The New Age of Man Approaches: Part 2 of 2

It’s not by violence. It’s not by hatred. It’s not by furthering selfish-interests. It’s not through yelling or adding to conflict. It’s not by condemning, judging, or criticizing others. It’s not through self-praise or self-righteousness or the opposite – by beating ourselves up or being unforgiving or unmerciful to ourselves.

It’s not through being a member of any particular nation, government or religion. It’s not by putting someone down or oppressing, or even forcing someone. And, it’s not by eliminating people through war or any other means.

We move humanity forward in this Earthly evolution of consciousness through the bringing forth of our patience, kindness, forgiveness, our long-suffering, compassion, understanding, love, mercy, our charity, expressing brotherhood and tolerance, and our meditation and prayer practices.

We move all of humanity forward via unselfishness – for all of humanity – hence why humanity does not move forward except through the Spirit of God being part of the motivating Spirit within people’s hearts and souls. Only through Spiritual efforts of bringing forth the Fruits of the Spirit will humanity as a whole continue to evolve in all ways that humanity can evolve.

This can and will take many lifetimes and many eons according to human time tables, each leading us further down our path. While it may seem a long time – even be our experience of a long time, in the framework of the Infinite Consciousness of God/Love, it is accomplished in a blink of an eye.

Yet, for us, today, it is an act of Infinite Compassion that we can come to realize that we can experience this evolution – which we can also call ‘healing’ – happening every day, through each moment which we contribute/help to bring about for those in need – which is all of us.  We can experience Love.  We can experience mercy.  We can experience joy, compassion, understanding, wisdom and in doing so, slowly become aware that we are experiencing the Consciousness of God – maybe not the “Infinite” part, but rather a part that we can absorb as a human.

As we are present with the current times, even witnessing this current day, the following additional principles can help as we walk the road we’re on.

– As difficult as it is to understand why this is – we are not here on the planet to save the Earth.  We are here on the planet, to help each other remember and reawaken to our spiritual nature and reality.  We can only do this by demonstrating the fruits of our spiritual reality within human realms and arenas – each aspect formed from love – oneness, unity, brotherhood, … forgiveness, mercy, patience, respect … faith, trust, knowing oneself, … Loving God above all else, and loving our neighbor as our self.  And yes, we can extend these fruits to the Earth, as well.

– Learn the lesson of “Asking for help”.  We’re not in this life to go through life alone or take care of ourselves alone.  We didn’t give birth to ourselves. We didn’t change our own diapers or feed ourselves at 1 year old, or clothe ourselves at 2 years old or determine to go to school at 5 or 6, or teach our selves math or reading or all about how to live our life.  As adults, we are so intertwined with the work of other people, that we can never honestly say that we’re self-sufficient since we didn’t build our own vehicles, build our own roads, build our own telephones, etc and etc. We live relying on the work and effort of the billions of people around the whole planet. All equipment and supplies reach us via the work of ourselves and other people. Even the most extreme living in the woods away from civilization, we are not the sole person influencing our staying alive.

God designed us to “need one another.” Learn the lesson of “Asking for help” – the demonstration of “our needing each another”.

– It is helpful if one of our prayers is always, “Lord, teach me the truth.

– Christ’s words to Peter are also for us – “You don’t concern yourself about that other person or the path they walk.  They are My concern.  You follow me.”  Forgiveness is letting go of insisting the other one learn and grow first – before we ever choose to learn and grow. The higher energy comes to heal the low energy when we let go of our **requiring** or **demanding** someone else change instead of ourselves in life or in that moment.  God has already willed that no soul shall perish, and this means all souls will be guided to re-find their healing path – but this is in God’s times and God’s ways, and not in human time frames or human-understood ways.

– During this time, we may be called upon to help others in ways we haven’t been helping before, or at a certain level of helping in which we haven’t gone before.  In the last days of Jesus, before His death, He worked to take full advantage of every moment left.  He sought to help as much as He could, and as many people as He could in the few days/weeks He had left.  Time was short, but so many sought His help, still.  His heart was dedicated to helping as many as He could, in all ways which the Father directed Him.

We are called also, now, especially in the days ahead, to help in ways which could stretch us to step up to another level.  It is for each of us to decide for ourselves, but we also, can ask God, “Here am I, Lord.  I’m ready. How can I help?”  Each of us is unique, and our own uniqueness brings us to be able to help in ways only we could help, because of our uniqueness.  The place we find ourselves, the skills we have, the feelings in our own heart – these are where God brings us — so that we can help in the place we find ourselves with the skills we have and the feelings in our heart.  “How can I, being the unique me, help in my unique way?”

– If we are seeing darkness manifest, feeling in despair or discouraged, then also look for the Light.  We are not abandoned, because even on the worst stormy days and nights, the sun/Son is still active above all, and is still actively continuing to work to break through clouds of darkness.  It is for us to shine our Light from our underside of the storms, also.

– God does not have all of us experience the same difficulties or life circumstances.  Even in the times ahead, there will be different difficulties and circumstances for different people.  Some people will go through great pain and suffering.  Some will go through minor difficulties.  Some will not go through problems at all.  This is also under God’s guidance, like the blind man Christ healed, saying, “This man was born blind for the Glory of God.”  His blindness was not from his own karma.  And Christ did not leave him in blindness.  Rather, with his asking, Christ healed him so others could believe in the healing which they witnessed happen that day, and in turn, then believe God is available to all who call upon Him in times of need.  God calls upon each of us to be someone whom God can work through for someone’s help – with each of us being on a different experiential path to help the different ways that are needed.

– We let the prayer, “Lord, help me be honest with myself.” be with us over and over through the day. We let it be a prayer that is in our hearts sincerely regardless of our judgment of it. Let the truth that it brings, come up from within, without judging what comes up within us to be accurate or worthy, or realistic. God is all things – even the ‘human-impossible’. God is the “All Possible”, the “Infinite Possible” and the limitless Imaginative Possible”, even while we don’t understand how this possibly could be.

– It is when we stand eye-to-eye, shoulder-to-shoulder, as equals, that we are united brothers and sisters, and not when we place ourselves above or below someone else.  Every one of us is an average, regular and normal spirit entity inside a physical body (of various species.)

The Suffering We’re Seeing

Currently in this country, while government officials fight back and forth, while political pundits scream at each other, while Americans yell obscenities at one another across the Internet, social media and in each others presence, we see the suffering again which so many of us have seen before.  The treatment of those different from us, the treatment of those who seek our help, the treatment of those we see as “not us” is happening again, as it has before in the Earth.  This is a very real battle, but not of guns, swords and other weapons – rather a battle of what level of character and consciousness we will choose to determine how we treat one another.

It can be called government policy.  Government policy has done this throughout human history.  But, look deeper into the consciousness of each soul that lives in the Earth.  This isn’t just a “policy” of immigration, although this time it is manifesting as that issue in the current news. There is another perspective which this demonstrates.

It is many things manifesting at once.  Although it would be vehemently denied on the surface, it is ALSO a demonstration of an attitude of inequality – us vs them – and “Inferiority of ‘them’ vs the Superiority of ‘us’ “, which many still hold in their souls in the same way that we’ve witnessed in our world today and in our remembered and unremembered history.”

A Part of History Forgotten

From the beginning of souls entrance into this world, there have been some souls who were known as or perceived as angels or higher spiritual beings – who entered into the human path in the Earth – entering both before and during when other species of humans were present. They were not necessarily all Angels of Light which we think of today. Some of these spirits choosing a darker, lower-vibration, non-Love based path, held onto their “awareness of their own higher nature” even though they were on paths of losing the higher connection. Still, as human beings, this awareness of having been at the angel level of consciousness, became unconscious within them as they trapped themselves (like so many of us) through the human reincarnation process.

This unconscious perception became a belief that something innate to themselves makes them greater than others.  With the attitude of superiority still within them, and held onto, they consider themselves better or greater than other souls in the Earth. This attitude can be seen throughout many, many different cultures and many, many historical societies in the evolution of mankind.  I want to add that this quality is not present within them alone, but can be found within all of us to some greater or lesser extent – per our own choosing.

Because the battle of Light and Darkness began before the Earth existed, and continues now during the continued creation of the Physical Universe, this battle has been carried into the realm of the Earth. While the battle between the Light and Darkness has before been a battle among different spirits, we now have a process of reincarnation and karma within the Earth realm, which lawfully structures the evolutionary process of souls and spirits in the Earth.

These principles and laws bring in place the requirements that each soul and spirit must now face our own selves within our own consciousnesses in order to resolve the imbalances which heretofore had shown themselves externally, and which are now to be dealt with internally. We brought into this plane our imbalances and shortcomings (which we had before we entered) that we manifested in the physical Earth realm, and now we must heal these within the physical Earth realm – including by learning the development of the awareness of Oneness with all life, and the equality of all life – instead of the previous belief and manifestation of superiority/inferiority attitudes and actions.

We are at a point in the evolution of consciousness within the Earth whereby this battle is coming to the surface of awareness (although not known under the spiritual terms and conditions I mention here – which generally people would laugh at if they heard it called this).  Because of choices made to serve self alone, which is one cause of the consciousness of darkness, some souls have little within their own character to hinder their effort to mislead themselves and others.  (Some of us have willingly been walking the difficult road, indeed, back to balanced equality and truth.)  Therefore, they foster fear and paranoia beyond what is truthful. Other souls already have been misled to believe that which would be different than what they would otherwise learn from within their own hearts. These are misled to believe that Love would not be the path to take, but rather fear being the path to take.

Continued after the Side Notes …

************************************

Side Note: these examples in the previous paragraph are also examples of the imbalances yet to be worked out within a person’s own consciousness/soul. Within our own character, we potentially have the desire to hinder the truth due to our own fears and agendas. Within our own character, we potentially have the attitudes of our self being “a better person than that other person”. Within our own character, we potentially have the inclination to not listen to our hearts – the seat of our connection to God, and to not listen to the call of Love which comes from our connection to God.
Side Note: The state of consciousness of fear and paranoia exists in the 3rd Chakra. This is the Chakra of adrenaline and conflict – fight or flight – war – battle – overpowering others – oppressing others – exalting ourselves over others and the like. We can demonstrate the 3rd Chakra states of consciousness blindly or “asleep at the wheel” or instead we can seek to wake up, and to open our eyes, which leads us to learn and gain an understanding on our way to transformation with the 4th Chakra – seeking the lesson of awareness which is teaching us understanding that this is what it is like for human beings – the horror and torment – for humans to struggle within the 3rd Chakra – constant fear (as well as learn other awareness lessons related to the 3rd Chakra.) In this insight leading to transformation, thus we step out of the 3rd Chakra consciousness, work on patience, understanding and compassion, and even feeling long-suffering for those stuck in the 3rd Chakra, and recognize the statement Christ gave us when He said, “Perfect Love casteth out fear.” 1 John 4:18. This statement of Christ’s also shows the path of transformation out of the 3rd Chakra into the 4th.

**********************************

To Continue…

Now, although we are still participating in the battle between the Light and the Dark, we are able to face these battles, not against other people, but within our own selves – within our own consciousnesses, our own attitudes and our own character. It is in this work – on ourselves within ourselves – where we are able to win the victory over our own darkness. And as we do this – change our own character from letting go of acts of darkness to acts of the Light – that the presence of God comes into our physical realm at ever greater levels of influence and healing at every level of the physical realm. It is this ever greater presence of God which brings the higher levels of Light, raising vibrations of all physical realms, including the Earth, and bringing about guidance and insight into steps we can take or make available to bring transformation into our societies, organizations, governments, and the healing and balance of ever more souls who seek healing and balance.

It is ever the process of choosing to open to greater Light within ourselves which helps to eliminate the darkness around us. To manifest this Light then comes the challenges to manifesting of the qualities which the Light has within it – compassion to those who need it and those who have none – understanding to those who ask for it and to those who throw it away – courage to listen to the wisdom and guidance coming from God who lives in our hearts, the 4th Chakra – humility to recognize that God is within every life equally and available to every life equally, and that our own paradigm is always changing, always evolving, and always creating room for more learning and more love – willingness to pray and meditate for the presence of God to increase in this Earth and all physical realms – patience for things which do not come to us on our own personal time table serving our self rather than God’s timetable serving all of us in possibly different ways – letting go of judging others by realizing that we’re also letting go of judging our past selves and possibly our future selves – mercy for those who suffer and are tormented from living in fear like we all have done, as well – and forgiveness for those who ask for it, for those who need it, and for those who reject it – with all 3 of these being our self, as well as others.

We live in a world where love exists and can exist more.  As with the Spirit that is God Consciousness – Love exists when we choose to love. This means that God is only brought forth when we bring forth Love. God is only manifest when we manifest Love. While watching the suffering happening, we are not helpless if we ask God to be within our hearts in order to direct our actions which we can manifest in our world – for the purpose of demonstrating actions based on Love instead of fear.

Christ and Buddha

Years ago, I had a dream. In this dream, I saw a wheel of light with a central rim, many spokes of light reaching outward, and then the outer tire encircling the whole. And I saw Christ. Christ showed me the meaning of these 3 parts. Christ was the central rim, all the different religions were the many spokes, and the outer tire was all the people who believed the various and different religions.

I don’t know if Christ is in dreams of others. I’d love to find out. I do know that this dream taught me the relevance and relationship that exists with the different religions and the central spirit of Love that religions try to teach to the people.

This Spirit which I call Christ, and many others call Christ has taught me that the main question and struggle is not about what name or organized religion we adhere to, but to the Spirit that exists available to all people and which resides in all religions that teach the One God.

Many will continue to war, saying “Our One God is the real One God and your One God is not the real One God.” In effect they’re saying, “Our way of believing is the real way to believe and your way of believing is not the real way to believe.”

I’ve written of this many times trying to say, “It’s not our beliefs, but what we do with them – using them to bring peace or using them to bring war – that matters most”. The dream did not show a  one spoke wheel. What wheel would work with only one spoke? The dream showed many spokes, because the tire spread all the way around – each spoke being that which connects that portion of the whole to the center.

Christ said many times, “I have followers that you don’t know about.” Does anyone think that He can’t or is not capable of being available to someone in another language, in another culture, with another name, under another symbol, in a different paradigm, in a different perspective, under a different image, wearing different clothes, in a different land, appearing as a different physical representation, unknown to “us”? Does anyone think He can’t speak to people in their own culture using their own language, presenting teachings that have One God of Love as the teachings’ central message, helping them start where they are, supporting who they are as the persons that they already are?

Does anyone think He can’t, in these different ways, give His message , “You’re already all you need to be, to be loved right now” ? Can He then help other religions to come about, carrying on the message – “Love one another” ?  The Bible describes the Pentecost, and says, “Each person understood the message in their own language and culture.”  Who among us thinks God cannot speak to each of us in our own way?

If anyone is wondering, look at how many religions speak the same message, “Do unto others as you would have them do unto you“, or the message, “There is One God and all of us, everywhere are God’s Children.”

As one example, does anyone think it CAN’T be true, that the Christ Spirit and the Buddha Spirit are One and the same? We can know one name and person or we can know the other name and person, or we can know them both as One Spirit, and begin to learn the lessons of the one we choose or choose both, finding that when we learn the lessons of one, we have also been learning the same lessons of the other.

The Sum of Ourselves

As souls living in the Earth, we create circumstances for ourselves and others.

What is not widely understood is that in looking at the sum of all human lives which a soul experiences, and under the umbrella of what is commonly called, “Karma”, when we, through our own freewill, create problem experiences in individual lives and/or in the world as a whole, we are then the ones who are given the divine task of cleaning up those problems.  Of course, this cleaning is done over whatever time or lives are needed, and with as much help as is needed.

Look out at all the people who want to help clean up the planet, or clean up societal issues, or clean up a certain aspect of life – the environment, the government, medical knowledge, law, spirituality, education etc.  They are people like you and I.  This means like us, they feel within their hearts and minds the desire to bring better things into this Earth – to help make the world a better place.

As you might understand where I’m going with this, almost all of the 7.3 billion people who want to help “clean up” this world – make it a better place for all people – are the one’s who helped create these problems from within our past lives.  (Not everyone.)  Like you and I, others have learned from mistakes of past lives, and this learning is now deep within our hearts and souls helping us be inspired, motivated and understanding of the benefits of creating a better world for all life.

Those of us who are ready to do something to help – whenever we are ready of our own freewill to be willing to do something to help – are the ones who enter into the middle of the “problems” in some form, and work at leading new ways into the future. If we led the way in creating the mess, we can find ourselves with opportunities to lead the way in cleaning up the mess.

This process is not punishment.  It is not obligation or penance.  It is a process of healing, forgiveness, mercy and more.  It comes from within our hearts – a new recognition of the opportunity for brotherhood among peoples – a recognition of the benefit and healing that comes with compassion and cooperation, kindness, forgiveness and patience.  This feeling of wanting to contribute to the betterment of humankind comes from the best and greatest part of ourselves.

I’ve had past lives in Atlantis, partially as military personnel. In several lives and in several roles. I went to war, attacked, harmed and killed people. Without choosing further learning on my part, I then experienced lives where I had been attacked, harmed and killed. However, from then a willingness to learn greater understandings of the human experience, that which I learned from human life as a whole, led to a greater understanding of much of the experiences I created for others on the receiving end of what I dished out.

After much of these “learning” lives, I became priests, doctors, Seers and other service roles which have given me opportunity to help heal whom I wounded, help clean up the messes I’ve made, help repair the things I broke, and help bring together that which I took apart.  This greater purpose gave me inspiration and life in the doing.

I’ve been so many different nationalities and races, that my memories of these lives  help me to listen to and feel more understanding of the pain and suffering of others, as well as willingness to work hard at letting go of knee-jerk judgment and condemning of people on a particular side. (I still stumble at times, though.)

I walk in my shoes as a white man this life, but I recognized the other lives still existing within me, and in some I still seek and learn to bring forth life rather than take away life – meaning I still have work to do.

I have past lives as female, so they are within me. I have past lives as other races, other social roles, different religions and different sexual orientations, so those experiences are within me. I’m not those people on the outside anymore, but I am, like every one of us humans, the sum of all my past lives, experiences and learning, even if remembering all these experiences doesn’t come easy or automatic, (as every human knows.)

Why do some people choose to harm if they’ve had past lives? Because we all “remember in our soul” different things. As I’ve written in other articles, the 9-11 hijackers subconsciously remembered being on the receiving end of tremendous Atlantean attacks – with their feelings and thoughts that Atlantis- a great technical power invading everywhere in the world- was wrong to do that to people. The hijackers wanted opposition and revenge. They remembered their hatred even though they didn’t remember their past lives.

A lot of us remember our hatred. A lot of us humans remember feelings of bitterness and desire for vengeance.  We may come up with today’s version of justification, but we are still the sum of all our feelings whether healing or harmful.  We still, of our own freewill, get to choose which feelings we will act upon.

Some of us subconsciously remember love, also. Some of us “remember” lives in which the Master touched our life – directly or through others. Some remember spiritual lessons which they’ve learned, some remember a drive within our hearts motivating us to greater purposes.

It’s not an easy mix when we remember something worthwhile. We can lead ways to better paths, but we need to remember that it was ourselves who helped create those worse paths. When we seek to help bring healing from pain and suffering, we have to watch out for our blaming anyone who represents the person who we were, back when we helped create the pain and suffering. In actuality, most of us, are struggling not with the other person, but rather with who we were in that past life.  We may “remember in our soul” that the “other person” is capable of harm, because we caused harm when we walked in those same shoes.

We are on this path together, meaning all of us are called to help heal all the different aspects of human consciousness that need healing within ourselves, whether we approach this task from one direction or some other direction. As we heal ourselves, we are helping heal the whole of human consciousness – not all in one lifetime, of course, but as Edgar Cayce says, “One hair at a time”.

If this seems daunting, just remember, we have eternity to do this, and as John says, “All you need is Love, dat, da, da, da dahhhhhhh.”  Love is “leading new paths into the future, instead of following the old paths of the past” – leading the new ways of love, cooperation, compassion, forgiveness, mercy, patience, respect, and letting go of judgment instead of following the old ways of selfishness, hatred, condemnation, judgment and disregard.

We’re in this world together.  We won’t have the same ideas, beliefs, paths and ways to manifest our hearts and souls, but that’s not the important part.  The important part is that since we have the freewill to choose what motivates us, we can choose to manifest the best healing parts within us, or the worst harming parts within us.

Of the Soul

Love is of the soul. The soul has both masculine and feminine. Both of these are capable of and regularly incarnate into a physical body. AND! because the soul benefits and grows from the enrichment of different experiences, the masculine and feminine can both incarnate into either the same or opposite gender bodies. We have such a diverse potential within this Earth to manifest and experience that we can create opposite gender experiences in order to develop greater understanding of the human experience.

Hence, why we create gay, lesbian and transgender experiences in our world. The diversity of experiences related to these can help souls learn. This doesn’t mean that being gay, lesbian or transgender will be forced upon a soul (unless karmic law is in effect). It means that each is a viable and useful incarnated experience. It also means that the feminine in a male body and the masculine in a female body is an available Earth option, should one wish to experience it.

Love is of the soul. We can experience love in opposite physical bodies than the gender aspect which manifests. Since love is of the soul, it is possible to love beyond the physical – to the soul. Those we’ve loved in a past life, can still be those we love in the current life. Still, freewill is active for both souls in such a reunion, and this does indeed give chance for either joyful or painful reunions as human beings.

Why are there so many white supremacists…?

My question to you is, why are there so many white supremacists here in the USA, who profess to be “good” Christians, who continue to hate Jews and accuse us of conspiracy and part of a Synagogue of Satan? Like my parents before me, I am concerned for my children and grandchildren.  Wandering Jew

First, I want to suggest that the real issue isn’t about “white supremacists”.  Everyone who hates even a little contributes to the hatred in the world.  The real issue and therefore the real question is “Why are there so many human beings that hate?”

But, I can offer you two answers to your question as you ask it.

For all human beings – our human hatred of another does not start in a book, nor a religion or culture, nor a form of government, philosophy, organization, scientific discipline, mathematical equation, or any structure that humans have built and use.  Hatred also does not begin inside any bodily characteristic – i.e. from our DNA leading to body differences like skin color.  Hatred starts inside the hearts and minds of each of us separate individuals who of our own freewill chooses for himself and herself what to feel and think, including who and what to fear.  This has been the case for millennia after millennia of humankind’s existence on the Earth.  Both Love and Hate are choices we can make.

Within any of us who chooses hatred with any of it’s various manifesting forms, within ourselves, each of us individual human beings then chooses that identifying  marker outside of the heart, using that structure or belief system or etc., etc., to support, justify or rationalize acting on our human hatred.

We can use each human belief system, societal structure or anything that exists in the world as a tool for building humanity and our relationships or a tool for destroying humanity and our relationships. All of these items then get usurped for any person’s purposes and agendas which we can hold within our own hearts and minds.

Study the basic precepts of all the structures and systems that I’ve mentioned in the paragraphs above and you’ll discover true wisdom and opportunity to unite people lie within them all.  But, not all people choose (freewill again) to practice the wisdom or take the opportunities to unite when they take hold of the precepts.  As I’ve said, we humans can take hold of a particular belief system in order to support and justify our own feelings, beliefs and actions, as well.

***

The second reason is really the real reason.  It is this:  If we look as deep as possible within the souls, hearts and minds of every human individual, we would see such suffering and pain, that could cause any manner of insane acting out, in order to find something that would relieve one’s own tremendous suffering which can exist within anyone for millennia after millennia.  Were we willing to look at anyone’s suffering and pain (even our own,) it would bring a greater understanding to all of us, and give us good reason to disarm our own weapons aimed at someone else.

Imagine two people on opposite sides of every issue saying this same thing directed at the other, “I hate the suffering and pain which your viewpoint causes and adds to mine and others’ lives.”  In effect, this is what is happening.

Healing both sides is a slow process which comes from taking one step at a time, trying over and over working at it, but it is a process that we are involved in through every prayer we pray, every meditations, every act of mercy, every effort at forgiveness and more.  It is difficult but with God, all things are possible.  Because no law can ever stop our prayers, meditations, mercy, forgiveness, patience, loving kindness, compassion, brotherhood, courage, unity and more happening within our hearts, the process of healing for all of us will never be stopped.  God in all His forms that we believe in is committed to this, and will see it through to the completion for all life.  Our calling is not to try to be perfect but to practice each of these – mercy, understanding, loving kindness, etc – in the human experiences that we face.

The harvest is ready.  Who will become a worker?

Previous Article: Love and Hate

The previous article was heavy.  It wasn’t very uplifting, inspirational, supportive or light.  Hatred is like that, isn’t it.

God’s gift to us isn’t hatred.  God’s gift to us, is that which we are made of – that which is our very essence – that which our spirit existence is based on – Love.  Love is our essence.  Love is our substance.  Love is the material of which we are made of.  God made us in His/Her own image and that image is Love.  We are made out of the spirit substance that is known and recognized to be Love.  For this reason, and from this substance, we live and exist.

We naturally gravitate to love, are attracted to love and long for love.  To all of us beings, love is the round peg finding a round hole – a square peg finding a square hole.

In contrast, we must struggle with all our might to avoid love, to disconnect from love and to push love away (and we do that.)  We must work hard to deny love, because our very own essence is what we are denying.

Many will say, “rubbish” to all this, in an effort to run away from love, in an effort to push away love, in an effort to say “no” to love – which in turn, is running away from ourselves, pushing our self away and saying no to our self.  We do this, because we’re so used to thinking this way – to say no to love.

Being True to Ourselves

We need not do anything to be true to Love.  We need not reach outward to find it, but rather settle into it.   We need not carry out any thought or activity in order to be the essence of love, because it is the substance of which our spirit is made of.  Even if we have shown very little of this essence of which we are, we were created at the beginning of existence as love, and we will exist as love – as our self and the true essence of our self – for all eternity.  Nothing will change this truth – no thought, no action, no behavior.  This is true for every living being.

The challenge is for us to choose how, and when we express the “true-ness” of our love existence.  At any moment, we can choose in that moment to express our true self, or on the other hand, express any of the other imagined necessary reactions to the experiences we consider not worthy of love or not worthy of a form of love.

God is the Consciousness of Love – the Infinite Consciousness of Infinite Love.  All the different levels of consciousness which we perceive in the Earth, from the “lowest” form of life to the highest form, are part of this Infiniteness and what is being referred to here.  Therefore, every action, thought, and behavior impacts God and therefore ripples out to Infinity and our self.

If we are unwilling to make these choice to express the truth of the substance of our essence – love – to be our self – our true self, how can we expect others around us or those we are aware of through the media or in positions of prominence to make these choices. If we choose to demonstrate expressions of “non-self/non-love”, how can we expect others to demonstrate the self that is love in return to us. If we are not willing to change our own expressing of that which is not love, how can we expect those who are learning from observing us – our personal example (of which their are many) to learn to change their ways of expressing.

From the essence of the substance of God that we call our individual self with our freewill, we choose how we express life in this world.  No one can force us to hate.  We can only agree to it.  Likewise no one can force anyone to love.  We can only decide to be willing and then carry love out.

Regardless of how much we argue that we were forced to act a certain harmful way, we still know that we were not forced to feel the feelings that led to that harmful act.  We were not forced to think the thoughts that fed the feelings.  We were not forced to perceive the other as worthy of harmful acts.

***

What this means is the phrase, “Be yourself” has a bigger meaning.  For us to be ourselves, we need only to be willing to love and to be loved – in other words, to BE LOVE – to exist as our self – Love.

It’s not easy, but with desire, hope, practice, patience, forgiveness, mercy, compassion and effort one day at a time, we can let ourselves be ourselves, more and more.
