The Two Will Become One.

i

Light, Dark
Yin, Yang
Good, Evil
Right, Wrong
Masculine, Feminine
… Alpha, Omega

As a species we have defined our word through extremes. Through these definitive words we are not only limiting our own potential, but limiting the all encompassing balance and supremacy the universe, or what I call God, is offering. The Two Will Become One. we have reached a pivotal shift, which we must allow our hearts to give way to, without the mind impeading. It is within our heart that we understand unities place. The Two Will Become One. I is time to break through these barriers of thoughts and words to allow free flow of spirit, and in turn external connection. This is often unknowingly what we long for, Connection, spiritual connection, which will also manifest physically. loose yourself. Silence your mind. Begin to hear the whispers of your heart. Allow your soul to lead. Break the barriers. Forget the extremes.

Desiderata

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.

Trying to decipher between Labels,

Am I….

Controlled,

Addict,

Mother,

Girlfriend,

Hard-worker,

People Pleaser…?

Sick,

Traumatized,

Beautiful,

‘A Gem’,

Nerd,

A Friend,

Selfish,

Abused,

Nurturing,

Christian,

Faithless,

Heathen,

Condemned….

 

I THINK, what I have been is Influenced.  Allowing Labels to define what is most precious, ME.   As a result of these labels and past experiences toiling through my head I have believed a fictitious story about myself.  Meanwhile, feeling as though I am trying to claw my way out from the inside.  Utterly discontent and uncomfortable Everyday.  Momentary lapses of clarity have begun to give way.  Fleeting spaces in time where I feel necessary, meaningful and complete.  In these moments I have let go of stigmas placed by me and others.   Allowing the constructs of my mind to merge with soul,  moving away from the world and it’s words into my home and my heart.  Where in I am Outside of Labels.  Within I am not what I have done, I am who I am.  I am not a story to be written nor a Label to be spoken.

“To those that suffer I hear your cries. Whether it’s doubt, fear, sadness, or anger I promise you a time of clarity and balance. As I began to unravel my true self and ceased to resist the flow, my life was soon followed by an abundance of… beauty and understanding that has inspired me to achieve beyond my wildest dreams. So challenge your thoughts to be positive and true, challenge your love to be vast and unconditional, challenge yourself because you deserve more then a nice house and a good job…you, me, and the world deserve to be set free. Set free from outdated traditions, expectations, stereotypes, resentments, all the things this failing world insist you do only to get you further away from understanding your limitless value. There is a part of you that is a part of it all and as you learn to love and trust that piece you will awaken and gratitude itself will open new doors for you.” ~ Bevis McGuire @ http://bevismcguire.tumblr.com/

 

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

Spiritual Reflections

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

 

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

Metamorphis

A dear friend told me a story the other day. A man saw a moth struggling to get out of his cocoon. The moth was in his final stage of metamorphosis. The man felt badly watching the moth struggle, so he proceeded to grab an instrument and cut the cocoon open allowing the moth freedom.

He watched as the life of the moth was short-lived. You see through this transition there is a teenie tiny hole that the moth must squeeze through, leaving the life that sustained him inside the cocoon. The man thinking that he was helping actually caused an early death for the moth as he was not able to continue with the natural order of his metamorphosis…

Growth and change are never easy. The trials and tribulations to follow can be even more difficult. But the rewards of the journey are priceless. I laugh as I relate life to a moth…but we to must leave the old behind and transform into what we have been created to be. Birth is not finished at labor, and death does not begin when your body physically dies. These things are cyclical throughout life. As we are constantly dying to old pieces of our self. Feelings, past hurts, past loves, addictions, stigmas of who we are. EGO is what we are trying to lose. SOUL is who we are trying to become. Spirit is what we are praying to receive. We are born innately Soul sick. conformed for the majority of our lives by society. Told who we are, as opposed to truly seeking who we’ve been created to be. We have the ability to co-exist between two realms….this one , the seen, the temporal. and the unseen, the eternal. The soul isn’t meant to die. Our soul is designed to transcend from this plane of existence. Everything we experience is in preparation for this. The key is in the spirit. we will remain soul-sick until we invite the spirit of creation into our lives to breathe life into our jaded complexes. The soul is personal, it’s emotional, it’s who we are. The spirit is life, fresh , able to transcend. When the two conjoin, life has only just begun as our second birth takes place…

A friend posted this image from a book he is reading. . . It sent me on a rant. .

I would like to read this book.  I am enthralled at the initial question of ‘Why Evil. . ‘ Followed by a brigade of circles talking about Love.  F that.  ‘The capacity of Love has been annihilated from the psychology of a demon’…? Seriously?!?! …’A demon knows but does not love.  The pleasure achieved in doing an evil act is the same as that with a human being feels when he gets revenge on an enemy- it is a pleasure filled with hate.” … But a pleasure none- the- less.  Let me be the one to say this Satan IS an entity of God.  Psychology of a demon means no more to me than ‘Free-Will’ or ‘Self- Will’.  I am appalled at the lack in ability for people to accept responsibility for their own actions.  Why go bad things happen?  Because People make F*d up choices.  God ordained this as a probability if not a necessity to universal balance.  What exactly is a Loving God? What exactly do we know of Love?  If not only that it is one of the most powerful things we feel which we have no other word for. . .  So then, who is the enemy? We are.

Universal Unity?

Most of us have accepted the inner pull asking, ‘whats more to this life, whats the point?’ some may describe it as a God sized hole, others may be too consumed with this material world to notice it’s there. But in the beginning (prior to the big bang for you science oriented) all we know there to have been is LIGHT. I call this God. I believe that everything in the UNIVERSE was created from this source including you and I. Would we be able to touch the sun, that gives life and energy to the world? NO way, we would burn in a heap within millions of miles. I believe it is the same way with GOD. Being pure light and love, we, in this state of human existence, are so far removed from what is pure and true that upon direct approach of such light we could not withstand the awesome energy.  AS though we are balls of chaotic energy and God is that energy which is PURE.  The two can not co-exist without the pure destroying the chaotic. ‘In his image’… we have been created with endless potential to be tapped into, both in the physical and other dimensionally. Bringing clarity to the chaos is to know your potential in union with the creator.  These truths are within us, may be different diction depending on person.  I know that we have the potential to be in perfect unity with the LIGHT.  The same Energy that formed the world is waiting to invade our souls. Will you allow that?

 

I Know Someone Who Does

I don’t know what your purpose is, but i know someone who does.

I don’t know what your meant to do, but i know it’s inspired with love.

I don’t know what he’s saying to you, but i know you should be listening.

I don’t know how to tell you, he’s the piece your missing.

He’s waiting for you to cry out to him, broken on the floor,

You’ll shout at him “why me, why me?” and he’ll show you something more.

That tug you feel it’s on your heart, so give up your false control.

Cry out and say “Father please hear me! it’s with you that i enroll!”

I sense the fear within you, confusion whispering loud.

It’s because your standing on the brink of when glory will abound.

I don’t know what his plans are, but i know they’re better when their his.

Once you let him dwell within you, you’ll receive his graceful kiss.

 

I enjoy a cigarette and a glass of red wine, all the while condemning myself, blinded to the fact that God doesn’t. He loves me with ripped jeans and far too much sarcasm. The truths he speaks to my heart white out my flaws. Listening ears are a prayer request of mine, as well as a heart without judgment. It’s not perfection I seek,  But to find comfort within my imperfection.  Knowing, with my flaws I continue to a perfectly unique creation, essential to the universal design.

 

“The opposite of love is not hate, it’s indifference. The opposite of art is not ugliness, it’s indifference. The opposite of faith is not heresy, it’s indifference. And the opposite of life is not death, it’s indifference.”
― Elie Wiesel

What is it to be Free?

sins forgiven , set apart

bondage broken, from before the start

chosen for light before the foundations of the world

created with gifts, constantly becoming unfurled

this is all great head knowledge

deep within my heart there’s much left to dredge

is there a difference between heart, and soul?

or are the connected? to repair only one hole?

is there a key to make concepts real?

one that unlocks suppressions seal?

there was a time once I lived with no remorse

lived through chaos, let nature take its course

I feel as though I had it more together then

before I bit the apple and dove right down it

I’m finished trying to figure this all out

not giving up faith, just admitting it’s something I know nothing about

In fact at this point I claim to know absolutely nothing

not whats happened, what I’m feeling, or whats coming

I think inevitably it’s better that way

free from expectations is where i will stay

free from delusions of how life’s supposed to be

from what it means to actually be free

I Am.

I Am

Repression falls, reaping redemption bliss,

worlds collide, dark receiving lights kiss.

Two become one, in the eternal matrimony,

singing sweet hymns of his righteous harmony.

 

I Am with a face

I Am within your dreams

I Am all your thoughts

I Am the unseen

Relax your mind.

Rebuke your eyes

As I Am prepares the great reprise.

 

Barriers rise, bringing deceptions clear,

Interconnected, Leaving sheep no fear.

Collect your passions, refine your mind,

What once was dust, will soon be left behind.

 

Stay your course, holding the truth close,

Listen sharply, for the voice of his holy ghost.

Loving – kindness, where received grace may abound,

We receive the lesson, bearing a thorny crown.

 

 

“When I say I am a Christian, I’m not shouting I’m Clean living,

I’m whispering ‘I was lost’, Now I’m found and forgiven.

When I say I am a Christian, I don’t speak of this with pride,

I’m confessing that I Stumble and need Christ to be my guide.

When I say I am a Christian, I’m not trying to be strong,

I’m professing that I’m weak, and need his strength to carry on.

When I say I am a Christian, I’m not bragging of success,

I’m admitting I have failed, and need God to clean my mess.

When I say I am a Christian, I’m not claiming to be perfect,

My flaws are far to visible, but God believes I am worth it.

When I say I am a Christian, I still feel the sting of pain,

I have my share of heartaches, so I call upon his name.

When I say I am a Christian, I’m not holier than thou,

I’m just a simple sinner who recieved God’s grace somehow”

-Maya Angelou

Caught between the cross hairs

In this race I’m trying to lose

Other runners act as though

It’s the other lane I choose

I run with directive

purpose in my stride

My eyes fixed on the finish

Jesus at my side

His blood shed on the cross

while I was on his mind

He’s paid my ransom for me

No sin left behind

He lifts me when I falter

Loves me when I fight

His grace is in abundance

His wisdom brings me light

I run with directive

Purpose in my stride

My eyes fixed on you God

You’ve conquered this divide

 

 

 

Divinity Abounds

Everything manifesting
Divinity abounds
Brings light to what seemed darkness
Showing no darkness surrounds
Intention in everything
Does not belong to me
Purpose through the senseless
Through an all encompassing key
Keep perspectives focused
on Truth and Heart
Out of these flows purity
From there we break apart
From lives we’ve believed
False blinds cast out

 

For you My Love, I will come through,
let my hear rest only with you.
This sleepless nights’ led to a brighter day,
as my earnest words lead from dismay.

For you My Love, my heart is yours,
the gates drawn up you’ve broke down doors.
Tainted lusts drawn from a prideful mind,
I need you love, false motives left behind.

For you My Love, my fears’ cast out,
as loves’ perfected without dread from doubt.
My heart cries out for ever questioning this,
still you draw me back with your unmerited kiss.

For you My Love, I will wait,
faithful hands have drawn out fate.
He’s drawing masterful art from me and you,
knowing in time he’ll carry us through.

For you My Love, my hearts’ made gold,
while this fire simmers my story unfolds.
All perfection is made with a cost,
as the two become one you relinquish what was lost

 

Everything seems like a struggle.  Perhaps it is.  But what are we actually struggling with?  No matter the circumstance, it seems we struggle either action or inaction.  We struggle with the question of what will or what could happen. And, how do we cause these effects to transpire.

If we are honest we may find that the majority of our motives are rooted in self-will.  Very few act purely, without abandonment for the benefit of others.  Emotion, and then feelings are the leading source of this struggle.  Desires placed heavy conceive expectation and then give birth to struggle.  As a child matures within his mothers womb, so does our do our desires.  What will we name this child?

Our deepest desires will always come to pass.  Such is the law of attraction.  We should strive to bleak free of conformity.  Freedom is found in embracing all that we are as individuals.  Releasing labels and stigmas.  Re-creating our self view, shifting focus from what is socially normal.  Focusing instead on our passions and capabilities.  We release the struggle when we regain control of our own happiness.  The collective consciousness, that is ‘God’, desires this for us.  For, he is found withing us.

Our happiness will come when we allow clarity to shine through what seems to be chaos.  Showing, what is, at a universal level.  If we search within our personal story we see that we are clearly still here, alive and breathing, still learning to let go of the struggle, and submit to what is.  Embrace the unfolding of events, train our desires to be those of wisdom, not possessions.   Connection, not control.

There is no place for worry.  The things we are meant to partake in will reveal themselves.  Such is the way of the universe.  With everything in nature and science following a specific order and purpose, how could we, as a part of everything, be any different?  ‘God’, as a collective consciousness acts as a driving force, a wave of possibilities.  Our responsibility is to become aware of the possibilities and participate when prompted.

 

Acceptance

My heart beats heightened

Eyes shed no tear

My outward appearance reveals terror

True self defeat

Gives birth to faith

Faith in myself, not some haughty face

Been searching a lifetime

trying to fill my Void

This epic quest transpires universally

A twisted lesson

‘I Am’ describes as love

As we all feel suffering, and cry out up above

 

Our power lies within individuality

Acceptance of ourselves, will set us free

Your deepest desires are what will come to pass,  whether they seem attainable is irreverent.  Follow your bliss.

 

Though I feel you always

Void seems to find me in absence

Surrounded by provision

Connection is what I crave

Individuals we may be

Our souls conjoined set us free

Until the day we may physically touch

I allow memories as a crutch

 

I’ve personally been coming to see that I have been looking to everyone else to tell me what and who God is.  What blows my mind is I’ve believed everyone else! and found myself in total disconnect and confusion. SO, me new perspective is: ‘Why don’t you decide your own concept of God’  A new journey I am excited to be one.  One where I am who I am, as God id who he is and we both Love each other the same. Agape, a Love that is not conditional.  But in fact during disturbing times we build love more, we need each other more.  We may not have verbal communication all the time.  But were words lack we express ourselves visually or rhythmically to each other.  Everything that God is is perfect, and painful and longing and complete to me as I am to him.  My biggest struggle is coming back into myself, the Person God fell in live with ENTIRELY ❤

What is Your Concept of God?

 

Amazing Water & Sound Experiment #2

So Cool! This video produces one avenue I believe God Manifests

 

I Urge You to check this out!  Will be more like this in the future.

 

Why do Christians Idolize ‘satan’?

I am by no means a Bible scholar.  But, I have spent enough time in the church, bible studies, with people, doing my own studies and within the world, to be thoroughly confused by this.

The first commandment is very clear ‘Do not put any other Gods before me’.  And the ‘Good God’ gave the commandments, right? The why are there terms and phrases like:

“Satan is the God of this world”

“Satan has authority in your life”

“Your under attack”

“Satan influenced that person who…(insert something awful here)..”

“I’m anxious because…satan has been…”

“Satan’s been busy today”

“satan, satan, satan”

 

It would appear to me, that in the act of these types of beliefs and statements, ‘satan’ is given power.  My own personal believe is that ‘satan’ is synonymous with ‘ego’ or ‘self-will’.  I do however understand that it is very difficult to accept responsibility for our own fucked up thoughts and actions.  Really though, aren’t we the ones who are physically cast down trying to get back ‘home’ currently?  Do we not act out of free-will?  Trust me, I have begged God, repeatedly, to take my free-will, unfortunately I still make awful decisions, frequently.

Either God created Everything, or not.  Either God is ‘all-powerful’, or not.  I am baffled by the concept of believing in ‘God’ for ‘good’ things and ‘satan’ for ‘bad’ things.  I’m sure the bible also speaks about praising God in everything.  We could start by not giving some things to God, and others to satan.

It’s becoming Idolatry.  We need to take responsibility actions, make changes where necessary and move on.  Having faith that God is what he is, and will be what he will be.

 

I like to search for ‘God’ in everything.  I like to think of ‘God’ as a collective consciousness, flowing through existence.  Today I decided to dive into one of my Favorite books!  Lewis Carroll’s ‘Alice in Wonderland’.  What is your concept of ‘God’?

– “But I don’t want to go among mad people,” Alice remarked.
“Oh, you can’t help that,” said the Cat: “we’re all mad here. I’m mad. You’re mad.”
“How do you know I’m mad?” said Alice.
“You must be,” said the Cat, or you wouldn’t have come here.”

– “Why, sometimes I’ve believed as many as six impossible things before breakfast.”

– “Would you tell me, please, which way I ought to go from here?”
“That depends a good deal on where you want to get to.”
“I don’t much care where –”
“Then it doesn’t matter which way you go.”

– “You would have to be half mad to dream me up.”

– “How puzzling all these changes are! I’m never sure what I’m going to be, from one minute to another.”

– “In another moment down went Alice after it, never once considering how in the world she was to get out again.”

– “Be what you would seem to be- or, if you’d like it put more simply- Never imagine yourself not to be otherwise than what it might appear to others that what you were or might have been was not otherwise than what you had been would have appeared to them to be otherwise.”

– “It’s no use going back to yesterday, because I was a different person then.”

Isn’t this a beautiful picture of a ‘God’ centered life? Believing the unbelievable.  Expecting the unattainable.  I’ve felt that in order to be a person of any faith, you must be a bit ‘Crazy’ ❤

“At the center of the universe is a loving heart that continues to beat and that wants the best for every person. Anything we can do to help foster the intellect and spirit and emotional growth of our fellow human beings, that is our job. Those of us who have this particular vision must continue against all odds. Life is for service.”- Fred Rogers
