What is the Higher Mind?

It is the inner voice that whispers to us when we need advice. It is the life force the sustains the body and the soul. It is the power of compassion that beats in every heart, and of spiritual discernment to know right from wrong, good from evil, justice from injustice, and the path to eternal peace and enlightenment.

It is the source of hope when we question our purpose in life or doubt our ability to cope. It is the wellspring of courage that enables us to face life's challenges and the strength to pursue success. It is the seed from which good thoughts, good words, and good deeds spring.

It is the Light that shows us the way in this material world – a single point of light in a universe ablaze with stars; one grain of sand on the eternal shore of Universal Consciousness. It is the wonder that we experience when we gaze up at the star-filled night sky and feel an inner stirring that takes our breath away, even though we don't know why.

It is the doorway through which we pass as we grow and learn to understand the true meaning of Love, Light, and Wisdom. It is the mirror that reflects the divine spark of the soul, and a window through which we can see and know God.

It is the culmination of all that we have been in the past, all that we are today, and all that we will become tomorrow as we travel the path to self-realization and enlightenment.
