What’s Love Got to do with It?

Purple and White are Our Colors not our Heart

“Whenever we are inspired by beauty, we have taken a step towards Spiritual Vibrations.”

Eugene Fersen, Pearls of Wisdom, Volume 1, page 82.

When we see beauty in anything we are relating consciously to Love, for beauty is a quality of Love. Love elevates our level of consciousness and reality. We need love to refine ourselves.   

We can find beauty in the simplest things, like a pansy. The name pansy is derived from the French pensee meaning ‘thought.’ While the Middle English name, viola, comes from ‘remembrance.’ Which ever name you use they both  relate to the mind and consciousness.


Beauty brings Love to the forefront of our consciousness!

To love is natural

To Love is natural for us and we can feel it arise when we are silent within. As an observer we can become aware of Love rising from our heart and become engulfed in It. It is the Love of our Soul and natural Self.

But the ego can hold our attention in fearful thoughts and emotions. And these emotions are based in the the past. Sometimes ancient past. Like when startled we have a fearful knee jerk reaction, going into a defensive position.

As we relax and slowly release the knee jerk we can observe the way our body reacted from preprogrammed conditioning! The ego will want to get involved in analyzing, labeling, judging and discussion, while the Inner Being quietly observes. And then for me from observation comes amazement or appreciation! And that amazement turns to uplifting Love.

When we observe in a detached state, with no judgments, superstitions or beliefs, Mind is a path to Love. It’s our Superconscious Mind, our Inner Being that’s naturally United with Love and Source.

Quiet observation is a self discipline practice where we opt to align with our Inner Being, with Source rather than ego. It’s a space of no thinking, no labeling or judgement, rather an awareness in silence.

We are powerful Beings and have free will to choose our path. And choosing to align with that space in between thoughts is aligning with our Inner Being. It is choosing happiness. And happiness awakens us to our power to flow in the energies of Life.

We attract more uplifting energies, more happy situations, people and realities! We enjoy life and it is such an adventure!

And we find love close at hand.

Do You listen to yourself? Why listen to mental chatter, inspirations and reasoning: Listening – Part 2

gentle voice of intuition

We generally don’t listen to ourselves! Listening to ourselves is a big step towards owning and honoring our power to create our own reality – a happy one!

Our reality starts in our thinking. We currently function on three base levels of mind: the self-conscious; the sub-conscious ego; and the Superconscious, Higher Self. And, it pays to listen to all three levels.

How do we know the difference?

We like to think we are conscious during our waking hours. And, we are… sometimes. But because we are human and busy…., we can get lazy, confused and jump in the energy of the subconscious ego; into conditioning, desire, and impulse. It has no reasoning power, and is very fertile ground, so when a thought or suggestion enters it can grow unnoticed! 

We live in the past, rethinking it over and over – what happened and how we may have done it differently. We experience guilt, depression, loneliness. We live in the future, constantly worrying about what we are going to do next, and experience impatience, anxiety, fear.

We are so used to the mental voice of the subconscious ego that it sounds normal to us. But, there are hints; our emotions can lead us back to the reason and the level of mind they originated. The ego is impatient and demanding. So if we feel jittery, hurried, pushed, impulsive, or confused then our thoughts are coming from the ego. The ego is also self-centered. So if we feel tired, jealous, guilty, lonely, left out, in any way take things personal then our thoughts are coming from the ego.  

Conscious  –  Our conscious self is the controller of our life!
The conscious self is the listener, the observer, the discriminator. It can listen to reason, to the ego and to the Higher Self and discriminate between them. Plus, it is the gate-keeper to the subconscious and can control what goes into the subconscious to grow. So your consciousness is your great asset!  

When we are conscious, we are observant, aware, rational. We don’t assume and are willing to learn; curious. We question things and our self, analyze and can discipline to not take things personal which can blur our judgment! The inner voice is self-conscious of our being; aware of our will-power and individual power to discriminate and choose. So if we feel sincere, honest, true, have a sense of wonder or a sense of humor then our thoughts are coming from the self-conscious. We are conscious of love, the feeling of inclusive, unconditional love, of caring, consideration and goodwill.

Your Higher Self speaks to you through intuition, inspiration and even instinct. Our Higher Self does not urge us to do anything. Nor does it impose – we have to be quiet within to consciously listen to that still voice. If not we can miss it! When we feel calm and collected, peaceful then the inner voice comes from our Superconscious. 

Our Higher Self can help us. And, it pays to listen because it is connected to Universal Mind, the all-knowing Cosmic Mind. The guidance is always wise and true, leading to positive effects.

We can develop our intuition through practice of being in the moment and asking for guidance. Expect an answer with a tender heart of gratitude, unconditional Love. Listen. Sometimes the answer comes immediately, sometimes at the most unusual times; time and space in the high mental planes do not exist as it does on the conscious level. 

Conscious Discrimination

If we are not conscious of our Higher Self or our voice of intuition, we are still in the flow of positive energy through our conscious discrimination, self-analysis and reasoning. You can ask FourSquare questions of yourself like: Is this feeling enthusiastic? Is this reasoning logical or impulsive, superstitious? Does it feel true, honest and sincere? Am I coming from a place of love or fear?  You are examining your emotions which empower your thoughts to physically manifest in your reality! 

Why Listen

It’s simple! Our reality is shaped by our mind and emotions, so we should be conscious of what we are thinking and our emotional motivations and intents. 

Listen to yourself. Be the watcher of the thinker, mindful in the moment. The more we are conscious, the more we can learn and work to refine our conscious energy and power of creativity, gradually raising our consciousness to Superconsciousness.

You’ve created this very moment for yourself!

That’s how powerful You are.

In the hope You find Love close at hand, PortiaSLB

“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.”

Eugene Fersen, Science of Being, page 200.

This May Sting!

busy bees smooth

Okay, you may not like this entry, or at least the ego may not. It can sting.

Most of us are dissatisfied with who we are or the way we are. We don’t trust ourselves, and even think we’re a terrible person at times. We’re also impatient in our dissatisfaction, but we’ve got our pride. We cannot change into something different, transcend this unwanted personality  until we get a good look at it. 

The personality is primarily created by the subconscious ego. We allow ourselves to be dominated by the ego which is self-serving, fearful and dualistic. We create a troubled reality because of it.

To regain control over our lives, our personality and create a more positive reality, we must be mindful and conscious in the moment – in a state of consciousness that we take responsibility for. But, the ego doesn’t want us to be conscious, mindful, or listen to our intuition and discriminate – it’s self-centered like that! We battle our conscience. It’s a vicious cycle. 

How Did We Get Here?

The subconscious is our storage box of memories, thoughts, desires, and habitual emotional traits like fear, doubt, worry, loneliness, shame, and resentment. We’ve been conditioned to follow its dictates. It is a major factor in shaping our personality, or parts thereof, that we are dissatisfied with. We identify ourselves with subconscious traits and emotionally empower them as behaviors! “I’m mad, I’m lonely, I’m ashamed.” 

The ego lacks discrimination and supports ignorance. After centuries of history repeating itself we should be able to see the truth in that. We don’t know ourselves. But, we must know ourselves in order to free ourselves of those parts that cause us pain and suffering.

Our personality, our reality, is something we created and agreed to. Fortunately, even from the darkness of the subconscious ego, it is our destiny to evolve and harmonize ourselves and become fully empowered. 

Conscious Intent in Action!

It is our deepest desire and hope to align our personality with our soul. As we courageously make a conscious intent and live the qualities of love like consideration, kindness and caring we bit by bit gain control of our life, transforming our personality. As we consciously release negative egotistic traits we integrate personality and soul, becoming beings of Light here on earth. We transform our reality. 

We may still experience pain, because we all suffer, but our inner happiness, peace and joy are not dependent on it. 

The ego dislikes such information, but I hope you got a smile out of it!

Simple Methods to Be Happier, Part 2

Any negativity we experience, like emotional outbursts or physical problems, is of our own creation. We created that negativity with the power of Universal Love and Mind, but perverted it – turned it upside down in our thinking and feelings (emotions) – thus we perceive it as negativity. When we let this perversion dominate our thinking, feelings and actions, it gets in the way of our happiness. Therefore we have to work at being happy.

Here are 3 more simple ways to be happier:

 moss moment

1. Live in the present moment

When we live in the present moment we are raising our consciousness to a higher mental level because we are releasing our grip on constant human thinking, or what some call monkey chatter. What most of us consider normal thinking is predominately lingering in the subconscious where we habitually think about the future or past, and it cycles round and round.

Have you ever gotten a song stuck in your head? Or incessantly think about an incident in the past and do instant replays trying to figure it out? Or a problem you’re trying to work out? Or make plans for the future in the next few minutes, in a day or longer, then go over (and over) them? That’s the habitual monkey chatter that keeps you so busy there’s no room for appreciation of the moment and your happiness.

You may ask, just how do I live in the present moment?

Participate in the present and give it your full attention; mentally pause and watch the material world you are in at the moment. Focuse your attention on your body and the surrounding area. Become aware of your breathing and sensation perceptions of sight, sound, taste, touch and smell. You are intently observing, being silent inside.

You can practice this in your normal daily routines like when you stir your coffee, or even this very moment. Expand your awareness. You will come to notice there is no monkey chatter! And, little by little, you will come to know that you are part of something greater than yourself as you get a glimpse of The Unlimited!

Also watch the thinker within yourself.

Observe yourself thinking from a calmer and more understanding place, a higher mental consciousness. It’s like you are outside of yourself and watching your thinking process. It is especially helpful because you will come to watch your discrimination process before you manifest a thought by speaking or acting. And, more importantly, you become conscious of your motivation.

As previously discussed in the last post, when we choose to be motivated by love rather than fear, we are happier. And with the help of the Great Principle, we come closer to Universal Mind and know it is only motivated by Universal Love!

2. Listen to your Higher Self.

We are in contact with our superconscious, or Higher Self, through intuition and inspiration. It is our inner guiding spirit and connection to Cosmic Mind which is one with Divine Love! Therefore, listen to that calm, peaceful voice of intuition especially when we are aware and in the moment, because it will guide us to do the right thing. The more we listen, do the right thing and are grateful, the more intuition we receive!

If we do the wrong thing then our conscience hurts. Yet, we can consciously exercise our power of what Lightbearers call FourSquare discrimination – which is balanced in enthusiasm, wisdom, truth and love.

When we do the right thing, the balanced, harmonious choice, we are creating conditions for our own happiness.

 3. Be compassionate.

Compassion is not only being empathetic for others and conditions, it also encompasses doing something to help improve the situation with a purpose motivated by Love. It is that feeling of compassion that brings our soul to the surface of our consciousness, because love takes us out of the self-centeredness we all experience.

When we do something to help others and they become happier, it also makes us and others happier. It spreads. Therefore, consider giving of yourself, your time and effort, to help others and make the world a better place by volunteering or doing something kind for someone else.

Help a friend, be a friend, tutor a child, make deliveries for Meals on Wheels, make donations to those in need, there are as many ways as you can think of.

Being conscious of being in the moment helps us relate to Universal Love in our heart and that Love motivates us to be kind and considerate – happiness all around!

Next week will be the final part of this series and we will list 3 more ways to boost your happiness, with the help of the Great Law. Until then, consider enacting some methods for a happier life and reflecting on this quote:

“We are so centered in our selves that we forget to be normal. We bury our own happiness. We should work out within ourselves, the qualities which will take us out of our present limitations. The moment the qualities are developed, in that moment the person will be lifted into something better.”

Releasing False Beliefs about Yourself, Part 4

If you feel aggravated while interacting with someone then a low-frequency ego trait was most likely activated. Yet, that uneasiness can be your great asset! 

Your emotions can lead you to realize the Wisdom and authentic Power of your Soul. When you become conscious of being tempted by a negative emotion or behavior it inferably is your Superconsciousness gently letting you know something is not in harmony with your soul! 

First things first!
When I feel some uneasiness during an interaction with someone, I use the FourSquare, as discussed in Part 3, to help me pinpoint the reason and name the trait or thought that was not in harmony with the qualities of my soul.

Once I consciously realize that I was tempted to engage in a harmful trait that is based in fear, I then will myself to relax mentally. This is important so I can focus on going further in my attitude adjustment! I then mentally step away from that adverse criticism and let it go. I let it pass me by. I turn it away; I throw it away; I blow it away! It is such a liberating and empowering feeling!

The next step is life changing – I mentally look up within to connect with a Higher Power – Universal Life Energy to help further harmonize and inspire me. I realize and make a declaration of Truth to align with love instead of fear with a statement like:

Header_with_Exercises_new“I am One with Universal Love and Universal Life Energy. I am conscious of being loving and being loved Now. I feel IT.”

This brings my awareness and gratitude into the moment before speaking or acting. I manifest that attitude adjustment in some physical manner. It may be something very simple, like a smile to a stranger or sincere listening and to what the other person is saying. It will be a choice that is motivated by love rather than fear.

You’ll know a change has taken place within yourself and so will the other person if they acknowledge it or not.

Temptations of the Ego
We experience detrimental emotions and traits because of choices we made in the past and choices we make now. Through the law of karma, the Law of Cause and Effect, we unconsciously create harmful conditions that become habitual by frequently engaging in thoughts of worry, impatience, anger, procrastination, or carelessness! 

The subconscious ego aims to dominate us with these temptations, and thus we come to believe the illusionary personality traits we engage in and claim them as our own. You may come to think that is who you are, including that you are a terrible person at times, not good enough, not lovable or loving. You are not your thoughts! 

Your Soul Mind Connection
You may be tempted by fear-based emotions, yet that feeling of something not being right is your Higher Self awakening you consciously to the illusion of the insecure ego. Your Higher Self or Superconscious is your connection to Universal Mind. You are tapping into Divine Mind when you listen to your intuition. Be grateful!

You have the Eternal supporting You and helping You unconditionally! Take the opportunity to release subconscious traits in the moment and choose to align with Love instead. In this way you will  bring out the qualities of your Soul in your life and empower yourself to attract more conditions for your happiness, and indeed the world!

You will come to know that You are a beautiful Soul and so very good at heart.

Once you are aware of being tempted to react to someone with prejudice, the next step is to name that harmful trait because you are in the process of recognizing it in order to release it, and choose Love instead.

I start my self-analysis with questions like: Am I being motivated by fear or Love?

If I am not so sure of the answer, then I refine my questions to help me discover if I am in sync with the four major characteristics of my soul. If one of those four qualities – energy, intelligence, truth and love, are not fully present then I know that I am not balanced and am motivated by fear, ignorance, or impatience.

The four major characteristics of our soul are the same qualities of the Eternal, what a Lightbearer calls the FourSquare:



  • Is this emotion I’m feeling enthusiastic, energetic, and high-frequency (calm and peaceful)?
  • Am I doing the right thing at the right time with a harmonious purpose?


  • Is my reasoning in this emotion logical, rational, wise and based in fact, or is it based on an assumption?
  • Am I conscious, reasoning and open to the inspiration of my superconscious, or am I listening to urges and desires of the subconscious? (Do I feel  calm, rational and considerate or rushed, anxious, and worried?)


  • Am I in harmony with the Universal Laws? Is my reasoning truthful, honest and sincere?
  • Am I feeling hurt by the truth?
  • Am I aligning with my inner strength and wisdom, or submitting to wrong?


  • Am I approaching the issue impersonally or is it all about self-righteousness? 
  • Am I taking responsibility for my actions and feelings or am I placing blame on someone else?
  • Am I mentally stepping away from anger, resentment and negative thoughts and choosing to align with unconditional love for myself and the other person(s)? 

If one quality or corner of the FourSquare is missing or corrupted then I know my reaction is out of balance and can cause me further temptations and problems! Thus, I do something about it – I change my mind!

With Light and Love, Portia SLB

Next time we’ll work on changing our mind and choose to align with love, with the help of the Eternal.

Until then consider this quote to reflect upon:

“If we would follow more our Higher Self, we would by and by not only make no mistakes, but we would unfold our FourSquare. The FourSquare comes from our Higher Self.  We have always had it, but we must realize it.”

Eugene Fersen, Advanced Teachings in Science of Being, p. 26
