Welcome to Round Four!
Here we are, on the final stretch. Are you feeling “plodding” or “dashing”? The perception of time can change during the Journeys. Sometimes they fly by, sometimes it feels like walking in mud. Just keep the forward progress, and you always come out the other side…with “new and improved!” insights and Ah-ha-s.
Thank you for being here. Do you know how you bless the world for simply (or sometimes not so simply) doing the inner work of Self? When you shed light within, the light grows without. YOU do this; you ARE doing this. The world is blessed because of your actions. Thank you. We are all on the Upward Spiral of Ascension, each taking their own steps to evolve individual and human consciousness to align with and express Divine Consciousness.
Divine Consciousness is Infinite and Eternal, never ending. And what a joy it is! I am so grateful for you to be here, adding your light on the path.
For Round Four, the Guiding Thoughts shift once again, this time back to the “I”. We began in Round One with “I”, claiming that self-identity. Then, through rounds two and three, the self-identity became expanded through “you” and “we” so that the self could begin to understand itself as the SELF. In returning to “I” in the fourth round, the (little) self merges with the (higher) Self, to achieve more consistency and congruency in everyday life, as the Self becomes more prominent in everyday activities.
Also for this round, Steve. returns as our Guest Journeyer. Lita and Mary’s beautiful reflections will continue in the comments section, so if you have been enjoying their writings, please follow up and read those.
And as a reminder: this is not “my” Journey, not Lita’s Journey, not Steve or Mary’s Journey. This is our Journey– all of us, together. Feel free to add your reflections with us in the comments section.
I am Love. I have infinite Love to give; therefore, I am able to give Love infinitely. Filled with Love, my energy is vibrant. All of Life responds to my inner State of Being with mutual harmony.
Wow. Day 31, the start of Round 4, the final round for this Journey of Peace. Which officially started October 4th, but seemed to start much sooner, as I completed a bio of myself, a statement of Intentions, and a statement of Commitment and Dedication. Has it been worth it? Absolutely. I have learned so much, not only about myself, but also about Peace, and how it manifests (or not) in our lives. There are so many ways to look at Peace, and the Guiding Thoughts have helped me to see many aspects of what peace is in our lives, what it looks like to me, how it feels, what it means to me.
Ekam Sat – One truth, many paths. Thank you to Sus for that (Sanskrit?) phrase. That is part of the beauty of the 40 Guiding Thoughts, each one evokes a different perspective, new questions arise, and my experience today is different from yesterday.
I am traveling on a path of peace, with you, me and we. Today it is not the same experience I had yesterday, or the day before, or on day 1. Every day I have opportunities to give love infinitely. I may fall short, but the intentions and results are worthwhile. I aspire to be in Infinite Love, and to share that love however I can.
