Where to Turn? Who to Believe?

 

 

So many outside opinions, forces, and events these days~our minds are swimming in them!  What to think? What to believe? What to do? What not to do? Who to believe?

Wow.

Where to turn?

The answer may surprise you as it is not the ‘typical’ approach for handling today’s issues: It is a question each of us are invited to ask that shows us where to turn.  This question leads directly to the core of our heart where all answers lie:

Do I believe God/The Source-of-All-Love dwells within me?

If the answer is ‘no’, then I guess it makes sense to look outward for the answers to life’s questions. However, by simply questioning the belief that God is only ‘out there’ vs dwelling within me always, opens the door to amazing discoveries and adventures, far beyond imagining. It’s a game changer!

What if it’s true? What if the Creator of worlds and the Grand Lover of all abides within me and is eagerly waiting to share all the wisdom, knowledge, and guidance I desire for a life filled with clarity, harmony, peace, joy, and Love….

What have I got to lose?  (After all, how’s it going so far looking ‘out there’ amid the tumult?)

Am I willing to take the leap to ask the question, what do I believe?

Am I willing to open the door to the possibility of a new answer?

Am I willing to experience a ‘game changer’?

Where to turn?  The answer lies within and it all begins with a question: What do I believe?

Today’s leaping exercise:  This is a jumping off place for you to go within and see what’s there.  Be open as you can as openness leads to new discovery!

The beginning of this new adventure lies in asking, then listening to your answers.   A journal or some preferred writing tool is suggested so you can ‘see’ your responses.  Ask yourself this question: Do I believe God/The Source-of-All-Love dwells within me?  Set a timer for 10 minutes and begin writing.  Do not stop to think or analyze, just write.  When the time frame is complete, slowly read what you’ve written.  Ponder these questions:  Are there any recurring themes? Are there any conditions? Does any sense of self-worth arise from the writing?  What do I believe about myself?  About God/Source?  What feelings are coming forth (example:  fear, regret, hope, eagerness)? Any additional patterns or beliefs you notice?  What does my mind say?  What does my heart say? What do I believe about the question, Do I believe God/The Source of All Love dwells within me?

When you’re ready for part 2, journal these questions: What if it’s true? What if the Creator of worlds and the Grand Lover of all abides within me and is eagerly waiting to share all the wisdom, knowledge, and guidance I desire for a life filled with clarity, harmony, peace, joy, and Love. (When finished with these questions, see above for ‘Ponder these questions’ as you reflect upon your writing.

“I now close the door of the senses; I withdraw all attention from the world. I turn within to the One, the Beautiful, and the Good; here, I dwell with the One beyond time and space; here, I live, move, and dwell in the shadow of the Almighty.  I am free from all fear, from the verdict of the world, and the appearance of things.  I now feel The Presence which is the feeling of the answered prayer, or the presence of my good.  I become that which I contemplate.  I now feel that I am what I want to be; this feeling or awareness is the action of God in me; it is the creative Power.  I give thanks for the joy of the answered prayer and I rest in the silence that “It is done.” -Joseph Murphy, ‘The Miracle Power of Your Mind’ p. 90

Take your leap, relax and enjoy the beauty you’ll discover within! – Joan Kappes
