humility

Rising Above

Accused of plotting
‘Not being sincere’
How it did irk me
And make me feel queer!

I released some emotion –
Without a commotion
It soothed me and salved me
And lessened my fear.

When all of our fearful emotions are felt;
When all of the dastardly cards have been dealt
That’s when it happens;
That’s all that it takes
To finally feel the difference it makes

To say that I cherish all the lessons to learn
Would be boldly denying ‘it can make me churn’
Churning and learning go hand in hand
As we valiantly approach a warm place in the sand

As God is my witness,
And witness he does
(Not judge or condemn me,
Just sends me his love)
If I resolve to be humble
At this time in my life,
To quietly ponder all that it lures
It will help with my future,
Of which I am sure
Desperately, definitely depends on our love
And culminates, rightly, in Rising Above

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

A TINY LITTLE THING CALLED ‘LOVE’

Hello family

This message is about love.

As we see the world evolving we see many unloving things happening in our experience that does not give us the feeling of being loved and cared for in a way that God meant for us to be when he created our souls; and, through his laws, allowed the release and cherishing of us to this earth-based environment.

This kindergarten has become infected with the most vile of viruses – that of self-involvement, self-reliance, hypocrisy, judgement and lies.

There is little of the love, truth and humility that was desired for us; and God-reliance seems an impossible position to take.

How can we trust such a harsh and punishing father who, we think, will allow for slaughter; infestation of diseases; and immoral happenings that we have almost become numb to in our daily lives.

Some live it harshly, and, if we’re lucky, we can watch it through our vantage point as spectators of the nightly news.

Christine Leinonen (in the clip below), the mother of a missing person – at 4.45 – makes a heartfelt plea to us to ‘please, let’s just get along’ after the senseless slaying at an Orlando nightclub the other night.

Just the tip of the iceberg to what is happening all over our world; and is an attempt to make us aware of a world that is struggling with our demands and prejudices.

We feel comfortable with the lie; the truth is too hard to feel our way through. Truth offered in love and compassion for who and where we’re at can be as revolutionary as anything we can imagine; and a good place to start.

The truth is we are those things that we are learning in the Kindergarten of our existence. We are self-involved; hypocritical, judgmental and we tell lies. We also use denial, justification, minimisation, excuses and will not take responsibility for our actions.

I can hear you scream : that’s everyone else, not me! Not even a little bit? Do you sometimes question the value of another person and their opinion; do you sometimes feel that of yourself, even?

Do you think of love as truth? What is love to you? Is love the ultimate goal? Is there love in every interaction that you make and every thought that you think? Is love a barter? Is love a gift? Do you expect love? Do you demand love? Do you know how to love? Why do you bother to love? Should you be loved? Do some people not deserve love? Should it be deserved? Do you need love at all? Is it better to be loved or to give love? Can you conceive that you can be loved unconditionally? Is love a condition to be in? Are there levels of love? Can ‘unconditional love’ make you unappreciative and ‘spoilt’? If you do something that is ‘wrong’ – either from God’s perspective or society’s – does this mean that love should be withdrawn from you? Is there always a way back to love from any condition? Can love and judgement exist in the same place? Can we be shown the way to love? Who can help us with love? Can love change the world? Is there a better solution than love…. for the whole world? Is it possible to make every decision one that is made in love?

If these sharings about love make you feel resistive, uncomfortable or angry, do you know why? Or is it God? It’s not the love that makes us feel those things, it’s God. Again, I ask… why? If God is love…. or, if God doesn’t exist at all…. why? Seriously, why? It is something we all need to ponder.

The love that we want to see in the world starts with one person at a time; and is the virus, or ‘cult’ that we want to spread as rapidly and vigorously as we can manage – and we can manage much more than we give ourselves allowance to do.

With all my love. – See, there’s a lie right there. I want to say ‘our’ love to represent the spirits sitting with me who also desire to share this message, but I say ‘my’ love to appease you all. Worth thinking about, don’t you think.

Send in the straight-jacket!

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.
