The Twenty First Day to Begin Anew

Yes, we have completed 21 days, however,

my

0105131209a

to

encourage

you

upon this soul journey

does not end

upon this 21st day

!

No,

please know

that I am always here

&

that

thoughts

regarding

0104130857

can

&

will

always be found here

.

This is my calling.

This is my purpose.

It is such an honor to glorify God in this way.

***

In this moment of time.

This sacred moment called now,

it is so easy to recognize that

God.

Good

is

ALL

there

is

.

God is in, around and through me.

God is in, around and through each One.

Right  here.

Right now.

To rest in this Kingdom of God.

This Kingdom of Grace

To Begin Anew

brings a peace that passeth all understanding.

To rest in this Oneness

with the Creator.

the orchestrator

of this perfect Universe

is a gift of Grace indeed.

Whole heartedly, I  accept this gift.

Whole heartedly, I choose to display this gift

in all thoughts,words & deeds.

Glorifying God as I alone can do.

Fulfilling the purpose that I am.

I give thanks for this infinite Gift of Grace

that brings harmony not only into my life

but into the lives of  so many others, too.

I continue to souljourn onward

expanding this awareness

of

the

Omnipotence.

the

Omnipresence.

the

Omniscience

that

eternally

guides

governs

&

guards

me.

This is the Truth.

The Truth that fills my soul with gratitude.

With freedom.

With

Grace

&

so

it

is

.

***

“Turn your eyes upon Jesus. Look full in His wonderful face. And the things of this world will grow strangely dim. In the light of His glory & grace.”

By turning your eyes upon the  Truth of your Soul,

by  experiencing God.

Feeling the Presence of God.

Allowing it to permeate every fiber of your BEing

the world will grow

strangely

dim

&

the Light

will

lead

you

} infinitely {

to

glory

&

grace

.

***

If you take but one thing away from this series,

Souljourner,

take this:

The necessity of

 Practicing the Presence of God

.

When you do this,

all

things

other

than

this

{all false beliefs}

{all lack & limitation}

{all that is holding you back from experiencing Oneness with God}

WILL

fade

away

&.

all that

will be left

is

all

that

you

need

.

God

Alone

.

Depend Upon Him

Only

Him

.

***

Each One

such a glorious reflection of the One

that is within each One

awaiting recognition.

Realization

of the

Power

&

Presence.

The

infinite

wisdom

that

is

our

Truth

.

That

is

our

sufficiency

.

Alone

.

As

the  journey continues

{ever lastingly}

unfolding

with

increased

  awareness

lives

change

&

change

others

.

Allowing this Divine Perfect Pattern

to

unfold

is

Grace

&

is

found

as each One chooses to

Begin Anew

.

It

is

so

&

I am thankful

&

so

it

is

Thank you for sharing this journey with me.

You delight my soul.

I am grateful.

PmB

On the Twentieth Day to Begin Anew

Only one more day on this pathway with you,

Souljourner,

&

what

a

glorious

journey it has been

!

My heart is filled with thankfulness for ALL that I have seen unfold.

The journey we have been upon, reminds me of this:

You.

In the Garden.

#2 work in progress  1

You have tended

your

Garden

to

Begin Anew.

You have dug up

that which no longer serves you.

You have prepared the soil of your soul

&

now

see

that which God has all-ways desired you to see.

His

Glory

&

Wonder

{as Father for one Beloved One}

has

broken through the soil.

O’ the joy found, watching this Garden grow!

***

This Garden of your Soul

is not unlike the flower garden you so love.

In order to maintain the

beauty & majesty

found

within

the

0104130857

you must tend to the soil of your soul.

You must continue to

practice

the

Presence

of

God

.

You will not continuously experience the Kingdom,

unless

you

PRACTICE DAILY

.

Period

.

It need not be hours upon time.

It can be minutes.

But it must

BE

a

part of your life.

You

 cannot

KNOW GOD

as

the

One

Power

&

Presence

Intelligence

within

you

without

Practicing the Presence

***

I am so thankful for this opportunity to commune with you,

Beloved One.

I take this time to recognize

to

realize,

that the One & Only Power planting life into each and every seed,

is the One & Only Power guiding, governing you & me.

I allow the magnitude of this Truth

to fill my very Soul.

To permeate my BEing.

I am One with the One

&

it is in

this

Oneness

this

Knowingness

that

I

rest

{ Feeling this Power. This Presence. Take this time to nurture this seed of Truth }

Thank you for this certainty, for this majesty, that I feel in my Soul.

This journey to Begin Anew has allowed me to see, to feel, that which I have longed  for since the beginning of time.

It is my Truth.

It is the one & only way that I can glorify you.

It is so.

&

So it is.

*

Whatever we accept is our belief.

{ Whatever seed we plant we manifest }

Take your God, as Father for Sarah, into meditation.

This is your awareness.

Your

consciousness

of

God.

Your seed.

This is your Truth of BEing.

This is your experience of God.

This is your garden of expression.

Is this where you want to BE?

Is the God you want to know?

Is this the life, the garden, that  expresses your soul?

***

YOUR BELIEFS ARE SHAPING THIS MOMENT OF TIME

&

CREATING THE NEXT MOMENT

.

 CONTINUE  LOOKING INTO YOUR BELIEFS AFTER OUR JOURNEY IS OVER.

CONTINUE EXPANDING YOUR AWARENESS OF YOUR RELATIONSHIP WITH GOD.

As you know,

these beliefs are formulating each step of your journey.

BE TRUE TO THINE SELF

.

Dig

Deeply

.

Reap

Regally

.

Accept your Divinity.

Your Truth.

Thereby

accepting

your

Oneness

with

the

One

***

My heart is filled with delight,

O’ Beloved One,

as I reflect upon this souljourney you have guided each one through.

In this Oneness with you

peace, love & joy

bloom

.

Thank you for the tender nourishment that is found within you alone.

You.

The Omnipotent Soil of the Soul.

It is so.

so it is.

Beauty.

Majesty.

Peace.

Poise.

Abundance.

Wisdom.

Love

For

ALL

Within

ALL

*

Thank you,

Infinite One

for this Gift of Grace

which I accept

as

I

Begin

Anew

.

For this beauty.

This majesty.

This peace & poise

That I am.

Thank you for the abundance

that is mine

as

I

rest

in

this

knowingness

of

who

you

are

.

My eyes no longer see you sitting grandly in the sky

My soul knows you are evermore nigh

{Take time to abide in this Presence of God right where you are}

It is in this

full-ness

of

God

that

I

abide.

Grace is my sufficiency.

My Source.

My

Supply

A

very

thankful

heart

have

I

!

&

so it is

!

Consider

this:

Seek ye first the kingdom of God,

and his righteousness:

and all these things shall be added unto you.

Matthew 6:33

Feeling the Power & Presence of this Kingdom

allow the significance of focusing your eyes upon God alone

to fill your soul.

Journal how it feels to have your home within this Kingdom.

Do you see how there are many mansions here but no servants?

No servants because we are all One with the One.

Only personal responsibility.

Only the increasing,

expanding

AWARENESS

of

God

as

the

SOURCE

of

ALL

**

This is how I do it:

Before stepping foot into

“the world”

I consciously make my connection with

“THE KINGDOM”

With

God

.

It is as much a part of me as my daily meditation is.

I encourage you to do the same.

Before your feet touch the ground by your bedside,

connect with God

and

watch

the

glory

of

your

day

unfold

.

You’ll

be

entering

into

the

mansions

untold
!

***

Grateful,

beyond words

for this Grace that is mine.

Grateful,

beyond words

for this ever increasing awareness of the Divine.

Walking within this kingdom

every moment of the Day.

Needing only to  remember

the One Power &  Presence at play.

Grace

my

sufficiency.

So full of

God’s

Glory

!

Grace

my

sufficiency.

My

infinite

story

In love.

So it is

On this Eighteenth Day to Begin Anew

Resting

Souljourner

?

This is my desire for you.

To rest in this place of Grace

wherein

ALL

sufficiency

is

known

*

Beloved One.

The

One

Power.

The

One

Presence.

The

One

Substance.

The

One

Source.

The

One

&

Only

Power & Presence

that

 I am One with.

I

rest

in

Thee

.

I breathe into this Presence!

*

Infinitely

in

around

&

through

me

*

I breathe into this  Power!

*

Infinitely

sustaining  me

I breathe  into this God Substance!

Infinitely

as

me

Doing

so

With

ease

With

Grace

I am One with the eternal Substance called God!

I rest in this place

{ This is your time. Rest now in this peace-full place}

Thank you

Beloved

One

for this

Power & Presence that you alone are.

Thank you for this awareness

this

consciousness

that is

ever expanding in my soul.

That leads me

from all illusion

To the conclusion

that All that is needed

is

to

rest

in

thee

!

This is so,

Souljourner,

&

so

it is

*

“Your Truth”

is what  I invite you to reflect upon today.

Each One of us sees, feels, the Power &  Presence of God

in our own unique way.

We are, after all, individualized expressions of the One.

Each One

with an insight

{ with Truth}

that is needed in this world today.

It is your calling to SEE this Godness within you

because this is your Divine purpose for BEing here now.

How can God express but through each of our individualized souls?

Yes, the beauty of God is seen throughout nature,

{explicitly}

!

May

our natures

be as clear a reflection of that beauty

&

 majesty that nature is.

The only way that this can transpire, however,

is when  we empty ourselves of the false ego

&

 embrace the Power.

The presence.

Within.

It is time

for you to take responsibility

To

Embrace

YOUR

TRUTH

.

Embrace

YOUR
PURPOSE

.

Through Oneness.

In

Grace

{Take these thoughts into meditation. Become AWARE of your Truth of BEing}

*

We see the perfect orchestration of nature as we watch the sun rise every morning

view it in the high sky at noon

&

follow

it’s setting upon the farthest horizon.

Our free will has blocked us from accepting this Divine orchestration

 within our individualized lives.

Each element in nature serves a divine purpose.

So do we.

Our lives are so intricately interwoven,

so

delicately refined,

yet

we brutally attach this nature in others and in ourselves.

Relying upon what the mind knows.

Not what the Divine knows.

We need to come back

to

Eden

We need to rest

in our individualized Truths

which

ALL

work

together

for

GOOD

For

God

*

We need to listen to the call.

We need to accept responsibility

and create the perfect world order that is intended.

It is up to no one but ourselves.

Look within.

Become

best

friends

with

this

Perfect

Power

&

Presence

whose

only

desire

is for you to glorify this planet with

 Grace

*

Journal about your Truth.

Listen to what you already know.

Your call  has been calling you infinitely.

It will continue to call

until

you

answer

.

Until you do what you know you are here to do.

Be one with God, Souljourner.

It is such an honorable  place to abide.

It is full of such wonder.

Practice

Grace

***

During this past year I experienced being

“True to thine own self”

as

never

before.

 I had joyfully been studying to become a Practitioner of Prayer: a spiritual counselor.

I could see myself , I could feel myself serving in this capacity.

I found great joy studying, probing, writing, learning , sharing my passion for Spirit.

In one day, that all changed.

I was invited to stand firm to my Truth.

In that moment, my choice to feel the Omnipresence within me, to listen to the Omniscience  speaking through me,

and to assert the Omnipotence supporting me

changed my life

placing me firmly upon the  path  that was chosen for me from the beginning of time.

LISTEN

Souljourner

to

your

Soul.

BE come

as a child,

let go of all that you have been led to believe about  duality.

There is not God &  Something else.

Whether that  something else  is illness, loneliness,  lack.

There is ONLY God.

When you turn away from the illusion of anything that is not as God is,

and place your focus upon God alone,

you will see the miraculous.

You will witness what life looks like when you allow God to ordain what is to Be.

You are part of this intricate universe.

You have much work to do but you cannot answer the call from the ego self.

You can only do what is intended

when you are

guided.

guarded.

governed.

by

the

One

!

***

&

it is in

this

ONE

that

I

put all my trust.

It is in this One

that

I

rest

knowing

that as I have allowed my limited self  to transcend into my true self

I am about my Fathers business

&

ALL

is

WELL

.

All

is

well with my soul

I live my Truth

God’s Truth individualized as me

&

so

it

is

.

Beloved

Souljourner.

Original in Divine Nature.

Are

you

experiencing

the

majesty

of

this

Truth

?

Are

you

experiencing

the

peace

found

in

this

Grace

?

In this

Beginning Anew

Now,

consider how this realization is touching the world.

The world

?

Yes,

the

world

One

Presence.

One

Power.

One

Substance.

One

Source.

One

God

&

I

am

One

with

this

One

I take a few moments to breathe in this Truth.

I am One.

Not two

but

one

with

this

almighty

One.

Where

I

Am

,

God

is.

Right here.

Right

now.

The Power & Presence of God is in, around and through me.

This Power & Presence is not mine alone,

No.  This Power & Presence is the Truth of Being of every human being on this planet.

If I am One with the Father

{and I am}

&

each and  every one is One with the Father

{ and they are }

this

means

WE

 are

all

O N E

!

visualize (1)

{ Meditate upon this Oneness with All } 

I celebrate

this Oneness with God.

I celebrate the beauty and majesty found within each one on this planet.

There is no-thing to  separate  me from  my fellow man.

We are all as originally created.

Divine.

I

choose

to

see

this

divinity

this

dignity

in each one.

There is no-thing other than this.

This is where peace is found.

Not for me alone

but

For the world.

It is so

&

so it is

*

“Every time that we consciously remember that the only life there is on earth is the life of God,

we are helping to allay fear, we are helping to restore the peace that passes understanding'”

Joel Goldsmith

Feel this incredible Oneness with each one on this planet & beyond if you choose.

If your desire is to increase this awareness,

ask

.

You

shall

receive

*

Are you recognizing the impact that your choice to live in Grace,

to Begin Anew,

 is making upon the world?

Do recognize this.

As you abide in the Kingdom of Grace,

you are filled with  all of God’s qualities:

peace.

wisdom.

power.

love.

strength.

These qualities come forth through you  as radiantly as morning sunbeams.

The young mother in Syria crying out to God, feels this recognition that it is your Soul.

She is comforted by this pure awareness.

This conscious Oneness that you have sanctified with God.

You are healing the world,  Souljourner,

as you make this choice to live in  Grace.

You are that instrument of peace.

You offer music to the souls of others by allowing God’s melody to be played through you.

Consider this Truth.

Take Responsibility.

Make the choice to live in Grace.

*

Would you like to hear my story regarding this?

Oneness with God was a Truth that I was able to embody without a lot of thought.

Oneness with my fellow-man did not resonate as deeply.

Yes, I could see the God in each one but there was still a separation between us.

An example:

Two years ago,  a dear teacher of mine was making her transition into the next glorious state.

One of my dearest friends, who grew up Hindu, said,

“think of all the people in the hospital that are being touched by our prayers for Rev. Cay”

{ think  I  did }

because  I truly had not thought of that before.

Penny sees Oneness like no one else I know.

We have talked about it  often and  have wondered if it is  because she did not grow up with thoughts of duality that are found within  our religious culture.

I love that Penny  sees  what God desires us to see without effort.

I love that Penny KNOWS that we truly are all One with the One

and

as

we

pray

for

one

we

pray

for

all.

THERE IS NO SEPARATION

!

I

love

this

&

invite you to look into this Truth a bit deeper, too.

***

Thank you Beloved One for this perfect Universe that is ours.

Thank you for the awareness that I have that the Truth of Being for each one of us is

to abide in Grace.

I love knowing that this Grace is not mine alone.

I love knowing that the world is being touch by this peace that I abide within.

I give thanks for Being this divine vessel that I am.

Purposely

Glorifying

You

&

so

it

is

.

P.S.

I give thanks for Penny,  too.

“You are cherished.” {A God Song}

It’s Five Minute Friday!

You really should go to:

http://lisajobaker.com

&

sing the song of community

with

us

!

intuition (1)

I hear the music of my soul.

 I hear,

the lover of this soul,

gently singing,

“You are cherished”

&

each note of this song

which comes from

the

One Source of All

God

resonates so true to me

.

This infinite song has become clearer & clearer as the years have gone by.

BEing cherished is not an emotion coming from vanity.

As a matter of fact,

wouldn’t I be acting in vain

if I did not accept the Truth of who I AM?

If I did not accept this expression that God

cherishes

{me}

If I did not cherish expressing my Divine Nature

as only

I

can

do

to

glorify

Him

???

So,

yes.

Gently.

Lovingly.

I keep rhythm with this song of my soul.

I am cherished

&

you

know

what

?

So are

YOU

!
