“No one reaches love with fear beside him.” ACIM T.19.IV.D.i: 11:7 The Lifting of The Veil

 

There is a belief that “as deep as you can love is as deep as you can pain.” I have loved so deeply and pained so greatly I could not breathe. Most of us fear to Love with All We Got, because the pain is so frightening! Inner Voice says; Love with All You Are, and be big enough, courageous enough, to go through the fear of IT, through the separation, death or loss of any kind; because until you Love with Every Fiber Of Our Being, and walk through the pain of all y/our illusions, will you Be free… Beyond the veil of pain, only Love is Real and fear is the illusion. Walk with me hOMe, where Love is Free. 

Your task is not to seek for love, but merely to seek and find all of the barriers within yourself that you have built against it. It is not necessary to seek for what is true, but it is necessary to seek for what is false. Every illusion is one of fear, whatever form it takes.” ACIM T.16.IV.6.:1-3. The Illusion and Reality of Love

 

God Bless You, Om Shanti Shanti Shanti

Be Now

Be Now

Posted by on May 29, 2017 in Seeds of Wisdom | 0 comments

 

Stop Planning so Fervently for the Future to Be & Do!!

Be Now, and Do Presently what is Present-ing to You NOW with your full Presence!

Or, You’ll miss Your Full Potential & Glorious Life.

 

“Become aware that there are no accidents in our intelligent universe. Realize that everything that shows up in your life has something to teach you. Appreiciate everyone and everything in your life.” Wayne Dyer

“There are no accidens whatsoever in the Unniverse.” Ram Dass

“No one is sent by accident to anyone.” ACIM

 

We often move through our day to ‘do’ something, and miss the wonders & opportunities of our full-blooming Life in the precious present moment: the Sky, the Flower, the Wind, the Child, The Beloved One in all His/Her forms. We hold a thought of that something ‘to do’ for some grander purpose in the future, something that takes precedence over the present moment where the Presence IS. There is nothing more grand than fully Being present in the present moment with The Presence, being & doing for the One present-ing in holy instant now. “In the holy instant you unite directly with God.” ACIM T.15.V.

 

I recall when I was in seminary school, ‘going to be’ a minister. The trick is, I was already a minister, yet there were times I felt my future ‘initiation’ held more importance than the precious present moment. My homework for ordination was more important than any other duty. I remember my beloved Mother had come to live with me, and if I had that time to do over, I would have given Her more of my Presence.

 

Sometimes our lessons are hard lessons. Living in the holy present moment is a process of realization. Once realized, there is no greater place to be than fully present, loving the One in front of us. The Perfect Place and Time is Now, to Be our Gift of Presence and extension of our Gift of Love to whomever or whatever is presenting.

 

Be Now, as you know, there is no promise of tomorrow…

Life is Now!

The only true Life is Presence.

 

Trust in the moment, as you plan for the next.

Live in the Present, as The Presence illuminates for you.

Be in the Holy Instant without thought or concern of the next, as the next moment will take care of itself.

Any other place creates illusions, false hope & worry, and you’ll miss your holy whole life!

 

What are you be-holding in the present moment?

What is your present Impulse? Be & Do That!!!

 

“You can practice the mechanics of the holy instant, and will learn much from doing so. Yet its shining and glittering brilliance, which will literally blind you to this world by its own vision, you cannot supply. And here it is, all in this instant, complete, accomplished and given wholly.” T.15.II. ACIM

 

Be Blessed In every Present Moment.

Inner Voice, Regina 5/29/17

Love is Not Prejudice. Differences Disappear and Love Looks on Itself.

Love is Not Prejudice. Differences Disappear and Love Looks on Itself.

Posted by on Mar 20, 2017 in Seeds of Wisdom | 0 comments

Love is not prejudice; It does not discriminate. Love loves the Sinner & Saint, Rich & Poor, Lover & Stranger, Buddhist & Christian, Believer & Unbeliever, Male & Female, Murderer & Healer, Sane & Insane, Violator & Victim, Friend & Foe alike. Love loves equally, without preeminence. With Love there is no “Special Relationship,” we are all children of God, Brothers and Sisters of the same Light. In attaining The Christhood and Enlightenment is the realization that there are no differences in Love; this is the mystical teaching of The Christ Jesus and The Buddha Siddhartha.

 

Our choice to fall from The Kingdom and Glory of God has caused much suffering. The root of all suffering is the illusion of separation from God, and our Brothers & Sisters, which are an extension of God. Thanks be to God that His/Her Love is not prejudice and does not discriminate. The lack of prejudice and discrimination is why love heals. It is The Source of healing, the true & only Healer.Amen Amen Amen Amen!

 

Differences disappear and Love Looks on Itself. This is re-birth.

 

Inner Voice, Regina 3/15/16

 Happy Spring, Happy Rebirth

EXCUSES FOR ‘LACK OF LOVE’—Intimate Relationships—a Mircrcosm into the Macrocosm

EXCUSES FOR ‘LACK OF LOVE’—Intimate Relationships—a Mircrcosm into the Macrocosm

Posted by on Mar 6, 2017 in Seeds of Wisdom | 0 comments

As Human-Divine Beings, We must not allow any act of fear to be an excuse to separate from Love, block the flow of Love or join another in an action of ‘Lack of Love.’ ‘Lack of Love’ is fear; of which only Love can heal and overcome.

 

 

The definition of excuse is an “attempt to lessen the blame attaching to a fault or offense; (it) seek(s) to defend or justify.

 

Causing harm to another is justifiable in our culture, using the excuse that the ‘other’ caused harm first. We blame, punish, even validate killing another, excusing ourselves from extending harm, unconsciously creating a ‘cycle of fear.’

 

You’ve heard it said, “An eye for an eye and a tooth for a tooth will leave the whole world blind and toothless….

 

Matthew Henry writes an interesting commentary on the verse in the Bible, Matthew 5:38, An eye for an eye and a tooth for a tooth, he says; “Suffer any injury that can be borne, for the sake of peace, committing your concerns to the Lord’s keeping. And the sum of all is, that Christians (Christ-like, of the Light) must avoid disputing and striving. If any say, flesh and blood cannot pass by such an affront, let them remember, that flesh and blood shall not inherit the kingdom of God; and those who act upon right principles will have most peace and comfort.”

 

A Course in Miracles (ACIM) states defense is an attack; any fearful thoughts, hurtful word, or furrowed brow is an attack. Lesson 153: In my defenselessness my safety lies.

 

 

 

Recently I woke with tightness in my chest, a deep looming sadness. My Life-Partner and I have been in ‘dissonance’ for months now; the longest lasting unresolved conflict we’ve endured.

 

A few days earlier, a gifted healer & friend, anchored in Universal Love, guided me through a healing visualization meditation that encouraged me to ‘following the pain and contraction of my heart.’ As she guided me, she asked me to describe in words, if I could, the ‘energy pattern’ to communicate the feeling. It was profoundly insightful and liberating.

 

Shortly after waking with this terrible feeling of ‘contraction’ and emotional pain in my heart center, I was inspired to follow the pain. As I followed the pain, it became like a chain, linking every experience of this pain to my Partner. The words that made manifest in accordance with this ‘energy pattern’ were “unkindness and unloving.” Each link connected to a time when my Partner was ‘unkind & unloving’ to others and me. I was in awe of the patterning of the ‘contractions.’ The pain did not continue beyond the first time I had felt this contraction with my Partner; it was shortly after we had become intimate…seated on a park bench…. A chain, heavily weighted now, hung around my neck, choking me and restricting my heart. Though my story is only relevant to me, we each have a story relevant only to us; what is important to each of us is releasing the chain that links pain, and contracts our heart.

 

Chapter 21 Section II: The Responsibility for Sight, paragraphs 2 & 3 in ACIM I have read many times; verses 2:3-5 are instilled in my consciousness like a mantra.

T.21.II:

  1. This is the only thing that you need do for vision, happiness, release from pain and the complete escape from sin (lack of love), all to be given you. Say only this, but mean it with no reservations, for here the power of salvation lies.
  • (3) I am responsible for what I see.
  • (4) I choose the feelings I experience, and I decide upon the goal I would achieve.
  • (5) And everything that seems to happen to me I ask for, and receive as I have asked.

Deceive yourself no longer that you are helpless in the face of what is done to you. Acknowledge but that you have been mistaken and all effects of your mistakes will disappear.

  1. It is impossible the Son of God be merely driven by events outside of him. It is impossible that happenings that come to him were not his choice. His power of decision is the determiner of every situation in which he seems to find himself by chance or accident. No accident nor chance is possible within the universe as God created it, outside of which is nothing. Suffer, and you decided sin (lack of love) was your goal. Be happy, and you gave the power of decision to Him (Christ Jesus, The Holy Spirit) Who must decide for God for you. This is the little gift you offer to the Holy Spirit, and even this He gives to you to give yourself. For by this gift is given you the power to release you savior (your Brother & Sister in God). that he may give salvation unto you.”

 

Each time I read ACIM I am ‘expanded,’ as if there are layers and layers of ‘realization’ & ‘enlightenment’ within each string of words. Though I’ve had the book in my possession for nearly 20 years, it’s in the last 6 years I’ve only became a devoted student, it is part of my daily spiritual practice.

 

Trained, even skilled, at looking ‘at myself,’ though not always easy, I’m aware of how essential it is to look at ‘your self’ for healing and returning to Love, our true Self. Looking at another with blame and reasons for excuses is far too easy, and a trap for ego that can keep us bound to looking outside of our self for healing & Love.

 

Someone dear to me asked, “Why do you suppose your Partner’s actions ‘bother’ you? They may not bother anyone else.” Encouraging me to look at my own reasons for choosing to feel hurt. Though feeling hurt is a choice and often expectations we have of our self, this seemed different…like an ancient memory of how Divine Beings treat each other and themselves…Divine Beings are loving-kind, always, in all ways. It matters not what another does or does not do, we must not loose our Peace or block the Love to healing our self and others.

 

Spiritual Scripture says that all we need is just ‘a little willingness’ for The Christ, The Holy Spirit, to be our eyes and hears, and it will be so.

 

In unification with reciting “the mantra,”following the pain,’ and ‘looking at myself,’ I’d become clearer of the reason(s) or ‘excuses’ for the restricting pain in my heart, and was released from my suffering.

 

My heart was contracting because I was seeing the ‘stimulus’ incorrectly. It’s either Love or a ‘cry for Love.’ Even if the ‘Lack of Love’ roars like a lion, it is simply a loud cry for Love.

 

I asked to ‘See,’ to have the Vision of Christ. I’d asked the Holy Spirit to be my eyes and ears. I have chosen The Purpose of God, the Goal of Love, and to achieve only the Will of God….

 

I see I have been mistaken. I did not hear the ‘unkind-ness’ as a cry for love, and I reciprocated with hurt, another form of ‘lack of Love,’ blocking Love. With the realization that I have asked for everything that happens to me, it is incumbent upon me to SEE this and everything that comes to me as opportunities for growth, portals Home. Nothing is being done to me; I have called this to myself, to see and know my Self. With my ‘little willingness,’ I am able to see, and I vow to Love, knowing: Love heals all things…

 

Love is constant.

Love never fails.

Love dwells within;

IT does not change because of something outside of IT.

Love is Love

Love Loves, always.

 

Placing all things in Divine Right Order.

 

However minor or egregious the form of fear, we both acted and reacted with a form of ‘lack of Love,’ many call it ‘human,’ but that is an excuse too. We must not join with another’s ego or insanity in action or defense. When we loose our ‘Center’ and our Peace, may we give our self permission to remove our self from the stimulus‘ and take some ‘time-out,’ until we have returned to our ‘Center,’ grounded in our Peace, and will act or react from Love. And, may we not ‘beat our self up’ or be too hard on our self when we have had a ‘realization.’ May we say a big thank you! Once we have had a realization, we realize what we did not know and only then are able to correct the error. We can’t know what we can’t know until we know it! With this knowing, we’ll have many opportunities to correct our errors until we sin, which is a lack of Love, no more.

 

There are only two choices in every action and reaction, says The Course; the two choices are Love or Fear. Choosing Love as our Guide & Instrument, we can trust our relationships and our self are being made holy, and they are being placed in Divine right order.

 

The brilliant ‘gift of insight’ from this experience is: there is no ‘excuse’ to cause harm, to do harm unto another, through justification or reasoning, with a furrowed brow, angry scorn or life threatening, there is no excuse. If we want to heal & be healed, if we want to experience the Peace & Joy that passeth understanding all the Great Mystics speak about, we must have our vision and hearing corrected, allowing our Inner Guide to be our eyes and ears, to see and hear every act of fear as a cry for Love and choose in every action or reaction a form of Love. May we walk each other Home, together, hand in hand, ‘Peace as the Path; Love as the Way:’ from the microcosm of ‘relationship’ into the macrocosm of the Universe.

 

 

PEACE IS THE PATH;

LOVE IS THE WAY.

AMEN AMEN AMEN AMEN

LOOKING WITHIN: See your Brother as Sinless and Look within to Heal

LOOKING WITHIN: See your Brother as Sinless and Look within to Heal

Posted by on Jan 23, 2017 in Seeds of Wisdom | 0 comments

We are like filaments of One fiber, and fibers of the same Chord; each of us a spoke in the Wheel of Life; a drop of water in the same Ocean…

 

 Most of us look outside of our self onto a world of suffering, transferring the pain onto the ‘world,’ adding to the suffering inside & outside of us. Very few focus on looking within, to the ‘unhealed’ parts of ourselves to relieve the pain.

Here, in the eternal holy now, let us look within to re-store our self to wholeness; this will aid in the healing of the ‘outside’ & inside world. Mastering this, you become a healer unto others. First, you must heal yourself before you can heal another; this ‘ordains’ the healing of others.

If every fiber of the Chord chose to heal the unhealed aspects within themself, this would heal the world.

Yet, we continue to look outside of our self, we look at the unhealed aspects of our Mother, Father, Sister, Brother, Spouse, Mate, Child, Friend, Neighbor and imagined Enemy; The world outside of us, ‘seeing’ only the unhealed aspects of our Brother, which furthers our suffering. We can become so stuck in our ‘grievance’ with a Brother that we wait for His or Her apology &/or healing before we are willing to look within to any unhealed parts of our self.

If you are upset, or have an upset, with another, it is because you have an expectation, or are looking outside of yourself for healing.

Here, we will be looking within ourselves to remove any blocks to love and understanding that keeps us from enlightenment, The Christ-hood, the Truth of Who we Are.

We cannot open a rose before it organically opens; otherwise we may ‘kill’ the rose. Each of us are like a rose, we blossom in our own divined time. We are not here to pull another rose open, nor can we ask another to be healed, but we can heal our self, which aids in the healing of others and the full blossom of the rose.

This is the Key to healing, and our salvation; this is the Way Home to our Divine Self.

We can dwell on our Brother & Sisters’ self-made limitations and illusions or see them as the unlimited aspects of the Divine that they are, awakening in their own perfect Breath timing, as we focus on healing ourselves.

Setting You free, sets the whole world free.

That is why you came here…to release your suffering, pain and limitations. It is by no accident.

Your Brother & Sister are your salvation, the perfect mirror, divinely orchestrated. See them as sinless. Ask the Holy One to be your vision. This Key opens The Door of your True Home, where Grace will take the final step.

This will be the hardest work you have ever done and will ever do, but IT will be the most rewarding….returning you to the Peace that Passeth Understanding.

It is so much easier to look outside yourself and judge, than to look inside and dismantle the false self within. It is so much easier to think of yourself as ‘right’ and him as wrong, or believe that you are holier than she, maintaining our ‘egoic’ sense of a self-righteousness; a superior, separate self, rather than to see your Brother & Sister as your Self, the sinless, perfect, salvation they are, unified in Spirit and Purpose. There is no accident in your meeting. And every relationship is to be made holy.

“As a man thinketh, so does he perceive. Therefore, seek not to change the world, but choose to change your mind about the world.” ACIM T.21.Intro.

And Gandhi said, “Be the change you wish to see in the world.”

If everyone did this, there would be Peace on Earth.

Can you imagine if each of us would reel-in the ‘looking’ from outside us, to within us, and not wait for the other to ‘change’ & heal before we extended our love and forgiveness?

Let us begin right now, in this holy present instant, and ask God, the Holy Spirit, the Christ, to guide us, to be our eyes and ears, our vision and thought, our word and action, no longer looking outside our self for healing. And, let us accept ourselves, and others, right where we are, having faith in the Divinity within us.

This will free us from sickness & suffering.

The power to experience true healing & joy lies within you & me, The One Self. Amen. Om Shanti Namaste Aho.
