Guiding Thought

We are aware, we allow, and we accept What Is. We go within to our silent Self which Knows and follow our Inner Wisdom to Truth. We practice Divine Balance in thought, word, and action. We are! We are our Self! We are our Self of Love!

Reflection

There are so many layers and levels to “What Is”. There is the what is mentally–those thoughts rumbling around; there is the what is emotionally–whatever feelings/energies swirling in and through me; there is the what is physically–what I see, touch, hear, taste, smell; and there is the what is that goes on in those “other realms” of finer and more subtle energies, vibrations, and movements–like dog whistles or the eternal sound of Om permeating all that is!

Did you know:

  • While humans can hear sounds whose frequencies range between 20 Hz and 20,000 Hz, we’re most sensitive to frequencies between 2,000 Hz and 4,000 Hz—which happens to be the range of human speech.
  • the human eye can transfer data at the rate of approximately 8.75 megabits per second–but most of this is filtered out by the brain, which selects what is relevant or not relevant.

There is so much to the human experience that we simply do not register, but which “is” all the same.

Who knows what is possible, what our limits are, what we can learn or do or be, if we only unfilter some of our perceptions (slowly–we don’t want to be overwhelmed and go insane!).

My larger point, though, is that our conscious brains (as far as we have currently evolved), do not and cannot process all the information that we get. Fortunately, it does not need to. There is Inner Knowledge, which does it for us.

Recently, I found out that though I had been a finalist for a job, I was not offered the position. I went over the interview in my head, and “found” exactly the point where I had “said the wrong thing”. I knew it. I just knew that it was that moment in which I did myself in. Then, there was another professional interaction where I knew I was saying exactly the right thing. Later, when I juxtaposed these, I wondered, why do I say the right thing some times, and the wrong thing other times? And it hit me. First: everything is always right.  Second, things seem wrong, because my Inner Knowledge Knows it’s not what I need…so out of my mouth pops something that shifts my direction, and brings me something different than I expected (which I interpret as “saying the wrong thing”). When I come upon the exact right experience (which my Inner Knowledge will Know), then all of my words and my actions will align with that experience for everything to fall into place.

Why worry? My Inner Knowledge is taking care of me.

Guiding Thought

Love is unconditional. We choose to be unconditionally devoted to the Love which is unconditionally devoted to us. We embrace life in Love as our True nature. Connected with All in Love, we stand boldly in our heart-centers, unwavering in our dedication to Unity of Life in Love.

Sharing

I have several wise masters in my life, friends, people who I can converse with or email when I need to do some external processing.

Usually when I am processing externally, there’s a lot of jumbling of words; I never say quite what I want to say in a way that really says what I mean. For much of my life, this inhibited my verbal communication. Since I couldn’t say what I meant clearly, and it was more of a jumbled mess, the respondent would react to what they thought I was saying. They were unable to help me clarify so there could be real communication. Then it just became more of a jumbled mess because then if I tried to correct their perception, they just thought I was being defensive. Eventually I stopped trying to correct people’s perceptions, and sometimes I just didn’t initiate any communication what so ever, but that’s really hard in relationships. I’ve “gotten better” on all counts—my communication is less jumbled from the get-go, and I am more patient with people’s perceptions.

But I am SO thankful for the wise masters who I call friends in my life who I can talk with as a jumbled mess, and they get it. With them I don’t have to worry about their reactions or perceptions; I don’t have to worry that they will be offended or take something personally. I don’t have to worry about being clear! I can say things that I know are from a “lower” part of my mind or emotions and they know I am working through something, working it out. Sometime “stuff” needs to come out raw and unfiltered. They listen beyond the words, hear beyond the ears. In those moments for me, they embody unconditional love.

Have you ever been in a situation where you just know someone loves you unconditionally? It’s so relieving! All worry and uncertainty fades. A weight is lifted: the weight of trying, the weight of pleasing someone, the weight of trying to figure out what someone else wants.

1 Corinthians 13 keeps going through my head: “Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud.  It does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres.” In the moments of being a jumbled mess with my friends, this is how they seem to me…just love.

Sometimes when I think about the Guiding Thoughts, they are so big. What do I do with them? How do I do this? Today’s is like that. How do we understand and give unconditional love? How do we devote ourselves to something so big and abstract?

And then I think about my friends. My wonderful, beautiful friends who teach me so much in such simple ways…if I could give to others what they give to me… it’s that simple. Love is simple: Listen. Be. Allow others to be. Doing these simple things with others is devotion to love, devotion to being love and loving.

Guiding Thought

Accept your light and my lightness! Feel your Self expand! As you perceive change around you, remain anchored in your Being of Light. Allow yourself to sit peacefully in the still place of nothingness as life moves quickly around you.

Sharing

We all must learn to be anchored in light, to be anchored for light, and to be anchored for others in light.

We are doing this with and for each other right now. Each time we join together in thought-mind, heart-feeling in the acceptance of light, we help each other. More than this, we help those who are not yet, or only slightly, aware of the light. We lighten their burden; we light their path.

In one of the enlightenment paradoxes: we light another’s path by walking our own; we lighten others’ burdens by lifting our own. The more we expand, the more space we create for others to expand.

“Do not follow where the path may lead. Go instead where there is no path and leave a trail.”

This is as true for “energy leadership” as it is for verbal or physical leadership. Do you think that people don’t notice when you are sitting peacefully in your nothingness as the world moves quickly around you? They see something, perceive something. They may not know what it is exactly, but they know there is something different about you and how you approach the world. You are leading them through being, showing an option, demonstrating something different, an alternative. Perhaps it is something they have never seen or encountered before, and they don’t understand or perhaps they misperceive. Stay the course! Be true to Truth! Be your Light of Truth! Remain in your peaceful anchor!

Each of you are connected with each other through thoughts of light. We are together as a web of light; we help each other just by being here, doing the work. Each time you give light to anyone—and they accept it—and give it away—the web strengthens and grows.

We heal.

We are light.

We light and en-lighten.

We be.

Thank you for being.
