Your Self is calling out to be recognized for what it is – an awakened master, the presence of Christ in you that would inform every step, inform every decision, inform the quality of your perception, inform the very nature of your forever-expanding, transparent consciousness. For it is your consciousness, alone, that can reach out and embrace all created things, until you literally realize all things have arisen from within you!
That is how big you are! That is how grand you are! Why? Because that is all you are! You are the ocean from which waves and waves of dimensions and worlds have arisen. That Mind is what you are required to let be in you, even as once it was within me, as I walked upon your Earth. Do not make it difficult.
What I learned
All of my life I have known only my self, have focused on only my self, and now Jeshua is asking me to recognize and live as my Self. How do I make this hard? It should be the easiest thing in the world to simply be who I am. Yet, I have only glimpses of the child of God I was created.
One way I make it hard is when I defend my self. I have been spending this week meeting with customers and explaining why my product has increased in price. I started with the idea that I would meet great resistance and that I would lose customers. I thought of many ways to defend my position. I planned and schemed. I felt fearful. I was conflicted and out of peace. I stopped my self and asked the Holy Spirit to help me see this differently.
He reminded me of my true purpose and I realized that these people are not just customers. They are not potential problems or the cause of my unease. They are my brothers, one with me, and part of my one whole Self. I remembered that this is not a stranger before me, but one who feels as I feel, one who longs as I long, and prays for peace as I have prayed. This changed everything.
Before I walked in to see each customer, I remembered how sacred this moment was and I asked the Holy Spirit to show me how to extend my treasure in this moment. I was no longer defending anything, but seeking only to experience my Self as part of their Self. I asked how I might join with them, how I might be helpful. Then I simply said what needed to be said, but I said it out of love and not out of fear. This changed everything.
