THE CLEARING

a fog

Have you ever felt as if you were living in a fog, where the long awaited clearing seems to never come? Well you are not alone! The weather can be sunny with short periods of overcast, but not in your world. The birds are singing the flowers are blooming, but not in your world.

It’s hard to imagine that soon this feeling of despair will lift and reveal the beauty of life even if it’s raining. We can be so over come with sadness, and anxiety that all we can think about is how to get past the next few minutes. We dwell on why me and how is it that everyone else around me seems to have it all?

Your heart is so heavy it cannot send the right signals to the brain to provide the help needed to snap you out of the suffering that you are putting yourself through. We have all become so distant from our true nature, the essence of who we are that we begin to forget how miraculous our bodies are that it allows us not to be in control because then we would forget the one key ingredient for survival, “Just Breathe”

The act of breathing when concentrated on relieves our aching souls for that brief moment that will have allowed for peace to enter even for just a few seconds. Dwelling on the negative gets so much more of a rap than it deserves. People in our lives constantly remind us of our limitations when the positive is so much more important.

Remember none of us were born with the answers and it’s unfair to think that just because our elders are older that have an inside track to the answers needed for us to solve our deepest concerns. Each one of us is unique and gifted in a way that no one else is, and it’s not realistic to think that anyone has the information you need when they are on a path of their own.

If a past event is causing you to constantly be in a state of grief because you do not know how to function without the thought form it has created in your memory bank, it’s time to realize all the past is a recollection in the present thought forms. You have power to change the thought form by letting it go where it belongs, in the past,a place where you were to learn from the experience and move on to the present, for that is where life is and that’s why it’s called “The Present”.

It’s the opportunity to get it right, to free you from the bondage of the past and all those who live there reminding you constantly of the mis-takes you’ve made, who do not possess the gift of forgiveness and unconditional love!!

Why live there, a place the sun never shines? and only in forgiving yourself and when you can fall in love with yourself will you be free to find those who think your are pretty awesome. We are all beautiful and unique onto ourselves, and those who do not embrace you because you think or behave differently, and that you are not worthy of the air you breathe have such lessons to learn that they will have nothing to offer you except repeat patterns and stories that are boring and ultimately no longer relevant.

But you are relevant!! You have a potential to be brilliant and recognizable to yourself, and to those who need your brilliance, that gift which comes in the “present”a time and place we have the privilege to be in.

So get up shake yourself off of all that which does not serve you, smell the coffee, and start the day in gratitude and appreciation for the opportunity to get it right.

THE ROOT OF ALL EVIL

gossip

I use to think when people sat around and talked about other people it was because of a lack of anything else to do. So why is it in our fast paced and very little spare time modern world that we still find ourselves intrenched in the art of gossip?

Even though we are more intelligent than ever and have every axcess to entertainment possible, we still find other peoples lives so much more interesting. Most of the info however is never acurate and lends itself a certain twist that the person spreading the news gives it. This causes the truth of the situation to become more and more distorted as it hits the air waves and creates nothing more then static and hot air.

Bad news travels fast and is so much more entertaining than anything positive. How is it that the majority of us take pleasure in other peoples pain ad suffering? The attention given to the negative event causes it to grow and manifest itself around a collective life force that thrives on the ego’s need for a quick fix, such as a news flash that is based on false truth of the situation.

The saying “from my lips to your ears” simply means the information gets lost in the translation and the story becomes a work in progress down the chain of interpreters giving their emphasis on the matter.

Does anyone stop to consider the enormous affect this has on the people who are the subject of the day, and how the way in which they have become the target to such deviousness will cause them unnecessary harm?

The opportunity to engage in idol gossip is very tempting at first, it’s a social thing and believe it or not a family thing as well. However the one thing I have learned about the world of gossip is that sooner or later it’s your turn. This is a lesson that for most will snap the sense back into them. This ancient art form is cruel and causes nothing but unhappiness to the person, or should I say flavor of the day that is being targeted. The mean and cruel spirit of the mob foaming at the mouth for fresh meat to talk about cares nothing about the truth of the matter, only the temporary pleasure it gives them.

I believe this is at the “Heart” of the state of the world today. People behaving in such ways they think they are entitled to because this is the way our ancestors entertained themselves.

There is always strength in numbers, but what if less and less of us joined in on the waste of precious time that idol gossip lends itself to, and started to put those energies into something far more productive.

Many people are at a loss for what to do besides watch tv or read a fictional novel.
The thought of no telephone, (which I truly believe created the true sense of meaningless gossip) or even the internet which has for most become a true sense of social engagement, and the withdrawals from this so called harmless drug could prove fatal for many.

Once I realized how often I found myself in the center of gossip, the shock and amazement caused me to make a choice. To buy into their delusion of who I’am or to cut off ties with some people in my life I loved so very much.

I chose to write about such things, to instill in others who for some reason are targeted and misrepresented by the forked tongue of the evil we are all capable of. The choice to walk away from what we know best and honor the truth of who we are can open doors never thought possible. This will allow you to be the best you can be with the freedom of knowing the truth is inside of you where no one can take it or make it anything other than yours.

Be brave recognize the falseness in others, simply walk away from the vibrational field that contains the ability for people to be unkind. Your vibration will be lifted taking you with it.

Be mindful of who you let in your field of safety, then the struggle to be who you truly are will be over and can enjoy the peace that comes with your own company.

The act of embracing who you are needs no permission from anyone but you! Get to know yourself so when you are judged or treated unfairly the purpose of the attack will not succeed and they will soon loose interest and move on to a weaker spirited target.

Our spirit is our friend and because of it we are never alone. So enjoy the perks of being human and before you know it the true spirit that lives inside you will enter a world where the gate closes for those who choose to be a lesser version of themselves.

You are beautiful only the Divine can tell you otherwise!

Lots of Love and Laughter
