Your Choice is Your Freedom

2013-12-25 13.21.08

We have probably heard that when we blame someone or something, we give that someone our power or that something power over us. Each of us are on Our Path, we grow, we learn, we awaken. We see our Life Experience and we have thoughts, feelings and emotions about where we are and what we are. We can question how we got here and why we are here. In all of our dealings on our Path, we have choices. We choose what we want to believe created the world we live in, we choose whom we want to believe is The Creator, The Universe, God, you can use what name you are familiar with as there are many names used.

One thing that keeps Us apart is division. Sounds simple, yes? On one level, when we see ourselves as separate from our Source, we are creating a division. We then see a division between all the things that the Source has made. So if we now blame The Source for our Life Experience, we are relinquishing our power AND responsibility for where we are.

Going back to our ability to choose, well let’s go all the way back to our “beginning.” When we prescribe to the idea that we chose to be here, we chose our parents, we chose this Life Experience; it was so we could grow, then awaken to our knowledge of Self and then influence our world. WE ARE connected to The Source,  as we are the source, the universe. If we stop talking about The Source in third person and start living all the ancient texts and scriptures as say an autobiography, we regain our power and relinquish the separateness of all that is. The Universe is Love, Peace, Happiness and One. It is The Source of everything.

When we choose to BE Love, Peace and Happiness by thinking, saying and then being – “I Am Love,” we are then being The Universe. This choice gives us the freedom to know that we create our world, we have the power to influence what it will be. This is choosing to take responsibility for our Life Experience, no more blaming, now just living in our power to create our world.

What Is Your Gift and Passion?

Many of us do lots of things well. What is your passion in Life? Do we have to search for it and where do we look? There are some things that we do that are very easy for us, sometimes, so much so that we don’t even notice that we are doing them. A passion for us can be something that we do that makes us and others smile, be happy or have that warm, feeling.

There are times in your search for your passion that you might have to look to a friend who then shows you the way back into yourself for the answer. You have a Trinity of Source: me, myself and I. Ofttimes we have an external Trinity of spirits known as friends that can also assist to guide us on our Path.

I am very fortunate to have my Trinity of angels to help me on my Path! They are each a Light brightening my Path as well as all they come in contact with.  Fonda FrederickStaci Tye and Stephanie Richardson have asked me questions of myself which lead me deeper inside my Being. They would tell me there were ways I was affecting people through various interactions that I wasn’t always either aware of or paying attention to when I was doing them. They each have so much Love and Inspiration within them and are always bringing that out of people they are around.

We talk about the ways we each affect others and how we can do these things easily, effortlessly. These things are your Gifts, they are to be given away, and when used properly, they bless both the recipient and the giver.Stephanie and I call them our little superpowers and each other X-Men 🙂

Some of our best teachers show us where to look but not what to see. Look within your Self and find those things you do that make you happy, your Gifts, your Passion; then as you find your Light, let it shine and brighten your world. This will in turn begin to brighten The World.

My Love and Peace to You

YOU ARE Here…

2014-12-30 21.57.21

On Your Path, there are many questions that arise. Let’s  briefly address two of them: “Who are you?” and “Where are you?” To make this a little more personal, let’s ask Who am I? and “Where am I?” We are each living our individual experiences and as such, we will ofttimes see the same thing from different perspectives; and that is OK. When we can acknowledge AND accept that others will have a different point of view, we allow ourselves to encompass a broader view which then allows us to learn more.

Many times when we are answering questions, we refer to information and/or knowledge that we have accumulated on our Path. Again, there are numerous sources of information and it can be learned differently, understood differently and thus applied differently. Again, this is OK. When we begin our process of educating ourselves about ourselves, one of the optimal places to first look is at our SELF. By using yourself as the primary subject, we can reduce the need for comparing our Path, though it will not eliminate the comparisons; but we need to start somewhere. Also, understand that it is OK to question what you know.So as we look at our sources of our knowledge and how we apply our knowledge, we start the process of learning by sometimes un-learning what we thought we knew.

Let’s look at an example of something that has varied views. When I say “GOD”, what comes to your mind? When I say Universe or Source, do you have the same image or understanding? Which of the terms do you feel you are a part of, and which do you think you are separate from?

2013-12-10 11.59.03-3

If you scoop a bucket of water from the ocean as you are standing on the beach, what is the water in the bucket and is it different from the ocean because it is in the bucket? Take this same analogy to YOU and your view of your SELF.Referring back to what makes you feel and/or think you are a part of, rather than being separate from; we can begin to see how it is easier to build a relationship with what we are, something we are familiar with or see the similarities with. As we realize that WE are not as separate from each other; and in turn from whom created US, we then begin to reduce the reasons for superficial differences. When we start applying this to our daily lives, we begin to see that all the so-called social, economical, political and racial differences really are not important.

How do we apply this “new found” knowledge of our SELF to our two questions? If we see ourselves as a smaller part of The Universe, individual yet connected by a common Source, we can all create a new world for ourselves and a new World collectively. We can say, “I AM the creator of my world, which is where I AM Here and Now.”

The Dark Side Of Spirituality – Expanded Consciousness

by Luke Miller

Truth Theory I think it’s safe to say that spirituality is indeed a good thing. The problem is that some people can enter the spiritual world with a pre conceived misconception that it is going to be an all-round positive experience. Spirituality is not one thing and can be expressed in multiple …

What Are You BEing?

 

On your journey we call Your Life Experience, what is the difference between what you DO and what you ARE? Many of us like to acquire titles through education, work, political or religious affiliations just to site a few examples. We often spend many years attaining and then maintaining these titles. Some of us go so far as to insist on being addressed by our title, whether it is Dr. or Pastor or Senator or Judge, and on and on. Most of these titles are for the things that we do to earn a living, which is typically a necessary part of our lives. However, have we looked at our motives or intentions for striving for these titles?

2015-05-18 18.22.45

What are BEing on a daily basis?

When you start your day, you decide what kind of person you are going to be, which in turn determines what kind of day you will bring into your Life Experience. As we begin our day with a grateful spirit to be able to even make a decision on our attitude, then expand to other items we can be thankful for, a place to have slept, a warm shower, food to eat; we also expand our attitude of gratitude. Now as we decide to BE Happy and look for more beauty, love and peace in all that we encounter, we will undoubtedly see more of what we look for.

Now as you are BEing Happy while you are DOing what you must do to earn a living, you can possibly find a way to merge what you do with what you ARE. Looking back at our intention for getting a certain title attached to our existence can add some clarity to whether there is joy in what you do. Even if we don’t care for what we do as living, we can take some consolation in knowing that when we stop DOing this activity, we do not stop BEing. Some are fortunate enough to be able to do what they love as a means of earning a living, this is a being what you are doing; and oh, what a pleasant feeling this is!

As we drop our proclaimed titles which tend to be a form of division and begin to see that we are all One, all going on our Path with different ideas and thoughts, yet very similar destinations; we can change our world by being Peace, Love and Happiness. This will in turn change The World.

Is there an “Only Way”?

Have you ever paid attention to statements that begin with “The only …”?

We have at some time in our Life Experience been told that “the only” way to do something or get somewhere is “this way”. Look at some of the sayings, quotes or phrases that we use or see on various media. Many of them sound good on the surface. Some of the statements might not state the “only way” but are just as limiting. Here’s a few examples:

 

In asserting that there is an only way to do, be or have, we are necessarily setting up a duality effect, one which when examined, shows us that something can be true and false at the same time. In stating that nothing worth have comes easy, is to say that all the possible things, events or states of mind have to be acquired through hard work or effort. Not really.  Peace, Love and Happiness can be attained very easily when we understand from whence they originate, from within us rather from external people, places or things. Consider if you will, how many  new doors you opened by turning the handle or pushing or pulling, just like you did on the hundreds of prior doors. Many of these statements which state the only way are good to make a point, and can be very effective, though we would do well to limit their over-reaching of all possible alternatives.

In each of our Life Experiences, we will venture on separate, varying paths. They won’t all be the same and that is fine, even welcome. I often say, “I can’t make all the wrong turns, so I might as well learn from others!” When we look to others for their unique perspective from their Path, whether it be a particular route to work, a way of educating themselves, their religious beliefs or their spiritual practice; we allow ourselves to see the many possible paths available to get to the same destination.

My goal each day is to make people smile. There are so many persons, 7+ billion, each on a journey right now. As I continue to learn, grow and awaken, it becomes more evident that there is no “only way” for a person to attain a higher state of consciousness in their spiritual or religious lives. This is each of our own unique Life Experience. I am a teacher, not a preacher, and as such see that there are many paths to enlightenment. Let us consider that the person that is saying that their way is “the only” way could be more open-minded and less divisive by understanding there is “another way” rather than “the only way.”

My Love, Peace and Happiness to each of you as we continue to grow and awaken on Our Path
