Assurance of the Right Way

January 4, 2010

Went to sleep 1/3/10, after a wonderfully deep affirmative prayer / meditation / visioning session, in which I experienced a profound release and surrender to Spirit, and then “caught” the vision that my spiritual career is to be based on letting go of the surface mind and completely connecting with and focusing on Spirit’s guidance. (So I knew I’d probably awaken to something pretty good!).

Woke up 1/4, with a strong assurance: the paradigm for my work, and for my entire life (!), is definitely set and clear! Every choice, every direction, and every action – indeed, every moment – is now based on Spirit’s guidance!

So this means: no more planning what I “can do”, based on what others have done (although I will still check them out for inspiration!); no more deciding and proceeding based on “what’s the best thing to do” in my career, or life. EVERYTHING, ALL THE TIME, comes from my connection- my oneness – with Spirit: always looking to THAT direction, with everything from planning to deciding whether to accept or decline, pursue or not, to the actual doing of the creative work, etc.

Now the nagging thought, “How am I going to do this? “ (with so many options available, esp. in terms of my transformational career, and continuing spiritual education) is settled: I will let go of all the surface mind chatter, and “tune in” to Spirit, to get that guidance that is always perfectly right.

Doing this, I am assured that my career path, and my life, is unfolding in the utmost beautiful, perfect way, and that all the actions and directions I choose, and the way in which I “do my thing’ is the absolute best, is perfect!!

This is a complete assurance that my live events, my recordings, my writings, my day-to-day (moment-to-moment) interactions – everything – are completely based on that spiritual connection, and are therefore right, deep, inspired, and inspiring!

I Am That!!

December 24, 2009

Inspired by a statement in Michael Bernard Beckwith’s book, “Spiritual Liberation”” – “Realize that you are an individualized expression of the one life of Spirit that has become your very own Self”- I got a realization of the big difference a seemingly small tweak in terminology can make.

I’d already made the transition from the old “me here, God up there” concept to “God’s everywhere, including in me” many years ago. Still there was a sense of separation: “I want to commune with the Source”; even “God and I are one”, while affirming unity, still feels like it’s talking about 2 separate entities.

But “I am That”! “I am Spirit”! “My essence is God”! “I am made from God”! There is no separation- although I am not the totality of God (by any means), I (and you and everything) am (we are) It!! (And “Thou art That”!)

In trying to describe this feeling, the parental terminology came up: “God the Father”; “Mother-Father God”. Of course, this can bring up the old anthropomorphic concept, when taken anywhere-near literally; but felt, instead, it’s seen as a metaphor, which describes the feeling, the realization, that we are “made of God-stuff”, and the unity with God, without barriers, can be sort of likened to that of a parent with its child: an inseparable genetic and emotional / love-based connection. The feeling of an unbreakable family bond, something constant, etc.- but even more connected than that. Again, this is a metaphor, trying to describe an experience of God. As Bishop John Shelby Spong says, we cannot define God, but we can describe our experiences of God…

So we are describing this unity, this always-open communication (and communion). Another useful metaphor (which also goes along with modern science) is the communication between different parts of the body, like the brain and the eye, for example (both of which, along with all parts, and all cells, it has now been shown, have intelligence). So God and I (and you and everything) are parts of the whole (and the whole, of course is all God!), and there is constant connection and communication between all of these.

Aha! So God is all, and I am a part of that All! Not one with It; not connected to It- a part of It!

So, what’s the point? The point is, I’m not (we’re not) sitting here, separate from God, working toward communication and a feeling of unity. I am (we are) a part of God, inseparable, indivisible, always! So that omniscience, omnipotence, omnipresence, and omniaction is always here, and no effort is required to “get it”. Joy! I am (we are) always fulfilled!!!

You Already Know It All!

December 22, 2009

A popular term in spirituality and related happenings is “it resonated with me”. It’s that feeling you get when hearing or reading something that says, “Yeah, that’s right. I can relate to that.” etc.

It occurred to me that these things that resonate with us are things we already know at some level- like the level of the super conscious mind, the Infinite Universal Mind, common to everyone, etc. Like that enlightenment that we already have, but don’t always realize.

So the introduction to the book I’m working on will say, “You already know this…this book is just a reminder to remember it” !

We already have everything we need!

Q: Will I really be able to ___ (get this done, make it, etc.)?

November 17, 2009

A: Relax: the Power that runs the whole universe is working for you right now! (Another realization I got when I awoke in the a.m.)
