Spirit loves you so much it has imparted the entirety of itself into you. In other words, within you are all of the divine qualities and creative capacities of the Infinite. This is the meaning of having been made in the spiritual image and likeness of God. Yet as a being of free will you always have the option to choose. You can choose to embody and express your true nature, which includes but is not limited to love, joy, geniosity, ingenuity, creativity, peace of mind, well-being and generosity. Or you can choose to block the flow of these divine qualities by holding on to lesser, fear-based perceptions. Today, make it your practice to meditate on the higher qualities that are within you seeking to be set free. Decide that you are going to consciously tune into them and invite them to express through you. As this becomes your priority, the windows of your perception are cleansed, and rather than waiting for a blessing to occur, you realize with sweet delight that you are the blessing!
True power has nothing to do with externals. True power is to live in a way where the world of phenomena and sense perception no longer determines our state of mind, how we feel, and how we treat other individuals. When we set the intention ahead of time that today, no matter what, we are going to be at peace; that today, no matter what, we are going to be loving, kind, and generous; that today we are going to allow joy to be the order of our being, when we set these intentions ahead of time, we are stepping into true power. Then when we find ourselves confronted with apparent negativity, we are no longer drawn into a robotic reactive pattern, but instead are able to respond from a place of spiritual empowerment. We are able to remain loving and kind independent of circumstances. So today, set your intentions ahead of time. Choose what qualities you will express today. Commit to them. And then watch as your experience is transformed.
Every soul that has ever incarnated in this world of time and space has done so with intentionality. Ultimately for all of us this intentionality is to become more fully ourselves, to tap into that vast storehouse of divine gifts within, and to activate the limitless potential that lies at the core of our being. So while we all share the same overall purpose—which, in a nutshell, is to wake up to our magnificent nature—we each find our own unique way of doing so. We all have our unique set of gifts, skills, talents, and capacities. And it is only once we have given ourselves permission to be completely and authentically ourselves, that we will be in a position of experiencing the greatest level of fulfillment. So let us have the courage and the determination to simply be who we are—and then let us freely and joyously shine that wonderfully unique light of ours unto the world.
In every encounter and in every situation we can either add or subtract value. We add value when we offer a kind word, when we come from a place of love and from a willingness to be of service. We subtract value when we offer words of judgment, when we come from a place of resentment and unconstructive criticism.
As we walk in an awareness of our true nature, let us venture to always add and to never subtract value. Let us have the intentionality that wherever we go, we are going to come from love and be of service. This is how we truly experience ourselves as the light of the world, and as a blessing to everyone we encounter.
Ultimately every choice we could ever make, will ever make, and have ever made, comes down to a variation of the one choice there is. And that is the choice between love and fear. Today, and on all days of our lives, let us be proficient in choosing love. Let us be willing to look with our Inner Eye and “see” that we are intimately connected with every single being on this planet and beyond.
And so in this time of change, in this time of new beginnings, let us be the ones who have the vision to see the endless possibilities that lie ahead for all of humanity. Let us dare to be visionaries. Let us dare to be revolutionaries of Oneness. And let us have the courage to think new thoughts.
And finally, let us send light and love to every corner on this planet, to every individual, and to all of the nations. In doing so we shall be mindful to bless not only every being, but also to bless the earth herself. What we are doing all over the world is creating a powerful vibratory field of love, the impact of which will extend far beyond our surface mind’s ability to comprehend.
Today, as you move about your day, allow yourself to simply hold the awareness that you have been endowed with the creative faculties and the divine qualities that are found within the Mind of the Infinite. Not merely some of these faculties, not merely a few of these qualities – all of them.
So knowing that God poured the entirety of God-Self into you, allow your life to be a joyous demonstration of this truth. Shine your light freely, sing your song, and dance your dance – for you have the keys of the kingdom.
Allow your life to reflect and reveal the magnificence of All That Is. Let yourself become a dispenser of divine blessings, and you will find that, before you know it, more good than you could have ever imagined will be chasing you down.
The reason for this is not mysterious. It is simply Universal Law that as you focus upon giving, you open yourself up to receive. And that is because giving and receiving are really two sides of the same coin.
So as we give from a joyous and sincere heart, as we give from the abundant wellspring of our Soul, our seemingly outward experience will mirror our generosity back to us. For the outer is always a reflection of the inner. And so as we learn to be effective givers as well as receivers, we are in fact learning to participate in the natural cosmic circulation of energy that is always ongoing.
