Clear Conscience. Journey of Gratitude. 04.08.03

Guiding Thought

I fill my mind with the Light of the Truth of Love. What more is there? In the Light of the Truth, I am Free. What more is there? My consciousness expands in the Truth of Love: forever One, forever Joyful, forever in Peace.

Reflection

“In the Light of the Truth, I am Free”…forever Joyful, forever in Peace.

This Guiding Thought relates Love with Truth with Freedom with Joy with Peace.

It reminds me of the Sanskrit Om Satchitananda, which translates as Essence of Ultimate Reality: Truth-Pure Consciousness-Bliss. The essence of Ultimate Reality is the Truth of Love. Just Love. Love is all there is. Truly. and so, really: what more is there? there is only Love.

I’ve been coming back to this a lot lately, using the Jewel song, “Hands”. In that song, there is a lyric that says, “only kindness matters”. I’ve been using that lyric, thinking, “only Love matters”.

There have been so many times in the past two weeks that I have felt at a loss, not knowing what to do, feeling lost as to what the “right” thing to do would be, and I think, “Only Love matters. If there is nothing more I can do, I can Love.” And then I consciously call forth Love using this phrase, “I pour forth the full, pure, Divine Love of my being to >name of person, or situation< to Bless, Heal, Protect, and Prosper (or other such qualities)”.

Love anchors me; it gives me a focus; it gives me a purpose; it gives me a way to focus and direct my thoughts when my actions or emotions feel uncertain.

I cannot say that I have felt bliss or joy or peace as I have moved through my awkwardness using Love. But I can say that I have no regrets, and that “my conscience is clear”, as I have made the best choice I can in every moment to live a life in which only Love matters. And in this, I am Free.

The Self-referential ALL. Journey of Gratitude 04.08.02

Guiding Thought

I lift my mind and heart to the Truth of Being, to all that Is, to All I Am. I accept my Self in Truth and offer my Self to All in gratitude for Its Being.

Reflection

There’s a phrase from A Course in Miracles that says, “Only Truth is True”. This phrase is what I am thinking when I think about lifting my mind and heart to the Truth of Being. There is only One Truth of Being that is True, and that is THE Truth of Being. It sounds so repetitive and tautological (self-referential), doesn’t it? Yet, I find comfort in the idea that only Truth is True, and that the Truth to which I lift my mind and heart is True. And I AM that Truth; the Truth is ALL I AM.

Truth does not need to be defended. Truth IS. This, too, is a comforting thought. If I am defending something, anything, then what I am defending is not the Truth. Likewise, I do not need to defend who I AM; if I defend who I AM, I am defending something that is not the Truth, for the Truth of who I AM is True.

I Love the Truth of who I AM. I refuse to listen to those who would define me as other than the Truth of who I AM. It is this Self of Truth that I Accept and Love so deeply. It is All I AM. How can I not Love the Truth of My Self? How can I give other than the Truth of My Self? My Self is All there is, in Truth…

…Which is why when I give My Self to ALL in Truth, there can be only gratitude, for I am giving my Self (the microcosm of All) to My Self (the ALL, the Macrocosm of Being).
