Gratitude and Blessing: Journey of Purpose – 03.02.27

Guiding Thought

Of ourselves we are nothing, yet in union with Inner Divine Mind, through our own Loving Presence, we are everything and have everything. As we infuse our consciousness with Knowledge of our Inner Divine Mind, our activity expresses this Union and we experience life. We breathe in this life. We smile with Joy and Gratitude, and we affirm:  WE LIVE.

As we shelter-in-place, I am struck with gratitude for all our blessings, like a warm house, food in the pantry, fresh fruits and veggies in the fridge, money in our pocket, and someone to share with.  We have everything.

We have so much to be thankful for. It is hard not to worry about those that have lost their jobs, can’t pay the rent, or have no medical coverage.

So let us be thankful, express our gratitude, and affirm with Joy that WE LIVE. And let us pray for the wellbeing of all those who are suffering.

Every Movement

I rarely let the word “NO”

Escape from my mouth

Because it is so plain to my soul

That God has shouted “Yes! Yes! Yes!”

To every luminous movement in Existence

This is life. Everything that we experience is life. All life is God, and of God, and in God. Every Breath is God. Every glance is God. Every moment of every thing is God.

When we experience Life as it is: God, of God, and in God, what can possibly bother us? The “trick” is to be in union with God, being everything, having everything.

And as we know ourselves in union with God, we can help and share with those who do not know, those in suffering and distress. They, too, are in God, the Life of God. Help them know it. Peace.

Identify as Divine Mind…Relax: Journey of Purpose – 03.02.26

Guiding Thought

Today we relax with confidence in the activity of our Inner Divine Mind. We allow it to express Its true nature of all-sufficiency and all-supply in our life and affairs. Today, our only responsibility is to protect our own Loving Presence from thoughts that block Its flow. If we feel uncertain, we remembers our Source; if we feel weak, we remember our Inner Flow; if we feel doubt, we assure ourselves of our Inner Knowing, and we are free.

I keep coming back to the action of one-pointed attention. When we think about the past or what might happen in the future, worry sets in. It blocks our flow of our Loving Presence. One pointed attention focused on our Source, our Inner Divinity, will bring us back into Peace and Harmony. This brings us freedom.

Our thoughts are like wild horses, who want to gallivant off in all different directions. By gently reining them in, we can bring our attention back to the present, to our Source, to the Peace within us all. This is a practice that we do over and over again, as our thoughts want to stray. This practice makes us stronger, and gives us the ability to remain calm and centered in difficult times.  With our attention pointed inwards, we access the unshakable strength of our Source, or Eternal being, and realize all happiness and abundance in our lives.

May all sentient beings enjoy happiness

and the root of happiness.

May we be free from suffering

and the root of suffering.

May we not be separated from the great

happiness devoid of suffering.

May we dwell in the great equanimity free

from passion, aggression, and prejudice.

~Pema Chodron – Comfortable with Uncertainty

There does not seem to be a lot of relaxing these days. While listening to the Guiding Thought, it occurred to me that the anxiety, panic, and distress in the world shows us just how far we have collectively allowed our thoughts to stray from Divine Presence. Not only do we (humanity) not use our thoughts to connect with the Divine, we also actively allow our thoughts to take us away from the Divine.

What we are experiencing collectively is the Divine. This is evolution. This is transformation into our higher-divine selves.

We do not need to embrace it…it’s coming whether we do or not. But the experience can be more joyful, more relaxed if we identify with the activity of Divine Mind acting in us, through us, as us, all of us, together.
