Chop Wood, Wash Windows.: Journey of Purpose – 03.02.15

Guiding Thought

Your Purpose is to awaken to the Truth within you and share it. The Truth within you–your Inner Divine Mind–flows constantly and purely. As you go deeper in your awareness, the current of this flow broadens, strengthens, and brightens. It fills you and pours forth. This is your Source, the Source of all your good, all your happiness, and all your abundance. Awaken to your Inner Divine Mind and invite It to express Itself as every person and event that will increase your awareness of It.

Today, my purpose was to wash windows. I kept thinking of our Journey of Purpose, and how washing the dirt off the windows is so perfect, a reflection, or perhaps an expression of the spiritual journey we are on. Today, my purpose is to awaken to the Truth within me.

It is said, before enlightenment, chop wood. After enlightenment, chop wood. Perhaps substitute doing the laundry for chopping wood. At any rate, that Truth within me is like a river flowing, never ending. It is always there but it is never the same. Each moment I have the opportunity to listen to my source, to hear the river flowing, to know my Purpose at that moment. All I have to do is wake up. Wake up when I’m doing the laundry, or washing windows, or making dinner, or when I am standing in line for coffee, or groceries.  Each person I encounter is there for a purpose. May I awaken to the Truth of that purpose.

When I visualize that river within me, it is always flowing slightly downhill, from left to right. I have no idea what that means, or if it’s even relevant.  I cannot imagine it going from right to left. It winds about in a natural lightly forested type setting, flowing over rocks here and there. I like this river. I like the Source within me.

Thank you.

This is how yesterday’s artwork “finished”. I like it! Listening to the Guiding Thought while creating art is so relaxing…

Day 14: Commitment Reflection…still working on it. Is this “Divine Order”?

 

Sunny Days, Lost Entities, and Sacred Geometry: Journey of Purpose – 03.02.14

Guiding Thought

Be fully conscious of your own Loving Presence which seeks expression through you. Your own Loving Presence Knows your heart and Knows your happiness. It Knows how to fulfill your heart and bring you joy by placing you in right situations, with right people, at right times where you may fully express your purpose. Submit your mind and heart, all your thoughts, words, actions to your own Loving Presence to be lifted to Its vision and plan for your life.

It is a sunny day here in the Pacific Northwest. Not only that, we have daffodils in full bloom. I was thinking about these guiding thoughts as I was taking the garbage and recycling down to the street for pickup tomorrow. Such mundane things make up much of our activities. How could I not notice the yellow daffodils, expressing themselves in all their glory?

So might I express my Inner Divine Mind, my Loving Presence. May my expressions be as bright as flowers blooming, and my activities bring smiles and happiness to all those around me.

Joy joy

I love geometry. I have no idea why. Yesterday, I was talking with a friend who does energy healing. She told me that she once removed an entity from a woman. This entity was not malicious; it had just taken up residence in the woman’s body, finding it comforting. However, the residency caused the woman a lot of physical pain. When the entity was removed, the pain was gone, but the entity no longer had a home and was lost– it remained in my friend’s apartment. She did not at first know it was not malicious, and was quite fearful of having this being in her apartment; she called a friend who was a shaman who was able to lovingly send the entity on its way. The method the shaman used? Sacred Geometry. (The shaman was the one told my friend that the entity was not malicious, and that, in fact, it was as scared of her as she was of it, since it had been abruptly removed from its home, and was lost).

I don’t “use” sacred geometry for anything. I just like it, and enjoy drawing it, and coloring it. But who knows…maybe someday I will learn something about how I may use it to increase love and compassion in the world.

Day 14: Commitment Reflection

Today, I am going to be at peace with myself for my “failure” to keep my commitment. However, I press on. This Journey is becoming as much about commitment as it is about purpose. Interesting, that. I wonder how commitment and purpose relate in my Higher Journey’s path.
