“Shake me into wakeful gratitude.
As I remember how to merge with you.
How to be embraced by you.
How to know that I am you.
And In my remembering
Love me in my letting go.”

Excerpt from Nature Prayer
In frustration male #1 vehemently says, “Fine!”
Male #2 responds, “We have a job to do.”
Male #1, “How are we going to __________ her?”
Male #2, “We adore her.”
Male #1(?), “She’s accelerating.”
Male #3, “One or the other.”
The Infinite Self is a rebel. As a child, and any child you hear having conversation today, many questions are asked, typically in the form of “Why?” There is a presence here which knows the Infinite Self is a rebel, and Strong. It breaks the child when they are young and leads them into conformity. You see the many systems which are in place to complete this task.
Should the child grow, or be stubborn enough to rebel, sometimes recklessly, then this ‘presence’ must work over-time to tame the heart of them, toying with the mind, implanting self-doubt, breaking down self-confidence. This child, by now young adult, must continue to “buck the system’ so-to-speak, if they wish to hold onto their inherent power.
Many people are influenced to assist in this ‘breaking’ of the spirit of the rebellious one. Often it ends in suicide, or uncontrolled rebellion which ends in someone getting hurt, and then prison, where they no longer are able to threaten the ‘system’ which is in place.
But sometimes … they survive.
Sometimes, they remain free.
After trauma, and should there be survival, this rebellious one will climb from the pits of darkness and enter the light once more. From this place, having been intimate with that which has tried to destroy them, they are much stronger than before, and have knowledge of the tactics used to try and rid them from this reality.
Lessons learned, a grace forms in the mind as they see the affects of these ploys upon people in their surroundings. Compassion grows as they witness others fighting this attack. Understanding has formed in their minds and they are able to assist, should one ask, or be open to suggestions on how to beat this charge.
There are many here who have walked through darkness, who have shed that which does not serve them, or the goodness of life. While climbing from the pit of this darkness, they left behind that which allowed them to be put there in the first place. They suffered a ‘rebirth’ and now utilize their lives for healing what remains broken in their own hearts and minds, and then allowing compassion, care, and love to overflow into this world.
Embrace your inherent power, your strength. Shed cocky arrogance, go deep into the heart of things, see yourself in others around you. We are more alike than (originally) may have been admitted.
Healing your own heart, mending your broken spirit, you learn techniques which can benefit others … by healing yourself, you begin to heal the world.
It is a difficult task. It is painful to look deep into ones own psyche and critique it, tossing aside that which brings chaos, and replacing it with that which brings harmony. This is the most sacred work anyone can do … for this is what will heal and balance the world.
Once this work is complete, all things needed for balance in this world will occur. Alignment must happen, and it begins in ones own heart and mind.
Remember, this work you do not only benefits the life you can see, but that which you cannot. Those waiting to be born need us to do this work, so they have a safe environment to enter, otherwise, they’ll have to arrive and show us how it is done.
You know already what needs to be done … it simply needs to be put in motion. You are fully capable and able … are you willing?
Can corruption be repaired from the inside out? Or must it be done from the outside in? I’m thinking perhaps a combination of both. The work must be done from the inside but often requires outside assistance. All facets of this life must be able to flow together for successful change to occur.
People are purposefully raised in a corrupt system where fear and lack and constant need are reinforced in the mind and in life. This scenario steals from them the ability to see clearly, which is why it is important to believe in something, or someone, larger than self … for this is what will bring about openings, making it possible to see, and then act for change.
Confusion has been a constant in this world for as long as I can remember, and probably since the beginning of the cycles of time. The force behind it has pretty much guaranteed its continuance … but major shifts are happening now, disrupting the ‘norm’.
Those on the outside assisting matters have been portrayed to the human psyche as devils, as those who wish harm. Any time anyone hears something others do not, it is labeled as mental illness, or the presence of devils. Sometimes this may be the case, but not all times. So while people run in fear, medicating the reality of possible solution to pain away, the actual pain cycle persists.
This situation has been carefully planned, this is what must be transformed. A ‘counter’ is in store, a turning back of that which has infected minds. Will the new ‘wave’ be everything we are, but in opposite order? I hope it will be better than that.
The circle of life is not a circle at all. It is made of many segments which appear circular. If too many segments appear, does the circle disappear? Or is a corrupt segment simply removed to preserve the ‘circle’? How many segments have been removed? How many segments have been added? By whom?
How many people will choose to be kind once they realize it is beneficial to everybody? I would guess that everyone who wishes to live in a kind world would, and those who wish to destroy the world would not.
I catch myself saying, “I’m not very good at manifesting”, but perhaps I am and it comes so naturally it is imperceptible. My core belief is that all people are manifestors, awesome creators. It is also my belief that the human body and mind is the amplifier of Spirit. Yet with all of the toxic systems infecting the mind, the purposefully imposed drama and trauma in the world, that is what has been amplified.
Once this reality is understood it will be clear that the opposite must be cultivated in the mind and heart. These thought forms which have become so constant they’ve become habitual in the majority of life must be equally, and more so, purposefully changed, altered, shifted into a positive. In this way, the positive will begin to be amplified by Source energies when they meet the human body and mind.
Is it easy? That is a BIG NO. It is however necessary, should we desire true change.
People think they need to change the world all on their own, most people have no idea where to start, the task is monumental! It is much simpler than we may think it is. By growing peace in the mind, compassion in the heart, and truly seeing your own burdens carried, also being carried and experienced by someone else, on their shoulders and their life also … maybe in a different format, but a burden the same, then care shows up. The sense of aloneness begins to fade, and realization that we all share eerily similar traits and experiences becomes clear.
This then is what is grown when Spirit, when Source energy meets us. The care, the compassion, the knowledge of our similarities grows. Soon after, all of that other stuff, the ugliness that we have been trained to adopt and hold as our own is released. That crap is not ours … it never was.
My attention was nabbed by a song on the radio, the lyrics made me smile and I wrote them down, for this I feel is a message that is meant to be shared …
Take my hand. Let me take you to Love Land.
You say that I have changed, that I am not the same as I once was. You are mistaken. I am exactly as I once was, the only difference being I have added to it, I have grown, I have become more than I was before.
Distraction, you have supplied plenty of, will not hinder this growth, this expansion of self. I refuse to remain in a little box, stagnant and only listening to what you would like me to. No, I will stretch my wings until the day I die, then I will fly.
Silently, yet quite clear, a suggestion is made.
“You’ve got to let it go! If you don’t, they’ll keep jerking you around. Speak to me. The one who always hears but chooses not to fill your head with clutter, leaving room for you to interpret the world using your own capacity without interference. Rather than talk to them, talk to me. Put yourself on that path of long ago. See the trail, see the road. Visualize the conversation, and then have one.”
The one who supports you makes suggestions and does not demand … respects your freedom and does not enslave you … loves you for your uniqueness and does not insist you change to please them … reflects the goodness in you when your eyes gaze deeply into their own, and makes it easy to see how pure and spectacular you’ve always been, and always will be.
Bringing peace to a fearful world, to a fearful mind … there is no greater responsibility.
How do you eliminate fear? How do you eliminate greed and the struggle for power, or dominance?
This work is personal. Love cannot be demanded of others, just as a change of personality cannot be forced upon anyone. Those times are gone.
The future is space where all people will be free, working together for the benefit of the whole. There will be suffering and pain along the way. There are those who will never choose to be anything but harmful to their fellow man, or animals, or toward the earth. This change, this shift, will require a sort of cleansing … and by this I mean, those who choose to live by the sword will die by the sword until there aren’t any people left who choose that path.
Do you suppose the time is near when people will decide that killing and fear mongering is not the profession of choice? It seems more and more people are hopping on the war train. But perhaps this is the crux of the situation … many will fight, until the fighting ends.
Choice … it seems simple enough.
Individually, we are creators of our life. Collectively, we choose to assist each other or to use and abuse each other, creating circumstances which have potential for rebound … rebound of the positive, or of the negative.
Some ‘leaders’ are fine with the suffering of the people, as long as they are feared. Again, it comes back to fear, that pesky destroyer of families, of culture, of life.
I watch as people project their energies into whatever cause someone else dictates … war, behavior and decisions made by others, beliefs and religions, diet and dress, speech and mannerisms. Humanity moves about listening to these suggestions and then … just as a youngster who longs to be part of the ‘in crowd’ they take action for whatever they think will bring them acceptance, or some sort of respect.
Too often the energies poured into the agenda of someone else is not honored. C’mon, people die for someone else’s ideals … Losing their own life before they’ve even had a chance to discover the depths of their own hearts, or see the hidden pools of yumminess in their own eyes when peering at their reflection.
This is called ‘stolen life’ by the puppet master … who is not a master at all. The true ‘master’ is the one who encourages each individual to become master of his or her own mind, heart, spirit, and soul.
Look at your life. See who is pulling your strings, take back your power. Own it. The creation of the future, the one you will be reborn in to (believe it or not), is your choice. Beauty? Or shit.
And remember, wealth of any kind cannot be horded, for eventually all things will be redistributed, and the experiences one provides for others will become their own.
Many of us, if not all at one point or another, complain about our jobs, our necessary tasks in daily living, our responsibilities. It is clear that the excitement behind these opportunities has been lost.
Coming to the earth we have choice in whether we will assist each other in advancement, or inhibit the progress of each other. It is apparent that most people choose who they support and who they choose to destroy.
It is incredible to me how the human mind sees some as more deserving and others as less, I suppose it is due to the reasoning that some advance our agendas while others are perceived to deter progression.
The question becomes: what is true progression?
There are many ‘takers’ in this world who refuse to contribute to the success of the whole. These are usually the ones this struggle is with. It may not be their ‘fault’ as they may have come from an extremely poor circumstance where the only way they could get enough was to take it. Often hard work isn’t sufficient for success.
There will always be someone who will put their thumb on the advancement of others. It could be because they have seen the suffering and will do anything to prevent it in their own lives, even if it means forcing others to stay in lack.
How do we bridge the gap? How do we understand, fully, that ALL life is deserving of having enough? While some amass wealth beyond their needs, hoarding it as though they fear it may be taken, making sure that if it is they will have reserves, they turn a blind eye to those will fewer opportunities of self sufficiency.
Compassion for others seems to have taken a back seat to care for self. And it should, but not to the extent of standing idly by, turning a blind eye to starvation of people and animals, toxic dumping and poisoning of the earth, waters, and air. Self care does not equate to selfishness.
During this cycle of survival it appears many hearts have been seemingly irreversibly damaged. Let us hope that it is not irreversible, and that there is still possibility of healing for all.
When it comes down to it, fear has been the base of motivation, even surpassing greed and need for power… for at their base, is where fear lives. Even the one people refer to as Satan, or the Devil, operates from fear… fear of being under someone else’s thumb, fear of being powerless. As crazy as it seems …
I once asked my mother what she thought our purpose on earth is. Her response? Simply to survive. This made me very sad as I thought about her struggles and suffering.
My hope is that when we come out of the cycle of surviving, we will enter a cycle of thriving … for all who dare to enter this physical form.
I look forward to seeing humanity show their potential for love and care, equal to, or greater than, their capacity for selfishness and destruction.
This vision I have is what drives me in the honing of my own mind and actions. It is a reality which requires constant attention and effort. It is obvious myself, and all others, are no where near the end goal of peace for all. I dream of the day when, miraculously, all hearts will be mended, healed, and constant joy returns to life. I long for the day when we look at each other and see the amazing qualities we share.
Faith in its nearness keeps me hopeful, and watchful for signs of the turning, of the rebirth of the incredible loving spirit which is LIFE.
The mind expands, so full of, seemingly … everything. Awareness embraces the elements ~ water, air, earth, fire … it embraces possibilities as they enter the field of thought.
The effort to purposefully open consciousness in order to receive information can be a tricky balance between sanity and ultimate confusion. Doing so will provide access to those “aha” moments as well as those who despise the blessing of the “aha” onto humanity. One must be prepared for this and remain strong while the fingertips of the unseen play with the mind.
Discernment … how does one become good at it? Often the senses, those inner strings which are toyed with, allow a trigger to be activated … flight, strong stance or fight, a going to, and a turning from … these ‘skills’ can only be honed in the midst of experience.
Often life gives us things which we deem as unpleasant, yet these very things work out to be our greatest blessings … in hind-sight … although we’d swear the opposite during the most intense moments.
That which has kept the innermost portion of a man, a woman, separate from each other is breaking down. We find that our attention is being focused in many areas at once, aware of so much more that what is within the four outer walls … of the flesh, of the house, of the country.
Our emotions are amplified as we take note of the hidden, as we realize life as we’ve known it has been but an illusion.
The question then is how do we undo the training received and actually help one another? How do we release the need to safeguard our personal spaces and open up to facilitate healing?
While those intent on harming life will be successful, causing pain, the balance will be shifting, and when balance is met, even tipping to the opposite of what we’ve known, the harm will begin to decrease and peace will begin to grow, quickly becoming normalized.
Those brave souls who do this work are the most courageous of humans, for they risk everything in order to gain this balance … for the benefit of all life.
As you sit in meditation, or simply in a still space, in silence, absorb the thoughts which pass by, have the aha moment, go deep into this world and pull forth from it the things which will assist in expansion … of thought, of understanding, of compassion, of care and of love.
When we see that our emotions are the same as others, when we understand that all of humanity wishes to be recognized, understood, loved, and blessed with a sense of honor for that which they contribute, no matter how detailed, then we begin to know fully how alike we truly are. When this happens, we can look at someone and see their argument, their frustration, their joy … it is exactly as we have experienced during life, at differing times.
Fear, pain and the shriveling of self they cause are similar for all as well. Some are able to fortify and pull up, while others are more vulnerable (children and those who have suffered since the dawn of innocence). Rather than saying to those they should buck up, man up, woman up, it is imperative that we instead assist in the healing … especially if we are some of those who are among the first who are able to firm up.
The depths of our being are intertwined. It is quite truthful in that when one suffers, we all suffer. It may not be apparent in the visual, but it will affect all life as the ripples of the situation will forever expand and mesh with all other experiences.
Why does it seem the negatives are so much more powerful that the positives? Why does fear and pain seem to override joy and love? Why does war seem to overtake peace?
The reason behind the imbalance is quite simple … the negatives in life are promoted. They are promoted by governments, by television programs (movies and news), and by those who follow through with the ‘programming’.
Those who are awakening to the larger reality are often drugged and labeled as having a ‘mental’ issue, simply because our health care system is not equipped with knowledge or understanding. They are trained in symptom management only. Thankfully they are, and my hope is that they will rise to take their knowledge one step further, into that of true understanding of the union between the seen and the unseen.
Truth can cause anxiety and/or depression … once the workings of our current system are seen and understood, they cannot be forgotten.
The more we choose to ‘fight’ something, the greater energy needed to maintain the fight, for the energy dumped into it only makes it stronger. I am surprised more people do not understand this.
“It takes a strong man to go into battle, it takes an even stronger man to walk away from one.” The one who decides to stay and fight is doing their perceived duty, protecting that which is seen in need of protection. The one who walks away sees that the energy is being harvested, manipulated, and utilized to increase the warring. And while they walk away from the fight, they are attacked by their fellows because of it, so they are inwardly fighting a resistance to those who would manipulate them, and to those who have been convinced that fighting is the only way to be, the only way to survive.
It’s a double whammy for certain. Many folks in this world are battling two enemies, in fact, we all are. We struggle against peers who would steer us, we battle against the unseen manipulator who would have us destroy each other, and our self. We work diligently to manage our thoughts, to maintain control of the emotions rather that letting the emotions control us.
This life is indeed a battle, a battle for our sanity, for our ability to love our self and others, for control. In this control wars are fought, lives are lost, people starve … for food, for love, for acceptance, for encouragement, for recognition.
Stop the fight. BE you, BE whole, it is yours already. Stop allowing others into your mind, shut the door on their permissions for manipulating your thoughts and actions. It is but a game, a dangerous game … step out from it into the freedom inherently yours.
As you step away from the perpetrated drama, you will begin to see more clearly, from the outside. You will view the world as those who remain fighting crush each other, mentally, physically. You will see how they manipulate situations in their ability to live, and to thrive. You will see how they take … and only give when there is something greater to be gained. You will watch them as they destroy each other.
Being part of the destruction will not stop it. The only thing which will stop it is a non-participation in it.
Do you foresee a future where people will take note of it and act upon it? Do you think humanity is strong enough to withstand those who would destroy them? Do you think those who wage destruction will eliminate each other rather than eliminating the whole?
Are we willing to do our part, stepping back and preparing the tools (inner and outer) which will be needed to assist in bringing healing to those who leave the fight?
It is unfortunate that so many in this world make a game of war. It IS a game, one in which they are paid handsomely for … with money, washed in blood, while those who give the orders feast on warriors death and stolen power.
Who better to teach them than those who have already walked the path and are now in the unseen worlds providing influence for continuation? Continuation of death, and pain, and destruction which fuels their energy collection, and therefore their continued life … vicariously through our own, and the collective suffering of the world.
It has become quite clear humans are very good at destroying each other … mentally, emotionally, physically. Are we just as good at promoting health and care and wellbeing? Only WE can answer that question, should we wish to know the answer well enough.
These negative influences must be ended, they must be denied should humanity and all other life have a chance at true love and gracious living.
While you continue looking for that which you seek, be certain you do no harm along the way. You cannot force anyone to take on the role that you desire them to. While you try to create a situation or event, if you harm anyone in the process it only serves to solidify the situation you try to break free from.
The one you seek will find you in good time, when they are ready. When they do, then you will gain what you long for.
If you continue to cause harm in other life forms and minds, you only delay the outcome … with potential that the outcome will be the opposite of what you need.
Be definite in your actions, do no harm. Otherwise your dilemma may never change for the better, only increase what you are currently experiencing.
