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.
Anytime we grow and become more fully ourselves, it can seem at times that on the surface of our lives there is a level of uncertainty. This is not a sign that something has gone wrong, but that everything has gone right! It just means that our old mental-emotional structures and paradigms are falling apart and opening the door to a new way of being, a way of going about our life that is in integrity with the sacred qualities of our Authentic Self. So on the surface we may experience the turbulence of transformation, but beneath it there is order and harmony. Beneath it there is an infinite organizing power that is constantly arranging things for our highest and best good—if we will but let it! The deciding factors are always our own perceptions and points of views. We only ever receive as much as we are willing to accept. Rather than judging by appearances, our intention then becomes to stand in an awareness of the Truth, to simply know that the totality of the All-Good is conspiring on our behalf, and that all the forces of Heaven are cheering us on to embody more of that magnificent and luminous light-being that we truly are.
Authentic transformation is not merely making superficial and cosmetic changes on the surface level of our lives. Authentic transformation is a deep and soulful uncovering of who and what we really are. When transformation happens there may be a period during which old mental patterns, fear based thought forms, and lesser perceptions more powerfully come to the forefront. It’s almost as if they are making one last stand, yet in truth the reason for them being there is to give us an opportunity to release them. So in those moments in which we become conscious of perceptions which no longer serve us, our assignment becomes to place all our attention upon the higher qualities that we want to bring into our lives. We literally shine the light of higher awareness upon the seemingly dark corners, and as we know, when we turn on the light, darkness disappears. We transmute the lower into the higher. We allow authentic transformation to take over our lives. Today, shine the light of your higher awareness upon anything that appears to be less than the highest. Know the Truth. And then allow the Truth to reveal itself to you in your experience.
We seek to not merely have an intellectual understanding of universal truths and spiritual principles, but to live by them, to practically apply them in our day to day lives. It is only then that transformation can occur, because transformation is always experiential. To do this we must begin with some amount of faith. We must begin with the proposition that there is more to Life than what we can perceive with our physical senses. The moment we take on this faith the size of a mustard seed, we discover the wonderful truth that faith always builds upon itself. In other words, even the tiniest amount of faith—when lived by and acted upon—increases to the point where it will move any and all mountains of obstruction. It is then that we come to find that we have moved beyond merely believing, beyond simply hoping, into actually having an experiential knowing that our life is indeed the Life of God, and that we are here to demonstrate, embody, and experience the unbounded magnificence of All That Is in all that we do.
