Let us make it our practice to see only the very best. In every situation, in every encounter, rather than noticing what appears to be wrong, notice what is right. Notice the potential that is there. If there appears to be lack, be aware that there is abundance trying to happen. If there appears to be disharmony, realize that order and harmony are seeking to be revealed. Any apparent absence is merely the Presence of God seeking to be recognized. When you place your attention on the potential, you are aligning yourself with the Highest and Best—you are looking at the world the way God sees it. So today, be an ambassador of pure potentiality. Radically shine your light wherever you go, independent of circumstances or conditions. As you transform your perception, you transform your life.
As we find ourselves on this journey through time and space, this trek of constant unfolding and expansion, part of our “job description” is to be willing to always stretch ourselves when it comes to how much good we are willing to let into our lives. The truth is there is no limit to how much good we can experience, and the Universe never withholds anything from us. Yet it all comes down to how much we are capable of receiving. We learn to truly receive as we realize that everything has already been given, and that it’s up to us to recognize and embody this truth. So take time each day to feel deeply into the sacred qualities of love, joy, well-being and harmony that are already within you. Invite these qualities to take over your life. Speak from them, live from them, circulate them—and then allow the Law of Perfect Reflection to mirror them right back to you in the form of your experiences. Remember, life is always lived from the inside out. You must first become in consciousness what you wish to experience in the world of physical phenomena.
When we speak of what is ultimately Real we are speaking of that which cannot be perceived with the physical senses. Ultimate Reality is timeless and eternal. Naturally none of what we can see in physical reality meets this criteria. The world of physical phenomena is constantly changing. It is a continuous appearing, disappearing, and reappearing of form. Yet beneath this never-ending flow of activity lies a dimension that is untouched by all of it. Beneath the ripples on the surface of the ocean of Existence lies a place of profound depth, a peaceful knowingness out of which the Wellspring of Good freely supplies whatever is required to nourish and sustain all that is. It is when we live from an awareness of this deeper dimension that we find ourselves in alignment with its evolutionary impulse which is always geared towards harmony, well-being, and continuous self-expression.
The principle of embrace everything, hold onto nothing, is a principle of non-attachment. In other words, we embrace everything that is happening in our experiential reality—the things we would label good and the things we would label bad—yet we do not hold onto them, meaning we do not cling to them. We are fully aware that everything in the world of physical phenomena is constantly changing, and we are willing to just let it all pass through. This does not make us distant and removed, however; it actually allows us to be more fully present, to feel more connected and at one with all that flows into our lives. We are able to love more fully, without holding onto expectations; we are able to give of ourselves more completely, without holding onto preconceived notions of how our good will flow back to us. We are fully present in the moment, living in that sweet space that allows the highest and best to be revealed to us at all times. Today, practice the principle of embracing everything, yet holding onto nothing. Realize that you live in a loving Universe that is always supporting your growth, expansion, and greatest fulfillment. So say “yes” to it, and allow more of Heaven to break out on earth through and as you.
When our spiritual growth and transformation becomes our highest priority, everything else naturally falls into place. As we begin each day with the high intention that today we will unveil more of our authentic self, today we will uncover more of the magnificent God-Essence that is within us, we are naturally guided into a place of alignment, where all areas of our life arrange themselves in a manner that reflects our well-being, harmony in our affairs, soulful fulfillment and all our needs being met. As we tend first to our soul’s journey—seeking first the Kingdom—all else will take care of itself as it is added unto us.
We might say that the purpose of Life in its physical form is to give expression to what Browning called the “inner splendor,” that Divine pattern of perfection which is the highest and best, infinite potential fully realized and fully expressed. While all of nature gravitates in this direction, you and I have this thing called free will. This means we always have a choice. We must consciously choose to evolve, we must consciously choose to move in the direction of our highest potential. We do this by releasing all unconscious agreements with mediocrity that we may have made, and instead we know that the Ineffable is constantly seeking to guide us and inspire us to become more fully ourselves, to reveal more of our infinite nature. Today, hold the intention that you are going to express fully who and what you really are. Begin with the choice that you are going to set free all of your gifts, skills and talents. Then, simply allow your Silent Partner to show you the way.
There comes a tremendous sense of freedom once we awaken to the fact that we are never at the mercy of circumstances or conditions. Regardless of where we find ourselves in our journey, the truth is that we always hold the spiritual power to choose what we want to call forth. What you bring into the space is what you get out of the space. In other words, if you approach your day with a sense of worry and unease, what you will get are circumstances and conditions to be worried and uneasy about. If you bring judgment and resentment, you will receive more to be resentful of, and you will find yourself being judged by others even as you are judging them. Yet when you bring peace, when you bring love and acceptance, you will actually be creating the very conditions that will allow for peace, love and harmony to demonstrate in your experience. Today, become conscious of what you are bringing into the space of your life. Monitor your thoughts, and choose to dwell only on thoughts that reflect the sacred qualities of the Infinite. Remember that you are the artist painting this three-dimensional picture that is your very life. Choose to make it a work of art! Choose to make it a masterpiece!
Affirmation: “Today I dwell upon the infinite nature of my very being. The space in which my life unfolds is sacred. It is infused with peace, love, joy, harmony, well-being, and creativity. All thoughts contrary to this are dissolved in the light of my higher awareness. I am lifted out of all reactionary patterns as I take full charge as the eternal soul-artist that I am.”
