What is Right Action

 

What is “Right” Action?

The synergistic events of my day are defining it.  I found a “God Note” today I jotted down some weeks ago as I was de-cluttering the kitchen counter-top.  A “God Note” is a spontaneous, inspired thought; the kind that show up randomly when you least expect it.   Sometimes they arrive in dreams and sometimes during waking hours, when my mind is free enough to hear them (I was washing dishes this time).  This thought followed on the heels of a passionate conversation with a friend (you know what they say about politics and religion…).  We were debating what “right action” is, in these seemingly very chaotic, stressful times.  It may even seem we are backsliding today.  We are not.  What is still bubbling under the surface is only coming into the light to be seen.  The darkness cannot survive the light.  I digress…

The note was this:

Right action, any action can be energetic, physical or both.  For instance, thoughts and prayers are energetic action.  The thought cannot be seen, but the results are made manifest.   Some people “act” more energetically (prayer warriors, lightworkers, etc.) and some have more physical roles.  Both are profoundly important for creation.

Physical action is always born of thought, even if it is bubbling under the surface of our unconscious (in the dark).

Every creation (manifestation) begins with a thought, just as we are a thought of our Creator.

“Right Action” is born of loving thought.  Loving thoughts and actions are heart-based and honor the oneness that we are, regardless of circumstance.

Then I opened this today from Renaissance Unity:

Today’s Meditation

Dear God,

I deeply desire that love guide my life.

Love for myself, the people around me and this planet.

Love that is beyond words or thoughts, beyond intellectualizing.

You are the source of me, the fountain of my life.

May this core of love expand until only love remains.

Express yourself fully, in and through me.

And, so it is – Amen

Rev. Kelly

 

And, then I opened another email from Rev. Karen at Unity on Greenville.  This verse was at the bottom:

“Let me give you a new command:  Love one another.  In the same way I loved you, you love one another.  This is how everyone will recognize that you are my disciples – when they see the love you have for each other.”  John 13: 34-35

If this is not a clear message, I don’t know what is…

No matter what action we take – Let Love lead.

 

 

The Un-Digested Seed

The un-digested seed

The seed of truth connects with the “Truth” at the heart center of every human.  When the heart hears Truth it resonates with it.  However, it may be un-digestible to the mind at the time.  When a mind is cluttered with old thoughts and beliefs that have served their purposefulness, there may be no fertile ground left to digest; germinate and sprout new seeds.   The mind can become infertile and stagnant.

I know from the healing work I facilitate that decluttering and detoxifying the body is basic to the physical healing process.  The same is true for the mind.

It behooves us to take stock from time to time to ask questions and sort through what we believe.   Is that belief still true?  Is it serving love?  Is it in alignment with peace, joy, abundance, happiness and love?   If it no longer serves a “good” purpose, then discard it.  Free your mind.

Our viewpoint is filtered through the lenses of our beliefs.

Hanging on to the past holds us hostage and keeps us trapped in non-beneficial cycles.  To change our reality, we must make room for change.

Meditation (the art of being present) is one of the best ways to declutter the mind.   The past does not exist in the present and neither does the future. The present is the quiet, fertile ground for germinating newly planted seeds.

For those who find meditation daunting, may I suggest a super easy and effective way to create more fertile ground.  One Minute Meditation https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=F6eFFCi12v8.  When I first starting meditating in 2011, I set the alarm on my phone to chime every waking hour to remind me to pause and give my breath all my focus.    The breath in itself has the power to clear the mind.  There is a reason we’ve been taught to take a deep breath when we are angry.

Another very effective way to help declutter the mind is to declutter your space.   I have experienced this phenomenon for myself.  I put it to the test back in 2015 with Marie Kondo’s book, “The Life-changing Magic of Tidying Up”, The Japanese art of decluttering and organizing.  Have you ever used house cleaning to destress and quiet your mind?  Makes complete sense now.

By the way, feng shui is very helpful in creating space and flow in your physical and mind space.  Here is a helpful site:  http://www.knowfengshui.com/feng-shui-map-of-your-home/

Truth is constantly being birthed.  This is the evolution of man.   It’s important to maintain that “child-like” sense of wonder that views the world as a playground with infinite possibilities.  Open minds are the “game changers”; moving the world from where we came from to where we are going.

The “un-digested” seed will sprout and grow as each mind de-clutters.  New seeds will germinate.

Here’s to your Love, joy, peace & Abundant Health!
