Focus On Your God Self ~-~-
"Do not dwell in the past, do not dream of the future, concentrate the mind on the present."
How We Get Here...
Sometimes I think it is all about me. I seem to be balancing towards we, though. I sense more and more of God as I go along. It has taken me many atempts on every thing I believe. It is an amazing thing the way our lives unfold. A decision per second, a choice to be made on where you are and where you're going.
God is really important to me. If I had to make a decision for everyone I would prefer that everyone believe in a benevolent Source. And frankly, nothing else makes sense to me. We could all call our source whatever we wanted to and just accept all the names people call their own source. I know this sounds too simple, but if we are just making it up anyway, what difference does it make what each of us calls our source (SOURCE)?
I was in a restaurant recently and sitting across from me was a boy, approximately 7 years old, and on his tee shirt it said, "I make stuff up." My thought was how nice it was to see truth in advertising. If we look within, we can see that we're all making this up. I would never point a finger at you, because I and you are the same. Everything I see in you, I must take as being a reflection of my own interpretive process. There is no one in here but me thinking what I'm thinking. So, I'm guessing the same is true of each of us. If we stop to meditate tonight and then do it again as soon as we are able it will give us a chance to see what our mind is projecting. When I am in a dazed (fearful) state, it seems like everyone else is doing it to me, but when I stop to look inside, I find that there are a lot of things that look like they are going on outside of me, but I am interpreting them so it's still me.
Who or What do you say your source is? My experience is that consciousness is my source. I call this source God, but honestly I don't see what difference it makes what you call them. The difference is made in how I hold this source. In the 'Course In Miricles', the text talks about what is not love is fear. I can see that pretty clearly. It comes down to choices. In this moment what will I choose? Will I be like God which is love, or will I be what is based in fear? I say...
