A sign that we are maturing on the spiritual path is when we begin to release our acquisitive nature – the part of us that is always seeking to get something – and instead commit to being of service.

Rather than going out into the world, believing that the world somehow holds our happiness, we instead have a very real and powerful sense that our happiness comes from within. It emanates from the core of our very Self.

And it is with this awareness that we are overcome with a palpable lightness of being, where every instant becomes a celebration, and everything we do we do with a glad heart.

Rather than asking, “How can I get what I think I need in order to be happy or survive?”, we instead approach every moment, every situation, every interaction with the question: “How may I be of service? How may I bring value? How may I be a blessing?”

We have realized that we are not here to try and get more stuff. Instead, we know that we already have it all, and it is our joyous task to simply demonstrate this truth in our experience.

We are here to freely share all of our gifts, skills, and talents; to freely shine our light, sing our song, and dance our dance.

And when we do this – which is seeking first the Kingdom of God, the Realm of the ever-expanding Good – we soon find that everything we thought we needed to chase after comes bursting into our experience.

Our lives are filled with riches and blessings beyond our wildest imagination simply because we are the blessing. And Life will always reflect back to us exactly what we are.

We are living in profound times. There’s no denying that there’s some changes happening all over the planet. Yet these changes aren’t anything to be afraid of, for they are nothing less than the birthing of a new earth. The old structures of scarcity, limitation, and not-enoughness are beginning to fall apart (they never really worked in the first place), and more and more of us are beginning to awaken to a greater sense of our Oneness with All Life, our Oneness with All That Is.

Now, what I’m getting at here is… we are seeking to create a community here! A community of like-minded individuals committed to the path of transformation.

AFFIRMATIONS

In every moment of every day I walk in an awareness of my True Nature, which is one of greatness, limitless possibility, and endless joyous expansion.

I am aware that the Great God of the Universe is my Source, and that I live, move, and have my being in a Field of Infinite and Overflowing Good.

Everywhere I go I freely shine the light of my awareness; I am a dispenser of Divine Blessings.

I am deeply thankful for all that I have, for all that I am, and for all that I’m in the process of becoming.

Each and every day, in every way, I give thanks for the boundless good that is flowing into my life. My life is very good, indeed.

And so I let it be. And so it is. Amen.

In Parts One and Two of this series respectively, we have looked deeply into where do our dreams come from, and we have also examined where do we come from, and how do we fit into the grander scheme of things. We had reminded ourselves that everything in the Universe is energy, and we had brought back to our attention that all of it originates within a vibrant Field of energy which science has called the Unified Field. And so we have allowed ourselves to recall that it is within this Field that we live, move, and have our being. And furthermore, that we are, in fact, intimately connected to this Field. That there is no place where this Field ends and we begin.

All of this is what we might consider a scientific way of describing God. Because as we mature spiritually, we begin to realize that God is not some external deity that we must beseech to give us what we think we need to be happy or to survive. But much rather do we begin to realize that God is the center of our very being.

And as such, it becomes apparent that all has already been given to us. We already have the keys of the kingdom. So rather than us trying to get something from the seemingly external, our task becomes to realize that all that we could ever want, hope for, or desire, we already have; and it is up to us to create the conditions within our own consciousness that will allow our physical experience to become the living demonstration of this truth.

Friends, this is what living the Awakened Life is!

Living the Awakened Life is moving beyond the superstition of materialism, and instead cultivating a very real and powerful sense of our true nature as Spiritual Beings on an eternal journey of joyous unfolding.

Oh yes, Life is very good, indeed!

All that we could ever want, hope for, or desire, we already have; and it is up to us to create the conditions within our own consciousness that will allow our physical experience to become the living demonstration of this truth.

Now, with this awareness, are you ready to examine a bit further the practicality of matters? I thought you might be. So then let’s take a look at…

5 Keys For Moving Towards Your Dreams

Key #1

Ask for Guidance

You may find this first key especially useful if you’re reading this and you’re not quite sure what your vision is. Perhaps it’s been a long time since you’ve allowed yourself to even consider having a dream. Well, something within you is saying, “It’s time to get back on with it. It’s time to get back to the dream.”

Simply find a quiet place where you will be able to sit uninterrupted. Then, become still. Allow yourself to get centered so you may get in touch with the core of your being, your I Am Presence. Enter into your Soul Space.

Once you have accessed that level of your awareness – which is simply a matter of turning your attention away from the seemingly external towards the interiority of your being – you may then ask any question you seek to know the answer to. Perhaps you may want to ask, “What’s the purpose of my current incarnation? What am I to do with this lifetime? What is seeking to emerge in me, through me, as my very life? What are the dreams that are in my heart?”

And then, be on the lookout for the answer. The answer may come in the form of a sudden insight, an intuitive sense. Or perhaps it will appear in the form of a billboard, or you’ll hear it in the chance utterance of a friend or a so-called stranger. Do not try to rush the answer. Be patient. Know that it’s coming. And begin to feel that, whatever the answer is going to be, it’s going to be good!

If you are already on track with your dreams, you may want to use this process to inquire about the next step of your unfolding, or anything else that’s going on in your life about which you’re seeking a higher perspective.

 

Key #2

Pay Attention To The Answer

After you have asked for guidance, you will want to raise your level of alertness so as to not miss the signs that the Universe will be bringing into your experience. More often than not, the answers may be subtle, and they may require our alert receptivity in order for us to notice them.

I love how Carl Jung described synchronicity as, ”…the coming together of inner and outer events in a way that cannot be explained by cause and effect and that is meaningful to the observer.”

So let us seek to pay attention whenever we have those experiences of inner and outer events coming together in a way that is meaningful to us. When this happens, let us be aware that someone’s trying to tell us something. And let’s be sure we listen.

 

Key #3

Act On Your Hunches

The answers may come in the form of hunches and impulses that are emanating from our intuition. Regardless of how they come, the answers will not always make sense to our rational mind. The ego, in its well-meaning yet misguided way, may advise us to not pay attention to mere hunches and to instead focus our time on what it has labeled as “more pressing matters.”

We cannot serve two masters. We cannot follow our Divine Destiny and expect to get there by the means and the clever scheming of our ego. Ego invariably comes from a limited perspective, whereas our Inner Voice is the part of us that is plugged into Spirit. And Spirit has got the whole picture! Spirit is saying, “Follow me! Trust me! I’ll get you there! Come on!”

 

Key #4

Commit To Excellence No Matter Where You Are

The “no matter where you are” part is really what we’re focused on here. Sometimes we may have big dreams and we may be committed to giving them all we’ve got, yet we may be working at a day job to temporarily supply our funding. We may be tempted to think that our day job is less important and therefore does not require that we demonstrate the excellence that is actually inherent within our very being.

Do not be fooled! Decide that you’re going to commit to excellence no matter where you are! It doesn’t matter what the job is, make a commitment to give it your all. Don’t hesitate to show up early and to stay late. Always be willing to do more than what’s expected, and do it gladly, joyfully, with a sincere heart. It is the energy that results from the demonstration of that level of excellence that will catapult us into the next stage of our unfolding.

 

Key #5

Cultivate An Unshakable Spiritual Trust

Let’s remember to simply trust our Source. We live, move, and have our being in God. So when, in the mere outer, it appears as if something’s not working out, if it feels like we’ve hit a dead end, or if we think we’re going in circles and everything is falling apart, that’s simply a sign that it’s time to release and let go.

Not let go of the dream. Not let go of the vision. But to let go of how we think it “should” be happening.

You may recall, I said in Part One that “how” is not our business. So let’s learn to let go and let God. Remember that, no matter what the vision, in the mind of God it’s already done. So if the path towards the dream is turning out a little different from what we expected, let us seek to realize that it’s all perfect.

All of us are exactly where we need to be, right now at this very moment, in order for us to learn, to grow, to evolve, and to become who we will need to be in order to fulfill our destiny.

  • Embodiment

The following affirmative treatment, repeated with conviction on a regular basis, will anchor these new heart and mind sets in your awareness. You may want to change the wording in any way that feels natural to you. The exact words do not matter. What matters is feeling the powerful energy behind them!

I give thanks for the insights that are taking root in my awareness. I give thanks for the guidance I have received, and I am open and receptive to all the signs and all the clues that my beloved Source is seeking to bring into my experience. I give thanks that I am cultivating an unshakable spiritual trust. I KNOW that I live, move, and have my being in a field of Infinite Possibilities, and it is with this awareness that any old thoughts of fear, doubt, and worry; any thoughts of lack, limitation and scarcity, are being dissolved, for they can no longer live in the higher vibration of my being. I commit to excellence in all areas of my life. I commit to being the very best me I can be. I commit to activating my full potential. For this and so much more I give eternal thanks, and I allow it to be. Thankfully and joyously. And so it is. Amen

Much Love and Blessings to you!

The Divine Life Principle is forever expressing and revealing Itself all throughout the Cosmos. Its nature is to always expand and demonstrate more of Its beauty.

We may see this Principle unfolding when we take the time to pause and look at a beautiful rose. We may see It when we watch a beautiful sunset.

We may see It when we look into the eyes of a beloved. Or into the eyes of any fellow traveler on this grand adventure called Life.

It is seeking to express and reveal Itself in new and wondrous ways through every single one of us. Yet we have been given the gift of free will, which means that our willingness is required.

We must be willing to go with the stream of Life, to allow Its rivers to gently guide us to our destiny. Or we may get caught in some resistance pattern made up of conditioned thought forms revolving around fear, scarcity, lack, and limitation.

The spiritual journey is always one of moving away from fear towards a fuller embodiment of Love.

As such it serves us well to sit every day to consciously release any and all patterns of limitation, and to then surrender to that which is seeking to emerge in, through, and as us.

So right now, at this very moment, pause for a few seconds, and allow yourself to declare your sacred and joyous “Yes!”

You are saying to the Universe that you are willing to activate your fullest potential. You are willing to become more fully yourself. You are willing to let your life blossom into the wondrous work of art that it is meant to be.

Allow yourself to make this part of your daily practice.

You will be glad you did.

Two of the most powerful words that we can ever think, say, or embody, are: “Thank you.”

Whenever we are thankful, whenever we feel appreciation for something or for someone, we are actually creating a powerful vibratory field that will allow more things for which we may be thankful to flow into our experience.

Gratitude is an affirmative mental approach to Life. We shall make it a habit to say, “Thank you,” and we shall make it a habit to say it often. We have been given the keys of the kingdom, and we shall enter its gates with praise and thanksgiving.

So let us become joyous appreciators, always on the lookout for good. Always anticipating more to appreciate. Always ready to sing a song of praise, for we know that Life is good, and all is God.

And the highest form of gratitude is simply being thankful, not for anything in particular, but much rather for the gift of Life Itself.

When we can be thankful simply for the fact that we exist, when we can appreciate nothing other than that we are here, that the Divine Life Principle is powerfully flowing through every fiber of our Being, that’s when we will have entered the highest form of ecstatic appreciation.

So, my friends, be of good cheer. For you have been given the grandest gift of them all. The gift of Life Forevermore. And Life Forevermore is always seeking to express and reveal Its grandeur through you.

And how sweet the taste of that is!

One of the things we need to cultivate in order for us to live our lives at our highest potential is a regular spiritual practice. Spiritual practice simply means setting aside some time each day to consciously focus our awareness towards that which is Real and Eternal. Spiritual practice can include, but is not limited to, meditation, affirmative prayer, contemplation, spiritual study, as well as making ourselves available to and tuning into the highest vision for our lives.

Simply put, spiritual practice is what plugs us back into our Source and recharges our spiritual batteries! It’s what allows us to then bring this higher awareness – the awareness resulting from our fully charged and fully functional spiritual batteries – into our day to day lives. It’s what keeps us from walking around as sleepwalkers, merely coming from a place of reacting to the world of sensory phenomenon, to actually walking in an awareness of Reality with a capital “R.”

And as this higher state of awareness begins to be from where we live our lives – as we consciously begin to live, move, and have our being in it – we begin to realize that there is a perfect spiritual idea, held within the Mind of God, for everyone and everything in existence. And furthermore, we develop the ability to be able to see this perfect spiritual idea – which is the embodiment of highest potentiality – regardless of what our physical senses are showing us at any given moment.

This is what True Vision is all about. What I’m referring to as “blind sight” is simply looking at life merely through the five senses. It’s how many people still live their lives. Yet True Vision is a step up on the evolutionary ladder. It is where we begin to realize that there is much more to life than what we can see, hear, smell, taste, and touch. True Vision is, in fact, what Jesus the Christ alluded to when he declared, “Let those who have eyes to see, see! Let those who have ears to hear, hear!”

  • Demonstrating True Vision

So what does True Vision look like? Let’s say you’re perceiving an individual that may not be demonstrating their highest potential because, maybe they’re doing something you think is inappropriate, or maybe they’re acting in a way you’ve perceived to be rude or offensive – whatever your mind is telling you about the situation.

If you can learn to perceive this individual with True Vision, you will be able to look beyond what is seemingly happening on the surface level. You will no longer merely see what your mind may have labeled as a rude or obnoxious person, and instead you will have a very real and powerful sense that, though it might be clouded up, though it may be hard to make out, beneath the surface, beneath the debris field of past experience, there is nothing less than the Holy Presence of the Divine emanating from that being.

Perhaps they have temporarily forgotten who they are and are displaying this in their actions, but with your higher awareness you will be able to remember for them. By doing this you are imparting a great gift to yourself and this other individual who, in Reality, is not separate from you at all.

The spiritual textbook, A Course in Miracles, states that, “Every attack is a call for help.” So by perceiving this other being as who they truly are, despite of what the surface mind is telling you about them, you are in fact answering this call for help, which is nothing less than the call for love.

So perhaps the best way of summing this up is to say that instead of feeling the need to judge, you will find that you are able to feel a sense of compassion.

Compassion is simply the understanding of the lack of understanding in another.

Compassion does not mean that we necessarily condone their actions, but it does mean that we are no longer drawn into some robot-like lower consciousness reactive pattern. Instead of unconscious reaction, we find we are able to hold the space from which we are able to consciously respond.

  • Embodiment

Today I am willing to demonstrate True Vision in my life. I am able and willing to look beyond what my physical senses may be telling me, and I am open to receiving all the guidance, all the insight, and all the inspiration necessary to step up to the next level of my spiritual evolution. I release any and all thoughts of judgment, anger, or resentment, any thoughts of lack, limitation, and scarcity, and I allow my heart to be filled with peace, the very peace that passeth all understanding. I know that God, Ineffable Divine Source, Universal Beloved, only sees Beauty and Perfection, and it is with this understanding that I now heal any and all false perceptions within my own awareness. I may have been blind, but now I see. The Spirit in me is helping me to see. I can see. I can see clearly. And I’m liking what I’m seeing! For this and so much more I give thanks and I simply allow it to be. And so it is. Amen.

Life exists so that the Ineffable Divine Presence may know Itself more fully.

All of Life is sacred. All of Life is precious. All of Life radiates that sweet Presence of Divinity.

Sometimes our perception of Life may become clouded. When our perception becomes clouded, we have gotten lost in the drama.

When we get lost in the drama, we no longer see what is before us. Instead we perceive but a mere mental image of what we think is there.

We may then judge this mental image as good or bad, we may label it as this or that. But the truth is undeniable. We have lost our Selves. The ego has tricked us into buying into its belief in separation.

So our practice becomes to see beyond the labels and judgments the ego has conjured up, and instead work within our own awareness so we may begin to catch glimpses of this animating Presence that is radiating from All That Is.

We will not find this Presence through the mind, and the ego may even question whether or not It’s there. So we must learn to go beyond the mind, and we must learn to not take the ego’s ramblings so seriously.

Find someone in your life today, and allow yourself to just look at them.

Just look them in the eye for a moment, and appreciate them. Appreciate who they are. Appreciate that they’re in your life.

As you do, give yourself permission to acknowledge that there is a Holy Presence emanating from that Being.

That Presence is nothing less than the Presence of God.

And that Presence is everywhere.

It is in you and around you.

It is… All There Is.

All of Life is precious. All of Life is sacred beyond measure.

We live, move, and have our very Being in a Field of Plenitude.

Lack, scarcity, and limitation do not exist in God’s World. For how could there be any concept of limitation in the Mind of the Infinite?

Yet for us to live in this awareness of plenitude, it is crucial that we not rely on seemingly external circumstances and conditions to supply our needs.

Our good does not come to us from other people.

Our good does not come to us from the world.

Much rather is the level of good that we experience a direct result of our ability of being able to receive what Divine Mind is seeking to bring forth through us.

Knowing this brings great freedom, for we no longer feel that we must manipulate things in the seemingly external world. Instead, we work within our own interiority. Rather than focusing on externals, we focus on raising our level of awareness.

It is always done unto us as we believe. So let us cultivate the kind of awareness, a level of faith, that will move mountains. And let us give thanks that whatever we’ve asked for is already done in the Mind of God.

As we do this, rather than perceiving ourselves as separate from our good, we begin to inhabit a mental atmosphere of gratitude.

We become what we may call Jubilant Souls, always finding something to appreciate while joyously anticipating what is flowing into our lives.

There is something timeless and formless that exists within all of us.

This deeper Realm is beyond the five senses. It is birthless, deathless, and eternal. And It is in a process of forever unfolding and revealing Itself throughout the Cosmos.

If we are to seek true fulfillment, we must learn to regularly withdraw our attention from the world of the senses, the world of effects, and instead turn within.

As we turn within, we access this sweet and delicious Presence that is forever shining forth within us. It is from this Presence that we may draw whatever is required at any given moment.

We are indeed fueled and funded by the all-giving Spirit of Life. This Divine Spirit has remade Itself in Its own image and likeness, and It has named Itself each and every one of us.

As our awareness is flooded with this realization, all the stuff that we thought mattered, all the drama of the world of effects, begins to lose its appeal.

We have become but a field of radiant peace.

Our hearts have become an open doorway that lets Love flow to and fro.

We have truly become the Light of the World.

So with this joyous promise awaiting nothing other than our conscious realization of it, let us regularly turn within so that we may access that part of us that was never born and which will never die.

Let us walk in an awareness of our True Nature, and let us freely shine our light upon everything and everyone that enters our field of awareness.

Wherever you are right now, take a moment to look around. Carefully take in your surroundings. Just allow your awareness to glide over whatever is before you. And regardless of whether you’re in your home, in an office space, or somewhere out in nature, just allow yourself to become aware that, even though it seems as if what surrounds you is separate from you in time and space, this is, in fact, nothing more than a perceptual artifact.

The truth is nothing is separate from you. You are connected to all that is. Wisdom traditions have told us this for centuries, and science is now starting to catch up with it.

As you look around it also appears as if the objects that surround you are solid. Yet this too is not the case. Solidity, as any quantum physicist would tell us, is an illusion. Everything that appears solid is actually vibrating at different speeds and frequencies, and all of it is part of a field of vibrant energy which science has called the unified field. It is out of this field that everything originates, and so we might surmise that this field possesses a form of intelligence. And it is within this unified field of intelligence that all of us live, move, and have our being. It is merely our physical faculty of sight that is translating the vibrations within this field into what appears to us as objects that seem separate in space and time. One might say it is all a big cosmic magic trick!

  • Moving Into Your Soul Space

So in actuality, you are separate from nothing, and even though you cannot see it with your eyes, you are intimately connected to this field of intelligence that animates and permeates everything in existence. This intelligence is what is beating your heart right now. It is the same intelligence that causes grass to grow, that turns acorns into oak trees, and that transforms a little cocoon into a beautiful butterfly.

Though you cannot see, smell, hear, taste, or touch it, you do have the ability to tune into this intelligence, which is your Source, by simply making it a habit to occasionally withdraw your attention from the five senses, and instead turn inward.

It is through turning within that you may access what we’ve referred to as your Soul Space – the sacred space where your I Am Presence resides. This space is beyond thought, beyond belief systems, and beyond mental concepts and labels. And it is in this sacred space where you will begin to develop a very real sense that not only is this field of intelligence more real than the world your physical senses perceive, you will begin to realize and feel, in a very powerful way, that you are precious beyond measure to this intelligence. In fact, you are loved and adored by this intelligence. We might say that it is madly in love with you. Not because of anything you’ve done or accomplished, but simply because you exist!

Just take a moment, if you will, to take a deep breath.

Just allow yourself to feel into what was said.

Really take a moment to feel it.

You are adored beyond measure!

You are precious beyond measure!

Feel that in this moment!

Now, there are several names we may use when we talk about this intelligence. We may refer to it as Spirit, Infinite Intelligence, Divinity, Source, our Highest Self; we may speak of God, Allah, Tao, Brahman, or any of the other names that have been given to that which is ultimately unnamable.

The truth is, it doesn’t matter what we call it. What’s more important is being aware of it, and having a very real sense of it, not as a concept, not as an idea that we can either believe in or not, but as an experience.

So, with that being said, allow yourself to also realize that this intelligence, this Presence which is your Source, is everywhere present in Its fullness. It is omnipresent, which means everywhere present fully. So right where you are at this moment, all of the Presence, all of the Power, all of the Love, and all of the Beauty is. Not some of it. Not just a little part of God. All of it. All of God is where you are.

You are in the fullness of God, and the fullness of God is in you.

There is no separation, no place where you end and God begins. And that makes you an individualized center of awareness within Divine Mind. You are made in the spiritual image and likeness of Divinity, which means you are essentially one hundred percent pure God. You possess the same creative faculties and Divine Qualities that are found in the mind of the Ineffable, and you are here so that you may express and reveal these Qualities in full according to your unique pattern of perfection. In other words, there is something extraordinary within you waiting to be uncovered. You are truly magnificent. And you possess gifts, talents, and capacities that are far beyond what you may have thought was possible for you.

And so with this awareness it becomes easy to see why it is that, in every moment, in every instant, you have the ability to tune into your Source for guidance, insight, creativity, new ideas, and whatever else you may require.

You are magnificent. There are gifts, talents, and capacities within you that are far beyond what you may have thought was possible for you.

  • As You Believe Will It Be Done Unto You

Divine Intelligence can only meet us at the level of our expectancy. You may recall, I had mentioned the scriptural reference “As you believe will it be done unto you” in Part One of this series last week. It is worth repeating, because it is one of the most powerful statements of truth ever made.

You see, Divine Intelligence is always ready to guide us, to give us whatever we’ve asked for. Yet it is up to us to cultivate such knowingness, such a level of faith and expectancy, so that our answered prayers will demonstrate with ease and grace in our experience. “Ask and it will be given. Seek and you shall find. Knock and the door will be opened.”

So with this awareness as our foundation, we may then begin to realize or, in fact, remember that we are here for a reason. We didn’t just accidentally drop by, we’re not here because we fell from a cloud, we are here because we have something to share, something to give. We are here because we set out to make a difference on this planet at this particular time in human history. We are here to further our own Soul’s evolution as well as positively impact everyone we come into contact with.

Now, these things we’ve set out to do when we were born into this realm of time and space is what we’ve come to refer to as our dreams, or the larger vision for our life – which brings us back to the primary focus of this series.

Now, this is called DARE to Have a Vision. And that is because we should never be afraid of a dream that may seem a little big. In fact, if your dream’s making you just a tad bit uncomfortable, rejoice! Celebrate! That just means it’s perfect! Our dreams should be stretching us, our vision is meant to challenge us. And that is because our vision is nothing less than a catalyst towards us becoming the next highest embodiment of the greatest version of ourselves.

So with that being said, let us stretch together, let us reach for greatness together, let us no longer hold back and instead live the truly extraordinary lives we came here to live. Let us make a difference on this planet!

In the next installment we will be looking a bit more at the practicality of things. And, in fact, you will find some simple and easy to implement tools you can begin to put to use immediately. These tools will help you tune into your vision as well as gain clarity, and they will help you stay the course and ensure you are receptive to that which is seeking to emerge in your life.

So keep an eye out for Part Three of Dare to Have a Vision. And before allowing the affirmative declarations at the end of this article to take root in your awareness, take a moment to contemplate this beautiful quote:

“You see things as they are; and you say, ‘Why?’ But I dream things that never were; and I say, ‘Why not?’”

George Bernard Shaw

  • Embodiment:

I give thanks that I am now open and receptive to the highest vision for my life. I release any and all thoughts of fear, doubt, and worry, and I accept that there is a great vision, a unique pattern of perfection for my life held within the mind of God. It is to this vision that I turn my attention; it is to this dream that I devote the entirety of my being. I am able. I am willing. I am available. I am receptive.
