Qualities, Truth and Blue Jays

Posted by Whiz on September 21, 2010

So many discoveries and awareness’s unfolding to my thought. I decided to make up a list of right identity qualities that I know are mine as an expression of God.

As I sat and looked at all those qualities I realized that they are all present in the infinitude of One Mind, One Cause, One Creator. Why am I making lists? To highlight them to keep them upper most in my thought.

As I look around and see beauty all around me, I am so grateful. I listen within and hear… I must be more accepting of my innate abilities within as already here, present, now. This Principle of man was dawning upon my thought and unfolding as ideas, qualities, that are not born of persons, but are from God. Yes, we express them, but we don’t invent them.

I then went back over all of the qualities words I had written down, again, listening within, and with a quiet connection with my source, asking myself what do these words really mean?

I thought of the story of the prodigal son, remembering the words the father spoke to the older brother when he expressed jealousy at the father’s special favor and joy with the prodigal’s return, saying to the elder, “son thou art ever with me, all that I have is thine.”

Could it be simply a matter that I too need to “look up, and see….the fields are already white for harvest”? Instead of asking for more of these qualities to be expressed in me, was my Father saying that I needed to “look up”? It’s already mine because as our Father/Mother/God tells us, “All that I have is thine.”

Blue jays have been showing up many, many times recently. I found it interesting to learn from a book called, Animal Speak, that blue jay comes to remind us to “pay attention”, “wake up to your innate abilities”, “no more pretending”.

I realize that there is a yearning to know a dimension of love that I have not been aware of before. I am realizing that it’s showing up for me now. It is actually Love’s own awareness that’s asserting itself in my life.

A writer in a Christian Sentinel magazine shared a testimony of healing of a long-standing ailment. In her testimony, she shared her reading of one of Mary Baker Eddy’s sayings, “No, no, love’s not like that” when told of some human situation going on.

We know that good is made up of beauty, love, harmony, creativity. When we fully realize this truth, we are better able to reject any claim of non-good that tries to show up. We can say to it, “no, no, harmony isn’t like that”, “good isn’t like that.”

The workers at the mint become so familiar with the genuine dollar bills that the counterfeit bills stand out clearly and enables the alert worker to immediately spot the counterfeits, and then reject them. So can we also be better at recognizing the counterfeit thoughts and reject them as we become more familiar with Truth, with good. As we understand the true qualities of goodness, those counterfeit pictures stand out clearly to our thought, and we say “No, no, good’s not like that”, and we simply don’t allow the counterfeit in.

This is how we “stand porter at the door of thought….” and express our higher awareness’s of good and is like a light that bursts through the darkness and moves away from fear.
