When we replace all sense of taking things for granted, and instead live in a continual state of awe and wonder, in a state of reverence for all of Life, beholding the sacredness of Life in us, through us, and all around us, we become impervious to the lower thought forms of the world. We no longer buy into the miss-perceptions of fear, doubt and worry, and instead we live in that sweet realm of calm knowingness. We know and sense that we are maintained and sustained by all of Life, we sense that we are immersed in a field of indescribable Love-Beauty that has already given us everything we could ever want, hope for, or desire. In this exalted awareness we no longer go into the world trying to get our good from it, but much rather do we bring the good that’s already in us to the world. Invariably a tremendous freedom arises out of this. We move through our days with a sense of grace, always receiving back what we’ve given, simply because what we’ve given is already within us.
It seems to me that Unconditional Love must always contain within it some recognition of the fundamental goodness of all Life. When we are loving unconditionally, we have recognized that regardless of appearances and conditions, beneath the surface of things all is always well. Rather than judging by appearances, we yield to the recognition of the Divine Presence everywhere. Naturally this requires practice, and the best place to begin is with ourselves. As we learn to love ourselves unconditionally, we create the space within our own awareness that will allow us to love all others unconditionally. After all, every relationship we have is ultimately a reflection of the relationship we have with ourselves. And our relationship with ourselves in turn reflects our relationship with our Source. So today, yield to the spiritual quality of Unconditional Love. Let it take over your life. Let it flood your awareness, and you will experience yourself as who and what you really are—a unique and individualized expression of Limitless Goodness.
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.
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.
At first it might seem counter-intuitive to approach Life with the awareness that everything in your seeming external world is merely a reflection of a corresponding state of being that is within you. But the truth is there are no exceptions to this. The outer is a perfect reflection of the inner just as a mirror will always give you a perfect reflection of your physical likeness. All change must first be created on the inside before it can be experienced on the outside. As you engage in your daily spiritual practice of meditation, affirmative prayer, tuning into the highest vision for your life—as you do this every single day, regardless of whether or not you feel like it, you will experience a profound shift in your perception. No longer will this seem counter-intuitive, it will seem quite natural. The speed at which your thoughts and beliefs manifest quickens, because trained thought is considerably more powerful than untrained thought. You begin to see more and more correlations between what it is you have been thinking about and what shows up in your world. Truthfully, prepare to be shocked and amazed! Soon all you can do is to simply say, “Thank you, Universe! Thank you, God! Thank you, Life! I am exceedingly abundantly blessed!” In fact, begin to say this right now! Start there, and let the rest unfold.
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 when it comes to that. Your experiences invariably shift as you shift your perceptions.
There is a principle at work in the Universe that says that if you push against something, it will push against you. The kind of energy that you put out there is exactly the kind of energy that will be reflected back to you. A profound freedom arises once we are able to give up our need for struggling, once we let go of the mistaken notion that there is something “out there” that is opposed to us, and we instead relax into an awareness of the law of least effort. Rather than resisting the flow of Life, we learn to trust Life. We learn to trust that the Universe is on our side even in those moments where can’t quite see how something will play out. We learn to radiate an open, friendly, and receptive kind of energy, and we invariably find that this energy then comes straight back to us. Just as the acorn seed doesn’t struggle to become an oak tree, so too you can simply give up struggling right here and right now, and replace it with a simple, child-like faith that knows that all the forces and all the laws of Heaven are ready to support you at all times.
Affirmation: “Today I relax into an awareness of the fundamental goodness of Life. I know that I am divinely guided and divinely supported. I freely receive the bountiful gifts and the rich blessings that Beloved Father-Mother God has in store for me. And so it is.”
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.
