Pay attention to what you feel in your heart. This is fundamental. This is your truth. What is it that you are doing when you feel a surge of energy generating outward from your heart? What is it that you are engaged in? You are reaching others in your way. Your way is not a pre-blazed path. You are blazing your own path, and in so doing, you are reaching the right people. You cannot reach the life of everybody, nor should you try. All you can do is continue to express your star quality, to shine, and allow those who benefit from you be drawn to you and to find you. Don’t try to reach these. Just be who you are without hesitation or procrastination and those who will benefit will find you and become fixed in your orbit. The more you endeavor to shine, the more you will find this to be true. Continue as you have been. This is what you should put your energies towards. Steady momentum will grow. Seek no accolades. Seek no followers. Do not dwell in or be influenced by the ego. Do for yourself. Engage in no competitions. Just be and allow others to find you. Do this and allow for the amazement that will follow. Although no accolades are sought, appreciation will be found. Let this be your reward. It is a noble and good reward, as you will see.
We are the chosen ones to be on the planet at this time in the unfolding of history. We are on the ones experiencing and bringing about the changes that create the earth as a Golden Sphere. The earth now becomes a Golden Sphere where ALL are enlightened. This is true! Experience those around and celebrate together as eyes are opened and spirits are awakened spontaneously.
This is the new meaning of life. This is what “Heaven on Earth” truly means. This is how the Earth will now be experienced. It is rapidly shifting into a true paradise. What is the meaning of “Paradise?” Paradise means all beings living in harmony with each other, celebrating one another’s uniqueness and accomplishments. To appreciate, and see through the veil of one another. Paradise means ego falls away and now we are truly one.
Ego is a barrier between the Oneness of beings. Paradise is this ego barrier crumbling and falling and now we experience the intrinsic truth of who we are collectively. This is the Golden Age. It is the intrinsic knowing and appreciating each and every being on the planet. This is Paradise.
The shift to this paradigm is officially underway. We are each agents of this shift by simply allowing for it. This is good. This has been worth the strife and the wars and the turmoils that brought us here. Embrace. Celebrate. Appreciate. This is when it all really gets good.
You all in your way brought us here, so now you will be rewarded with an overwhelming sense of peace and contentment and spontaneous understanding of what is real and true about others around you.
We speak of veils being lifted between us and the other side, but these veils are being lifted from between one another because this divinity and grace we speak of are within us all. Now, veils gone, we see and appreciate the inner truth of one another. This is the Golden Age. Here we are.
Find a quiet spot near the ocean. If this is not possible, visualize the ocean in your mind. Feel your spirit expand outward to the water in front of you. Feel your spirit spreading over the water. Feel it sinking into the depths before you. Know in your heart that your spirit, in all actuality, is large enough to fill that entire ocean.
That it is in your heart is the only thing that matters. When communicating with spirit, when praying, when showing gratitude to the divine, it need not be said out loud. It certainly need not be said out loud in the presence of others who will hear you. To say it out loud for others to hear only serves your own infantile ego. If it is in your heart, it is felt. Be leery of those who speak boastfully of their spiritual ideas. True spirituality, true connection to the divine has no attachment to the ego. True spirituality is one on one communication between spirit and human. It does not need validation. It does not need attention from others.
Imagine Silence to be a great hall, a giant cathedral, a divine meeting place, a great museum. Enter this space with reverence. Appreciate its beauty. Stand in awe of its splendor. Explore with respect, displaying the dignity that such sacredness is entitled to. Discover what is to be found. Enjoy what is to be found. Enjoy what is to be offered. Open your eyes to this space. Open your ears. There is such grandness here. This place is good. This place is perfect. Why not leave it as it is? Why bring your own objects with you to fill it? Why use it as your personal storage space, filling it with your junk and your residue of pointless thought forms and old attitudes? Why come into this space with a preconceived idea of what you hope to find there? If you bring anything with you into this divine space, you are degrading it of its divinity, turning it instead into a dreadful den of the mundane. You are reducing it to the nothingness of “just anywhere.” Enter Silence with reverence. Appreciate this space. Enjoy it. It is a place and a space for knowledge, not just another place for you to expand your junk collection. This is verbal junk. The junk so any humans can’t live without. This is the display of the ego, the desperate grab for validation. Silence does not validate. Silence is a realm. It allows you to explore your inner rooms, the corners and crannies of your soul. You must be light to make this exploration. You cannot do it with the weight and burdens of thoughts and words weighing you down. Leave Silence as is. Do not fill it. It needs not to be filled. Explore. Enjoy. Appreciate.
Often, we say that life will be better when… be better when… we wait until conditions are such that we believe contentment and fulfillment will follow. We look beyond what is right here right now to fill in gaps that we perceive. These gaps are akin to emptiness that some future event will fill in and bring with it perfection and complete contentment. As long as we continue to do this, there will always be something missing. As long as there is something missing, we will never allow ourselves to experience true happiness. What we must do is take the power out of someday, tomorrow, the future, and recognize the perfection of life right now this minute. Why surrender the power of this minute and hand it over to some unseen, unknown, unknowable yet to be? The future doesn’t know you the way you know yourself in the moment right here, right now. Why hand over control of something as important as your happiness to the stranger that is “tomorrow?” Recognize right now, the beauty and perfection of right now. This is your gift to yourself. Keep it. It is yours.
“Perfection” is impossible to achieve, for it is based solely on an intellectualized idea of what we hope for in a situation. The minute this strays from our projection, we experience disappointment. So what is “perfection?” What is “perfect?” These words are simply ideas. They have no intrinsic meaning or value. The quest for perfection will always dead end in disappointment. Save yourself this heartache by accepting things as they are. Develop criteria for what is acceptable and unacceptable based on your own value system and view things from within this range. “Perfection” creates rigidity. Soften. Do not be so rigid. Allow for other ideas to influence your view and your attitude. “Perfection” dilutes. “Perfection” deteriorates. It is the erosion of the soul. Don’t seek it. Don’t thrive for it. Just be.
Somebody must do the grunt work. Somebody must do the mundane tasks that keep society afloat. Not everybody is here to “succeed”. Not everybody is here to rise above. Some really are here just to pour the drinks. Just to push the buttons. Just to assemble the pieces. Just to pick up the trash. Not that these people do not serve their purpose, mind you. After all, somebody’s got to pour the drinks. Somebody’s got to push the buttons. Somebody’s got to assemble the pieces. Somebody’s got to pick up the trash. It’s like an ant colony, isn’t it? There are those who simply do the work so that the others can flourish. It is simple, but it is true. Not everybody is here to be impressive, but to do the work that keeps the impressive going, so they can focus on their contributions to the world, society, and the universe without worrying about pouring the drinks, pushing the buttons, assembling the pieces or picking up the trash. It’s what they were born for. It’s why they are here. It’s not that this is all they can be, but this is what their life is about. We all must have an unimpressive life time. There are lessons to be gained in this subjugation. There is energy to be absorbed that will lead to eventual perfection. Don’t ever judge a person by their position in life, or what you feel their life is or isn’t about.. Just because they are unimpressive to you does not mean they are unimportant, unless you want to pour the drinks, push the buttons, etc. Appreciate what these people are going through and appreciate what their life is all about. Stay focused on your own life and your own issues. Let these people focus on theirs.
(This is a thought that came to me going for a walk in Zhangjiagang, China and watching the street workers doing their jobs picking up trash)
We all have our protective outer shells. This is our default setting, what we revert to when we can think of no better words or actions to speak or perform. These are represented by the same patterns we repeat over and over, and often, over again. These are represented by the same verbal crutches and the same jokes we always go back to. This is stagnation and redundancy. We must strive to get past this shell of protectiveness to the truth of our self just beneath it. Our mind will assume that what is real and true about ourselves, our authentic selves, is vulnerable, fragile, and in need of protection. So it sets up these barriers to protect it. The problem becomes that these barriers became way too solid, impenetrable. Now our true self is walled in. It is a light that needs to shine, not just shine for its own sake, but to shine out to the world and be seen, be felt. We must soften this protective barrier by focusing inward to our truth and authenticity. Don’t pay heed to the outer shell. Pay heed to the light it encases. Focus on this light. Acknowledge this light. Enhance this light. In doing so, it will grow stronger, shine brighter. By doing so it will cause the outer shell to crack and to crumble. Now our truth can be known. Our light can shine as bright as it was always meant to.
It is so that we design the lifetime we will live based on the lessons we must learn in order to gain and achieve perfection. What though, is the situation when we know we are living more than one lifetime within a single incarnation? Are each of these lifetimes within this single incarnation planned out? Yes, they are, and know this, to live multiple lifetimes within a single incarnation is a unique, but not unheard of thing.
This is a sign of high advancement in the karmic journey. It is to accelerate the final few stages of karmic perfection. It is what one often does when they know they are enlightened and are in the final stretch to perfection.It is not for everybody and it is too much to have for those who are early in their karmic advancement. This is so.
It is to be noted that each lifetime within the incarnation is prepared and planned for via in progress reviews. This is much like a life review between incarnations, but takes place while the incarnation is in progress. Often, this will be consciously perceived as very vivid and recurring dreams. This is not to be pass/fail or right from wrong, but rather what is necessary? What has been achieved and what lessons need to be still accomplished?
In so determining these things, the next set of circumstances can be created and you will be synchronisticaly led to them. Sometimes it may be that you must learn to master and come to acceptance with a particular emotion. Maybe you had the opportunity in the past to do this, but you shirked away from it. Well, okay, now another opportunity is hereby created to once again tackle this.
How will you face it this time? Will you conquer it, or must another opportunity be created again? Face it and conquer so that you may move on to others. Do it now and save yourself the trouble of another earthly incarnation. If you do must or choose to come back in another form, let that lifetime be to forge new ground, conquer new tasks, learn new lessons. Do your best this lifetime to get the most you can out of this lifetime.
How do you know what a situation is designed to teach you? This is easy. What is the dominate feeling you have? Is it reasonable? Can you identify where it is coming from? If you can feel it but cannot immediately identify its source, part of the lesson is to trace it to where it is beginning from. Develop empathy. Employ compassion. Trace it. Follow it. Understand it.
Are there forces seemingly at work that keep repeating over and over and will not disappear? Address them. Again, follow them to the source and address what they are nagging at you to address. If you do not do so now, you will have no choice but to do so later. Might as well get it over with now, right?
Examine the repeating patterns of your life. These have embedded within them the lessons you must learn. Face them head on now without fear. It is to your ultimate karmic benefit to do so. It is so.
