Guiding Thought

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.

Reflection

Several things are coming together with today’s Guiding Thought.

  1. My “Why” for doing this Journey: Living a life worthy of the Holy Spirit
  2. Remembering and Forgetting
  3. Shiftingtransforming
  4. Moola Mantra
  5. Simplicity

I’ll try to connect the dots simply for you.

  1. The only way to live a life worthy of the Holy Spirit is to live as my Self.
  2. I have forgotten my Self. All I need to do is rememberRight–it’s not always that easy. Who am “I” after all? What is this “Self” that I have forgotten, that I am remembering?
  3. 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 responsibilityThis is a wise use of my free-will (at least considering what I want to accomplish).
  4. 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.
  5. 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.)

Simple.

 

Questions (Purpose- 1.2.14)

Guiding Thought

Your Inner Divine Mind is always expressing itself in all ways through your own Loving Presence. This is its True Nature, thus this is your True Nature. Turn to your Inner Divine Mind as the Source of your happiness, your purpose, and your fulfillment. Allow it to flow through your own Loving Presence and appear as all your activity, as every visible form and experience you desire.

Sharing

There are always things I’m trying to figure out that are prompted by the Guiding Thought, but are beneath the surface and not exactly things that I experience, so I don’t really write about them.

For example, I’ve been thinking a lot lately about stepping into my Self. As it relates to the Guiding Thought, it goes something like this: If my true nature is to have Divine Mind express through me, through my Loving Presence…why isn’t it just happening all the timeWhy don’t I feel itWhy doesn’t it seem to workWhy aren’t I just there, in it?

First of all, I am sure you can hear the impatience and exasperation in my “voice” there, right? It’s not quite whiney, but it’s close.

And that is the first answer to the questions: Stop being an impatient whiney-ass, and maybe you’ll feel and experience exactly what you want to.

On a deeper (and more serious) level, I really want to understand what it takes to simply step into my Higher Self. To be the light all. the. time.

Lately, I’ve been “seeing” that it could be simple and easy. Literally just stepping into it, like you step over a threshold from the inside to the outside. I can feel it. It’s a simple shift, and you’re there. Everything can change in the twinkling of an eye.

As I think through this, feeling the possibility of it, of course I think, “then why don’t you do it?” And my answers are weak, but they are still answers: I’m not ready. What would it mean if I did thatWho would I be if I did that

When I hear that there are “answers”, I understand why I haven’t just done it. The questions are in the way. I have to eliminate the questions, which will eliminate the answers. When it’s time, there will only be the action, the activity–no thought, no consideration, no question. Just being.

In the meantime, it’s important to just be in the becoming, and to do my best to recognize Divine Activity in my life and affairs as much as I can. Because It’s everywhere.
