Life in all its wonder and glory is continuously evolving towards greater and greater expressions of itself. We can see this evolutionary process at work everywhere in nature. Ultimately 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. And this means we always have a choice. We must make a conscious choice to evolve, we must consciously choose to move in the direction of our highest potential. We do this by letting go of any lesser perceptions, by releasing any unconscious agreements with mediocrity that we may have made. And instead we simply know that All-That-Is is standing by to support us, to guide us and inspire us to become more fully ourselves. So today, surrender to the Divine pattern of perfection for your life. Hold the intention that you are going to set free all of your gifts and talents, and then let your Silent Partner show you the way.
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.
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.
Give yourself permission to examine your life, and simply notice any areas in which you may find that you have been holding back. Become aware of any old perceptions that do not line up with your true nature. Then, express gratitude. Be grateful because you have become aware of these old perceptions. You have become conscious enough to notice them, and once you are conscious of them they no longer control you. And in the spirit of gratitude and appreciation, fully aware that you have grown as a result of all your experiences—the ones you’ve labeled good and the ones you’ve labeled bad—choose to simply let go of all that is now no longer serving you. Step into the awareness that nothing has any power over you unless you allow it to, and realize that you can let go of anything you no longer want to hold on to. Today, claim your divine freedom as a free and infinite spirit. Determine to live your highest potential, free from anything that does not serve you. Your experiences invariably shift as you shift your perceptions.
Dedicated spiritual practice and a continual yielding to the divine pattern results in certain insights that cannot be explained rationally. But cosmic knowledge is infinite, so there will always be things that have yet to be revealed to us. For this reason I can say there are things I know, and there are things I don’t know. Here is something I know: God is good. Life is good. It is eternal. There are heavenly forces that are constantly seeking to conspire for our highest and best good. In short, we live in a loving Universe! Each day I rejoice in the sweetness of this. I invite you to do the same. Let us celebrate the goodness of Life together!
As we open ourselves to the larger perspective, we begin to catch all those areas where in the past lesser perceptions may have covered our vision of what is truly possible. As we embrace our true identities as luminous beings of light and love, unique emanations of an ineffable Creator-Presence that is in, through, and all around us, our vision naturally broadens. We awaken to the indescribable beauty of Life, we see the richness of opportunity for humanity as a whole to grow out of the infant stages of spiritual evolution, and to enter into the age of spiritual maturity. This maturing process begins in our own individual lives, from where it expands to include more of that vast kaleidoscope of spiritual beauty that makes up the highest possibility for humanity as an expression of the Divine.
Today, live in the awareness of your true identity as a sacred emanation of Life itself. Realize that you represent the totality of Life, and that within you there is a sense of preciousness, a sense of sacredness, a vibration of pure Love that is nothing less than the feeling tonality of your true being. This vibration is found at the center of all of Life. Perhaps you had become accustomed to viewing yourself as merely the son or daughter of your parents, but today become aware of who you were before your parents were born. This is who you are right now—a beloved child of the Universe, here to reflect and reveal the eternal qualities of the Ineffable within this experiential world of time and space.
The Authentic You cannot be found in any particular activity. You will not uncover your Essential Self on the surface level of your life. Beneath all the activity, beneath whatever may arise in each new now-moment, lies something that ultimately cannot be described, but it can be felt. It cannot be perceived with the physical senses, but it can be spiritually discerned with the senses beyond the five senses. This is why spending time each day in silent communion with the Spirit of Life is so crucial. When we experience our intimate at-one-ment with Spirit, we free ourselves from all that does not belong. We invite more of our Real Self to emerge and come to the surface. As we do this consistently, we find we bring forth all of the sacred qualities of our true being. We anchor the transcendent realm of the infinite overflowing good on earth through our words, our actions, and our intentions.
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.
