Taking Inventory of Beliefs

In Wayne Dyer’s book, Wisdom of the Ages, I found a simple instruction. It was one small paragraph. I had thought to begin where I left off reading. It said, “The menu can never be the meal. These are appetizers on my menu. I suggest you put this wisdom to work.” I put pen to paper and began making a list after his suggestions.
This is what I wrote:
Inventory of my beliefs about:
1.RELIGION= a list of ‘dos’ and ‘don’ts’ employed to govern behavior of children. (Heaven is of One mind so duality concepts of good and bad are not real.)
2. Capital Punishment = the threat of death as a determent. So long as people believe death is real, that disembodiment ends life, it could deter. But I suppose the Ego is terrified when I threaten to lop off its head. Here is a scenario Cobra speaks of: The soul that is so defiled that it is past hope of healing has an opportunity to have its energy reorganized by dissolution in the Central Sun. ( As no Source Energy can ever be lost.)
3. Minority Rights = Love has no Exceptions. So says A Course in Miracles. All are equal brothers so equal with our brother Christ. We elected our mission and purpose before we came onto Earth and chose our parents. Many times we chose to be in the minority. The poor experiencing jealousy of the rich. Next time the roles reverse! Perhaps we are the one marching for minority rights and our purpose is to spark awareness in others.
4. REINCARNATION = Here in duality we have the choice to experience disconnection from Source in myriad physical forms. Over and over we are told we must balance Karma and so we return. But Jesus defeated all dissuading lies and got to where only God’s voice was agreed to. Final voicing forgiveness broke his Karmic wheel…and so it can be for all God’s prodigals.
Meanwhile it is one life experience after another unto the final knowing.
5. Young people/ old people = I think of peas in a pod ripening. Finally the elderly peas become seeds to plant for a fresh crop. But what of prodigies or a child with an old soul? So age is never a factor to determine wisdom.
6. Non- traditional medicine = eclectic methods for our eclectic DNA! Many of these methods would have become traditional and mainstream if not for greedy Pharma not letting us know about them.
7. What happens at death = Consciousness continues its choices if free to do so.
8. Your Cultural biases = WASP. This is the comfort zone I am accustomed to. However I must value all the exposure I’ve had to other cultures and their perspectives. I may call their different color palate smell and language sounds ‘foreign’. I may not be used to another culture, but learning to step back and put away judgment tends to yield less of a shock.
9. Now I have preferences: Decent body covering from distractions.//
male/ female mutual honor and respect.// Choice not tyranny// negotiate not war// no private thoughts// no people pleasing/ wisdom schools teach to reflect, watch, and be aware.//align with Christus vibration. Mind training to excellence of thought.
10. The Ability to Perform Miracles = Bring to Heaven’s normal state. The Christus Mind is 100% aligned. and denies all other unaligned vibrations! Then we see 100% alignment become manifest reality in the construct.

Are We just Script Performers?

Scientists call Programmable Life Forms…PLFs…those units that can be instructed to perform by suggestions or commands. (Are you thinking automatons? Nanites? Cloned Gray aliens sent to collect data? A Roomba?
But have you looked at the person in the mirror? have you noticed how there have been myriad attempts to sway your choices? How about those ‘Vote for Me’ ads that smear the other fellow?
Then there are the ‘Trust Me’ ads flowing to bombard your senses from the FDA to the FBI and Main Stream Media. Big Pharma wants your pocketbook siphoned by ‘Take this Pill forever’.
Magazines keep coming even after you cancel them touting ‘Beauty’ and ‘Fashion’. Car ads sell sex. Promos program us with desires to live like the Rich and Famous. Even religions advertize that their ‘God’ is better than the other fellow’s.
But are we genetic automatons? Sometimes we act like it.
Our ‘star-matter’ organized by codes in our two-strand DNA give us physical characteristics. But does it give us our curiosity? Our drive to achieve? Our compassion for others? Our heroic self-sacrifice?
If our higher self-consciousness/ soul chose to express and live in these limited bodies of only five senses, perhaps they are also limited in defenses! Perhaps some sabotage is capable of co- opting our free-will and our stated functioning we had ‘pre-chosen’ as our purpose. We may be air-wave bombarded to keep us in check with brain warping/ thwarting techniques! (Cell phone towers…Microwave towers etc.)
If we are supposed to use our pineal glands to access our higher purpose and identity, it would serve our would-be slave masters to block it’s functioning, calcify it and deaden its sensitivity.
If adding more strands to our DNA will improve higher functioning and free-will choice, If we can lengthen our life with longer telomeres, then enslavers must tinker and switch off our access.
My point is, what scripts have we been handed to play out on this limited gameboard? Isa ll this holodeck illusion for our benefit or are we just programmed life forms for some ET entertainment, …or energy food? Are we so asleep we keep repeating traumas with no respite?
If we call out for salvation, who will hear? How will we be answered? Can we begin writing our own scripts?
LET THE CLEAN-UP BEGIN! HEALING-ALUJIA! Jesus, we love YOU!

When Do I Smile?

Not just the performance face, but from realizing I am being blessed?
* When I awake and realize the gift of a new day, :”His mercies are new every morning.”
* When I see a child awaken with an ‘aha’ of a new understanding.
* When I receive a gift from a thoughtful giver, for the knowledge I was not only in their mind, but in their heart.
* When I go out in nature and let the wonder of its simple being vibrate abundant life to me.
* When my confused mind picks up a word “WORD” and the enlightened personal message eases my soul.
* When my thoughtful gift is received with welcome appreciation.
* When the barking dog comes to sniff my hand and has a wagging tail.
* When I’m handed my grand-baby to hold for the first time, and I smell its new-baby smell.
* When the teacher looks at my efforts and pronounces it a ‘masterpiece’.
* When I perform, and after, there is an applause.
* When, while boating, I touch the water, feel the substance, temperature, texture and see it sparkle.
* When I, too, understand the lesson taught by the teacher with the spinning flower.
* When I solve a crossword puzzle. (Or untangle a box of tangled cords.)
* When someone comments on my blog that it , “Made their day.”

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.)

Would you rather be Right or Kind?

would you rather be right or kind?______________.

 

What brought up this question was an event I experienced at a gathering of ladies who have met daily for the last thirty years at the local fast food coffee house to work crossword-puzzles.  Mom had been a regular and when she had a stroke, we daughters used to take her, even though she stopped guessing at the answers.  She enjoyed seeing familiar faces.

Now I like a challenge to get my mental juices flowing.  I also love to be right, for that means, ‘I win!’

Mom has been gone for awhile now and this day I decided to drop in and join in the fun.  They had already been at it a half hour when I sat down.  The oldest white haired lady had been given the job of reading the clues and filling in our best guess as to the answer.  The boxes were tiny in the clipping from the paper, and I could see her squinting her eyes.

“Um…um”. She said, hesitatingly.  We had all agreed on the word to fill the blanks and she was trying to pencil them in.  I peeked over.  Oh- no!  She misspelled it!  I reached over a finger to ‘help’ point out her mistake.  I told her, “That’s not an ‘I’,  its an ‘A’.”

Three of the other ladies were aghast at my importunity.

“Let her be!”

“Let her take her time!”

“We never push!”

Ah!  Me being accused of wrongdoing?  Where was I wrong?  Sure I was right in the letter, but my ‘get it right or be corrected’ spirit was pushing my own ego agenda.  I caused more fluster to this fragile soul and therefore defeated the purpose of fun for which they had gathered.

I had to realize that over the years these ladies had so tuned to each other that ‘no pushing’ had become their rule of love.

Refocussed to Miracles

ImageTHE TATTOOED MAN:  I saw him pre-showering by the entrance to the Athletic club’s pool:  tats (tattoos) on arms, hands, back of neck.  He even had one on his cheek!  He had huge ‘bullet hole’ piercings in his ears, and their two steel ring inserts matched the studs in his bottom lip.  His head was shaved yet age-wise he could have been some kid’s dad.

I had a choice- to react out of fear, or be God’s love for this ‘Holy Child of God.’

My exercise in the therapy pool was over and I headed for the long spa tub for some soothing jets.  As I entered I reaquainted  with a lady I had spoken to last time about strained relations I was having. (Oh, you don’t know that relaxing in a spa equals gals chatting?)  I updated her that I chose to practice forgiveness, and she agreed it’s better not to add fuel to the fire resulting in more hurt feelings.  “It’s not worth it,”  we agreed.

As she left, I saw the tattooed man entering.  Now I know very well a lighthearted jest breaks the ice, so I said the first thing that came into my mind, “This is the philosophy corner.”  I wondered if it had been an obscure joke for even as I laughed, I could see he was confused.

Now I had to set him at ease.  Oh, now what was it my daughter told me about people with tattoos from her anthropology class?  Oh, yes, that each tattoo holds special meaning to its wearer.

“Which is your favorite?” I asked inching closer to hear his reply. (I had taken my hearing aids out before entering the water.)  He pointed to what looked like two red mangos joined at the bottom.  It was a puffy heart.  “This sacred heart has healing beams coming out of it.”  He said.

My! He is a proponent of Love’s power!  My confidence soared.

“Oh, then it seems to me, since it is on your hand that if you laid hands on the sick, healing beams would come to give them a miracle!”  Now I got a smile as he agreed.

So, next time you see tattoos, ask Love to take over.

One story deserves another.  Lets keep communicating.   Oh, I need to post another story about how I saw others express love…!  Look for it.

Hawaii 2012 Hi, everyone, Let me tell you how I finally got to my first visit to Hawaii!

Hi everyone,  Here’s the story:  I had just heard last May of a new style of Manifesting your desires.  Previous plans had the goal at the top of the chart with a ‘to-do’ list to go down beneath.  This new style was much less stressful.

  You put a wish (a drawing picture or word) in the center of a blank chart and wait for your spiritual consierge (aka Holy Spirit) to gift you with a progressive experience until the goal is fulfilled.  This gift is written at the end of a sun-ray as it is received leaving you with a joyful heart of gratitude.

  I took a large white drawing board and wrote ‘Hawaii’ in the center.  Sure, the desire was born of jealousy.  Sure spiritual masters don’t care where they are.  But, hey, my sister had gone already six times!  And I was trying out this style of working with the Universe.  I believe it has the power and wisdom to work things out for the best for all concerned better than my pea-brain efforts.

  The next thing I knew it was June 20th when I suddenly remembered it had been a year since I’d gone on my Bahamas cruise.  Oh, yes.  There was a paid-for plane ticket in Gary’s name still unused!  I put a call in to United.  Oh, no, it was already past the forfeit date, but if a booking was made today they would reinstate it.  I was on the phone to Gary in a heartbeat.  He told me to research possibilities.  Of course I researched Hawaii.  But since I planned to go the cheapest way I researched Allegiant’s deals.  I checked availability after labor day since Gary said September was probably toward the end of his work season in construction.

  I found the best deal was Allegiant to Honolulu from Las Vegas Sat.Sept. 8th returning the following Fri. the 14th. with a Castle Hokele hotel special and promo code of 50% off.  The package including one carry-on each was around $1,300! 

  The unused ticket was for United, however.  I’d better not do any booking until Gary agrees.  He says partners don’t make unilateral descisions for the other.  He said he’d check flights to and from Las Vegas on United from Bozeman, Montana.  When he called back June 22nd, the first thing he said was, “Aloha!”

  Wow! The rays out from the center of my chart were beginning to look like the many beams radiating out from the sun. I watched Hawaii 5-0, TV Surfer movies, Paintings/ Music/ News/ Books and atlases and research  all telling me what to expect, where to get the best deals and the most activities for the dollar.

  Now I like to think of myself as an excellent researcher- so I spent the next three months online for hours looking up and interviewing people.  What was the best way to experience Hawaii?

  More than one island?  No- Oahu was it.  Learn to surf…golf?  No.  But i made lists of Museums, water-parks, luaus, hikes to waterfalls, tours, art-walks and the Polynesian Cultural Center.  Gary was amazed at my ever-increasing ‘to-do’ list!

  “Wait a minute!  Don’t lock me into your huff-and-puff, go-and-do stuff!  I’m going on vacation to sit in the sand with my feet in the water!”

  “Oh, then you don’t think I should buy a $208 Go Oahu card prepaying my admission to 30 ativities?”

“No, we can’t pack all that in one week and still relax!”

  I should have put pictures of my desired activities on another poster.  I really wanted to snorkel and see fish out on the reef.  I wanted to ride a boogie-board on the foam, and have my first kayak ride.  But partner only agreed to hike Diamond-head, see the blow-hole, visit Kailua beach and one tour-bus to a luau.  “You go shop while I go to the beach,” he said.

  He gave me a start locating booths of dickering salesmen under the huge International Marketplace Banyan tree. I negotiated the price of dresses down from $25 to $14 and Gary only paid $13 for his $20 Hawaiian shirt!  BUT, as we were leaving a salesman stopped us with a free gift.  Tickets to the Polynesian Cultural Center Luau and show if we’d only listen to a sales pitch for 90 minutes!  After three hours we got  our free tickets, but still we had to pay the bus there and back ($26 ea.) and tour guide with lunch ($26each)

  Still we saved big by filling the fridge from a stop at Walmart less than two miles from our hotel.  I purchased cottage cheese and added cut up    pineapple that I brought home from Germain’s Luau.  Yum!

  The sky was blue, the sea was clear and warm and my mind and body relaxed in the tropical sun.  Hm, I’ll leave my ‘to-do’ lists up to my spiritual consierge next time.  Next time?  Oh, yes!  Definitely!Image
