“This is what I know for sure, you don’t get what you wish for, you don’t even get what you hope for. You get what you believe.” –Oprah
There is nothing more powerful than love.
Nothing more powerful than truth.
Nothing more powerful than God.
What else on the planet can penetrate the thickest walls?
Brighten the darkest corners?
Fill up empty hearts?
Envelop a room, completely unseen, yet felt with an overwhelming warmth?
Make the pain of years melt away?
Bring us to spill tears of joy?
Instantly remove fear?
Gain trust in an instant?
Unify us all?
The problem of being stuck in self was the root of all my problems.
When I all I think about is how I am going to manage in this world, how I am going to have money, security, a career, friends, lovers, having fun, safety and everything else I can obsess about, the result is misery.
For me everything goes back to the relationship I have with my creator. If I trust this thing, if I believe it is always by my side, guiding and protecting me, then I have much less fear about life and my place in it.
I have surrendered to the fact that I am here to do the will of my creator first and not my own.
That doesn’t mean I don’t get to have an amazing life. In fact the more I put others first and serve my creator and humanity, the more my life steadily improves.
It sometimes feels like getting out of self is against my natural inclination. However it is only my ego that fights it, not the ultimate nature of my being.
I just continually do all I can to keep the gift of my awakening alive and take actions to not slip backwards into unconsciousness.
It works, it really does.
Vibrate high with the sound of love
Love, the sound of all creation
End separation and judgement
What you judge you become
Blame will not serve you
Rise above the darkness
Have words of truth fall from your lips
Don’t theorize a spiritual life
Open your heart to unite with bliss
Give without conditions
Allow your soul to guide you
Let down your walls
They are needed no more
Be the magnificent creator that you are
Remember what you have forgotten
Reach towards the light
Towards your creator
It will never fail you
This is a brilliant parable from Neale Walsch’s Conversations With God in book 1.
This book has changed my life.
“There once was a soul who knew itself to be the light. This was a new soul, and so, anxious for experience. “I am the light,” it said. “I am the light.” Yet all the knowing of it and all the saying of it could not substitute for the experience of it. And in the realm from which this soul emerged, there was nothing but the light. Every soul was grand, every soul was magnificent, and every soul shone with the brilliance of My awesome light. And so the little soul in question was as a candle in the sun. In the midst of the grandest light—of which it was a part—it could not see itself, nor experience itself as Who and What it Really Is.
Now it came to pass that this soul yearned and yearned to know itself. And so great was its yearning that I one day said, “Do you know, Little One, what you must do to satisfy this yearning of yours?”
“Oh, what, God? What? I’ll do anything!” The little soul said.
“You must separate yourself from the rest of us,” I answered, “and then you must call upon yourself the darkness.
“What is the darkness, o Holy One?” the little soul asked.
“That which you are not,” I replied, and the soul understood.
And so this the soul did, removing itself from the All, yea, going even unto another realm. And in this realm the soul had the power to call into its experience all sorts of darkness. And this it did.
Yet in the midst of all the darkness did it cry out, “Father, Father, why hast Thou forsaken me?” Even as have you in your blackest times. Yet I have never forsaken you, but stand by you always, ready to remind you of Who You Really Are; ready, always ready, to call you home.
Therefore, be a light unto the darkness, and curse it not.
And forget not Who You Are in the moment of your encirclement by that which you are not. But do you praise to the creation, even as you seek to change it.
And know that what you do in the time of your greatest trial can be your greatest triumph. For the experience you create is a statement of Who You Are-and Who You Want to Be.”
