomerang works! If we send out the love, the good, the beautiful, in perfect symmetry it comes back to us in an unending cycle of energy from which we can draw what we need, and pass it on.
