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

Like a fresh clear mountain stream. It flows endlessly. Our Source is our Original Goodness, at the core of our being.
I find myself trying to simply re-word the guiding thoughts, so I thought it would be refreshing to share from a different perspective.
“I have spoken at times of a light in the soul, a light that is uncreated and uncreatable… to the extent that we can deny ourselves and turn away from created things, we shall find our unity and blessing in that little spark in the soul, which neither space nor time touches”.
Of our Source, that spark, that seed – Origen writes:
“Even though it is covered up, because it is God that has sowed this seed in us, pressed it in, begotten it, it cannot be extirpated or die out, it glows and sparkles, burning and giving light and always it moves upward toward God”.
Picture that pure fresh clear mountain stream, sparkling in the sunlight, reflecting like diamonds. That is the light of our souls, shining brightly for all to see.
What matters to you? What matters to you now? Is it different than what mattered to you yesterday? What are your priorities? How has your life changed in the past week or month?
Life is asking us to look at our lives. To consider or reconsider what is important. To assess, to re-negotiate, to re-organize our priorities.
This week begins Navratri, the nine nights of the Divine Mother. The first three days are devoted to Kali, the shakti-aspect of Shiva the Destroyer. Kali represents the undoing of all that is no longer working, all that is not aligned with Divine Order. Her message is “make your life right; if you don’t, I will”.
A friend of mine once said to me, “God and I are not on the same page”. So he fought with God, remaining obstinate that God needed to do his bidding. It’s this type of attitude that Kali’s force comes to destroy. The only “page” is the Divine page. Either you get on It, or you will experience an unsettling re-organization of your life according to God’s Will.
If you are aware of the Truth within you, and seek to express it, allowing it to grow, strengthen, and broaden, Kali comes to your aid, and adds her strength to the Truth you cultivate, for that is Her Truth as well.
If you are curious here’s my writing from The very first Journey of Purpose, six years ago Day 25.
Public Service Message regarding CoVid 19:
How to triage your symptoms. Please use the flow chart below to determine whether or not you should go to the hospital.
Remember: One of the big concerns right now is the potential for overwhelming hospitals and emergency personnel. There is no treatment for mild cases. Severe cases require hospitalization, with respirators. You can determine for yourself what your symptoms are, and reduce the potential overwhelm in hospitals and at doctors’ offices. Please share; in working together, we can help the people with most severe cases get the necessary treatment.
