IF WE LOOK DOWN AND CLEAR OUT THE MUD


In a small medieval town, people wearing bonnets, top hats and long, old-fashioned clothing were bustling about in the streets, busily greeting each other and moving on as quickly as possible to their destinations. They did not linger, and neither did they look down, as they took pride in their connections, wanting to be on good business terms with everyone, and so they were always wary, watching out for whoever might turn the corner and approach them next. The always had a pleasant greeting on their lips, waiting for the next oncoming acquaintance.

When they reached their houses or businesses, the first thing they did was take off their shoes, leaving them outside the door. These shoes were ENCRUSTED WITH MUD, but this mud did not actually ever touch the feet of the owners, as all shoes were positioned on top of stilts. The residents were very accustomed to walking in this cumbersome way. Many did not even ask themselves why this was so. If the residents had looked down onto the streets, they would have seen a river of mud and sewage.

During the night, those who had already seen the mud ran around the town, gathering up all the shoes outside all the doors. When the residents woke up the next morning, preparing to leave the house as usual, they found that their shoes were gone. Some people said to themselves BUSINESS AS USUAL, and left the house in slippers. They were delighted to be able to walk so fast on the pavements, but they were appalled when they sunk to their knees in grime and sewage when trying to cross a street. It was the first time that they had really been aware of it. In the end, everyone was forced to stay at home indefinitely and forced to consider a solution.

IF WE USE THE TOOL OF MEDITATION TO INCREASE POSITIVE VIBRATION


A group of people appeared who harboured the same intent to increase earth’s vibrational frequency. They sat on a hilltop around a camp fire and simultaneously went into meditative state, fixing their attention on the flames. The more energy they sent in that direction, the higher the flames grew. Each person sent their own particular energy to the flames which was visible as a single coloured beam of light – red or white or gold ….

After a while of intense concentration, the flames started to crackle loudly and spit baubles into the air. These were multicoloured, like spherical rainbows, and large birds appeared to carry them off in their beaks. These birds carried the baubles to places on earth where great distress reigned. These were dirty, colourless, depressed places where the inhabitants had lost all hope. Here they dropped the baubles, which burst as they hit the ground, to form beautiful pools of multi-coloured water.

Half of the population in these depressed areas was so suspicious and resigned and entrenched in their own lives and problems that they scarcely raised their head when they saw these pools. They practically ignored them, immediately dismissing them as a trap or a deceptive mirage. Some of the people passing by noticed these brilliant pools and – if their courage was great enough – they approached them and tested them with a finger. The moment they did so, a feeling of lightness and joy spread from their finger, up their arm, and into the rest of their body, and they were infused with a great optimism for the future.

The small children had no inhibitions; they screamed with delight and immediately jumped into the pools, splashing around with delight. This is caused more multi-coloured baubles to rise into the air, and again the birds arrived to carry these new baubles to yet more depressed and deprived areas of earth. This process, which had been initiated by the meditators on the hill, continued to spread until the whole surface of the earth was covered in brilliant multi-coloured light. It was unavoidable. It was no longer possible to hide in a dark corner, because dark corners no longer existed. It was no longer possible to retreat from the great wave of optimism, joy and enthusiasm. Those who continued to resist were removed by angels and relocated to places where they could continue to live in the way they personally chose to do so, in a degree of less intense light which was more suitable for their spiritual growth.

Re: The world will become peaceful, beautiful and abundant IF ....
Thank you, elegant walnut (GREAT NAME!)

Love is indeed the answer. And it is so simple. But for many on the planet, this statement that loving one's neighbour and all of DVINE CREATION seems like an impossible task, in face of all the destruction, corruption, violence etc. They can perhaps relate to loving those around them, in their families and circles of friends, but often it does not go beyond that. Love for the environment/our earth is increasing in some, but the majority do not take it any further. Loving enemies is also a difficult concept.

This is why I think it is important to try and spell out HOW TO LOVE, and what this actually means in our daily lives. Do we love and appreciate the wood or the stones or the tiles we walk on? Do we love the grass? Do we love the environment so much that we would never dream of allowing our baker to pack our buns in a plastic/paper bag? Does our love extend to other countries where war rages or where drought is continuous or where water is polluted? All these questions have the purpose of expanding our CIRCLE OF LOVE, and urge us to reflect upon that which is not yet included in this circle.

Thank you again for your statement.

Colour Crusader, thank you for your impressive supply of information.

Love is wonderful and very high energy. Unconditional love brings love closer to the level of the Prime Creator (aka God, Higher Self, Creative Source). While for many people unconditional love is almost impossible to implement, there are some who possess this attribute. These people, along with others, have a passion to raise the consciousness of this planet to bring in peace and harmony for humanity. Despite their unrelenting efforts and conviction to their passion lifetime after lifetime, sometimes to their demise, sadly the dark side of duality prevailed as history has shown most people have a fondness for greed and selfishness. It would be a great help to humanity if people were given a brief moment of re-connection to Prime Creator and experience unconditional love and immense benevolence, that wonderful warm feeling when greed and selfishness along with the stresses and burdens they bring dissipate. In the new energy since 2012, more percentage of newborns will possess higher DNA efficiency with more remembrance of their true divine self, in other words more connected. They will be more resistant to the traps of this 3d low consciousness world. That and together with the magnetic grid shift which allows greater entry of cosmic benevolent energy will greatly help move this planet and its inhabitants faster to potentially higher consciousness. There will then be greater potential for peace and harmony on Earth, and when that day of success come, albeit it's a long process, those who have worked hard for the good of humanity will rejoice. Humanity will look back to these days as the barbaric age and going forward will not want to slip back to these terrible times again.

This world is indeed a very interesting place. Many souls from all over the universe come in for different purposes - some for nostalgia, some for learning, some for the experience, some to play a part, and some for helping. It matters not if this world is a matrix because our focus of attention is here. Ultimately, we are willing participants to the test of dark and light energies being conducted on this kindergarten playground called Earth. Maximum duality and maximum free choice allow us to learn what we want and what we don't want for us to evolve. Hopefully this will bring some comfort to those who say they are suffering and are angry and frustrated "God" is not helping them. Everything happens for a purpose. Find that purpose when they hit a bump on the road of life and give themselves a big congratulation when they realize the purpose. As their mindset slowly change they might start to be grateful for the lesson, which would not have been possible if they were not pushed to a place they would not have gone to otherwise. How great it is to be grateful rather than to be angry and frustrated. Congratulations to them again as they have just help raise the collective consciousness of this planet.

Colour Crusader, thanks again for sharing your information. From the amount of time you have invested in your posts, I know you did it out of passion! All the best.

Re: The world will become peaceful, beautiful and abundant IF ....
Thank you for you long an detailed post dear AC! Lots of pertinent information there too.

Increasing love means increasing our similarity to SOURCE or GOD or DIVINE CREATION or whatever word you feel most familiar with. We are on a journey of self-perfection, ever striving to be more and more like the SOURCE OF LOVE.

You say it would be a great help if people were allowed a brief "reconnection" to Source/Creator in order to feel the difference and accelerate the process. I believe this is given as needed. I know people who have had "God experiences" and who have never been the same afterwards. They are filled with optimism, even in the darkest of circumstances. The same can be said for those who have had "near death" experiences". They know that death is not the end. They know that life continues and that it is an ongoing learning process. Generally, if one asks, one receives - not that which may appear to be the best for oneself, but that which is best for the learning process.

The inhabitants on earth are presently in dire need of the "reconnection" you refer to, as this would make violence, corruption and abuse night impossible. But there is - in most people - no desire to connect. I reckon one last chance will be given - to jump start the awakening process - but if one fails that test, then it is time to move on to a "classroom" where the lessons are easier and more basic. Earth cannot deal with billions of souls who are without conscience. Add to the mix that 80 million babies are born every year. The population growth curve is now extremely steep. This can only result in devastation, exploitation of earth's resources and mass destruction.

Yes, everything happens for a purpose - and the purpose is moving forward on the path of learning. With this recognition, we are forced to review our lives and see WHERE WE PARTICIPATED IN ALL THINGS POSITIVE AND NEGATIVE. IT MEANS THAT WE CAN NEVER ABDICATE RESPONSIBILITY, AND THAT WE CAN NEVER BE A VICTIM. AT THE SAME TIME, IT SHOWS THAT WE ARE IN CONTROL OF OUR LIVES AND THAT WE CAN CREATE OUR FUTURE.

Thank you again, AC, for our wise words. Momentous times are upon us.

The cosmic benevolent energy you refer to is actually benevolent. However, it does show up everything which is not in alignment with it, thus exposing everything negative, which is its turn causes consternation and conflict. It is a force for good, causing chaos on the way.

Thank you again for your statement.

IF WE REALISE WE ARE ALL PIECES OF A JIGSAW PUZZLE ORGANISED BY THE DIVINE


The hands belonging to a huge celestial being emptied a box of puzzle pieces (WHICH ALL CAME FROM THE SAME SOURCE) onto a table. The pieces scattered far and wide. Some were face up. Others were face down. The celestial hands ensured that all the pieces were face up. They were counted, and none was found missing, so the celestial being departed in the confident knowledge that he had initiated the process, and that all pieces were perfect. He knew that each piece was unique and essential to the whole. And he knew that it was simply a case of rearrangement until the full picture came into view.

We were the pieces, and through our inner and outer movements and decisions, we would find our perfect position and contribute to a harmonious and completed picture. The pieces wandered around on the table, as we wander through life, looking for a sign that they were going in the right direction. Sometimes a flash of colour or an attractive shape would compass their direction. When pieces of the same colour or pattern met as a group there was great excitement, as they knew that they belonged together somehow. And so, all pieces were on their own searching journey.

Sometimes the celestial being would come back to observe progress. If he saw a piece wandering off by itself, or approaching danger (the edge of the table), he would turn it around, to give it a new perspective. In very difficult cases, he would actually pluck the piece from the table and position it exactly where it was supposed to be. This was a shock for the piece, but necessary. If the celestial being saw a piece which was very sad and which had given in to despair, and which was no longer searching, then he would send a “neighbouring” piece in that direction to console and inspire. Much joy arose when two pieces found that they fitted together perfectly in both shape and colour. Then they interlocked, as jigsaw pieces do, and continued their search for more interlocking parts.

This process of looking for those of similar mind and intention, recognising others and joining forces, was approved of by the watching celestial eyes. Some pieces, however, did not take part at all. They became more and more isolated (as others moved away), but however long this took, the celestial being repeatedly pushed them gently but firmly in new directions.

In the end, only one piece was missing for the completion of the picture. The missing piece did not actually need to search for his particular position as it was all too clear. After refusing to participate for so long, it was very difficult for this piece to surrender to the will of the celestial being and join his fellows, but he had to swallow his pride and do so.

Conclusion: everyone involved with the effort to UPLIFT OUR EARTH AT THIS TIME IS A UNIQUE AND ESSENTIAL PART OF THE SUPPORTING STRUCTURE, AND THAT WE MUST COME INTO THE KNOWING OF OUR CORRECT POSITION AND OUR GREAT INDIVIDUAL AND COLLECTIVE RESPONSIBILITY.

Unseen celestial hands will guide us in the right direction if we appear to be lost. The full picture can only be realised and seen when all pieces are present and perfectly matched.

IF WE GROW LIKE SEEDS


Imagine you are curled up like an embryo inside a nut with a very hard casing. You understand that GROWING is preceded by a period of abstinence, stillness or restriction, FROM WHICH TO GROW. Yet you also harbour a feeling of limitless expansion in the knowledge of being ONE with all, feeling the hard perimeters of the nut on every surface of your body. There is an enormous feeling of security in that tightness and darkness as a seed. You know that someone – the HIM/HER CREATOR OF THE UNIVERSE is covering your back always.

Understand that the next step towards optimal growth is your DECISION to birth yourself, separating yourself temporarily from the ONE. You start to move. You arouse yourself from sleep and are overcome with CURIOSITY. When you knock against the familiar wall of the nut casing, it sounds hollow, and you know without a doubt that there is something BEYOND it. Your DETERMINATION to find impels you to push relentlessly until the seedling finally cracks its shell and pokes its tender green head into the soil.

Now you are in a completely different environment. Every pore is clogged with soil. You rely on instinct to find your way, stretching your head upwards because the ground above you feels warmer. COURAGE is needed to leave your old surroundings in search of the new. The desire to grow upwards comes from somewhere deep within you: you grow in alignment with a divine blueprint which you do not yet understand in full, but which you learn to trust.

All this brings you towards the surface of the soil where you suddenly burst into the sunlight. You are overcome with ecstasy at this unknown brightness, warmth and expanse which nurtures you, together with the rain. You accept these gifts fully and gratefully, growing rapidly. You wonder if I you will eventually be able to touch the sky. But somehow, the idea of eternal self-perpetuation and growth in one direction only is not appealing, so you begin to spread your branches sideways also.

Thus, you can survey what is happening on the ground. Small children play beneath your branches. When you see that they loved to climb, you grow in a way which enables them to do that, and when you see they are hungry, you are seized with COMPASSION and you realise that you have the potential to create fruit for their consumption.

When the children see peaches ripening on your branches, it seems like a miracle, and so they are inspired – in their turn - to set out on their life journeys, creating gifts for others through the same chain of growth, through DECISIONS TO SEPARATE FROM THE FAMILIAR, through CURIOSITY, COURAGE, DETERMINATION and COMPASSION. Thus they discover their own unique brand of service to humanity.

IF WE DARE TO ENTER THE LIGHT


Once upon a time, there was a very deep ocean floor. It was so deep, in fact, that no light shed through. One very large fish appeared. Like all fish at this depth, it was luminous and looked rather ghostly and aggressive. Then a smaller fish appeared. Both fish looked each other in the eye and bared their teeth, expecting a fight, preparing to defend themselves. The fish swam around each other tentatively, and then the smaller fish eventually retreated, feeling fear but not showing it, retiring to the depths of the ocean.

The smaller fish spent a lot of time hiding in holes between the coral. Whenever he ventured into the open, he kept a sharp lookout for other fish who were his predators. But he was happiest hiding, as it was a great strain to have to remain aware all the time. And as all fish at that depth were luminous, the fish learnt to associate light with danger.

One day the fish looked out of his hole to see a vertical beam of light which landed in a circle on the ocean floor. It appeared to be never-ending, stretching ever upwards through the water. Initially, the fish was afraid and suspicious. It had never seen such a strong light before, but eventually it overcame its fright and ventured out due to curiosity, and by the fact that his life in the hole was pretty boring.

The fish carefully swam up to the beam of light to investigate. The nearer it got, the warmer he felt, and this was a sort of pleasant warmth which made him feel happy. Still, there was a part of him which thought THIS MAY BE A TRICK. In the end, his curiosity got the better of him, and he stuck his nose into the light beam, anticipating a shock of some sort, but instead, the fish felt a surge of energy.

Thus the fish discovered that the light was not a unpleasant material creature shining but that it was something ethereal and transparent. The fish was still a little worried, swimming in and out of the light to test it out. When all his fear was lost, and in a final SUPREME MOMENT OF RELEASE AND SURRENDER, the fish entered the beam and swam upwards, vertically, constantly showered with light, until he reached the very surface of the ocean. At that point the fish leapt into the sunlight which was much more radiant and brighter than his wildest imaginings.

The world will become peaceful, beautiful and abundant
IF WE BECOME A WATCHER OF THE WORLD


Imagine you are sitting alone at the edge of a lake, wearing robes of white which sparkle with glints of silver. You are intensely aware of everything around you. You sit there through all the seasons, watching the shades of vegetation, sky and water change, while the contours remain largely the same. Sometimes the surface of the lake is roughly textured, and at other times it is as still as glass, and then you can see a clump of white water lilies floating in the centre.

Your hearing is acute. In autumn, you hear the fall of every dry and crackling leaf. In winter, you hear the pieces of melting broken ice chiming like small bells as they hit the shoreline. In spring, you note the tiny scurrying feet of waking animals in search for food. In summer, you watch I the white lilies, sending them your love and energy, and you listen to the wind which carris the sound of flutes and drums from a nearby village whenever celebrations are taking place.

The reason for sitting so still during these passing seasons is very clear to you: you know that EVERY MOVE YOU MAKE CAN BE FELT BY SOMEONE ELSE. Whenever you think of a place or person, a silver thread immediately emerges from your forehead and travels to that person, attaching itself to them. Your fingers are attached by silver threads to everything you have ever touched. And so, you sit there in total stillness, for your movement causes more movement, and reaction and noise, and instead you concentrate on the MOVEMENT WITHIN.

You are suddenly inspired with the thought that you should select a stone, half white and half black, and throw it into the lake. It takes a very long time to select the right stone, weighing and turning each one slowly in your hand to check their smooth surfaces for flaws. Some were white marble stones divided by veins of black. Some were jet black stones patched with white. When you have found the perfect stone, balanced in shape and colour, you bless it and said MAY MY ACTION CAUSE THE HEAVENS TO OPEN FOR THOSE EYES WHICH DO NOT SEE. Then you throw it into the lake one calm Summer’s day when the water is as motionless as a mirror.

As the stone falls, ripples emanate from the place of its falling, and just as you are connected by threads to everything you have touched, you are also connected to all movement you have caused. You watch and felt the ripples gathering momentum as you follow them with my eyes, as if the ripples are your fingertips stretching into unknown realms. When they reach the middle of the lake where the white water lilies grow, the force was so great that the lilies are swept away. As the water carries the lilies on towards the shore, you feel the absolute purity of the flowers resonating in your heart.

Small children playing on the shores of the lake look up in wonder to see the white flowers at the water’s edge. Unconsciously, their own purity resonates with the purity of the flowers, and so they are automatically drawn towards them. The children gather them joyfully in their arms and bring them home to their parents. In the darkness of those small simple homes, the flowers emit a sort of ethereal light, acting as a lamp which illuminates the shadows. It is discovered that if a white flower is placed near an ailing person, the patient will recover. And so the flowers are greatly desired and highly prized. Many flowers are jealously guarded until they eventually wither and die. Some are preserved as holy relics, but they have lost their power.

There are some people, however, who do not keep the flowers for themselves alone. They feel that this wonder should be shared, so secretly they take the flowers to troubled lands where darkness reigns. Some distribute them petal by petal to poor beggar children. Some decide to plant of the flowers into the ground in a secret and secluded place. They sit round it in a circle, sending all their love and energy towards the flower so that it might take root and grow. Then they build a wall around the plant so that it might not be discovered. Later the wall is torn down by marauders, but the bush does not die completely, and a woman secretly takes a flower from the bush and plants it in a distant forest. Here she sits and watches until it takes root. Here it flourishes in seclusion until one day, a tree of white flowers pokes it head high above the horizon of trees.

All this YOU CAN SEE as you sit timelessly and motionlessly at the lakeside, growing older and weaker. The flowers have travelled in a complete circle round the globe. The tree with the white flowers is growing in the forest behind you. You cannot see it with your physical eyes, but I you can feel the connection to it through the silver thread. In the background, I can again hear the sound of musical instruments in a village celebration. When they suddenly stop, you know that the villagers have noticed the new white tree and are walking towards it with wonder. They have heard many old stories about these healing flowers, and they see that a silver thread runs from the tree across the forest floor, across the meadows, towards the lakeside where you sit.

The villagers are astonished to discover you there, with silver cords stretching from your body in all directions. They think you are some sort of god or goddess and they begin to cry and bow down, but you motion to them to stop and tell them that they can also generate healing and high levels or awareness if they look upwards.

IF WE USE THE TOOL OF MEDITATION TO INCREASE POSITIVE VIBRATION


A group of people appeared who harboured the same intent to increase earth’s vibrational frequency. They sat on a hilltop around a camp fire and simultaneously went into meditative state, fixing their attention on the flames. The more energy they sent in that direction, the higher the flames grew. Each person sent their own particular energy to the flames which was visible as a single coloured beam of light – red or white or gold ….

After a while of intense concentration, the flames started to crackle loudly and spit baubles into the air. These were multicoloured, like spherical rainbows, and large birds appeared to carry them off in their beaks. These birds carried the baubles to places on earth where great distress reigned. These were dirty, colourless, depressed places where the inhabitants had lost all hope. Here they dropped the baubles, which burst as they hit the ground, to form beautiful pools of multi-coloured water.

Half of the population in these depressed areas was so suspicious and resigned and entrenched in their own lives and problems that they scarcely raised their head when they saw these pools. They practically ignored them, immediately dismissing them as a trap or a deceptive mirage. Some of the people passing by noticed these brilliant pools and – if their courage was great enough – they approached them and tested them with a finger. The moment they did so, a feeling of lightness and joy spread from their finger, up their arm, and into the rest of their body, and they were infused with a great optimism for the future.

The small children had no inhibitions; they screamed with delight and immediately jumped into the pools, splashing around with delight. This is caused more multi-coloured baubles to rise into the air, and again the birds arrived to carry these new baubles to yet more depressed and deprived areas of earth. This process, which had been initiated by the meditators on the hill, continued to spread until the whole surface of the earth was covered in brilliant multi-coloured light. It was unavoidable. It was no longer possible to hide in a dark corner, because dark corners no longer existed. It was no longer possible to retreat from the great wave of optimism, joy and enthusiasm. Those who continued to resist were removed by angels and relocated to places where they could continue to live in the way they personally chose to do so, in a degree of less intense light which was more suitable for their spiritual growth.

The world will become peaceful, beautiful and abundant
IF WE BECOME A WATCHER OF THE WORLD


Imagine you are sitting alone at the edge of a lake, wearing robes of white which sparkle with glints of silver. You are intensely aware of everything around you. You sit there through all the seasons, watching the shades of vegetation, sky and water change, while the contours remain largely the same. Sometimes the surface of the lake is roughly textured, and at other times it is as still as glass, and then you can see a clump of white water lilies floating in the centre.

Your hearing is acute. In autumn, you hear the fall of every dry and crackling leaf. In winter, you hear the pieces of melting broken ice chiming like small bells as they hit the shoreline. In spring, you note the tiny scurrying feet of waking animals in search for food. In summer, you watch I the white lilies, sending them your love and energy, and you listen to the wind which carris the sound of flutes and drums from a nearby village whenever celebrations are taking place.

The reason for sitting so still during these passing seasons is very clear to you: you know that EVERY MOVE YOU MAKE CAN BE FELT BY SOMEONE ELSE. Whenever you think of a place or person, a silver thread immediately emerges from your forehead and travels to that person, attaching itself to them. Your fingers are attached by silver threads to everything you have ever touched. And so, you sit there in total stillness, for your movement causes more movement, and reaction and noise, and instead you concentrate on the MOVEMENT WITHIN.

You are suddenly inspired with the thought that you should select a stone, half white and half black, and throw it into the lake. It takes a very long time to select the right stone, weighing and turning each one slowly in your hand to check their smooth surfaces for flaws. Some were white marble stones divided by veins of black. Some were jet black stones patched with white. When you have found the perfect stone, balanced in shape and colour, you bless it and said MAY MY ACTION CAUSE THE HEAVENS TO OPEN FOR THOSE EYES WHICH DO NOT SEE. Then you throw it into the lake one calm Summer’s day when the water is as motionless as a mirror.

As the stone falls, ripples emanate from the place of its falling, and just as you are connected by threads to everything you have touched, you are also connected to all movement you have caused. You watch and felt the ripples gathering momentum as you follow them with my eyes, as if the ripples are your fingertips stretching into unknown realms. When they reach the middle of the lake where the white water lilies grow, the force was so great that the lilies are swept away. As the water carries the lilies on towards the shore, you feel the absolute purity of the flowers resonating in your heart.

Small children playing on the shores of the lake look up in wonder to see the white flowers at the water’s edge. Unconsciously, their own purity resonates with the purity of the flowers, and so they are automatically drawn towards them. The children gather them joyfully in their arms and bring them home to their parents. In the darkness of those small simple homes, the flowers emit a sort of ethereal light, acting as a lamp which illuminates the shadows. It is discovered that if a white flower is placed near an ailing person, the patient will recover. And so the flowers are greatly desired and highly prized. Many flowers are jealously guarded until they eventually wither and die. Some are preserved as holy relics, but they have lost their power.

There are some people, however, who do not keep the flowers for themselves alone. They feel that this wonder should be shared, so secretly they take the flowers to troubled lands where darkness reigns. Some distribute them petal by petal to poor beggar children. Some decide to plant of the flowers into the ground in a secret and secluded place. They sit round it in a circle, sending all their love and energy towards the flower so that it might take root and grow. Then they build a wall around the plant so that it might not be discovered. Later the wall is torn down by marauders, but the bush does not die completely, and a woman secretly takes a flower from the bush and plants it in a distant forest. Here she sits and watches until it takes root. Here it flourishes in seclusion until one day, a tree of white flowers pokes it head high above the horizon of trees.

All this YOU CAN SEE as you sit timelessly and motionlessly at the lakeside, growing older and weaker. The flowers have travelled in a complete circle round the globe. The tree with the white flowers is growing in the forest behind you. You cannot see it with your physical eyes, but I you can feel the connection to it through the silver thread. In the background, I can again hear the sound of musical instruments in a village celebration. When they suddenly stop, you know that the villagers have noticed the new white tree and are walking towards it with wonder. They have heard many old stories about these healing flowers, and they see that a silver thread runs from the tree across the forest floor, across the meadows, towards the lakeside where you sit.

The villagers are astonished to discover you there, with silver cords stretching from your body in all directions. They think you are some sort of god or goddess and they begin to cry and bow down, but you motion to them to stop and tell them that they can also generate healing and high levels or awareness if they look upwards. When they do this, they see the FIRST SILVER THREAD OF ALL – THEIR CELESTIAL CONNECTION TO THE DIVINE CREATOR. You tell them they could invite this thread into their lives, if they so desire. Some accept this offer with great joy and take up sitting positions on the edge of the lake, seemingly motionless but slowly growing inwardly and turning into a WATCHER OF THE WORLD, aware of every thought and movement, and the consequences thereof.

Hello AC 78055063, and thank you for your comment. It is your personal experience, perhaps, which impels you to state this point of view. And as such, it is valid. However, our viewpoints are always necessarily limited if we are not on a learning path which provides us with ever-increasing perspectives ....

What is being discussed here is not "utopian dreams", but concrete - step for step instructions on how to change the present paradigm. The last few posts I have made are more of the visionary kind - which you may classify as "utopian" if you do not subscribe to the idea that visions are the seed of our future creations - but the rest of my posts deal with concrete day-today living, and how our personal choices (whatever race or religion we may belong to) can take effect.

I note that many threads on GLP deal with investigation into various topics in order to expose the truth, and sadly this is very much needed at this time. I also note that there are threads which purely serve as "entertainment", and though humor is essential, several of these fall into areas which do not uplift the world into something better. They do not serve as inspiration or their participants as role models. In the face of widespread corruption, abuse, disinformation and deliberate violence and ugliness, what proposals can we make? This is an invitation to complete the sentence with all seriousness, keeping the fate of all humanity in view. smile_hearFor example:


The world will become peaceful, beautiful and abundant

IF WE CONSTANTLY REMEMBER THE GOLDEN RULE THAT WE REAP WHAT WE SOW.

This means that everything around us - whether large or small, beautiful or ugly, violent or otherwise, HAS SOMETHING TO DO WITH OURSELVES. Our behaviour is the seed, and what we see around us are the fruits. The tendency to turn away and say THAT HAS NOTHING WHATSOEVER TO DO WITH ME is erroneous. Such an attitude in itself is a violent act in that we are disassociating ourselves from our fellow human beings and leaving them to their "fate", when actually our every thought and action - which are immeasurably powerful - are able to make a difference.

Re: The world will become peaceful, beautiful and abundant IF ....
Those who wish to destroy this world will be rejoicing at your statement, AC. No man/woman is an island. We are all part of ONE MIND, and we are all on the SAME PLANET, and even our smallest action or thought is RECORDED and INFLUENCES EVERYTHING ELSE. Many negative thoughts clump together and MANIFEST IN OUR PHYSICAL REALITY. And if we just sit back, resign ourselves and "mind our own business", then we CHOOSE TO ALLOW NEGATIVITY, WAR, CORRUPTION AND ABUSE to continue. Is this what you want?

The world will become peaceful, beautiful and abundant
IF WE LOOK UP TO THE SKIES AND FLY AS THE PHOENIX


It was night, and a group of people walked slowly and steadily through a dark thick forest until they arrived at a clearing. They did not really look at each other or talk to each other much, and their faces were mostly obscured by hoods, but they were nevertheless very intensely aware of each other and of the fact that they were gathered here for a very specific and special purpose.

On reaching the clearing they searched for firewood and piled everything they could find in the middle to form a pyre. Then they sat in a circle in deep meditation, connecting themselves to the very bright light above – which symbolised the LOVING SOURCE OF ALL CREATION. Inspired and strengthened by this energy, they concentrated on the branches in front of them, with the firm intention of assisting their home, the earth, in any way possible.

Suddenly, flames ignited, the wood started to burn, and a beautiful blue phoenix – symbolising the earth – rose high into the air. The meditators were amazed, and some thought that this was the end of their work, but they were inspired to continue, and one by one, more phoenixes were born of the fire, each representing an aspect of renewal in our society. Finally, the whole sky was completely transformed. Instead of the dark starry sky, it had now turned a translucent blue. Thousands of phoenixes had bonded together to form a seamless, rippling and shimmering cloud which obscured all else.

The blue cloud began to travel away from the forest, and stretched until it was even more blue and transluscent, so that it covered the whole earth. There were two reactions to this. Some people noticed a different shade of light falling, and turned their faces to the sky. They were seized by a sense of wonder, as they recognised that this blue cloud was not “natural” in origin, but a spiritual phenomenon with a special message. These people stopped what they were doing, paused and reflected, and walked very, very slowly, as if discovering new ground with every step, almost like feeling their way into new worlds of feeling and experience.

The second reaction to the blue cloud was non-reaction. Those who walked quickly through their lives, from one building to the next, in rapid succession, deeply involved in their own thoughts, or in conversation with others, simply did not notice. They were generally removed from natural surroundings and rarely surveyed it or noticed changes.

The more the first, inquisitive people looked into the sky, trying to see what was going on, the more they could see the individual birds in formation, and indeed the birds started to move away from each other to show the onlookers that yes, indeed, they were not deceiving themselves. All those attracted to this phenomenon, and whose curiosity encouraged the birds to show themselves, were pulled towards one half of the globe. On the other half of the globe, the fast-running very occupied populace continued to talk and run. Here, nothing encouraged the birds to show themselves, and they remained as a blanket of blue.

A deafening thunder rent the air, and lightning struck the ground, causing the land to split and water from the oceans to rush into this huge and ever-increasing divide, thus separating the two consciousnesses. Those who looked up rejoiced to see the birds coming down. Those who did not look up were wrapped up en masse by the huge blue cloud and were removed from the face of the earth.

IF WE STOP EXPLAINING THE SHADOWS AWAY


A man sits in the same office every day, and he knows NOTHING ELSE. His office building is surrounded by other buildings so that he can never see a horizon. As he carries out his daily work, writing notes diligently, he notices that the colour of the paper changes from grey to white and then to grey again. He explains this to himself in various ways. Sometimes he says MY EYES ARE WEARY in the morning and in the evening, and therefore the paper is clearer in the middle of the day. Or he says: more electricity is used in the mornings and evenings, and so there is less power in the lamps at midday. And on others days, the man simply did not think at all – he just put it down to something INEXPLICABLE.

One day, a woman enters the man’s office, smiles and says LET’S GO OUTSIDE! The man is so perplexed that he lets himself be led by the hand. She guides him up many flights of steps to the roof of the building. Here, for the first time in his life, he feels the fresh air on his skin, and for the first time, he sees THE SUN RISING AND SETTING. This puts all his previous experiences in a completely new light, showing him very clearly HOW LIMITED WAS HIS TRAIN OF THOUGHT.

Hey CC, just catching up on the thread after
being busy a while "clearing my space."
I came across an old college notebook left by
my late cousin Jane who stayed with us while
attending the University during Fall '71.

I didn't know whose it was until I saw a page
with a letter she wrote to a boy from back home,
giving directions to their house. She was catching
a Greyhound bus and would be home the next day.
She signed her name but then wrote a big 'X'
through it. I called her younger brother to tell
him what I found, and he said they moved from that
house that winter. It was next to the church where
their dad preached and mother (my mother's sister)
played piano. I was looking at it on Google Map.
Our family gets together for Thanksgiving at his cabin
in the mountains and I told him I will bring it,
48 years after it was written.

A few pages further, on pink paper, she wrote this:
"To write a good love letter, you ought to begin
without knowing what you mean to say, and to finish
without knowing what you have written."


On the same sheet was this:
"Love is a folly of the mind,
an unquenchable fire,
a hunger without surfeit,
an agreeable, a sweet delight,
a pleasing madness,
a labor without repose
and a repose without labor."


I assume that's Thoreau since the other
pink pages are a thesis outline on him.
I had just turned 10 at the time and was
crazy about a girl that lived at the bottom
of the hill. She kinda looked like cousin Jane
now that I think about it.

Hi Hillbilly! Nice to see you on the thread again! What wonderful thoughts you have shared with us, quoted by cousin Jane (highlighted in red below). The first quote shows how INTUITIVE love should be - no calculation or presence involved. And love being a "labour without repose" and simultaneously a "repose without labour" emphasizes the unconditional service which love inspires. Thank you so much.

The world will become peaceful, beautiful and abundant
IF WE TRAVEL ON UNDAUNTED, NOTING SIGNS ALONG THE WAY


A long procession of people in long dark brown hooded robes was journeying on foot over the floor of a very narrow valley with steep sides. The people knew that this journey would end soon, in fact there was no way out of this enclosed valley as it came to an abrupt end at a sheer face of rock, over which poured a high waterfall.

Along the way, riders on white horses offered their services to the wanderers, offering them rides, saying to them that this would help them reach their destination earlier, but most of the wanderers were steadfast, knowing in their hearts that every step was important and that short-cuts also cut short the learning process. Thus they learnt to walk and live and camp together.

Their hope of actually reaching a “destination” was sometimes very low. On such occasions, some of them complained and displayed impatience, while others remained silent and sought stillness, listening out for the strange and sporadic creaking sound which originated somewhere in the distance, and which echoed softly round the valley. This sound gave them comfort, for it suggested that there was SO MUCH MORE TAKING PLACE THAN THAT WHICH THEY PRESENTLY PERCEIVED FROM THEIR LIMITIED POINT OF VISION.

Others were inspired to DIG DEEPER INTERNALLY AND EXTERNALLY. When they dug into the ground, they discovered nuggets of pure gold beneath the soil. These could not be removed, however. They were somehow fixed. And through this, the wanderers were reminded of the TREASURES UNSEEN AND IMMOVEABLE, YET TO BE REVEALED, BUT ALWAYS IN EXISTENCE BENEATH THE SHROUD OR DARKNESS.

When the travellers reached the end of the valley, they were forced to stop and set up camp. The water from the waterfall was their only sustenance. Those with enough strength and stamina and curiosity and who still had enough energy to climb on, discovered a very steep and narrow path cut into the rock. It led upwards, winding on and on to the top of the waterfall.

On reaching the top, the resilient wanderers discovered a large lush plateau of fields surrounding a large lake. Food was abundant. The meadows were populated by smiling dancing people who welcomed them, and who directed them towards a huge tree. This tree was hundreds of years old, with a startlingly thick trunk, but its most astonishing feature was that it was made of solid gold. It was then that the adventurous wanderers recognised this tree as the MOTHER who had birthed the gold nuggets which had inspired them during their journey through the valley. These were not actually nuggets, but golden roots. THE ROOTS HAD GROWN FROM THE SOURCE THROUGH THE THICKEST OF ROCK AND THE THINEST OF SOIL. This phenomenon could not be seen from a bird’s eye view, nor understood from logical reasoning. The connection was made through an intuitive internal knowing.

A huge swing was attached to one of the tree’s branches. An angel sat on the swing, and as it moved to and fro, the wanderers recognised the creaking of the branches. Seeing the travellers arrive, the angel jumped off the swing and welcomed them saying NOW THERE IS NO NEED TO TRANSPORT TO YOUR EARS THE SOUND OF OUR DIVINE MOVEMENTS, BECAUSE NOW YOU CAN SEE THE SOURCE WHICH CREATES THE MOTION AND THE SOUND.

The travellers were overcome that they had reached the end of their journey, though they understood that this was also the beginning and that THEY THEMSELVES WOULD NOW MAKE THEMSELVES HEARD, GIVING CLUES AND INSPIRATION TO OTHERS SO THAT THEY WOULD SIMILARLY FOLLOW THE CLUES TO FIND THE SOURCE – a place of perfect shelter, calm and love.

Hello AC 76657131. What is death for you? Peace? Somewhere where you rest in peace (RIP) for ever and ever? Most references to reincarnation have been taken out of the Bible. In some religions, it is part of their belief. If you talk to people who have had NDEs, it is clear that this actually has no connection to any particular religion or path; IT IS THE SAME FOR EVERYONE, if the soul (temporarily wearing a human suit on this earth) wishes to continue and continue to learn, it will.

hey AC 76657131: who are you? I don't know you, let alone for a "decade". What have your comments got to do with this parable? What group? What ambition? What can't you do? What do you think I am asking you to do? We have no personal connections. No idea who you are or what your issues are. Whatever they are, they are for you to solve. Your choices will make a difference.

What I have learned is that you possess no ethics with what you are willing to do to a person in order to survive as a group. The indications of what you are going to do to me if I submit to you are clear enough by inference. The answer is no, and it was no when I suspected as much from you nearly a decade ago. If people like you won't learn that what you do is evil, then you need to suffer proportionately to the ambition of your goals for others. This isn't about the system, it is about your moral nature as a group. Your cloying and mawkish sentiments cloak something unacceptable, and it isn't mental weakness to accept death when you make it so that there is no other choice. I'm sorry if you think you are a good person with noble goals. I can't do this, especially not for people like you.

The world will become peaceful, beautiful and abundant
IF WE FOCUS ON THE CYCLE OF BIRTH


On a very cold day, the sun decided to speak to the inhabitants of earth about BIRTH.

“From my perspective, I see all and I nurture all. While I am conscious of what you call “death”, I am simultaneously conscious of what you call BIRTH. This is a simple rearranging of matter. The codes – the blueprints for growth – remain the same. I rejoice in the abundance of the forests which is the response to the light I provide. This feeds an ever-evolving cycle, always in motion. This does not involve regret. Ask the trees. They do not cry over the loss of every leaf, but grow new buds when conditions are right.

Realise that YOU SMALL ONES ARE PART OF THIS CYCLE, AND MIRRORING MYSELF YOU ARE SMALL SUNS WHO SPREAD LIGHT AND ENCOURAGE GROWTH ACCORDINGLY. Imagine that every spurt of joy, each moment of ecstasy, each song of praise and gratitude you sing will WING ITS WAY THROUGH THE UNIVERSE, THROUGH THE AGES, AND THROUGH ETERNITY, PUTTING INTO MOTION EVEN MORE GROWTH WHEREVER IT GOES AND POSITIVELY INFLUENCING EVERYTHING IT MEETS ON ITS WAY.

It matters not if you are old or if you think you are near the end of life. The process is the same. Your effect is the same. And you are always at the start of a new beginning whether you radiate at a rapid pace with your youth and energy, or whether you move slowly with little strength. Important is the MOTION. Strength lies in your intention to do to others as you would do to yourself.

May your lives be FULL OF THE KNOWLEDGE THAT SERVING AS BEARERS OF LIGHT, IN WHATEVER CAPACITY, WILL BEAUTIFY YOUR EXISTENCE AND YOUR SURROUNDINGS. THUS I SEND MY LIGHT TO YOU.”
