Here we are. Seeking. Just not satisfied with life as it is?

We want peace, love, joy, and harmony.  And strive, each in our unique ways.  And face our own set of challenges.

When grasping at life, we may overlook that which is at our very core, our very foundation and support — our true nature — our inherently Divine nature.  Most of us fail to recognize the Divine is always present and is our true source of peace, love, joy and harmony.   For some of us, discovering the idea that we may have a Divine nature that is ever-present peace can set us on a new path to align with our Divine nature to bring it forward in our lives.

In order to sincerely seek our Divine nature, we have to rise above our sole focus on life’s challenges and accomplishments, and supplement our focus with an appropriate spiritual path.  We often bring to our spiritual journey the same tools and methods we use to elevate our life circumstances.  But we will find that these tools don’t work very well in attracting the peace and joy of the Divine.

Any effort at control, or strategy, or vigilance can get in the way.  Our spiritual path does require sincerity of intention and commitment, but exerting control or effort is counter-productive.  Waking up to Divine Presence is a process of infinite subtlety and profound surrender.  Control and effort just don’t create the right environment.

And when our path involves difficult and challenging practices, or self-imposed disciplines that cut us off from what we enjoy in life, or we just put so much dedicated time into it, we can become fatigued and discouraged, especially when we don’t get out of it what we hope for.

Whether we seek out a path or not, spiritual growth is our natural evolutionary trajectory.  But we can grow in peace, love, joy, and harmony more substantially when on a spiritual path that aligns us with Divine Reality and prepares us for Divine Grace, the hidden cause of awakening to our Divine nature.

We need to have patience and faith that everything we need for our spiritual journey will be provided. Divine Intelligence is in charge, not us. Our most fruitful spiritual journey is one of “effortlessness” where we let native Divine Intelligence work for us rather than apply effort or control; where we can surrender naturally to the process.

In seeking out our path we are confronted with numerous choices. Many choices are laden with concepts that may burden our minds with mistaken or conflicting ideas and goals.  The choices we make matter. They establish how we grow, evolve, and prepare for Awakening. And when we are sufficiently prepared, Divine Grace will carry us from ignorance to the realization of our true Divine nature — what we are and always have been.

Full Dawn Circle is here as a resource to help you find and stay on the right path; and to support you along the way – to help you align with the Divine and become more receptive to It’s Presence, to prepare for Divine Grace, and to move forward on the path to the realization of your Divine nature, and the lasting peace, love, joy and harmony that comes with it.
