Before a good musician begins to interact with other musicians they seek to ‘get on the same page’ with others by tuning up their instruments so that there can be congruency and perfect harmony. By making the time to ‘set the tone’ for their performances, they ensure that if their performance is flawless, that all the listeners, including them, will be blessed with sounds that are ‘in tune’ and harmonious.
The unfolding of your Divine purpose in Divine order is the ‘one song’, or ‘uni-verse’ that you create each and every day of your life. By starting your day with thefollowing steps, you will daily remind yourself of the greater good in the scheme of all things and minimize any selfish desires that don’t integrate into the ‘whole’ of life. These steps show us how to set the tone for our day and purge ourselves of selfish tendencies:
Alignment - Each and every day I align myself with my Divine purpose in Divine order and carry out Divine will into my world by loving and respecting myself and others no matter what circumstances arise.
Interaction - When interacting with others I speak the truth and relay the facts no matter how I feel at the moment in order to edify all of humankind.
Guidance - I act on the guidance of the Most High by doing what I know is right and decent, assisting others in finding their light and being kind and loving to all.
Sharing - I daily share Divine love for myself and others by making my well-being a priority and sharing my talents and abilities to those in need.
Maintaining - I take full responsibility for my actions and maintain truth and honesty in all of my endeavors, communications and expressions.
Alignment allows us to clearly see where we are in relation to where we want to be. If our goal is obscure by our beliefs, disillusionment or lack of conviction, we need to align ourselves with whom and what we truly are. Being clear on our Divine purpose allows us to see opportunities to appropriately act in Divine order.
Interaction is something that most of us experience every day. Whether we experience real or virtual people, we are interacting with their words, actions and behaviors. They have an effect upon whom and what we are and it is our choice to allow that effect to alter us or not. Our feelings react to these interactions but our subsequent thoughts as a result of our interactions need to be proactive and based on the truth of what is revealed in order to positively contribute to the mutual growth andexpansion of all.
Guidance is either what our lower ego self tells us we ‘must’ do or what our higher ‘spiritual’ self reveals. Our ego ‘guides’ us based on the securing of our self-survival at all costs and our inner Spirit of God guides us into securing what is the best for all concerned. Spiritual guidance promotes sharing love and providing assistance to all of those in need whereas egotistical guidance ALWAYS promotes ‘what’s in it for me’.
Sharing is the process of action that allows us to contribute to the well-being of others, and ultimately ourselves. It is taking what we have been blessed with (our talents and abilities) and using it to better the circumstances for all of us. It is stepping out into the world and giving of ourselves to grow and expand the conditions and happiness for all of us.
Maintaining is recognizing what works and what doesn’t, discharging what doesn’t work and utilizing what does work. It is being responsible for your actions and making the steps necessary to continue the flow of good to all. It requires being able to clearly see the truth, being honest about the results of everyone’s actions and communicating this unfettered by the ego’s desire to embellish what has happened and put itself in a favorable light. It is a consistency between understanding your Divine purpose and how you express that purpose in Divine order and in accordance with Divine will.
By aligning yourself with your Divine purpose in Divine order you become more in tune with your interactions in your environment, By listening to the inner guidance of the Divine you will encounter more and more opportunities to share your blessings with others and it will ultimately allow you to understand how to maintain an ongoing state of inner happiness each and every day of your life. Be true to whom and what you are and all that you Divinely desire will be added unto, pressed down and running over in universal abundance. ~Dean A. Banks, D.D. (Spirituality Guidance Channel)
