The journey within is not a journey at all. A journey is traveling from one place to another or from one stage of existence to another. Growth and expansion is perceived as a journey by us because our focus is mostly outward, when in truth, we truly don’t grow and expand until we turn inward.
The perception of movement is predicated on our consciousness of change. We experience reactions to our environments and acclimate ourselves to their results without challenging their premises. Knowing where things come from requires an inward journey to source. It is removing our minds and hearts fromthe chaos and tension of our external perceptions and opening the door inward toward peace and joy in our inner being.
It is a proactive step that requires us to ‘faith” our way through complete trust in the Divine. It is a complete abandonment of the perceived ego’s control over our self-survival. It is the final step in allowing Divine order to manifest the fulfillment of our Divine purpose. It is always available to us in every moment of our lives.
We need not ‘journey’ there; just let go and allow. It’s really that simple. It is our ego that convinces us that it is harder than that. Shut off the chatter and listen to the still small voice of the Spirit ofGod. There is no deception there and no journey is required. It is instantaneous and always present. Open the door inward and experience the nurturing presence of the Divine in every breath you take. Feel each moment as eternity.
Just as the within each drop there is the essence of the ocean, within each moment is the essence of eternity. Time is a relative construct based on motion in a direction. Motion comes from aggregate gasses generating heat and ultimately gravity. Creation is a process of the culmination of that which we cannot perceive becoming that which we can perceive. In each moment is the joy of Creation.
This moment is all we truly have. Breathe in the environment and breathe out love. It is your choice moment to moment. Choose to affect your life with love and not be affected by the perceived turmoil of existence. Maintain your peace at all costs and thrive in your expressions. Be diligent in proacting and not reacting. Allow the guidance of spirit to align you with Divine order. Have a beautiful and productive day! ~Dean A. Banks, D.D. (Spirituality Guidance Channel)
