Two doors opening to star filled skies. You say you’ve never felt like this before. Surely you have, although you may not remember, for you all are like me, and I am like you. Deeply, what affects one affects all.
Gracious gifts we give to each other through our experiences. Knowingly or not, every event that has impact on your life will affect every life around you. People do not even have to be in the same room, the same city, or state, or even county. It is all interconnected, WE are all interconnected.
I see you laughing, I feel your joy, I sense your heartache, your pain. I witness the battle as it is waged and I see you standing, so brave, so strong. I want to be like you, I envision a world where everyone is … fighting for peace and freedom in a new fashion, yet an old one too, reborn into a world of chaos.
I am glad you are here to teach us the ways of peace. I am thrilled to find that these threads belong to me, are present within my being. Even though we are apart, we are near, heart to heart.
Thank you for showing me how it is done. Thank you for teaching me patience. Thank you for steadfastly showing me that perseverance for a cause benefiting all, increases, blossoming and healing.
I am blessed to witness you as you breathe. I am joined to you, our roots entangled through time. As time speeds up, and then slows once more, we arrive at seasons, where we can relax, and know it was all worth it.
After years of reading books which offer advice and guidance on improving the mindset and beliefs about the past, I now am coming into the desire to read something other than that. There are stories of the villain and the hero, those who love so great that they lay their very lives on the line while fighting to eliminate darkness from the world.
I know there are many who walk this earth with desire to free people from tyranny and evil, and many are misguided by those very villains who wish to destroy the earth, and life upon it. I wish I could say this was fantasy, but it is not.
My hope is that those who fight for freedoms sake see that freedom is being lost in this land, and they will be able the extricate themselves from what they do in order to bring balance for the people at home.
Training to ‘follow orders’ runs deep in the psyche. I hope the inner person will be able to see through it, to see clearly, and to make choices which benefit, and not harm.
Through the thick darkness a sliver of light appears, red and glowing, heat eminating from it. It widens, soon joined by another, the darkness shrinking. Small, low flames develop, the heat intensifies. Darkness is split in two, it disintegrates in this heat, this fire. A spicy aroma begins to permeate the room, not unpleasant, but causing a slight burning of the eyes. Helping We … It begins.
Within each of us is a force that yearns to assist in healing. There has been much hurt and harm inflicted upon the human race, indeed, upon ALL life. Now is time for an allowing … a saying YES to partnering with that which will end the constant war, the war that has been brewing and killing since time began.
There is a need to stop self-poisoning with substances made legal and pawned like candy to an ailing society … alcohol, foods laced with chemicals one cannot pronounce, waters filthied with unknown compounds, pharmecueticals which mask issues caused by the poisons, numbing the mind to the connection which heals while cultivating new dis-eases.
There are alternatives available, should the choice be made to find them and learn a new set of tools for coping with a system intent on destruction. There is no one who can make this decision for your life but you.
Reminiscing about the days gone by, she pauses periodically to let the memory fully absorb into her consciousness. She remembers the days of youth and the energies that were with it. Vibrant happiness, and also vivid unsettling emotions and experiences. Through the swing of it, she began to learn balance … oh how difficult this is, still to this day! She wonders about the future. Worrying about it will do no good, she knows this, so she tries to relax into the present moment.
Gloom has a tendency to wiggle into the center of the stomach, bringing with it doubt and fear. These are the energies which feed the snare we find ourselves in. Breathe … feel them yes, claim them, no. Often these emotions arise from an outside source, some event triggers it. Deeper into the core of us though, is peace, joy and love. The other, tries to override the naturalness of the truth of life.
Dreams of a better tomorrow, hope in that these dreams are realized, coming to fruition at the perfect time … these things will determine the days outcome. Without hope for a spectacular future where peace reigns, havoc will bust loose and pain will overcome everything, everyone.
We can see, looking out into the world, that hope has been stripped away from a huge number of people. Is this a planned thing, or is it only training to solidify hope in the minds of the many? Who is actually pulling the strings here?
Learning how tomanipulate the energies of the body and mind is crucial. Rather than being manipulated by the energies of the mind and body. We all know what it is like to walk into a room where the energies are full of a warring nature, it is thick, and can make us sick. THIS is what we are dealing with as a whole in this world, it is obvious as we look into the news, as we see the reality of it around us when we walk along in our day. Only by managing our own personal space, only by creating a calm atmosphere in our own mind, can we begin to see change … and when many people do this, the calm energies will unite and we will be able to see it on a larger scale.
Peace IS possible … if we believe it is … if we work toward its reality in our own life, it will then spill into the world.
If it weren’t so serious it would be comical. “HA!”, she laughs. Two sides of the coin. Are there always two side to the coin?
Life is incredible. We come into it and we are impressed and molded with the state of the world. We get to know it intimately, and then we transform the training of current reality, altering habits, and create a NEW reality into which others are born.
Outer change of the ‘big picure’ begins with alchemy of self.
There is no ‘going backwards’, there is only release of that which is not benefitting life. Utilization of what works while honoring the sacred, we build a new future.
As in part one of a movie series, what was in the beginning outshines what comes after, realizing this, it becomes the favored.
She dreams, her breath comes deep and her feet move as she lives in the unseen world. She stops … resting once again. He says, “I’m the idiot …”, and she says, “NO … I do not claim it, and I do not perceive it to be you.” She breathes as she watches the night behind closed eyes. He continues, “… a terrible mistake.” She wonders who they speak of when they say, ‘Jacobs family’.
Jacob experienced a vision of a ladder, or staircase, reaching into heaven with angels going up and down it, commonly referred to as “Jacob’s Ladder”. He heard the voice of God, who repeated many of the blessings upon him, coming from the top of the ladder.
According to Midrash Genesis Rabbah, the ladder signified the exiles that the Jewish people would suffer before the coming of theJewish Messiah: the angels that represented the exiles of Babylonia, Persia, and Greece each climbed up a certain number of steps, paralleling the years of the exile, before they “fell down”; but the angel representing the last exile, that of Edom, kept climbing higher and higher into the clouds. Jacob feared that his descendants would never be free of Esau’s domination, but God assured him that at the End of Days, Edom too would come falling down.
It is so difficult to see what our governing bodies have allowed to happen in this world, to know the harms they have permitted to come to all life. Greed and the need for power are so ugly, and all the while they smile as though they are helping people, helping the animals, the land and the sea … the air we breathe, cleansed by failing forests which are depleted from destructive land usage.
In my life it has been made clear time after time that I am not quite what someone else wants in their life. I have often berated myself, accusing myself of not being good enough. I have experienced much pain due to rejection.
In my now it has been made more clear than ever that although I may not possess the qualities others perceive might benefit their lives, I do have every quality that can benefit my own.
A life lived in the attempt to be all that others think I should be has led to much heartache, for I will never be able to live up to so many peoples differing ideas about what that looks like. Better to work towards pleasing ONE (me) than the many.
I have shut the door, for now, on folks who are not willing to keep it open for me. Instead of always trying to enter their lives and be what is pleasing to them, and being rejected, I stop trying, and it is apparent they have no intention of trying to meet half way. Too much of myself winds up in disappointment as rejection of my personality is stated and made clear, so I focus on loving me. Who can do it better?
I have lost a lot of time training to be my best friend, while trying to be that to others, and failing. As time on this earth is not foreseen or guaranteed, I will not waste any more of it. Loving others from a distance, while loving myself up close and personal, is where this life is going to be spent.
Those who feel the same about the environment and other topics I care deeply about, will be there. SO … focusing on issues that are important to me, ME being one of them, and reclaiming the wasted energy of attempted people pleasing, will allow room for those who are of the same capacities as myself.
With patience and honor for self, I provide nurturing in my home, and when that cup runeth over, it will spill goodness into the outer, for that is what I cultivate here.
1000 times over there is demand to inform the world why these games are played out. Lives are at stake, they are being ended by this carelessness. There is no need to be loud or obnoxious to make it clear.
Life plus trauma, begets life plus trauma, it is everywhere and expansion is increasing. The pain must be observed, embraced, and consciously healed by each individual in order to reverse the flow of that which is damaging to the planet, and all possibility of a peaceful future.
It is challenging, it is frightening to revisit that which has caused so much pain, but if it is not dealt with, if people continue to stuff it and pretend it is not there, it will continue to manifest in very destructive ways, it will never heal, it will fester. We can see the truth of this in every day as we look around us and when we see into our own heart and mind.
The task of bringing healing to the earth is an arduous one, it is not meant for those who will not bring themselves to muster strength to face these things, however, ALL people have within them what it takes to do so. It is a choice, a decision which must be made on a personal level.
You’re either for growing pain, or for healing it.
What seeds are you planting for the future?
