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.
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.
When we set aside time each day to turn inward and commune with that sweet divine essence, a shift gradually begins to take hold in how we perceive our world. Whereas before the outer may have erroneously appeared as if it held some form of power over us, we are now coming to realize that all true power lies never without but always within. We are coming to realize that the world of form merely follows where our attention goes. And as we choose to place our attention upon the Highest and Best, the divine qualities of Spirit, we are setting into motion a new sequence of events that will cause the seeming external to mirror back to us our new state of consciousness. So the key is to retrain ourselves to no longer merely react to what surrounds us—realizing that what surrounds us are merely the manifestations of old thoughts—and instead to live in the awareness that where we place our attention today will determine the shape of our tomorrows.
The Universe is continuously inviting us to grow and to expand. This is the Divine conspiracy of good that is occurring on our behalf, where we are always given the opportunity to come to know ourselves more fully as who and what we really are. So as we live in that space of knowing that all is always working together for our good—even in those moment where we can’t see it from the limited vantage point of our physical senses—we find we become conscious and willing participants in the everlasting unfolding of the Infinite. Ultimately our purpose is to know ourselves fully and completely as the luminous emanations of light and love that we really are, cosmic beings of infinite proportions, here to reflect and to reveal nothing less than the sacred qualities of the Ineffable. So I invite us to just live in that sweet space of knowing this today. I invite us to live in this joyous expectancy of good without being attached to specifics, and to then let our experience of life unfold from there.
Deep within lies that part of us that is completely untouched by human experience. It is that part of us that is fully conscious of its oneness with All That Is. As we make accessing this deeper dimension our daily practice, we find that we no longer get carried away with whatever appears to be happening in the seeming external. Instead we are enveloped by a peacefulness, a divine reassurance, a knowingness that as we remain anchored at the center, we will most assuredly be guided into the highest and best for our lives. We let go of old limitations, and we make ourselves available to the boundless good that is always seeking to be revealed. My invitation today, remain anchored at the center. And let the high vibrations that emanate from within carry you into new heights of experience in all areas of your life.
Being the spiritual image and likeness of God means that we contain within us all of the sacred qualities of the Infinite. So within every single one of us truly lies the totality of the All Good. In order for us to experience this, we must first embody it. What we embody in consciousness we become. Choose to begin every day by feeling into your innate wholeness through meditation, affirmative prayer, and contemplation. Realize that as a spiritual being there could not possibly be anything missing within you. You are whole, perfect, and complete at the center of your being. As you contemplate and feel into this on a regular basis, it becomes ingrained into your subjective awareness, meaning you are literally reprogramming your mind. You are allowing the Truth of who you are to take you over. So today, embody your wholeness. Know the Truth about who and what you are, and make the decision for your life to be the living demonstration of that.
Being of service is a way of life. When we look for opportunities to serve, we are sending a powerful message to the Universe that says we have and we are willing to give. So we move out of the have-not-and-getting-mindset into the all-needs-met-and-giving-mentality. And the more we give, the more we open ourselves up to receive since giving and receiving are two sides of the same coin. A life of service also breaks down the barriers of separation. Ultimately we can only ever serve the One. And as we serve the One, we come to find that regardless of what form it may take at any given moment, One is really all there ever is, fully present anywhere we look, within or without. Today, look for opportunities to give of yourself. Withhold nothing. Give freely. Realize that what you do for another you are also doing for your Self, because in truth there is only ever One of us.
It has been said that “nothing is as powerful as an idea whose time has come.” Realize that there is a Divine idea for your life. This Divine idea has been held in the Mind of God since before time began. It is the highest vision for your life, your greatest potential fully activated and realized. How do you know if its time has come? You know it when you choose to say “yes” to it. You know it when you decide that you are going to move in the direction of your highest potential, regardless of circumstances, conditions or past experience. This sacred yes on your part sets into motion heavenly forces that exceed your wildest imaginings. Choose to say “yes” to the Divine idea for your life. And let your affirmative mental attitude call on the vast power of the Universe that is always ready to guide and support you.
How we see ourselves makes all the difference when it comes to the kind of experiences we will call forth and co-create. When we see ourselves as separate and apart, we cannot help but call forth experiences that will reflect a sense of fear, doubt, and worry. The good news is that as soon as we begin to see ourselves the way we really are as infinite and limitless spiritual beings having a human incarnation, we shift our experience away from fear and we allow the higher quality of grace to take over. As we know and see ourselves as whole, perfect, and complete, we are in alignment with experiences that will reflect this truth back to us. Now here is the really good news: you have complete control over how you see yourself! So today, choose to see yourself the way you really are. Live in that space of higher awareness, and then go forth and allow the joy of proper seeing to be your guide all throughout the day.
