Gratitude’s Gift

Giving gratitude stills emotional whirlwinds. It harnesses our emotional energy and returns it to a state of equilibrium, ultimately leading to Divine Harmony in our outer reality.

Harmony, energetic equilibrium, is Truth’s reflection. It’s the inherent state of the present moment. Conversely, the chaotic energy of disharmony occurs when we accept a lie in place of the Truth. When we perceive disharmony and complain (a form of attack), we’ve accepted the lie as true, and in doing so we create an emotional whirlwind. Because what we give we receive, when we complain we charge our reality with disruptive energy and create more discordant situations in future present moments, giving us more to complain about.

Gratitude breaks the cycle of complaining that fuels disharmony in our reality. In giving gratitude, we focus our attention on reflections of harmony, turning our mind to Truth. Truth is ever-present, therefore regardless of what we are going through or feeling, there is always something to be grateful for, and in doing so we begin to alter our emotional landscape, which changes reality’s landscape.

Giving gratitude energetically charges our reality with harmonious frequencies, changing its energetic field from disharmony to harmony, manifesting peaceful resolutions. In addition, gratitude multiplies harmonious expressions in our reality, because what we give we receive. So, as we continue to charge our reality with gratitude, we create peaceful future moments. This makes gratitude an ever-present, potent power in our life.

An eternal state of gratitude manifests Divine Harmony, Truth’s reflection. When gratitude is our state of being, we are a peacemaker, through which Divine Harmony is manifested. As creators within the Creator, we are the transducer of the uncreated Truth into the created reality. In order for Truth, which is beyond us, to be expressed through us, our will (the mechanism of our being that directs thought energy into expression), is matured into an extension of the Divine Will, through which Truth is expressed in all its perfection. We become a peacemaker when we lay down our separate self-will, and become an open door to the Divine Will.

In the realm of eternity, a separate self-will doesn’t exist because it suggests there can be something other than Truth. Therefore, we reside in an embryonic state as our will matures into its full stature as one with the Divine Will, in which we can convey Truth into reality. Until then, we stay enfolded in a womb of an altered state of consciousness, a dream.

Through this dream, we witness the effects of a separate self-will, which is essential in the maturation of our perfect, god-like will. We learn a separate self-will is the progenitor of vast limitation and destruction. With a separate self-will, the self functions in separation from Truth so that it operates with an extremely limited awareness darkened by lies. In its great blindness, the self formulates its own concepts of “truth” based on erroneous individualized judgments derived from a limited and incomplete perspective, which it believes is true.

As the self seeks to fulfill its desires through this faulty operating system, it misuses its will and constructs a reality of increasing limitation and destruction. In response to its endless mis-creations, it piles up erroneous judgments that end up imprisoning itself and reality, the opposite of what it believed would happen with a “free-will” for its own use. It creates an illusion of death, the opposite of eternal harmonious growth. Truth and its Divine Harmony remain unexpressed as it can’t be expressed through a mind willing a “counterfeit” truth.

As we begin to spiritually awaken through increasing awareness, our separate self-will, which kept us in a state of disharmony (thus spiritual sleep), is uprooted from our mind, and the perfect governance of Truth, the Divine Will, begins to take root. Through this transition, Truth’s vanguard, gratitude, becomes the conscious act of laying down our self-will, so the Divine Will of Truth is expressed.

As the Divine Will is rooted in our inner being, it establishes Perfect Cause and Perfect Effect in our sphere of reality, which no discord can penetrate. As a result, gratitude becomes an inherent state of our being, so that we continually charge reality with its harmonious frequencies manifesting Divine Harmony’s expression, which includes all the divine attributes, in our outer reality. We become peacemakers.

Through our state of being, Truth shines Divine Harmony into reality, creating true Life and establishing victory over all likeness of death.

“Do all things without complaining and disputing, that you may become blameless and harmless, children of God without fault in the midst of a crooked and perverse generation, among whom you shine as lights in the world.” ~ Philippians 2:14-15

Blessed are the peacemakers,
For they shall be called sons of God.” ~ Matthew 5:9

Meditation of Gratitude


Emotional Freedom

Being a life-giving spirit means our true SELF governs our emotional landscape.

Emotions are the experience of the energetic vibrations that emanate from our beliefs. They are the sensational, active expression of the creative power inherent in our state of being. Whether outwardly expressed or suppressed, emotions reveal what we believe is true, which our reality reflects in endless ways, expected and unexpected. These energetic vibrations shape the structure and substance of reality so that our emotional landscape determines reality’s landscape.

When our state of being is under the governance of a false self, we experience a myriad of emotional whirlwinds. Moments of peace and joy are continually hijacked with disharmonious emotions because the false self exists upon a framework of separation, so true Peace is impossible. The false self is upheld by a framework of erroneous beliefs. For example, the beliefs in helplessness, individualized wills (which is the genesis of fear), and false judgments of ourselves as something other than what God created us to be are ever-present instigators of turbulent emotions, which wreak havoc inwardly and outwardly. As it is within, so it is without.

Through the awareness of our true SELF, our emotional/feeling world begins to be governed by Truth, which is One with the Mighty I Am Presence of God. The true SELF is established upon absolute Truth that resonates in a perpetual state of equilibrium, manifesting changeless Divine Harmony and Peace. As we receive Truth from the Spirit of Truth, our beliefs transform in accordance with our true SELF. Beliefs such as we are powerful in oneness, only the Will of Divine Love exists, and we are the timeless perfection God created us to be, replace our prior beliefs. When we give our belief to the Truth received from the Spirit of Truth, our true SELF governs our state of being and Divine Love fills our emotional landscape, which we experience as peace, joy, contentment, abundance, generosity, gratitude, purity, invincibility, and freedom.

Again, who we believe we are, reality reflects back to us. The present moment is inherently perfect because Truth is ever-present. It is the energetic chaos of false belief stemming from the false self that defiles the present moment. The mind shifts when we no longer accept a false self and instead give our belief to the Self revealed in Truth. Our true SELF’s being creates ever-lasting abundance, peace, vitality and joy. Therefore, Peace (and the other divine attributes) is created through an emotional state of being peace, which shapes the outer reality according to our inner being.

As we awaken to Truth, we experience mixed emotional states as emotions arise according to our true SELF as well as emotions generated by the residual false self. During this metamorphic stage, the Spirit of Truth instructs us to stop looking outwardly, and using reflections of the false self to tell us who we are and what is true, and instead look into the inner sacred looking glass that reflects the true SELF. Through this conscious shift in attention, our emotions cease to be disrupted by disharmony in the outer reality and our mind is given the opportunity to embrace our true Reflection. As long as the outer reality, which reflects a false image, defines who we are and what is true, we stay trapped in the illusionary self’s emotional landscape and corresponding reality.

As we look through the eyes of Truth, we see the illusion for what it is. By looking beyond the illusion to our inherent Peace, our emotional balance returns to a state of equilibrium. We no longer fuel reality with discordant energy, and it transforms into harmonious reflections of our true SELF.

Every discordant feeling presents an opportunity to return our mind to Truth and release the illusion a little bit more. As our emotional world harmonizes to Truth, creation engages in its inherent regenerative properties, returning to its true state of perfection.

As Truth increasingly governs our emotional world, we are set free from the emotional chaos of the false self, leading our mind/body reality to green pastures of abundance and vitality, and the still waters of serenity and harmony, which ultimately creates a reality where there is ever-present Peace and Joy.

The Lord is my shepherd; I shall not want. He makes me to lie down in green pastures; He leads me beside the still waters. He restores my soul; He leads me in the paths of righteousness For His name’s sake. ~ Psalm 23:1-3
