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.
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.
Jesus was placed upon the earth as an example of what mankind can be, what mankind will be. He is an example of what we are each evolving towards. His love and his energy is perfect and pure. It is what we work towards. When we speak of “perfect ourselves for God” we are speaking of feeling love for all without conditions. This involves the total surrender of the ego. How could it not? With the ego in place, we perceive attack. We feel that those whose behavior is a bother to us are acting such to cause us pain, irritation, and bother. This is most often not the actual case though. This is only our perception of the case. We are conditioned to believe that we are number one, the center of everything, the most important object in our own universe. When we accept oneness, wholeness, we glimpse how much this is not true. We discover how our actions affect others. We become mindful. Likewise, we discover that the bothersome acts of others are not geared towards or directed at us. They are simply the reaction of our ego trying so hard to maintain a statu-quo. We invent ourselves in such and such a way. We tell ourselves that we are only truly true, only truly authentic when certain conditions are in place. Then these conditions are upset, disrupted, so we view those doing the disrupting as a problem. But this is false. We still are who we are. We are now only reacting to this other situation. Go inside and hold tight to that core you within, and no outside influences will affect you. We are only affected by our reactions. Our reactions are from the mind. Our mind will tell us this and that about a situation. But this is only our mind. In our heart and our spirit, we know something different to be true. But as long as we give our mind control, we will be at its mercy. Remember, our thoughts create our reality. As long as our thoughts create a reality of attack and of battle, we will live an existence of attack and battle. If we shift to an attitude of harmony and balance, our thoughts will create a reality of harmony and balance. If we have trouble with this, if it is hard for us to do, we need only ask for help, we need only pray and then silence our mind to hear the guidance we are being provided.
Visualize the sky. See yourself flying through it. Feel yourself unshackled and light. Imagine yourself floating upward, ascending lighter than air. Become one with the clouds, unconcerned with earthly concerns. Above it all. This is perfection, grandness, happiness and contentment. This is feeling right. Feeling good. This is to be unconcerned with those things that simply do not matter. This is getting over it. This is embracing perfection. This is accepting your higher purpose, your karmic duty, your birth right and your birth vision. This is to achieve enlightenment for only when you are made light, can you ascend, can you float, can you become as a cloud, unconcerned with all that is petty and mundane upon the earth. Visualize this. Become it. Integrate it into your meditation. In time, it will simply be who you are, what you are, as you are.
Now you can ascend. Fly. Fly. Fly. Do so with joy and peace in my heart. No shackles. No fear. No commitments. No burdens of the heart. Only what is in your own best interest. Life as it should be. Life as it is meant to be. Life in accordance with what you have been working this lifetime to achieve. Forward movement. Forward momentum. No back- tracking. No traversing old territory you have already absorbed the lessons of. No more muck. No more mire. Only the sky. Not even the sky is the limit.
