Taking no thought is to live in a state of complete trust. We trust in the fundamental goodness of Life. We trust that the Universe is always supporting us, that things are always working together for our good. We don’t have to look to anything in the external to know this. Instead, we sense it at the core of our being. We take on a calm assurance and a divine confidence, which then in turn are reflected in our experience as unexpected blessings, moments of synchronicity and divine opportunity. This is what it means to be aligned with the fundamental order and harmony of All That Is. Grace takes over our existence, and each new moment becomes a sweet celebration of awe and wonder, of gratitude for the gift of life itself.
Proper seeing begins with noticing all those areas in our life that are working well. We literally embark on an inquiry where we ask, “What is working in my life? What can I be grateful for?” And as gratitude becomes our dominant vibration, we soon begin to see that we have far more to be grateful for than we may have even realized. The wonderful truth is we can be grateful for both what is wanted as well as what is seemingly unwanted, for hidden in what appears unwanted are opportunities for growth and expansion. So as we see properly we begin to notice even the hidden blessings. We realize that Life is always for us, and that all things are always working together for our good. Today, dwell upon what is working in your life. Let your gratitude be the doorway that guides you into proper seeing, where you will realize with sweet delight that Life truly is magnificent beyond measure.
Becoming a more complete embodiment of our Authentic Self requires us to gradually unlearn what the world may have taught us. It is a returning to our state of original innocence that we completely inhabited when we arrived here in this world of time and space. We enter into Heaven-Consciousness by becoming as little children because children are quite naturally in touch with this uninhibited state of joy and wonder that is who we really are. There is an inclination towards possibility thinking, a free flow of imagination and ingenuity, a sense that all is well and that Life is for us. This is the state of being from which we originated, and it’s the state of being to which we return. The beautiful thing is that we can choose to live from there once again right here and right now. Today, get in touch with your inner child. Allow that part of you that is pure joy to come to the surface and play in the sandbox of your life. Release any sense of looking at life as being “serious,” and instead behold existence with a sense of awe and wonder. Be grateful that you get to choose what state of consciousness you bring into your experience, and then let all that you are flow freely into all that you do.
Lasting peace is experienced when we let ourselves be comfortable in our own process of unfoldment. In other words, we are not projecting our happiness into a future moment where all our dreams have come to pass, but we are allowing ourselves to be happy right here and right now. Being comfortable in the process of unfoldment means that we have remembered that the journey is never about arriving, but that the perfection always lies in the unfolding. This applies to all areas of our life, and it can be put into practice easily as we remain open and receptive to the Here-And-Now-Moment, trusting the process of Life, fully aware that we live in a loving Universe that is always nudging us towards greater and greater heights of self-expression. Today, declare that you are comfortable in your process of unfoldment. Claim that where you are is perfect. It is a stepping stone for you to express more of who you are. And the journey is always one from glory to greater glory.
Being comfortable with our process of unfoldment means that we have given ourselves permission to be happy right here and right now. We no longer live under the illusion that the future will be better than the present moment, that when such and such happens we will finally be happy. Rather than projecting our happiness into the future, we choose to be happy now. We engage in the practice of radical gratitude, where we relinquish any sense of taking anything for granted, and we simply become tremendously grateful for all that is in our lives now. We scan our lives, on the lookout for anything that we can appreciate. This raises our vibration, it shifts our perspective, tonic chemicals begin to flood our body temple, and we find ourselves in alignment with the fundamental order and harmony of All-That-Is. We become a candidate for insight, divine right action and synchronicity to take over our very existence. This is a sweet way of being, indeed!
