Devotional Service

What is your number 1 thought on a daily basis?

Does it change day on day, week on week or can you identify one main concern/ dominant thought/ feeling that you’ve had a while?

What you feel and think affects your reality, the environment around you and the people close to you. Your dominant thought affects how you feel, influences your perspective of the world and even more interestingly draws your future to you!

Accepted and agreed within the field of quantum physics is that parallel realities co-exist, and that one moves between parallel realities usually completely unaware. If this is the case, which reality would you like to living in?

It was a major alarm bell moment when I first realised that I was affecting my reality with my thoughts and that I could alter my reality through choosing which thoughts to ignore and which to focus on.

In that moment, I released attachment to money, income, job, home etc. and chose to focus instead on a state of peace and happiness. At that time I had a good income etc. but not the peace and happiness so I reckoned that if I got that state of being right, then everything else would by default be good!

My relationship with peace and happiness has grown deeply since and I am grateful for this simple realisation that has dramatically changed my path over the past 15 years. 

More recently this year of 2018, the focus has further evolved. It was triggered by a workshop I was developing called, Invite a Miracle In!

In the run up to the workshop, one had to list the top 10 miracles they would like to invite into their life, and then sit with this list for a week editing it as more clarity arose. 

I edited my list a few times and realised clearly over a few days that the one thing more than anything I was inviting in, was Bhakti Yoga consciousness 24/7!

This translates as devotional service, which for I means, being aware of the divine as I go through my day. This my number 1 relationship and focus, the feeling of which flows into everything I think, say and do. The visual I get is seeing the Divine as the top of the triangle, top of the pyramid, the light of which permeates all and after and from this, the energy flows through everything.

The great gift. 

Is to remember the Divine as Number 1 rather than any person, place or thing and that remembering the divine gives stability and strength to life regardless of circumstances. Everything is the material word including people and things will come and go and thus can cause suffering!  It is recognised that putting a person on a pedestal or overly focusing on a job or other material possession will deliver suffereing!  

This is written about in many spiritual texts that all things in the material world, people, places, things are temporary and will come and go.  In the Bible it says, 

‘Unless the Lord built it, they labour in vain that build it.’

Buddha reminds us also that,  

‘Attachment is the cause of all suffering.’

Attachment to anything other than the creator/ goods energy leads to distress, as everything is temporary and will naturally come and go. 

In the Bhagvad Gita, Krishna tells us that to remain peaceful regardless of what we consider good or bad happening in our lives is a most wise and elevated state, and a way to do this is to focus upon devotional service to Krishna or what some might like to call God, Source, Creator, Krishna, Great Mother, love or life.  

To focus on the divine gives a most uplifting feeling that brings one into the now where nothing needs to change. In this state we are inspired and guided moment by moment. The feeling also relates to the feeling of Delight which we work with in the Soul’s Goals; both a high frequency bridge to the divine. A welcomed break from the monotony of worry and fear (!) and a step into trust, and oneness with the great creator. 

To focus on the divine and devotional service 24/7 may not be as easy as clicking our fingers but it does start with awareness, feeling into it and choice and we all have that power right here right now.  I’m interested in finding out if this is something that interests you? How does it feel? 

Going forward

I may not remember 24/7! However I am enjoying the ease, grace, peace and at times fearlessness that this is bringing.. Some day I may be thoughtless! But for now I am young, and happy with the dominant thought ‘devotional service’ and what it inspires! 

To finish up, I would simply encourage 1 thing here; write down your top 10 miracles /wishes that you would like to experience and give it a week to 10 days and see then what is number 1.  If this feels delightful, of purpose to this world and resonates with your heart, write it down somewhere and look at it regularly. You might just grow that direction! You are a purposeful co-creator.

Love, peace, laughter, hugs and devotional service consciusness brothers and sisters!

Xx
