Dear Light Group,

Most of us at one point or another feel as though we’re stuck. We’d like for things to be more open and free-flowing, but we feel blocked, boxed in. The energy is not moving. We can’t seem to go forward. The door seems shut.
This happens when we feel compelled to follow a pattern that has been laid out for us. We’re blocked from carrying out the pattern because it isn’t the right pattern for us. When we try to maintain the pattern, we just end up butting our heads against a wall. Nothing seems to be happening, and everything seems to be going wrong.
Jim Goure suggested that, when this happens, we simply say, “Thank you, God.” He advocated saying it “a thousand times….Repeat it over and over, and the door will swing open. But it will be a different door from the one you have been programming for yourself, the one you think is the right door.”  
Jesus said, “I am the door.” Jim’s interpretation of this was that it is the Christ within us that is the door. That Christ within will open the door of understanding, and we will then know that the Divine is present.  
So there is nothing wrong with our existence, except our consciousness. We think we must be a certain way.  We even think spirituality must occur in certain ways–that we must be on a pathway or that we must pass tests.  
But Jim’s take was that there is no law from God saying that we must pass tests or follow a certain spiritual pathway. “God Is. Right now. You are the door to Life itself. You don’t have to go anywhere. You don’t have to experience anything. You don’t have to travel on a path. You Are. You are Divine. Right now!”
Jim’s advice was, “Let go. You Are. You can become the Divine in action simply by desire and by working at it. If you can have the same desire for Divinity that you had to walk, it’s here. It’s instantly here. There is nothing that delays our spirituality except our ability to accept. It’s here. It’s now.”
To get more deeply into this consciousness, you might want to try prayers such as, “Thank you, God, for freeing me to know Thy Divinity. Thank you, God, for freeing me to know that Thy Divinity is flowing through me at all times and in all places. Thank you, God, for freeing me to know that the Divinity that flows through me is the same Divinity that flows through everyone else. Thank you, God, for freeing all of us to know our oneness with Thee. Thank you, God, for freeing us to know that there is one Light, one Love, one Truth, and one Spirit flowing through all of us. Thank you, God, for opening the door to allow in Thy Light, Thy Love.  Amen.”
Love and Light,
