We're feeling like we're in the land of the obvious and looking for a clue. Just when we are sure that we finally know what we are doing we find out that everything has changed. After months or years of working on ourselves, do we feel any differently than before? Maybe we don't because it has taken us such a long time to get here that we have completely forgotten the person we used to be, and maybe that is a good thing. I, for one, am glad to be beyond the fear, doubt, confusion and uncertainty that I used to have.
The difference between God the Creator and Infinite Being is one of degree. In Western culture, we think of God as active, as the Creator, as being aware of everything that we do. However, the ultimate state of original consciousness is a state of unchanging perfection. As an infinite awareness or beingness, Infinite Being is behind all things.
I trust that you are having a wonderful week as we move deeper into the 8th month of the year. Two-thirds of 2010 is now nearly behind us (has that gone fast, or what???) and it may be a good time to reassess how this tenth year of the New Millennium has been going for you-and what you want to do between now and January 1 to complete the plans and keep the promises you made to yourself last New Year's Eve.
My dear friends, we love you so very much. So many of you want so much more in your lives and dear ones, that is fine, but realize what your soul wants, always and forever more, when you are on this earth and beyond, is to experience an expansion of God's love flowing through your existence. Everything you want on earth, at its deepest level, is an expression of that desire.
Beloved child of light. You struggle and it moves us. We see your devotion and your desire to be of service, to fulfill your purpose and your function; your destiny, and we are here to encourage you to KNOW that all is well within the plan for your own life in this Now-moment on earth! Do not be afraid or discouraged; there is no need.
The opulence, the prosperity, the role of Creator-ship that you so seek is within the cellular structure of your being. It is not housed in a thought, it is not housed in a meditation, it is not housed in a way of life. It resides within all potential tapped and untapped deep within the multi-dimensional structure that you exist within.
When your heart feels hardened, put your hand over your heart. When you place your hand knowingly on your heart to melt the hardness, you will begin to feel the hardness melting. Yes, put your hand over your heart with pure intention, and your hand and your intention will do your bidding. Whatever the situation, you do want to have the tightness in your heart lessened. It is going to leave anyway. Whatever event seemingly hardened your heart would fade eventually anyway, so make it sooner.
The intense energies of the past two months have felt like being in the ocean with wave after rolling wave of energy coming at us. Sometimes we can dive into the waves and let them roll over us and other times we get tumbled around in the white water; not knowing which way is up. When I was a child, my father taught my sisters and I how to swim in the ocean. He always cautioned us to never turn our back on the waves. To always be ready for the next set.
Question: Why are some Paths so seemingly complex, and time-intensive and others so seemingly simple (Advaita Vedanta) whilst the "goal" is the same? Why am I attracted to different Paths, and how can I focus on what is True?
Every aspect of our life, with each lifetime, is an opportunity for us to remember who we are within the context of our power, love and divinity. We don't enter the world as powerless humans, we enter it as humans who do not remember their power. Then we experience a series of lessons whose purpose is to help us reconnect to our power and use it to make powerful decisions and choices. To do this we have countless teachers whose role in our life is to assist in the re-birthing process.
