Seek Your Self: Journey of Worth – 03.03.13

Guiding Thought

You know your Self when your share your Self. As you give your Self, you see your Source returned to you. All that is Whole, all that is Beauty, all that is Holy, reflects back to you in the Joy of Being, in the brilliance of Life, in the Unity of Self. Choose now to share only the Self of Beauty, Wholeness, and Joy, that you may Know your Self as Beauty, Wholeness, and Joy.

The Guiding Thoughts audio for this Journey may be found here.

Reflection

You see…

Your Self is you.

Yourself is not you.

Big Self. Little self.

You see?

The True Self is who YOU are, the Self of Divine Perfection.

Feel your Self: beyond concepts, beyond psychology, beyond emotions, beyond anything that you think you are.

Be still and Know. I Am.

All else is chatter, static, distortion.

Unclutter. Tune in. Harmonize.

Your Self is right here, now, waiting for you to be who It Knows you are.

When I Forget…: Journey of Worth – 03.03.12

Guiding Thought

Love yourself for the Truth within you. The Truth within you Knows you for who you are—Pure Love, Only Love, beyond all valuing of the world. In Love all are equal, for we are One. This is how Truth Knows you—Pure, One, and Free. This is your Truth; this is our Truth; this is the Self you love.

The Guiding Thoughts audio for this Journey may be found here.

Reflection

Truth Knows me.

Truth Knows the True me.

Even when I don’t Know my Self (or know myself), Truth does.

Truth Knows I am Perfect in Divine Love. This is my Truth. This is your Truth.

This is why I can love myself for the Truth within me.

Even when I don’t know, that does not negate the Truth of me, and there is always part of me (the Truth within me) that does Know me. When I forget, It remembers.

The World Sleeps (and Wakes): Journey of Worth – 03.03.11

Introduction to Round 2: If you are following along with the Guiding Thoughts I provide, this introduction is for you (if you are providing your own thoughts, skip down to continue the exercise). We have completed the first 10 days! In the next “round”–the next 10 days– the format will change slightly. In the last round, you were the subject of the meditation: All of the meditations were from the first-person singular, “I”. In this round, we will shift to the second-person singular. Instead of saying, for example, “I have forgotten my Self”, you will now say, “you have forgotten your Self”.

Corresponding to this language shift, your thoughts will also shift from “I” to “you”. Instead of claiming the Truth of You for you, by yourself, someone will claim it for you and give it to you, or you will claim it for someone, and give it to them. There are four options to accomplish this. Use your imagination and creative thinking to “see” the “you” in one of these ways (use what feels right to you, or come up with your own.):

Option 1. Picture yourself in a classroom, or at the feet of a guru, or talking with a trusted friend, or being instructed by a wise teacher, or other such situation in which someone you trust is giving you wise information. In this scenario, that person is speaking the Guiding Thought to you. You are the you of the statement; that person is telling you a truth about yourself, reminding you of something you already know; helping you remember your Self.

Option 2. You are the instructor at the head of a classroom, the guru, the trusted friend, or the wise teacher who is the one speaking to a student, friend, person who needs a reminder. Imagine a friend, a relative, a colleague as that person (or people) you are speaking to. This person seeks your counsel; he needs your wisdom; she needs you to remind her of who she is, what she has forgotten about herself. You are giving him the gift by remembering for him.

Option 2, variations: (a) Instead of giving the meditation phrases to a friend, imagine instead giving it to someone with whom you have conflict or stress. (b) Instead of giving to one person, see a medley of people pass through your screen; “talk” with as many people as you can imagine. (c) Feel your thoughts going out to all people everywhere—people you know, people you don’t know, your town, a village on the other side of the world, anyone, everyone.

Option 3: On the screen of your mind, where you are seeing these images, split the screen, so there are two “sides”. On the first side of your screen imagine Option 1. Take each phrase of the meditation as the listener, the student. Feel it deeply, then shift to the second side of the screen and use Option 2. With each phrase, receive a thought, then immediately give it to someone.

Sharing, sharing, sharing….Let’s do this!

Guiding Thought

You have forgotten your Self. You have forgotten who you are. You have forgotten that you are established in Love and by Love, which is infinite and eternal; therefore, your worth is infinite and eternal.

Seek to remember your Self; choose to remember your Self.

Choose to remember who you are, and your infinite worth in Love.

Choose to be aware, to understand, and to Know yourself (your Self) as the Love that you are.  Choose to share who you are with the world, giving your infinite worth, measured in infinite Love.

The Guiding Thoughts audio for this Journey may be found here.

Reflection

What will remain when the world wakes up?

What dreams will be forgotten? What inspirations will take their place?

I have forgotten my Self because I am asleep, along with the rest of the world.

Collectively, we sleep. No longer is it a deep sleep; now it is that state of hovering between sleeping and waking, dreaming and opening the eyes. The state of choice: do I roll over and go back to sleep, or do I open my eyes and begin my day?

It’s a new dawn; it’s a new day. Each one of us is choosing: do I face it, or do I pull the covers up and return to unconsciousness?

What will remain?
What will remain is that which is True, what is established in and by Love, that which is Infinite and Eternal.

If you choose to wake–and not to keep your eyes closed–you will wake into your Self.

Mobius Stripped Bare: Journey of Worth – 03.03.10

Guiding Thought

If I am to be my Self in the world, I must be for others as well as myself. There is no other. I am willing to be receptive to the Infinite Love of All. I am willing to understand how I must rise above the struggles and pains of the world. I am willing to rise again and again with each call for help, each outstretched hand. I am willing to be the one to choose to change. I offer my pain, suffering, guilt, and blame up for transformation, into the light of Love, that I may see and give only the light of Love always.

Reflection

“If you go out far enough, you turn back in; if you go in far enough you turn back out” a friend said recently.

When I began these Journeys seven years ago, they were only about me.  I created the first Journey to help me figure out my own purpose. Each Journey thereafter was a way for me to dig deeply into the barriers and obstructions that hindered my upward (ascension/enlightenment) progress. I didn’t care about you or your process, even though I knew the deeper I go, the more I pave the way for you to go deeper. Yes, these Journeys can and will benefit you; my own upward growth lifts humanity just that much more. But I didn’t do it for you. I did it for me.

Then I shifted and suddenly it felt right to do the Journeys on behalf of everyone on the planet, all 7.5 billion of us. The inner-direction became the outer-directed. I didn’t plan it; I didn’t intend it. I came across the idea that in doing it for myself I was able to do it for everyone, so I said, “sure, why not; same effort, larger results. I’ll do that”. I spent two years in that frame of mind while doing the Journeys.

I feel like I have taken another turn inward. Again, it’s not intentional or planned; it’s just happening. Just now, I find it very difficult to feel like I can do much for anyone beyond myself, much less for 7.5 billion people.

I feel like something new has been planted within me. It’s still small and not well rooted. I need to take care of it, nurture it, give it love and encouragement so that it will grow and become stronger. My focus and my attention must be given to this part of me; I must maintain my vigilance within in order to nourish this.

This does not mean I am not here for you. There is no other; we are One. Every direction leads back into itself, like a mobius strip turning, turning and changing with each turn.

With each turn, we become stronger together lifting each other, breaking each others’ fall. And together we rise.

Living a Full Life: Journey of Worth – 03.03.09

Guiding Thought

I extend the Love that I am, for that is all I truly am. As I learn to be aware, to understand, and to Know my own will as Love, and make choices according to that will, my life experiences become worthy of me. Expressing my Self that is wholly Love and United with All is the only choice that is worthwhile. It is the only thing that brings me satisfaction, the only choice that allows me to experience my Self—the Love that I am. My-your-our- freedom depends on my right choices, depends on my choosing what is worthy and what is not; it depends on me, depends on you, depends on us.

Reflection

Extending Love is learning Love. Sharing is learning. “For it is in the giving that we receive…” I can only Know Love, and Know myself as love, when I am being Love. Love does not exist in a vacuum. Being Love implies being Love in relation to something. Since Love is One, the only thing that Love can be in relation to is Itself.

I am Love. Love is all there is. When I give/be Love, I am experiencing Love as It is: everywhere, everything. My experience becomes Love, the fullness, wholeness Perfection of Love.

Since I am Love, anything less than Love feels unsatisfying, feels incomplete, feels unworthy of me

In order to live a satisfying, full, complete life, I must live as who I Am: Love. And that means choosing to extend Love, always.

Paying Attention: Journey of Worth – 03.03.08

Guiding Thought

I am worth the effort it requires to move my mind into Love. I am worth the time of waiting, in patience, for Knowing to arrive. Every moment, every second that I open to simply being willing for Love to enter is a moment offered to Eternity; a moment offered to healing, a moment offered to Unity.

Love simply settles slowly, quietly, gently, beyond sense-perception. So I must wait in patience and take the effort to move my mind to join the quiet stillness of Love. Here I rest. Here is Peace. Here is all I want and need.

Reflection

I forget about patience. I forget about stillness. I feel somehow this is connected with the first day, “I have forgotten myself…”… but I could not tell you how they are connected at the moment.

do think I am worth the time of waiting. I just don’t always have the patience for it. That’s the point, though, right. To eternity, time matters not. Eternity has forever to wait for me to remember myself.

am willing for Love to enter, and to offer that moment to healing and Unity.

What is this impatience today? I feel impatient. Or, perhaps, I am recognizing this within me. Rooting. Digging up.

And, yes. It feels like an effort to move my mind to join the quiet stillness…

But how or why do I feel like moving toward Love is an effort? Love should be simple and easy. Natural. Effortless.

It’s like I can feel the place I am going (Love, stillness, Peace), but I don’t have the patience to stay there.

I am paying attention to this now, a bit more, as an obstacle to my Peace that I need to release.

Life of Unity: Journey of Worth – 03.03.07

Guiding Thought

I claim who I am, the essence of my Self, established in and by Love. My Self shines with the strength, beauty, and power of its essence, Love. As I open to my Self, accept my Self, and Love my Self, the Life of Unity infuses all my activity and transforms my consciousness. Life as my Self renews my Joy and restores my trust in Life itself.

Reflection

I am my Self. My Self and I are One. My Self is my Self, but not myself.

My Self’s essence is Love. Love established my Self as Itself.

My Self is Love. I am Love.

Opening to my Self is Opening to Love. Accepting my Self is accepting Love. Loving my Self is Love Loving Itself.

We are ALL One. (from yesterday’s Guiding Thought)

I am Love, you are Love. We are One. This is the Life of Unity. All One, equal in Love.

What kind of life is this?  Each and all of us knowing our Selves as Love, Knowing each other as Love, Knowing our Unity?

Joyful. Trusting. Yeah, let’s claim this, and get to that place. Let’s live in that Life, each, ALL of us, together.
