1 Cor. 2:9. says “…the heart of man has not conceived the things which God has prepared for those who love Him”. The key phrase I believe is “for those who love Him”. Here is that word love again. It keeps coming up again and again in scripture, teachings from ancient wisdom sources and from our current spiritual writers and thinkers such as Charles and Myrtle Fillmore, A Course in Miracles, A Course of Love, and a myriad of authors and speakers.
Paul says in Eph. 4:23, “…be renewed in the spirit of your mind”. He goes on farther in the chapter to say, “…Let all bitterness, wrath, anger, clamor and evil speaking be put away from you.” I believe he is telling us that when we eliminate these non-productive thoughts from our lives, we are then capable of expressing love.
Divinity is all around us: the homes we live in, the cars we drive, the people we meet, the landscapes we see, the food we eat, the job we have and everything we experience is an expression of God.
The mind wants to trick us and have us disparage all of these wonderful expressions of God by complaining, criticizing, and condemning these things. By doing this, we actually create the lifestyle that we are complaining about.
The mind needs to be influenced by the heart where love dwells. Going back to the ideas of love in 1 Cor. 2:9, our blessings come when we love God. And God is right in front of us (and behind us and in us) all the time. Loving all aspects of Divinity is the message I see this week. No matter who, what or how Divinity shows up in our awareness, God is there.
I Love you...
