“We choose our joys and sorrows long before we experience them.” – Kahlil Gibran
“Madness is rare in individuals - but in groups, political parties, nations, and eras it's the rule.”
– Friedrich Nietzsche
“This is the true joy in life,
The being used for a purpose recognized by yourself as a mighty one;
The being thoroughly worn out before you are thrown on the scrap heap;
The being a force of nature instead of a feverish selfish little clod of ailments and grievances complaining that the world will not devote itself to making you happy.”
– George Bernard Shaw
“In deep meditation the flow of concentration is continuous like the flow of oil” - Patanjali
“Change is the essence of life. Be willing to surrender what you are for what you become.” – Unknown
Our Limitless Reality
All of us possess a transcendent form of consciousness; which is commonly known as spirit. Yes, you do, I do, and everyone does.
Spirit, is the source of our Enlightened Power, and is one with the mind of God. God’s mind is accessible to everyone, and by calling on the mind of God, we are enabled to move beyond the limitations of our own predictable judgmental thinking. We possess the power to access this mind at any time. We can be one with this Enlightened Power at any place of our choosing. To enact the mind of God we need to call on it, then allow its powers to prevail.
When the mind of God within us, is synchronized with the mind of God that reigns throughout the cosmos, then the thoughts that arise from this unity become our sole source for wisdom and guidance. Nothing is more powerful. When united with the mind of God, we are transcending human consciousness. We are one with Divine Intelligence.
The mind of God knows only love, so it does not think harmful thoughts. It knows freedom so it does not judge. It knows only strength so it does not condemn or overtake. It is fulfilled, so it doesn’t recognize jealousy. It is innocent, so it is not guided by guilt. Condemnation has neither meaning nor value, so there is no reason to blame.
When we choose to listen to the voice of God within us, we are listing to a message that flows directly from the mind of God. This same Divine Intelligence flows to and through every part of everything in creation. To receive it, we need only to ask for it.
When we are unified with the mind of God, our reality is altered. Judgmental thinking is thwarted. Condemnation evaporates. We no longer take meaning from making comparisons of our self to others.
God knows only love. As we make a shift in reality from human consciousness to Divine Consciousness, we simultaneously modify our way of thinking. We see the world through loving eyes. We see that our choices change. We no longer rely on old preset logic patterns for making choices. We willingly give others a break, and are less inclined to immediately dispute those with a different opinion. No longer are we insistent on having our way, or showing others that we have the “right” answer.
Daily life becomes an easier and satisfying journey. We are one with peace, love and inner-contentment. We no longer feel limited by the restrictive thinking.
We are no longer held hostage by judgmental opinions and bias perceptions. db¤
Realize that true happiness lies within you.
Waste no time and effort searching for peace and contentment
and joy in the world outside.
Remember that there is no happiness in having or in getting, but only in giving. Reach out. Share.
Smile. Hug. Happiness is a perfume you cannot pour on others
without getting a few drops on yourself.
