Everything We See

More often than not, we don’t recognize God when God is present. We don’t know what to look for. We don’t know when to look. We don’t know how to recognize God. This is because we just don’t know that much about God. We can read that God is Infinite, or God is everywhere, or God is everything, but we just don’t see how this can be, and so we don’t see God. Jesus said, “Many will see and then believe, but blessed are they who don’t see, yet still believe.” The Edgar Cayce readings say that “Faith is the belief in things unseen.” It is also believing in things not understood in our minds and paradigms.

If we just don’t yet see God, then perhaps all we can try for is to believe that everything we see is God. We don’t yet have to understand it, but we can still believe it. After all, there are many things we don’t understand, but we still believe them. And there are many things that we see.

Everything we see is God. Now, that’s quite a thought, and quite a belief. Everything we see is God. Take a look around. Everything we see is God. There’s something about this belief that feels good. Everything we see is God. Keep your eyes open for now. Everything we see …

… is God.

Try it and see.

State of the Soul Address

The External World

Right now, in the US and the world, so many people are concerned, worried, fearful and many other feelings about our own nation, the world we live in – the world around us –  “The External World” – that which we see, hear, taste, feel and smell, all around us.

Some of us have spent our entire lives focused on the world around us, fixing, working, and accomplishing things in this world.  We may have reached nearing mid-life age or the end of our lives and instead of feeling fantastically accomplished and wonderfully fulfilled, we feel depressed, anxious, upset, resentful or angry, sometimes to the point of medicating ourselves to help us deny this.

So many of us can look at what we’ve accomplished out in the world in our lifetime, and start to experience deep within where it has become nothing but a whisper – that we haven’t changed the world as much as we wanted to during this life.  We haven’t gotten the insight that we thought we’d have.  We haven’t gotten from this path in the way we thought we would, so we get angry and upset, disillusioned and disappointed, and lost in wondering if what we did had any value at all.  If we haven’t made the world into what we wanted by the time we reach “NOW”, we may get depressed, or despondent and sometimes a sense of despair and deep loss may come up within us.

We can even take our anxiety and anger out on others – those who we feel are to blame for us not “changing the world” – not “making the world a better place”.  We see PLENTY of blame and attacks on social media.  We tend to take this anger out on people who we feel “got in our way” of making this world better or our life better.  The daily news shows the worst cases of how some people have demonstrated their utter loss and frustration through killing of others.

Regardless of which side of the fence we’re on with regards to any group or culture we belong to, so many times, we blame others for our own “not making the world into the better place that I wanted to make it into” – this includes not making our own personal, private world or circle into what we wanted to make it into.  We blame others, and …

… even our self (although we don’t always admit to blaming ourselves since “it’s obviously someone else’s fault”).

If we came into the world to make the world a better place for ourselves (and others maybe) “to fix the world”, and therefore, all our effort had been focused on changing the world around us – changing any part of this planet Earth back into a “Garden of Eden” for ourselves (and others, maybe) …

but yet, if we haven’t worked to change/fix/heal/better ourselves

… then we would have wasted our entire lives.

****

Life is not about fixing the external world around us, in which we’re living.  Many think it is.  We didn’t come into this world, with the #1 directive being to change the External World around us.  We didn’t come with the purpose in life being to change the Earth.

What so many don’t remember and acknowledge is the External World around us – all of it – is the mirror image of what is within us – the mirror image of what is within our consciousness, within our minds, within our hearts and within our souls.  The world that we see and “live inside” is the reflection of what is inside our consciousnesses. What we see around us is the reflection of all of us – what we have within us to work on to change. 

We have made the Earth into our own image and likeness.

Even if we did make great changes in the External World – the Earth – we would still return to whatever level of living/dying/creating/destroying we’re at as the human race – unless we make the great changes within ourselves first.

Change begins with One… then Two…. then ….


We are here to change our own consciousness.  We are here in this level of consciousness – in this “realm” we call the Universe – the Solar System – the Earth – to change our own selves – our conscious and subconscious minds, our hearts at both the  shallowest  and the deepest places within us, and our souls in their full existence.

If we haven’t put effort into changing our own self – we have wasted all the years in the world, and it is only natural that we’re going to feel deep inside our self – that we haven’t accomplished what we came here to accomplish – that we haven’t changed the REAL thing we came to change – our self.

The Portrait of Dorian Gray

Ultimately, this fact is true – if we’ve changed the world around us, but we haven’t changed our self, then we’ve accomplished nothing, because the world will simply eventually revert back to what it was – the reflection – the Earth and the world we think we see – like the portrait of Dorian Gray, which will always reflect that truth which is within us – the unchanged, unexamined issues, harmful emotions and the broken and injured relationships we have with our self and others.

Even now, the world reflects the conflict we have within ourselves – not just with others, but the conflict we have with our own self which we haven’t yet examined, or which we haven’t yet acknowledged or worked on.  It is very true that all of us have some conflict within us which we have not yet examined – waiting for us to get around to it when we have more time – “we’re just so busy, right now.  We’ve got a world to fix, after all.”

The reflection we see in the mirror – the world that we see around us – will continue as it is – as long as we avoid the inner work on the inner world we have within our inner selves.  This reflection is ourselves that we see in the mirror, and it is this that is within which is the source of what we see out there.

The New Reflection

When we change our mind and heart about our judgements, our criticisms, our bitterness, our resentments, our rages, our angers, our fears, our abuses, our attacks, our belittlements, our disrespects, etc. within ourselves, – changed into forgiveness and mercy, compassion, tolerance, loving kindness, understanding, patience with others and ourselves, etc., then we will begin to see the new reflection in the mirror of the planet.  Because some of us have done some of this work, we are already seeing some of this change, but our own part that we play in this change – this is what we must address – sooner or later.

When we address our own issues, then we will have changed the Inner Source of the reflection that we see in the External World around us.

It is when we bring these higher qualities forward when standing in the midst of the lower/harmful qualities. Not in the midst of someone else’s portrait of Dorian Gray, but OUR OWN.  Bringing forth our higher qualities of kindness, mercy, humility, and the others when we have previously brought forth our lower qualities – in the face of our self when we are wanting instead to react spewing forth any manner of negative and harmful qualities – this is the moment of true changing of the world.

***

Christ said, “With God, all things are possible.”  This means that with God – which is the Infinite Source of love, patience, determination, kindness, persistence, wisdom, forgiveness, mercy, compassion – all inner injuries can be healed.  This means that with God – which is love, patience, determination, kindness, persistence, wisdom, forgiveness, mercy, compassion – everything within us that we’ve lost, can be found.  This means that with God – everything about us that is a mess, can be cleaned up and made straight. This means that with God, everything about our real self forgotten can be remembered.   And this means that with God, everything broken within us, can be made whole.

It is with our effort then beginning from the center within us, that the Garden of Eden returns. Then does the Earth we want to have form, come into being. Because the Garden of Eden, the Earth we want to exist, is born from the Love and Kindness, the forgiveness and mercy, the patience and understanding, the determination, persistence, tolerance and compassion that one gives to our fellow human beings – all of them plus one – our self.

And, oh, yes, it absolutely is a challenge, … yet, once more….  as Christ said, “For man it is impossible, but with God, all things are possible” – even changing and growing within our self.

I would go so far as to say, that ONLY with God, is this possible.  

Having All the Answers?

When I hear someone say, “Black Lives Matter”, I imagine and believe their meaning with their words continues with “Black Lives Matter, Too”. I don’t get a sense that they’re trying to diminish any other person or group, because I imagine their experience is one of being and having been diminished by others. Still, this very well could be just how I think about this.

As I watch this and similar movements, questions come up for me. One question being is with those who say, “Blue Lives Matter.” Do they mean, “Blue Lives Matter, Equally” or do they mean “Blue Lives Matter, More” ? Do they believe that society diminishes those people who wear the blue uniform, and society considers them “less than”, and therefore this phrase needs supported? I don’t know. And I admit, this could be just questions that I have. Everyone else could already know for themselves.

When I hear someone say, “All Lives Matter”, do they mean “All Lives Matter, Equally” or are they also thinking “All Lives Matter, but not equally.” Again, I don’t know. It’s always up to the individual, as to what they think and feel – and what they reveal to others. And I can’t help but ask.

I know that we humans can say one thing and mean another. We can also say something, and have people misunderstand our meaning. And, I will still admit that all of this could be just me and how I think. Everyone else may already have all their answers.

May God bless every person’s effort to seek wisdom and understanding.

“Changing the world alone doesn’t change the world. Changing ourselves – our own hearts and minds – healing our relationships – expressing compassion and understanding – giving patience and kindness – this changes the world – more than anything we could do to the world.” (The Rainbow Cards, ©, 2021, by Jodie Senkyrik)

In the Light of Day

There are many in the world, right now, that are saying, “I have the truth.  Come to me for the truth.”  We see people saying this in politics, on the internet, social media, television, radio, etc.  Also, right now, there are many in the world that eagerly seek to blame and condemn others, saying “the others are lying”, “media is lying”, “this person is lying”, “those people conspire in bad activities”, “this or that group is corrupt and wicked”.  There are many, right now, in the world who get paid A LOT of money to say just these words.

At the same time, we humans carry fear with us as we live our life.  There is plenty that triggers us to fear.  I won’t list the litany of all the triggers.  Some of us humans even want to trigger fear in others – not always for underhanded reasons, but sometimes to sound an alarm of things that we personally fear.

In dealing with being human, when we’re caught up in words people say and the fears of people, we can forget that as spirit beings living in human bodies, we are not originally of this world.  We can forget that we came from spirit and will return to spirit.  We can forget that we came not to add to fear to the world, but to add to truth, – and not mankind’s truth, but the truth of Spirit.  We came to help share the truth which even Christ worked to bring into this world, and still works to bring into this world – even when Christ’s messages may get misinterpreted, distorted, misunderstood, changed, usurped, refabricated, remade, altered, or even dismissed or rejected.

However, as it turns out, the simpleness of Christ’s message makes it easy to return to His original message:

“Love one another as I have loved you.”

“Love God above all else, and Love your neighbor as yourself.”

“Perfect Love casts out fear.”

“For mankind, it is impossible, but with God, all things are possible.”

Christ, or put another way, the Light and Life of the World does not hide in the shadows of the Internet nor behind anonymity, seeking to be anonymous while condemning selected people, criticizing whomever is chosen as an enemy, attacking people or trying to bring separation and blame. Christ teaches in the light of day, in simple ways, out in the open, with words that demonstrate Love, again, and that Love is real. 

But, not everyone wants this.

Christ speaks of unity and brotherhood of all people and all life. Christ speaks of the Father/Mother/God’s Infinite and unending forgiveness, mercy and Love. He speaks of the joy God feels when someone, who regularly chooses acting without love, living in shadows and hiding behind anonymity, chooses instead to seek the Healing of Loving Kindness. 

But not everyone wants this.

***

The Good Friend

All things from Christ come from Love and come with Love.  This is why all things from Christ heal individual hearts and shared hearts. Everything from the Christ within brings us out from hiding in the shadows – into the light of day where goodwill towards each other becomes real again. Christ/Love gives the best of Life – Love – to all people equally and does not hold back on giving tolerance or mercy continuously. Christ tells us that if we choose to condemn others or remove the splinter from another’s eye, then first remove the huge chunks from our own. Christ says, “let he who is without sin cast the first stone.” Then says, “Neither do I condemn you.”

There are many, many, many that choose condemning anyone they can think of or with whom they disagree.  There are many, many, many that choose hiding in the shadows and behind anonymity, again and again.  But, Christ’s message is about Loving one another and not about conspiracies, slander, or blaming.  He knocks at the door to our heart and mind.  He brings healing of our feelings of despair and aloneness.  He offers His hand again to help us show tolerance and understanding in the open, in the light of day for all to see.

At any time, we can choose for ourselves to follow the many, many, many who are generous in their condemnation and judgement towards anyone  that disagrees with them or whom they choose as their enemy. At any time, we can choose for ourselves to follow slandering and throwing volumes of disrespect on anyone who doesn’t side with us. 

Verbal abuse and verbal violence are available to anyone who wants abuse and violence to be part of their heart and mind, and in turn, what they offer the world.  Deciding to no longer believe that all people are one people on this Earth – is available to believe and has many that choose to teach this.  Denying that all souls are equal in the Eyes of God, – saying this is the truth – and denying Christ’s words “I will never leave you or forsake you” is available if we seek this to be in what we participate.

***

Christ really does say to us, “I will never leave you nor forsake you.”  There are many, many, many that seek to teach us that we are lost and alone unless we follow them only, and hide with them in their condemning of the group of their choosing.  Even we who sincerely seek the Truth of Christ, can become lost, if we don’t yet know that this journey of seeking truth starts with unlocking the door of our own Heart.  While Christ honors His own words, we don’t give the same words back to Him.  For us, we still stumble and fall in our efforts to say back “Christ, I will never leave you nor forsake you.”  For us it is to pick ourselves back up, dust off our clothes and try again, to walk the path of following Him.

Ultimately, we can only ask ourselves in our own heart, in the moment we are still with our own thoughts, “do we seek to throw stones and add to the condemning and judging that many others want? Do we seek to add to the conflict which many, many, many others choose?  Do those who we align with – seek to cast the first stone ….

… or does that which we seek offer forgiveness and mercy while we let go of our stones of judgement and condemning? Does that which we seek point to how we can heal our own hearts and relationships, then point to how we can feel a sameness even with those who differ from us? 

Better choices are available to us.  Better solutions are available to us.  Better hearts are available to us.  Greater love is available to us, for us, in us and to heal us.

Love is real.  Christ is real.  And these are easy to say “no” to.  Yet, when better choices are available, and instead we say, “Yes” – instead seeking within ourselves – to unlock the door, open it, and say, “Lord, you are welcome within my heart and mind.  Teach me the Truth of You.  Show me the way of Loving,” Christ will not hold back and will never hide from us.  Christ will not hide behind anonymity.  Christ will not speak with slander or of conspiracies.

The Christ, who exists within our own Self, ready to be expressed to ourselves and others, will show us the Joy of the Infinite One in helping us to recognize that Oneness with others is the path of the Infinite Consciousness of Love.  Christ will show us that nothing separates us from the brotherhood of life except what is in our own mind and our own heart towards others.  Christ teaches us that there is no blame of ourselves and others that cannot be forgiven.  Even today, He speaks of acceptance, tolerance and Infinite opportunities through Infinite Patience, which are available to us in any and every moment in which we can unlock the door to the Light and say, “God, are you there?  Please, come in.  Please, help me.  Help us.  Teach me of you.  Teach me of Love.”

God bless us, Everyone.

“No one speaking of judgment and condemnation speaks for God. No one speaking fear and retribution speaks for God. The one speaking love and forgiveness, kindness and mercy –
This one speaks for God.” (The Rainbow Cards, ©, 2008-2021, by Jodie Senkyrik)

Q-A: Truth vs Lies – What Fruit from What Tree?

I received this [conspiracy] E-mail [message] a couple of days ago… which you may have as well, & I’m overwhelmed at the specific info it entails. … This may or may not resonate with your intel, but have a look.” S.S.

My response regarding what the conspiracy email message says…..

Everyone of us, has our God-given freewill to choose our own path, our own beliefs, and our own choices about participation to learn and grow. This includes our choosing our own struggle with discerning truth and lies. Of our own freewill, we can even choose to be honest —— with ourselves and others – or we can choose to lie and mislead others and ourselves.

https://www.pinterest.com/pin/446700856774895812/

Yet, stepping back and looking objectively, when we consider the intentions or “agendas” of others, we can understand that every soul has both good and bad within us. We have both selfishness and unselfishness in us. As Edgar Cayce said in one of his readings, “There is good in the worst of us, and there is bad in the best of us.” There is no situation, circumstance, vocation, organization or anything where this is NOT the case. Everywhere there are human beings – souls – Edgar Cayce’s statement is true. No one is all good or all bad.

This principle of human character includes those people who have chosen to go into public service – our elected officials – who are people – souls – who have chosen this path (for many thousands of reasons,) and this truth does not change within them just because they disagree with each other and sometimes ourselves…. or just because they get accused and blamed – in other words, ‘demonized’.

There is no escaping the fact that we are all human beings, and they are all human beings, no matter how many times we humanly demonize these human beings inside our own human heads. They are people who experience all the feelings and emotions, ups and downs that all people experience. And there is bad in the best person who has chosen to be an elected official. There is good in the worst person who has chosen to be an elected official. —- As I said, there is good in the worst of people, and there is bad in the best of people.

When it comes time to decide who we trust, we must recognize this duality within ourselves, first. We have both good and bad within our self. At the same time, we must face that where trust is concerned, we do the best we can at figuring out who to trust and how to trust. And we don’t always get it right. If we try again, … and again and again, we can learn from our mistakes – whether it’s ourselves who bring both good and bad, or another person who brings both good and bad.

Because this principle of character is true, no one person is all trustworthy and no one person is all untrustworthy. Therefore, we must recognize that learning about trusting is a learning path only, and never a path of all-knowing who to trust and all-knowing who to not trust.

In our world, now, there are many that want us to buy into their version of the horrors of humanity and their version of the evils of the world, that they are willing to sell to us, with their intending us to follow their instruction on how to save ourselves from “All those others” who they claim “are the evil ones.”

It is very, very easy to sell fear, horror and evil. It is very, very easy to find ourselves overwhelmed, and then believe their claims of the horrors, which they tell us they alone can save us from – when they then tell us, they alone should be trusted.

Even if we are on any type of spiritual learning path, it is easy to be pulled away from the Truth which Christ teaches, because those who sell the story of the evils of others, yell loudly and scream often. They tell us that they alone know what is going on with the evils of the world, and they alone know who is at the center of the evil.

But yet, at the same time, Christ teaches Truth with a soft voice which quiets fear and turns away wrath, which makes us to lie down in green pastures and leads us beside still waters – from the place of loving kindness. We can ask ourselves, is there a stillness or kindness in those that sell their version of horrors and fears?

Christ teaches from patience and from compassion. Does anyone find patience and compassion in the messages meant to further demonize, or warn others to fear the “evil people” which they selectively chose for us?

Christ teaches from forgiveness and mercy. Does anyone find forgiveness and mercy in the writings of those who want us to follow their version of their fear reality and their version of their “secret truth”?

Does anyone find support for mankind’s brotherhood, encouragement for God’s Unending Acceptance and Love, or help with God’s unity and understanding in the writings that tell us that we should be afraid of the people who they tell us to?

If we find no love, no forgiveness, no mercy, no compassion, no patience, no kindness, no brotherhood, no understanding towards others, no support, no courage, no unity with Life and with other human beings, in these writings, or what they tell us, then Christ is not the source of what they offer, nor does He have any connection with it.

They live from triggering adrenaline by their words, selling panic and worry, and marketing fear, for the purpose of bringing harm and abuse, for their own gain. They will sell their panic, worry and fear to anyone who tends to have little interest in seeking God’s Truth, or who does not care about what Christ has to offer. They will sell themselves as “savior”, and claim only they have “truth”.

The Edgar Cayce readings will always tell us that there is good in the worst of us, and bad in the best of us. This reality helps us to see that all of us are equal in our struggles and challenges of being human, and also equal in the eyes of God, who Loves us without reservation – and without even thinking twice about it – all of us equally regardless of how many times we stumble and how great we create a mess in the world.

Eventually, we come to realize that we have the freewill to choose which we act on – which we decide to bring into the world – the good or the bad, the selfish or the unselfish. We then step forth in doing the best we can with bringing forth our choices.

In the same way, we have freewill to choose what to bring into the world with regards to: fear or love. The Light offers kindness, compassion, encouragement, forgiveness, mercy – this FRUIT from the TREE of Christ’s teachings of love, kindness, compassion, forgiveness, brotherhood, courage, faith and the like. Those who peddle fear offer fruit from the tree of fear: separation, isolation, hatred, anger, abuse, harm, confusion, darkness and despair – for these are what grow from the seeds of the fear being sold.

What do we then choose to give to others? What do we then choose to give to those we love? From what tree do we choose to give fruit? There are many of us souls who will choose – of our own freewill – fear and all that grows from this fear. There are many of us souls who will choose – of our own freewill – love and all that grows from love. But, we cannot choose both at the same time. We cannot choose both good and bad at the same time.

We choose day or we choose night. We choose light or we choose the dark. And we choose LIFE or we choose DEATH. We choose Love or we choose fear. But, we choose. And, we choose every single day. And we choose every single hour and minute and second.

We are called to learn, as best we can, what Christ offers. We are called further to try to put the seeds of the Tree of Love within our hearts, so that we can bring forth the fruit which is kindness, compassion, patience, courage, faith, forgiveness, brotherhood, courage and more. If we don’t know what Christ offers, we need only ask Christ directly, “Lord, what do you offer me – me, who is your brother and sister?”

Who do we want as our savior?

Choose.

The Rosetta Stone of Consciousness

As surprising or confusing it might seem, Jesus’ words, “Love God above all else, and love your neighbor as yourself” are the key to understanding existence of EVERYTHING. It’s not readily understood at a human level, but it is the key that unlocks all the mysteries of existence within this Universe and all Universes. I say this not because I think it is true, but because the very life within these words, rings out this meaning and this awareness. The very vibrations of these words carry forth the effort and desire to unlock not just people’s hearts but their minds to know that which awaits us in our understanding.

What the human race is missing so far, is that these are not just pretty words. Rather practicing these words opens up the step by step approach to understanding and putting together the puzzle that is our self and our relationship to God and the Universe of Universes. We are putting together the puzzle of all things, and these words are the blueprint for finding the pieces, then learning how they fit together. They are not just spelling out how to live in this Earth, nor just how to live in the physical universe. But, they spell out how to discover and open the non-physical dimensions of existence.

These words are the Rosetta Stone of Consciousness and of understanding the realms of existence/consciousness. These words are the primer to help us unlock piece by piece – awareness of all creation – helping us climb the stairs one step at a time to that place where we understand and integrate, and live from this awareness.

With each step on the stairs of understanding, as we practice these words and all teachings that emanate from these words, we gain another piece of the puzzle. That which we learn and practice becomes part of us – part of our flesh and blood in the physical world, and the spiritual world.

This is true, because we exist in both worlds at the same time, whether we are aware of it or not. (Side note: We are spirit beings, for all times, whether we are aware of it or not. We are physical beings only while we inhabit (and are fused to) this body.)

Meditate on His words.

On Our Death Bed

With Covid-19 causing many deaths in the US and everywhere on the planet Earth, this blog title is sadly realistic for people dying “before their time” or what we would think would otherwise be before their time. Who among us is ready for when our last moments on Earth arrive?

None of us or perhaps a very extreme few of all the billions of people on Earth.

However, we don’t consciously choose which moments are our last moments. It is a sober experience to consider. This experience is seemingly forced upon each and every person that gets Covid-19 – to consider the outcome – recovering or dying. Along with this experience forced upon us, is what we assume is part of the experience – looking back on our life –

“…when there’s no more lying
about living or dying,
when there’s nothing left,
but life or death.”

Usually we don’t look back at our life, unless we’re forced to … like some people who are in the hospital, either recovering or dying from Covid-19, but alone and separated from family, …

In a person’s final moments, I don’t think anyone on their deathbed thinks…

I wish I’d spent more time at the office.
or
I wish I’d watched more television.
or
My regret is that I didn’t get better at video games.

Many are dying from Covid-19, right now, … and dying from many other things. As I mention above, some are dying alone, with no family around them – away from those who love them or they love.

Are their last questions to themselves:
“Should I have shown more disrespect to others in my life?”

Who among us dying in a hospital bed might think:

“I wish I would have had even greater resentments and bitterness towards people in my life?” as they lie in the hospital bed hoping they could see their loved ones.

or “I wish I could have placed more guilt and shame on people with whom I’ve been in contact.” while their family and friends are somewhere else.

In the same way, who among us would consider,

“I wish I could have blamed more people for problems in my life and problems in the world”,

or

“I wish I could have been even more condemning and judgemental of people.”

Sadly, I can’t help but think that there are many of us human beings who are walking around in the world, making the choice to be bitter, to blame, to condemn, placing shame and guilt, choosing these attitudes in our lives, not dying from anything at this time in our lives, and not looking back on ourselves and the life we live.

But, if we think about it, at anytime we can consider other questions to look at how we’ve lived our lives so far – questions usually kept back to only ask ourselves on our death bed:

Did I ever love anyone?
… so that they could know what being loved is?

Did I ever forgive anyone?
… anyone who was not a friend or family or who I knew?

Was I ever kind to anyone?

Did I ever show mercy to anyone?
… anyone who was not someone I liked or loved or even knew?

Did I ever help comfort anyone suffering or in pain?

Was I ever patient with anyone who desperately needed it?

Did I ever experience suffering for the sake of the lives of any others?

Did I ever feel compassion towards anyone?

Was I ever unselfish with what I had, in any way with anyone?

Did I ever give of myself for someone else’s life?

Was I ever humble among others who had less?


In some ways, we can indeed say “Yes” to many of these questions, which, obviously, in our last moments of life, will be the more important questions to us. But yet, we don’t have to wait. We can ask ourselves these questions at anytime – like when we wake up each morning, or when we go to bed each night.

“In a world with no forgiveness and no mercy, there will be no Peace on Earth.

“God bless us, Everyone.”

The Good Within the Bad; the Bad Within the Good

The Edgar Cayce Readings tell us “There is good in the worst of us. There is bad in the best of us.” Who else may have said this? Martin Luther King, Robert Lewis Stephenson, Bishop Fulton Sheen, Abraham Lincoln, Thornton Wilder, Carl Jung, and many more.  It is consistent throughout time and recognized for its forthright honesty about we human beings.

Each of these sources are talking about human beings. They are reminding us that everyone has both the light and dark within us, both selfishness and unselfishness within us, both the light and the shadow, both the left and the right, the forward and the backward, the up and the down, etc within us. (And as I have said, “There is a liberal within the consciousness of every conservative, and a conservative within the consciousness of every liberal.”  “There is a Republican within every Democrat and a Democrat within every Republican.”)  And if we’ve come across this saying and taken it to heart, we’ve pretty much only considered it relevant to human beings.

But, it can be considered in other ways, too. For example – the choices we make as human beings.

When we make choices of how to proceed, we weigh both the good and the bad.  When we finally make the decision/choice, neither the good nor the bad disappear or are dissolved from existence.  Neither are both the good and the bad turned into both good or both bad.

There is no choice that is made that is 100% “good”, and no choice that is 100% “bad”.  (Notice the quotation marks.)  This is because we are individuals deciding only for ourselves (or our group) as to what is a good decision and what is a bad decision.  What is a good decision for our self, can absolutely be a bad decision for someone else.  That which can bring good results for our self from our choices can absolutely bring bad results for others.  In other words, the circumstances of our own personal choices and decisions are good for some people in our lives and bad for other people in our lives.

This is the world we so often see when we look around on this planet.  We many times see everything in our lives and in this world as black and white, good or bad, right or wrong, but rarely ever as both, or the gray area in between.  Oh, sure, we know life is a mixture of gray areas.  But, when push comes to shove, we back ourselves and others into the corners of black/white.

Right now, you may think I’m writing about race issues, but I’m not.  However, since you’re right and I’m wrong, then I must be writing about race issues.  Except that I’m writing about that which is within the one individual, so this must mean that I’m writing about the issue that within every white person is a black person, and within every black person is a white person (especially if we see the other person as a stereotype, as well as if we see the other person as a cosmos unto themselves.)

Or I’m writing about all of the above – how we see the world – and how we aren’t yet seeing our self.

In our political arenas, in general, many of us are seeing things as black and white, liberal and conservative, Democrat and Republican, as well as vice versa.  Therein lies our problem, that if we only see these factors, we’re only choosing to see the black/white side of our choices.  And this carries over into our everyday lives – with our relationships, with our attitudes, and with our religious/spiritual beliefs – and whether we choose violence or nonviolence, abuse on not, insults or not, disrespect or not, and compassion or not, patience or not, kindness or not – eventually with whether we choose to Love God above all else, and Love our neighbor as ourselves…. or not.

Yet, it is still possible to step back from black/white, right/left, them/us thinking, feeling, and responding.

We all value different things in life.  We come by these values through our experiences and learning.  We find what we like and dislike – what we hold more important – through living life.  Since everyone lives a different life than everyone else, we’re going to learn, experience and come to value different things in these different lives.

With our values, we can sometimes come to believe that our own values are the only values worth …. valuing.  Without realizing it, we are then saying our experiences are the only experiences one can gain from – our learning is the only education worth learning.

Of course, we would never consciously acknowledge this lopsided thinking, but when we choose black/white thinking, like we generally are tending to do right now in our world, this is what we are inferring.  Our views are the right views, our values are the real values, our education is the correct education, our values are the only values worth having.

In actuality, for the most part, none of us are this 2 dimensional in our thinking.  We do have room in our paradigm for people who value different experiences and learning.  But, ultimately, we’ve taken up the habit of judging others because of the reason that they have different thoughts, beliefs, and values.

God alone knows what all is in a person’s heart – that which we think, which we fully believe and that which we value.  We human beings don’t, even during those times that we solidly think we do.  But, we are almost automatic in our judgement of another person for what we think, believe and value.  In addition, we can compare that which we individually value to what God values, and the one thing that’s true in this comparison is how monumentally we fall short compared to what God values.

It is in the judging that we get off track.  It is in the criticism of others’ differences that we start missing the greater learning.  It is in the diminishing of others’ experiences and of what others have learned through living life.  It is in not recognizing that others value different things in life based upon their soul’s different journey.  This shortcoming becomes a form of disrespect of the soul that God created, and the circumstances in which the soul is experiencing human life with all that comes with their life.

In the judging, we are, once again, taking a bite of the apple from the tree of the knowledge of Good and Evil.  We are, once again, moving ourselves out of the garden, within which we have been meant to be.  In the judging, we are also judging ourselves and that part of our self of which we are yet unconscious – the yin within our yang, and our yang within our yin – or possibly in this case – our liberal self within our conservative self and our conservative self within our liberal self… and on and on.

Sure, we can always choose to hold onto our black/white thinking – our right vs. left thinking – for an eternity if we so choose, and an eternity after that, and another eternity after that.  Or we can begin to let go of our judgement of others since they have come to learn to value different parts of life than we have.  We can begin to let go of our judgement of others who hold different things in life to be important.  We can let go of our judgement, in effect, letting go of thinking that our life path is God’s life path for all human beings which would thus “teach all humans the same values and same beliefs” as our self.

It is in letting go of our judging others (and everything about them) that we can begin putting the apple back on the tree.  It is this that helps us to step out of the duality of the current world – the conflict and discord of the current world.

Oh, sure, there is still learning from each other and challenging each others’ beliefs that we still go through and experience.  Good thing, too, for what would life be like if no belief or thought were ever challenged – ever?

Letting go of judgement doesn’t mean there are no consequences, for who among us thinks God would no longer have karma be alive and well.  The principles of karma, or as I call it, “soul activity echoes”, would simply happen without judgement – AS IT DOES NOW without our being aware of this fact.

It is judgement which has created duality.  It is letting go of judgement that brings unity and oneness back for us to experience, and perhaps in turn, value, and perhaps value more so than so many other things in life – to the point that we practice letting go of judging regularly – to the point that we find our way back to caring for the people who used to be in our life and who we cared about before – and still care about except for the fact that they think differently and believe differently.

And except for the fact that when digging deep down, it turns out that we find that we value the same or similar things as people who we care about – like love, kindness, compassion – like forgiveness and mercy – and like letting go of judgement for where they are at in their life, heart and mind, and the feeling of oneness and unity with which letting go of judging them then brings us to experience.

God bless you all.

Praying for Now

When we see what is happening in our world, our nation, our state, etc., regardless of what our POV’s, our paradigms, our opinions, and our feelings are, one real thing we can do is pray :

“God, help us.  God, help us.  God, help us….”  … ALL.

On ALL sides of the issues are souls.  Through eternity are all the souls struggling, in sorrow, in pain, seeking …. that which is a better way …

… EVEN WHEN horror, more sorrow and more pain is what we create.

It is the prayers and meditations for ALL that flows through the Christ.  It is the healing of ALL life that is the source of power within Christ.  Not just the people or things we personally want…. but ALL life.

When we leave the prayer to God to fill in the rest, which requires us to believe that God/Christ knows better than we do where and how our prayers can help ALL, God carries our prayers to help heal ALL.

When we pray for ALL souls – which includes ourselves – who bring forth pain and suffering for others – which we all still do in some way in our lives – this is when we connect to the way that leads to accomplishing the purpose of the prayers and meditations.

“God, help ALL life.  God, help ALL life.  God, help ALL life.”

*******

We will see things get worse for so many of us.  As I’ve said in so many postings on this blog, we are entering into THE dark times, or more accurately “darkened times” – darkened because these times include the manifesting of more events which have little love and little light in them – far away from Love and Light.

These times are the “3rd of 3 Events” which I’ve spoken up for years.  These times are created by consciousness which seeks to not manifest Love and Light.  This consciousness has been growing from and is the combined consciousness through thousands of years, and through hundreds of millions of souls, if not over a billion souls throughout time on this planet – throughout the existence of mankind.

We are experiencing the manifesting of much of this darkened energy in order to engage the higher part of ourselves to bring forth Light and Love, and forgiveness, and mercy, and compassion, and patience, and long-suffering (which we’re experiencing) and more….  into the relationships we have with people and ALL life – both directly in our life and indirectly in our life, because we are on the same planet with ALL human beings.

Our prayers and meditations are the medical response to ALL souls suffering, in sorrow and pain, right now.  We are the front-line of the energy of this planet – and our prayers and meditations are the treatment and medicine for ALL.  This energy doesn’t just create a new environment, but it can and does strengthen, raise, and enliven/activate the Spirit, Power and Love active in the planet – within the hearts and minds of individual people/souls.

And remember, we are not the Master Physician.  We are the healing assistants saying, “Here I am, ready to help.  Guide me in how I can.  Use my prayers and meditations for God’s plan for ALL life.”

There is much more to be said about right now, and I will add as much as I can as time continues.

God, help us, ALL.  God, bless us, ALL.

Breathing In and Out

So many helpers, gurus, speakers and teachers speak of our choosing to change ourselves and showing better qualities for our life and times – for on into the future. But, I don’t think we need to do that – for the future, that is. I think we can simply do it for a single moment of our lives.

I think we don’t need to take on such a huge-future task.  I think we can choose from our better heart and mind to love and show the many forms of love, … yet only in a moment – a moment of our life – that particular moment in which we find ourselves taking a breath in and letting it out – in the moment of our life in which we find ourselves breathing.

It is whenever we find our self in that moment that we’re breathing, in that moment, it is easiest to choose to express the better qualities of being human.

Whenever we find our self in a moment that we’re breathing in and out, in that moment, it can be easier to choose to show kindness and mercy.

If we find ourselves in a moment that we’re taking a breath into our lungs, in that moment, we can choose to be patient with another.

We don’t need to offer these qualities in those moments in the future which we haven’t yet taken a breath. We don’t need to show these qualities during the breath that has already gone into the past.

This awareness is only for a special moment in our lives – the moment in which we are breathing air into our lungs in our chest. Are you breathing air into your lungs at this moment? If so, then try this and see.

In this moment, we can choose to learn and understand about another person’s human experience. In this moment, we can choose compassion for the person we see going through hard times. In this moment of breathing in and out, we can choose to extend mercy from within our heart and mind. In this moment of taking a breath, we can forgive.

Taking a breath in and letting it out is a unique experience happening in this moment right now in our lives. I don’t think we need to do it in the future. I think our choosing how to love our neighbor as ourselves, can be for only in the moment while we’re taking a breath in, and while we’re letting the breath out.

Realizing this sure could make it easier to love, since we only are asked to love in that moment that we are breathing.

God bless us, Everyone.

The Night Sky

Can you see human beings in this picture?

Look into the night sky and what do you see? Depth, light, energy, vastness?

This is the truth of what an individual Human Being is…. with depth of a Cosmos unto ourselves, with Light that we haven’t begun to conceive of, with energy beyond what we understand, and with a vastness of consciousness which we have never yet imagined.

Now, look at a cardboard cutout of a human being – one of those things that stand up by themselves.

This then is what prejudice and bigotry sees of a particular human being…. and believes this is the truth.

Look up to see the truth.

We Have a Choice

I posted this on social media and I’ll post it here, also.

“Let’s not become that which we hate. We can choose. If we hate violence, let’s not become violence. If we hate profiling, let’s not profile. We have many good leaders who have demonstrated for us how to walk among mankind with respect and honor towards others.

Martin Luther King did not preach violence. Ghandi did not preach violence. Jesus Christ did not preach violence. They demonstrated the best of humanity in the face of violence, and showed us that which they sought – respect and honor.

They died because people instead chose violence rather than respect and honor. But they remain our true and real heroes of the world. Let’s become that which we respect and honor. Let’s become like our real heroes. We can choose. Let’s choose to follow real and true heroes, because…

…because, there are some people who are leaders of prejudice, who love prejudice, who demonstrate prejudice and teach prejudice. These are the ones who lead into violence, who love violence, who demonstrate violence, and who teach and spread violence.

They seek to create more prejudice and more violence in their own arenas. These are true and real cowards. They choose their prejudice and their own leading of people into violence. They’ll look upon their own prejudice and their own spreading of violence which they help create in their world & they will forever know inside themselves that they are the true cowards.”

Q and A – Shut downs of April-May, 2020

Are you seeing another shut down like we just experienced? Thank you, in advance!  M.

Yes and No.  M, for the area you’re in, even though you don’t say what area you’re in, I see a continued need to follow all protocols in your area.  I see a continuation of high numbers of infections in the August-Sept months.  I don’t see an official shutdown, but rather many officials strongly considering it, AND rightly so, IMHO, BUT – the step I see them choosing is to strenuously enforce the guidelines.  There is a real possibility that high numbers can go into October if guidelines are not followed strenuously.

Remember, unemployment and financial difficulties will be temporary.  There is some financial help, but it will be difficult for so many people.  For other, many people, the alternative to temporary difficulties is permanent death.  If anyone feels that some deaths are okay to sacrifice for a better economy, then pick which family members you’re okay with dying of Covid-19.  Everyone who dies is a family member to many people.  It is equally likely that it will be in your family.  God help us all.

In Other Areas

In other areas of the US, and the world.  Yes, there will be some re-shutting down.  There will be conflict around shutting down.  There are many who like the adrenaline rush of gambling, and this is what the conflict is about – adrenaline.  Adrenaline is connected to fear, to aggression, to conflict, and to the “fight or flight” feeling with which we are all so familiar.

Put another way, … Adrenaline is related to living from the 3rd Chakra.  However, it is living from the 4th Chakra into which humanity is working to be lifted.  Many choose to live from the 3rd Chakra and don’t want to live from the 4th Chakra.  It is their right.

The different areas will all have a different  consciousness of people and this is what will eventually determine how the virus progresses.  The elected officials have the monumental charge of deciding what to support – opening up which will be a gamble with family members’ lives or shut down and have many unhappy, but alive, people most likely voting them out in November.

Make no mistake about this – do not ever think that things will ever be like they were before this began.  In the totality of the world, this virus has changed and will continue to change how we live our daily lives.  In the same way that 9-11 changed the whole world, the Covid-19 virus is the next thing to change the world.  It won’t be the last thing.

I advise everyone to expand one’s options and possibilities.  We tend to close our minds to new possibilities, because we mostly DON’T want to start anything new – including thinking of new ways.  We tend to like what’s worked in the past regardless of whether it has become harmful or not.  If any of us have trouble with pursuing expanding choices, then approach God to decide what is possible for Him and one’s self, and go from there.  Imagine different ways of making an income or making one’s life work out.  The old ways of the past are in the process of slowly dying out.  We are called to create new ways of living for the future.

Word of caution:  Throwing a tantrum doesn’t phase God, when it comes to whether we cooperate with God in the ongoing changes, or whether we fight it kicking and screaming – through violence, rage, judgement, criticism, insults or the like.  We’ve seen examples of the ‘kicking and screaming’ on TV and in the news.   We are called to be examples of how to cooperate with God’s efforts to help us.

Finally,

Obviously, every location will have some differences all around in facing the virus and it’s path.  But, the imagination, ingenuity and creativity of the people of each area will determine a great deal about how to go about reopening.  The old ways have become harmful and now, just how fatal they can be is “in our face.”

*******

I see the 2nd – 3rd week of June being the best time for most places to open up.  And I see, in general, in many specific locations. the 2nd wave happening late July to a possible 2nd week of October.

 

You Are Valuable

Each of us is so valuable.  We need others, and others need us.

Each of us is so worth our effort to help, to offer for others, to each one in need.

We are needed, even if we only help one other person.  Our life matters to that one other person.  We are valuable to that other person.

Each of us is so valuable.

Each individual, each person, each one of us – we are valuable.  We may feel forgotten.  We may feel worthless.  We may feel lost to the world, alone, disconnected, and unfriended.

But, the Truth is the opposite.  We are so valuable.

Would that I could give everyone who reads this the ultimate feeling and experience of being loved, by Infinite Love, across all time and across all space – known for who we are, and how we have lived, and yet still love for just being our self, … I would make it so.

But, each of us must choose for ourselves if we’re going to open to this experience or not open to it.

“I stand at the door and knock” – Infinite Love says to us every moment of every second, of every minute, of every day.

This is how close we are to welcoming in Infinite Love – Unending Love – the Love that enlivens us, and gives us life abundantly – to being loved Infinitely and without end.

Each one of us is so Valuable.

Whomever told us that we were worthless, was misguided, and has not yet chosen to be loved by Unending Love.  Whomever believed we are not valuable has never known how truly valuable each of us is.

For so many of us, our suffering is so deep.  Our suffering and sorrows lay deep within us, likely unknown to the people around us.  We may come to think and believe any number of things about ourselves or others, related to this suffering.   We may lose our own awareness of Love, of value, of worth and of others.  We may only experience being alone, having no one in our life who knows us anymore.

But, with every experience of alone-ness any of us go through, others of us are knocking at the door.  With every sorrow and pain any one of us – you – me – may go through, others of us are trying to find you.  We are your family and friends whose names you may not even know.

We are here to help you.

And, we need you, too.

We are your brothers and sisters.  We are your family members, your friends.  We are your parents and your children.

We are also the ones alone and forgotten, and we are the ones who ask for someone to help us, too.

We are the ones who are ready to help you – who know and love you, and know how valuable you are.

We are your friends, because we want to be, not because you have something we want, but because you are you and you are valuable …. and so are we.

We are together.  We need one another.  You are so valuable, because you are.  Even if momentarily forgotten, we are all valuable to each other.  And we try to remind each other of this when we stand at your door and knock.

*******

God Bless you, you valuable friends and family.

Q and A: Covid-19

I am living in Sweden and, as to date, there has not been any cover-up stories to soothe anxiety. It is the opposite among the news channels – they constantly talk about it and reporting numbers and rates. At first I thought it is the same as with the bird flue – a lot of panic but little substance to justify it. Now I am not so sure anymore. Jodie, if you have any information to us here in Europe about this virus that will help in taking precautions or put it in the right context (if the news are only catastrophical in order to sell), please let us know. I have tried to find other psychic predictions but only managed to get those who are feeding the fear rather than helping. I like you because that is not your approach.  M.

My apologies about my wording leading to your use of the words “cover-up”.  I don’t consider what I see as being a standard “cover-up”.  My apologies also about talking about the US with regards to this slant of trying to “be reassuring” in reporting and not giving an indicator about that not being the slant everywhere.

The European nation government representatives are taking this challenge and facing it head-on.  The governments of Europe have no choice but to do that – with as much inter-European travel that occurs, it is vulnerable to spreading it in the extreme.  High travel areas like Europe are very vulnerable, and so the choice to be as transparent and stark does have advantages and yet, some disadvantages.  Sadly, there are areas of the globe which, because of unsanitary living conditions in some areas – when they reach those areas, the virus will spread quickly.  India is jumping out at me, as having some of these areas – but not the only area.

Do believe that much work is being done by many people in organizations and companies to find effective ways of treating Covid-19 infections …. and will eventually over much time find a vaccine.

The feelings and fears of the people of the world are pulling on the media to report whatever information is collected – the more up-to-date, the better.  Sorely, some of the information coming out feeds the fears of the people.  And the fears of the people are the real trouble-making sources.  Fear is the world’s single greatest trouble-making process.  Even hate comes from fear.

What’s going to happen?

The results of spreading – numbers of infections and deaths – what I see is all over the board for all the different locations, and not possible to pinpoint as to any one path or a few paths of how things will manifest and how many people will be affected.  The paths of numbers, based on behaviors, are too numerous and diverse to discuss, and all of these paths – these different scenarios are looking to be fulfilled somewhere in someway.  Having freewill, people can and do change their minds on how to react and to act.  In the case of the spreading of the virus, caused by the actions or non-actions of people, I only see the action and non-action which people MOST-LIKELY, MAY and CAN carry out, because they are not collectively making all reasonable choices which they will ABSOLUTELY CARRY OUT.  Individual choice is never taken away from anyone.  So, people are acting from fear and panicking and that means Erratic with a Capital E.  So, what I see is “people panicking.”

That which I can see, which is easy to see, is the response to this spread of infection.  The response is strong and it will move those who can develop treatments – to do just that.  So far, I do see the slowing down of the world’s people from their extremely busy, active lives, which in turn, having the effect of  slowing down the spread, but not stopping it.  7.5 billion people are not able to stop living their lives.  We need food, shelter, water, income, etc, to live in this world.

The 3rd of 3 “Events”

Now, … I will add that I’ve written and shared here in the blog through the years, that I’ve been seeing very, very difficult times coming and BEGINNING in 2020, and going until 2026, when finally in 2026, greater cooperation starts happening in order to solve problems in each nation and in the world.  We are now in these difficult times and these things happening are the manifesting of the energies which bring these times of pain.  We are not able to put off or resolve much of the “low vibration”, or “dark times”, and the next 6 plus years.  We are now facing these difficulties in our lives.

By itself, the virus is not the entirety of the 3rd of 3 World Events, but rather 1 of many happenings which make these years added together as the “3rd of 3 World Events”.  The difficulties we are beginning to have and will have from this, is an example of the years 2020-2026 for the people of the world.

The Media

Don’t think of the media, as a whole, as “adding fuel to the fire”.  The consciousness of the people everywhere are pulling on the media to provide information and provide it quickly.  So, the media are each seeking to fulfill that which they are being sought to provide.  Also, this is not as much a media-fueled panic as one may believe, but rather a “people of the world” fueled panic.  Believe me, if no information was being provided, “WE” people would panic more, and then more damage would be done, because we don’t have enough information.

So, consider adding the awareness that there is also good coming from the media’s reporting.  The constant flow of information is – in fact – serving to help many calm themselves.  It’s like going to bed with a radio going in your arms during a time of hurricanes or storms.  People feel better when we believe we have our thumb on the pulse of what is happening.  We feel better when we think we know or someone knows where things stand.  It is easy to perceive the media as being a catalyst, but regardless, it is serving a purpose, as well.  There are enough responsible sources of reporting that are helping to bring as much information, as much “common sense” and as much hope as possible.

At the same time, there are some who are indeed throwing their version of gasoline onto the fire.

HOPE

So, sift through it as best you can, and pray, pray, pray, pray, pray for all life. And know that within our own hearts and minds, we can CHOOSE to have faith and trust in God, and believe that our prayers can help us through these very difficult times – no matter how these times manifest.

Wise Steps

Steps to Take

  1. Maintain one’s own good health.  Do that which improves or maintains a healthy body.  One’s own good health, if we can attain or build this, will serve us the best.  As we say in the US, “The best defense is a good offense.”  This means that all wise healthy decisions will serve as a stronger foundation for the possibility that the virus finds its way into our own lives.
    *
  2.  Work to maintain one’s own  spiritual path and practice.  Our effort at prayer and meditation help to bring about the higher vibrations which in turn, move us out of “the lower vibrations” – also known as the dark times – dark because of the lack of the light – which is higher vibration energy.  We are the tuning forks of this world.  We can choose to help raise the vibrations or we can choose to do nothing to help.
    *
  3. Put forth effort to try to sift through all the information that is being put out in the world about this and other problems.  Most of it !!! is simply opinions, conjecture, educated guesses and personal beliefs based on feelings, but facts do exist.  It takes effort.
    *
  4. Let go of judging people harshly for being afraid.  All of us have been afraid and so we can understand how easy it is for any human being to lose ourselves in our own fears for ourselves and fears for those we love.
    *
  5. Read the article I posted in 2018 on how to face these times:  The New Age of Man Approaches: Part 1 of 2.  In this article are some, hopefully, things to consider on how to approach facing our problems.
