Law of Attraction vs. William Shakespeare

Winter Sunset by Sheilan

Winter Sunset by Sheilan

All the world is a stage…

Yes we would all like to be in control our lives in order to find happiness, but is this really possible?  When you see the dream/illusion of Reality clearly, you know we do not have control at this level of Self and therefore not possible.  Inner peace comes when we realize at this level we are merely players of the play and have surrendered trying to control our storyline and accept our lives and destiny.  This does not mean our character stops making choices.  This merely means we understand at this level of self we are the player and not the playwright and we look to our soul and higher self as the author of our character and storyline.  In this knowledge there is great freedom to be found and this is our ascension and liberation.

To illustrate my point, read some of  William Shakespeare’s famous quotes and ponder their meaning.  I have placed the quotes in an order to read like a poem.

Sheilan 2014

. . .

“To be, or not to be, that is the question.”

“We know what we are, but know not what we may be.”

“When we are born we cry that we are come to this great stage of fools.”

“My crown is called content, a crown that seldom kings enjoy.”

“All the world’s a stage, and all the men and women merely players: they have their exits and their entrances; and one man in his time plays many parts, his acts being seven ages.”

“The very substance of the ambitious is merely the shadow of a dream.”

“A fool thinks himself to be wise, but a wise man knows himself to be a fool.”

“I hold the world but as the world, Gratiano; A stage where every man must play a part, And mine is a sad one.”

“Ignorance is the curse of God; knowledge is the wing wherewith we fly to heaven.”

“Let me embrace thee, sour adversity, for wise men say it is the wisest course.”

“There is nothing either good or bad but thinking makes it so.”

“Give me my robe, put on my crown; I have Immortal longings in me.”

~William Shakespeare

The Self and the Sleeping Self

The Dream Portal by Sheilan

Our Self, as a being, is made up of three parts: our physical self who hosts our ethereal self (higher self) and soul self.  The higher self is the host for the soul and who we are when we are not in this physical body.  The higher self is like a bridge for our consciousness; it is the go between to our soul and physical self.  The soul is the part of us which has no beginning and no end and knows no limits.  Only higher self and physical self has limits and has a beginning and end.

At the beginning of a Universal Cycle, the soul comes out of the One and is given a higher self to function and play in creation.  The soul stays in the higher self until the end of the Universal Cycle and then it either merges back into the One or the higher self enlists in the angelic kingdom to serve other Universal Cycles. The soul and higher self explores the spectrum of light via training grounds like earth or other planetary schools located thru out the universe.

When entering a school, physical bodies are given to the soul and higher self as vehicles. Bodies could be anything in the physical realm that a soul wants to experience and not limited to the human experience.  Often the soul will split it self into 4-6 parts in what is called life lines to have a more varied experience and to get the maximum out of school. When an expression of self is no longer needed or we have completed our lessons and schooling on a training ground, our life lines merge back into us.  Life lines have their own soul and higher self, which is connected to the original soul and higher self.  Most of the beings on the planet in this 3-D game are life lines of their original soul.  In such cases, the original soul and higher self stays on the other side of the veil guiding its players or life lines.

Sleep is necessary for regenerating all parts of Self. Though meditation is a useful tool, sleep is the paramount way for connecting to our higher self and soul.  If we are a life line player, sleep is essential for us to connect to our original, greater self.  When we are asleep and dreaming our higher self is awake and taking care of the business of Self on the other side of the veil.  When we are awake here our higher self is asleep there.  When we are asleep information is downloaded to us and when we are awake we upload information to our sleeping higher self.

If you have paid any attention to your dreams you know there are many kinds of dreams to experience.  Sometimes we dream about the lives of the other parts of us or life line players. Sometimes we are being instructed or informed and guided by our soul and higher self on a topic or issue in our life. There is so much more to dreaming than people who study dreams realize.   This 3-D reality is also a kind of dream, which can be changed without the physical self realizing a change has happened.

If you study and pay attention to your dreams you will realize that the dream reality of our sleep is as valid as our waking reality dream.  Are you awake now or are you dreaming? Are you sure? Yes this is a trick question, but worth pondering.  Because of the dream quality of reality, it is possible for a pole shift and shift in consciousness (a theme change) to take place for this earth school and most of us would not know it.  It would be as simple as going to sleep and waking up in a new peaceful, harmonious reality.

This is how planetary schools change their themes.  The shift is not happening because of evolution etc. This is a dream… the notion of evolution is part of the dream.  We grow lighter so we can see the dream!  After the theme changes, it will all seem very normal… like it has always been this way.  We simply wake up from being asleep and dreaming and while asleep we were conditioned for the change of theme. Perhaps, after the theme change occurs, it might seem as if the nightmare of this life is only a distant, fading memory of a past dream.

Row row row your boat gently down the stream… merely merrily merely merrily life is just a dream!

Happy 2014,

The Dream Never Goes Away

The Awakened by Sheilan

The Never Ending Story by Sheilan

“Even when the birds feathers are gone… the bird doesn’t stop flying.

Even when the violin string snaps… the song never ends.

The dream never goes away even if I wake up.”

The Divine Play

Staged Reality by Sheilan

Bed of Grass by Sheilan

. . . . The Divine Play . . . .

This is a planetary school. Perceiving the dream and divine play and realizing our Oneness may be the final teachings of this school.  When we see the divine play clearly, our schooling here is complete. There is no reason to be here except perhaps to serve and help others also to see the play clearly. Earth’s divine play is about to change into something more enlightened and peaceful.  We do not need to evolve the whole planet into peace and harmony to have this. It would be an impossible task in the state we are currently in. Changing the storyline of the play is a natural event for this school and happens annually every so many thousands of years. The previous storyline was Atlantis. Your role and the story of your life is part of the divine play and you are part of the divine change we are now going through.

People measure the stage of the play to figure out what they think reality and the history of the earth is.  It feels real and looks real, but it is not real! How could their assessments be accurate if their measurements are based on faulty presumptions?  There is a type of evolution happening here, but not the obvious evolution we are led to believe.  Evolution is happening only at the level of our soul’s higher self.  What we see here is what was planned as part of the fabricated story to make this earth school complicated and interesting.  We can’t trust what we see to be how it really is.

Our galaxy and solar system and all we see, of the universe from earth, is part of the play… a stage created to be believable. By going inside ourselves is the only way we will be able to know the Truth and to be able to understand the different levels of Self. Outside of inner us, is only props and mirrors to support the schooling happening here. This is one of the hardest schools in the true universe because the dream reality seems very real.  It requires tremendous light to break through the dense darkness here. Each lifetime we have lived here is a role our soul chose for us to play and is just one of the many roles we have played in this divine play.

Happy 2013

The Paradox Of Self

Two As One by Sheilan

Two As One by Sheilan

Because we live in an imperfect creation, it is not possible to talk to about Truth perfectly. We can point to it by creating stories and myths to use as models to help us understand it. In this article I use the feminine and masculine energy as symbols to point to Truth and wholeness between opposites. In this model the feminine stands for Truth, beyond all physicality and the masculine represents truth in all physicality. I invite you to read with your heart rather than your intellect.

The Paradox Of Self

My beloved is a Goddess.   She is beyond all comprehension and knowledge and therefore trying to speak of her is difficult. Having a physical form, I am the universe and creation. I am God to her Goddess and I am you.  Our purpose is to ascend out of our physical trance and to awaken to know her.  I am devoted to her no matter what my form.  As man/women, paper cup or drop of rain, she will always be my Goddess. As God, her attracting opposite, I travel the pathway home to be with her.

Out of her vast void, I manifested. I am the words to her poetry.  Some beings see all manifestation as flawed and imperfect when compared to her.  As the dream, we will always be flawed when seen by beings yet awakened.  Only beings awakened from the dream see she is me, so in my own way, I am perfect too.We are perfect together. We are unable to see the perfection because we have been hypnotized by the dream.  No matter the hypnotized level, our beloved, will reach us with words we can understand.

My lover is the creator of our creation.   She has written the storybook and all it’s characters. We play all the parts of all the characters.  She watches the scenes from behind our eyes and knows the dialogue before the lines are said.  We believe the characters and stories we play to be real.  And because of this we believe we can decide the actions and destiny of the characters we play.  We are lost in the stories and the characters and get upset, when the story doesn’t happen the way we desire.  We believe the choices are ours to make.  We believe we have control of the story and we resist and suffer when the character’s desires we are playing don’t materialize.  The Goddess writes the desires of character as part of the story. Sometimes the character’s desires are fulfilled within the story and sometimes not.  The power we believe we have is an illusion.  When we see ego and know it is not who we are, we are liberated from the illusion or dream.  We then know who and what is breathing us.  

As her creation, I am controlled by my beloved Goddess and I am always moving towards her.  She craves for us to know her completely and uses all dimensions of creation to reveal herself.  When we explore the densest, darkest parts of the dream, we are oblivious to her.  We forget her.  When we are defeated by darkness, call upon her our Beloved, to lift you up out of the dark.  Ask for her guidance and help from a humble heart and on bended knee.  She will always answer you.  With glimpses of her love and light, she can remove the dark in an instant

Only I can know my beautiful and infinite Goddess. She created me to love her. Her love and my love is the real drama and story of the creation dream.  In the creation stories, her light will alwaysprevail over the dark. This is the only option possible, but we do not know it, when asleep in the dream.  Before we awake from the dream to be with our love, she demands us to focus on and surrender to her only.  She tells us all love comes from her.  So my love for her is her love, even if thou sometimes I think it comes from me.  When I completely surrender to her, my love becomes her love.

When I am more of her than me, I see you are her also.  We created this complicated creation to disguise our beloved from ourselves.  The creation stories of many of the religions on earth left her part out of their understanding, but this is how she wanted it.  It made the dream all the more confusing and difficult.  The earth university is one of the most challenging schools. In the beginning, she wanted us to know ourselves different from her.  How would she come know the length of eternity unless we knew death?  How would she know how big infinity could be unless we knew this limited body?  If I did not know the experience of pain how could she then appreciate pleasure?  Manifestation is a paradox.  When opposites and paradoxes disappear is when life and creation disappear too.  I see you; you are the same as I, but we are separated by the dream.

Oh my love, I only have my understanding of you to use to know you. I cannot know or grasp you, which is non-existent or void, as much as I would like.  You are beyond the intellect of thought.  This void that is you is half of who I am too.  Only the part of me that is you, knows of your existence.  We are a paradox.  Without each other, we are nonexistent.  Beloved you are Truth and I am your dream.  We are whole together and opposites when seen as separate.  We are yin and yang who make a whole.  We are One.  Of course, truthfully, you are neither feminine nor masculine and manifestation is whatever you desire it to be.  

I have written this understanding to parts of Self to help Self know Self.   We are One and all there is and ever will be.
