My own Loving Presence is my personal connection with Divine Mind. Attuned to my own Loving Presence, I Know myself as Whole and Holy. As I feel my Inner Unity, I know: this is all I want; I have found all I seek.
This is what I see today:
Remember that yesterday I found that “seeking Wholeness” is another way of saying “Healing”. Being Attuned with my Own Loving Presence–through the seat of Inner Unity and the Seat of Thought is that Wholeness–Oneness with Infinite Divine Mind, where there is only Oneness-Wholeness-Unity.
Of myself I am nothing, yet in union with My Inner Divine Mind, through My Own Loving Presence, I am everything and have everything. As I infuse my consciousness with Knowledge of my Inner Divine Mind, my activity expresses this Union and I experience life. I breathe in this life. I smile with Joy and gratitude, and I affirm: I LIVE.
[This was ALL SET to go yesterday, but apparently IT needed to stew some more, because I completely forget to actually hit “publish”. You know how that works, when you’re all set for something and the universe says, “Uhhhh, nope, not yet”. So today, you get yesterday’s (day 37) and later you get today’s (day 38). It’s a sign! But of what? Of what? Yesterday’s entry was predictive…]
In spite of myself My Inner Divine Mind works with me and flows through me. Despite my railings, my impatience, my aggravation, it’s there. It waits. It sends me messages. It waits some more.
How do I know? Because people show me. When I am having trouble feeling my own union with My Inner Divine Mind, someone else’s Loving Presence speaks to me. Sometimes that Loving Presence says, “Snap out of it!” Sometimes it gives words of encouragement in a comment, sometimes it’s words that say just exactly something* that nudges me ever so gently to listen closer.
This is a way, I think, of recognizing the truth of the Guiding Thought. But I should change the words a bit: “Of myself I am nothing, but in union with Your Inner Divine Mind, through Your Own Loving Presence, I am shown I am everything and have everything.”
We are so important to each other, those of us traversing the upward spiral, making the trek, taking the journey (whichever path or journey that is), listening to the Inner Voice, following the Inner Guidance. We support each other, strengthen each other, whether we know each other or not. We are this life; we are in union through Life.
Right now, that’s enough for me to simply breathe, to smile with Joy and gratitude, and to affirm: I LIVE.
*”When I have “problems,” the problem is always that I am fighting reality. The problem is always that I think things should be different than they are. I have judged and found the situation lacking in some way. My ideas (my ego’s ideas) are that God’s version of things is not up to snuff. This is a lesson about realizing that the only “problem” is that I have judged and found the perfection of what is to be lacking. I have omitted love from the equation…Everything becomes a path to greater love, even stuff I think should be different than it is.” -Nancy Bowers
My Purpose is to awaken to the Truth within me and share it. The Truth within me–My Inner Divine Mind–flows constantly and purely. As I go deeper in my awareness, the current of this broadens, strengthens, and brightens. It fills me and pours forth. This is My Source, the Source of all my good, all my happiness, and all my abundance. I awaken to My Inner Divine Mind and invite it to express itself as every person and event that will increase my awareness of it.
Enough of this gentle “awaken” crap. I want to just slap the shit out of being asleep and wake the hell up.
I’m a bit riled up today. I feel a bit angry, a bit impatient. Can you tell?
How am I supposed to encourage you to be the Truth within you and let your Inner Divine Mind flow, when I can’t do it for myself? Is this hypocrisy? Is it process? Am I being as authentic as I can be? What more can I do? Is there more to do, or is there just continuing? Am I only frustrated because I think I want something else? Am I standing in my own way? Is my mind my problem? Are old patterns and expectations my problem? Am I only impatient because I (think I) want something I have defined that is not aligned with God’s plan for me?
There are a lot of teachings that talk about the flimsiness of the illusion, the narrowness of the gap, the thinness of the veil (between the Real reality of us and the relative reality of what we experience). Sometimes (like today), it’s as though I can see how flimsy, narrow, and thin it is, but I just can’t get through it, across it. I know how absurd my anger and impatience are; I know this is just part of the process; I know I am the expression of My Inner Divine Mind…but I feel like my experience is not full, not what it’s “supposed” to be, not what I want it to be. And I don’t know if I should push and try to get through the veil, over the gap, or if I should just wait…patiently.
Easier said than done: Either way, whether I should push or wait, easier said than done.
