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.

WHY DID THIS HAPPEN?
Note:“Received” this morning – indeed, most of the
WHY DID THIS HAPPEN?
In light of the events that
have happened over this past weekend, I have received several calls from people
trying to make sense of what has happened.I do not think that will be possible, because to “make sense” means to
put “reason” to it and attempt to place everything into a box of 3 dimensional
As always, I am reminded, “YOU
DO NOT KNOW”.As I have shared with you
before, only one who has the perspective of knowing all that has ever been and
ever shall be for all the souls involved will have the “right” for any kind of
discussion about events.And, as I have
shared before, from my limited point of view, that perspective is held only by
Spirit, by whatever name you call it.
I am also reminded that we “do
not know” what the spiritual contracts amongst these individuals and between
themselves and Spirit are.And, it is
not ours to know.
But I do know a few things…..
·In as much as
possible, please refrain from ANY judgment on any aspect of this occurrence.And above all else, please do not engage in “righteous
indignation” of any sort on any topic.
·At every turn,
keep your heart as wide open as you can – for ALL involved in any way…..and we
do mean all, media, families, country, etc.
·In response to
questions of “How is this still in my reality” I would say to look within
yourself for every act of violence.Let
yourself become aware of even the smallest amount of rage, revenge, or hostility
against anything and anyone, INCLUDING YOURSELF.Look at your words, “I’d like to strangle him”,
“I could have just killed the jerk”, “I’d like to give her a piece of my mind”.As long as there is violence within yourself,
there will be violence in your “reality” to reflect such back to you.
·Allow yourself an
honest introspection about what part of you has abdicated responsibility to
others, including any “hope/belief” that someone/something outside yourself
(say, the Galactic Federation, angels, guides, etc.) will “do the work for you”
so that you can simply just arrive one day as an enlightened being.Hint:Every
time you abdicate responsibility you abdicate power, thereby lessening the
wholeness of who you are, ergo, the wholeness that is The Human Being.
·In response to
questions about how could this happen after 12-12-12.Remember all of creation has a frequency
assigned to it.Just as there would be
no penthouse without a basement, there can be no 5th Dimension
without a 3rd Dimension.The
opportunity before us is to be intentional as to where we put our focus and at what
“address” do we choose to live.If you
want to truly live “up town”, then you must release your “ghetto apartment”.One simply cannot be in a higher dimension
and retain all of the “cherished stuff” from the lower dimension.Even science says that no two things can
occupy the same space.
Now is NOT the time to try to
change anybody’s views about anything.If you find yourself in the presence of others who are outraged at this “tragedy”
let yourself see that person’s own inner pain and torment.If you are required to “say” anything simply
say, “Yes, it is beyond comprehension.All we can do is pray for strength and compassion.”AND THEN MOVE ON.
Realize that everything that
is happening now and will happen is an opportunity for us to “choose again” and
to exercise the power of free will given us by our creator to create
Peace.And, in the words of that old
prayer/song, “Let Peace Begin With Me.”
