The problem of pain

“The human spirit will not even begin to try to surrender self-will as long as all seems to be well with it…. But pain insists upon being attended to. God whispers to us in our pleasures, speaks in our conscience, but shouts in our pain: it is His megaphone to rouse a deaf world.”
~ The Problem of Pain

Einstein (continued)

“I want to know God’s thoughts; the rest are details.”

“God is subtle but he is not malicious.”

“Science without religion is lame. Religion without science is blind.”

“Great spirits have often encountered violent opposition from weak minds.”

“The only thing that interferes with my learning is my education.”

“We can’t solve problems by using the same kind of thinking we used when we created them.”

“My religion consists of a humble admiration of the illimitable superior spirit who reveals himself in the slight details we are able to perceive with our frail and feeble mind.”

“The most beautiful thing we can experience is the mysterious.  It is the source of all true art and all science.  He to whom this emotion is a stranger, who can no longer pause to wonder and stand rapt in awe, is as good as dead: his eyes are closed.”

“A man’s ethical behavior should be based effectually on sympathy, education, and social ties; no religious basis is necessary. Man would indeeded be in a poor way if he had to be restrained by fear of punishment and hope of reward after death.”

“A human being is a part of a whole, called by us _universe_, a part limited in time and space.  He experiences himself, his thoughts and feelings as something separated from the rest… a kind of optical delusion of his consciousness. This delusion is a kind of prison for us, restricting us to our personal desires and to affection for a few persons nearest to us. Our task must be to free ourselves from this prison by widening our circle of compassion to embrace all living creatures and the whole of nature in its beauty.”

Symphony

My mind turns to glass when I think of you
with a shattered idea of what I thought I knew
your grace chaotic through and through
as you create your symphony
leaving a clear view

♑☥♑

I’ve let my focus shift away from you
Though I know your within
I act though thats untrue

Cling on to this life
With all that I have
should be reaching inward, but it’s forward I grab

Bring my heart back to you
Divert my thoughts
Force actions and motives to be planted in truth

Strength through convictions
Love that’s unconditional
Rest within the storms
Wisdom  beyond what’s rational

Break down dimensional walls
Spiritually affluent
With ears to hear your call

Einstein

“The religion of the future will be a cosmic religion. It should transcend personal God and avoid dogma and theology. Covering both the natural and the spiritual, it should be based on a religious sense arising from the experience of all things natural and spiritual as a meaningful unity.”

 

-Albert Einstein

Thoughts *Must Watch*

Mind Blown! This whole series can be seen on You Tube

 

The first step to enlightenment is knowing that you will be a lifetime philosopher, never completely ‘getting it’ ❤

Paulo Coelho

I  write from my soul. This is the reason that critics don’t hurt me, because it is  me. If it was not me, if I was pretending to be someone else, then this could  unbalance my world, but I know who I am.
Paulo  Coelho

I received this message from a close friend this evening:

 

 

“tonight, God drew all of my anger, bitterness and frustration out of me like poison from a wound. It hurt. I hurt bad, but I got it out. It was extremely painful, but I faced my own thoughts face to face honestly. This is how letting go happens. It can’t be a hint of it; it has to be the real thing. As soon as you see the face of what is destroying you, you know what to keep away from you. You find out that every other angle is so very free and unexplored. Every ray of energy without a story already attached. To remove yourself from the drama of every situation. Just experience it, without letting it consume you.

this is hitting bottom. . . and deciding not to stay there.”

 

-Erik Heran

I thank God for the message about to be given, and my prayer is that a seed is planted within you that takes root,
dies and becomes firmly rooted within your spirit, as the world depends on it, on you, on US.
We have been created within this plane of existence as human. Placed in higher regard than even the angels.
We have been given free will where the Angels are commanded by the very voice of God.
We have been given the gift to choose to accept the Love and gifts of the spirit of God.
To utilize these things, to Love in return, unconditionally, and called to share these gifts with the world!
(ha! too funny, as God would have it R.E.M’s Loosing my religion streamed through my music as I’m writing this)
When I speak of God i do not reference a greying man in the sky marching with a cane and sprinkling magic God dust bring peace and
prosperity to church going people. I speak of the Force from which the universe and ALL inhabitants were created.
The Source of all that is and all that could ever be imagined. He is all of these things imagined. He is The Love within
you, and the Love that streams through you. You are BLESSED to be a vessel, called to light By him, for him, THROUGH HIM.
And you have CHOSEN to say Yes! I will take part in bringing your light and your Love to a broken, contrite, Dying world.
My true purpose in writing this is not to preach to you about God, If he has taught me anything, it is that he comes
to each individual as is fit for that person. Your relationship with God is just that, it is personal, intimate and ESSENTIAL.
I urge you to meditate on that concept alone. An INTIMATE relationship with God – as a Twin meets their Flame God is pursuing
YOU. I am concerned. I am concerned that though we have recognized some gifts we have been given, we are not recognizing
the source and in essence asking idols for guidance. I grew up in a home where the word God was not spoken, nor was the concept
illustrated. We learned of astral projecting, utilizing the help of our spirit guides. We trusted tarot cards, were given
dreams of prophecy. We read of interpreting dreams. We regressed to past lives. . . I went from there to studying any and all faith bases I could from
the Tibetan book of the dead, to the Koran, to Taoism, back to mythology and most recently to Catholicism/Christianity (which
5 years ago i would have shunned entirely). At this point the veils once placed have been lifted from my eyes.
God can not be summed in any one book of theology. But we have been taught this,
God has made himself PERSONALLY available to us. No longer is he in a box, where only the holiest of holies can go, hopefully
not to hear a bell ring as he drops dead to the floor covered in ‘sin’. God is Calling YOU to HIM personally. I urge you
in your prayers and meditations to Go directly to him as the source, there is no reason for mediators. And I Promise you
any real progress you are making within these gifts is a result of HIS will, and your response, not because of the angel, or deity
you have prayed too. Things of this world are either OF GOD or of EGO, people. WE need to recognize GOD as the source of everything
within life. Being the people he’s guided in connection with you, the dreams you are having, the words that are pouring
out of you, the light-headed feeling that seeps into every fiber of your being. Within every fiber of your being you are intertwined
with the same energy that brings life giving properties to the sun. A feeling was stirred up in me today, which I would have typically
interpreted as fear. Though God has created EVERYTHING, everything includes choice. Though God created the angels to love and serve him,
over 133,316,666 (roughly) of these angels have chosen to go against the love and life of God. For each Arch angel their is an
opposing Angel generally attributed to a deadly sin. There are forces at work in dimensions you cannot see that wish nothing
more than to thwart everything God is utilizing your gifts for. Your gifts are not for you, they are for the WORLD, for LOVE
and painting a portrait of God. Making him tangible in an unbelieving world. Be cautious in your practices, always remembering,
remaining thankfull to GOD. Always keeping God at the center of your meditations, for he is the only source. The channels in
which he chooses to reveal to you are up to him, not you for interpreting. Use heavenly wisdom. Head to your heart, and always work in light.
Having been on both sides of this veil, I urge you not to just take my words, hear what God is speaking to you and meditate on
that, WITH him. You have been called as sons and daughters of the most high. Take your place. The world needs God’s Love Now!

I’ve been led through an abundance of reflection recently –  I see clearly the inner connections within most faith – for me the teachings of Jesus have been a unifying piece. . .I wanted to share some of my thoughts and revelations from this past week – not to convert – but to offer perspective and thought to you all

Blessings; is a word and topic i feel is thrown around very loosely. New Truck! ‘I’m Blessed’….Got Job I wanted ‘I’m Blessed’…..Bonus check ‘I’m Blessed’ …. Healthy child ‘I’m Blessed’…..win lottery ‘I’m Blessed’….miss rush hour traffic ‘I’m Blessed’…..

Picture the Garden Of Eden. Imagine – Perfect harmony with the creator of the universe ‘God’. . naming animals, in perfect open communication with God. Enjoying the vastness of the beautiful world created for shear enjoyment and pleasure. Complete perfect connection and harmony with God. The ultimate illustration of blessing is painted through this picture . . .Perfect unity with the Creator, perfect communication, peace, purpose, Love.

At some point this connection was severed as a result of our free will. I do not deem this to be neither a good nor a bad thing, but a cause and effect situation. At the point in which we gained knowledge of ‘Good’ and ‘Evil’ our relationship with God was severed as we became aware of our shame.  It makes me wonder if we acted any differently before there was knowledge of right and wrong? Or if we behaved exactly the same, and did not know any different.

This brings me to now – Blessing is not found in material things we receive, but by the overwhelming heart felt connection with the Creator, God. True Blessing is unity With God and the spiritual experience to follow.

Treasures; Keep in mind this same picture of the Garden, and human separation from the unadulterated pure spirit of God. I believe there is something placed within us that yearns for this connection. I also believe that God intends to fulfill that connection, and it will be done.

What do you treasure in this world? what do you spend your money on? where do you spend your time? your thoughts? what do you hold dear, what do you treasure?

I would like to offer this perspective, interpret as you will…. Jesus was in also in perfect connection with God – Jesus was one with God as the creation of the universe unfolded – experiencing perfect harmony, love, all wisdom of what is and what is to come, what has been. Jesus was encompassed within everything we all yearn for-  You, Me, Us. You see with all the ‘treasure’ Jesus experienced in perfect unity with God he yearned for the same thing we do – Connection – connection with us.

Jesus lived this human existence of poverty, separation from God, from the love he experienced in ascended places. But he is one example of a man with the type of connection we crave.  The same could be said about Buddha, Ghandi, Confuscious and to name a few.

We are the treasure that God longs for. For us to acknowledge and respond the metaphysics of God.   We are the treasure of God, of all that is and will ever be – whats your Treasure?

“Every Warrior of the Light has felt afraid of going into battle.
Every Warrior of the Light has, at some time in the past, lied or betrayed someone.
Every Warrior of the Light has trodden a path that was not his.
Every Warrior of the Light has suffered for the most trivial of reasons.
Every Warrior of the Light has, at least once, believed he was not a Warrior of the Light.
Every Warrior of the Light has failed in his spiritual duties.
Every Warrior of the Light has said ‘yes’ when he wanted to say ‘no.’
Every Warrior of the Light has hurt someone (s)he loved.
That is why (s)he is a Warrior of the Light, because (s)he has been through all this and yet has never lost hope of being better than (s)he is.”

~ Paulo Coelho

 

I am Weary, Let me Rest

Direct my path in all your ways
sleepless nights leading to challenging days
endless days leave me feeling contrite

swirling thoughts of what i must do
give my life back
remain dependent on you

i see now theres nothing in this world
empty promises, smoke screens, personal gain
lift me above

let me not be effected by cares and concerns
but trust that through time what is meant will be
i am weary let me rest

Go placidly amid the noise and haste,
and remember what peace there may be in silence.
As far as possible without surrender
be on good terms with all persons.
Speak your truth quietly and clearly;

and listen to others,
even the dull and the ignorant;
they too have their story.

Avoid loud and aggressive persons,
they are vexations to the spirit.
If you compare yourself with others,
you may become vain and bitter;
for always there will be greater and lesser persons than yourself.
Enjoy your achievements as well as your plans.

Keep interested in your own career, however humble;
it is a real possession in the changing fortunes of time.
Exercise caution in your business affairs;
for the world is full of trickery.
But let this not blind you to what virtue there is;
many persons strive for high ideals;
and everywhere life is full of heroism.

Be yourself.
Especially, do not feign affection.
Neither be cynical about love;
for in the face of all aridity and disenchantment
it is as perennial as the grass.

Take kindly the counsel of the years,
gracefully surrendering the things of youth.
Nurture strength of spirit to shield you in sudden misfortune.
But do not distress yourself with dark imaginings.
Many fears are born of fatigue and loneliness.
Beyond a wholesome discipline,
be gentle with yourself.

You are a child of the universe,
no less than the trees and the stars;
you have a right to be here.
And whether or not it is clear to you,
no doubt the universe is unfolding as it should.

Therefore be at peace with God,
whatever you conceive Him to be,
and whatever your labors and aspirations,
in the noisy confusion of life keep peace with your soul.

With all its sham, drudgery, and broken dreams,
it is still a beautiful world.
Be cheerful.
Strive to be happy.

Through the Looking Glass

 

 

Finally took the road less traveled
through the looking glass
found whats always mattered

winding paths surrender to talking trees
finally i found the cabin’s keys

I know I’ve sought this road before
free to let my spirit soar

I cannot take credit for this
heart received redemption’s kiss

 

Wisdom from Buffy

buffy

 

“I’m cookie dough. I’m not done baking. I’m not finished becoming who ever the hell it is I’m gonna turn out to be. I make it through this, and the next thing, and the next thing, and maybe one day, I turn around and realize I’m ready. I’m cookies. And then, you know, if I want someone to eat m- or enjoy warm, delicious, cookie me, then that’s fine. That’ll be then. When I’m done.”

I Heard God’s voice Once

In auditory Norm

His voice came through a Muse

Expressing his Freeform

Over come with astonishment

Humanity in his diction

I could not help but say to him

“This is it?! And I’m Not a Christian.”

That didn’t seem to matter

He spoke clearly his reply

“What did you expect my Love?”

“A man up in the sky?”

Tears streamed down my cheeks

That or my face was leaking

Water from my soul

Which God said he was releasing

He told me it was Me

Who caused my own torment

That he felt each breath of pain I felt

Experienced my Laments

I asked how is it possible

To be released from such travail

God said he would remove the bars

Release me from my cell

From my own Captivity

A prison built from desire

To please the world and myself too

He would set this world on Fire

A contrived view of myself

He said was my affliction

That self defeat, and people pleasing

Had become an addiction

I now don’t hear his Voice

But his message was very clear

Be Bold through iniquities

Don’t give into fear

You may only be courageous

In the midst of dread and anxiety

God told me I was free

To live the way I pleased

He seemed very confident

I’m Living the life he’s given

In exactly the way that’s meant to be

Purposeful and Sufficient

He finally begged and pleaded

I would leave my misinterpretations behind

Let go of extremities

Stop allowing self to be defined

My life is one portrait

A show of what God is

In human fleshly form

Where God lives from within

He experiences through me

all that I endure

For the pain that I have suffered

Acceptance is the cure

The treatment lays in Living

A life passionately

Not questioning every motive

And using my heart to see

I can’t stop from looking
In hopes you will see
Keep looking through you
Do you want to know me?
Want to Love you for all that you are
Are you willing to step out from afar?
Are you able to accept me in the way I’ve accepted you?
Can you take on all of me, knowing that it’s all true?

I’m no longer wondering
I know where I’m supposed to be
Have you found your place?
Do you know that it’s with me?
I know life is demanding
I know it’s filled with stress
I know that I’m the answer
De-tangle-thought mess

Within your heart we are intertwined
Was it within mine first?
Though I failed to see the line?
I know who you are
Do you want to know me?
Will we get there soon?
Will we be set free?

♑☥♑

 

Entwined

My heart is crying out to you
My head no longer pretends
That loneliness was meant for me
With no hopes to mend

A spirit once broken
Contrite and filled with fear
Has been given a breath of life
Releasing bliss’s Tear

I’ve always dreamed about you
Two lights float in the divide
In our secret place we would meet
Where our souls there would bind

My thoughts no longer search
My head no longer in control
My heart has taken over
Entwined with yours forever more

Perfect Creation

I know he’s speaking to you
I know you hear him clear
I know his spirit guides you
I know he holds you near

I feel vibrations from him
He draws me closer through you
I feel the Love surrounding
He calls me to give in
I know he’s speaking to me
I keep my heart open

Just that I may hear
Every word he’s spoken
We cant experience the sound
But we feel the Vibration
He is the essence uniting
Perfect Creation

Though our pasts do not define me
The pictures painted clear
Reflecting where I’ve come from
Redeemed through my fears

Where depression has led
Serenity calls me now
When heartache has followed
Divinity now surrounds

Let me not forget where I’ve come from
But continue to look ahead
hears focused forward
Forged from past’s dread

The picture being painted
The portrait of each life
As diamonds forge from coal
He molds us through past strife

But two who come together
Divinities undying Flame
Two become one
Only Epic love remains

 

LOVE her- Love this scene!

“…For my wedding, he gave me three petrified Dragon eggs. He believed, The World Believed that the ages had turned them to stone. How many centuries has it been since Dragons roamed the skies? But I dreampt that if I carried those eggs into a great fire they would hatch. And when I stepped into the fire my own people thought I was mad. But when the fire burnt out, I was un- hurt- The Mother Of Dragons. Do You Understand? I’m no ordinary woman. My Dreams come true…”

 

“Saudade was once described as “the love that remains” after someone is gone. Saudade is the recollection of feelings, experiences, places or events that once brought excitement, pleasure, well-being, which now triggers the senses and makes one live again. It can be described as an emptiness, like someone (e.g., one’s children, parents, sibling, grandparents, friends, pets) or something (e.g., places, things one used to do in childhood, or other activities performed in the past) that should be there in a particular moment is missing, and the individual feels this absence. It brings sad and happy feelings all together, sadness for missing and happiness for having experienced the feeling.”

 

Colors of fall leaves radiate

bringing warmth and brilliance

to the autumn air

Green mountains submit to colorful trees

The air brings about a feeling of comfort

in the cool dusky sky

As the sun falls behind the spectrum

Bringing about the nights air

A pungent scent of dew forms

sweet, electric to the senses

Holes poked through the canopy of night

Showing a starry view

Glimmers into ‘Heaven’

 

Are you peaking back at me?

Is this beauty for me to see?

As A lover showers his bride with gifts,

Have you given me the world,

In all it’s beauty,

Your eternal kiss?

 

Chip Cherps of critters

Cackling of trees

Senses hightened

My eyes play tricks on me

 

Though You see me through the stars

My eyes play tricks on me

Wishing I could feel you

Begging I could see

 

As the seasons change

Sooner does day become night

My eyes may see lights beauty

My souls domain is night

 

As easily as you have given the world

Take these crimson pieces of me

Let fates String Become Unfurled

 

 

 

 

Break Free

Break Free- Break free of patterns- Break free of stereotypes- Break free of peoples opinions of you- Break free from self image- Break free from negative thought- Break free from the norm. You have the God given gift to allow the world around you to manifest through you. Your thought process possesses a Vibrational reaction upon the world around you. You possess the gift to effect the world around you on a mass scale, But you must be free of stigmas and judgments. Break Free

 

Emerson

Never lose an opportunity of seeing anything that is beautiful, for beauty is God’s handwriting — a wayside sacrament.
Welcome it in every fair face, in every fair sky, in every flower, and thank God for it as a cup of blessing.
~ Ralph Waldo Emerson

 

 

 

“So, I love you because the entire universe conspired to help me find you.”

Feelings change as time is sowed
I suppose it’s presidented as a relationship growsConversations of life and past lovers
collide intermingling ones life with another

My deepest desire is to do life with one
My twin flame, burning passion

Never could I settle for complacency
Perhaps I’m not thinking rationally.

Are these things I’m feeling growing into something more?
something I never predicted or opened up for

Floods pouring through my heart
praying for whats right, what won’t be torn apart

Star crossed lovers, born from deathly destruction
do we form an equation? the essential function?

I know now my happiness may only come from within
Spirit inspired, relinquished of Sin

I want to shine a light, run darkness from your world…

Continue this path, let the rest unfurl..


Om is a sacred symbol and sound declared through multiple religions. The syllable Om is composed of three sounds a-u-m (in Sanskrit, the vowels a and u combine to become o) which when combined represent the trinity nature of the sound and symbol.

In some religions the symbol is said to embody earth atmosphere and heaven. In Hindu, the Om is representative of the Gods’ Brahma, Vishnu, and Shiva…. Ultimately the Om is widely believed to be ”Something sacred …connected to the divine or holy.”

The Om is also described as “the embodiment of the universe.” In some cultures including an Indian philosophical ideas as well as Himalayan Sages it is taught that God created sound first and from that sound everything in the universe was created. Om, as the most sacred sound “is the root of the universe and everything that exists and it continues to hold everything together”. Withing Indian culture it is also taught that from this primal sound came the desire for humans to learn other sounds as the basis for verbal communication.

Om is considered by some the most sacred of any sound and “the syllable which preceded the universe and from which the gods were created.” ” The cosmic vibration that holds together the atoms of the world and heavens.” Some, such as the Upanishads believe Om is god in the form of sound. In Hindu and Sanskrit religions the sound ‘Aum’ is used preceding any prayer as a calling to God. Inviting God’s supernatural presence to inhabit whatever is to follow

 

Gifts

We are all innately born with different gifts and ways of serving, for all to benefit. These Gifts are given by God and are pertinent to manifesting Love in a suffering world,  When acknowledged and used without self-full-filling motives.
As individuals these gifts manifest differently. Where as I may be gifted with people, possessing empathy and a genuine Love and curiosity …
for people, another may be a musician, artist writer. Another may be gifted intellectually, another with dreams. Some of us are great with children, others are masters with discernment and prayer. . . These are just a few examples – I’ve seen that those things that we are genuinely passionate about and seem to possess an innate desire and ability to perform must be evidense we are created in God’s image.
These things come together forming a tangible aspect of God, when we act in Loving intent. I keep making reference to motives, and Gifts being for all to share. Regardless of your choice of faith I believe these things are within you. M y recent studies have been in the New English Standard Version of The Bible. For a bit more info there is teaching on these things in 1Corinthians 12 and also a glimmer in Acts 13. Throughout religious congregations you often hear of people speaking in tongues, or having these holy visions. But I am hear to tell you this – These things are intended for the benefit and communion of all. We desire relationship – God desires relationship – we live this through meditation and fellowship with another.
When the apostles first spoke in ‘tongues’ they were not speaking an unknown language that was between them and God or Angels. They were given spiritual knowledge to speak in the languages of the those surrounding who did not understand Hebrew. God in his infinite desire for intimacy (in which we share) saw that all would be able to communicate and understand the Strength and gifts that come through Love. It is important that we do not define ourselves and self worth through others gifts – but instead meditate with focus on God and the collective, being thankful for our own strengths and how they may be beneficial to the rest of the body. Manifestations of the Spirit, the purest essence of God show through actions of Love. Selfless actions that we chose to perform because we know it is the right thing to do. Love is patient and kind, Love does not want of covet, Love does not fear or worry. I say this list to answer the question ‘How do I know if I’m acting in Love?
