As we meld into the divine Mind, we experience a natural, logical and systematic integration. The divine Mind (mind of Christ) isn’t a spiritualized idea beyond our attainment, but about becoming who we truly are and always have been. It isn’t fantastical or magical, but a real metamorphosis of our mind, giving it ability to process divine thought. It’s growing in soundness of mind through a transformation into the spiritual realm (thought-system) of abundance. Divine thoughts conveyed through this mind are able to translate the reality around us into eternal peace, harmony, and joy.
The source of what we see is our mind.
As an immortal fractal of the divine Mind, our mind is like an open gate to the one divine Mind. In this, we are each the creative consciousness center of reality. True vision comes from the divine Mind and has the ability to transform our reality from things to fear, into a reality of peace and harmony. Vision shapes energy into the reality of forms we experience. What we see begins with what we see within. What we see within defines our thoughts. Our thoughts and the energy they project shape our reality and all our experiences. Thus, true transformation begins with perceiving the Truth which then our thoughts and the beliefs support. Transformation through our thought life is how we engage the divine mind we all share and embrace its power to transform us from the inside out.
Because our thoughts create our reality, other people and situations appear as we inwardly perceive them. They are reflections of our thoughts and thought energy. What we experience does not often appear immediately correlated to our thoughts, but it is a result of thought energy. For example, if we cater to fearful thoughts in one area, we’ll create fearful experiences in other areas. This connection often goes unrecognized to the sleeping mind as it doesn’t clearly see how it is creating its reality. We are the source of the fear energy thus we are the ones creating situations to fear. The reality follows our thoughts. Our reality isn’t separate from us, it is a projection of our minds. By the renewing of our minds, our realty can be greatly altered. If the reality was the cause of our experiences and not our thoughts, we would be in inescapable bondage.
- If we complain (projecting thoughts of dissatisfaction), we continually create situations to complain about.
- If we rush (projecting thoughts of lack of time), we create situations where we never have enough time.
- If we are unforgiving with anyone (projecting thoughts of guilt), we suffer from a poor and degrading image of ourself.
- If we think in lack whether physically, emotionally or spiritually, we experience lack.
- If we hold fearful thoughts, we create fearful situations.
- If we extend hurtful thoughts, we create things that induce hurt.
- If we think we are vulnerable, we create harm and suffering.
- If we condemn, we create reflections that induce more judgment.
- If we have attack thoughts, we create a reality that attacks us.
- If we are dishonest, our reality is dishonest with us.
- If we have a taking mentality, then our reality takes from us.
Mindful Spirit-Led Practice
Our reality and our experiences change through the renewing of our mind. A prayerful, spirit-led practice retrains and reorients our mind to see differently, therefore create a different reality. As we daily sit with the Spirit of Truth, our minds receive divine thoughts. Throughout our day, the Spirit will bring these divine thoughts to our awareness as it retrains our minds according to Truth. As these divine thoughts come to mind, we are able to replace contrary thoughts with Truth.
When we complain about our present moment, it’s because we fear what it might bring. By being lead by the Spirit, we learn to rest in emergence where divine thoughts can be conveyed and experienced rather than harboring fearful thoughts about what we experience or perceive. Initially this rest is difficult because fearful thoughts have owned our mind. Yet, the present moment is where we experience the expressed love of God. When we rest in the present rather than complain, we become consciously aware of God’s love which drives out all fear from our thoughts. When there is no fear in our thoughts, then we will not create anything to fear in our reality.
As the Spirit connects us to the divine Mind, our mind is transformed and able to convey divine thoughts. God’s divine thoughts begin to flow through us, and in this our reality starts to become one of unalterable peace, invulnerability, harmony and joy.
And do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, that you may prove what is that good and acceptable and perfect will of God.
~ Romans 12:2
