If we look around the larger world, it can be overwhelming and mind-boggling with all that happens even on a daily basis! If you choose to partake of it, what the news attempts to constantly feed us is, for the most part, staggeringly awful in its “terrorizing” content. It is all too easy to get caught up in the collective body of dis-quieted feelings, which seem to be flooded with fear and the projection of worst-case scenarios—what if this happens or what if that happens. Oh how our personal “pain body” of the egoic mind can run away with itself and add its frantic measure to the collective insanity and irrational false premises.
But, each day we stand at the fork of our Path, and we get to choose. Will I remain consciously aware of my thoughts and feelings, and stay centered in a place of Love and Unity, a Path that represents the trueness of Life? Or, will I race down the overcrowded Path of individuals who hurry, worry, jostle for their place amongst the herd, and clamor for what they believe to be rightfully theirs, all based on deep-seated fears of separateness and dis-unity?
Each day, each moment we get to choose
Take a moment now, if you will, to breath a little more deeply and imagine a bench on your Pathway. It’s a lovely, soft, balmy afternoon with the Sun filtering gently through the trees. Allow yourself to sit on this inviting bench. You have all the time in the world. As you look more closely at your surroundings, there is an exquisite array of flowers in bloom—all ethereal colors of light and radiance—and the grass is the most exquisite sunlit green you’ve ever seen. The very essence of the flowers and grass exude a feeling of harmony, balance, and completeness. The cells of your being are fed the vibration of tranquility. You feel centered in the freshness of the air as the Sunlight warms you. All is entirely well. On every level of your being, you are already emancipated spiritually.
You do have the ability to create a world that already is, the peaceful one you want to live in. Everything you can imagine, in its highest expression, is already present. Beneath all outward appearances, there is an abiding Principle and Presence of Oneness, Beauty, Joy, and Love. This world of harmony awaits you because you are already healed, whole, perfect. You have only to realize and accept the Spiritual Light of Love that already shines on and within you.
Live your life as though everything IS already present.
As the One Divine Being, individually expressing Itself, we are already the light of the world. We are God’s luminous presence on Earth, aware of the tiniest heartbeat, movement, breath, and song of life. The underlying reality in which we live, move, and have our being is this earthly world already is God’s Heaven and thus seen “through a glass darkly” no more. We are all joint heirs to the Golden Kingdom—already within us.
Alas, nothing can come into our lives unless we allow it to enter through our consciousness, our conscious participation. God at the helm waits to confirm and affirm our true identity. What conscious choice will you make at this spiral of personal and collective Ascent? Will you choose the Greater Light already present?
I am grateful for what I am and have.
