Guiding Thought

Knowing our Self as Peace fortifies our inner awareness of unity. Through gratitude for the Life we Are, we connect with harmony. Through harmony, we are restored and strengthened, and thus are able to carry our Inner Peace to all of life’s activity surrounding us.


It was ten days ago–day 12–that I went on a rant about feeling angry about the Guiding Thought. If I Knew how to Know myself as Peace, I wouldn’t be doing this Journey, would I? I wouldn’t need it. I said, effectively dismissing the first sentence as useless, because it is telling me to do something that I could not fathom at the time.

Today I have done a 180, totally fixated on that first sentence.

Here’s why: I can remove the “as Peace” and the sentence makes perfect sense. Knowing our Self fortifies our inner awareness of unity.

Ten days ago, “I” could not reach far enough to understand myself in the greater context of either Peace or Unity.

But today, “I” is “our”, and the unity of us through our Self seems to make perfect sense. We are fortified through understanding our unity. We are One.

I can be thankful for the Life “I” am; but when the “I” which is connected to “you” is thankful for the Life we both are, there’s a deeper understanding of the very meaning of “Life”.

“My” Life cannot be separated from “your” life. My voice, your voice, all voices, contribute to the harmony which is All of Life. We all make up the symphony. We live in a symphony with every other being. Life is this harmony, the perfect symphony of everyone.

How do we know? Look around. Life surrounds us, and we live in it. Together. Isn’t this reason enough to want to figure out, and learn, how to bring more Peace to Life in every aspect?

Journey of Beauty–Day 34


How does Beauty feel? What is the energy or vibration of Beauty? How do I bring Beauty to all my movements? How do I breathe in Beauty? What is the mental attitude of doing with Beauty? How to exist as Beauty–how to be Beauty?


The closer I get to the end of this Journey, the more I am thinking about the application of the concept of beauty to the concept of creation (the next Journey).

I want to create a beautiful life, a beautiful business, beautiful relationships…so it’s important to know how to identify whether or not I am going in that direction (the direction of Beauty).

Let me be clear: I have a beautiful life. I have beautiful relationships. What would be new would be the beautiful business (and the beautiful life lived in a beautiful business), and new beautiful relationships associated with that business.

This is about conscious creation. Co-creation. Beautiful creation of the highest possible order that I can magnetize now.

This will be new creation. New, beautiful creation.

I need to be able to recognize the people and situations that will bring about the highest, most loving, most effective results for a business. So this includes things like financial situations, business relationships, collaborations, etc. All those relationships can be beautiful…and kind, and loving, and cooperative, and harmonious, and mutually beneficial (for the good of All!). Beauty is key in this.

I am a firm believer in the practical application of spiritual practices, and that, when applied, spiritual practices and concepts bring about the most effective, efficient, smooth, easy, honorable, and beneficial results. I have experienced this over and over and over in my life.

Beauty is taking what I know to a new level. It’s giving me one more spiritual tool in my belt which will enhance all aspects of my life, and specifically relating to business and finances. It’s like I have a master’s degree in “going with the flow”-creation, but I am in kindergarten when it comes to Intentional, Conscious-creation. And maybe even pre-school, when it comes to Intentional-creation, beautifully. It’s all learning, all evolution, all a process. I am excited! (and a little nervous)

If you are working on business, or have a hobby that you want to turn into a business, or want an introduction to spiritual business practices, or anything else about what you might want to create, finish this Journey of Beauty with me, then join me for the next Journey, and we’ll do it together.
