My dear friends, we love you so very much. You are all going through tremendous transformations as your Mother earth continues to grow, expand, and insist on her own evolution. Each one of you is digging deep within to see what you want in your lives and what you do not - you are evaluating your material possessions, your beliefs, your relationships, you careers, indeed your entire life. It may seem as if you feel either waves of gratitude and/or waves of discontentment.
My dear friends, we love you so very much. When we look at each and every one of you we see precious souls. We do not see mistakes, problems, issues, etc. Instead we see beautiful beings of light who are here to explore and experience a reality called earth in your eternal journey and exploration of love. We do not see anything wrong with you ever.
A Harvard University study published in 2008 found the first compelling evidence that the Relaxation Response (RR) – the physiological response to meditation, yoga, tai chi, Qi Gong or repetitive prayer – affects our genes. Nineteen adults were long-term daily practitioners of various RR techniques, 20 were trained in RR eliciting techniques (breathing, mantra and mindfulness meditation) for 8 weeks, and 19 served as controls.
The Creator often sends additional help to us, the students of Classroom Earth, in our evolution towards spiritual growth. The most well-known example is Jesus, who was sent here to liberate humanity’s heart from the suppressive, archaic order which existed at the time.
Does it feel like time is moving too fast for you now? Do you feel disconnected and detached from the world at times? Are you trying to assimilate the changes happening within and around you but they are happening too quickly? Have you noticed how people are becoming empowered and are suddenly rallying together against institutions and beliefs that they once didn't have any opinions about or couldn't be bothered to rise up against?
There came a time in the universe for many beings to come in to Earth, and so a great line formed on the other side of the veil. Many people got ready to come in and said, "It looks like it is going to happen. We are all going in here." And all the people who thought they could make a difference got in line, ready to take a turn in a body.
With spiritual faith, your heart and mind open up and guide you in your search for personal truth. Faith in the spirituality of life is what makes your spiritual path possible. Faith may sound like a form of belief, but belief is actually a fixation upon a version of the truth. When a belief becomes rigid, seeking and growth are not possible.
As you examine your lives, realize that each and every action has merit. Each and every word you utter can be uttered with love and consciousness, or uttered carelessly. Like the leaves drift on the wind to land in places the tree may never see, so too your words, deeds, and actions will land in various ways that you cannot imagine. Send beauty out into the world dear friends. Send love.
This week the sun crossed over the equator heralding the arrival of Fall, we experienced one of Nature's phenomena, the Autumnal Equinox, when the northern and southern hemispheres receive the same amount of sunlight and the day and night are of equal length. As the long summer days (northern hemisphere) are transformed into the shorter days of Fall and Winter, Nature slows down, shedding and releasing.
Yesterday Michael and I attended the memorial service of a good friend's dad who died suddenly while helping a neighbor with a project at his home. The service was moving and sad and inspiring all at the same time. Of course his family and his loved ones are reeling from their unexpected loss. There's nothing more painful than losing someone you love.
