We Embody the Light –Journey of Freedom 02.12.06

Guiding Thought

Through my physical body, I bring Divine Light and Love to the physical universe. I heal unresolved issues through loving thoughts, words, and emotions, and I become lighter and brighter. I bring light to all I have denied and heal my past-present-future NOW. Every day I am lighter and lighter!

Reflection / Contemplation

It’s no longer enough to meditate on Light, to visualize Light, to strive toward the Light.

No. It’s no longer enough.

We must be the Light.

We must bring the Light into our physical form, as living substance, and become that living substance of Light.

Asato ma Sat gamaya: Lead me from Untruth (darkness) to Truth (Light).

Yet…

The distance between untruth and Truth is exactly none: there is no distance. Truth is here. Truth is now. We are Truth. We are Light.

Say it with me. “I am Truth”. “I am Light”. In this moment you are. You see? There is no distance. You are here. You are Truth. You are Light.

Be it. Say it frequently. This is who you are. I am Truth. I am Light.

As long as you know this, you no longer need to be lead, nor to seek, nor to find. You have arrived; you have found.

It is when you forget that there is distance that must be crossed. It is when you forget, that you need to seek, that you need to be lead. It is when you forget that you need to remember.

Know the Truth of your Being: you are Truth. You are Light.

Realizing Freedom –Journey of Freedom 02.12.05

Guiding Thought

How can I live apart from God? God is indivisible. God is my Source and the Life within me. My Oneness with All through God was established at my birth, at the creation of my being. The realization of this Truth is the foundation of my freedom.

Reflection / Contemplation

The realization of this Truth is the foundation of my freedom.

I can think about the Guiding Thought.

I can feel about the Guiding Thought (see my reflection from Day 1!)

I can apply the Guiding Thought to my daily life and activities, and use it as a tool for growth.

or

I realize the Guiding Thought.

The first three happen every day. “I” direct my mind, emotions, and actions to accomplish (or at least strive to accomplish) the thinking-feeling-actions associated with the Guiding Thoughts. “My” mind is thinking. “My” emotions are feeling. “My” body is acting.

But realization is not “mine”. I don’t do it. IT happens. Without “me” doing/thinking/feeling anything, “I” suddenly Know something in a new way. I can’t predict it. I can’t say to Realization, “Come! NOW!” I don’t control it.

What “I” do think though, is “I” create the space where realization becomes possible.

And I do that through thinking, feeling, and applying the Guiding Thought. All the effort put into the contemplation of the Guiding Thoughts each day elevate my little mind, my little self to being receptive to the real (-ization) Truth of my Self, so that I can Know my Self. Knowing is way beyond feeling, thinking, or applying.

And what Truth is it to Know?

God is indivisible. God is my Source and the Life within me. My Oneness was established at my birth, at the creation of my being.

You Can Make It Through Anything –Journey of Freedom 02.12.04

Guiding Thought

Divine energy nourishes me, heals me, and brings God into my mind and body. Enlightenment moves me, awakens my Soul, and firmly grounds me in all I do. My energy creates my life experiences; my being is only love and light.

Reflection / Contemplation

I trust God.

I trust my Self.

I trust myself.

Even when life feels out of control…Even when I feel like the world is against me…Even when I have no idea what the future will bring…

I trust God.

I trust my Self.

I trust myself.

Imagine Jesus in the Garden of Gethsemane, then in front of Pilate, in front of Herod, in front of a crowd yelling, “crucify him, crucify him!”

He trusted God, His Heavenly Father. He never betrayed His trust in His Father or in His Self. He held his faith in the Divine, allowing that energy to “ground him” even amidst some really intensely harsh worldly circumstances.

“Seek ye first the Kingdom of Heaven (which is within you)”…especially in intensely harsh worldly circumstances, when the trial is most difficult.

“And all things will be added unto you”…get through the world’s harshness with your focus on God, and you will get through it and be renewed (resurrected).

Look to that nourishing Divine energy. Let it be you. Act and interact from that energy. Stay seeped in that energy.

You can make it through anything the world throws at you.

“Shift Responsibly”–Journey of Freedom 02.12.03

Guiding Thought

Everything is energy. Everything is energy connecting everything! A shift in energy in one place shifts energy other places. I lift my energy to the vibration of love and light, to God, to all that is Divine. I am responsible for my energy and I choose to free it by releasing the Divine Love within me.

Reflection / Contemplation

I love doing these Journeys. The more I do them, the more sense they make in my world, in my relationships, in my life.

Today, that making sense came in the first two sentences. This is what I have been feeling about everything in my life recently! am connected to everything. I can shift my energy and things change (“miraculously”).

Think about something you want to happen, or a quality you want more of (like serenity or patience). See it “out there”, then imagine the energetic path that connects you to it. What does that path look like? Knotted? Convoluted? Or straight and bold?

Ultimately, the current path of energy connection doesn’t matter. Just acknowledge you are connected.

But now you can play!

Shift your energy and then observe what happens when you imagine the thing-quality-situation again.

Does the energy path become more clear or less so?
Does it become bolder and brighter, or less so?
Does the “thing” move closer or further away?

Shift your energy. Observe.

You affect the things-qualities-situations in your life.

Use this shift-observation method to work on bringing more of what you want closer to you and ultimately into your experience.

It’s your energy. Be aware! Use it.

“Chambers of Dross Magma”–Journey of Freedom 02.12.02

Guiding Thought

I freely release patterns, habits, and thoughts that inhibit Freedom. My thoughts and feelings transform through remembrance of Freedom through Love. I was born with everything I need to be free in Love. I allow Love to lead me. I trust Love and surrender to its wisdom.

Reflection / Contemplation

These Journeys help people arrive at a “destination” through two means: 1) filling the mind/heart with spiritual nutrition in the form of the Guiding Thoughts 2) providing a stimulus for releasing the mental emotional dross* that can get in the way of the spiritual nutrition anchoring itself within the consciousness.

*Dross is the waste, the dregs, the unusable material that floats to the surface
when metals are heated. The dross can then be poured off, leaving only the pure metal. 

I take both of these very seriously. I reach to Nourishment and I release the things that get in the way of my reaching.

But I take it even a step further.

I excavate my inner depths for the waste, the dregs, the unusable material. I look for it. I dig it up. I find and pull out as much as I can.

Sometimes I pile so much up it crowds out my faith, overshadowing what I know that I know, pushing me to a limit that has me feeling as if I were to find…one…more…thingI would tip…and fall into a fear that would be difficult to climb out of.

I began excavating the dross yesterday. The Journeys seem to affect me like that; I’ve been doing them long enough that my consciousness knows what to do to progress me along my path, and it just jumps in and starts shoveling the waste for me.

I feel like in the past 24 hours I was pushed to that limit. I feel raw, uncertain, doubtful, distanced from the truth, faithless, unable to feel peace about my life and circumstances.

Physically this is felt like a dense mass in the area from my heart to my throat.

All the while, over the past 24 hours, I’ve been maintaining repetition of Truth thoughts and mantra to keep a steady stream of Love-Truth-Oneness flowing in, while the dross is rising to the surface like…magma.

It’s kind of this precarious balance. On the one hand, Truth-thoughts pour in. But on the other hand, it’s those very thoughts that loosen, displace, and “bring up” the fear thoughts to the surface to be released and transformed.

This is why you can’t buy into your own fear thoughts.

Maybe the fear you’re feeling is legitimate and has to do with whatever you’re experiencing.

But maybe it’s something washing up to be released.

What would you rather choose? Holding on to fear thoughts and approaching a situation or circumstance through that fear? Or, releasing it and creating more space for Love to fill you?

I was very thankful today that the Guiding Thought focuses on release and transformation.

My fears–that dense mass in that area from my heart to throat–did not have a defined form. I could not tell you what that fear is about or how it got there.

So in my contemplation it took the form of caged birds, caged animals, and fish on hooks.

The release was the cages opening, the fish being taken off the hooks and thrown back into the water.

Transformation was these foul, fish, and other animals remembering and loving their freedom, with a lot of gratitude!

I felt so assured knowing I already have everything I need to be free in love.

I was able to come away from the precipice and remember I want love to lead me, and I do trust It.

And, at least a part of my little mind was able to breathe in and surrender to Its wisdom.

I still have more releasing to do, but that’s what today is about!

Onward!

“How Does It Feel”–Journey of Freedom 02.12.01

Guiding Thought

Love is my natural state; In Love I remember who I truly am; I remember my holiness, my innocence, and my infinity. Love enlightens my mind and lifts my heart. I feel buoyant and expansive! I am now aware of my Self as Infinite Love, unbounded and free.

Reflection / Contemplation

There is a writing of Saint Germain, I recall, which goes something like, “What is meditation, after all, but feeling“?

In other words, relevant to the Guiding Thought:

  • What does Love as my natural state feel like?
  • What does it feel like to be in Love and remember who I truly am?
  • What do holiness, innocence, and infinity feel like?
  • What do an enlightened mind and a lifted heart feel like?
  • What is the feeling of being buoyant and expansive?
  • What is the feeling of awareness of my Self as Infinite Love, unbounded and free?

Every day when I do the Journey, I do my best to feel it.

So often I fall short.

I focus. I read with intention. I concentrate.

But, so rarely do I feel it. 

My logical brain steps in and says something about “agreeing with the premise”. (At least it agrees!)

My little-brain finds some distraction that leads me down an unintended stream-of-consciousness path before I realise I am there, but then pull myself back to focus.

I think about “wanting to get it” —- “I should be able to do this by now” —- “Why don’t I feel it?—-

And so on…

For 5 minutes of reading the Guiding Thought were these little, very subtle nudges of “you’re not there…you’re not there yet…you don’t feel it…you’re not getting it…”

All because I don’t feel it.

So I ask:
Does the striving to feel it just get in the way?
Or does the striving–even with the back talk and distractions–work through my objections so that when the time comes, I can just feel it naturally, without thought?

Commitment and Dedication …Journey of Freedom 02.12.00

Today is the day to declare your commitment to the Journey, or to yourself, or to your practice. Commitment sets up the consistency of action. Where in your life would you benefit from greater consistency of action? Consistency of action increases reliability, dependability, trust, and confidence. Where in your life would you benefit from greater reliability, dependability, trust, and confidence?

The purpose of the dedication is to offer the Journey to others, in some capacity. This action moves the energy out of your small, personal circle, in order to give benefit to a wider circle: those who you dedicate the Journey to.

I am going to let Walt Whitman kick off this Journey, from Song of the Open Road (my dedication and commitment follows):

FROM this hour I ordain myself loos’d of limits and imaginary lines,
Going where I list, my own master, total and absolute,
Listening to others, and considering well what they say,
Pausing, searching, receiving, contemplating,
Gently, but with undeniable will, divesting myself of the holds that would hold me.

I inhale great draughts of space,
The east and the west are mine, and the north and the south are mine.

I am larger, better than I thought,
I did not know I held so much goodness.

All seems beautiful to me;
I can repeat over to men and women, You have done such good to me, I would do the same to you,

I will recruit for myself and you as I go;
I will scatter myself among men and women as I go;
I will toss the new gladness and roughness among them;
Whoever denies me, it shall not trouble me;
Whoever accepts me, he or she shall be blessed, and shall bless me.

Commitment

I declare, with great enthusiasm and excitement, that on this Journey of Freedom, I am committed to increasing my awareness,  understanding, and True Knowledge of my Self–my Inner Divine Self, who I Truly AM. I am committed to being the Truth which sets “me” Free. It is my intention to maintain a constant awareness of True Freedom, which I experience through my consciousness– through my awareness. I commit to remembering as often as possible every day to be thankful for the Divine Grace of Source, which sustains me.

I am committed to contemplating the Guiding Thoughts for at least 5 minutes each day, and to writing my response.

I am also committed to continuing the work I began during Journey of Creation.

Further, I commit to being aware of aligning my ideas of Freedom with practical actions in work, relationships, emotional and mental health and expansion, in all aspects of my life.

I also commit to the practice of daily mantra in addition to this Journey.

Dedication

I dedicate this Journey to the Oneness and Unity of All Creation, and to True, Pure Consciousness. May each step I take serve to uplift all of humanity; may my thoughts, words, feelings, and actions be a vehicle through which God may enter the world to love and serve all life.
