Happy Valentines Day. Love is who we are. Love expressing it’s self purely is the simple delight in being alive and radiating love to all unconditionally. We adore being with babies, animals and nature because we can easily experience their love and our own love is reflected back to us. The more we diminish our darkness, the more our love is released and realized and we shine love for others unconditionally.
May you be the love you want to experience and love the One your with.
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.
. . .
“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.”
“I am ready now. Please tell me what to do and let me serve. I surrender completely and accept whatever is given to me. I am here to be a servant of the light. I know who I am. I trust Consciousness to care for me. Separation is the dream. I have been given all that I need and if I don’t have something, I must not really need it. I do what my soul wants me to do and need no praise for doing it. Only the ego desires acknowledgment and rewards for what is done. I surrender all desires. Please let me be Light. Thank you. I am grateful for all your help. Please protect me from darkness. Thank you. My deepest wish above all else is to return to the Light while in separation. Please… this is all I ask.”
This is the desire and prayer of an awakened heart.
Inner peace is only sought after by the beings driven to do the work, because they are miserable living partially awake and partially asleep in the dream. For these beings, waking up from the dream becomes the only possible cure for what ails them. Realizing and Knowing Truth brings about Awakening. Truth at the highest level is very simple to know and understand intellectually. However, realizing this truth takes us thousands of incarnations in order to realize the full meaning. Of course, it is wonderful that beings think and believe whatever they want to. This is what makes the planet so varied and interesting. Beings who want to awaken and Know Truth and live in peace and harmony must desire this above all else.
Life is a dream. It takes a deep yearning to see Truth through the distractions. The distractions keep the dream hidden, making it difficult to perceive. But, if we are really tired of being tortured and unhappy in the dream, the first step is to get on our hands and knees, (metaphorically) and let go…surrender! Let go of everything we hold on to. Let go of all our attachments. Let go of fears. When letting go at first, it can be very scary because we feel vulnerable, but let go any way. You will not loose yourselves. Ask your angel of protection to be with you. Ask your angel and ethereal guides to help keep you in the light. Do this over and over again… every day if necessary, if you really desire to be awakened.
We will only know Truth and light after letting go of all our attachments. This is the only way it can happen. Part of letting go is being willing to face and complete all of our karmic lessons. When facing challenges pray and ask for help. Meditate and go for walks to help quiet the mind. Be aware of what you are feeling. Feel the emotion fully then let it go. Don’t be pulled into repetitive negative thinking that feeds lower emotions. When breaking repetitive thoughts, practice keeping thoughts in the present moment. Observe your feelings and thoughts. This is how you know where you are within yourself. Do something to shift out of the darkness if you find yourself thinking negatively. I am not saying to watch your thoughts so you can control your outer reality. I say this so you can be aware and enjoy your life no matter what the outside is doing.
Surrender is the path to a life full of joy and love.
On this earth school, karma and karmic lessons are an integral part of the learning. We must accumulate karma purposefully in order to have a storyline in order to learn lessons and to grow and eventually move on from here to another school. So, after accumulating the karmic debt, it is important we pay back the debt in order to fully complete the lesson.
Karma is used as a tool to pay into or subtract out of the storyline. There is nothing, which is given or happens to us from another which is free or without consequences. It is either something that is owed to us or something our soul will be paying back at another time. All debts are required to be paid back before we are balanced and can graduate from this earth school. Karmic debts are collected and paid back in a myriad of ways… not only the direct and obvious ways. The complicated karmic system adds deep levels to the learning and makes for a more interesting time on the planet and in school.
Judging actions of others and ourselves, as good and bad, keeps us unaware of the deeper reality and that we are in an illusion or dream. Nothing is ever as it seems on the surface. How do we know when karma is being newly made or when it is being paid back? When we realize we are in a school we become more serious about our lessons. We surrender and no longer resist doing the work before us. At this stage, we are soul tired and desire to stay focused so we can graduate.
