I am working to make it to the first group, that seems like the place to be if any of these groups actually exist. . .currently, I think I am vacillating between Group 1 & 2, unfortunately more often in 2. I decided that I will start woring on this in a micro sense. As I have mentioned, I have a little boy and he loves cars. One of his favorite cars is one that you pull back and release and it will start driving off in the direction that it is pointed. Thing is, it often gets off course and I have to walk beside it and pick it up and point it back on it's course to get where I originally pointed it. I think that is now what I am going to try to do with myself. In the morning when I meditate, I will set a definite goal (point myself in a direction I wish to go) and I will constantly keep a check on myself through the day and if I am not on course, I will just redirect my thoughts and actions to get back on course.
The word "action" actually brought up another thought from the Bhagavad Gita that has been marinating in my mind. It says that we are all acting all the time. Intellectually, I know this, but it is good for me to be reminded. The truth is, I spend a lot of energy every day as I suspect, most do. If I just focus this energy, I know that I can be wildly successful.
So calling up thoughts from a previous meditation, the fact that
1) my goals are God's goals so I do not have to accomplish everything and have every detail figured out before I start;
2. I Am always in action;
3. I Am on God's team; and
4. I just need to keep correcting my course.
If I can If I just keep correcting my course when I am off, know that I am always acting and focus the action, and know that I am on God's team serving God such that I keep going taking even the smallest step, doing my part, and trusting that God will take care of what seems overwhelming or unknowable, then I am on my way, right. . . .
Baby steps first I guess. When I wake up tomorrow, I will set my goal for the day and let you know how it goes.
Love and light, C
