I did the Morning Offering and then got myself ready for the day. Today the 102 quote comes from Chapter Seven and the section on flashes of insight:

“Flashes of Insight”, Higher Feelings and Intuition—like artists

Your people are locked in the darkness of manifestation, and so are you, yet within you there is light immeasurable. To be able to find and trust the intuitions which move from the light to the mind is most helpful, for one truly does not ever know when one is serving, one merely attempts such, and leaves the outcome in the hands of the one to whom the gift has been given, for it matters not to the giver if the gift is appreciated or not, but only if the gift is given freely and gladly without the nagging expectation of being paid back. Q’uo, December 10, 1989

Now we come to the intuitive way of making choices. In our attempts to be of service to others we are most likely to begin with an intellectual analysis of who has asked for our service and how our service might be given. If it should be that we have no definitive answer for this question, then it is that we are wise to consult our deeper self, our deeper mind, our intuition. In the quote above, Q’uo said that in our daily lives we are all “locked in the darkness of manifestation.” That suggests that the veil of forgetting is producing an inability in many instances for our choice-making to be accurate no matter how much analysis we may apply. We need a way to penetrate that veil of forgetting. Fortunately, we seem to have that way within our being.

Q’uo then said that we do have an immeasurable light within the heart of our being that can provide illumination in the form of intuition that will give us the direction in which to go. When those intuitive flashes of inspiration come into our minds we do well to trust these hunches and offer our service without any conditions. We can never know for sure whether the service will be appreciated. All we can know is that our inner knowing has spoken; we have given freely; and all is well.

At another time Q’uo gave a slightly different take on how our intuition can function to help us make choices:

There is an enormous storehouse of information which cannot ever be known in the proper sense of that word. It cannot be scientifically or objectively known. Yet this source of information is extremely helpful in the making of decisions. It is a source of information used extensively and almost to the exclusion of any other source by those in beginning fourth density. It is that portion of the mind found in the subconscious, according to your terminology, and described in various ways by those among your people who understand the great well of knowledge which intuition may offer. The intuitive faculties, the heart, this instrument would say the gut, the stomach of the mind, that which feels rather than thinks, is, when shallow and prurient feelings are removed from the mix, an extremely useful and helpful faculty for the making of choices. Q’uo, May 3, 1987

Apparently, each of us has what Q’uo called an “enormous storehouse of information” within us that is not really able to be fathomed by the conscious, rational mind. It can’t be known via science nor can it be known in an objective sense. It is part of our great subconscious mind, that mind beyond the veil, that mind that has connections to the planetary mind and the cosmic mind. Q’uo even suggested that it is the mind that is more well known and used in the fourth density. Because of its connection to the more advanced levels of consciousness which partake in the unity of the creation, decisions that are made when we seek our deepest intuitive faculties are more likely to be helpful to achieve our goals and desires upon our spiritual journeys. Of course, Q’uo also reminded us that there can be some small distortions in the way of “shallow and prurient feelings” that may need to be removed from the overall message of the intuition. This could be seen as a kind of static on the line that would not change the overall message.

This morning I took my speed walk with a cane, as my surgeon recommended, and I was glad to be able to cover a mile and a quarter in a reasonable amount of time. Then I did my stretching exercises for only the second time since my surgery, and I think these exercises are also helping my right hip and thigh to regain some flexibility. Then I took a shower before running errands to pick up supplements at the Rainbow Blossom Health Food Store, a couple of sandwiches at Panera Bread, some cat food at Feeder’s Supply, and some food for myself at Paul’s Fruit Market.

From A Book of Days, channeled by Carla L. Rueckert:

November 22

Ask For The Spirit Of Love

I am the spirit of the living God. I greet you in the consciousness of that great name which is love. I am of the vibration of the consciousness of love which comforts this child.

As you perceive, more and more, the depth of lack of glad understanding which you express with regard to the consciousness of love, you may naturally become disheartened. Although it was never intended that difficulties dishearten the seeker, it is necessary, in order to appreciate love’s consciousness, that perceptions be had of the great dynamic between the action of the spirit of love and the substance upon which that action takes place.

For there is much within the consciousness that is experienced by sons of God upon the Earth which is dead to all consciousness of love. And thus the redemption of the action of love upon this consciousness is all the more remarkable.

Remember that those who do not ask for the spirit of love to come upon them shall not experience a substantial amount of grace. For even were spiritual grace to be given by another who prays for you, unless you gladly receive this grace, it shall not endure. Seek always, then, the redemption of that which is dead and do not mourn your iniquity fruitlessly.

May the consciousness of love keep you in peace, now and always. Amen.

I said the prayer at the Gaia Meditation tonight:

We come in the name of Love and open our hearts, our minds, and our souls to send love, light, and healing energies to Mother Earth as she brings forth a New Earth in fourth density. We ask that the infinite love, light, and healing energies of the One Infinite Creator heal the heart of each soul in pain on Earth tonight. May all souls on Earth feel our love, light, and healing energies in their hearts, in their minds, and in their souls. Amen.
