My Message of the Month
a time of togetherness
Recently I visited a friend of mine and as we sat on the deck overlooking the many beautiful flowers and plants in the garden, I had to sit back and think. I realized that this magnificent array of color and texture, a visage of beauty, was created by a variety of artists. Someone had to arrange and plant the seeds, rain hydrated and gave them strength, while the sun nourished them and help them to grow. Bees buzzed, as birds sang, while butterflies danced performing an entire fantasy of a technicolor spectacular.
Better than the MGM production of the Wizard of OZ!.
All of the above characters came together through love and created a moment that was absolutely wonderful.
We came into the physical experience knowing that we would be co-creating with other living entities.
Understanding this, I have to question why I had chosen a life surrounded by bigotry, hatred, fear and separatism. Is this the world I chose or is this a test of whom I am?
I do know that when all of this negativity is around me, I react in a very ugly way. I feel empty, alone, scared and start to doubt my worth.
We came from the non physical which is a place of love and strength, so fear is not a natural state of mind. Feeling isolation is not natural since we are surrounded and given the gift of life.
It encompasses us daily in all that we do, so we should be embracing all of life that is around us.
The Universe's greatest gift is the life line of others allowing us to interact, teach and grow in consciousness. Staying within your own individual reality brings new perspective to others who are willing to hear, taste and feel the special information you are willing to share. There will never be a time that you
stop learning if you are willing to receive and there will never be a time that you are not teaching if you are willing yourself to just be. Nothing in the physical is built, manifested or discovered without input resonating from the vibration of others. You don't get an idea without having a thought and you don't get a thought without experiencing a vibration. Every thing that lives around us vibrates it's energy that resonates to our own reality.
That is why it is not natural to survive in a place and have joy if you are not open to others having their experience. This applies to all that live and breath: wildlife, foliage and other human beings. We each have a body that is our temple and want to take care of it, as well as wildlife and plants do. Our air, water and land should be just as important as brushing our teeth and combing our hair. Each takes care of our bodies which houses that special gift that is each other.
It is important that each of us stay in our reality, learn to respect and appreciate all living creatures that are constantly teaching and allowing us options that contribute to our growth.
Some people prefer to share anger, hostility, greed, ego, and separatism and they are allowed to do so. Everyone has been given free will and choice. As Americans, we believe in free speech and encourage others to express their feelings. There are those that don't respect and would trash and abuse the environment. From their perspective, they feel entitled to do so.
Eventually this thinking will keep most of us angry, fearful and alone. We will continue to breath bad air, drink poisoned water and will destroy our wildlife. Holding on to this vibration keeps us in a state of confusion and pain, stopping us from moving forward, taking away our drive from learning and from what makes us happy. In the physical, we are an extension of ourselves from the non physical and come from a vibration of love. Experiencing things dark and negative, allows us the opportunity to learn what we do and do not desire to have in our reality. It teaches us, if we choose, to embrace what works and what does not work, which can determine if you desire to stay in clarity and joy or stay lost and miserable.
Choosing to be happy or to be sad, depends on how you choose to digest what comes your way.
So you see every living being teaches us and assists us in moving forward in our physical adventure.
Growing up, I had many questions about organized Religion but have always embraced my Spirituality.
I have been fortunate to have the ability to see and feel living energy all around me. I was raised not to question others but to listen and obey my elders. My choices of what I wanted in my life would come together when I was an adult and followed the rules of life according to what everyone else was doing.
In other words, I was not taught to learn from others but to be more like them.
What I did learn from organized religion, is that the Universe is all love, all good, never judging, always allowing. Each of us are blessed, each man, woman, animal and plant. The
air and water are brothers and sisters, a family connected by one Divine Source.
It is an Energy Source that is of the highest frequency of Love, light and joy.
How can anyone allow a child to go hungry, a woman to be told she is unsuitable and a man to feel alone?
Watching the air turn brown, waters becoming contaminated, trees destroyed, both insects and animals becoming extinct, with the knowledge we are a part of each other, how can we let this happen?
Maybe it is time to recognize how beautiful our family is and how everyone is here to assist us in finding our joy. Imagine everyone holding each others hand with love in their heart. There would be a ring of joy and happiness throughout the planet. If the Divine is love, so is Jesus, so are the trees, the air, the birds, your pets, even your worst enemy, is of that same vibration. You just have to choose whether you are willing to learn from them or judge them.
Rome was not built in a day and it does take a village, so don't think that you are here alone.
There is always someone to smile with, sing with, play with and to love, you just have to allow others to do the same.
"Alone we can do so little, together we can do so much."
