The More I Learn ….

The more I learn about this world in which we live, the more I realize most of us are slaves to the capitalistic society we have been told to desire. I am reminded of the Ten Commandments given to Moses. “Thou shalt not covet” takes over most of the rules given to us, but most of us have forgotten that. That’s what makes us slaves.

Let’s start at the end. We shouldn’t want to have what others have — your neighbor’s wife or your neighbor’s property. Stealing, adultery and killing fall into that category, for when someone steals or kills it is many times in order to gain something for his/herself. And adultery, well … that comes without saying. The “graven images” people have as idols are mainly imagined human shortcuts to the divine image of God or the Supernatural, so it, too, is our desire to own something others have.

What’s my point, you may ask.

We are victims to our own desires to get, keep, and own. I know people with generous pocketbooks who complain about not having enough. These past few months, I have learned the truth. I lost my desire to own or to get. I lost my desire to watch TV, where many people clearly desire what others have. I am learning to release my fears and my shackles, but I still feel the tug many times.

Most times I feel as free as I can feel, although I am still chained to the cage of humanity. Especially when I see how the holiday season affects people and their need to have and to own. Think about it. You purchase something you really want on credit, then you have to pay off that purchase by working hard for another person who owns you until you no longer need to make money.

Recently, I re-watched Cloud Atlas, where a character referenced the movie Soylent Green where Charlton Heston makes the admission that “Soylent Green is made out of people …. next thing they’ll be breeding us like cattle for food.”

Now, I’m not trying to spread fear about some government conspiracy. I’m trying to spread my belief that our sci-fi writers have feared that one day our weaknesses will be our downfall. If we become complacent with our desire for things, we will always be slaves to our own weaknesses.

Make a pact with yourself to release your fears and weaknesses. Accept them and embrace your strengths, the strengths that need nothing belonging to others. The strengths of love and fortitude and divinity.

Remember, we are divine light beings living a physical, human experience. Once we accept our own divinity, we will be closer to shaking off our human shackles in order to step into the New Jerusalem spoken of in the bible.

Much love to you, my friends. May this holiday season wake up the divine in you,

Can You Hear Me Now?

Today’s blog is like a journal. Please forgive my personal musings…

I rarely remember my dreams. It used to bother me. I have friends who remember such amazing details from their dreams that it’s like they’re living a movie. They even have dreams about me. One friend dreamed that I couldn’t remember my dreams because I was “like the dead” … as if I was fully there in the afterlife in my sleep.

In fact, I’ve had a feeling for a very long time that I don’t remember my dreams because I’m working.

Another friend had a dream where real angels, like those with wings, visited him and told him that what I was doing (the road trip) was okay and was part of the plan. We would be protected and the angels agree with my plans.

The last dream I remember having was shortly before I left for my road trip this summer. I was the granddaughter of a property owner. When a prince visited, my grandfather allowed me to go with the prince on a search around the outskirts of our property to search for something precious that would be in a box.

I carry that dream with me still. That search around the outskirts of our property, I believe, is my road trip that began this summer. The prince in the dream is El Juglador, who has become my new teacher. Maybe my Dragonfly Teacher was the grandfather in that dream, because the dragonfly led me to my new teacher.

That’s it. That’s the last dream I remember. It doesn’t bother me anymore, though. Oh, don’t get me wrong. I still try to remember my dreams, but I’m satisfied with the feelings I wake up with. If I went to bed worried about something and wake instead feeling safe and secure about it, I take it as a message from my higher self.

I’m okay with it because I feel more connected to my Spirit friends than I ever have before. I don’t need to be asleep to hear them.

What I need you, my readers, to understand is this – you, too, are connected to that other dimension. Maybe it’s through your dreams. Write them down. Maybe it’s through that nagging voice in your head that tells you to talk to your former best friend. You should. Maybe it’s through the music that seems to be talking to you. It is.

We are all looking for that something that seems to be missing in our lives. Sometimes, we wish we could talk to our friends and family who have crossed the veil and are no longer living on the same 3D Earth where we live. We can.

Think of it like that old Verizon cell phone commercial – “Can you hear me now?” See, the thing is, they CAN hear us. We’re the ones with the lousy reception.

I got a new tattoo before I left on my road trip. It was designed by a former student who listened to what I wanted. It’s a bracelet on my right wrist. On the top of my wrist, an infinity symbol with a red rose sitting on top of it. On the underside, a pair of angel wings.

It is my mantra – I am ephemeral (like a rose), I am eternal (infinity), I am divine (angel wings.)

I tell you because I firmly believe we are all divine. Our home is that world where our essence is light. Most of us, however, are so stuck in this matrix of our human existence that we can’t see the glory of our being.

Close you eyes and imagine, for once at least, yourself as a being of light. Feel the love of the universe in your heart. Then accept it.

We are light beings living a human existence. Make your life truly divine.

Much love to you, my friends.

The Perfection of God

Have you ever watched a flock of birds? I mean really watch them as they dive around and over the intersection, knitting an imaginary blanket over the drivers stuck at the red light. It’s a work of art and an example of a miracle. Each individual bird moves in harmony with their neighbor as if all are part of one large mind. Some of the latest scientific theories explain this as quantum entanglement. That’s one way to explain it, if you’re a rocket scientist. I prefer to call this, as in this image of starlings in flight …

 the perfection of God.

I wonder …

Animals live in harmony with nature as they create the symphony of Gaia.

It’s a marvelous work of art performed for our eyes and senses every moment of every day.

Too bad most of us can’t be part of the symphony.

Have you ever felt off – you know, something just doesn’t feel right? The way I see it, most humans are out of sync with Gaia. That’s why we feel out of balance and uncomfortable around nature.

The way I see it, humans are a virus, or a cancer. We tend to metastasize and kill complete sections of Gaia’s beauty.

Wouldn’t it be wonderful if we could all learn how to make our dreams come true without the jarring tones of the materialistic, unnatural existence that leaves pellets of cancer cells like excrement in a chicken coop.

Today’s post is brief, but thought-provoking. How about it? Let’s try to add a brush stroke of our own color onto the canvas of Gaia’s life.

Namaste, my friends.

We Are One Under The Same Rainbow

Namaste.

We toss the word around yoga and spiritual circles, but do you really know what it means? Believe it or not, it’s listed in Urban Dictionary:

Namaste – an ancient Sanskrit greeting still in everyday use in India and especially on the trail in the Nepal Himalaya. Translated roughly, it means “I bow to the God within you,” or “The Spirit within me salutes the Spirit in you” – a knowing that we are all made from the same One Divine Consciousness.

I ask you what that means to you, dear reader. To me it means that every single person I meet every day is a part of the One Spirit of God just as I am. In the real world of human 3D, that can be difficult to accept because that means that the jerk who just cut you off on the highway is also a part of you.

That is the key to world peace, though. This philosophy holds that we are all connected. Some describe it as a red thread that unites us to each other, others describe it as the ever-winding roots of a common tree.

Humans are headstrong, though. We believe what we believe, but are unwilling to open our minds to possibilities that make us question ourselves.

I see things a little differently. When the jerk on the road cuts me off (and I’m in the at-peace frame of mind,) I remember the times I have cut people off on the road. My reasons were seldom vindictiveness. Usually, it was because I was so caught up in my human matrix that I wasn’t paying attention to the drivers around me. At other times, I was so caught up in my reality that I thought it was more important for me to get to where I was going.

You see, I understand that sometimes I, too, can be that jerk on the road. And I am ashamed.

The key to living together in peace, I believe, is for us to understand that it is the human matrix that separates us. It binds us to our own reality, insisting that our truth is more true than someone else’s. Our matrix is the tie that binds us to a life of empty expectations and heartless hearts. Our escape is to realize that the rainbow that arcs overhead after a rainstorm is the same for us as it is for the person in the next car, only our connection to reality can change our perception.

Traffic rainbow

After all, Jesus did say in Mark 12:31 that the greatest commandment is to “’Love your neighbor as yourself.’ There is no commandment greater than these.” That is my favorite quote because I understand that loving others is the key to abolishing what separates us. Once we live this truth, we will find peace within ourselves.

Consider this truth, my friends. When you find yourself judging the man across the street, instead take a breath and realize that you control the effect he has on you. In the tree analogy, when his root threatens to choke yours, redirect your root so that he has no effect on you.

Yes, I understand this is easier said than done, but, after all, we are here to learn and live with free will.

What will you choose?

I repeat, Namaste, my friends, because you and I are truly one under the one true Source that is our God.
