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 dogSAMSUNG
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?!

 

Maneauver….manoeuvre??

Doesn’t matter how you spell it, you can’t do it in God’s Way of progressing.

[01:00:42.15] Mary: Isn’t it like in a lot of relationships – even father, daughter relationships; or partner relationships, we figure out how to maneauver around that person. ‘Aw, I’ll just tell dad this’, or ‘I’ll just stroke their ego this way, and then I’ll get what I want’. Yeah.

[01:00:58.23] A.J.: And many of us then come to think of God as the same thing; that we can maneauver around all God’s Laws. If my dad was a pretty hard guy and I could maneauver around him, then God’s a much easier guy, so I should be able to maneauver my way around him pretty easy. And it’s completely the opposite to that actually, God’s not a harsh person, but God has drawn the line in the sand; and that’s what law is; that’s what God’s Law is. And that’s what he’s basically saying here, we need to come to understand, actually, that there is the one way to get to God; and that’s the one law that God has stated is the only way to get to God; and there is no other way available to you; and you can try (laughs); you can try to get there without using the way, or the key that God has given you; and all you are is a thief and a robber, but you won’t be able to thieve or rob anything because even that’s not possible (laughs) on The Way.

So, I just feel if most people on earth understood that, then there would be far more less focus on their religious pursuits, and their individual scientific pursuits; and we’d start to see everything much more collectively, as there is this way – determined by nature, actually; and nature being of God’s creation means that it’s determined by God and God’s Laws as to how we need to grow. And if we refuse to grow in the way that God has designed, then we won’t grow; it’s as simple as that. We might have different experiences; we might move from side to side; it’s like, moving from one relationship to another relationship that’s identical is just a side-to-side shift. It’s not a real progression of the soul, nor is it a progression of your enjoyment or your happiness or any other state you might enjoy in your soul; and we need to start seeing it like that, as well. And we need to start seeing many of us are just going from experience to experience to experience; and really, repeating the same experiences over and over again, because we’re refusing true development of the soul. We’re refusing God’s Way.

It’s all good.

This was delivered early this morning…. don’t you hate that!

“You are totally totally totally totally fine.

“As you make your way to your perfection, taking the path of least resistance; or even the most resistance, learning and experiencing, engaging your desire to do and be true to your soul’s design, we are here with you every step of the way. Do not think that you are alone in your endeavours because you are never truly alone. We may not be essentially visible to your current understanding, but we do exist in your life. We feel your every emotion, and share in your triumphs as we sit in support of all of your choices- there are no wrong ones, just different ones. They are simply yours to experience. We see how you feel constrained by conditioning that has been a part of your existence up until this point in your life; and how more and more you reach for the answers and decisions that are more suited to your desires.

“Thinking of others before yourself can lead to delays in the creations you crave; and, in the long run, do not serve those you seek to please. Their journey is their’s and such is the nature of humanity; interference can confound and confuse beyond our desires and ultimately cause delays to ourselves and those others you are determined to ‘right’.” Possum

Living in harmony with Love and Truth

Newsflash….. The road to Truth and love merely require dedication.

When I talk of Truth and love I speak of it in the absolute sense, God’s Absolute Truth and Love. God’s Laws use simplistic ideas and were created before God’s Children ever existed. They work as the framework to maintain a harmonious effect on the universe. We see the opposite effect – living out of harmony with God’s Laws – in the world that we live in at this time – to a large extent.

A world out of harmony with love is one where only the few, seem to, ‘prosper’ and the others are left struggling and hoping. There is no need for struggle and hope, just a dedication and honouring of love and Truth; through our humility.

God’s Laws are simple and pure; simple enough for a child to understand and follow.

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

Desire for God

Extract from a discussion at the book group of Through The Mists – chapter 11. Part one of full discussion

[01:07:50.03] Audience: (Teresa) That brings me to a question I had about that chapter. About my motivation for seeking God. This is something I’ve thought about before; and I thought : does it matter if the only reason I’m looking for God is so I don’t hurt anymore; or is it I can use it to be more, I don’t know, have more pure desire? Does it matter if it’s just to get out of the pain?

 

[01:11:12.15] Mary: Very much so. You’re wanting from God – as lots of you pointed out, very eloquently – you know, there’s an addiction, actually, you’re wanting to set up with God. And it will backfire (laughter). You’re not going to get far before God’s going to want to confront you with : It’s not going to work, my daughter; you’re going to actually embrace pain in order to grow. What do you feel about that?

(conversation picks up a bit later)

[01:11:41.16] Audience: (Teresa) I feel, and I’m getting rid of that feeling of pain, but it still feels like that’s the driving force behind it; just to be happy; and I’m not sure of the pureness of that desire – maybe not so much to get out of pain, but to just be happy, is that…..

 

[01:12:04.09] Mary: Yeah. Can I put to you a different desire? Rather than desiring to be happy, could you desire to be whole? Could you desire to be all of Teresa? Whether that’s painful or pleasurable or joyful or fearful; and whether that takes you in a direction that you never have gone before. Down a path of desire of creativity that you never thought would ever be a part of you. That’s the sort of thing… that’s the desires we’re going to have if we’re going to have a relationship with God. This feeling that : I’m going to trust you, God; and I’m going to desire to not only know you but to know me. Both desires we really need if we’re going to grow towards God. And right now, me is not that happy; or happy sometimes, but there’s sadness sometimes. And, yes, it’s true, when we really grow in this relationship with God, sadness will be a thing of the past. So, it’s not bad to want joy, you know, it’s not. But if that’s your only….for example, if you want to be happy without being whole, it’s impossible in a true sense. By using the word ‘whole’ I mean to really know yourself; to really embrace everything that’s in you right now, but also the potentials of things, the great things that are in you. You have to be willing to face your fear of those things. You’re not going to have a desire for them : Yep, I’ve got that, you know, because otherwise you’d already be experiencing them. So there’s going to be fears to face as we do that, to embrace everything that’s within us now; and everything that we have the potential to be, that’s also scary sometimes. Yeah. But that’s the kind of desire that will carry you very close to God. So, I agree with what the girls said about being real with where you’re at, and just engaging God in that right now and saying : look, this is what I feel right now. Can you give me truth about this. Can you show me how this is going to work and be beautiful. But I don’t think you’re alone in that feeling, Teresa. I think a lot of people feel that it would just be good to be out of pain; and feeling like there’s a lot of pain. But as we develop humility, we’ll develop the willingness to not only experience the pain, but just experience what God is bringing to us. You know. Good question.

Living Consciously in Divine Truth

1 – What do I believe from my childhood about –
Strength, perfection, gender, holiness, self-expression, parent, society, emotions, work, fun, moral, ethics, security, lack?
2 – What do I do to avoid feeling childhood beliefs?

Addictions and supporting beliefs “….does everyone understand the relationship between these belief systems now that are inside of you; and you as an adult going through your life? Can you see the relationship of how they’re affecting you? Yep. It’s very important you see the negative side of this because that will help you make the decision to make a different choice. See, if you believe that doing all of these things in this way that we’ve brought up is actually ‘good’ you’ll never make a different choice. But if you start seeing that every one of these things must be affecting you; your intellect; your decisions; the way you see the world; the way you see yourself; the way you see your environment; the way you see your family, your friends, your husband, your wife, your children, your work and all these other things are all defined by these things that come from your childhood, you’ll start to see that it’s no wonder we’ve got pretty messed up lives half the time. And then you’ll also go : Okay, if that is what is causing me to do what I’m doing now, imagine the life that you really want. How are you going to get there? By changing these – these have to change to get you to have a different life. We need to understand that emotionally – these have to change in order for us to actually have a different outcome. We need to change that relationship. If we don’t see that relationship it’s highly unlikely that we’ll start looking at our addictions, because we have no motivation to look at them. If you believe that you’re life’s all together right now and everything’s great and you’re very, very happy thank you very much, it’s highly unlikely that you’ll change your behaviour or any of your belief systems. But if you can see that the life is pretty messed up right now and there are lots of problems with it that you eventually let yourself connect to and you can see that then you’ll want to change some of these things; and when you want to change some of these things then you’ll want to look at what you do to avoid feeling these things. But for the majority of us, we don’t want to look at what we do to avoid, because we think all these things are true. In fact many of us hold onto them for dear life. Somebody can come along and say : Look that belief is actually false. And you argue with them; you’ll fight with them. Sometimes you’ll fight to the death on one of these things – most of the wars in history have been caused by one of these issues – being out of harmony with love. Most of the deaths in the world have been caused by these issues being imposed upon a group of people in society; so many people, in fact, that they can go to war with another group of people about them. So most wars are caused by a distortion of the truth about these issues. Just even the issue of strength causes wars – what is strength; what is perfection? causes wars. Historically there’s been wars between two different types of religious faiths because of their definition of perfection; or their definition of what makes you holy. So once we start seeing : Wow, the effects of these things all being childhood beliefs that are out of harmony with God’s definition of love. Once we start seeing it, we go : We need to change this; inside of myself I need to change this; I need to start doing something actively and urgently to change this, is the feeling we would have. We wouldn’t want to keep on accepting what we currently accept.” Jesus
