Creating Miracles

It may be easier than you THINK! You are already a Master creator even if you do not always “know” or “understand” this with your 3 dimensional, ego driven mind. Your human limitations do not make this an untruth, regarding your Miracle maker status. OK, what am I speaking about? It is my “Knowing” (and belief) that we are spiritual beings having a human experience. Our souls/spirits are much greater than our limited human bodies and mental consciousness. We come into our human lives to have human “dramas” and our human lives are filled with lessons. We are testing out what our souls are learning in the higher realms of spiritual consciousness. With that said, we are “living” in our human dramas in a “created” environment which would look like a movie set to our souls as seen from the view point of the higher realms. We are limited by our human belief in linear time and three dimensional space which exist so our human minds can “understand” the Earthly human world we are living within (in our human incarnations.)

Wow, that is a lot to try to take in… OR, perhaps this is a concept that you already “Know” or have “Remembered.” Our human minds have difficulty finding words to describe the higher realms which are far beyond our human thinking… And, this is where our creation of miracles comes in. Our Universe is a miracle born out of Divine Spirit. But, our human lives are filled with 3 dimensional forms and concepts which come from “Our” consciousness. We are the master creators who construct our lives, our world, and unconsciously (to our human minds,) our lessons. Our souls in the higher realms have agreed to the lessons before we incarnate but our birthing into human form has created a veil of amnesia so we can bump into our lessons and test ourselves and our “learnings.”

You are a Miracle! You are Loved and Supported by the Divine Spirit! You are having a human experience which, at a much higher level, you have agreed to have. AND, you have created the life and the world which you have chosen to engage… Your lessons and your life are PERFECT! You may want to judge these as difficult but you were supposed to live your human life and figure your way through this experience. Yes, even if it is brutal and seemingly, unfair. No one ever said life was supposed to be easy or even “nice.” Our human minds want our lives to be easy, or positive, or filled with joy and happiness. You have a choice. You can find “Joy” even within the most challenging experiences. Humans do this all the time. For me, my arm breaking, my wife dying, and my struggles with aging can ALL be known and remembered with the Joy of the spectacular lessons survived.

If you are like me, you learn from the difficult life tests more than the easy experiences which went as “expected.” My stories and my shared learnings are so much more of service when these are attached to the difficult life experiences which I have survived, and learned from. AND, asking for your lessons and then listening (or feeling) for the response from your higher self can open doors when you may only be viewing the pain from a human experience. The death of a loved one fits this well. When my wife transitioned, I knew she was “in a better place” however, I was left in my human life with a vacuum of grief to deal with. Now, I can assist other men who have become widowers to better know or understand the lessons in these difficult human experiences. Everyone of us is unique. Our experiences are unique. However, the support from another person who has learning to share after surviving a similar life experience can help each and everyone involved in this supportive sharing…

Miracles can be born from your conscious expression and then your positive intention. Often it helps to let go of expectations or the “strings attached” to an outcome. If your requests are to be of positive service and for the raising of consciousness of all mankind (and then Universal consciousness,) you will be loved and supported in this requested miracle. Being joyful and unattached to human expectations helps, but can be challenging to find.

You are a Miracle! Thank you for being you. AND, thank you for the service YOU provide. Even the simple act of listening to another soul’s story telling can be of service, both to them and to you. You are Loved!

Thanks for your time and consideration. Your insights and experiences are unique and a blessing, so please share these…

The “Veil” a Perspective

Crossing the Veil is a spiritual concept which may bring you closer to the Divine Spirit or the “Source” or the “Higher Realms”… But, what is the Veil? Why does it keep souls incarnated as humans (or other life forms) from knowing the Higher Realms? I recently heard a presentation by Robert Schwartz who had an interesting perspective regarding the Veil which I had not heard before. Rob Schwartz is a hypnotherapist who has worked with many clients to better connect with and understand their life’s purpose by “examining” the “agreements” regarding coming into their human incarnations. He claims that he has witnessed the Veil as translucent curtain which serves a great purpose. Rob claims that the Veil is a good thing. It creates a barrier to fully knowing who we are (as a perfect soul) and where we come from (in the Higher Realms.) This allows us to ask good questions until we rejoin the “higher realms” where we know everything. The Veil allows us to explore lessons as the learning challenges we are here, in our human lives, to have.

We come into human incarnations to experience the dramas of life on Earth. If we were more fully “Enlightened” in our human lives, we might not get so caught up in the our lives. We might not have to learn that we are perfect, because we are and this would get in the way of the “fun.” We would not have to learn that there is Joy to be found in every experience, even the painful challenges. We would remember and know Unconditional Love. We would know we are supported no matter what we do and not Judged. Life on Earth would not be the “Adventure Travel” experience which it appears, to higher souls, to be. (If the “Veil,” as a barrier to pure consciousness, was not in place for our human minds, we may lose motivation to “do the work” in our current lives…)

The struggles and challenges we have in our human incarnations have great value as learning experiences. We consciously or unconsciously strive for higher consciousness and travel our lives with the goal of “Enlightenment.” If the Veil did not obscure the remembering of the Higher Realms from our human lives, the scavenger hunt we are living would not be so desperate and driven. If life on Earth was so super high in consciousness without the Veil, we would not be given respect and medals for surviving our visit to the Earthly plane (Which is my humor popping through.)

Looking Forward: Your Amazing Contributions

You have an amazing future story! Sure, it may remain unknown to your human mind and difficult to imagine. You have an important role to play!

Though time is a linear construct, YOU are doing amazing things which are changing the world! Yes, YOU! Some readers are not agreeing completely with me. So let me share with you some ideas. Everyone’s life triggers events and changes in the world. No matter how small, future generations will be influenced by your actions or your inaction. Subtle influences can have major and dramatic effects felt by subsequent generations.

Let me offer an example from my life. When I was fairly young, in elementary school, I had a very strong interest in science, especially the natural sciences. Somehow I talked my way into getting a microscope and started looking at stuff. Since I was in a neighborhood with similarly aged kids, I started a “microscope club.” The girl next door joined in, though we did not seem to have a lot in common. Dr. Laurie Green, MD later told me that her participation in backyard science from our club had influenced her. It triggered an interest and love of science for her and she has become a renowned physician in San Francisco. Her work in high level ObGyn surgery has helped many babies, moms, and their families. Perhaps, my shared interest and excitement offered a significant addition to our world. (And, I was “only” a kid with a passion to share…)

Take a few moments and consider the interactions from your human experience which have had an influence upon you. Perhaps it was a difficult challenge you may have had with a parent or sibling. Maybe, it was a “touching” experience which turn into a positive memory. For me, I had a wonderful college professor when I was 20 years old who role modeled what being a great man, and father, was possible. I will never forget this man or the positive directions my life took as a response to our relationship. You have had these interactions and relationships. AND, you can provide these life changing moments for people whom you come into contact with in this life.

History is filled with small gestures which directly or indirectly created amazing things. And, no one of us is too old or too young or too poor to change the lives of the people they interact with as we tumble through our lives. Your brain may not understand the course of events you participate within, so tread as gracefully and as respectfully as you can. Imagine that your role may be a beacon of light that will guide or direct other people on their pilgrimage through life. Even a smile or a sincere “Thank You,” can have a small but positive effect. The simple act of listening and being supportive, at a significant moment, can change the life of the story teller. The act of caring about another human being is an important and needed interaction in our lives.

Share your passion! Support other people’s passion especially if these hold positive promise for our world. You never consciously know what positive outcomes may come from seemingly casual interactions.

Getting back to this post’s theme… Know that the Love you share will spread seeds for pilgrims of the future. No one of us is too small as to not have a possible profound influence, so guide your actions appropriately with Love to maximize the possible positive effects. Even “chance meetings” or interactions can be found to change history, for GOOD and the betterment of all consciousness. You may never know which of these seeds will land and become most fruitful and abundant, so share your Love. You may never fully realize the magnificent role you will play in our Universe.

I repeat, no matter how old or how young you are, your interactions and connections can create significant changes in the world, even for our Universe. By raising your consciousness, all of Universal consciousness is raised. Do your best to remember every person you meet has a perfect soul and we are all on the pilgrimage together…

One last thing… When most fully “enlightened,” you realize that linear time does not exist. The “future” is now. Though your three dimensional mind may not be able to see the future as now, what you do in this moment is the future. Thank you for your profound effect upon all the Universe…

You are a Miracle! Thank you for being you.

Thanks for your time and consideration. Your insights and experiences are unique and a blessing, so please share these…

Time for Grounding

Are YOU spinning like a top? Is life swirling and creating an energetic maelstrom which is blowing you about? Are the multiple life dramas you are working through feeling overwhelming or maybe depressing? Well, welcome to the club! Yup, we are being pushed 24/7 to our limits AND we are feeling it! So, what do you do to get back in control or to mellow out? Recently, I was chatting with a group of people and discussing this common phenomenon and a discussion regarding how best to “Ground Out” came up…

Grounding out suggests that there is an excess of energy (maybe anxiety) within you (your body or your consciousness) and that, like electrical energy, it can be released by grounding into the Earth. Lighting rods offer this grounding to a discharge of electrical energy called lighting… (Your science lesson for today.) But, your release of emotional energy can be very important for this excess energy may distract you and keep you from focusing upon what life requires. So, grounding can be a very important and life preserving endeavor.

Everybody is triggered by their own unique set of circumstances. Everybody holds their stress and anxiety in their own way. And, “letting go” or grounding out will also be a unique experience. So, you will find your own way to do this and perhaps, you may even remember to use these tools/techniques. Using these preventively can become a positive habit which can work to keep you healthy, physically, emotionally, and spiritually. If you do not know how to begin to find your way then I have some suggestions to attempt.

Suggestions:
1. Be present: “in the moment” Easier said than done but well worth practicing. Too often we can find ourselves reliving a moment (of upset or negativity) from a past experience. Or, we can dread an unknown on the horizon off in our future. Enlightenment is often demonstrated by “being” in the present moment which is easier said than done…
2. Breathe (Most important to help find your way back into your body AND the Present Moment) By focusing on an essential physical act and controlling this moment we can lead the body into relaxing and becoming more present. Perhaps, you can attempt to breathe slowly, feel cool air as you inhale, pause a moment, then release/exhale the warmed breath as you slowly and fully exhale. Imagine that as you exhale you can release any excess energy or anxiety, letting it flow out and away. The next cool, soothing inhales can begin to fill you with a calming sense of peace…
3. Yoga or Stretching (releasing built up muscle tension and increases body awareness.) Yes, breathing and slowly stretching to release tension can be a tool for regaining your presence.
4. Meditation or guided relaxations (see Stress Education Center) Slowly and gently focusing on breathing and “letting go” of thoughts can be a wonderful practice. Intuition can be enhanced. Most people can benefit from practicing this long enough to be able to releasing distractions from thoughts drifting through the mind.
5. Walk in Nature (ground out with each step and be “present” to enjoy the miracles you will encounter in a natural setting.) Savoring your moments in nature and then acknowledging your Gratitude for these moments can be very healthy for you and your emotional well being.
6. Stones, Crystals or Minerals (I have a small collection of pocket polished stones. Each has its own energy and purpose. You discover which ones work best for you and your energy.) Every person is attracted to their own required energies and each mineral has a unique signature. So, find the ones that “feel” best for you.
7. Earthy hands on hobby (clay, wood work, natural wool, gardening, petting your pets, etc) The Earth knows what to do with any excess energy. You allow yourself to release this excess energy through connecting with a natural, Earthy endeavor.
8. Absorbing a High Consciousness Story – not too much Drama (We have enough. Taking in the story by reading or viewing from source of higher consciousness is both healing and provides perspective like, “Autobiography of a Yogi“)
9. Hydro therapy: bath, shower, hot tub, swimming, or a walk near a lake-river-ocean
10. Gentle discussion and support from a highly conscious communication partner (again less: drama, interruption, and gossip) Also, gently sharing your story can offer a new perspective on a past moment that you found challenging or brilliantly uplifting… Any grief which comes up, and then out, can be healing. Playing a victim to your grief is not a great long term strategy so explore the amazing Joy found in the “lesson” you have been offered…

AND, spend time in Gratitude! Acknowledge the beauty and the miracles which surround you. Your connection with the Divine Spirit is perfect though the “Veil” may shroud your knowing/remembering of your pure connection to “Source.”

So many more…
Find ways which work best for you. Get a coach if you can not find one that works for you.

Avoid:
1. Coffee/caffeine, for many, sugar or highly processed foods
2. Traffic/Chaos/Excessive Media/DRAMA
3. Television and politics… Loud media grabbing your attention.
4. And, when possible, angry, negative people if you are attempting to ground out…
5. Negative Self-Talk and being stuck in Victimhood
6. Loud or shrill Humanity
7. Outsiders Expectations of you. Internal expectations of yourself also
8. Speeding through life and breath holding. Slow conscious savoring can be good.
All of these are easier said than done. So, consider these strategies and use them as needed for you to feel most present and in control of your consciousness. If you have children share these, best by role modeling…

YOU can do it! NOW, You can remember to do your grounding program regularly, even before you get too “spun out.” Breathe and be Grateful for the Miracles of Life that present themselves and Love freely (without expectations.) AND, be the role model for your children, your spouse, your co-workers, and your family and friends. This will create a healthier environment for all of you…

You are a Miracle! Thank you for being you.

Privacy vs Oneness

Our friend and My mentor, Paula Forget writes:

“The need for privacy comes from fear and a sense of separation. We want to separate ourselves from the whole, to maintain our individual sense of Self, our sense of personal autonomy and control. We fear that we will be compromised by the outside world. We want to keep parts of ourselves secret to protect ourselves from external judgements and acrimonious behaviors. We fear recrimination and injury to our sense of Self and personal identity, personal story, that we identify ourselves with.

On the “other side” of the so-called veil, there is no such thing as privacy. All knowledge, perception, insight understanding of ourselves and others, is clearly visible. You cannot hide anything. Others know you and you know others wholistically: you see them, feel how they feel, understand their thoughts and know them, and much more, all at once. They also experience you the same way. There is no judgement, only understanding. Nothing is hidden or ‘private’ on the other side.

As you develop your higher senses of Love, you will also see people on Earth in the same way. If we all saw each other that way, there would no longer be dishonesty, treachery, deceit and misunderstanding because all thoughts and intentions would be transparent. If you feel fear right now as you consider this, also consider that your human experience would undergo a cathartic transformation. Our old world view and interactions would be transformed. We would see our relationships become more honest and pure, our motives and dreams would be shared in an instant, our ability to experience others hearts would instill an even deeper sense of compassion and love. It is hard to hate someone that you understand.

Yes, this day is at hand! Heaven on Earth is possible. The limits you experience are those you have placed on yourself. Unshield your eyes! It will require all of us to mature and evolve into our realized abilities. It will cause us to examine our personal defenses, perhaps our old history, yet it will also allow us to face life with an open heart as we acknowledge that we each are extraordinary beings, capable of boundless love. That day is at hand! Go forward, express your gifts, love one another. There is much splendor awaiting us all.

Namaste.
From Paula Forget”

Author of: Guided to the Higher Realms

My friend and mentor, Paula Forget, “Knows” about what she writes. Her practices in meditation have allowed her to access the “Higher Realms.” (Read her first book to more fully understand why I say this.) Paula does not lie or exaggerate. She speaks from her experience. When I hear about her adventures in the Higher Realms my perspective expands enormously and I begin to “Remember” what life was like for my spirit between human incarnations. For sure, this is true for you also. AND, we are all in this together! We are One!

You are a Blessing.

You are a Miracle! Thank you for being you.

Looking at Clouds

Have you ever looked at clouds? Of course you have. This morning, shortly after the rising of the sun, I looked to the East and found a mostly blue sky with wispy clouds gently drifting… It made me pause and find gratitude for the gift of the gorgeous miracle of this new day. No one could paint these delicate clouds and do them justice. My eyes behold the subtle beauty playing out high in the atmosphere.

How is this possible? These clouds are so light and delicate. The smile these clouds bring to my face elicits Joy. A great way to start my new day. What other gifts of nature’s beauty will I cross paths with today… Everyday…???

As I stop to think about it, though the act of thinking pulls me out of the “present” as an observer, I want to share this moment with you. So, if you are reading this post I hope a delightful memory dances across your consciousness reminding you of a visual treat laid before you which brings you Joy! Or, better still, go out and find today’s miracle which presents itself for your appreciation and to remind you that each moment in nature is a gift. Embrace it. Meditate upon it. Love it. And then, Share it!

Life is a beautiful Mystery and here for us to find ways to discover ourselves.
As Joni Mitchell wrote in her song “Both Sides Now”:
“I’ve looked at clouds from both sides now
From up and down and still somehow
It’s cloud’s illusions I recall
I really don’t know clouds at all”

You are a Miracle! Thank you for being you.

I am Sad and Depressed Everyday

How would you respond? What words can you convey to be of service? Can you feel empathy?

Comment which was received anonymously from a past blog posting:
“I am extremely sad and depressed everyday. Cry a lot. Think about suicide all the time. As a 54 yr old female, I am wondering how to achieve enlightenment to elevate my soul and spirit…”

How do YOU respond to this comment… So this is the Response from Guidance:

“Thank you for your comment. I am sorry that you feel sad and depressed everyday. Life is a Miracle. Living can be brutal. Perhaps you can set out everyday to find one miracle in your world. Look for it. Find it. Feel it. AND, Know it…
This may be difficult to believe but even though you feel unhappy, you are a Miracle. You are amazing. No one else could do what you do. If you shared your life’s story, people would think that you are a SuperWoman to have survived. You have wisdom to share AND do not miss the opportunity to share your wisdom, even if what you share is what not to do… Your warning may change someone’s life.

By answering your comment, my day has been changed. Thank You.
You are a Blessing!
When possible, find Joy even in the darkest day or the most difficult challenge. This is easier said than done BUT you can get good at this… by… looking for the miracles and the good there is to find…

Please take good care of yourself. I am sending you my love and my thanks.”

Additional thoughts from Guidance:

Most people find times in their human lives which do not feel happy. It is part of our challenge to live as humans in a world which often teaches through pain or fear or anxious uncertainties. Perhaps we survive and feel stronger and more resilient. Perhaps we survive and feel scarred and broken. The difficulties we face are part of the “drama” we sign up for as spiritual beings come to have “human” experiences. And, Pain is real, suffering is optional…

Life has its physical, emotional, and spiritual pain. These lessons are essential. How we deal with our losses, our pains, and our life challenges is an option we have. If you want to carry your victimhood as suffering, you have that as a choice AND as a lesson.

“That which does not kill us, makes us stronger” is attributed to the German philosopher, Friedrich Nietzsche and delivers wisdom worth sharing. (It also reflects upon our life experience as an affirmation of resilience.) No Guide from the Divine ever said that human life would be always easy or fun. The times when we often learn the most are when we are most tested. However, living life in a state of constant sadness or depression is probably not the intention for every soul walking the Earth. We are tested and true “Enlightenment” often includes the ability to find light and joy in every dark corner of our lives. Not as a Pollyannaish response but as a reverence for all lessons, especially the tough ones.

Even the wealthiest humans amongst us can NOT buy eternal happiness or, more importantly, spiritual satisfaction and wisdom with their financial wealth reserves. In fact, for many people, wealth or the desire for wealth can get in the way of the deepest spiritual insights. (Consider the story of Siddhartha.) Wealth is not bad however its focused pursuit can get in the way of being most fully “present” and then acting on the path toward “Enlightenment” in your human incarnation… (This reflects My opinion based on my guidance…)

“Enlightenment” includes non-judgement, empathy, acceptance, and equanimity of other pilgrims and the interactions which occur. The practice of an Enlightened being includes unconditional love of all souls even the ones who you bump into who teach you lessons as your seemingly polar opposites. A common lesson on the path to “Enlightenment” entails taking full responsibility for the path you are following. No one else has made the choices you have made and you empower yourself by assuming your responsibility to both “good” and the difficult circumstances you may experience along the way. YOU have more power to create than you are consciously aware of in your human existence! (If you do not like your life’s path, change it! If people do not like you, you could change or find new people or learn from this difficult and awkward situation. Quit making the same mistake over and over or accept this condition in your temporary incarnation.)

Depression and Sadness are not uncommon human experiences. Our choice is to “suffer.” On the other side of living a human life, there are miraculous experiences and joy to be found in every day which you are blessed to live.

YOU are a Blessing! You are a Miracle! No one else can do “You” better than you and the Divine Spirit would be incomplete without what your soul brings to our Universe. Thank you for being you… You are LOVED!

You are a Miracle! Thank you for being you.

Quit making the same mistake

It’s Crazy! Quit making the same mistake over and over… The definition of crazy is doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results, so I have been told.
Another quote which can cause reflection:
“We cannot solve our problems with the same thinking we used when we created them.” Albert Einstein.

Now “Crazy” is not bad. Let us not judge this word or these behaviors. The word implies that the behavior is abnormal and out of step with conventional beliefs. But, is abnormal bad? Are “conventional beliefs” good? To both questions the answer is the same, “No” not always. With this said, are “conventional beliefs” not often crazy? This is for another posting. Abnormal behavior is often needed to solve problems… And, repeatedly doing the same behavior over and over expecting different results can be the identified, correctable behavior.

As an example, can you be loud, annoying/demanding, disruptive, and painfully distracting in all, or most, social situations and not be viewed as difficult to get along with and often objectionable? Can you simply ask, or even plead, for forgiveness and then continue the same “crazy” behavior expecting people to understand and continue to welcome you into their social group? Said with subtly, can you hit people over the head again and again and expect to build friendships? I do know of people who want the answer to be “Yes” and wonder why they get the answer, “No.”

“Outsiders” and “oppositional” people do test the accepted normal in beliefs and behaviors. We can learn from these opinions. When these outsiders become destructive to the social fabric it is not always a bad thing. After a time of repeated “different” behavior the group can accept this into conventional behavior or reject it. We have choice! AND, getting beat over the head multiple times does not often lead to a positive, lasting change. Even, if the social group needs this test.

So if you find yourself as an “outsider” or poorly accepted person, you too have choice. Take responsibility for your actions and do not make excuses. You are the creator! You are more powerful than you realize. If you release your control to others by thinking that their actions have created your problems then you release control of the solution. Quit playing the victim or you will be at someone else’s control for happiness. Eventually, you will need to be responsible and take charge of your life’s direction and your life lessons.

AND. Consider the impermanence, for all life on the Earthly plane is temporary. Both desirable and undesirable experiences and relationships do not go on forever in the drama of life on Earth. And, as we march down our path in this pilgrimage of life, we are here, in this incarnation, to learn from the “drama” of the role we are playing out… Learning is a good thing but it is not always, if ever, an easy thing.

Every one of us is an “outsider” when we approach new social situations. We can blend in. We can be ourselves and look to determine whether the group finds this appropriate for their social group. Or, we stir the pot with oppositional behavior, thoughts, and energy knowing that we may often be difficult to accept. We can be responsible for our behaviors and have all sides learn from this interaction or we can scream in blame of the others we are working to connect with. Either way, there is value and learning from this interaction for all sides. And, all life, and relationships on Earth, are temporary in the Universal scheme of things. Playing your dramatic role in your incarnation is for your current lessons and does not fully encompass your experience in the higher realms…

You have a choice. You can continue to repeat the same, familiar behavior again and again AND even expect a different result OR you can become aware of your pattern of drama and perhaps try something new. The “familiar” may feel safer because it is a “known” but it may not get you where you want to go. You have a choice to quit making the same mistake or you can be responsible for your being stuck and the lessons you gain from this continuing thought or behavior. It is your life and your lesson!

You are a Miracle! Thank you for being you.

Your Relationship with the Divine

There are different kinds of relationships. There are friendships, family, community, work, romantic, and many others. Each of us have had many relationships in our lives as humans. Beyond our “human” relationships we all have our relationship with the Divine Spirit, or the Source, or with God… These relationships with the Divine are different than human relationships and, in my understanding, are not possible to completely understand with human mind based consciousness. Why? Because our relationship with the Divine does not translate into 3 dimensional thinking and the limitations of linear time and space. (Our brains can not fully grasp the multi-dimensional consciousness found in the higher realms.)

We, as humans, usually require connections and support from fellow humans. For example, babies need care and feeding which their parents often supply. These conditional relationships persist in our lives. We are culturally taught, and have some genetic coding, to “care” for our children, families, friends and communities in this descending order of importance. Our “significant other”/partner is often a high priority but we have many challenges with cultural expectations that may not match up with our partner’s availability. These “Special Relationships,” as the Course in Miracles defines our human relationships, are not as unconditional as our relationship with the Divine. This is complicated. True unconditional divine love is too complex and multidimensional (from the higher realms) for the limited human consciousness to most fully grasp. Our human limitations are partially limited by our mind believing in three dimensions when there are an infinite amount of dimensions. And, our belief that time is linear with a “past,” a “present,” and a “future,” when in the Higher Realms of the Divine there is no time only the current moment. Our brains have limitations so we need to view in a linear order when, actually, we are timeless spirits… (This can be difficult for our minds to grasp.)

The Divine Spirit is a part of you which can not find its way into human understanding, let alone, words. For example, how do you really describe the full sense of “Unconditional Love.” Human love is always “conditional” and this too is complicated and not definable. Feelings and emotions can be suggested but not fully defined. The human brain can not really get a grip on what unconditional love is. In a near death experience I experienced, I briefly felt what the Divine’s Unconditional Love felt like. A nano-second of joy and bliss. It felt amazing but beyond definition. In my waking human consciousness I can get close but not really fully there when attempting to remember or relive this nano-second of my life’s past experience. I will wait for the transition at the end of this life to rejoin the Joy and Bliss which I was “teased” with in my NDE.

Know you ARE Loved Unconditionally even if the human mind and human life drama does not allow the full rememberance and feeling which this entails.

Rest assured, your mind will not, and does not have to, fully understand the full extent of the higher dimensions of the Divine Source. The limitations we humans have is a major part of our drama and our challenge in living our human lives. We unconsciously, often, are living to remember our pure connection to the Divine and to test our “learnings” to the dramatic play we call our lives… Finding, or remembering, who we truly are as perfect spirits in the Universe is a huge part of the “game” in living as limited human beings. It is Fun! It is a Joy to find our way through the fantasy of life we have chosen to live. Like going to a movie and loosing our normal life to the fantasy we see, and experience, on the screen.

You can raise your consciousness to “Know” and “Remember” from where your soul/spirit have come from and to where you will return… (If, you ever really left in the first place…)
And, your mind can argue with me in this set of beliefs regarding your participation in the Divine Spirit. You are Divine and YOU are connected to all the other souls in this Universe. We are all in this together. So everyone we bump into is another version of you… It is difficult to “Know” this and then to remember this belief when we interact, but these are the interactions and lessons we have come here to experience… Hopefully, in an ever more conscious way…

We are all being tested by the dramas we experience in our human existence. Isn’t it great! Difficult, depressing, painful, and challenging, BUT, Great! Our test to remember where we came from, The Divine, and where we will return, if we ever really “left” in the first place… We continue to connect with other pilgrims, know we are all in this together, and Love every spirit we encounter. That is “Enlightenment” and what we seek to carry forward in our human lives. We ARE the Divine, manifested into this human drama…

We Are Here to Love!

It is not easy! It is not complicated! We are here to love. To know love and to spread love. Our human lives pretend to honor the drama we create as the useful challenges we have to learn from. But, in the end, our learnings and our challenges are less complicated when seen from the perspective of the “Source.” We are here to serve each soul we bump into on our pilgrimage through this life and we are here to Love…

We want this to be more complicated and seemingly more important! Our egos want us to judge our deeds with relative values which are just constructed by our minds. We want to separate ourselves and to feel more important by comparing our “goodness” or our “successes” with the other people we meet. However, this judgement and separation is a challenge to release. At some point, we remember and then “Know,” that we are all in this together and are all heading in the same direction of being tested by our human dramas and then finding loving acceptance of all the souls in this Universe…

We are all being tested by the dramas we experience in our human existence. Isn’t it great! Difficult, depressing, painful, and challenging, BUT, Great! Our test to remember where we came from, The Divine, and where we will return, if we ever really “left” in the first place… Our goal as we grope toward an Enlightened state is to continue to connect with other pilgrims, know we are all in this together, and Love every spirit we encounter. That is “Enlightenment” and what we seek to carry forward in our human lives. We ARE the Divine, manifested into this human drama… (Not to belittle our struggles and our lives, but, perhaps we can step out of our dramas and imagine that we are looking at, viewing our lives as if we were watching a movie or a TV drama. The characters draw us in to their stories. If the acting is good, we are drawn in to the roles being played and the drama being played out. But, at the end of the movie we have new perspective but we return to our lives… It may serve us better to be slightly removed from the dramas we experience as humans so we can gain perspective without being to sucked in… But, this IS the lesson of our existence…) By “we return to our lives,” I refer to rejoining our spirit lives in the higher realms of the Divine.

AND, the “Love” being suggested is NOT human love with human conditional concerns. True Divine “Unconditional Love” seems to be beyond mental comprehension, and so beyond human definition. Even human love is really undefinable. Words do not do justice to the deepest concept of the emotions and understanding of love. “Divine Love” can not even be felt (well) or described by the human mind (and certainly words in English.) We “Know” Unconditional Love in our spirit and when dwelling in the Higher Realms. (In my personal experience, after returning from a spiritual “awakening” visit to the Higher Realms when visiting Death at the human age of 19 years old, I “remembered’ and felt Unconditional Love but could not clearly feel it when I returned to my human life. Though I “knew” it was available beyond the limitations of my human self. This was a life changing experience for me, which I was gifted.)

With all this said: Find Love. Share Love. Be Love… (You do not need to make excuses or make it more complicated… But, you will… Until, you do not need to…) And, Unconditional Love, Freedom, and Acceptance awaits You in the Higher Realms…

Paula Forget, my mentor and author of the book, “Guided to the Higher Realms,” contributes to this story:
“If I can add as a side, it is easy to Love when you see the Beauty of the Divine in others and in the whole world. It is there in its essence, even in the pain and difficulties, and in the joys and moments of awe.” (BTW: a recent rereading of Paula Forget’s book was the trigger and inspiration for this and many other of my blog postings…)
