BE Serene Now

An unhealed mind is agitated. It is stressed. You can envision weights and chains. When it goes forth to teach others ‘how to be’ it invariably adds to their stress.
But there is a PLAN. Yes, Father is ‘Starter’, but Mother directs our growth. Father is ‘Over-arching Love’. Mother expresses that ‘Love’ in myriad designs. (As Holy Spirit once told me you never have ‘Style’ without substance…Love without expression! Or Expression without Love.) What a great example of Divine partnership!
Both want their children to thrive. (I suggest watching the free movie ‘Thrive’ on You-tube as a start to awakening). We do not stay in fourth grade forever. That’s why they make those desks so small! There is always a next step and a letting go to move on.
The ‘Serenity Prayer’ says to face the disturbing thought or situation and decide to change what can be changed and accept what cannot be changed. The prayer is to be shown the difference. I would add, “And forgive and drop all assumptions.”
The theraputic technique of tapping meridian points of the head, face and body while accepting personal feelings about a person or situation is called EFT. (Check out the EFT videos on You-tube and follow along for anxiety or fear,depression, even overweight.)
Are you noticing a tendency to get ensnared in ‘drama’? Here’s a clue that you are trapped in ‘drama’ by retaliating when someone pokes you, finds fault, denigrates your integrity and smears your egoic identity as less than pristine. When you ‘defend’ with ‘righteous’ indignation, you waste your time and make the situation worse. You have just made an unspoken agreement that there is something to defend. You have stepped into their ‘drama’.
Another way we attempt to deal with our fears instead of handing them to Holy Spirit to forgive and heal…is to run and hide. To try to pretend we aren’t really afraid. This is called “Disassociation”. In the reptilian brain, this is the flight response.
We can ascend to the next higher grade (and the vibes get quicker, too), when we unlearn the limiting untruths and postulated theories of our dim-witted ancestors. Then we forgive, and transmute old wounds, (they didn’t know any better, they thought they were protecting us, they felt we were too immature to handle the truth. as they subjectively saw it, etc.) We can see our experiencing trauma in that prison of lies was a needed lesson to challenge our skill at detecting the stench of lies and strengthen our resolve to break free. Character training 101!
We can then let go of antiquated belief systems, take a vacation from our burdens and partner up with Holy Spirit who, by the way, does the heavy lifting!
Accept the ‘Now moment’ as the first step in our “Great Adventure.” Example: Saint Peter had no silver or gold when he and John met the cripple at the Gate Beautiful. They gave a command in the Name of Jesus backed by Faith in that name to restore the man’s limbs to soundness. At the sound of, “Rise and walk in Jesus’ Name”, the adventure of the Jesus Movement took off!
Mother’s has good advice, “Be here, now ,right in this moment.” Thus you are going with the ‘flow’ of Mother’s PLAN.
Let’s partner with our Power-house, all-knowing Holy Spirit, follow His ‘nudge’ and see what ‘Adventure’ ACCEPTANCE will bring.
(P.S. You can pass this along as a Mother’s Day thought.)

The Challenge of Seeking for “The Perfect”

Perfection is for geometry, not expectations. Especially in human relationships. These matchmaking sites can only filter so far when one is seeking the perfect partner, I suggest.
So did you have the perfect parents, or wish they were? How about perfect siblings or children?
Let’s face it It’s a fantasy to expect people to meet your expectations. It is more of an adventure to find that they do not. Whimsy makes for more delight, being caught off guard makes for not being bored, and an error, or mistake in perception leading to an argument lends another opportunity to practice forgiveness.
Really, being grateful, thankful and appreciative for someone who is important to you is an act of self-kindness. Perhaps you haven’t measured up to their ‘Perfection-measuring’ tape either.

I Want to Address Depression and it’s main Feeder: Complaining YEOUCH! : Yell/ Examine or Emote/ Observe/ Utter/ Challenge/ Help another who may have the same or similar case. Pause and rewind what you just said. WAS it positive or negative? Teddy Roosevelt once said, “Complaining about a problem without posing a solution is called whining.” (That rhymes with lining. ) CNN etc. want us to become a culture of whiners; to complain and loudly about the unfairness of life. To be eager to shift the blame to other causes for our misfortunes instead of our projected interpretations. It seems we have acquired a taste for sourness that is most gratifying! And it sours our world outlook! It rewires our brains to negativity pings – “Yum, sour grapes! Optimism! What! Be thankful and grateful? Sorry, that’s unreal!”

Your complaining at first gets others’ pity, sympathy, advice and efforts to lift your spirits. But after a bit it drains their energy and sours their milk of human kindness. Ever notice them looking into their heartfelt giving tank and coming up dry? Are they feeling a lack of gratitude and sense they are tired of the ‘Me-me drama’ record? Is your dark cloud-face coming a reason to cross to a sunnier side of the street? Anticipating the sound of wounded victim and watching ‘down-spiriling actions’ is a downer that most health-conscious can do without. Seriously!
So, if you absolutely need to vent, be valiant, and serve on your smorgasbord of voice, a choice. A variety of gratitude sandwiches. So you’ve got a pickle? Got a Beef? Spread some Mayo-Praise! Layer with Joy-onion. Sprinkle with bacon-crispy snappy jokes! You’ll be feeling and serving a better mood-wich!

What my research has shown me of our Creator’s Plan.

In the beginning was infinity, I’m told. Infinity became aware and there was none other. It was Truth, It was Love. Love developed a desire to express itself. It contemplated an idea of exploring itself. Principles and laws, concepts and distortions to holographically fractalize formed first as an idea, then as geometricities. They had to be distortions of the Law of One.
Thus the Law of Free Will distorted Oneness into a choice between Unity of the All and Not-all.
One spinning photon of Light holding all energy and all possible scenarios created multiple illusory photons and holographic replicas that took seeming randomness and began to focus it into co-creative intelligence. This Son, born of God, The Christ-mind. By the Law of Confusion, Christ and Prime Creator used the Principle of Paradox and vibrated a resonance of photons into a straight line. By curving and rotating Light all forms, patterns, codes and rhythms were capable of being designed.
Starting With a gigantic Prime-galaxy all other galaxies, universes, solar systems and planets reorganized their randomness into coherence and continued infinitely. They progressed from regulated, to aware, to intelligent.
Thus the physical was made from infinity of thought. And all ‘forms’ yearn in their reaching for Light and more knowledge and thus to serve the prime intention of the One.
We ourselves have this same yearning. We seek light and knowledge so that as co-creators in Prime-creator’s service, our every thought creates. We explore the consequences on our choices, yet are free to choose again.
Healing is addressing blockages of light-flow through our energy chakras as we maintain an open Heart.
Thus we serve the One Infinite Loving Creator…Our Father. Our Source, Our Life.

Wherever You Are …Reach Higher

Emotional Scale: [This is from channeled material, but I can see how it could be helpful].
1. JOY/ Knowledge/ Empowerment/ Freedom/ Love:[ I see this as the optimal level of feelings and I may gather photos of people feeling this way to gaze my attention and focus my intention for the day.]
2. Appreciation/ Passion/ Exuberance: [ This would be feelings from seeing the goal within reach and all hindrances removed.]
3. Enthusiasm / Eagerness/ Happiness: [These feelings speak of enjoying the process of working for a desired goal knowing it will yield fruition.]
4. Positive expectation/ Belief: [This level of feelings speak of Faith when one is charging forward with a plan to implement.]
5. Optimism : [Optimists say the glass is half full. They are trusting a promise that all is well with a sunny outlook.]
6. Hopefulness: [Here is a patient looking for a fulfillment of a promise given a while ago but not come to pass as yet.]
7. Contentment : [This is a relaxed state, no desired projects, no regrets, just happy to exist. Maybe hum, “Let it Be.”]
8. Boredom: [ The tilt is less than satisfied, the vibe is impinged upon to urge a discontinuance of status quo.]
9. Pessimism: [ A lack of holding Hope, a result of bad news believed coupled with fear. the cup is half empty and it’ll get worse.]
10. Frustration/ Irritation/ Impatience: [Here the feelings are based on lacking, faulty or bad information centered on certain expectations, promises that were made with faulty foundation. Like expecting a house of cards to stand.]
11. Overwhelm: [This is known as housewife frenzy or having too much on one’s plate. Unless one gets a break one feels headed for a nervous breakdown.]
12. Disappointment: [ Like having a rug pulled out, a flat tire or a bitter pill. One having thrown a toss aiming for the mark misses and doesn’t get their name on the trophy.]
13. Doubt: [ Here one’s mind forms each expectation with the words, “I fear…”. This is the opposite of hope. Many minds prefer to remain in this morass rather than feel disappointed by hope dashed.]
14. Worry: [This is what is also called ‘angst’. free-floating anxiety, baseless, looking for sweet heart-break to end the restlessness.]
15. Blame of others: The Ego mind, having forgotten it’s connection to the Creator, seeks solace from self-inflicted pain of guilt, (“I feel separate, so I must have made God ineffectual.”) The way to avoid confronting the impossibility is to project guilt outward.] All the while the Ego-mind is saying, “Yes! Yes!”
16. Discouragement: [Hands and head hang low, strength is feeble. Below doing anything or even trying. What’s the use. Told you will fail if you try].
17. Anger: To have this energy placed lower than the mind having been told it can’t hope, I sense we have moved into the reptilian brain of reaction. Here is only two options; fight or flight. This feeling tenses the muscles to throw a punch or whatever is felt needful to remove the pain.]
18. Revenge: This as a feeling rather than an act denotes zeroing the blame of guilt on a specific target, the cause of loss, hurt, pain,failure to achieve happiness. As a worse vibe than blame, we see a feeling to ‘get back, get even, make them feel just as bad as they made me feel’. This is justice gone awry.]
19. Hatred / Rage: [“This means war!” The Ego-mind is convinced the removal of the ‘other who is to blame’ is the answer. It even validates as winning a victory over evil.]
20. Jealousy: [‘Other who is to blame’ has it better, more love, more stuff, more stature, more ‘ins’ with God, or Mommy etc.] The Grinch whose heart was three times too small.
21. Insecurity/ guilt/ unworthiness: [A desire to hide as if a big red wart is festering on their face and they are unfit for presentable company.]
22. Fear/ Grief/ Depression: [An energy draining state where vitality is seeping out like a sieve. One who feels this low vibe may harm themselves just to feel something.]
23. Despair/ powerless-helplessness:[ Ego-mind has always wanted to kill you, but here may realize if it does then it will cease to exist when it has achieved its goal.]
End annotation: Post this scale as a tool to be aware that you are in charge of choosing which feeling state you are expressing in any given moment. There is no guilt in feeling anger as a choice higher than depression. Your prescription for healing may take several adjustments, but you will achieve your selected choice better than one demanded of you.

I believe When You started this Journey

I believe when you started this journey you told the Universe that you wanted to practice ‘Crisis Management’.

So He set it up.   One experience after another.

Like any nightmare.  To the untrained mind the feeling is being endangered and helpless.  This leads to ‘fear’ and the ‘flight or fight’ choice.  This persists until the mind is willing to be trained otherwise and is given tools.

Many crisis management tools are offered.  Some work better than others to alleviate fear to bring equanimity and the solace we call ‘Peace’.

  • The Pharmaceutical tool: Does not change the external experience and may have life endangering side effects.   Mind numbing or able to simulate euphoria.
  • The Education tool:  Great!  The more you know, the quicker your choice of appropriate action can ‘save the day’.  You can face the fear and go ahead anyway.  This tool makes it clear it is better to go through rather than avoiding issues or building weapons of attack. (Attack counteracts goals of learning and growth.)
  • The Religion tool:  Unfortunately this often leads to abdication of being your  own Crisis Manager.  The mind that always is looking outside for rescue is setting itself up to being dominated.  Enablers often undermine the maturation process.  It is a temporary stage, at best.
  • The Social Dictates Tool:   Our governing systems have codes and rules to punish offenders and keep the peace.  This coercion of lists of ‘musts’, ‘shoulds’, and ‘have-tos’ are structured to  keep members in line through fear.  What is learned  are modes of pretending and habits of suppression.  Parental finger waggling teach children what is not socially deemed appropriate.
  • The Mental ‘Suggestion’ Hypnosis tool:  Perhaps when one learns to ‘self-suggest’ one has gained a peace tool. Will it stop the experience of crisis if one doesn’t react?
  • EFT (Emotional Freedom Technique) called ‘tapping’ on the body’s Meridian Points.  This is a scientifically discovered way to release stressful feelings binding our lives. You tap on the body’s recording points admitting deep fears and emotional stresses followed by a choice to love, accept and respect yourself.  You may also choose to replace anxiety with wondering if you’ll feel better fulfilling a task instead of avoiding it, or a choice to relax behind some stress inducing episode. You are actually taking self-responsibility for ‘going through’ anxiety, pain, resentment, feeling confused, helpless, panic, anger, rage, phobias, frustrations, and embarrassment.

Crises may actually be programmed into our life scripts by a choice to grow through practicing ‘Crisis Management’.  Old ruts may need a crisis to bust us loose and change our path to a better one.

 

Poem: This Need Not Be …inspired by ACIM, paraphrased by Shelley

Sadness Need Not Be:   Depression is from a sense of being deprived…

When you want, but do not have…  Remember This:

  You are deprived of Nothing  But by your ‘Decision’s Wish’.

Decide otherwise, and Be Wise.

Anxiety Need not be:  The Ego swings its dictates capriciously.

Its luring voice says, “Be vigilant and anxious; uphold us!”

Be Wise…Uphold otherwise.

A fatigued and dis-spirited Mind Need Not Be.

The Ego’s plotted Temptations truly offer Nothing but Lies.

See the Deception.  By choosing to focus otherwise

Your mind will be healed, you will Rise…and be Wise.

By VIgilant choosing Love over Fear

We can shun ‘Media-mongering’, and Vote with our Hearts:

Compassion over Hatred

Idealism over Cynicism

Hope over Depression

Purity over Corruption

Open Light over Darkness’s Obscurity

Sanity of Inner Peace over madness.

My Soul votes with God…

All Else Need Not Be.

 

On the fourth day of the Month

Fourth day of the Month

Meditation using a stone.

I have a Book on how concentrating on Heaven sent number sequences brings normalcy to our experiences.  In using these concentration exercises we gradually see our thoughts when in harmony with Heaven, effect positive changes.  Here is my take on using a stone to idealize one’s world.  Set one desire with focused intention and it is but one step.  A second step  is then offered to set up momentum.  What would be your first desire?  More money?  Better eyesight?  A successful outcome in a relationship or business venture?
