The dictionary defines idolatry: extreme admiration, love, or reverence for something or someone.
The christian bible says it is: immoderate attachment or devotion to something or someone
Today as I sat outside the following perspective was shared with me.
Sometimes we idolize or glorify another person. It can even be an object, money, belief system, political association or anything that represents or presents itself as being more important than our relationship with Creator Source. Even good things can become idols when we make them the ultimate things in our lives. Idolatry is all around us and we are so often unaware.
It may begin by one feeling betrayed, a lack direction, fearing their life is out of their control and others are a threat to their lifestyle. They begin searching for someone or something greater than themselves to which they may become a part. So they listen and perhaps believe and follow the path upon which this person is directing them
Often people feel powerless in the world whether it is because they don’t understand what is happening around them, or they fear the present and future. They want to take back control of their lives and perhaps even become a ‘hero’ in saving the world. Joseph Campbell referred to this as the “Hero’s Journey”. The Hero’s Journey is about feeling the need to respond to the call to adventure, a journey in which we are instrumental in positive change for ourselves and in the world
When a person follows another and what they are saying and doing, this person becomes a type of guru, icon or hero. The followers are willing to give away their power of self determination and spiritual direction because within them something is missing or lacking and they want direction and fulfillment. The person they follow or idolize , or the object, or belief systems that person represents, fills that empty space within them at the moment.
We can look back to the past and wonder about the worship of people as the lesser gods or mythological beings. They helped fulfill a need for direction and hope in a world out of the control of the worshipper. As they made things better for the people or displayed a greater power or ability to maneuver or overcome the obstacles of the world, people began to worship them. They may not even have been a real being, but an Archetypal representation of an idea with which the people needed help in dealing or explaining.
Joseph Campbell said of Archetypes and mythology: “It has always been the prime function of mythology and rite to supply the symbols that carry the human spirit forward, in counteraction to those that tend to tie it back.”
For instance the archetype of the Trickster:
Almost all non-literate mythology has a trickster-hero of some kind. … And there’s a very special property in the trickster: he always breaks in, just as the unconscious does, to trip up the rational situation. He’s both a fool and someone who’s beyond the system. And the trickster represents all those possibilities of life that your mind hasn’t decided it wants to deal with. The mind structures a lifestyle, and the fool or trickster represents another whole range of possibilities. He doesn’t respect the values that you’ve set up for yourself, and smashes them.
However, the Trickster by spurring us into action can help us to begin a path of forward movement instead of being stuck in fear or self pity.
A wise man once told me. ” God cannot direct you from a stopped position. However, once in motion, if you are moving along the wrong path, God can give you a nudge in the right direction.”
.Today these lesser gods or archetypes come in many different forms such as , movie stars, musicians, athletes, the extremely wealthy industrialist, spiritual leaders and icons, political leaders or military leaders. They may even come in the form of your material possessions, loved ones or friends.
There are ones you trust and follow even despite any character flaws. Why? A person of religion may say that many past prophets and religious leaders were flawed and yet their God used them to lead and guide the people. They were called despite their flaws because they were willing to follow direction and share what they received. However, it is always desired by Source that once they begin working with Creator Source they will begin to make positive spiritual changes in their lives. Just because we begin flawed and Source uses us to be of service, does not mean that it is a desirable state in which to continue living ones life or that Creator Source will continue to work through them.
To be called is about giving up of self/ego desires in order to be of Service to Creator Source and all Life in love, and compassion in order to bring Light and Love into the world. Our service is to help others to be uplifted into a more spiritual state and direction. We are loved unconditionally by Source, despite our flaws, but Source uses us as we are willing to follow direction in Unity and Oneness, and if we choose not to do so, we are still loved, but Source moves forward to work through others until we are ready to make changes.
This brings us to discernment. It is up to us as individuals to ask for protection and guidance to be able to discern truth and to follow that which is of the highest good. Just because a person brings us a Truth at a time when we are ready to receive it does not make that person an icon, we make that person an icon by continuing to follow and listen to them past the time of their sharing of Source Truth, or a greater truth than we had previously known, along our path of Ego directed truth.
We also need to be able to grow spiritually. Just because something is truth for us at this time in our life, does not mean it is forever true. There is Divine Truth which is forever the same and never changing. For instance – Like attracts Like. That is a forever Truth and Universal Law of Creation. That we are born to marry, have a family, home and work at a job until we retire and finally die. Is a relative truth that we are taught to be a guide for our lives. It is an accepted individual choice to accept or reject in whole or in part.
Sometimes we get caught up in the truth of another because of that lack within us to be a part of something greater than ourselves. They may even show us a greater truth than we currently know, but we must learn to discern and not blindly follow another.
“People say that what we’re all seeking is a meaning for life. I don’t think that’s what we’re really seeking. I think that what we’re seeking is an experience of being alive, so that our life experiences on the purely physical plane will have resonances with our own innermost being and reality, so that we actually feel the rapture of being alive.”
― Joseph Campbell, The Power of Myth
By understanding our own hero’s journey, we can recognize and respond to the call to adventure of spirit and we can become participants of positive change for ourselves, for our community and the world. The desire to serve the Creator and humanity in creating a better world for all is the enlightening course to follow.
It is important to be discerning in our life of that which we choose to believe and follow as the guiding light and principal in our lives. Remember others are flawed, as are we and that the only true barometer of truth lies within us. If we learn to listen to the voice within we become able to discern the greater truth from the relative truth that is being shared with us. We learn to take back our power and be inwardly directed by Source instead of outwardly guided by Ego of ourself or another. No one can misdirect us unless we allow them to do so.
Does the truth or calling we see and hear from another inspire us to become more spiritually loving and compassionate on a forward and continuous basis. If not then take of the truth of the moment to which you are inspired and move forward along your path.
As we seek to grow closer to Creator Source we have a desire and willingness to be of service and to surrender our ego desires to a greater calling and unity.
Seek the higher journey of life. The hero’s path will open. Discern the Source of your truth and inspiration and keep only that which of uplifting and enlightening value. The truth and path lies within the heart.
May your light grow ever brighter.
Let this video and belief be shared and lived.
VACCINE OR NOT?
The choice is yours alone.
Like so many other topics which humanity is facing these days, the idea of whether or not to take the Covid vaccine is an individual choice. No one has the right to make another person feel bad about the choice they are making.
Theories, ideas and beliefs regarding the Covid 19 epidemic and the vaccines effect abound on every type of information media. Some may be truth, partial truth or misinformation, and it is difficult to know which is which. Yet many when they make a choice are so dedicated to their choice they are blinded to the rights and choices of others and the affect their actions may have upon another.
These strong beliefs lead to the shaming and blaming of others regarding their choices and actions. Some don’t believe the pandemic exists or that people have died, and rally against the guidelines designed to help keep everyone as safe as possible.
Some believe it exist but that the disease and vaccines are designed to hurt us, control us or prevent our spiritual advancement. Others believe it exists and are living according to the guidelines provided in order to be safe, healthy and to help keep others healthy. There may be overlap in all of these beliefs.
Each person has a right to believe as they choose. The choice they make is right for them. However, we must all remember our rights should not infringe upon the rights of another and their choices. That is symbolized by masks and social distancing, which prevent our physical symptoms from being spread to another if we have them or from receiving the symptoms from another. Thus allowing us each our choices while both remaining well, as a choice of compassion and caring.
Back to the choice as to have the vaccine.
I am not supporting either viewpoints here, that is your choice. I am attempting to help us all to realize that we each have the right to choose without being ridiculed or shamed regarding our choice. Also, to share some information regarding each choice and how we can keep ourselves physically and spiritually strong.
I read a letter to the editor yesterday in our local weekly newspaper. We have heard a lot about the Spanish Flu but there was another disease that came about in the 1950 – Polio. The woman wrote about how in the 1950’s polio became a dangerous disease that killed and disabled many. It swept the country not as prolific as the flu but still very frightening. When a vaccine was created people were so happy to participate and the disease was brought under control and virtually eliminated as a threat. People listened, followed guidelines, and did all they could to stay safe. They had experiences, in a non digital media time period, similar to us.
One amazing story is called the ” A Summer without Children” here is the link.
A Polio Epidemic and the Unflappable People of 1950 Wythe County, Virginia
One county in Virginia during the Summer of 1950 had a major outbreak. They put up signs along the roads warning people not to stop. They local new and radio stations continued to inform people of current information as it became available. Businesses suffered, people, especially children stayed at home and eventually the impact lessened and they were able to resume normal life. It was hard on them also. The article shares, “The radio was just wonderful. That was our contact to the outside world. Our parents kept nothing from us because we’d sit around the radio and listen to see how many new cases there were. The radio was our connection to life.” Thus, radio’s popularity within the community skyrocketed and WYVE responded positively by creating innovative programs and informative news broadcasts to accommodate their changing role.
People took the vaccine because they wanted to stay safe and get back to a normal life outside of their homes. Of course not all took the vaccine, they did not feel threatened for whatever reason. Today, some of us have an immunity to the Spanish flu because our ancestors survived it and immunity is passed on via our DNA. At that time there were also theories being spread that caused fear and concerns with people. However, the social media was limited to newspapers, magazines and radio, not all people having television at that time.
There have been many plagues and epidemics throughout history. Medical professionals have learned more information about how to help us from each one. The science of medicine is a process and most human created medicines have side effects of which some are not known for many years. Yet, like chemotherapy taken for cancer, people are willing to accept the effects in hopes of living longer and being cured.
During Covid19 with the death rate skyrocketing around the world, the need for a vaccine to help us beyond the quarantine, masks and social distancing was a hope for many who watched others die. I realize not all believe the pandemic existed or that people have died, but I am asking you to look at and understand the viewpoint of those who do. Realize that if what has been reported is true, then many have suffered and died, as well as their loved ones who were unable to be by their side and mourned alone feeling helpless at not being there to comfort their loved ones. To belittle them is the same as if one said the passing of your loved one was a figment of your imagination. I am asking us each to look at the beliefs of another and to understand whether we believe as they do or not, we need to honor their right to belief and choose as they do if we want them to honor your right to believe it is all a hoax designed to control others.
You have the right to choose not to wear a mask but your right ends at the social distance of another’s rights. You have the right to choose not to get vaccinated, but your right to go unmasked without a vaccine ends at the social distance of possibly spreading the disease to another. This is simply taking responsibility for your choices. If you and another both make the same choice then there is no infringement.
ALLOWING OTHERS THEIR CHOICES AND BELIEFS WITHOUT JUDGMENT.
A mask can symbolize something being hidden, the many masks in life that we wear. We put on these masks as an individual based on our relationships as a means of interacting and being accepted, a form of protection Until we are secure in ourselves, know and love ourselves as the sovereign beings we are, we continue to wear masks. To not wear a mask is a symbolic choice of removing our masks and the control of others and ones need to recognize this choice and how it helps the ones who make this choice feel more personally empowered. HOWEVER, this choice ends where another person’s rights begin. You don’t have the right to endanger the life of another even if you don’t believe in the pandemic or that masks help. Perhaps, it does exist and you simply haven’t encountered a person with the disease and if you did you would believe as they do.
Perhaps those choosing to follow guidelines and wear a mask are not afraid, but have a medical condition which makes them cautious or they are simply being respectful of the concerns or rights of another.
REMEMBER WE ARE ALL IN THIS TOGETHER.
If you go to a place of business that has restrictions with which you don’t agree – your right is to shop elsewhere.
Belief is a powerful energy – for what we believe with sufficient emotion can manifest in our lives.
The decision of masks or no masks is similar to vaccine or no vaccine.
If you get choose to get vaccinated, you do not have the right to belittle one who does not choose as you do. Be aware, and if you are in a social situation you may want to keep a mask handy to protect yourself even if vaccinated. One would hope the unvaccinated will show the same courtesy, but again this is a matter of choice. If they will not comply by using a mask or leaving, then you can choose to put on your mask or leave. Another option is for all present to make a choice a majority decision as to if they can stay or should go, and those not agreeing with the decision leave.
We all have the right to choose, and we need to allow instead of getting angry or abusive.
WE CAN”T CONTROL THE ACTIONS OF ANOTHER ONLY OUR REACTION.
Some believe the covid19 whether real or not was designed to get the mrna and dna vaccines into the public. The idea of an injection affecting our rna or dna is disturbing to many for its long term effects on not only ourselves but future generations. Some of the beliefs being that ones want to control humanity and/or prevent individual spiritual ascension.
Whether the control is about tracking us, mind control or destroying a persons spiritual beliefs, the choices we make based on these beliefs of possible ramifications are up to us individually. Some see it as a test to see how much we trust in our Creator. Even in spiritual communities ones say that if you take the vaccine your faith is weak and /or you won’t ascend spiritually depending on your spiritual practices and beliefs. Perhaps each of these beliefs are true. If a person holds something as true it is for them, whether it is a Divine or Higher truth or it is their relative truth.
Perhaps , Source has chosen to use this situation to aid us along our spiritual path back to reconciliation and Unity. Whether there was actually a pandemic, and if so no matter who created it or how it is spread, there has been a pandemic of human reaction and division which has occurred. The fear, anger and violence has increased to cause us to mistrust each other. On the other hand, as in many crisis human compassion is the driving force for many as we see with essential workers and humanitarian aid. Others have taken the time to focus on their own inner spiritual strength and journey.
We are allowed to choose our path and actions, whether aligned with Creator Source or our own Ego, or another persons direction. However, that does not mean that Source will not use these situations to help us to open our hearts and minds to a greater love, light, unity and compassion to raise the consciousness of the masses in order to be free. This is what has been happening.
Getting back to the vaccine choices.
One’s can know they are protected by spirit and for whatever reason take the vaccine. Perhaps part of their pathway is to show that no matter what is put into our bodies, through our faith we can overcome it, in order to have optimal health. We can with Love and Light repair our rna and dna, remove the toxins and even ascend spiritually. We can take the vaccine and know all that exists is part of Creation and we choose our path and destiny by our focus upon Love and connection to Source, which is greater than anything created by humans.
So, if you know your can be protected and/or overcome the vaccine effects why take the vaccine. Perhaps, you are a wayshower to others of this understanding that the Love of Source overcomes all human creation. Perhaps your lifestyle and purpose are made easier by doing so. Perhaps you know that you are a spiritual person living in a human body as a vehicle to get around this planet and this is part of your path.
You may choose not to take the vaccine, for you know you are protected by Source and have no need for that experience. You need only keep your focus upon your path and care for your physical form to keep it strong. Meanwhile, do not take the path of spiritual superiority over others believing their choices inferior to yours. All choices are right for the person and the path they have chosen.
If you choose to disbelieve in the pandemic, perhaps you are aware that there are forces and energies which try to control humanity, and you are resisting this control and trying to take back sovereignty of your life. This is good as long as you care about and honor the choices of others, and do not infringe on their rights as you do not want them infringing upon your rights. The hope being that your exercise your rights with honor and respect of others. This is a step along your path of awareness and freedom and is so important outward step.
No one can control us unless we give them the right to do so. We are so bombarded by media on so many ideas that it is easy to get caught up in any one particular belief that catches our eyes. Even ones who feel they have strong spiritual beliefs can get caught up in a particular belief or idea about how to act, and feel their belief is better than that of another.
Perhaps none of these are conscious choices but from a lack of understanding of where we are placing our attention at the time. For where we place our attention is our god of the moment and it is how we are controlled. It is said that if your eye be singular upon Source your body shall be filled with Light. The light protects us from everything. Light of Source and Love of Source are the same energy.
Fear is not the opposite of Light and Love, but the absence of light and love from a thought or situation.
Know that true freedom and strength come not from the physical exercise of power and force, but from the inner connection with Source which is all things and when connected in purity of love this allows you to experience the abundance and peace of true freedom and sovereignty and a desire that all experience the same
We have seen throughout history the use of war to supposedly free others. In some cases it works, in some not or perhaps for a little while. In all cases force begets force.
Like begets like is a law of Universal creation. Love begets love. If you show love, compassion and understanding for another and their path, you will receive back the same from them.
It was shared that when a sufficient number of humans have chosen to make their spiritual path of Unity with Source consciousness then the control energy will be broken for all.
Wisdom is being shared to aid us no matter our choice to keep our physical form in good health during this period. The greatest key is to center oneself in the heart and experience the Love of Source and allow it to pour through your and into the world. This can transform and protect you from Covid19 or the vaccine.
Some suggestions are given as to supplements also for the physical form even if you do not have a spiritual leaning or are agnostic. Examples are supplements used to aid in the repair of DNA and RNA like B vitamins like B12, Folate, Vitamin D, Vitamin C. Look it up on line DNA repair. Eat well cruciferous veggies, all veggies and fruits, cooked tomatoes, SUNSHINE, exercise, do cleanse of bowels, take warm bath, steam or exfoliate skin.
Spiritually, Fill yourself with the love and light of the Source and ask to be cleansed, healed and protected.
If you would like more information please feel free to contact me. I have links to two videos – one for taking and one for not taking – which share supplements and other spiritual practices shared by the video maker regarding staying health after you make the choice. They may not agree with what I have shared, but their advice on supplements etc. is sound.
Again, I am not espousing any particular choice or belief. This is up to you. I am asking you to be more open and allowing of the choices of others and keeping everyone safe and healthy.
CHANGING THE WORLD
In order for there to be changes in the world it must begin by changes within ourselves.
Power and Sovereignty begin within.
In order for there to be changes in the world it must begin by changes within ourselves. All that we want and need in our lives and in the world comes first from a thought or desire within us upon which we focus our intent.
That which is manifest in our world came about as a result of individual and or collective desires. Sometimes it takes a group agreeing to something like creating a religion or forming a new country. An important factor is does it come from an ego based mind or a more unified loving perspective. For those which come from an ego based desire are ones which are limited by 3D existence.
However, we only have control over our own individual focus and desires. For manifestation begins with a thought or desire, upon which we focus our intent and energy until it manifests in our lives or we choose to stop focusing upon it. In that case it may still manifest but not in the same manner as we thought and desired or simply slip away.
The speed of manifestation in our life depends upon our feelings or belief about ourselves, our abilities and power to influence our life direction and our future. Many see power, control and manifestation/abundance to be desired and complementary abilities and or energies. Power and manifestation are complementary but are limited by our ego direction which has a control focus. If our ego is directing, then we are limited to a 3D focus of power and manifestation. If we are unity and universally focused through the heart we are in the unlimited power of abundance and manifestation.
Do you believe you are a victim of others or the world? Or are you the directing you life and actions?
Dr Wayne Dyer said,” When we change the way we look at things, the things we look at change.”
The way we look at things is our power of perception and manifestation. Power is a perception we have of ourselves, others and the world. Perception is a strong energy. If we view ourselves as powerless it will become our reality, for we will act and behave in a manner that reinforces this belief. If we recognize and believe we have the power to succeed and change our life we will begin to take actions that will manifest these changes in our life. Even in times of great despair and hopelessness the power to change that belief and move into our power exists within our hearts.
The power of one person cannot decrease the power of another unless they allow that to happen. You may think ,but what about someone that steals from another, abuses another, or any other negative action that hurts or limits another financially, mentally, emotionally or physically?
Unfortunately here in our 3D world bad things do happen and harm comes to ones who did not apparently deserve to suffer. It is sad, and a topic for discussion another time as to why this may happen, beyond the obvious exercise or misuse of power from one person or group forced upon another. However, now we are dealing with how we can make the changes on a personal level from being a victim to becoming a powerful sovereign Being.
We may suffer physically and financially and be unable to stop the ramifications to our physical form or finances, but power does not come from physical things like money or the body, not true unlimited power. One event, tragedy or set back in life doesn’t mean we are a failure or unlovable and valued person in this life. That power to overcome this belief comes from within us However, these physical or financial ramifications can only effect us long term on the mental, spiritual and emotional levels if we give them that power. Being a victim comes from long term acceptance that another has power over us, or can harm us and we have no ability to change that situation.
Money, physical harm, intimidation or any form of thought influence is only a tool that another may use to exert their 3D influence upon another. They do so that they may feel more powerful, but that is simply a lower vibration a limited energy that will end either during their lifetime or upon their death for an individual or upon the ending of a business, media source, or a political, financial and religious institution.
True power is not 3D in its source but begins within and comes from the non physical energy of creation and the key to connecting lies within the heart.
The key is that no matter the events that have happened to us so far in our lives, we always have the ability to turn within our heart and connect to the source of all Life, Love, Wisdom, Abundance, Truth, Power and Forgiveness. As we move into the heart and think of love, and ask to be given the wisdom, strength, love and power needed to make changes in your life. Then open to the love and let that energy move outward, listening to the feelings and thoughts of guidance which come to you helping you to make the changes needed. Think of the future you desire, and as long as it does not harm another living thing or person, you will be connected to the love and power of creation. This is the source of existence by whatever name you choose to call this limitless energy.
How do we change the world? We change ourselves to match the energy of love and creation which allows us to become powerful conduit of Creation that brings unlimited and eternal abundance to us and all life. One can be an agnostic and still understand the power of love, compassion and forgiveness.
A wise man once said: “If what you have been doing up until hasn’t worked, it never will”
To choose to take back our power by hurting , demeaning or stealing from another is still a part of the 3D limited victim consciousness. This only brings more of the same into an already chaotic world. It is time to change our focus and actions to be of a loving and unifying focus.
The energy of our intent and desires will manifest because that is part of the universal laws of creation. The creational energy follows thought. However, whether this is a limitless energy of eternal existence or limited to 3D physical laws is based upon our inner intent and desires.
Once we tap into the heart and love within we can begin to love ourselves and others. To see ourselves as truly worthy and strong people who feel confident and able to do anything. We can let go of the pain inflicted by others because they no longer have any power over us. For as long as we focus upon the pain and anger of the hurt they inflicted, they have power over us. We are able to become the conduit of a higher power and grace which transforms us and the world in which we live.
Others will begin to see the change and possibilities in you and seek to understand and know more. Then you can help them to make the same connection to the energy of creation and the power of abundance, wisdom, love, truth and compassion.
This begins the change in the world we want to see and it began with your choice to change.
Our source of abundance isn’t our job, another person, or an institution. Our abundance comes from our connection with Universal Oneness and Creation for it is TRULY unlimited. You will find yourself inspired by that which brings you joy, good health and abundance sufficient to help others begin along their path. Ones may need a helping hand which you can give on the physical level from your abundance in order to be able to move beyond their focus upon on their lack and pain. So that they may look without and see the Light and Love you shine as a conduit of creation, and want to learn the secret.
We can feed a person for a day, but better to teach them how to fish, for then they have the abundance of food throughout their lives.
The choice to be a free, loving, abundant and powerfully sovereign Being is yours. However, in making that choice you are opening the door for not only yourself, but others to transform and change the world.
Information, Knowledge, Wisdom and Enlightenment
These words are actually important steps to understanding ourselves, the world, the Universe and even the Source of Creation.
Wisdom is a gift that we can receive either through inner reflection and connection to the Universal Source of Creation, or we can learn through experience and experimentation. The latter being the slower course. In our world of scientific research designed to prove on a physical level any concept, idea, or theory, it is the most acceptable.
However, Enlightenment can only come through the conscious connection to Universal Source whether we move to that point directly by searching within or taking the slower steps.
The differences between these words as concepts are often misunderstood. Information is a collection of data by an individual whether it be for research which is on a scientific, moral, political, social or spiritual level. One may begin with a theory, idea or belief and wish to prove their theory or belief correct.
Knowledge occurs as we begin to organize information in a coherent manner so that we can begin to understand it and hope to prove our theory or belief which began this process. It is also the first step in applying our information in a scientific process.
Wisdom is the application of knowledge once we have determined whether our theory or premise was correct or incorrect. We can either make changes in our theory and begin again if we find we were incorrect or apply the results as a guide moving forward.
Another way in which we gain Wisdom is connected to Enlightenment. For we can bypass the process of gathering information and hoping to gain knowledge by beginning our journey within our higher mind and heart. By asking for a higher direction and understanding of any situation and waiting for inspiration and guidance to come.
Ask and it will be given to you, seek and you will find, knock, and it will be opened to you.
All wisdom, knowledge and information is available to us as we connect with Universal Source Consciousness (by whatever name you choose to call this Source). To connect we must go within.
I have a simple parable to illustrate this concept:
If you tell someone that holding their finger in a flame it will suffer a burn you have given them information.
They may verify this data first by placing something else in the flame and seeing it burn and thus moving into wisdom. Perhaps, instead they put their finger into the flame and it is burned. They have applied the information to verify it’s veracity and gained knowledge. Hopefully, to never do so again, which is wisdom.
If they believe that putting their finger in the flame will burn them and they choose not to do so that is wisdom. Whether they have moved here from the information step, the knowledge step or they have asked within and been shown what the result would be and knew not to do so without going through any physical process.
There is a story about Adam and Eve when they chose to not adhere to the wisdom of the Creator and to partake of the Tree of the Knowledge of Good and Evil. Whether this is a factual story of events or a parable, we will look at it as a parable for this sharing. Adam and Eve lived in a pure state of Grace and Unity with Creator Source and All Life. Anything they needed was given to them and all wisdom and knowledge available for asking because they were one in Consciousness with their Creator Source. They lived in Unity with all living things. They did not need clothes for all was in perfection and nothing needed to be hidden, there was no shame or fear, no evil, only goodness, abundance, and peace.
In the parable, the serpent, which many consider to represent knowledge, tempts Eve to partake of the Tree of the Knowledge of Good and Evil, which she and ultimately Adam do. They became fearful, ashamed, tried to hide from their Creator what they had done. They had moved through choice from a state of Grace and Wisdom to a place of confusion. They now needed to gather information about the world around them in hope of gaining knowledge and understanding about their new situation. They had left Unity for duality, a feeling of separation from the Creator. In the process, this choice they made (the story says they are expelled by Angels of the Creator) expelled them from the Edenic state of Grace and Unity with all Wisdom, Love and Understanding. It was through their choice that the fall from Grace occurred, at any moment they could have returned, by moving from fear of the Creator back into seeking within for Oneness.
I believe this story to be a parable of more than just two people who made this choice but each being who did so who has come before us. Adam as the male, represents the strength, logic, and will. Eve as the female, represents the wisdom, intuition, nurturing. Each representing aspects of the Creator Source which now are choosing to follow their own inner ego guidance instead of moving in Unity with direction of Universal Creation. As each person chooses to follow their own personal ego guidance, they are creating an individual world, or if they work together with others an agreed upon reality. Which at this time has created a world filled with chaos.
To make choices is a gift from Creator Source and is not wrong. Choice is a part of creation expanding and exploring the potential and where it will take us in creation. The wisest choice is to stay in unity with Creator /Universal Source in this exploration and expansion, instead of relying on our ego to guide us. However, there is a fail safe for in expansion there is also contraction. As we expand to a certain point in the Universe, the strength of the Source as love and grace will begin to be felt more strongly. This energy will begin the stirring, within ones who are able to partake, a desire to move within and reconnect on a conscious level, with the Creator, the Universe and all life.
As we can see the choice to partake of the knowledge of good and evil, the duality of ego over unity, has brought us to chaos.
Once a wise man told me:
IF what you have been doing up until hasn’t worked, IT NEVER WILL.
Right now we are at that point where the energy of the Source is very strong to aide us in awakening from our slumber and to begin the search for more information, knowledge and wisdom about a greater state of Being. Hopefully, we can feel this energy and realize that what we have been doing hasn’t worked. How do we move from the chaotic fear based society in which we exist to create a new world of love, peace, harmony, balance, abundance and joy for all life
In the parable we moved from Wisdom, to confusion. We had to learn how to get back, but we felt cut off from the state of beauty and grace in which we lived, and felt ashamed like we were being punished and ALONE.
Yet, we continued to seek outside of our selves for the information and knowledge instead of within. Seeking without can bring us to a level of wisdom but not to enlightenment and Oneness.
Enlightenment comes when we reach a level of spiritual awareness that we are not bound by the control of ego or mass consciousness, but instead are directed from within by love, compassion, understanding, wisdom, harmony and balance.
The process can be as easy as knocking on the door and walking through. The door lies within your heart. Earth is designed as a heavenly place. We can experience it as Hell or Heaven, it is a matter of choice or consciousness. It is time to get off the slow path and return to the path of Grace.
The heart is where our connection resides, and from their we are connected to Universal Creator Mind to guide and enlighten us.
Once we make the choice, it filters into mass consciousness and makes the process easier for the next person. In Unity and Oneness we stand as enlightened beings and others feel and are drawn to the Light within us.
Blessing to you.
We are explorers at heart, but still need to learn how to explore in a balanced and lovingly expansive manner.
Souls were created to explore the Cosmos in order to create and expand existence and the understanding of Being. Even after souls became limited into physical forms upon the Earth, this impetus to explore, conquer or understand the unknown has been a driving force within us.
This energy is beautiful, when it is directed and utilized in a unified manner to enhance the lives and wisdom for all.
Upon the Earth, the driving force behind the actions of most people is the Ego. When the ego drives this energy of exploration it becomes a dominating and controlling energy. It is focused upon controlling people and the environment to bend to the will and vision of the explorer instead of seeking to understand and see how the new can be utilized for the greater good of all life.
However, it is our right to choose how we direct our energies. We have can create based upon our personal desires, but this is the lowest of energy uses. It is not wrong to have what we want in life. The law of balance in all things however, will eventually bring about a need to balance this manifestation if it was a dominating, controlling or harmful energy used to manifest our desire, and we may not like that result.
For when we direct our exploration and energy to manifest our desires by controlling or dominating others, we will create chaos. This can result in a reaction of fear, anger, hatred, rebellion, violence, war, distrust and other harmful energies and actions.
Creator Source or Universal energies always seeks to balance in love. So when an energy of imbalance exists in the world, the energy of love, light and balance will be sent forth in order to help aid and awaken ones to the imbalance in their lives and world in order to be supported in correcting this imbalance. This energy of balance is available and our soul responds, however depending on the hold of ego upon our mind, we may limit our souls response and ability to help us to be free and return to balance.
Some may respond to this energy but the limits of thier ego control causes them instead of reflecting within to instead rebel and resort to physical means to regain their freedom and power. This occurs on the physical level, and not on the soul level and often without the soul directing the path to freedom, we fall back into old patterns. We may even seek to disempower and control others, especially those we view as having disempowered us previously.
If however, we choose to respond by going within to our hearts, and feeling the love and allowing it to open us to our higher state of being we will be not only Free, but empowered, protected and Blessed. For when we exist in a state of Union with Universal Oneness and the Source of Creation, we are protected, and we move in unity for the greater good and blessings of all life.
It is the sword of Truth, which is love and light that cuts the bindings of others and even of the form to set us free. This same energy of the Sword of Truth which sets us free, protects us, inspires us and guides us to BE all that we were created to be. We become sovereign Beings.
Throughout the Universe as Ones have reawakened to their Sovereignty, the power of those who have enslaved them has been broken. The Light and Love of their Sovereignty has forced back those who seek to control from the places where they live. Much as the Light of a candle will cause the darkness to disperse. Until the sphere of influence of these ego driven explorers has shrunk into a small area of the universe in which the Earth exists.
I think of it as similar to how we take care of an infection in our body to prevent it from spreading until we can heal the infected part. The body encircles the infection with white blood cells to fight off the infection and prevent it spreading. We then inject it with penicillin in order to destroy and transform the infection and heal the body.
Those who have been freed of this infection of ego driven exploration now volunteer to focus their light and service on helping us. In order for them to help, first we must ask., that is the Law. The Universal Oneness of Creation sends forth the Balancing energy of love equally to help all even the Ego driven, but we must open to it, in order for it to help us.
Thus, as we move forth with the Explorer of boundaries energy within us it is important that we return first to balance in our actions in order to not create more chaos in the world. We have been doing this ego driven exploring on earth with limited attempts to move out into the solar system and universe. However, as we see private industry taking up the role of space explorers, it is important to think about the motive driving the exploration.
The Universe will monitor our actions and limit our ability to take our ego driven controlling energies into the greater regions beyond earth. For then we are infringing upon the rights of ones who have already freed themselves of these energies and we do not have the right to attempt to enforce themour energies and views upon others. Until we have GROWN up morally and spiritually we will be watched and limited. We have seen this with nuclear weapons and power plants as Non Terrestrials monitor our atomic usage. They have the ability and will shut them down, if we attempt to use them to destroy the Earth for that will have ramifications beyond on planet.
All life is connected and our work on the atomic level flows outward beyond earth and that is not allowed.
Exploration is an impetus of our soul and genetics.
First however, let us learn the greater lessons of love, unity, compassion and hope for people, animals, earth and all life before we attempt to move beyond the earth.
THEN WE CAN EXPLORE AND PARTICIPATE IN THE GREATEST ADVENTURE IN EXISTENCE>
NOW – Seeing the Truth of the Moment
Humanity lives mostly focused on either the past or the future as a basis of what we think do and say in this moment. We seek to find a point of reference from which to base our choices and actions, so that we can determine the meaning of the moment in our lives.
Yet, now is the most important point of reference you have. Nothing else exists but this instant in time. It is the past, present and future simultaneously. This is such a hard concept to understand because it is easier to feel it, and to experience the emotion of the moment. When we let go of our point of reference and expand out through our hearts into the all of the moment then we begin to understand.
This is the moment when we experience what is spoke of as the “AHA MOMENT”. This is the moment when we realize the eternal oneness of this moment. We can feel the inspiration and expansion of our conscious understanding of existence and who we truly are in that wholeness.
We begin to understand that we are in one instant the drop of water and the ocean simultaneously. All that we need to know and experience is available to us in that moment.
Then the illusion begins to fall from our eyes and we see the world in which we live as it truly exists. A type of hologram or program of experience created and operated by the computer we call mass consciousness.
We connect to and tap into this energy when we are born into this world. It is part of the system of learning and growth for which we signed up when we decided to be born upon the earth.
Earth is a beautiful, loving jewel in the crown of creation. Earth is a gracious, loving and caring Entity who agreed to allow this experiment we call humanity to play out upon her form.
Earth is like a classroom in which we as student have been experimenting with creating a program called humanity and human existence. We have the ability to choose what we will experience and as a choice is agreed upon by a large group of people it becomes a permanent part of the program for humanity.
Other choices we make are of a more limited and personal nature, which directly affect ourselves and those within our sphere of influence. These choices are usually not of a permanent nature or widespread nature, like what we eat this day or where we spend our spare time. They will change as we change our intent and focus on a personal level. There are other choices that may affect more people, like taking a new job in a new location or one that allows you to supervise or influence large groups of people.
As an individual develops more stronger energies of emotion, intent and focus they are more easily able to influence others through their work or media. They may even be able to apply this energy to mass consciousness through their intent. The power and development of communication and media in the 20th and 21st century have enabled this to be a greater influence on mass consciousness, than ever before in history.
When a strong orator or person of charisma, power and energy which are of a political, monetary, or spiritual nature speaks on media, they are able to convince others of their belief or point of view so that it can become embedded in mass consciousness and available to multitudes of people. Some are able to imprint their thoughts and intents on mass consciousness through personal will without using media.
For what we can come to understand in the moment of NOW is that statement that we are the drop of water ( the individual) and at the same time the ocean ( all of creation). All is one and never separate, except in conscious belief and understanding. What we do unto another we are doing unto ourselves and the creator. We are simply a spiritual conscious Being who is moving upon this earth within a 3D human form.
Our consciousness or we may call subconscious is always connected to the Creator and all other parts of life and humanity through what some call the soul. We simply have forgotten.
There is only one way to move beyond the influence of others and living according to another’s wants, needs, desires and intent. This is a time to stop – breathe deeply – close your eyes and relax into your heart and ask to be set free from the illusion, fear and influence of others and to experience the freedom and joy of now. To feel the love in your heart, and see the beauty in the world. To be inspired to live in harmony with all that is gracious and of harmony in the world.
AHA – I get it now. You will say.
At those times we quiet our mind enough to hear the words of the soul or spirit speaking to us. Perhaps it may not be the first time you quiet, open and listen,. But, do not give up, take a few minutes as often as possible. For the spirit within us must be asked and allowed to help us through our conscious choices. Yet, for the mass consciousness influence it does not need our individual permission because we created the mass consciousness throughout history by our choices and agreements. For mass consciousness is about control. When we stop and turn within you will understand what is true freedom and continue to seek it in your lives.
Where do we go from here?
Where do we go from here? We are still in the midst of Covid 19 and in a world filled with fear, anger, mistrust and hatred. How do we move forward to create a better world for everyone, with so much separation?
My first response is to come back to our center within our heart, be still and ask for the Divine Creator to help us to find peace and to find a new direction in our life. Ask to be kept safe from sickness, and to have food, shelter, peace and love in our hearts and lives and the lives of our loved ones. Yet I would say, take it one step farther and ask this for all people and life upon, within and around this earth. Ask too that the earth be healed.
Yet, I know ones may laugh at this because they do not believe that love can help us. That love is a sign of weakness instead of strength. Know that in the darkness you cannot see where you are, or where you are going without the Light. For it is the Light that shows us the way in the darkness, so that we do not get lost, and can find our way to safety.
What is Light? It is the essence of Creation and the Creator. Light and Love are the same essence. You cannot have one without the other. I do not speak of the Love which is romantic, but the infinite love that is the essence of Being, creating, allowing, forgiving, helping, uplifting, and embracing others. Love which knows that there is sufficient for all if we care and share, and so we do not have to fear another make take what we have from us. Love that knows as we empty our cup through sharing we make space for it to be filled with more of the Divine Essence of Abundance. Love that allows others to find their path, and walk it even if it appears to differ from ours. Love that realizes all Life comes from the Creator Source and eventually returns there, so we are all part of the same whole. Love which is the armor which protects us from harm, for no darkness can harm us if we walk in oneness with the Light and Love of the Creator. Love which is the medicine which protects us from illness when we know we are one with it and believe and have faith in that understanding. Love which can transform and heal us.
LOVE – all we need is LOVE.
Yet, many will still laugh. Believing they must protect themselves, love cannot do that. They must take what they want for there is not enough in the world to go around it is us or them.
WHERE DO WE GO FROM HERE?
Stop – listening to that which creates fear, anger, hatred and separation beliefs and feelings. Begin, to go within your heart and listen to that which speaks of peace and unity.
We cannot force another to believe as we do. We can speak our truth as we see and believe it to be. There are cases of Stockholm syndrome where ones have through force joined with their captors to survive, but is that how you want your life to be? To force another to believe as you do, that is not belief it is fear?
In America, it is time for both sides to put their differences on the back burner and begin to come together to help all the people. Ask another what they believe or feel, and why it is so? You may find you have common ground. Build upon that common ground to find a way to move forward to benefit both sides. Do not fear the other, instead look to them as a brother or sister, born of another mother, a step sibling. You are part of a family and need to find a way to build a life and move forward together.
It is a wonderful time that we have a woman in a position to make a difference in our political world. May we pray that she leads with her heart, and wisdom to bring a time of communication for which we women are so adept.
For men it is time to move into the heart. Be willing to speak to each other from a place of caring, sharing and compassion. Seek to find your common ground. Join a group where you learn to communicate with each other from the heart. ( I will say the same for women). It is time to stop seeing enemies and start seeing – fellow americans or human beings.
The time of needing to control others is over. It is a time for truth to come forth, but be discerning in what you accept as truth. Just because something is written or spoken in the media or on a stage does not make it truth.
ASK yourself – does this bring me a feeling of peace, hope, calm, unity and compassion for others. If it doesn’t let it go. If it brings strong emotions of anger, fear, hatred, desire to harm or control another, LEAVE IT ALONE.
There is a long road ahead. This road can end in civil war in america or even perhaps world war or major natural disasters. The end game is up to us. The weather and world events are the result of the actions and energies which we as individuals put forth into the mass consciousness. If we continue along the same path we are on, the times ahead will be hard.
IF, we stop now and turn our attention to unity and caring we can change how the future unfolds. It starts with you and builds from there. People tend to respond to the actions they experience. If your actions are negative, hatred, anger they tend to respond thusly. If you actions are caring and helping, they respond the same. Each action compounds because it often moves on to the next person they encounter.
WE CAN CHANGE THE WORLD – ” When you change the way you look at things. The things you look at change.” Dr. Wayne Dyer
If you are not part of the solution – you are part of the problem.
IF – you blog, try to make it of a positive and uplifting message.
If you volunteer – BLESS YOU – continue to help with a smile and inner prayer for others.
If you are a coach, teacher or any type of instructor or hope to be – teach ones to have a positive, heart felt response, thought, word or deed in their life. Teach them how to tap into their heart and move forth in their life with heart direction.
Care about your neighbors. Love your pets as part of the family.
BE KIND – BE PATIENT- LOVE
Love is not weakness – it is easy to hate, bully, fight or try to control another. It takes inner courage to forgive and have compassion for those who would harm you.
There is so much help coming into our world from the Creator Source and the Universal Beings who serve the Creator in Light and Love. YOU have to but ask and they will help you as long as you are not seeking to harm another and it is in accordance with the Divine.
SEEK and you will find that the Divine lives within you and is awaiting for you to Knock upon the door of your heart. When you knock the door will be opened and you can but ask and it will be given.
MAY YOU HEART BE OPEN AND GUIDE YOU ALONG YOUR PATH.
May the Blessings and Love of the Divine be upon all people of the Earth. May humanity heal their hearts so that their bodies can be healed. May the Earth be healed and may we work in unity for the healing of earth. May all people and animals know a life free of abuse and neglect. MAY ALL KNOW LOVE, have food, shelter and peace.
Good or Evil
Yesterday I saw postings where one person was writing about how Jesus was a reptilian pawn of the church to control and deceive people and another which said anyone who believes in Archangel Metatron believes in a demon. The purpose in each was to espouse their beliefs as being right. Perhaps they believe they are enlightening and helping others, but in reality they create confusion, doutb, fear, suspicion and hate. All emotions that can lead to violence, war, anger and separation.
This battle of beliefs has been in progress for eons of time on earth and recorded since the beginning of written history. One religion or belief system fighting another for their right to be the one true religion or holder of truth. Religions have been influencing politics and politics influencing religion throughout history.
Religions and governments have been enslaving, torturing and trying to exterminate indigenous people from lands into which they have been expanding for millennium of time. Sometimes, as in America even when they were moving to escape their own religious persecution in another land.
Yet, the basis of most religions is Love and compassion.
How can we justify actions that hurt another person or people when our religious beliefs are supposed to be based on love and compassion?
Let us return to the first sentence in this writing about one person calling the beliefs of another demonic. Why do we need to demonize the beliefs of another? Is it because we are insecure in our own belief and need to justify it by destroying that of another?
All that exists comes forth from one source, whether we call it God, Creator Source, Allah, Infinite Mind, Universal Awareness, Nirvana or any other name. As creation expanded from this Source into the Universe in which we live, we were given the right to choose to remain in unity with this Source or to choose to follow our own will and desires.
As ones chose self will over the Divine direction we created the chaos we experience upon the Earth. Throughout history on Earth ones have been Divinely inspired to bring messages to humanity of hope, love and higher inspiration to help us remember our Source and Oneness.
Religions have sprung forth from the writing which their followers recorded of their experiences. Doctrines of conduct have been established based upon the interpretations of those writings by leaders and teachers within the church, based on their understanding through the lens of their human experience and mind, as best they can.
Some have formed anti church religions because of their experiences with churches and religions or become agnostic. Plus we have the records of non terrestrial beings who have contacted humans and religions sprung up calling them gods. We have the worship of Satan and demons on a conscious level. Some humans like the ‘gods’ of mythology, they have come into a belief in themselves as superior beings and right to rule leaders based on the adoration of others in what they say and do, or their family of birth.
All of these are taking our focus outside of ourselves as a focus of belief in something or someone else as a basis of truth. It does not mean they do not have truth within their belief, it is usually in the practice and application of these beliefs in their daily lives as influenced by the human mind, experiences and ego, which creates the problem.
Truth is relative or Divine. I have a more in depth writing on this if you want to read it but I will summarize it here. Divine Truth never changes it is the basis of creation and comes from a Divine Inner connection, direction and inspiration. Relative truth comes from our interpretation of information or even a Divine Truth based on our human understanding, experiences and beliefs.
Divine Source has allowed us to choose and explore creation so that one day in our human experience we will say “ENOUGH” let me be done with this chaos, hatred, anger, fear, and despair. We will then stop seeking outward for truth, validation and direction. Instead we will move into our hearts and ask for Love, Peace, Hope, Compassion and Forgiveness, Inspiration and Divine direction to fill our hearts. and minds. We seek within for a higher Truth to show us the way back to unity, hope and beauty in the world.
When we come to this point of connection and allow the Love to fill our hearts, minds and bodies and begin to share this with others, then others will be inspired to seek more also, for we are drawn to the light to dispel the darkness. When enough have made this connection, the Light and Love of the Oneness of Creation will begin transforming the energy of mass consciousness and it will be easier for humanity to make the connection.
We do not need to preach to another, shame them, denounce their beliefs, force or fight with them over who is right and who is wrong. They have the right to believe as given by the Divine as much as we do. In America, this is written into our constitution. WHY? Because many of the people who came here from Europe and England in the early days were fleeing religious and political persecution. For throughout history, religions have influenced political systems and political systems have influenced religions. All in attempts to establish a right to rule as they expanded into the world. Many have persecuted or attempted to annihilate indigenous peoples as they expanded in their manifest destiny of their right to rule the world and humanity.
Each of us has the right to believe as we will. Whether we agree or not. However, you will be curtailed if your belief harms or infringes upon the rights of others, as is established in the laws of the state system.
When each person is ready and they have reached the depths of their belief system and perhaps find something lacking, or they may connect with a person who inspires them, or they have an experience which touches their soul, then they will being asking questions and searching for something more.
We do not have to preach at another, or try to convenience them they are wrong, for when they are ready the teacher or next step will appear to guide them on their way. To often throughout history more chaos has been created by one group attempting to force another to accept their beliefs.
Instead let us try LOVE. Try being a living example of Divinely inspired and directed Love, hope, compassion, forgiveness and understanding in your life. If you are a living a divinely directed life you will not need to preach to or even try to influence others, for ones are always drawn to the light. You are not the source of this Light and Love, but a part of the Living Light and Love, a vessel of its expression on Earth. Ones will want to experience this and to learn more about having this in their life.
However, we must always, as we begin searching or becoming an influence on others,be aware of two things. First, it is easy for one who is expressing these energies unless they are consciously asking to be protected and stay connected in humbleness to source to have their Ego flattered by the attention and to come into a belief that they are the source instead of the vessel. So they need to be on guard, discerning and connected to true source and not be influenced by the ego and/or the energies of the earth mass consciousness and subconscious energies being projected like EMF waves, Ultrasonic, LIFU, Mircorwave, etc. and the thought patterns projected with them to influence the subconscious mind.
For those who are seeking they must ask for protection from the Divine Source, seek from their heart for guidance and discernment. So that they will not be fooled by the darkness(that created by human ego mass consciounsess) projecting as Light or the subconscious energy influences of systems of the world.
I say these not to scare anyone or to judge any of these but as guidance to seekers. We may go through many belief systems along our path. Each one adding to our growth and knowledge.
THE KEY – is to seek from the heart and let that which brings us a feeling of love, peace and compassion and unity with others as a guiding sign.
BLESSINGS to each of you along your path and may you come to know the Divine within your heart as a guiding light along your path.
