Guiding Thought

Of yourself you are nothing, yet in union with Your Inner Divine Mind, through Your Own Loving Presence, you are everything and have everything. As you infuse your consciousness with Knowledge of your Inner Divine Mind, your activity expresses this Union and you experience life. Breathe in this life. Smile with Joy and Gratitude, and affirm: “I LIVE.”



Life is so amazing. I haven’t been on a “life is amazing” kick for a while. But really, think about it. LIFE IS AMAZING. Here we are. Living. Breathing. Playing. Working. Feeling. Being. Amazing!

I was thinking about what I wrote yesterday about learning and hard work, and today fits right into this: One of the things about this learning is that it is abstract. Divine Mind is abstract. Loving Presence is abstract. Even consciousness is abstract. Abstractions are really difficult to pinpoint, to say, “this is it” (thus–abstract!); it’s not like a jump shot, a kick, a run-pattern/catch, that we can practice and see tangible results or improvements.

We don’t have a coach telling us, “You used too much wrist and not enough arm”, “Follow-through”, or “Your timing was just half a second off”. No. We do not see immediately so we can’t do an assessment/critique of our learning in the moment.

Or…maybe we do get immediate feedback, we just don’t notice it. Maybe living is the immediate feedback and if we paid attention to our own inner coach (intuition?), we would be able to make little adjustments, and do it better…do life better.

Do we need to do life better? Aren’t we perfect as we are? Yes. Yes! We are! And all you have to do is accept that and believe it and live it: YOU ARE PERFECT right now.

The thing is…I apparently don’t yet believe it. Because I still think I can do it better. Until I wake up one morning, resting peacefully, in the full and complete knowledge of my own perfection… I’m going to keep learning about my own perfection, keep learning to love myself more, keep learning to do life better.

And I’m ok with that, with myself for it. I love life, and love it as a process.
