People should think less about what they ought to do and more about what they ought to be. If only their being were good, their works would shine forth brightly. Do not imagine that you can ground your salvation upon actions; it must rest on what you are.One of my teachers once told me you can't hide your consciousness for it shows up in all you do and say.
Or - as within, so without. Or, as a man thinketh in his heart...
Our project needs to be, it seems to me, to work steadfastly upon who we are inside, on our relationship with God - and then what we do cannot be anything but good, beneficial, lifting, light-filled and whole/holy.
How do we know we need interior work? Look at the results in our lives, if they are not all that good is, then that points to something inside that needs healing and brought into alignment with the Love and Light of God. If we create less than pure love, we still have work to do inside of ourselves. We need to stop trying to "fix" others and humbly look ourselves fearlessly in the eyes, in the soul. We need to ask where to start in our prayer time. The most common answer is forgiveness, then change of heart to stop creating resentments and strife, to stop being judgmental. We move in the direction of simply living as Love, without attachments or agendas, with no manipulation, coming to each moment with all we are as children of the Most High,
It is possible for us to move daily a bit in the direction of God as the Ground of our being, nudging ourselves along The Way into being more and more of who we are in the Mind of God - as God's beloved creation, made in the same pattern, made to be unconditional love.
I come this day to You, asking for Your Guidance for what I must do to be what I ought to be. I listen...
