When we have the opportunity to observe little children, there comes a delight as we find a sweet sense of innocence, a joyous awareness that all things are possible. Don’t children, as they’re engaged in expressing that playful nature, radiate a powerful enthusiasm that seems to proclaim that all that is needed is imagination and ingenuity in order to create rich new worlds, filled with exciting new possibilities? When we first arrive here in this three-dimensional world of time and space, we are fully in tune with the larger purpose for our lives. On a subjective level we know exactly why we’ve come here, and we know that we are here to do something magnificent. We sense that within us is a Light that is so bright that no seeming darkness can combat it, and that this Light is seeking to express in and through us in a unique way. Today, enter into a child-like awareness that all things are possible with God-consciousness. Determine that you are here to become the embodiment of those sacred dreams in your heart. Live fully, withhold nothing, and watch as the Universe matches up that radiant vibration and nothing is withheld from you.
Written and encoded within your very DNA is greatness, perfection, wholeness, well-being and harmony. Within you is Infinite Genius waiting to be recognized, embodied, and expressed. Your potential is infinite. I do not need to know anything about your history, where you came from, or what your past experience has been in order to be certain of this. After all, your past only exists as a memory, just as the future only exists in the imagination. All that matters is right here and right now. So what will you do now? What will you choose now? Will you now choose to express and embody who and what you really are?
Ultimately what it comes down to is a choice between Love and the absence of Love, which is fear. So as you go about your day, ask yourself from time to time, “Right here and right now, am I choosing Love? Or am I choosing fear?” Be aware that this is where it takes some spiritual ingenuity, because fear comes in many disguises. Some of these disguises may seek to convince you that they are not rooted in fear at all. But do not fall for it. Some of fear’s more clever disguises include anger, frustration, doubt, worry, a sense of lack, a feeling of inferiority, or a sense of superiority. All of these are the product of a false sense of separation. And a sense of separation always leads to fear.
But regardless of what form it may take, be aware that fear is never real—separation is never real. Separation is the great error on which all other errors are based. Separation is the absence of proper seeing, just as fear is the absence of Love, and darkness is the absence of light. When you turn on the light, darkness disappears. And when you turn to the everlasting wellspring of Love that is within you seeking to be expressed, you will find that all fear, and all sense of separation, disappears. Love and fear cannot exist in the same space. One cancels out the other. This is why it has been written that perfect Love casts out fear. So today, resist getting caught in the narrow confines of fear-based miss-perceptions. See clearly. See with your Inner Eye. Realize that you are divinely supported, and that as you continuously turn to what is Real, what is Real will become the activity of your awareness.
Affirmation: “Today I see with my Inner Eye and I behold the eternal Presence of Love that is all around me, in me, and through me. Free from all error, free from reacting to error, I allow the Divine Light within to shine with such luminosity that all erroneous perceptions are dissolved in my experience—and only that which is is Real remains.”
Whenever we hold a high intentionality, when we have a big vision for our lives, we may be tempted to put off our happiness until such a time when this vision has manifested in our experiential reality. In other words, we are projecting our happiness into some future moment where all our dreams have come to pass. Yet let us be aware that, regardless of circumstances and conditions, we have the ability to tune into that state of being called happiness right here and right now. Jesus the Christ has been quoted as saying, “The Kingdom of God is at hand now,” as well as, “The Kingdom of God is within you.” These statements carry a profound meaning. They both imply that the Kingdom of God is not some far off place that we may go to someday, but much rather that it is a state of consciousness. Heaven is embodying that state of consciousness that recognizes our true nature as whole, perfect, and complete beings—the very spiritual image and likeness of the Infinite. And the beautiful thing here is that this state of consciousness is readily available right now! So today, tune into this boundless realm of ever-expanding good. Allow it to overtake you. Allow it to saturate every fiber of your being. And then, go forth into the world and multiply this state of consciousness. Let your light shine so bright that when people see you, they see the Divine Presence that has sent you.
Most of us will often find ourselves getting caught in bringing the past into the present. In other words, we interpret what we see and experience here and now based upon some experience we’ve had in the past. If this past experience was one that we’ve judged as negative, we may find ourselves closed off and defensive towards the present moment. Today, decide that you are going to break free from the shackles of memory, and instead behold each new moment as it arises, free from judgment, free from looking at it through the debris of the past. Simply remain open and receptive, observing both what’s around you as well as your reaction to it. As you do this, realize that you live in a friendly Universe, that as soon as you let go of resisting its flow, as you cultivate a level of trust in it, you will find that it will carry you exactly where you need to be in order for you to become the embodiment of your highest potential. And you will be surprised to find blessings even in moments and in places where you may have least expected them.
Today, enter into a conscious realization that you are divinely supported. Realize that you live, move, and have your being in an infinite field of overflowing good. Know that all you could ever need, all you could ever hope for or desire has already been given to you before time began. Your task is to simply accept this marvelous gift, and in so doing you are giving it permission to flow into your experiential reality. So take the leap today and make it your conviction to discard any and all thoughts that are contrary to this. At first it may seem to you that you are ignoring so-called “facts.” But as you stick to your conviction, as you make it your prayerful practice to know only the Truth, you soon find that whatever facts had once seemed so real and solid are revealed as being not quite so solid after all. Facts are never solid but always fluid. Facts are always changing, always in a state of flux. Facts, just like circumstances and conditions, are merely the result of a particular way of thinking. Yes, actions certainly play a role in creating facts, but then again what are actions? Are actions not merely thoughts acted out? And are words not merely thoughts articulated? So we may see here then that everything—with no exception—always begins and ends in our own thought. Change the thought, and the facts will follow.
Affirmation: “I rejoice in the realization that I am divinely supported. I accept that the divine gift has been given, and I freely receive from the everlasting wellspring of the Spirit. I hang out in the realm of eternal gratitude as the facts of my life follow my exalted awareness.”
