I am :-)

Love, cuppa and Lentil Pie

Darling, I thank you for your continued tutelage as you give me the opportunity to grow in my spirit through conversation and experimentation with thoughts, values and my responses, energetically, to those. We shared a lot of that yesterday afternoon in one of our favourite spots.

When we began I was trepidatious – not wanting to enter the arena of perceived judgement and vulnerability. We’ve been there way too many times and I had decided that I was out – I needed to find a new direction where I could grow my ideas and values without offending loved ones or disappointing myself with the suppression of my spirit; and to allow continued, barely disguised, facades to stay in place – enabling our unit to continue without real challenge and thereby without growth.

I have to say that I am a pleaser; an organiser; someone who values family above all other – or I was. I will now be the pleased; I will organise according to God’s Laws; and family now are those who choose to be in alignment with those values. I am prepared to let-go my stranglehold on all that I once found sacred.

To be honestly honest, a lot of my continued involvement came from a place of not getting it right – not leading and loving the way I know, in my heart of hearts, it should have been. I’m still not there, but I can’t get there from a stuck place and surrounding myself with the same deterrents that I have always allowed to invade my unconscious self. Soothing and attempting to control my fate.

It’s all in God’s hands and the more I interfere, the longer it will take. It’s not making me happy and the evidence that it is not serving the purpose I have been working towards is obvious.

Our conversation took us to many places and I have realised that I am prepared to let go of a lot of my opinions – especially as they pertain to others, which, in the end, do not mean a lot for my life – they’re just opinions and opinions change.

I am more interested in working towards developing my resonance with knowledge – tapping into the steady flow of consciousness generously provided by God to all of his children. The conversations can happen still, but, in so much as, they will be learning tools to indicate to me areas that I need to work on for the benefit of my soul and how it reflects on all other things in God’s Universe.

I don’t believe that this information will please you greatly, and I will be, no doubt, thought of as someone going through a crisis – and you would be right. A crisis of the soul. I know that this determination will ultimately lead to much better results than the previous, not working at all, one did.

I look forward to sharing one of those Lentil Curry Pies with you very soon.

All my love. Mum.

Let God In

In the darkest of our hours
In the ever changing light
Let God’s Love embrace you
Let His guidance be your sight

Among all the struggling souls
On this world and the next
Let God’s Grace restore you
From all things hexed

There is within our being
A light that shines forlorn
Waiting for the wisdom within us
To be nurtured and reborn

In every ounce of trouble
There’s a clue to who we are
Leading onto greatness
That’s so near and yet so far

I invite the ever present
I invite the yet unclear
I invite the many masters
To stay close and to be near

Let’s kick this evolution
That we all can feel is naught
Not conducive to the outcome
For which we have been taught

It’s just a fleeting moment
It’s coming to that place
Where we can all delight
In all things that we face

Face off bad emotions
Kick them firmly out the door
Don’t let them keep us bounded
To things we want no more

Let us prepare the welcome;
Realise our sin;
Put a smile upon our dial;
And Let God In!

Some yummy goodness

A new favourite from Food Impromptu

ON ANY SUNDAY

Families converge
Yards get a serge
Driving and walking
Talking, consorting

Life seems simpler
Easier
Calm

Delight in this time
Be good and relate
With acceptance and love
All the things that are great

Today is the only day of your life
No before
or after
can deter your laughter

Seek only to know now
What happiness is
For life on a Sunday
Is really a fun-day!

LIFE

Life’s an experience
I’m sure that you know
But how do we continue to grow?

By living a life
So live it right now
Not tomorrow or Wednesday
Right now that is how

How to be free from the concerns that we show?
They really really really must go

They ground us and hold us
From greater pursuits
They even can have us all dressed up in suits!

Suits to suit others
Not ours at all
When will we ever remember the call

The call to our greatness
That’s really all

This time like no-other
Can help you relate
To having a go at the things that can’t date

Like laughing and crying
And smiling too
These are worthwhile things to pursue

Take a look at a child
And then you will know
This is the very thing we should sow

Sow in some fun
Some happiness and love
Mix it all in
And don’t use a glove!

Get down and get dirty
From this day till the next
Then maybe we won’t be so perplexed

“A Dog’s Purpose”

Remember, if a dog was the teacher you would learn things like:

  • When loved ones come home, always run to greet them.
  • Never pass up the opportunity to go for a joyride.
  • Allow the experience of fresh air and the wind in your face to be pure ecstasy..
  • Take naps.
  • Stretch before rising.
  • Run, romp, and play daily.
  • Thrive on attention and let people touch you.
  • Avoid biting when a simple growl will do.
  • On warm days, stop to lie on your back on the grass.
  • On hot days, drink lots of water and lie under a shady tree.
  • When you’re happy, dance around and wag your entire body.
  • Delight in the simple joy of a long walk.
  • Be loyal.
  • Never pretend to be something you’re not.
  • If what you want lies buried, dig until you find it.
  • When someone is having a bad day, be silent, sit close by, and nuzzle them gently

WITH BUGS IN MY EYES

Please will you tell me
The man did persue
The answer to this very perplexing a-do

Why does a dog
Continue to drive
With its head out the window
And get bugs in its eyes

The answer is simple
And I’ll relate it to you
Thank you for asking
Now this is my view

When a spirit arrives
And comes fully alive
The very experience is worth all of that jive

Exhileration
Excitement
Anticipation and more.

No matter the issues, the problems or size
I’m sure you agree with my whys
What are a few
Bugs in the eyes?!

The promise

It’s important for each of us to claim our sovereignty and be prepared to accept and appreciate all that comes into our experience. There’s a message for us in each transaction with others – our teachers.

To blame, deny, resist or project will only keep us in a place of resistance and disconnection with what is required to progress in our journey back to the pure essence of who we are – who we desire to be.

Nobody on earth at this time has achieved what we are capable of, but it is available to us all. Our journey is not just this earth existence – there is so much more awaiting us.

In human terms, it means being prepared to forgive and work on our own repentance and love; resist expectations on ourselves and others, and how things should be; and also focusing on our loving desires by using intention and attention.

There are none of us without sin within at this stage, so we need to work on clearing our energies/souls from all things that are not in alignment with God’s Love.

This is where we need to discern the difference between God’s Love and human love ideas.

God’s Love can appear harsh to the human brain. His rules are consistent and unbending. Sometimes you can appeal decisions and consequences in the human world – not so with God. The same law applies to everyone, all the time. He has designed them so that we can easily navigate through our existence with certainty … if we choose – and do not resist.

In each moment, the question is: is this thing I am thinking or doing the most loving of my choices at this time.It really is that simple. You will be rewarded or corrected. Not necessarily immediately or blatantly, but the balance sheet will be updated.

If we all choose to walk with God – and I’m not saying with religion. I’m saying ‘with God’, our futures and the future for our loved ones will be assured.

Don’t try to imagine what that would be like because we’re not capable from our positions at this time. Just feel your way through it, and appreciate all events and teachings we are presented with.

I have absolute confidence that we can do it. The more the merrier – it is true.

See you in my dreams, as we climb the ladder that is ‘life’ together, making our way to the promise.

A VOW

I solemnly promise
To do as I please
To have you and hold you
And love you with ease

Our beautiful union
Is one made on trust
And something a little closer to lust

For as long as our paths match
You’ll have me with you
Nothing can stop me from loving you

Even in darkness
And deep despair
Our bond will be a comfort
To help us repair

For loving each other
Is a breath of fresh air
To a  union of souls
Nothing does compare

 This journey will take us
To peaks high and low
But never be sorry
When you have to go

Stay true to your spirit
Give it your all
When your life summons
You must answer the call

Promises made at the core of our being
Keep knocking and knocking –
They will have us fleeing

Take with you my imprint
And know in your heart
That our goodness is greater
Than when we did start

A Little Girl’s Letter to Jesus

I have transcribed this letter from a video with Russ Dizdar and David Heavener. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=detGrYXpFas

“I can’t imagine how you must feel, Jesus. I can’t imagine the pain and anguish you experience as you see the many, many little girls and boys being sexually victimised in the most horrible ways.

I can’t imagine how it angers you when the people that do these things are those who look good on the outside and claim to be your children. I can’t imagine how you must feel when people who claim your name turn their backs on such sin and crime; and refuse to bring such sin to light.

Jesus, sometimes I wonder, how can you let it go on? How long, oh Lord?

But then I remember that you are merciful to all. You desperately want those perpetrators to come to the end of themselves and fall at your feet in true repentance for their sin.

I forget sometimes that you are sovereign; that you are merciful; that you are in control of it all; and that someday, it will be made right.

Oh Father, I pray for the victims. The innumerable little girls and boys, the teenagers who are being sold for sex. May you send the right people to guide them to you. May they know your love; may they realise how much you care about them. May they find healing and rest in you. May they find protection from the enemy of their souls; may they make that hard decision to take responsibility for the response to the abuse. May they forgive and not become bitter.

I pray that you would raise them up and someday their pain would be used to help other little boys and girls. I pray for the parents and church leaders of the victims. I pray that you would raise up people that would realise the implications of abuse and how it destroys a person.

I pray that you would give them wisdom in relating to these broken children and you. I pray that if they have been abused themselves, and have sought help, that they would be willing to work through their own pain I pray that you would break the chains of generational abuse in my hometown and the surrounding communities.

I pray that there could be freedom and healing and that it would come only from you.

And, lastly, Jesus, I pray for the perpetrators.

I pray that they would come to the end of themselves. I pray that it would happen in this life, and not in the next. I pray for their souls. I pray that you would have mercy on them. I pray that their evil deeds would be exposed now and not at judgement day.

Oh, Jesus, have mercy please.

They need you just as I need you.

Oh, God, please send the right people their way to take them by the hand, and to lead them to you. I pray for repentance and restorations for them. I pray for a Godly sorrow that would lead to repentance.

I know you care, Jesus. And I thank you so much that you are working behind the scenes.

Thank you, Father.

Amen”
