I am a child of light. I am Christ. This doesn't mean what ever you think it means. It doesn't even mean what I think it means. It does mean that I feel I can only truly be at peace by accepting who I am, accepting that I have the same potential as every other human being. I am a spiritual being having a material experience with a Christ connection in my heart. Christhood is not a destination. My current level of understanding is that living in Christ is constant self-transcending. I am willing to seek a higher understanding of myself and others. I don't have to be perfect to be loved with out conditions, anymore than you or anyone else does. I simply am.

Probably no new postings Dec 27 thru Jan 6.


December 24 and 25, 2008

Christmas Blessing. May your vision of the who, what, where and when of Christ be expanded. May people who interact with you on a daily basis see Christ in you and at work through you. May you see what you need in order to grow. May your peace be deepened and actively spread to those around you. May your knowledge, power and love be balanced.

How often, when we are willing to take responsibility for our emotions, do we say I'm angry because they ... ? Or perhaps we say I'm angry because the situation I have no control over is ... The point is are we willing to say I'm angry because I ... ? Are we willing to see our part in creating the very situation causing the anger? Are we willing to look at why we are choosing to respond in anger? This is what will give us the freedom to change it.

"I affirm that Archangel Michael and his billions of Blue-Flame angels are setting all people free from the consciousness of death that makes them less. They are now free to embrace the consciousness of life and BE MORE, transforming the Earth into the MORE of the kingdom of God."

"...death can be understood as a spiritual thing where it's actually a positive. I think as somebody said, it's liberation because it's a liberation of our higher being from that limited sense of identity. And that gives us the sense of joy that we are now free. And then we don't have the sense of loss because we now realize that we are going to gain from it. But the trick is to overcome this whole concept that if something dies it's a loss."

I surrender to the light. I choose LIFE. I choose peace.

"It's not always about taking the pain away, as much as it is having help to deal with it." (Quoted from a Touched By An Angel special.) Just the word death seams to frighten people in various ways. Half the people have just acknowledged the pain, and that's all I needed. Half have made it their job to try to make me laugh. I guess they run away from pain. Anyway, it is being worked thru. Once the guilt is removed, the pain is in the separation. And I'm learning more about my thoughts on separation. I've still been separating the material realm from the spiritual realm. I've still been thinking of the material realm as being only that which is physical. I still had a shade of the idea that when someone was no longer in the physical body, then they were beyond reach. That only Ascended Masters could "bridge the gap." Well a much more fitting legacy for my friendship with Bridget is to break up some more illusions. Beloved Jesus Christ and Maitreya (teacher), show me the truth.

December 20, 2008 part 2

Oh I get it a little. The death of people we care about triggers our sense of separation. Because I'm currently trying to overcome the sense of separation, I'm especially susceptible to this. The pain of separation is something we need to stop identifying with. Jesus said something about death being the last enemy, the last illusion to be overcome. We experience many illusions of death (separation). The separation from God, the separateness of individual people, the finality of physical death and the separation from those we knew in that physical form, separations in our family, separations even within ourselves. What understanding awaits severing identification with each of these illusions? What does it feel like to be free of this pain?

December 20, 2008 part 1

I guess it's a good thing that we wish people peace when they are grieving. It doesn't touch the pain, though. I'm not even sure it modifies the anger. We recognize that people need to come thru the grief to a place of peace, but my gosh. I have to forgive myself for not going to visit her. Erase the guilt. She doesn't deserve that to be the legacy of our friendship. But oh my, the pain. I guess in transmuting the pain into peace, perhaps I'll help others see the way. Anyway what a perfect time of year to be doing that. There are so many families that have wounds of people who have died during this lovely festive season. Perhaps as I walk thru this, I can help them enjoy this season a little more.

December 19, 2008

Well guilt is the recurring theme. The times I've cried heavily when someone has died have been when I neglected to go visit when I felt prompted to do so. My suggestion is to not procrastinate when promptings are associated with people. Someday maybe I'll give up procrastination all together.

Peace be with my dear friend Bridget. Her very favorite books are a 6 volume set: Life and Teaching of the Masters of the Far East by Baird T. Spalding. These are the ones she felt gave her the best spiritual teachings on how she wished to live. Her favorite books before finding these were the green books from the Saint Germain Press. She might have even had a complete set of 20. Bridget lived Christ teachings.

December 18, 2008

Wow, guilt. I wasn't expecting that to be the reason behind this recent illogical behavior. I wasn't even really conscious of feeling guilty, although I was sort of aware of it. I knew that I didn't feel like I was working up to my own standards. I didn't realize it would actually affect my decisions. Today when someone asked me a very simple question, it was like a light bulb suddenly shown on my attitude of the last month. I realized I was headed down a path that didn't even make sense, although for the past month it has seemed totally reasonable. How our perspectives can change in the blink of an eye.

December 17, 2008

How can a person be at peace and be worried about money? Do you think this time of year has become so materialistic in order to keep people from feeling peace? I decided to make some gifts and not to give others. But here is a very odd thought for you. When I decided not to give a gift to some people, I actually wondered how I would let them know I love them and they are important to me.

December 15, 2008

Is trying to describe who we are, even as co-creative children of God (and we are so much more); like trying to describe the Grand Canyon with words?

December 14, 2008

Letting Go. One way is when you are ready to be free of something to ask Archangel Michael to cut you loose and set you free. Then monitor your thoughts and feelings so that you don't go picking it up again. If a thought or feeling tries to snag you back into the old ways, remind yourself you are free of that now.

December 13, 2008

Peace and freedom feel so good. I wish we would all do what ever it takes to feel them deeper and more purely. I wish we wouldn't let fear of pain or pain itself hold us back, so much. It makes such a big difference on how we interact with others.

Simply saying no. I was watching a documentary on the Von Trapp family portrayed in the movie The Sound of Music. It was saying that what is compressed into a month and a day in the movie was actually 11 years in real life. Maria married Captain Von Trapp in 1927. The captain very much wanted to command a technologically advanced submarine, but refused to do it for Germany at the time. The family had been singing professionally for two years when they were asked to sing at Adolph Hitler's birthday party and refused. One of the sons was asked to become a doctor in one of the hospitals, but refused because of all the stories of Jewish doctors that had disappeared to created some of these openings. So after saying no three times to the Third Reich, then in 1938 it was time they had to leave their beloved Austria. Do we show the courage to say no? Do we go a step further to let go, forgive and move on? It's time Germany let go. It's time Austria let go. It's time Europe let go. I didn't say forget, I said let go and move on.

We need to be responsible people and deal with our own stuff, but we also need to recognize when stuff is not our own. We can transmute and purify some misqualified energy that is not ours, but sometimes we need to send back to the misqualifier what we can't do anything with. With Mother Mary's help, I transmuted what was my stuff. But I also found that many of the thoughts I thought were my own, thoughts I struggled not to have, were actually memories of horribly angry and hateful statements that had been yelled into me. I refuse to carry them any longer.

December 11, 2008

Sometimes processing old stuff has nothing to do with analyzing. In fact trying to analyze what is being felt, would hinder the process. Sometimes it's so incredibly painful that it is best to experience it as little as possible to let it go, like dross rising to be skimmed away. When it is finally time, I suggest requesting to be held in someone's arms like Mother Mary, someone you feel comfortable with. Let the pain, the hurt, the anger, the programming come to the surface. Like I said, experience as little as possible. The goal is to let it go. Some pain that's not so intense can be taken into your own heart and transmuted. But if it's so intense as to be paralyzing, then Mother Mary, or whom ever you choose, is happy to help transmute it and return peace and love to you. They probably have even been waiting for a very long time for us to make the decision that allows their help in accordance with the Laws of Free Will. After you have made the choice to deal with it, to stop trying to hide from it, to stop trying to escape, to stop ignoring the signs; then all the aid you need can be released to you. Just take a deep breath, go for it, and be done with it.

December 10, 2008

Two things occurred today. One had the potential for agitation. I focused on sending this person love, not being attached to what we were working on, and not allowing myself to make up how they might be reacting toward me. It worked beautifully. The person didn't evidence any of the feelings I was tempted to be concerned about. All the difficulties were easily cleared. The second was that I appeared to innocently walk into a meeting that felt more like a mud puddle. I recognized that it wasn't my own stuff, and that the thoughts and feelings I was picking up on were not necessarily even anyone else's in that meeting; that someone else might have inadvertently "stepped in a mud puddle" and brought it with them. Anyway, I managed to stay detached and say a prayer to help clear the lower thoughts and feelings out.

If you don't mind this picture, I'll share with you a technique I use. It's of flushing a toilet. Long ago when I started doing healing meditations, I would envision going into my heart, going down three steps (representing relaxing deeper and deeper) and then numerous picturings depending on what I was working on. One of the first was sitting near a fountain and having a conversation with Jesus. Another was washing the feet of someone I was working on forgiving. When that poem, Footsteps, came out; I started picturing walking by the ocean with Jesus. When I needed healing, I envisioned a pink cloud that I could lay down in. I eventually created a rather complex picture with many areas, a mountain, a lake, fields, a stream. Well, there is also a rather large toilet. It's sewer system pipes to areas of violet flame in the schools of light, so that what ever I place in there can return as pure energy. So when I'm processing feelings and thoughts or memories that I'm ready to be free of, I can picture myself flushing them down this toilet and asking for what ever pure energy I request to be returned to me.

December 8, 2008

Well, I've been doing some inner processing, but I haven't focused on the conscious processing yet. It's been a lovely day, though. Some friends and I discussed another layer of depth in being ourselves. And I went to a party and focused on letting divine love stream from my heart. I was more relaxed than ever in such an environment.

December 7, 2008

THANK YOU! Blessed friends, thank you.

December 6, 2008

Difficult processing. We put it out there (yesterday's post) and we get tested almost immediately. Being in touch with the feelings mentioned on the 4th and spending 6 hours with the person so difficult in my life has intensified what ever it is I need to look at. Oh my word, it's painful. I'm still running from it in the old patterns of behavior, rather than facing it. Perhaps owning up to this here will help me break thru. I call that this posting broadcast, not the pain, but the intent and courage to look at, eye ball to eye ball, what ever it is that holds each of us back from enjoying the pure joy of Knowing, feeling and accepting how well we our loved.

December 5, 2008

I choose to stop resisting the attractive force of Divine Love, Unconditional Love. There is a song called When God Ran. It's about the prodigal son returning home and God running out to greet and embrace him in all the love that has patiently waited for this free choice.

December 4, 2008

How does a person acknowledge, confront and transmute feelings of anger and fear; and still remain in peace? I've got some old stuff to work thru. Somehow I need to find a way to apply who I am today to what I felt many years ago, release those feelings and move on.

December 3, 2008

Time. The clock is one if the main stressors in my life. Today had three time issues that irritated me. The concept of time is unbelievably foreign to me. A lot of times I cope just fine, but I'm never at ease with time constraints and avoid them as much as possible. I'm committing here to look at my beliefs about time and see if I can determine why I rebel against it so. Life would be so much more peace filled if I could remove this frequent battle.

The events were associated with responsibility to be on time for a group meeting, working thru a retirement party with no concept of time passing and missing my opportunity to say goodbye in person, and wasting time at night that deprived me of sleep and made getting to an early morning meeting difficult. So one is rebelling against having to be at a specific place at a specific time. Another is forgetting to set an alarm to help me be aware of the passing of time. The third is paying the consequences for being wasteful.

December 2, 2008

I decided to put this in my own words, rather than quoting. We are each unique and valuable in our individuality. It's when we try to make everyone look and act the same, that we wander. As we attune to our higher selves and higher purposes, we co-create in harmony. Each time we make a choice for life, a choice to build someone up, a choice to remove some limitation to fully living, a choice to remove something that separates us; we shine our unique facet of God's light. Each time we make a choice that does no harm to anyone else, nor to ourselves, nor to any part of nature; we help the whole. Each time we see and transmute what it is about our own consciousness that has us experiencing what ever situation, we pull this world into more light and positivity. The best part is any time we've made a limiting or harmful choice, we can always remake the choice that will change the consciousness that caused us to step out of our divine plan. I've spent so many years looking for what my divine plan is and I find that I've been living it every day. I look forward to more unfolding.

Joshua in the Holy Land - More quotes of what resonated for me.

"Do you think that what happened in Russia was just an accident? Mikhail Gorbachev came from a prayerful family. On the backs of the pictures of Lenin and Stalin in his family's living room were icons of Jesus and Mary. He is a man of deep faith, and knew he had a destiny from God to lead his people to freedom. In six months he dismantled an empire which had stood for seventy-five years. And he did it peacefully." This is in a fictional book, so I don't know how factual it is; but I liked the idea.

"We have made our religions and our cultural heritage God, and then kill in the name of that God whom we have created."

"What was needed was an entirely new way of looking at life..."

"My dear friends, I have heard recently of the many wonderful things you have been doing in your communities. You have been practicing all the things we have been speaking about, and you can already see the rich harvest you are reaping. Your goodness and love has spread like a fire in dry grass. Old relationships have been renewed, new friendships have been cultivated. People who were once unfriendly or hostile have responded to your genuine expressions of concern and interest in them and have now become your friends." perhaps one more day

I was looking for a birthday gift today, a Carlos Nakai American Indian flute CD. To my delight I found a CD called Voyagers that Nakai did with Udi Bar-David, a cellist. It's a collection of Native American, Jewish, and Arabic melodies. It's so exciting to find other evidence of interweaving.

Joshua in the Holy Land - Some would blindly accept all this book says because the author was a priest. As I said yesterday, we are so unaware of our own power. I am trying to reclaim my power where ever I can, so I do what I can not to give it away, either. This means I use my gift from God of discernment, a gift we all have, and take what resonates and leave the rest. These quotes are some of what resonated for me.

"We can't continue living this way." "A community can't exist with everyone filled with hatred." "Your children deserve better than that. They have a right to grow free of suspicion and fear and hatred."

"Yes, it is beautiful what can happen when people try to sense what God wants and open their hearts to his voice." more tomorrow

November 29, 2008

Joseph Girzone wrote a fictional series of books about Joshua, a character portraying Jesus in today's world. I've been reading Joshua in the Holy Land. It's about unifying and strengthening the people who are working for peace. In relating Joshua to Jesus it might sound like only someone who can raise people from the dead could bring about the unification, but I don't believe this. What spoke to me was that there were already people in every group (the various sects of Muslim, Christian and Jewish) working toward peace. We are so unaware of our own power to take dominion. As the people in the story united and formed a oneness, their talents were multiplied. Whenever I used to read the word talents in the bible, I thought it was some form of ancient money. Only this year did I learn that they were referring to our personal abilities. Examples are the talent for organizing, the talent for sowing love, the ability to mediate misunderstandings, and the ability to bring peace to a situation. My current understanding is that these are the talents that get multiplied, both in return to ourselves and in the efforts that spread to others. Especially in light of recent world events, I'd like to spend a couple days sharing a few quotes from this book. I'd also like to again point you to the prayer button to the left. Surely some positive energy can be released from a number of us reciting a prayer that weaves together Muslim, Jew, Christian and Buddhist.


This energy is sent out thru the protective filter of Father/Mother God's will
