My own Loving Presence is my personal connection with Divine Mind. Attuned to my own Loving Presence, I Know myself as Whole and Holy. As I feel my Inner Unity, I know: this is all I want; I have found all I seek.
This is what I see today:
Remember that yesterday I found that “seeking Wholeness” is another way of saying “Healing”. Being Attuned with my Own Loving Presence–through the seat of Inner Unity and the Seat of Thought is that Wholeness–Oneness with Infinite Divine Mind, where there is only Oneness-Wholeness-Unity.
We claim who we are, the essence of our Self, established in and by Love. Our Self shines with the strength, beauty, and power of its essence, Love. As we open to our Self, accept our Self, and Love our Self, the Life of Unity infuses all activity and transforms our consciousness. Life as our Self renews our Joy and restores our trust in Life itself.
Several things are coming together with today’s Guiding Thought.
My “Why” for doing this Journey: Living a life worthy of the Holy Spirit
The only way to live a life worthy of the Holy Spirit is to live as my Self.
I have forgotten my Self. All I need to do is remember. Right–it’s not always that easy. Who am “I” after all? What is this “Self” that I have forgotten, that I am remembering?
I can choose to remember. I can shift my thoughts away from those which deny my remembering, and choose thoughts that strengthen my remembering. This is my responsibility. This is a wise use of my free-will (at least considering what I want to accomplish).
The Moola Mantra has increased my understanding about the relationship between my Self and the Holy Spirit. In the Moola Mantra the Self, as I call it, is referred to as Paramatma–which means (loosely) the Self of the Soul. It is not only your highest best Self of the body, it is the highest creation of you, your lived Divine Self. I would dare say it is also known as Christ Presence. When I remember my Self/Paramatma/Christ Presence, I become a vehicle for the Holy Spirit, Divine Energy.
Isn’t living in the reality of my Self the essence of simplicity?
With this in mind, the Guiding Thought comes together in a new way:
We claim who we are, the essence of our Self, established in and by Love. (#3: This is my use of choice and free will).
Our Self shines with the strength, beauty, and power of its essence, Love. (#4: how could my Self/Paramatma/Christ Presence do anything but shine with strength, beauty, and power of Love?)
As we open to our Self, accept our Self, and Love our Self, the Life of Unity infuses all activity and transforms our consciousness. (#2: Just remember. A part of you already does. Open. Accept. Be.)
Life as our Self renews our Joy and restores our trust in Life itself. (#1: This is the life worthy of the Holy Spirit, a life of Joy and Trust in Our Self, our expression of the Divine.)
Our own Loving Presence is our Self. We turn our attention inward and become aware of our own Loving Presence. With focused awareness, our own Loving Presence fills us, grows brighter, and grows warmer. We claim our Self with these words:
I AM My Own Loving Presence. My loving Presence is the Self of myself. I love my Self!
We want to give our Self everything it desires–and our Self wants the same for us. What do we desire, but total Peace, Freedom, Love, and Harmony? These are the infinite and eternal qualities of the Self! We are now aware of the inner activity of our own Loving Presence and we invite it to express itself through us and externalize in our lives as circumstances, people, forms, and events that fulfill our desires.
At first, this Guiding Thought can be confusing. It uses the plural “our” to describe a singular “Self”, and it then uses the singular “I AM” to claim that plural Self. What’s going on here?
Here is my understanding:
“Loving Presence” is singular, plural, and collective.
There is One Loving Presence. That Loving Presence can be called a Unified Presence, Oneness, One, Christ Presence, I AM, etc. That One Loving Presence is the same Loving Presence within each of us (“we’re all connected”).
That One Loving Presence comes through each of us, individually, taking on the “imprint” of our personalities. When it is expressed through us, in the world, as us, it can seem like there are many “loving presences” because we each express it uniquely.
Collectively, we express the One Loving Presence as individuals in communities, societies, etc. Communities and societies show us a barometer of how much of the One Loving Presence “most” people are expressing. What are the eternal qualities of Loving Presence? …“total Peace, Freedom, Love, and Harmony”…how much of this do you see in your community, in society?
This is why:
When I invoke or call upon my own (singular, individual) Loving Presence, I am also able to invoke or call upon yours. All I have to do is intend it.
When I raise my consciousness of my own Loving Presence, I raise the collective consciousness of the One Loving Presence.
The more my personal expression of my own Loving Presence brings forth the eternal qualities of the One Loving Presence, the more others are able to bring forth those eternal qualities through their own Loving Presence.
One person is the doorway for the collective; the collective is the doorway for the full expression of the One Loving Presence.
This is really what we are doing in this round: we are individually invoking the One Loving Presence for All (we), allowing (being the doorway) for a higher awareness/consciousness of the One Loving Presence in the collective consciousness.
