Guiding Thought

I focus my heart-love in the service of others.

As I serve others through my deepest heart-love, my own love expands and becomes amplified.

There is always more love to share, to give, to experience!

Such joy and gratitude fill me, when I open to my heart’s love!

Sharing

I guess “crazy-eyes” is what happens when I trace a bunch of infinity signs and add spirals around them. I wasn’t trying to do another crazy eyes; I just like infinity signs and spirals. The purple in the middle is infinity signs, symbolizing my heart-love focused in the service of others, infinitely. The blue infinity signs represent my own love expanding and becoming amplified. My love expands out from the action of being in service to others. The greenish, gold, and pink represents the energy that is generated from the expansion of my love. Then, when it expands far enough, it explodes in flares, spewing love out to everything!

What’s interesting, of course is that if the middle represents infinite love and service, infinitely, and the explosion represents the love going out infinitely, then love is coming out from infinity and going back to infinity.

I love infinity.

I should say that I love concepts that can make my head feel like it might explode if I think about them too long (like infinity).

The other day, I thought to myself, “What are God’s thoughts…what are the thoughts of God?” and I just sat there and thought about God’s thoughts. This is what I came up with, before I felt too much like my head was going to explode:

I think God probably does not think in words…they are too limiting. The image I had in my head was not static, however, it moved; it was dynamic, there was swirling and shifting and waves and billows. It only lasted a couple of seconds, but it was a great thought-experiment; it felt expansive, like I really was somehow “getting” an answer to my question.

Sometimes I ask myself what Jesus thought, or what Jesus prayed. This feels a little more accessible than asking what God’s thoughts are. We know Jesus prayed. And we know Jesus taught us the Lord’s prayer. But is the Lord’s prayer what Jesus himself used to pray? Or is it the prayer he gave to the masses, because so few have eyes to see or ears to hear? I am inclined to think he prayed differently than the way he taught us. I mean, if he actually prayed in the way he taught us, and his prayers were answered, and we are using the same prayers as him, then why can so few of us multiply loaves and fishes, heal the sick, walk on water, or raise the dead?  So what did Jesus pray? Or, what are we missing? And, even more…how do we figure it out? After all, He said, “All of this and more than this shall you also do…”

I ask the questions so I can figure it out. I believe Jesus; I really think he was telling the truth about what we are capable of. If we’re not doing it, there’s just something we’re not getting. But we can.

Journey of the Heart – Day 27

We are on round 3! For this round, the pronouns for the Guiding Thoughts change again; we will use the pronoun “we” or “us”, instead of “I” or “you”. When you listen to the Guiding Thoughts (or read them), unite yourself with me, and I will unite myself with you. We are the “we”!

Before you begin each day, take a moment and think about this from Day 08’s Guiding Thought: Love-as-light streams from my heart to your heart! We are connected by Love; we are One in Love. You may even choose to listen to this quickly—it is a thought that will turn your mind to the right attitude for the day’s endeavor.

Spend about 15-20 minutes with the guiding thought, and then let your heart speak through words, pictures, colors, shapes, whatever feels right. I’ve supplied a link below to an audio of me doing the guiding thought–use it if you like to create, while listening to it play on a loop (that’s what I do). Scroll to the bottom for my sharing…

Day 27 Guiding Thought

We focus our heart-love in the service of each other.

As we serve each other through our deepest heart-love, our own love expands and becomes amplified.

There is always more love to share, to give, to experience!

Joy and gratitude fill us, when we open to our heart’s love!

You can download this and play it in a loop while you allow your heart to speak to you :).   I suggest Windows Media Player (I have not tested other players).

My emotions grew more joyful as I drew this picture today. It was pretty neat, actually…and I think you can see it in the figures. The outer-most circle of figures has a lot of dance and joy expressed. I started drawing figures with poses of “service”—at least, in my imagination. But then, the figures’ poses took on a life of their own, and they just started doing stuff. And the stuff seemed to be big, expansive movements of joy and gratitude.

The final piece I did was the partial spiral of hearts and infinity signs. I did not intend for it to be a spiral, but then it started working out that way, and it made sense for the hearts to get bigger and bigger.

I know that this process of listening and drawing has an impact on my psyche, on my consciousness. Today was special. My consciousness definitely was very perceptibly lifted in doing this. I think that is the whole point of this guiding thought—to realize that when we lift others (“in the service of others”), we ourselves are lifted. Then we realize how wonderful it is to be lifted and there is joy and gratitude…then more service, because who doesn’t want to be lifted some more? And on and on it goes. But it begins with our actions and attitude of service to start the upward spiral.
