Guiding Thought

The Divine Presence of Love is the most natural energy in the world and beyond. Through the wisdom of Love, I understand Love as True wealth as an expression of my Divine nature, to be cultivated in my consciousness, expressed, and shared. My love is infinite. My wealth is infinite. I realize this as my reality and circulate wealth with joy and gratitude.



I get it. It all comes together today. This Guiding Thought really is a capstone. I’ve never “seen it” before, but I see it now, thanks to the past several days. Welcome to day 40! You made it. How are you “seeing things” today, or lately?

I’m going to save “what I see” today for my summary in a few days. There is too much hearkening back to the past 40 days, which would take too long now if I tried to explain it.

But, I do have two thoughts to share.

First, last night, as I’ve been doing recently, I had the words, “ALL in All is Love is ALL in All is Love is ALL…” going through my head. They made no sense to me.

It was as though each word was completely isolated and without context. As I repeated the phrase silently in my head, I had no clue what I had seen or heard in these words recently. Everything seemed lost—all of the depth, dimension, connections, feeling, etc., gone.

I told myself, “This happens sometimes, you know that. It happens that the brain, emotions, or ego regresses, rebelling against your learning”. I knew that was true, so I was not too, terribly upset (but I was pretty frustrated about it).

I also knew that I had seen/understood the meaning and connection of the phrase very deeply, and with strong feeling. I cannot lose it. It is part of me now. I’m not saying I don’t have to continue to work at cultivating it (“True wealth as an expression of my Divine nature, to be cultivated in my consciousness…”), but I have definitely moved into a new (natural, effortless) understanding (and therefore expression) of Love and wealth.

My encouragement to you from this is: Stay encouraged! Sometimes it feels like two steps forward, one step back. Sometimes it feels like you’ve gotten nowhere, like you’ve forgotten or lost something you had just a day or two before. Trust that when you get something, that you have gotten it; that it is part of you now. Trust what you feel. Trust that there is a new depth now from which you are growing and expanding. You’ll never be the same again…and that’s a good thing.

Second: When you get something (that is: have a new, expanded understanding), acknowledge it, and even pat yourself on the back. Because, here’s why: each little growth anchors you for the next one. When you feel yourself learning something in a new way, in a deeper way, in a more-expansive way, then that is what is becoming your new platform, the new solid place which is yours unquestionably, without thinking about it, without effort. As each growth-experience becomes integrated into your consciousness, into your Self-identity, the next growth starts from there. If you don’t acknowledge it, accept it, and anchor it, it is easy for it to float away—the brain will step in and fill your head with thoughts that counter it, make it seem unreal, make you question yourself…you must trust yourself and your growth enough to claim your Self and your growth.  Accept what you are becoming as what you are.

I’ll be posting my summary-reflection in the next week or so. Then Journey of Fulfillment begins September 18!!! I am so excited! (I’m such a dork.)

Also—something new is coming! During these short breaks between Journeys, there will be guest articles! In the Spirit of the With Pearls Foundation (501c3), which supports and encourages journeys of self-discovery, there will be new voices, new experiences, and new perspectives from others who are consciously taking steps on the path! If you’re interested in writing a guest-article, see this page.
