110:3.6 You must not regard co-operation with your Adjuster as a particularly conscious process, for it is not; but your motives and your decisions, your faithful determinations and your supreme desires, do constitute real and effective co-operation. You can consciously augment Adjuster harmony by:
110:3.7 1. Choosing to respond to divine leading; sincerely basing the human life on the highest consciousness of truth, beauty, and goodness, and then co-ordinating these qualities of divinity through wisdom, worship, faith, and love.
While it is easy to love God the Father and man our brother, and to accept with joy cosmic citizenship, how do we more fully participate as active followers of the spirit leading by the Father Fragment? If we desire divine leading, have we chosen it?
What types of things could we do to base human life on our "highest consciousness of truth, beauty, and goodness" ? Is the actual "co-ordinating" of "these qualities of divinity through wisdom, worship, faith, and love" an automatic effect, or must we cause the co-ordination actively?
I surmise it is both actively by us co-ordinated, and other-than-consciously done for us. Yet it really is the greatest gift. How can we become more open to the reception of the truth, beauty, and goodness of this gift?

Nice to meet you!
I like you post.
How can we become more open to the reception of the truth, beauty, and goodness of this gift?
I'd say for me prayer and trying to be more dedicated to doing God's Will has allow me to recognize and enjoy this gift more.

Jesus was the perfectly unified human personality. And today, as in Galilee, he continues to unify mortal experience and to co-ordinate human endeavors. He unifies life, ennobles character, and simplifies experience. He enters the human mind to elevate, transform, and transfigure it. It is literally true: "If any man has Christ Jesus within him, he is a new creature; old things are passing away; behold, all things are becoming new."1103:06
Love, unselfishness, must undergo a constant and living readaptative interpretation of relationships in accordance with the leading of the Spirit of Truth. Love must thereby grasp the ever-changing and enlarging concepts of the highest cosmic good of the individual who is loved. And then love goes on to strike this same attitude concerning all other individuals who could possibly be influenced by the growing and living relationship of one spirit-led mortal's love for other citizens of the universe. And this entire living adaptation of love must be effected in the light of both the environment of present evil and the eternal goal of the perfection of divine destiny.
And so must we clearly recognize that neither the golden rule nor the teaching of nonresistance can ever be properly understood as dogmas or precepts. They can only be comprehended by living them, by realizing their meanings in the living interpretation of the Spirit of Truth, who directs the loving contact of one human being with another. 1950:05-1951:00

I thank you for your responses.
As our Master perfectly led us, leads us, and continues to do so, we realize the triumph of love.
God is all encompassing of truth, beauty, and goodness, and infinitely more. God is love. To bring love to life, we must at the same time be acting upon our higher conciousness of these three aspects of God.
Certainly the Universal Father is worthy of all our trust. When we submit to the doing of the Father's will, that is the eternal choice. Having chosen to become like Him, we naturally want to be closer to Him. We can attain this by following the life and teachings of Jesus.
God's will is perfect. What other things must we realize in order to truly desire the spirit leading of our Father Fragment? Once we truly desire this leading and submit to it, we will accomplish a part of our Father's will.
Joy abound in the hearts of the children of the Eternal God.
