Will we spend our time in memory of the past, existing solely in the ‘now’ moment, or in our dreams of the future?
Live … past, present or future?
Living in memory is like listening to a skipping record over, and over again.
Living in the present is awesome, since we never know if we’ll get another moment.
Yet, can the future exist without us envisioning it first?
Perhaps living in memory, or living constantly in the ‘now’ moments is what actually places us in a Zombie category. Non-creators. Simply moving around, eating, buying, and remaining surface level in life.
The artist must envision something before creating. Otherwise it’s just spilled paint … or sawed up wood… or, insert options here ___________.
The future MUST be visualized.
By someone …
It is my perception, of self and what I experience around me, that the majority of life spends time in all three aspects of awareness simultaneously … while someone(s) else create our bigger picture, our future.
Perhaps now is the right time to real in memory from our past, stepping out of the now moment, and seeing the future we wish to dwell in, making moves toward that end.
Do everything with love for what you believe in, for the future that you see in mind. Always for the love of this vision … or whatever else it is you believe in, even if it is yourself …
Digital freeway signs telling you to “mask up” and “save lives” … fear porn.
Words programming minds into a state of lack perception.
Subliminal messaging in the television programs and commercials … buy this, you must have that (as with the toilet paper fiasco the world over).
Some have become so addicted to these hooks they cannot pull themselves away from that which places them in the mind … they have been “programmed” to absorb more and more of these barbs … that which keeps the mind caught.
They are compelled to turn on the television as soon as they arrive home, some saying they don’t watch it, they simply have it on for the noise it provides. Noise is right. Noise filled with barbs for the mind.
Cannabis, beneficial when used properly, a detriment when not. Keeping the mind at surface level limbo. Unable to delve into the deep waters of the snare. Unable to see the snare, let alone comprehend its magnitude.
Alcohol, which totally obliterates conscious usage of words and intention.
Be mindful of what hooks you allow to be implanted in the psyche.
If they are anything other than love, peace, compassion, harmony and such related concepts, you can be certain it is not for benefit, but a steering toward another’s agenda.
Indeed, even the wolf masquerades as a light worker. Steering minds into lack perception. A weakness implant, drawing the mind into believing only they can help you out of a situation or set way of thinking. Stripping spirit of its own authentic power.
Trials are here for a reason. They build our capacity to withstand chaos. The lessons we learn through process allows compassion for others experiencing same and similar circumstances, growing our heart, our center, our connection should we choose not to shrink.
This is why many times another simply isn’t able to help us. We must endure, gather the lesson, before it can be released.
Be mindful of the words you absorb, and the words you use upon another.
They can be of benefit, or add to the snare.
Use experience to benefit self and others, not tear everything down.
Words … being used by the media now for separation and control … creating divide like never before, and politicians are pushing all the buttons in alignment with the message.
Love means many things to many people, here is one man’s expression.
YOU ARE THE ONE
Do not seek love. Do not leave yourself for love, and search for love in the other. Love is not an object, it cannot be given nor taken away. It cannot be found nor lost. Love is not a feeling, a state, or a peak experience, but what you are, presence itself.
Do not confuse love with attraction. Attraction comes and goes, can fade over time. Do not confuse love with longing. Longing is impermanent, transitory. Do not confuse love with feelings of bliss, pleasure, an excited nervous system. These passing states cannot last; it is not in their nature. Even promises, given with such certainty today, with the best of intentions, can fade tomorrow, or be broken.
Love, however, does not fade. Love cannot diminish over time. Love is not a commodity, a shifting form. Love is a field, a field within and without us, a field in which thoughts, feelings, even the most seemingly solid plans for the future, can appear and disappear. Love holds hope as much as loss, excitement as much as boredom, crushing disappointment as much as bliss. Love is the field for the shifting forms, the ground that holds us as we walk, sit, talk or do not, feel what we feel in each other’s presence, go about the business of our day, plan, eat, hope, say goodbye, try to love. Love is greater than us. We do not generate it with words and deeds, or even intentions, but we are continually embraced by it, held in its vastness, no matter what we do, or do not. We are married, we divorce; we are friends, we are lovers; we break up, we break together; we are born, we die; the field endures.
Nobody has ever given us love; that is the great illusion. We have simply remembered the field in each other’s presence, sometimes, recognised eternity in the midst of the everyday, then credited another. Love never came from outside of us; we simply touched our own presence, fell into the love that we are, and cannot not be. And nobody ever took love away from us; we simply forgot the field, and ‘blamed’ the other, and looked for love again, feeling its absence, lost in a narrative of ‘lost love’. Yet love was there, even in its apparent absence; it was present, even in the loss. It cannot be broken; a wave cannot crush the Ocean.
Do not seek love, do not look for the light, but be it, offer it; the joy of loving another is infinitely greater than the joy of fearfully clinging to another’s love, for deep down you know it is only an illusion that what you have always longed for could ever have come from outside of you. You are the One; you have always been the One.
The search ends exactly where it began – in presence.
You realise you are love itself, and this changes everything; love is yours, forever, even when it’s not.
You are continually moving, evolving and going through cycles in your life. Attune and align yourself with the rhythms of nature around you. This is an exciting time with new beginnings, growth and changes. There are many settings that will provide for inner development and expansion. Pay attention to everything that is going on around you and the effect it is having on you. Consider environmental issues or use this as an opportunity for new studies. It is a good idea to recognize the need for extra rest and personal care while integrating new energies, so you are ready for important messages and opportunities. Just as in nature, you too have seasons of growth and maturity.

There is a ripple effect of energy flowing from you. Be positive. Simply staying happy and sending that happiness out from your heart will benefit those around you. As you adjust your motives and attitudes, this energy flows from you in concentric circles affecting all of your desires and beliefs. There is a chance to bring good fortune and influences to all of the events in your life. As circles also represent cycles, know that you are continually going in and out of cycles, growing and changing. With every ending comes a new beginning. Trust that the positive energy you radiate will attract what you wish for.
If you have a goal or vision, be sure to provide the right surroundings for that dream to flourish. Positive self-talk, affirmations, being kind to yourself, celebrating your talents and successes – all of these create fertile soil for your dreams to take root and grow. Sometimes, when you push too had it can hinder the harmonious unfolding of your journey. Trust the process, relax, and allow nature to take its course. Belief and positive support is needed to accomplish your goal. Keep in mind; Nature makes growing and blossoming look effortless but the secret is in all the details – position, sun, soil, air, water and nourishment. Make sure you are taking the steps necessary to attain your perfect environment.
When you are busy, rushing, stressed, worried or overwhelmed, it is easy to lose track of the simple things in your world that bring you joy. This is a huge nudge to remember to create some fun. Rediscover enthusiasm and fascination through adventure and spontaneous happenings. Engage with your life again and take in your surroundings, observing the importance of living life to its fullest. Decide to do something for the pleasure of it and see where life takes you.

Start to identify plans and actions that will lead you to achieve your dreams and goals. Your dreams can become your reality. This is a time when you need to be able to apply detailed planning in order to manifest your dreams and realize your goals. You need to remain focused on the practical side of things. Keep your feet firmly planted on the ground. It is easy to be distracted by more ideas and concepts. Keep focused on what is realistic and achievable. Your common sense and pragmatic approach will lead you to a solution that actually works. Begin taking steps that will bring you closer to your dreams.
The only way you can accept, respect, and cherish others is by accepting, respecting and cherishing you. Accept praise and credit when it is given to you. When you learn to be accepting, you allow your true potential to blossom. You claim your worth and reflect that light to others. When you see yourself in this light, other people cannot help but respond to your personal sense of value. As you strive toward more self-love each day, you will find yourself infused with new energy. It is okay to walk away from relationships that minimize or hurt you. Enjoy and love who you are.
Feel confident that things are falling into place. Just as a seedling breaking through the surface of earth, you too are going to experience an emergence. The efforts of your hard work will become evident and you will begin to see the difference all of that labor and time you have invested has made. Count your blessings! You are gifted with a creative touch and the ability to generate new and wonderful things. Take a moment to feel proud of yourself for all that you have accomplished.

When you witness the initial stages of dawn without the benefit of a clock or other timepiece, for awhile you may not be able to discern whether the sky is really lightening. The stars remain visible, the shadows of the night still shape the landscape. It is that way with any beginning: it is difficult to tell where the old ends and the new begins. Gradually, however, it becomes clear to your senses that the light is definitely increasing; and as you continue to observe, the world slowly wakes up, accompanied by all the sounds, smells and freshness associated with it. Soon the first glimmer of the sun shows. A new day has begun.
This is a time to say farewell to the old and honor the new by releasing any self-imposed constraints or resistance to the truth that you know. This is your chance to develop that project you have been thinking about, embark on that adventure you have dreamed of going on, and take risks in initiating what your intuitive self has been telling you to do.
As this prospect becomes increasingly visible and real, doubts and uncertainties may arise. But rest assured – just as dawn inevitably turns into day, by heeding your inner guidance, you will succeed.
Need to take some time for solitude, preferably in silence. Spend the morning, afternoon, or even the entire day by yourself, completely unplanned and unstructured. The bombardment of your senses by the noise and intensity of society leaves you on alert far more than is necessary. The vibration of millions of people’s worry and fear throughout the world can impinge upon you and greatly affect you if you do not honor your need to pull back from time to time.
When you have passed through any self-constructed barriers to enjoying the quiet peace of solitude, it will serve you best if you simply observe the thoughts and emotions that pass through you, especially those that cause shortness of breath or a quickening heartbeat. Remember that isolation is experienced not by choice, but out of fear. When you decide to spend time with yourself in solitude, however, you are choosing to once again find and connect with who you really are.
Fighting or blocking the flow of your Life Force can lead you to feeling spiritually void and disconnected from Source. Just like the metaphor of the river, it does not work to force or fight this compelling movement. When you simply pay attention and observe the flow, it becomes easier to navigate your experiences and see what lies ahead, or at least get a sense of what is to come by the ever-changing geography that unfolds as you cruise along.
Your resistance is hampering your ability to make a choice in this matter. Surrender to the movement of Life, be grateful, and you will see the signs along the shore and in the river itself that offer you clues about what direction your egoless Self is to be making. Go with the flow is more than a trite aphorism here. It is essential that you do so now. Breathe, relax, and you will know.

Your thoughts must travel through your heart. If your action began with attunement to the “I Am” mind of the all-perfect universe, then what is coming to you now should be plenty of what you want.
If you find yourself with plenty of disappointment, it is time to look to your thoughts again and into your heart. Did you set out to achieve a goal your heart was not into? Did you override deep feelings within? We’re your goals overlooking the needs of others? Are there unkind words now piercing your heart and limiting your vision? Listen.
Words can be stab words (s-words) or salve words – “I don’t like you,” or “I forgive you.” Your sword (words) can cut away the problem or wound the one you are experiencing the problem with. Pay attention. Aim to foster love.
It is a time of victory and peace. Those aspects of yourself that you were courageous enough to bring through by accepting them yourself have been accepted by the world. You have captured the dream. You are in a stage of equilibrium. Relax and enjoy.
Your relationship, career, or artistic expression has been accepted by the important others in your life. You have withstood the challenge and gained in strength. Conflicts are resolved. You are deemed worthy. You now have the raw materials, basic setup, or opportunity you have wanted to enable yourself to continue to higher levels of expertise. Your confidence and abilities have increased. That which you have held dear is yours. Take it all in.
You have earned the title Sage or time Genius. You are a visionary who has lived fully and well, the artist at life itself. Your works will last long beyond your own physical life and thus are immortal. You are passing on the pipe now, handing down the wand. This may be in only one area of your life or all of them. You know.
Your vision has brought a portion of your dream to you. But not all forces are yet aligned with your dream. Your own mind may wander from your vision. You may have friends or relatives who disprove. The world may not currently accept what you have to offer. It is time to face these things and lure the universe to accommodate you.
Holding the highest good that you can imagine in mind, begin to enter the unknown. Whether you are engaged in a hunt in the primeval forest or entering into a new marriage or a new career, you are stepping alone into a force field much larger than yourself. You are seeking only one prize, the cherished central key to your dream. Perhaps it is a person’s ongoing love, maybe a position where your creative works will be recognized and encouraged, or an inner step of development that you have been longing to achieve. In any case, you must use your personal talents to guide the dearly desired toward you.
Your fears will rise up. Your expectations that others should already be attuned to your needs will be confronted. You are alone and small in a field of seeming opposition. It is time to go with your gifts, pull out your talents and use them, however meager you think them to be. This is what the universe is asking of you now. Trust the higher self.
Give it your all. This is the egos battle to transcend its boundaries. It is a time of interpersonal breakthrough and growth. You are coming to terms with life around you. This is a creative conflict or the therapy stage of a relationship, a cleansing intensive. All your Energy is called forth to empower you.
It is time to await opportunity expectantly or to wander seeking pieces of the dream. You are probably engaged in fantasy and longing during this period. You may even feel a craving for something you cannot quite define. There may be periods of melancholy due to the sense of uncertainty in your life right now. Flow with them. Watch them pass.
You will reach fulfillment on the path Creator laid before you. Trust enough to take the first step. Let yourself be guided by dreams and visions. Look for signs. Trust your inner response. Follow that which calls you at the deepest level; respond to that which creates all-engrossing enthusiasm. Let the universe lead.
You are now a co-creator , taking part in the planetary transformation now taking place. Self and world are one being, breathing one life. You are the Dancer holding wands of male and female life force in perfect balance. The polarities within the self have been recognized and brought into a conscious creative working relationship. There is a synthesis, crystallization, perfection, stability, all within the greater flow. You move consciously with the cosmos, understanding your place in time.
The Dancer: I dance freely and with power, for I have faced the death of all that flows through me. In other words, I have transcended possession and desire for results. My actions are based on the fullness of the moment rather than on sacrifice for the future. I understand that now is all futures. I therefore live in death. It is death as a state of constant peace and surrender to what is. Thus, death is the ultimate balance during life. I have united polarities of existence. As you approach the understanding of this within yourself, the world is yours. In Earth, I am through you.
Command:(The Emperor) I am the Empowerment/Chief, creator of the overall structure that takes into account the many abilities, talents and experiences you have discovered within and relates them to the worlds needs. Through the Empress/Bounty in yourself, you learned of these gifts in your being. Now, through me, you will learn how to give them physical form.
You have journeyed as the Fool/Seed, willing to take a risk to move forward. Then, as a Magician/Resourceful One, you saw the tools you have to use along the way. As the High Priestess/Seeker, you realized your responsibility for that which you experience. At the same time, along the way, you discovered an abundance of good ideas, high goals, and personal ambitions. You experienced the bountiful feeling of the Empress when you saw the abilities, talents, and knowledge that have been planted in your consciousness. Now it is time to find a structure that can allow this whole Self to come through in fullness.
Your thoughts and images dictate your reality. You must take command now. It is time to make decisions that benefit your whole being and that of the Earth, your dwelling place. I tell you, you are the maker of your personal law. The definitions of the meaning of your experiences constitute (make into law) suggestions that are accepted, without reservation, by your consciousness. You define what you see, many times without thinking. Realize, you have choice in your definition, in your response, to any situation. This is your point of power.
Affirmation: I now create the structures through which all of my gifts will be actualized. I am the governor of my world. I am the ruler of my life. From Limitless Spirit, I draw all things needed for right action.
