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.

Steve (Meet Steve here.)
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.

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.
