This week's focus is on untangling yourself from allover complications. Over complication is a time and joy thief, designed to rob you of your free- will, your divine thoughts, and giving you permission to struggle. We have been taught out entire lives the our 'path' is one long horrible struggle. But this is only true if you choose it to be. It is a choice you make at an early age. It's not a bad or good choice, just a choice that needs to be re-examined. It is for you to decide if this choice continues to serve a purpose for you, if it is useful for your spiritual growth, or not. You might consider quietly settling into your own presence, you own journey, your own heart, your own experience, your own path, and your own thoughts. Some of us don't even know our own thoughts. We feel we need to wait and find out what other people are saying before we speak. We can not allow ourselves to enter other peoples drama, other peoples journeys, other peoples stories, other peoples purpose or others thoughts; they only rob us of our own.
"There are people that desire to experience lessons through the veil of need and/or some form of pain. There are other people that enjoy the veil of drama. If that is you, then enjoy that choice; know you will experience life and learn many valuable lessons through these veils, but know it is YOU whom selected your learning method. All methods are equally valuable. You will deal with people that think they see reality very clearly and will be glad to tell you all that they know, and tell you how they see your reality. be patient with these sweet souls; after a while they will run out of steam and look up to see the sublime of what is, and begin to experience what is. They want to impress people with all they know and all they do, in hopes that people will look up to them. In reality, they are doing it backwards and by approaching people backwards, they are creating the very opposite results they are trying to achieve for themselves. Someday they will rest, not within their head knowledge, but within their own Being. They will see they are already fathomless love, they will begin to ask wonderful questions; not about things outside themselves, but inside the soul."*
Consider for a moment a person who is a bragger. They really want people to admire them for all they know and all they have accomplished. But no one admires them because they have chosen the 'big ego veil' to learn their lessons. The 'big ego' needs to be validated every waking moment. The truth is, they are already validated, they just don't see it. It is up to you to figure out what your 'veil' is. No one can do the work but you. If , in the future, you choose to be an "Un-teacher", or one who helps others to remove their veils, remember that you cannot do the work for others, they must do that for themselves. You will be putting the spotlight on the student, not yourself. All of your actions will show that you are focused on your student. Everyone, deep inside, wants to be the best person they can be. Some personalities are just trying to figure out how to do that.
For now, focus on yourself, what you need to remove from you. As yourself if you have outgrown your way of thinking, doing, being. Are you doing anything to make the necessary changes in your life? What is holding you back? We think we know what reality is for ourselves, but we do not. Some of these thoughts/beliefs were placed on us by our parents, some by our teaches, some by our friends, but most by our own hands. We think we have insight into other peoples lives, but we are only seeing them through our own veils. We value or devalue others by our own standards, which only causes people to move farther apart from each other, instead of closer together. We need to focus on our own veils and allow others to focus on theirs in order to bring all people back together in peace and love.
Remember, for every veil you remove, a gift will rise in its place. "We find it easier to lay down physicality and replace it with Spirit, yet never losing focus on practicality. For it is important to have one foot in both worlds."* Exploring beyond our physicality brings us to a place where our focused thoughts become our reality. We realize that all realities are mutable. All physical realities are a veil. There are no limits of reality. There are no boundaries! It is the ego centered mind that is constantly 'reminding' us that there is death, there is an end. Which is, of course, the biggest cosmic lie of all! Our ego says "We all die". The Universe says "How can consciousness die?" It can't, therefore we can't, it is not possible. Death is only another veil. We are taught from birth to fear death. But how can you fear that which is not real? Yes, our physical bodies will 'die'. But we are not our bodies. We are not our flesh, bones, and blood. It is only a shell used to experience this world with. We, what makes us US, is our spirit. Our consciousness. We are all a part of the Divine Source. Therefore, we cannot die. No one can kill us. Nothing can make us die, because Divine cannot be killed. We are made of Divine substance, connected to and part of the Divine. Even our bodies does not truly die, but transforms to another beautiful frequency...it becomes food for the planet.
If we want to change what we are receiving in this life, we must change how we perceive life. Begin to see others as they truly are, Divine. Yes, love others as you love yourself, love yourself as the Divine creature that you are. We are all part of the same whole. "Allow all veils to die, not us. Allow all hurt to die, not us. Allow all fear to die, not us. Allow all resentment to die, not us. Allow all hate to die, not us. Allow the veils to fall away, not us. Allow the water to become clear."* If we want to change things around us, we must first change the way we perceive things by ridding ourselves of all our veils. Fear will dissolve into nothing. Fear will lose its control. Live this life as if you were immortal, because, in a sense, you are. Remove all of your fear, all of your veils, all outside influences, all of your excuses. Realize that you have complete control over your life. When you do, you become a force of nature.
Ask yourself what restrictions you place on yourself. Who are you blaming? (Blame is an excuse dressed up in a blame costume) Do you allow your past to make your present decisions for you? Do you allow your fears to decide for you? There are no excuses that can stop us...NONE! Even if you think you have nothing, this is still not a valid excuse. You have everything you need to achieve your goals. You are connected to everything, do not let this scare you. Take accountability and find your own answers. Remove the physical veil that is making you forget what you learned in past lives. Let go of the fear 'security blanket'! We all know that we are working on a much larger plan than we can possibly fathom. We get glimpses of how big we truly are. All of our aspects of our developments are Divinity's development through us. We are Her hands, we are Her eyes, we are Her voice, and we are Her movement. She expands through us as we expand through Her.
If you feel that you have 'too many' veils, look at each one and decide if it is truly a veil. Approach the problem from the solution end. Focus only on the solution, not on the problem. If you think you don't know what you want, consider this....Have you ever asked yourself what you want? Do not use your children as an excuse. Know that you have the highest calling when you are caring for children. Your children want you to attain your goals. They are smarter than we think. :) Do not think that you have to have a full grasp of the veil concept. After all, you drive your car without knowing every tiny thing about it, don't you? If you think that you are completely content with your life, then enjoy! Are you wondering what was so important about the death topic? It is one of the great Universal fears shared by most people. If we look death square in the face, we will see it for what it isn't. It loses its fear grip on us and allowing us to remove that veil. If you can remove that fear veil, then you can remove the others as well. And last, if you want to know how a loving Deity can allow war.....My Deity didn't.
Teachers Mutterings (great little points here that I wanted to share)
~Remove filters you think are protecting you, they are not
~You have all control within your life
~You have everything you need to live the life you have chosen
~Most experiences are seen as external events, they are not; instead external events, projections of our life lessons, and our perceptions onto 'reality' we create, internally.
~Create your life on purpose
~Fear, ego and other illusions make it seem there are many 'things' out there, that is un-true
~There is no loss, in reality only change, from life to life, breathing and not breathing, and breathing again
~It is a colossal waste of time to fear
