Forty Days of Light: Day Thirty-Two Meditation

We live in a world of rules. Do this. Don't do that. Many of us are terrified to step out of line for fear of punishment. The question we need to ask ourselves is this: do we really need the rules? I hear so many of you now saying, "Of course we need rules! If we didn't have rules, all hell would break loose!" I'm not convinced. You see, I have come to believe that rules are simply a way for those who wish to control others to enslave others. I'm not in total disregard of the rules. I just don't want to be limited by them.

In this lifetime, I have learned that some situations don't fit the rules (no matter how hard you try to make them fit). How do you know when this is true? You know because you are working way too hard. You're tired. You're frustrated. You feel like you're in the bottom of the pit with no way out. Life is not meant to be this way. It is meant to flow. Life is supposed to allow you to use your talents and gifts for the benefit of yourself and the world.

How does this all this relate to the rules? Rules relate to our cognitive minds. Our minds are what retain knowledge of our experiences. It is our minds that tell us not to touch fire or take something that belongs to someone else for fear of the consequences. Our minds are designed to protect us from harmful situations. Rules and laws are those constructs our minds tell us we need to get along in society.

It is only by following the guidance of our hearts--that place inside us where we are connected to God and the Universe--that we become unlimited beings. Our hearts are what guide us to what feels right. Our hearts are places of knowing--psychic, intuitive, spontaneous. When we function from the heart (instead of from the rules/mind), we function from a knowing that benefits both the individual and the whole. There is no need for limiting rules when you function fully from the heart because you do no harm to yourself or others! You are free to be the unlimited and powerful being you were created to be!

Stop following the rules and begin to follow the guidance of perfection--the guidance of the heart!

Today's Prayer For Light:
Source of power and expansion,
We desire to understand you and ourselves so completely we are able to fully function from the heart. We know that it is connection to you that enables us to live the unlimited life we were created to live! Open our eyes that we may see all those opportunities which enable us to function from our inner knowing--our hearts--so we may BE our highest selves.
