Of course, we are who we perceive ourselves to be as we live this Life, and that perception is surely important as we experience the drama of human experience. But even as we Love this Life that we are living, or question it or hate it or struggle with it, we always may ask ourselves if we are able to open our perceptions wider!
Are we able to perceive a before and after our here and now, a beyond and within that supports us as we play our roles here? Is there a larger force at play that’s more than this simple stage we’re playing on at the moment?
I say listen to that song that’s always playing for us, that always calls us towards those ever-sounding notes of Love, Joy, and Compassion! Listen to that song and follow where it leads us—to a greater understanding of Who We Really Are in the eternal!
What does it take to open our perception, to begin to understand more than before, no matter what it is that we have already known before? How do we open our minds and awaken our Souls to the brighter Light that illumines All, that Light that is the very core of our Being?
If I were to offer here a few, easy steps to join in on this path of Love, of Loving the Illumination, I would offer a few paving stones, perhaps, that help us step—or dance!—toward the broad, broad lane that welcomes us all! Let’s start with acceptance, with heart, and with a wholehearted, “Yes!” to say we want to join in!
In acceptance, we arrive at a bit of inner Peace, a stillness that allows into our body, our breath, our Being, the idea that some larger force or existence lies all around our body and our brain, and whatever we are deciding to do with it in the moment!
This idea of a Higher force, if we allow it to, will seep into our thoughts, in between the over-busy functionings of our mind and into the still spaces in between, where it already and always Lives! This wisp of an idea, if we merely tend to the stillness, if we leave room for the Peaceful spaces, will expand into Knowing. Our awareness expands naturally this way if we truly give it the calm space that it thrives in!
Now, if we offer our heart to that acceptance and to this idea of some existence and presence greater than our own, then we are truly on our way! For in our heart lies the qualities of Love that carry the tremendous, expansive forces of the Universe, the Love and Compassion that build all that we know in our physical world—with the power of Spirit! When we offer our heart to the thought of this Higher presence, even before it becomes Knowing, we move into the realm of Divine Love and all that it offers!
With a “Yes!” to this process, our heart fills and expands with the Love it is made for, with the Love that composes our very Being here—mind, body, and spirit! Our enthusiasm expands our awareness within our everyday lives, as well, bringing as much of our Spirit into our world here as we allow it to. As our heart fills itself with Love, we tap into the power of the very highest, very fastest frequencies that we live in here on Earth—and the momentum of a wholehearted “Yes!” to this Love transforms Life into a living passion!
So, if we like the idea of accepting the thought of a greater Self than we are able to see in the mirror, and if we feel our devotion to this Knowing in our heart, then we can live Love in every aspect of our daily, human Life with the enthusiastic, “Yes!” of passion, for the sake of all that is Divine in each of us—and in our entire world!
Loving the enthusiasm of declaring, “Yes!” to all that is Higher—in each of us!
