What often frustrates and derails the spiritual student is the quandary of how to live all the things learned along the path. The purpose of this blog is not to ask anyone to change a belief but to help those who are intent in their pursuit of living in alignment with their beliefs to put those ideals into their real lives.

WHAT IS WRONG WITH ME?
Since I sent out The Rule of
Halves, I have received many inquiries along the lines of “I don’t do anything bad,
I am really good.How come I still have
cancer/can’t shake this illness/am not enlightened/haven’t reversed aging yet? Etc.
etc.”Well, truthfully, I just don’t
know and NEITHER DO YOU!!!!
I have two friends who are
dedicated metaphysicians who still are experiencing some ridiculous physical
challenges.I have asked about this and
prayed about this.This is what I do
know……You just don’t know.What I have
been told is this…….”You do not have the perception to make any judgment.Unless you have the ability to see all that
has ever been experienced by this soul in all its journeys, incarnate and in
other dimensions, in the aspect you call “before”, and can see all the results
of any and all decisions upon this soul and all it encounters as a result of
that decision in the aspect you call the “future”, then you simply do not have
the perspective with which to make any “judgment” call.”As I have contemplated this, it seems to me
that only Spirit/God/the Cosmos has such a perception.One thing is certain….I do not.
One simply cannot know what
is needed by any soul for its journey and its completion.I feel pretty certain that many of those that
we know who have ascended weren’t particularly pleased with the circumstances
that proceeded that ascension.I do
believe that even Jesus asked that “this cup pass from me”.I’m pretty sure Mafu wasn’t too keen on being
a leper in Pompeii nor was Ramtha too thrilled about sitting on a rock for 7
years recovering my near fatal wounds.The point being, if one KNEW that whatever “distress” they were
undergoing would be the last little bit that was needed to become enlightened,
I’m sure they would say (perhaps reluctantly) “okay, go ahead”.
Now…..here are a few things
that I put forth for contemplation.
earth are you using your situation to “judge” your spiritual progress?In fact, why are you judging your progress at
This morning while I was in my “receiving chamber”…aka
the shower….I received the following:
comparison belongs in the domain of the ego only.It is not found anywhere else in the realm of
God.One does not walk into a forest and
see a copse of trees and find them whispering, “Look at that shabby stand of
trees, they will never amount to anything”.One does not hear the bumblebee cry, “Why, oh why, can’t I be like the
African Grey Parrot and communicate with humans” and then hear the Parrot, as
he angrily plucks out his feathers, moan, “So I can communicate with humans,
big deal.I have no manual
dexterity.Why, oh why, can’t I be like
the ape?”And one doesn’t find the
cherubim and seraphim huddled in the corners of heaven, whispering and
plotting, “if we combine forces and manage a sneak attack we can knock that
high and mighty Archangel off his throne.”
After I finished laughing, I “got it”.Only the ego judges itself.The rest of the realm of God simply is what
So, you ask, “Does this mean I can just sit back and
coast.”No, no, mon cher!But, all one has to do is diligently apply
the Fourth Agreement….ALWAYS DO YOUR BEST.(Realizing, of course, one’s best one day will not look like one’s best
on any other day.)By virtue of the laws
of creation that single act MUST compel you forward toward more, because that
IS the essence of creation.
**Since you cannot judge another, you most
assuredly cannot judge yourself.When I
was studying with Maharishi and he was teaching us about the states of
Consciousness there became a rash of students running around asking, “What
state of Consciousness are you at?I’m
at the 4th state.”However,
if you asked Maharishi what state of Consciousness he was in he would reply, “I’m
in the waking state right now.Later
tonight I’ll be in the sleeping state.”In other words, if you thing you are at a certain level, YOU ARE
NOT.It has been my experience that if
one “asks” and “questions”, then one “isn’t”.When you are what you are, when you forget to “check and see how you are
doing”, then and only then have you arrived.
**By judging “where you are in the process” you
are inadvertently judging everyone else.Please remember, everyone’s journey is a contract between that soul and
God, and it quite literally is none of your business.Your predominating thought about any other
being should be that they live their highest and best at all times and that you
wish for them all the beauty of life.Also, please remember, that every movement by ANY member of “The Human
Being” is of benefit to you as it raises the collective consciousness, ergo, it
would behoove one to become a monumental “cheerleader” for each and every being
on the planet.
** There is no “finish line”.Whenever you reach whatever goal you think
you have set, the Creator will have moved the “finish line” by the very fact
that creation is a constant on-going thing.So relax, breathe and look for the riches of each and every moment.
