JUST FOR TODAY … A Lesson in Empathy

empathyOur lives intersect with others all day, everyday. Sometimes we know these other lives well; frequently, though, the points of connection are brief and transient. Who are these people? How might they tell their own stories? What thoughts preoccupy their minds? What joys and troubles are coursing through their feelings?

“Could a greater miracle take place than for us to look through each other’s eyes for an instant?”  ~ Henry David Thoreau

If we could catch a glimpse of others’ stories … If you could stand in someone else’s shoes … hear what they hear … see what they see … feel what they feel … would YOU treat them differently?

All Are One … Live in Peace and Aloha

Aloha Spirit ~ Love Is The Medicine

REIKI babyHealers, therapists, friends, and lovers!

When you sit with a friend in pain,
when their world no longer makes sense;
when confusion rages
and no rest is to be found.

Just for a moment,
will you resist the temptation
to make things better,
to reassure them,
to provide answers,
even to heal them?

Will you offer your stillness, your listening,
your presence, and the warmth
of your immediacy?

Will you hold them in your heart
with the same tenderness
of a mother holding her little one?

Will you embrace them where they are,
without needing them to change or transform
according to your own needs and schedule?

Will you stay close,
holding your own impatience and discomfort near?

Will you look into their eyes
and see yourself?

Will you stay in the inferno of healing with them,
trusting in disintegration,
knowing that you are only witnessing
the falling away of an old dream?

Sometimes in doing nothing
everything is undone,

and love is revealed to be
the only true medicine.

WEEKLY WORDWIDE PEACE MEDITATION

spiritual globeBelow is a Prayer and Meditation for Peace. I invite you to read this holy message and hold the energy of Peace and Love for our Holy Mother Earth. Our Planet can move toward restorative justice- we just need to hold to the Truth! We are One Being and We all want Peace to Reign Supreme in our World.

Hold Sacred Space – Envision Peace…

Hold sacred space several times throughout the day and envision Peace. Peace and healing for all individuals and peace and healing for our Holy Mother Earth. Now feel the Peace and Love well up inside of your body. Listen as it speaks its Truth to you. Feel yourself embrace accept and embody Peace. Rest in your forgiveness of all others. Become the energy of Peace and send it out to all beings and all of the warring nations and to our very own blessed Planet.

Daily affirm that there is enough of everything necessary to sustain all of life. Imagine that there is now equal distribution of all goods, including enough clean foods and nourishments, enough medicines healers’ medical equipment and support teams, enough clean water that is always available, dependable shelter, solar systems and wind energy. Affirm that there are enough of all life giving structures and systems that will support and sustain all human beings, including animals, and the biosphere throughout the world.

Claim that the political parties leaders and governments of the world are working together to create and uphold global harmony and peace. Affirm that everyone and everything that appears to be anything other than peace has transmuted transformed transcended into Harmony Joy Love and Peace.

Envision a world full of compassionate loving people who deeply embrace and accept each other’s race, religious, cultural and political beliefs, their gender, their looks and sexual preferences, the level of their education and their current socio-economic conditions.

Open your heart space and call forth the protection and healing of all women and children living in an active war zone. Open your heart space and call forth the protection and healing of all men who live in an active war zone and those men who are active participants of war.

Envision now the individual and collective healing energy of love light and deep peace and see it penetrate embrace and blanket all warring lands as it heals the deep sense of separation that is felt within the hearts and minds of all.

I call out to the lands and infuse the very grounds of Iraq, Iran, Pakistan, Syria, Lebanon, Somalia, Afghanistan, Israel, Palestine, Gaza, Hamas, Libya, Sudan, Yemen, Saudi Arabia, Nigeria, Congo, the CARS (Central African Republic), Egypt, North and South Korea, South American and Mexico (drug wars), Ukraine and Russia, with DEEP PEACE. I include in this call for Peace, any of the forgotten lands or nations here not mentioned.

Let us now meditate on healing the very ground we walk on the air that we breathe the water we drink the foods we eat and heal the hearts and minds of us all as we move along the path toward realizing Peace in our lifetime.

Thích Nhất Hạnh said that “peace is every step”. So allow Peace to literally breathe you in and out each day. Remember that the Peace we demonstrate each day is in the reflection of every step we take.

Peace takes Practice Peace takes Effort Peace is Now.

“If we have no peace, it is because we have forgotten that we belong to each other.” – Mother Theresa (1910-1997)

Always Include Yourself In The Dialogue of Unconditional Love and Unity Consciousness!

ONE

Loving and honouring others while berating and judging yourself is still practicing separation consciousness.  Unconditional love and unity consciousness means seeing the beauty and divinity of ALL, and that MUST include yourself.  Simply put, to deny yourself is to deny an aspect of God, as you are all part of the greater whole of the divine.

 

The Lost Art of Writing Letters

Love-Notes-Are-Always-In-Style

What is it about the written word that makes a letter so special? For one thing, nobody writes anymore; it truly is a lost art. In this day and age of emailing and texting, people don’t spend the time and effort necessary to generate a handwritten note. It’s a rare occurrence to find one in the mailbox.

But taking the time to pen a handwritten letter to someone communicates so much more than just the words on the page. It shows that we value them and, because of this, we took time out of our busy, over-scheduled lives to put pen to page and tell them truly how we feel (not what Hallmark says we should feel — anyone else think greeting cards never say the right thing?).

Who in our own lives could use a personal note from us? Let’s think about whom we could connect to in this way and then make the time to write to them this week.

528 hz + DNA?

“Richard J. Saykally from UC Berkeley has explained that the structure of the water molecule gives it special properties and is essential for DNA’s function.”

(Water needs to be in a certain shape for it to function well inside DNA.)

“Hydrated DNA hold far greater energy potentials than dehydrated strands.”

(DNA can hold more energy potentials when it is NOT dehydrated.)

“Richard J. Saykally, and other genetics from the University of California, Berkeley have proven that a slight reduction of energized water, bathing genetic matrices, causes DNA to fail energetically.”

(When DNA is not hydrated, the body fails energetically.)

“Dr. Lee Lorenzen, discovered that six-sided, crystal-shaped, hexagonal clustered water molecules, form the supportive matrix of healthy DNA.”

(When DNA IS hydrated, it forms 6 sided shapes that construct new healthy existences for DNA energy potential.)

” Biochemist Steve Chemiski, says that these 6-sided clear clusters vibrate at a specific resonant frequency — 528 cycles per second.”

The Fibonacci Sequence is a naturally occurring series of numbers. They are even seen in stocks. The series forms through addition, where 1, 1, 2, 3, 5, 8,13, etc. are all additions of the most recent number to the last. These numbers create ratios, and geometry that is consistently exemplified (leaves, flower petals, branches, pine cones, shells, horns, starfish, hands, limbs, eyes, ears.)

The Essene Holy Communion For WEDNESDAY

Angel of Sun / Angel of Love
“Evening and morning, and at noonday I will pray; and He shall hear my voice” ~ Psalms 55:15
SEASONAL FOCUS:   Flowers announce the promise of fruition.
The Angel of the Sun – Wednesday Morning.
The purpose of this Communion was to become receptive to the solar energies and establish a perfect unity between the self and the sun and distribute its power throughout the body.
THE PHYSICAL COMMUNION:   This day’s focus is on the Sun. Allow its power and light to enter your body. Rise early and go to a place where you can observe the Sun rise. Begin your morning meditation with the first rays of light. With arms outstretched and palms facing the light, let the Sun nourish your body and soul.
Note:  Exposure to Sunlight is an important source of Vitamin D. Ultraviolet (UV) rays from Sunlight trigger Vitamin D synthesis in the skin. 10 minutes of exposure to the Sun three times a week is enough to maintain healthy Vitamin D levels in the body. (Most people have Vitamin D deficiencies.)
THE DEEPENING:   Let thy love be as the Angel of Sun which shines upon ALL the creatures of the earth, and does not favor even one blade of grass for another.
MORNING COMMUNION:   Angel of SUN I invoke thee. Thou art the fountain of light that warms our days and lights our path. It is by your glory that man is destined to live within the Holy Law, and as each morning comes, I shall embrace thee.
MEDITATION:   This day brings to the world the divine blessings of the glorious Sun and its radiant gifts of warmth and of light. How mindlessly we go about our days shielded from your nourishment and unable the receive your blessed gifts. Without fail, I shall find time this day to take the gift of your light into my soul, so that my own light may shine unto others with the same power and glory that you have given unto me.
NOON CONTEMPLATION OF PEACE:  Peace with HUMANITY, Social Peace.  Let thy love be as the Sun which shines on ALL creatures of the earth, and does not favor even one blade of grass for another.
The Angel of Love – Wednesday Evening.
Love was considered by the Essenes to be the highest creative feeling and they held that a cosmic ocean of love exists everywhere uniting all forms of life and, that life itself is an expression of love.
EVENING COMMUNION:   Angel of LOVE I invoke thee; for love is the first blessing of the Heavenly Father. Yea, it was said in the days of old, thou shalt love thy brother as thyself; and to every one who loveth another is born of the Heavenly Order, and shall drink from the well of eternity; and as each evening comes, I shall embrace thee.
THE BLESSING:   The warmth of this day has filled me. How natural it is to feel this blessing and to radiate it back into the world. I look into the eyes of another and see only shared divinity. The boundaries have disappeared. Thou are no longer a stranger to my heart.
————————————————————
“They (Essenes) greeted the Sun each morning with great reverence”~ Josephus, Jewish historian, 1st century CE
Truly, all must be born again of Sun and of truth, for your body basks in the sunlight of the Earthly Mother, and your spirit basks in the sunlight of truth of the Heavenly Father. ~ Gospel of Peace of Jesus Christ
I will praise Thy works with songs of Thanksgiving continually, from period to period, in the circuits of the day, and in its fixed order; with the coming of light from its source and at the turn of evening and the outgoing of light, at the outgoing of darkness and the coming in of day, continually, in all the generations of time. ~The Thanksgiving Psalms: The Dead Sea Scrolls
A new commandment I give unto you, that ye love one another and all creatures of God. Love is the fulfillment of the Law. Love IS God and God IS love. Whoso loveth not, knoweth not God.  ~ Jesus, Gospel of the Holy Twelve

Peace be with you.

El Morya ~ The Final Chapter

Image

This letter spontaneously appeared as an unsigned typewritten letter amongst David Crawford’s personal papers just at the moment of his departure from New Mexico for California.

We believe it is a spiritual message from Ascended Master El Morya intended as our compass in these, the latter days of our Journey on The Path together.  Peace be with you all.

 

You have made a magnificent journey.

 

As you’ve listened to these words … as you’ve looked at ancient mysteries, the insights of the metaphysical realm and the laws of Quantum Physics … looked at your own personal experiences, you come now to the Final Chapter.

 

It is the final chapter of this book, but also the final chapter of Life and its multitude of experiences. What lies beyond this moment in Time? Look into this moment, where you exist now, where you are experiencing life … it’s joy, its sorrows, its disappointments, its frustrations, its passions, its tears and its laughter … contemplating all that is beyond here, all that is here and all that has been … Look into the moment of NOW.

 

You are listening to these words. Perhaps they say things you already know, truths you have already gained … and they have not told you anything you didn’t know somewhere inside yourself.

 

Now, move beyond these words.

 

You can see the greater truth unfold for the future … for a battle rages during this time in Life. It is an ancient battle where fear and greed fight love and hope. There is only one outcome and it is beyond this moment of Now. No matter what course mankind takes, we will eventually move out of this realm.

 

Following the path of fear and greed, the apocalypse of natural disasters, war and famine looms large. Yet, this apocalypse will force mankind to find a higher way. Following the path of Love, the same inevitable end comes … but through a different way: through a loving, gentle way … Man passes into the millennium, which prepares those for eternity.

 

Through your personal experiences of love, you learn of your eternal home. Moving through life, you learn the deep understanding that you are loved by your Father; that you are loved eternally. Within that understanding is a reward of love, hope, comfort and security.

 

Within the consciousness of fear and greed, you feel unworthy, undeserving … that you have not done enough. You cannot accept yourself. You struggle to gain through the illusion of what is waiting for you in eternity. And in that struggle, love and hope elude you. From fear and greed, you offer a kind of superficial love: Duty and Labor.

 

Even with the knowledge and ability to cause mountains to be moved, and having infinite knowledge of all things … you still do not have what you seek. You miss it. You do not realize that the necessary offering is the true offering of the heart shining through your motive, not your intent and deeds.

 

When the offering is from the heart, perception and judgment are not clouded and truth gives manifestation to your motive. You then learn that to love others is to understand and accept their ability to receive love, to accept their sense of perception and interpretation of love as precious, unique and a part of their eternal identity. You offer your love, expanding it to encompass the perception that each unique individual has.

 

It does not mean that you agree or disagree, or you respond or don’t respond with them.

 

Unfolding from that sense of loving and being loved, in that atmosphere of hope and comfort will be a 1,000-year reign. The spirit of mankind emerges from life to a much higher, greater sense of man’s own being … that which man will be in eternity.

 

You have come to the final chapter. You are loved with the total love of your Creator. If you are not conscious of that love, take comfort: by all that is True, you are loved.

 

Your expression of love may be fraught with every imaginable curse of psychology or personal debauchery, fear, hatred or anger. Your fear and your anger exist because you don’t feel that love surrounds you. You hate because you think that what you really want is not given.

 

But, love is always with you. You are loved in a unique way. Take comfort from these words.

 

You that do not know the deep comfort of the truth of love itself, of its creation … of this reality in life. You that only know the bitterness of the physical, emotional and spiritual pain that you feel in this reality.

 

Know the hope that this pain comes to an end. It comes to and end and is completed. The eternal truth, the truth that gave this creation reality, you will appreciate more than others whose path is not as difficult as yours. Your reward will be great in the love and richness you will experience. A love designed uniquely for you, awaiting you at a moment in the future.

 

Allow yourself to unfold and allow it to unfold for you.

 

Allow the truth of your eternal identity to unfold within your consciousness. You are an eternal being, an eternal entity, embodied in flesh … but you are not limited by life and the constrictions of that body. You are eternal, and you shall find love, joy and happiness that is unique to you.

 

You will feel love as an infant within the womb. You will feel love as a child that goes through the pain of birth and feels life for the first time. You will feel love from nurturing arms. You will feel love of family, friends and loved ones caring for you. You will feel the liberty to express love, and the liberty to receive it.

 

How will this moment of emergence come for you?

 

Will it be ­­­­through understanding the quantum physics that bind all the forces together … or, through seeing the eternal reality itself as the greatest example?

 

Will it be through understanding that you express the Divine Formula in your deepest desire to love and be loved?

 

Will it be through your realization that you desire to be loved by others as you truly are, rather than through trying to be what you think others want you to be?

 

Will it be from your acceptance of the truth preparing the pathway of your consciousness to enter into eternity into the great spectrum of reality beyond this life?

 

Will it be from your acceptance that this earthly life is an illusion and the dream?

 

No matter what your path is, the reality of love and its eternal sense will bring us to a place where we can greet one another with love that is unconditional and non-judgmental, revealing the profound beauty in each aspect and action of every individual.

 

We will experience that same love for ourselves and know that it is the same love God has for each, as you, His precious child. This is the gift you wear as the mantle as you ascend into the Presence.

 

At this final chapter in the school of our lives on this planet look deeply into what all of this means to you here in the present and to the physical consciousness of mankind.

 

Two roads are parting, both coming to the same end. One is Fear and Greed, reaping as much as it can gather for itself with no regard for anything else. You can see how we have traveled on this very road in what we have experienced in our own lives … how it has brought us here. It has brought us here as much as the Love and Hope we have experienced. We’re just sharing a small dream about what it is like to be in the body of an animal … to feel the pain, the heartache and the pleasure … to have victory and defeat … to have hope, passion, desire and anguish. We are dreaming of life at the level of Light where it slows to a place called Earth … GAIA …

 

And when you awaken you will remember you were here walking down that pathway finding in your dream our true character.

 

The master of this insight, the worker, or the Enlightened One has always laid down his life for God to help him guide the lives of others into Truth, Light and Love, maintaining God’s covenant with Man. The masters have served mankind continuously. Their numbers are great.

 

It may be that you stand within that group yourself, even unaware. For those of you who do stand within this midst … within these Temples … within your private lives … standing alone within the Light of Truth and Love in whatever you do in your service to Him is what you do to others.

 

You may be called from this life experience at any moment, so that the Divine Formula can unfold. The prophecies have proclaimed it and the Time approaches when a new and unique pattern is formed for this human race. The subatomic universe is the same as the cosmic galaxies of the stars. It is the same fractal pattern. The future of mankind unfolds naturally, as it unfolds in everyone’s life … in YOUR life. Mankind’s battle is the same battle as yours: the battle of Love and Hope versus Fear and Greed.

 

To experience the struggle is the Prize. It is simply the way that it is. It is based in the Hope of Mankind to love and be loved. It is your hope to love and be loved. This is man’s deepest desire and your deepest desire. Its manifestation is within the spectrum of perception and is unique to each individual unique to you.

 

The pattern you manifest is just as true and real to all as it is to you. What can you do to change the course of events for yourself? What can you do to change the course of events for Mankind?

 

Simply open your heart to love and be loved … to God’s unconditional non-judgmental love.

 

If it is a smile … if it is a kind word for another … if it is that unselfish charitable act, which you simply do spontaneously … It is the greatest victory you can give to your brothers and sisters. It is the greatest triumph throughout Eternity.

 

For in your dream of life, you were loving …

In your dream of life, you learned that you were … you just were.

In your dream of life, you discovered the Truth and lived the final chapter.

In your dream of life, you awakened and found the way Home.

 

Rumi ~ The Inner Garment of Love

Image

That spirit which does not wear
the inner garment of love
should never have been.
Its being is just shame.

Be drunken with Love,
For Love is all that exists.
Where is intimacy found,
If not in the give and take of Love?

If they ask what Love is,
Say, ‘the sacrifice of will.
If you have not left will behind,
You will have no will at all.’

The lover is a king of kings
With both worlds beneath him;
And a king does not regard
What lies at his feet.

Only Love and the lover
Can resurrect beyond time.
Give your heart to this –
The rest is second hand.

How long will you embrace
A lifeless beloved?
Embrace that entity
To which nothing can cling.

What sprouts up every spring
Will wither by autumn,
But the rose-garden of Love
Needs no special season.

Both the rose and the thorn
Appear together in spring,
And the wine of the grape
Is not without its headaches.

Do not be an impatient
Bystander on this path –
By God there is no death
Worse than expectancy.

Set your heart on hard cash
If you are not counterfeit,
And listen to my advice
If you are not a slave:

Don’t falter on the horse
Of the body – go lighter on foot.
God gives wings to those
Who are not content to ride an ass.

Let go of your worries
And be completely clear hearted,
Like the face of a mirror
That contains no images.

When it is empty of forms,
All forms are contained in it.
No face would be ashamed
To be so clear.

If you want a clear mirror,
Behold yourself,
And see the shameless truth
Which the mirror reflects.

If metal can be polished
To a mirror-like finish –
What polishing does the mirror
Of the heart require?

Between the mirror and the heart
Is this single difference:
The heart conceals secrets
While the mirror does not.

(Rumi. “The Ruins of the Heart”. Edmund Helminski. pp. 30-32)

 

From This Day Forward, Be More Loving … but how?

Our ability to experience love has nothing to do with getting love from someone else. We don’t need to be good enough or gorgeous enough in order to make love a dominant part of our daily experience. We are the only person who is responsible for how much love we experience in our lives.

Image

So … take some time out today … each day … and get to know yourself a little better.  You might think you know everything about yourself, but chances are there are a lot of things about yourself that you have ignored or overlooked because they weren’t “important”.  Listen, and ask yourself how you are really feeling.  Get out some nice paper and a nice pen and share these real feelings, as if you were writing to a best friend.  Take this time to listen to yourself, and get used to the feeling.  Ask yourself:  what things are important to you that you are neglecting right now?

Image

Take action to show love to yourself by honoring something that is important to you, even if someone else might not approve or think you deserve what it is that’s important to you.

As you go through the day, stop to remind yourself that you deserve respect and admiration, just for no other reason than that you deserve love. Let your heart open, and enjoy the feeling. This feeling can become a constant companion, and it becomes something we can share with the world around us.
