The barriers between you and your greater good are not barriers in themselves. They are things of thought. It is because of this that all things are possible to faith. Jesus summed up the whole proposition when he said, "It is done unto you as you believe." In interpreting this saying, however, you must pause after the word as.
Our real existence is as Spirit, and only in the degree that we perceive our real existence as Spirit, do we drop the false sense of life as material. Then we see that the structural life of man, animal, and plant is but the false sense of existence; that our concern for the so-called necessities of material living has been unnecessary; that although the beauties we behold all hint at God's creation, they are not that spiritual and perfect creation; that the sick, aging, dying appearances are not at all a part of real life.
When you look up at the clear sky at night, you may easily realize a truth at once utterly simple and extraordinarily profound. What is it that you see? The moon, planets, stars, the luminous band of the Milky Way, perhaps a comet or even the neighboring Andromeda Galaxy two million light years away. Yes, but if you simplify even more, what do you see? Objects floating in space. So what does the universe consist of? Objects and space.
We're here to find that dimension within ourselves that is deeper than thought. This teaching isn't based on knowledge, on new interesting facts, new information. The world is full of that already.

Certainty comes from only one place: the recognition of patterns. So when a person or society has recognized a pattern as great as all of Creation, there is great certainty and centeredness and there is great Peace of Mind." - Ian Xel Lungold
May 2011 arrives with a bundle of energy that may snarl any plans you have for peace, harmony, beauty and elegance as the cosmos will be rolling up its sleeves to feverishly attempt to put into play any initiations you might have missed during April. Consciousness levels are alive, awake and running in high gear so the Light will demand that you take responsibility for, among other things, healing your karmic, ancestral and soul lineage.
When was the last time you thought of yourself as a gift? (Have you ever?) Not the arrogant swagger of one who wants others to regard him/her as "God's gift to the world," but rather a humble recognition and acceptance of oneself as a divine creation and an instrument of Spirit.
"During these accelerated times of epoch-making change, it is more important than ever that you strive to increase your radiance quotient and to Shine your Light. You must endeavor to combine the vibrations of unconditional love with the desire for Self remembrance." - Archangel Michael thru Ronna Herman
