Trying to cope? Stress is addictive! Here comes relief with RRS

So many of us are feeling stressed! …. especially during these times of covid and social unrest. Many people are doing double duties ….. parents working from home and simultaneously schooling their children! Some of us have been been laid-off but still have mortgages and bills to pay.

 We’ve become stress, if we weren’t already, but stress blocks us from our peak performance! It’s a habit of survival mode! We don’t purposely become addicted to stress, but it’s something known to us ….. familiar. We may even believe we should be stressed …. it’s our reputation on the line after all! Yet …..  stress is actually abnormal. 

And though stress has physical symptoms and even produces hormones like cortisol that can make us physically ill and fat ….. stress is a mental consciousness issue. Calm, collected and confident is our natural state, which puts us in top performance condition. And we can return to our natural state with conscious intent.

Relaxation will give limited relief of stress, but we must get to the source of stress ….. which is emotional ties like anger, fear and resentment ….. in order to rise above it.

Consider these 4 simple methods to get relief!

# 1 – The simplest thing to do when we are tempted to get stressed is to do the opposite. Breathe in the calm and loving energy of Universal Life Energy. Mind is unable to stop itself from circling in thoughts and feelings even if we tell it to “stop thinking!” We need higher help.

If you felt the pressure of stress come from someone else, like your boss, coworkers or partner, send them Light filled with loving, compassionate thoughts. And mentally negate stress by saying and aligning with something like, “Stress has no power over me. I am calm, collected and loving.”

#2 – Do something else physically:  Move ….. walk to a quiet place if possible ….. preferably in nature. Pause ….. take a deep breathe …. several. Deep breathing naturally induces relaxation ….. and calms the mind and emotions. Moving the body and coming into it mentally by breathing takes the energies from thoughts and feelings.

#3 – Contact Universal Life Energy. IT is a great gift of Our Father. It can help us surrender to Unconditional Love that is within us before we may even remember it.

#4 – Move into a higher level of consciousness with sincere intent from pride into courage ….. by mentally envisioning dropping stress ….. release stress like you would a pencil from your hand, or like a block you burn in the pure fire of Unconditional Love of Universal Life Energy. 

And to release the deeper emotional causes of stress consider the method below.

We have been unconsciously programmed …

like a computer and conditioned to stress because of our mental naivety …. perhaps for thousands of years. We’ve seen adults experience it when we were children. We’ve seen co-workers experience it. It may be programmed in our DNA and cell memories that still causes us “fight, flight, freeze” reactions. This is when contact with Universal Life Energy is invaluable because it naturally harmonizes fear, the deeper emotion. 

Even though others, our boss and co-workers can become stressed, remember …… no-one can make us stressed ….. just like no-one can make us mad….. it’s what we allow. Be conscious of  emotional contagion! The energies of stress can enter the subconsciousness to grow unconsciously making us feel uneasy most of the time!

Questions to get to the bottom of it! 

If we face it ….. the job or issue at hand itself doesn’t cause stress ….. it’s the meaning we give to it! It’s our own internal feelings about it. It’s personal! And we feel personally obligated to fulfill expectations.

The mind created this problem of stress ….. but can’t control it. We can’t control our thoughts ….. our feelings! One emotion can cause a thousand thoughts! We want to get to the bottom of the emotion that causes all the thinking ….. recognition, release and surrender ….(RRS  …  🙂

To begin recognition: Take a deep breathe, relax, go silent and make the Mental Contact. Come into the present moment and observe in a detached state ‘the thinker’ before questioning.

These questions are more of what rather than why ….. mostly because why questions are abstract and we can get blogged down in memories and associated feelings. What questions can lead back to the base emotion without entanglement!

Questions like: For what? So what? Of what? Then what? 

What does it feel like? What are the physical symptoms? Sometimes simply observing the physical symptoms or sensations and labeling it like ‘pressure around the heart’ or ‘difficult to take deep breathes’ (the one I often experienced) makes it easier to recognize! Pressure for what? For what purpose?

The primary question:  What’s the payoff?

The ego will fight tooth and nail at this point! It feeds on the belief of stress and hyped up emotions to keep it alive and kicking!

What’s the payoff for feeling stressed? …. To feel better about ourselves? …. To feel like we’re at least doing something?

Does it fill the hole of low self-esteem? What for? To compensate for insecurities, shame, guilt, fear? 

Fear of what? ….. Fear of not being good enough ….. not being fit to be loved, lovable?

Staying in self-analysis and question mode is not the objective and we could circle and get trapped there if we dilly dally ….. so consider moving to more beneficial steps!

Try this …..nothing has any meaning other than what we give to it!

It may helpful to look at A Course in Miracles which is viewed by most spiritually minded people, It has Christian connotations, but can be used by anyone! You can listen to YouTube explanations to learn what the coarse is all about.

There are 365 lessons …. one practice for each day of the year. Hence, I am sharing the first 10 lessons in the workbook, which I found to be very helpful to release arrogance and ‘know it all’ attitudes which are related to stress:  so practice thinking and realizing as per instruction several times a day!

 – Lesson 1, Day 1 – Look at any object in the room or outside and say/realize – “Nothing I see in this room (on this street, from this window, in this place) means anything.” …. page 23 of workbook.

– Lesson 2 – “I have given everything I see in this room (on this street, from this window, in this place) all the meaning that it has for me.”

– Lesson 3 – “I do not understand anything I see in the room (on this street, from this window, in this place).”

– Lesson 4 – ” These thoughts do not mean anything. They are like the things I see in the room (on this street, from this window, in this place).”

Lesson 5 – ” I am never upset for the reason I think.”

– Lesson 6 – ” I am upset because I see something that is not there.”

– Lesson 7 – “I see only the past.” (It takes at least a split second for anything we see to travel to the brain and process! Hence …. a true statement. And stress and expectations are based in the past!)

– Lesson 8 – “My mind is preoccupied with past thoughts.”

– Lesson 9 – “I see nothing as it is now.”

– Lesson 10 – “My thoughts do not mean anything.”

It may be helpful to write these down and keep a journal to record realization of release of subconscious conditioning programmed from the past.

Release and surrender

Recognition of stress and release of emotional causes are essential processing, yet the primary one is surrender ….. surrender ourselves ….. our thinking and emotions ….. our expectations …… to Unconditional Love. When we allow ourselves to recognize, release and surrender to Love …… we discover our innate courage and real security!

There is sureness and gentleness rather than hurry when we release stress because we are conscious that there is always plenty of time to do what is essential. We trust in the Great Law!

What we gain 

We can view stress, or any other emotional issue, by finding the value in it …. by giving it new meaning …. by viewing it as an opportunity to learn and grow.

The release of stress gives us the opportunity to surrender to Unconditional Love ….. and regain our peace of mind. This is a great gift ….. because we have also lightened the burden of defensiveness, resentment anger, and self-punishment. We are less vulnerable and fearful.

We are calmer, happier and more powerful.

Tempted to do something bad? Don’t trust your feelings!

Photo: Mount Victoria, New Zealand PSLB 2020

When we are tempted to do something “bad” but it feels like a “good” idea at the time….don’t trust your feelings. However there are great potential energies for us!

Emotionally we may feel righteous with a undertow of doubt. It’s all good because it’s a sure sign that we have some conscious awareness of our Inner Being! A sign that we have some inkling of the subconscious ego’s pull on our feelings. It’s a sign of conscious awareness and if we pause and quiet our thoughts then we can observe it all as a detached observer.

The detached observer is conscious and alert without judgment, while the subconscious ego wants attention, tempts us to do “bad” things, is self-righteous and judges harshly. We may also experience it as doubt, sadness, loneliness, or some other emotion based in the past.

Yet, when we feel a darkness, like self-righteousness or doubt about doing something bad, it is a sure sign … a wonderful sign … to reach up mentally and emotionally to Be and relax … accept the moment as an opportunity to Know Light and Love and our connection with Source. To feel Life in our hands … Universal Life Energy, That is God.

It’s something like this…

If I become aware of really disliking someone … I become quiet and just observe myself… I observe myself without disliking myself though I’m very tempted to put myself down because of past conditioning….instead I observe all of this as if above it … without judgement for myself and therefore without condemnation for the other person too because if I judge them harshly I’m judging myself harshly.

Then I mentally surround myself with Universal Life Energy, Light and Love and send it to them too. This is creating an attitude of non judgment and atmosphere of acceptance. It is trusting Source because Source creates Strength, and opportunity for our Freedom, and happiness. Then I drop it and leave the rest to Source.

Trust

There’s a big difference between trusting our feelings and trusting our intuition. Our Inner Being always feels good and harmonious, and when we are conscious we can get guidance from our superconscious Inner Being or soul. This guidance may appear as intuition and it will always feel calm, harmonious and uplifting but not righteous. There may be feelings of caution, but not fear. Consideration, but not doubt.

Our Inner Being knows because of Love, but the subconscious doubts because of fear. The subconscious ego pushes in doubt because it fears making a mistake. Or fears being unlovable, or being rejected, or being left out. And all these fears are rooted in the past and conditioning.

We can observe fear from a place in our Inner Being that is without judgment. And that is a place of consideration, which is love.

In a deeper sense there is only love because within fear is the potential for love because love has become a prisoner of subconscious fear.

 

Simple!

Only the present moment exist for us, but what we generate now we attract more of. Therefore it’s simple. We can ask ourselves what we want more of. By generating thoughts, intentions, and behaviors of light and love… or having an active, uplifting imagination of them we attract more of the same.

Choosing Light and Love is taking the High road, the Spiritual road… yet on this road there are challenges too… because the subconscious fights against Harmony, Light, Love.

Yet this road gets easier as we travel it. We realize, experience and know the Help behind us and with us … Source and our Inner Being.

”The more one listens to Intuition, the more is Intuition developed, and the surer and wiser become all our actions. Thus human beings, in developing within themselves that Divine Ray of Intuition, will manifest Wisdom, will become six-pointed stars, stars of wisdom, and will bring about the Dawn of the New Day, the Day of Peace, of Harmony and Power.”

The price of repeating mistakes and the hidden treasures

Sometimes we are like emotional toddlers.  It’s like whining after we’ve binged on chocolate chip cookies or going into an angry rage. We have some sense that we’ve make a mistake and what the price will be because we instinctively know the Law of Cause and Effect. But some of us repeat the mistake, making a habit of it. Yet even the mistakes of a toddler mentality has the potential to help you make a quantum leap in consciousness!

The immature toddler ego believes itself to be the be all and end all. It will drag you down further into the subconscious cesspool, causing you to believe you can never get out of the hole. I know because I’ve been there!

 Yet, in everything is Love. Even the destructive, whiny or mad trait of the ego has within it Love. Because the ego is a mental perversion of the powers of Love and of It’s twin, Universal Mind. And that  is why mistakes have the potential to help you make a quantum leap in consciousness! 

The resulting pain of  mistakes can get our attention, our mental awareness! And from that awareness we can emotionally detach from a mistake and see it for what it truly is… an opportunity! An opportunity to learn from it and rise above it, making a different choice.

It’s the emotional whining and regret that empowers habits of the ego to repeat the same mistake through the Law of Attraction! 

Therefore when you make a mistake dust yourself off and be grateful that you are on the other side of it. This connects your consciousness with the higher emotions of the heart and Love. Be conscious, aware, and find your sincerity.

That is the beginning of insights for the mind! Insights and inspirations that are lead by your heart and unconditional Love. So gravitate towards gratitude, enthusiasm and optimism.

Unless we change our attitude towards mistakes and learn from mistakes, especially when they are very painful, we can be dragged further down the road of the immature toddler mentalityThe Great Law always gives us opportunities to better ourselves. 

Dig deep and find the Love and Wisdom within yourself, releasing superficial emotions. This gives you the opportunity to make a different choice and make a conscious quantum leap! There are opportunities to know the treasures of your Soul and make creative choices for your evolution. Not only for yourself, but for all of humanity and indeed  for the world. These are the hidden treasures of mistake. 

In the hope You find Love close at hand, PortiaSLB


“Above all, do not be afraid to express, for fear of making mistakes. The greatest mistake human beings can make is to fear to make mistakes. Without them where is the learning, the evolving?”

How should we fight evil in the world?

When things get really though in world affairs we can become entangled with the negativity and it can drag us down. It can also cause us to be more focused on our individual problems. We’ll look for advantages to sooth ourselves, but we can get trapped and stuck in our negative conditioning. So what should we do to help ourselves and the world?

Self-reliance

We should not be blind to the evil in the world, rather we should be conscious and mindful of it without feeding it with more negative emotions. War on evil only feeds evil.

When we are forced to face challenging problems, everyone has negative aspects of the egotistic personality that can surface. We can be tempted to exhibit behaviors that are immature, unhelpful and even worst. Like become more afraid, worried, depressed, aggressive and even violent. 

Our individual problems are tied into the problems of the world, but others cannot face our problems for us. So we must begin by relying on ourselves.

You can truly help yourself and help all humanity by fighting to be more harmonious. By being aware of temptations, yet fighting to be more aware of your Four Square qualities of strength, intelligence, fairness and caring. And manifest those qualities to those around you and to the world. You create a more positive reality for yourself and the world!

Reliance on the Source

When we need to make a decision let us have faith that things will work out harmoniously according the Law of Harmony. In essence It is the Law of Unity. In earthy reality, things work out according to the laws of: Cause and effect, Polarity, Rhythm and Gender

We open ourselves to the protection of the Great Principle when we have faith and trust in the Source, in the Laws of the Universe.  Say and feel something like: “With the help of the Great Principle I have the power to meet the situation.”

Once you make your decision the Source will help you accelerate in that direction! And no matter if your decision is based in subconscious conditioning, conscious reasoning, or superconscious inspiration, the Law of Evolution will ultimately accelerate your awareness and spiritual unfoldment.

All paths ultimately further your evolution, even those that create a temporary downfall causing you to suffer. Unfortunately sometimes we have to hit bottom before we look up, which  resultes in more challenging conditions for yourself and those around you.

Making a decision

If you agonize or worry over your choices in making a decision it means you are being influenced by your conditioning from past experiences. You cling to the past and worry over the future outcome instead of living in the moment, listening to your Higher Self and letting life flow naturally.

Consider the process of making decisions an opportunity to open yourself to the Universe and ask for help. Make the Mental Contact with Universal Life Energy which opens you to tremendous help. Be reasonable and logical, but also listen to your intuition. It is the voice of your soul. And, remember you also have the help of unknown individuals around the world and of those in higher realms. 

Mindful spiritual journey

We live in these times of great spiritual opportunities to unfold because we are becoming more aware of the negative temptations of the ego and of evil in the world. This is when we should as observers observe in a detached manner with clarity yet without harsh judgment. Some of us choose more challenging paths of spiritual unfoldment. Yet, everyone is a spiritual being and on their spiritual journey.

Let us work take the opportunity to work on lifting ourselves up individually and manifest qualities of our heart, our spiritual heart. Let us be enthusiastic, intelligent, fair and have goodwill for ourselves and others. And, we will change the world!

I have best hope for peace in your creative endeavors now and always!

“Others cannot do things for us. It is all so complicated, that in order to find a clear path out it, we should rely more and more on the Principle of the FourSquare. Try to unfold It in our own life, and in our relations to other people, and to the World.”

10 Signs you are oblivious to the biggest problem that plagues you. And how in a strange way that problem is also a blessing

Though the ego is very convincing through conditioning and assumptions, there is also great opportunities. Here are 10 sure signs that you are oblivious to the most influential factor dominating your thinking, emotions and behaviors:

  1. You’ve become numb to the sights and sounds of human horrors repeated in media. Yet when you are alone and hear a bump in the night, thoughts of evil are born in your imagination. 
  2. Feelings of being left out and lonely can crop up every once in a while. You feel like you are obliged to please them, to make them laugh, smile, or somehow engaged, otherwise you feel unsatisfied.
  3. Arguing with your spouse or experiencing road rage, you feel stabs of angry and play the blame game, thinking they made me mad, frustrated or impatient.
  4. Your social status or lack thereof is defended by your influence, power, education, career, money, property and possessions.
  5. You complain about the weather, complain about your partner or children, and protest politics.  You can get frustrated if things are not done the way you think they should.
  6. You judge others without seeing them in yourself or yourself in them. And you justify this by thinking, “They’re so clueless, so cruel, so wrong, so privileged, so …”
  7. Experiencing ‘highs and lows’ by situations in your life or events in the news, you get anxious, worried, depressed or become delirious and entranced. You think you are a terrible person at times or have a hard time seeing anything good.
  8. Addictions overpower you and you feel powerless to do anything about them. You think, “Sure I may or may not be addicted to .… (sugar, drugs, sex, excitement), but  I’ll make an exception this one time, I need it this time because….I’m sick, I’m required to, I have nothing else, oh the hell with it, who gives a …”
  9. The world comes first and you just live in it. You think, I’m busy working and taking care of things that must be addressed. I have to do this before I can even consider anything else.”  
  10. And you haven’t a clue as to how you create your own reality. In fact you do not give it much thought at all and doubt your connection to the Source. 

The list above appears to be a subconscious ego bashing fest, yet attacking the subconscious ego is attacking yourself. We have been conditioned to blame the human ego for personal problems and global problems. But when we attack the subconscious ego, we feed it negative energy, making it grow even more. 

There is no issue other than the belief that there is a problem. 

Consider this: the problems you face now are problems only in your egotistic thinking!

Of course, we suffer terrible physical pain and emotional pain. So terrible that we’re consumed by it and even die. Yet even in death of the physical body there is another side of the same coin. Some of us create circumstances unconsciously that accelerate our evolutionary process through stressful circumstances, illnesses, death and dying. Most become more conscious and aware, reaching for harmony and peace.

We spend most of our time in the subconsciousness because we like to be entertained and dream of the future, while clinging to the conditioning and memories of the past. Thus we create our reality and challenges unconsciously in the present moment, believing them to be problems.

Can You mentally swallow this?

When things get tough, when you get stressed remember life is full of opportunities! Consciously create opportunities for your and others happiness. Remember to observe the thinker; be conscious of the ego in a detached manner. Then go to Silence. You are consciously returning to the Source and listening to your True Self, and then to back to Creation. And, you are consciously creating your reality in the moment. 

In the process of co-creating your physical reality, declare Truths about yourSelf: I am Strong, One with All Abundance, Intelligent, Sincere and Caring.

Mentally swallow and let those thoughts and energies seep into the subconscious ego. Eventually those energies return to your consciousness and you will become more aware of opportunities to create peace and goodwill in your physical reality moment to moment.

You can consciously fine-tune the subconscious by releasing those patterns that cause you to suffer like those listed above. And work to fill it with positive energies of love, caring and kindness which will grow and multiply returning to your consciousness and reality.

Unexpected help in the Creative Fire!

It’s no wonder that we occasionally feel like there’s something seriously wrong with us. We can become obsessed with seeing the wrong in the world, in politics, in religion, and within ourselves, so we fight against it. What we don’t usually realize is that when we fight against something we empower it.

The inner continuous battle between our subconscious ego and conscious self can be difficult. If you are aware of having a heart that sees and feels the truth: choose to fight for your conscious self rather than fighting against the ego.

The child in us is vulnerable 

When we fight against our ego it will do whatever it takes to be superior, to protect itself from loosing its power and influence over our conscious self, our thinking and emotions. We empower the opposition because of the Law of Polarity. And, we end up hurting ourselves anyway because of the Law of Unity and Law of Attraction.

For example, fighting back when you are criticized. The ego wants to be superior and you can get lost in it, following your thoughts to anger, sadness or even depression. The child in us is shocked and hurt, and that hurt goes into our body. We assume and believe those thoughts are a part ourselves. You can end up mad and resentful, and later even  hating yourself, thinking there is something wrong with you, feeling like you’re not good enough. 

The ego supports and keeps us in such holding patterns of thinking. It becomes an addiction for us, but we don’t realize it is an addiction. We can’t seem to control it and we condemn ourselves, thinking our spiritual practice doesn’t help. 

Fight for instead of against

When we fight for our conscious self we are fighting to know our authentic self, our presence, our Being. We empower our conscious self.

Observe the temptations of the ego to get angry and resentful without attachment. Consider listening to criticism and use it for constructive improvement. You remain conscious without following a train of thought of angry retaliation in self-righteousness or of inferiority. Maybe you are even fascinated by these fearful thoughts. Instead, just observe and let thoughts float in a stream, getting further away until they are gone.  

I am grateful for my awareness of fearful thoughts and feelings because it has stirred me to awaken to the way the ego will exert its influence to dominate my awareness and reality.

And, it can awaken you to something more – to the spirit of your inner Being. Your energy. That creative fire within that changes your awareness of your Self and creates a revolution, and evolution of change. 

You become conscious of freedom. Freedom from the ego. Freedom from the pain of hurt feelings, from retaliation, self-righteousness or inferiority. You are raising above the ego and You are reaching into higher realms of understanding. You are recognizing I am That. You are present as a soul in a body,  Self-conscious of being. 

A step beyond 

Consider adding another step to your realization and consciously fight to be one with Harmony, to align your conscious being with spirit. Say, feel and be conscious of something like: I am One with All Life, Intelligence, Truth, Love, Spirit. I am a ray of the Eternal manifesting all the same powers.  I am That. You will receive unexpected help. 

There’s something right with You!

“The Higher Self is a magnet needle and is not affected by conditions. It is the Ray of Invisible Light shining in utter darkness.”

 Pearls of Wisdom, Teachings of Eugene Fersen, Volume I, page 40.

Be neither cynical or gullible, but this much is true: Okay these 10 things!

grasp the significance 3

  1. That embarrassing reflection in the mirror of yourself is your Friend and Spiritual teacher if you are insightful, kind and have a sense of humor.

  2. Your Higher Self does not impose itself on You. You must be silent and listen for your Inner Voice of intuition with an conscious awareness of Unity. The more you listen to your intuition, do the right thing and are grateful, the more intuition you will receive.

  3. A ‘setback’ in your life can actually pull you forward on your spiritual journey. 

  4. Sometimes the wisest thing you can do is learn what not to do! Pain is a teacher!

  5. The ‘opposite’ sex is not opposite. The male-female principle, the Law of Gender, is part of you and you create your reality with it.

  6. The world may say, ‘don’t discriminate,’ but your soul says, ‘always discriminate.’ That is always use your better judgment with love leading you.

  7.  The more you live a conscious heart, are motivated by tenderness, goodwill, kindness and consideration, the more you reveal your True Strength and Power. You are a positive force, a Light, not only for yourself and others around you, but indeed for the world! And, in that Light is your beauty, happiness and freedom.

  8.  Gratitude is an emotion that opens you to abundance and helps you create more reasons to be grateful!

  9. You have created this moment for yourself. The peculiarity of the subconscious is that it both divides and multiplies. An experience or idea is divided into simple, shorter thoughts thus losing its strength and focus. Then all those short thoughts are left to grow and multiply unnoticed, but in a divided state the entire purpose of it can be forgotten or perverted. Thus, the subconscious shapes the ego.

    I hope you got a smile out of this entry and some things to reflect upon!

“When we awaken in the Realm of Harmony, we will probably remember our entire Earthly experience for an instant of time, then the dream will be completely blotted out. However, the experience will be a re-enforcement to our character. We will not be able to Fall again, because we will be strengthened by this experience. It is like burning our finger with fire. We do not touch fire again. There are degrees of qualities and only those of a certain degree originally fell.”

Eugene Fersen, Aphorisms of The Lightbearer, page 160.

Like in a reality show we create conflict in our life! But why?

fighting

Television dramas and reality shows soar in popularity, especially when there is obvious conflict. We want the characters to bravely face problems and overcome them. We want happy endings and great achievements. But, why are we so attracted to conflict in stories and competitions? And, do we purposefully create conflict in our life?

The Entertainment

Sure, we like to be entertained with games and stories on tv and conflict makes good drama. We are kept in suspense and emotionally invested with anticipation in the hope of them overcoming the challenges they face.  We like the adventure and are attracted to it because we relate it to our own drama.

Our Power of Creation

In reality shows some of the conflict is staged for entertainment. But, in our own reality we create conflict and drama in our life unconsciously because we fall prey to subconscious negative temptations.

Cause and effect modality

When we do fall prey to negative temptations we have chosen to engage in the dynamic of karma. Negative karma can be very painful, yet we may learn some very valuable life lessons.  

Myself as an example

I remember driving and coming to a stop light, when the driver of the car in the parallel lane next to me got very angry that I hadn’t pulled up further. He shouted at me and I quickly replied with a nasty response. Fortunately the light turned green and we moved on. 

I still remember that particular road rage incident, my self-centerness and retaliation, and the pain it caused me from guilt.

Yet, I learned from it –  to care about what I am doing in the moment. And, that even when I make a mistake and it is painful, I can pick myself up and know that I am on the other side of it.

That moment lead me to understand that when we sincerely quest for answers to know ourselves, help and answers will come.

Life lessons

When someone attackes us it is a sure sign they are hurting. And jumping in their pain only adds to it, feeds it, and hurts us too. They have a right to their own mistakes and learning process.

That doesn’t mean we should accept abuse. Love is strong and we can either remove ourselves, get help or report it to proper authorities.

Being conscious, calm and finding our own inner peace will help us release a retaliation response and even if the other person is not conscious of it, it will help the other person too.

We will keep experiencing the same lesson over and over until we recognize our authentic power of a conscious loving mind and manifest qualities of love. 

Pain is a teacher

Pain in problems and conflict is something that we agreed to and created through our thoughts, emotions, and most of all, our behaviors. Yet, what hurts us also hurts others.

Remember!

Next time you face a challenge and are tempted by low-frequency emotions which creates conflict or adds to conflict, to get in a fight, be brave and remember that the greater the temptation, the more importance you have placed on the lesson you have agreed to learn!

Until next time consider this quote to reflection upon:

“Another way to neutralize that law of Polarity is continually to refuse to see the negative, always place the weight in the positive scale, to try to see, even in things most unpleasant, something good. Thus we cast the weight in the right scale, in the positive, and the result is, that by and by the law of Polarity will be neutralized, and finally will cease to operate in our lives at all. Then, ONLY the positive will come to us.”  

Eugene Fersen, Science of Being 


I appreciate You!

Beautiful creatures

sit be quiet 

People are beautiful.

Sometimes I just sit and people watch. When we people watch we are looking at ourselves. 

People are beautiful, but we can also be so frighteningly ugly because we strive for external power in the world.

That unconscious desire and fear makes us do terrible things and causes us to suffer. Yet, if you look deep beyond the fear and emptiness, there is the beauty of the soul that is striving to express internal creative power of cohesion with everyone else and the universe.

How can that be true?

Even in the trouble we cause, the negative behaviors, the painful karma we create, we are in the process of unfolding our soul and our beauty. We may think – how can that be true in all that pain, suffering and ugliness?

We’ve created the subconscious ego that believes it rules the world. And, so we choose modes of learning in which we use negative energy, harmful energy, and thus create negative karma.

The Great Principle is eternally compassionate

We’ve fallen and think we can’t get up. We’ve lost conscious awareness of our soul. 

Yet, we are educating ourselves, and becoming more conscious of the Universal Laws. When we make a mistake it hurts and we think – perhaps we shouldn’t do that again! When I stumble and hurt, emotionally or physically, I always ask myself ‘why.’

Mentally we have separated ourselves from the Infinite and Source. That is a big mistake, yet not an eternal one. But, because of the Universal Laws, including the Law of Gender, time becomes a factor in our minds when we consider our spiritual journey back to full realization of who we are and unity with the Great All. 

Mentally we’ve turned away from Love and Beauty. When we think of other people as beautiful we are relating to the Eternal, the Source of Beauty. When we love, including human love for a partner, child or pet, we are expressing an awakening to unconditional Love and Love of the Eternal. 

We are harmonizing, healing ourselves.

Calming the turbulent tempest; Fear of Terrorists, Part 2

The raging storm of terror that is generated by hatred, fear and self-righteousness is also unconsciously fed by associated fear-based traits like worry, prejudice, impatience, pride and ignorance. An impersonal analysis of the situation can help us calm the turbulent tempest in our thinking, free us to be in the moment, and with the help of the Eternal begin to enact inner peace.

Unconscious of fear

Terrorists use religious and self-righteous claims as a means to unconsciously cover up their own fear and to abet hatred. We don’t know what terrorists as individuals have been through to get this way, yet terrorism is an attention-getter that is really a cry for love. It is the ego that doesn’t know how to cope with the stress of change and is afraid.

Being conditioned, they have cut off reasoning and consciousness. Their egos feel threatened and powerless, so in trying to empower their egos they fall further into hatred with a responsive belief that they are doing the right thing. With so much negative energy circling they become a slave to it.

 It is the fall of mind. In self-righteous, fear and guilt they lose their empathy for others.

The fear boomerang

People join terrorist out of fear. Wanting their cause to grow, terrorists use negative energy to attract others. And it works. An individual’s fear and guilt for not meeting the desires of self-righteousness, can be attracted to the terrorists’ group fear energy. Fear attracts more negative energy.

It does not stop there because that fearful energy boomerangs back to the originators, burgeoning, attracting what they fear – retaliatory attacks and subjugation. It terrorizes them to the point of desperation and thus they attack again. 

The energy builds as it circles the human mental atmosphere. Fear cycles, boomerangs round and round, growing world-wide, attacking anyone that unconsciously feeds it with worry, prejudice, antagonism or other fear-based traits. 

All this because of doubt. As discussed in Part 1, we experience fear because we doubt our connection to and the support of the Great Principle. We feel separate from each other and the Great All, forgetting our unity.  

Raise above doubt

Let us be brave and remember that we have the support of the Eternal, and enact unconditional Love instead of fear within ourselves, our heart. That we are conscious and aware of those individuals that fear and hate, yet they know not that they hurt themselves.

Just like a child that hits its mother. What does a mother do? She holds them, tight to her heart so the child doesn’t hit, until they return to their natural condition and consciousness. It is an attitude of unconditional Love. This can help us all to face the situation with courage, while not tolerating hatred, prejudice and egotistic self-righteousness.  

Also consider these methods to return to calm and concordant thinking:

  • Exercises like the Radiant Heart and the Mental Contact to surround yourself in unconditional Love. It is a protection. Fear does not exist in Love.
  • And remember, by being mindful and in the moment we live now. Our thoughts turn away from fear. We interrupt dwelling in negative energy. We let go of resentment and trying to get back at others, knowing that holding on weakens us.
  • And, we can turn towards the creative aspect in our thinking, in our speech, attitude and actions. Positive creativity builds our inner happiness and joy. Your individual positive creativity can take infinite forms from helping others, the arts, physical sports, exercise, dance, to just being silent.

Consider this quote to reflect upon:

“We should not say we are alone. We are not. We should rise above it and say, ‘I have within me the Sword of Truth, my helmet is the Inspiration from above.”
