“The Spirit sees what the mind only hopes for…”

This quote is suggesting that while we can hope and pray for a thing, our own higher spiritual connection will end up leading the way to creating the most positive outcome for our hopes and dreams … if we allow it do so. This chapter quote is one of my favorites of the fifty-one in the Harry Pond Looks Homeward novel. “Spirit see, what our mind only hopes for, is a truism for me that I find hard to put into words. But here I go ….

I will start by saying that we can and do manifest our hopes and dreams by embracing them with all our minds and hearts. That said, embracing our hopes and dreams, and manifesting them, may not always be in our own spiritual best interest. We know we can “make it happen” for we have done so all our lives in one way or another … and we hope it will all be positive, but it is the higher consciousness or Spirit that resides within us, that KNOWS whether our hopes and dreams are aligned with own best interest and the fulfillment of our unique destiny.

So, for me it is imperative to of course have my hopes and dreams as we all do, but to check-in always with the Spirit within me, my guidance, as to whether the origin of those hopes and dreams comes from my “lower mind,” ego, or from a higher place of destiny fulfilled within me.

This said, here’s how I understand all this: Within us all resides a unique and wonderful gift that I call the “indwelling” Spirit of the Oneness, God. What is so wonderful about this is that we are all able to access our own direct connection to this Presence to receive “higher wisdom” in relationship to every aspect of our lives. It has been my experience time and time again, and I know this is the case for so many of humanity – that Spirit does see the full picture that the mind can only wonder about.

So, Spiritual awareness is a wonderful way to check-in and keep ourselves and our hopes and dreams aligned with our higher good. If this is so, you might ask, why don’t we all seek to make contact with and listen all the time to this spiritual Presence within us? After all, if it has “higher wisdom,” all of us would do well to seek that relationship. .
