My dear friends,
I am hoping, as this day passes, that all is well in your world. It is my prayer that peace abides in your heart, that your mind is at rest today, and that you feel fulfillment in your soul.
That is an interesting turn of phrase, is it not? "Fulfillment in your soul..." What does that mean, exactly? The words just came off my keyboard just now, and I had to stop, myself, to think about what I meant by that. Here's what I come to...
I believe that my soul has come to my body at this time and in this place for a reason. I believe that all of life has a reason and that my soul's particular purpose in this lifetime is part of that. I believe that the reason for all of life is to give Divinity Itself an opportunity to express. To know Itself. To grow Itself.
That opportunity is provided to Divinity by Divinity, through the miracle of Physicalization. The non-physical becomes physical ("And God was made Man... and the Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us...") in order to manifest in the Realm of Relativity, thus to Know Itself in Its Own Experience.
And I believe that, as an Individuation of Divinity, my personal opportunity is to decide and declare, express and experience, become and fulfill Who I Really Am. The mystery of this is that I Am nothing in particular until I say that I am. And so, in each moment of Now, God must be Born Again.
To put this another way, I am (we are) in a constant process of recreation. We are recreating ourselves anew, in the next grandest version of the greatest vision ever we held about Who We Are. The idea, in short, is to see just how much Divinity we can express Right Here, Right Now — and by so doing, create and define God.
I believe that Life is God, physicalized.
So now...how all of this relates to my own present-moment experience...
This morning, as I write this, I am looking at my Divine Self and pondering, "How much of my Divinity have I been displaying, expressing, experiencing this day? This week? This month? This year? This Lifetime?"
And — far more important — "How much of my Divinity am I willing to display, express, and experience in the moments just ahead? In the weeks and months and years just before me?"
This can never be considered a burden, however. I mean, if the question comes up in my mind in a way that brings me a heavy heart, then there is something wrong with the way I am considering the question itself — or, for that matter, what it means to express Divinity. Could it be that I am expressing Divinity by being just what I am being Right Here, Right Now?
And yet, even if that were true, does that absolve me, relieve me, of any need — and remove from me any desire — to improve? To go higher? To reach farther? Do I stop right where I am, simply because I am acceptable just the way I am?
Ah, yes...the questions of the deeply searching...
I'll ponder them and see what I come up with. In the meantime, have a wonderful, wonderful life.
Love and hugs,
