Re: The world will become peaceful, beautiful and abundant IF ....
AC: Is the earth really nothing more than a rock floating through space? Does it not look like a living organism from afar - a globe with rivers, oceans an weather systems all connected to each other on the surface, a globe with an internal heating system with vents (volcanoes), a globe with "floating tectonic plates" which are in slow but constant movement?

This is a lifeless rock? And what position does this rock have in space? Is it tossing here and there, moving irrationally and sporadically? Is it motionless one moment and falling or rising the next? Is it spinning at a fairly constant rate? Is it following a certain course? Is it part of a larger system containing planets on similar courses?

Is the sun that all these planets circumnavigate there by chance? Is the sun motionless? Does it circle another sun called Alcyone? Is there no organization here? Is is all completely "pot luck" as to what happens out there in space? And is it by pure chance that our earth rotates ON A TILT?

Try standing at a tilt and rotating continuously. This is what the earth is doing. Does it feel pleasant? What happens to you if you are burdened over many many years by unsolvable problems and if you are exploited by 9 billion people? Will you walk strong and tall, or will your back be bent and your shoulders hunched? Won't you feel the desire to throw off everything which is burdening you? Won't you want to sit down and take a rest? This is the point we are at.

By this time it must be obvious to you that earth is not "just a rock". AC, you ask WHY BOTHER? The answer is: LOVE FOR THIS SUFFERING EARTH, INCLUDING THOSE WHO SUFFER WITH HER.


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.”
 Quoting: Colour Crusader


But it doesn't matter. Earth is a rock floating through space. If you attempt to make it out to be more than that, all the cruelty inherent in your grand metaphor of existence will moot it. Why bother at all?

The World will become peaceful, beautiful and abundant
IF WE TRAVEL WITH AWARENESS


THE RED TRAIN is a stream strain, lunging leisurely along the tracks with all the windows open, screeching and letting off steam at intervals. It cannot be overheard of overlooked, as it belches black smoke into the sky, and the chatter, laughter, screams and shouts of its passengers, sometimes hanging out of the windows, shatters the silence of the countryside through which it passes. The people inside rarely notice the exquisite meadows and hills they pass through – though they have ample opportunity - consuming sumptuous meals and moving slowly from one carriage to the next to the next social drinks party. Extreme anger, passion and pain is also experienced here – the whole barometer of strong emotions, followed by long periods of unconsciousness. Most of the passengers are not interested where the train is going, and most would not contemplate disembarkation, because they feel they are living life to the full, that this is their right, that the train is in service to them. Because they never look out of the window, they do not realise that the train is always travelling on a circular track.

THE BLACK AND WHITE TRAIN is a bullet train which glides from A to B and back again at incredible speed. The occupants are faceless and nameless, stern and polite if spoken to, which is rarely the case as no-one instigates casual conversation for no apparent reason. Everyone searches out an empty corner, as far away from others as possible, and lowers their eyes to avoid contact. If they are reproached for not answering a question, they apologise profusely and then return to their labtop, their book, or whatever requires their undivided attention. Most of the passengers cram the time between A and B with premeditated activity which involves only themselves. The ability to shut out what does not concern them continues at their place of destination, and then again on the commute back home to A. They never get out at the stops inbetween, indeed, the fewer stops the better in view of their clear-cut goal.

THE YELLOW TRAIN is a small local train with only two carriages. It is crammed full of children who giggle and cry and play and dream and clap and sing. Some push and shove, others stare out of the window, others wave at the passers-by. The train has a most unusual schedule: in fact it has no particular schedule at all. Whoever is on the train frantically trying to find a timetable or indication of the final destination, will be disappointed and disconcerted, for this is a train which travels eternally. When the children are bored or tired or don’t know what to do next, they ring the bell and the train stops. The children spill out onto the fields to run, or into the town to explore, or onto the banks of a river to play, or into an orchard to eat, or onto the grass to sleep. They do not worry, as they know the train is also waiting to take them on the next stage of their journey, wherever that may be, whenever they feel ready and refreshed.

THE BLUE TRAIN is not a train in the usual sense. It has no carriages at all. It is all one carriage without walls of separation, in fact the front of the train is usually but not always welded to the back of the train, and it is possible to pass through a door which connects the two. The track is therefore necessarily circular. The blue train is extremely long, as long as a life-time, and when passengers have walked through the whole length of the train, encountering people and situations on the way, they reach this door. The sight of this sudden barrier instills great fear in those passengers with short memories, but those who remember going through the door the last time know that is the door to new and exciting experiences. In a way, this train is also a combination of all the other trains, as it has a plan, but also makes unscheduled stops. The passengers can decide themselves whether they wish to take time out, or continue their passage towards the door. This train is different in that the staff check the passengers periodically, assessing their situations, providing sustenance and inspiration as necessary, providing the passengers are willing to listen and accept. They always have an eye on the passengers, even if they do not notice, and no-one – even if they throw themselves out of a window - escapes attention and gets lost for ever. Time, on this train, is insignificant. Everyone moves at their own pace, though if anyone gets “stuck” in any way, the staff is on hand to offer help.

While all trains travel in their own way, their tracks all pass through the same CENTRAL STATION, where everyone is forced to disembark, even if they decide to continue on the same train moments later. Now is the time of ALL CHANGE, when we revise our divine schedule and board the train which will lead us to our chosen destination.

The world will become peaceful, beautiful and abundant
IF OUR PHYSICAL ACTIVITIES ARE SIMULTANEOUSLY AN OPPORTUNITY TO REFLECT



A man is running along a road. The road stretches before him in a completely straight line, ending at a lighthouse in the far distance. He concentrates on moving forward with all his might in order to reach his destination. As he runs, his awareness is on the light at the top, guiding his steps on a purely physical level. Yet he is also aware that the same steps, at different times, feel lighter or heavier. This is because the road, although perfectly straight, also rises and falls from time to time, although it is not perceptible to the eye.

As he runs through the night, his eyes see the light more clearly – an immobile pinpoint contrasting with the stars which move across the sky. And during the day, the light all but disappears, yet he knows it is there. As he runs in reflection, he realises that the ground he is running on is actually the earth, turning through periods of night and day, and that the spinning earth is also moving round the sun.

As he turns inward, he reflects upon the constant circuit within himself, the passage of blood, the expelling of residue, the eternal renewal process of his cells, and he wonders in particular at those cells on the soles of his feet which are under constant pressure. He notices his breath – regular when relaxed, flat when in fear, imperceptible when he is asleep. In periods of heightened awareness, he becomes the earth itself, imagining what it must be like to feel the imprint of his running shoes on her body, how they bend the grass, how they thud on the concrete which prevents her breath.

In the end, the running man reaches his destination, only to find that a new circle of potential destinations has opened up as he surveys the landscape from the top of the lighthouse. Reflecting upon his past and potential future journeys he recognises the DENSITY of the physical matter he has traversed, and the physical body he has used to traverse it, but his experience has been so much more than this. NEW DIMENSIONS have opened up to him, resulting from his ability to reflect, observe, empathise and wonder. Holding all these perceptions at once, the running man recognises himself as part of the ENTIRE COSMOS.

Hello AC. I already replied to a different AC who said a similar thing: here is my answer. And yes, we are individuals, but we are all DIVINE INDIVIDUALS and part of the DIVINE WHOLE.

Here is my previous answer:
AC: Is the earth really nothing more than a rock floating through space? Does it not look like a living organism from afar - a globe with rivers, oceans an weather systems all connected to each other on the surface, a globe with an internal heating system with vents (volcanoes), a globe with "floating tectonic plates" which are in slow but constant movement?

This is a lifeless rock? And what position does this rock have in space? Is it tossing here and there, moving irrationally and sporadically? Is it motionless one moment and falling or rising the next? Is it spinning at a fairly constant rate? Is it following a certain course? Is it part of a larger system containing planets on similar courses?

Is the sun that all these planets circumnavigate there by chance? Is the sun motionless? Does it circle another sun called Alcyone? Is there no organization here? Is is all completely "pot luck" as to what happens out there in space? And is it by pure chance that our earth rotates ON A TILT?

Try standing at a tilt and rotating continuously. This is what the earth is doing. Does it feel pleasant? What happens to you if you are burdened over many many years by unsolvable problems and if you are exploited by 9 billion people? Will you walk strong and tall, or will your back be bent and your shoulders hunched? Won't you feel the desire to throw off everything which is burdening you? Won't you want to sit down and take a rest? This is the point we are at.

Re: The world will become peaceful, beautiful and abundant IF ....
OK AC 76585116: you are saying that I am in the same corner as that other thread (called GOD LOVES WAR AND VIOLENCE), which is definitely not the case. Here is the first post from that thread, and then I will comment on that.

Every square inch of this Earth is a battlefield for bugs, animals and men. This is how God created the world. And you christers believe that the "meek shall inherit the Earth"?
(Matthew 5.5)

Just in this parable Jesus proved that he was a fake.

The meek get eaten in this world since the beginning of time.

The real God loves war. He drinks blood from the skull of his enemies. He enjoys sex, especially with the women of the enemies. Read the OLD Testament!

Christianity is anti-nature because it teaches to hate your body which was created by....God.


My answer: God/Creation/Source/Universal Mind creates ONLY IN LOVE. He/she/it HAS NOT CREATED A MESS or a BATTLEFIELD. It is US, collectively and over many millennia, who have created the BATTLEFIELD. Think back on all the massacres in their millions worldwide. In the Middle East alone since 9/11. MILLIONS AND MILLIONS. DID A PERSON CALLED GOD DO THAT???!!! The idea is not be meek but to TAKE ON RESPONSIBILITY and to RESPOND IF REQUIRED. Being meek when someone is trying to kill you is SUICIDE.

Again, GOD is not a person with human appetites as the poster above describes. The OLD TESTAMENT is indeed a bloodthirsty document, but WE DO NOT HAVE TO BELIEVE IT ALL. The Bible generally is corrupt, mistranslated, censured and incomplete.

IF WE GET OFF THE ROUNDABOUT



Imagine you are a small child who sees a roundabout for the very first time. You will mount a wooden horse with innocent delight, anticipating that something wonderful is going to happen. Then you are warned that the roundabout will start and you are filled with trepidation. You may be shocked at the sudden movement and at the pace which is much faster than you expected, but you gradually get used to it or conceal your fear, accepting it as “normal”. Your fear may also be assuaged by your waving smiling parents shouting words of encouragement as you pass them by fleetingly.

As a small child, everything is all right, despite fear, if those parents remain in their places. If they depart for a minute or two, your world falls apart until they reappear. This is where FAMILIARITY plays a significant role. Even if there are many patches of unfamiliar ground between the rotations of the roundabout, the recognition process of main elements bolsters a certain satisfying confidence that you know where you are in the world. This is your reality, your family, your framework in which you comfortably reside, inside the comfort zone.

Flying past other zones at great speed, barely skimming the surface as you scan the landscape for signs which you recognise, is actually FAILING TO PENETRATE THE SURFACE OF A MUCH MORE VIBRANT AND CONFUSING AND COMPLEX AND DISTURBING WORLD WITH ALL ITS CONTRADICTIONS AND DUALITY.

To pursue this, the mass of dense lies and the countryside of corruption, as well as the delights of realms external to your physical senses, your imagination and your presently closeted planet, IS TO DISCOVER YOUR REAL SELVES: WHAT YOU HAVE PRODUCED, WHERE YOU HAVE COMPROMISED, WHAT YOU HAVE TOLERATED, WHERE YOU HAVE DISTRIBUTED FALSE AND INAPPROPRIATE PRAISE.

The feeling of flying through life, swinging past seemingly unfamiliar, irrelevant and vaguely unpleasant scenery, WILL CEASE, BECAUSE ALL ROUNDABOUTS WILL STOP AND YOU WILL BE ABLE TO SEE YOUR SURROUNDINGS WITH ABSOLUTE CLARITY AND IMMEDIACY. You will be forced to descend from your pedestals, your proud horses, and descend into the mire, as well as the joy, of what you have collectively produced. The only travelling now will not be circular or linear but a movement involving depth and lateral thinking involving ALL-EMCOMPASSING PERSPECTIVES.

You will walk round the roundabout, taking time to discover what you overlooked, what you missed out on, and what you missed as you travelled round so quickly for the thrill of the spin. Ask your souls why you feel you need this furious pace in your lives, this instant gratification, this constant detraction from the truth which is so near if only you will step down and examine it.

The period of nothingness, of no travel, or no time and no distractions approaches. Prepare yourselves well, for the task is formidable, the grief is great, and the ensuing joy and relief unfathomable. Reset your rapid swirling movements to nought. Return to stillness, to your centre of Godliness which is the pivot of the roundabout, reconnecting your cord to Creation whose laws have been so sadly broken.

IF WE CAN LOOK UPON THE HORIZON OF INIFINITY


The huge river flows through a CELESTIAL CLEARING HOUSE, before it joins the sea. The fish who are incapable of swimming for long periods without seeing their destination or a shore in the distance, are taken out before they reach the extensive expanses of the great ocean of the universe. Those who have never looked forward in anticipation of something larger and bigger beyond their comprehension are carefully removed because they would not survive the shock of the horizon of infinity. They must first make their new experiences in another safer haven, in preparation for open seas.

The fish who have struggled to follow their own particular paths despite the pull of currents, and who are used to encountering adversity, but continue along their path anyway, fare well and possess the initiative and presence of mind to turn around and make for the new shores, instead of being devastated or overwhelmed by the sight of endless waters.

The fish who in their timidity have bunched together out of fright in the river, and who have sometimes taken refuge in such groups, are discovering that their particular group or group belief is not an important factor in the clearing-house, for here, everyone is an individual with an individual story based on a multitude of individual decisions. Here they are separated from the group, their sense of group identity, and examined for their individual choices.

The fish who have always “gone with the flow” without question, without contemplation, without inward reflection, cannot continue in the same manner. They are forced to pause and take up position, asked to reflect upon their decision not to question the flow or examine it. To allow these into the ocean would be to subject them to the much more powerful tides and waves, to the immense power of the seas which would batter and destroy them. They too are invited to go elsewhere, or turn the corner, or take a period of thoughtful stillness, of non-movement, to realise where they are and where they want to be.

Every fish goes through this process, choosing the next door, into the next experience, into the next dimension, or into the next life, a process involving a period of pause in the clearing house, where all are sorted in conjunction with their own will, whether consciously or subconsciously.

The fish which have sometimes dared to face the current will have developed the strength and self-determination to face the future fearlessly and honestly. They are the ones who can question the usual flow, who have developed personal qualities of self-reliance and discernment, who have conducted thorough and honest investigation. They are the one who can withstand the glory of the open seas.

IF WE RECOGNISE THAT DIVINE TIMING ALWAYS TAKES PLACE


The are some who recognize pleasant or unusual or significant "coincidences with great excitement and wonder, proclaiming that it must indeed be DIVINE TIMING for this to happen. Yet, if an obstacle to their desires or a pointer in an alternative direction suddenly materializes, they will reject it outright because it is not in alignment with their plans or wishes. On such occasions, they will reject the DIVINE TIMING idea.

The answer to this problem is to recognize that DIVINE TIMING IS ALWAYS RIGHT! What one has to question, if obstacles arise, is whether one is on the right course, or whether one is making the right decisions. If one is constantly meeting with opposition, it will be a constant invitation to change something.

One example of this: a woman wants a steady relationship with a man, but every boyfriend she has turns out to be married after she has known him for two months.

She can regard herself as an eternal victim, condemning men for their lack of communication and deceiving behaviour. Or she can ask herself WHY SHE WOULD ATTRACT EXACTLY THIS SORT OF MAN.

If she self-reflects assiduously, she will realize that SHE HERSELF IS AFRAID OF REAL INTIMACY, and thus she subconsciously chooses those who, similarly, are not "free" to enter into a deep relationship. If she works on herself, discovering the root of her stance, and if she changes her behaviour as a result, she will automatically attract a different sort of person.

Thus, it may be hard to immediately discern or accept, but DIVINE TIMING IS ALWAYS RIGHT and ALWAYS APPLIES.

IF YOU STRIVE TO EXIT YOUR PRISONS


Imagine yourselves as plants, growing as tender seedlings, receiving nurture each day from the sun and rain, and also independently drawing your own nourishment from the abundant soil, automatically stretching towards the light, growing tall yet developing stability simultaneously through your roots in the earth.

Until one day the delicate tendrils of your exploring roots strike something hard. Your attention is diverted from the light, distracted and frustrated by this barrier. It appears to be immovable, so you adapt, and your roots grows further, but programmed to grow in a different direction. This experience is repeated, and in the end, all your roots meet and are so densely meshed that there is no longer any soil or nourishment between them. Growth has stopped. You are entirely dependent on what you receive from above.

It is at this point that you may realise that you are a prisoner. You are a pot plant in a hothouse as opposed to a seedling in the forest. You are contained. Your growth is contained. Your potential for huge and spectacular growth is contained.

STUNTED GROWTH, YOUR LONELINESS, YOUR FEELINGS OF SEPARATION, YOUR NARROW VIEWS AND EXPERIENCES, YOUR LIMITIED PERCEPTIONS AND SELF-CENTRED BIGOTTED VIEWS ARE ALL DERIVED FROM YOUR VOLUNTARY DECISION TO GROW IN A LIMITING ENVIRONMENT WHICH REDUCES YOU TO SMALL, POWERLESS AND ULTIMATELY CONTROLLABLE ENTITIES. IN THIS CONDITION, YOU WILL NEVER EXPERIENCE TRUE CONTACT WITH OTHERS OR DEVELOP NETWORKS OF UNITY.

Your compartmentalisations into different racial, religious, social, intellectual and financial POTS blind you to the basic concept of yourselves as constantly growing and evolving beings working together for the glory of your common good, and for the glory of your DIVINE PARENTS whose watchful eyes never stray from your side, observing their children’s choices.

REMOVE YOURSELVES FROM YOUR PRISONS OF MIND AND MOVE INTO ONENESS. For soon shall all artificial walls of this nature fall in one abrupt episode, enabling communication and touch and contact BETWEEN ALL.

How will you react? Will your long years as members of this or that section of society or religion or country PREVENT YOU FROM MOVING ON, EVEN THOUGH THE WALLS HAVE BEEN REMOVED? It is time to disregard that which separates you and focus on the COMMON DENOMINATORS which link you for eternity, for this will bring you new worlds and great joy.

The world will become peaceful, beautiful and abundant
IF WE ARE AWARE OF THE ETERNAL CYCLES OF LIFE AND DEATH


An elaborate funeral service was taking place in a large church. It involved much pomp and circumstance and expense, and the clergymen leading the service seemed to be secretly laughing at the gullibility and the grief of the mourners, but their faces were serious and resembled masks with very concerned features.

A long-established tradition of burying corpses meant that the small graveyard was already crammed with tombstones of all shapes and sizes. There was NO ROOM FOR ANY MORE. Again, the clergymen in charge were fully aware of the principle of reincarnation, and knew that the soul continued its journey in another realm but they encouraged the suppression of this knowledge, continuing their rituals and rites to instill the population with fear, respect and a feeling of helplessness and doom. It was a method of control and of earning money, as the coffins were very ornate.

And an ornate plan accompanied their making. As there was no room in the graveyard, it was suggested that coffins be floated downriver to another site. Boats for accompanying relatives were also provided. Those who were very upset did not notice that the accompanying boats were all roped to the coffin itself. Others wondered mildly what was going on, but most just accepted that this was some sort of tradition.

It was a dark night and very difficult to see ahead in the inky waters. The only assistance came from the light of a bright moon. Passengers who were more aware noticed that the reflection of the moon stopped abruptly a short way ahead. Sensing that something was very, very wrong, and disconcerted by the increasingly loud sound of rushing water, they cut the ropes tying them to the coffin and struggled to the banks of the river.

Those who sat humbly in the remaining boats, with eyes closed, fell together with the coffin over a huge waterfall, where all perished on impact with the water below. Slaves and minions of the clergymen were waiting on the shore to collect the broken corpses, so that they too could go through the church service and burial process. And so, the system continued – a vicious circle – with only a few people knowing or suspecting the truth of what was going on.

From that day on, the survivors lived their lives to the full, intensely aware of everything around them, knowing that their choices and behavior would determine how long destructive circuits and circles of manipulation and exploitation would continue. They know that they were beacons of light for future generations. Even when they were older, they did not say that they were too old and weak to continue, for they knew that every word and thought would contribute to future constructs beyond the perimeters of their present earthly existence.

It is often said that our truest and most profound purpose on this Earth
is to remember that we are all one Divine being, separate from nothing,
even while we are in individual bodies.
We have reached the end of the search only to find out that
what we have been searching for all along is actually what we are.
hfWe are that.
Water is the only drink for a wise man.
Call me a pot but heat me not.-Putin
Silence is where God speaks. Anything else is but a poor translation. -Rumi
Wanna hear God laugh? Just talk about your plans.
An old broom knows all the corners.
Slow is steady; steady is smooth; smooth is fast.
Success has a thousand fathers but failure only one son.
The deeper that sorrow carves into your being, the more joy you can contain.-Gibran

Re: The world will become peaceful, beautiful and abundant IF ....
Thank you AC 72035248. Certainly I can teach this sort of "receiving", and the process and the result will be unique for each individual. There are several sorts of officially named meditation techniques around, but like religions, it is best to develop one's own method of talking to the divine, or downloading important information. The great and unfortunately successful attempt to crush independent thinking and to suppress personal connections to UNIVERSAL MIND has resulted in the mess we see all around today. If that sacred connection is upheld, if we know we can communicate at all times with a "greater power", then no outward power can hold sway over us any more, holding us under control. Suffice to say, this is a very important process for all.

The answers to all problems are always available. All problems are caused by erroneous ways of thinking and behaviour, so to speak, from the "inside". Any outward manifestations are merely that - manifestations of inner decisions.

How to go about this? A short preparation period of a couple of minutes, to get one "in the mood" and in a reflective and open frame of mind, is helpful, though as one becomes more and more connected over time, this is no longer necessary. The aim is to become "online" all the time, by the way. For example, as I write this, I am not really thinking about it deeply, I am writing what comes to mind, i.e. WHAT IS GIVEN TO ME. I do not sit here composing paragraphs, then re-reading, or correcting - it simply flows.

Back to topic: the ideal would be to be able to "meditate", for want of a better word, wherever one is, surrounded by whatever situation, whether noisy or exuberant or dangerous, but that is a more advanced stage. So yes, find a quiet space to sit down comfortably and close your eyes.

Step 1: Do some deep breathing, and then imagine that a white or gold ray of light descends from the sky, enters your crown chakra, descends through your body, splits when it comes to your legs, descends through the ground and joins up again, descends to the earth's core, and then comes up again on the return journey to join at the top above you. Thus you are part of a CIRCUIT OF LIGHT.

Step 2: ORDER THE LIGHT TO CIRCULATE AUTOMATICALLY AND QUICKLY. (Edited to say that this is a DIVINE INFORMATION CIRCUIT)

Step 3: Ask for COMPLETE OBJECTIVITY. You can use your own method for this. I imagine a pure white crystal ball entering my third eye.

Step 4: CLEAR THE SPACE AROUND YOU AND INSIDE YOU. You can choose your own method, for example imagining lots of people cleaning the room you are sitting in, or a wave of water sweeping through you.

Step 5: ASK YOUR QUESTION. Many think that meditation is simply relaxing and emptying the mind. I would say it is clearing the mind IN ORDER TO RECEIVE. When you have asked your question, you will start to see pictures or visuals or stories in your mind's eye, if you are a very visually oriented person like me. Others may hear words, or see colors, or feel feelings. It is imperative that you TRUST WHAT IS GIVEN TO YOU. The best way to develop trust is to WRITE EVERYTHING DOWN after the session. This way you can read everything after a number of sessions and you will able to see how this is all affecting you, and how the advice/wisdom imparted is affecting your decisions FOR THE BETTER.

As I said, it will be different for everyone. You decide what method works for you, how much energy you want to put into it, how fast you want to travel. I did this daily for three years, at a certain time of the day. Now I do it when required. It has been - and still is - an amazing journey, and I wish you well on yours.

Re: The world will become peaceful, beautiful and abundant IF ....
Thank you dear Hillbilly for your words of wisdom. If we remembered this all the time, it would be impossible for us to hurt anyone through word or deed, because we would know we are deliberately hurting ourselves. We would never eat another animal, because we would be eating ourselves. We would never pollute our environment, because we would be polluting ourselves. Our "individual bodies" are a temporary measure so that we can EXPRESS AND MANIFEST THE DIVINE IN OUR OWN UNIQUE WAY. If we can conceive of ourselves as part of this divine whole, this will change our behaviour radically.

Thank you again for your comment,



It is often said that our truest and most profound purpose on this Earth
is to remember that we are all one Divine being, separate from nothing,
even while we are in individual bodies.
We have reached the end of the search only to find out that
what we have been searching for all along is actually what we are.
hfWe are that.

IF WE LAUGH AND CRY AT THE RIGHT TIMES


A young girl stood in a desert on a huge dome of sand, surveying the absolute barrenness of the earth. In her mind’s eye, she remembered scenes of terrible destruction and desecration in her life, lamenting all situations involving war, famine, chaos and distress. And through all this, she had kept a stiff upper lip. She had even retained a slight smile on her strained face in the hope that this would somehow ward off what she considered “evil”.

But now she stood on the huge sand dome overlooking the deserted ground. The smile was gone and her eyes brimmed with tears. SHE HAD NEVER CRIED BEFORE. There was nothing here but wind and sand and the white bones of dead camels.

As the wind grew stronger she noticed that a few clumps of dead twigs were blown across the desert, and at this point she burst into uncontrollable sobs. She walked on and on, blinded by her own tears, until she reached the very edge of the desert. Here she was greeted by a row of angelic beings who stood in her path. They stopped her gently and motioned to her to turn around.

To her great amazement, the desert was suddenly full of flowers. The small clumps of twigs were actually plants which had purposely uprooted themselves and formed ball-like shapes so that their seeds – still fastened to the twigs – had a better chance of travelling to fertile ground. The many tears shed by the girl had watered the seeds.

It was then that the girl realised the great power of the emotions which she had kept inside her for so long. She rejoiced in the desert garden, her new home, renamed THE VALE OF TEARS, and she laughed and cried there all day long, giving full expression to all feelings, knowing that her authentic behaviour was benefitting all.

IF WE CAN FACE OUR WRONGDOINGS


In a country far away, there were daily processions through the streets. They were headed by horses under very strict control, walking two by two, mounted by officials in order of rank, with the most important leading the procession. They wore crowns, top hats, uniforms or medals which gave them an aura of authority. These were the “kings and queens” who made the decisions. The rest were followers rather than leaders, and wore no distinctive markings at all.

The kings and queens rode very regally with their heads high, aware of the impression they were making on the passers-by. They rode continuously, basking in the admiration of the populace, and the villagers turned out regularly without fail to applaud them.

Alhough most of the followers followed blindly, others were aware of the great rigidity of the processions - the route was always the same, and the pecking order was always the same. The horses and their riders were never allowed to move to another position. Those at the very end of the procession were so far behind that they had never actually seen the king and queen leading it, and they became very dissatisfied and restless. They were always straining forward, eager for new experiences and chances, but this was not possible. Neither was it possible to stop and have a rest, or to separate oneself in any way from the other riders.

In the end, the very last rider was so frustrated that he decided to do something which he knew was punishable by death. He turned around and looked behind him. What he saw instilled him with great fear: it was the king and queen at the head of the procession. Their faces were distorted with rage, but despite his desperate act, the last rider felt strangely liberated, as if he had broken an enchantment lasting many centuries. At this very moment, everyone in the procession, including the leading king and queen, REALISED THAT THEY HAD BEEN RIDING A MERRY-GO-ROUND.

Some did not want to acknowledge this. They felt that their world was falling apart, and they got off their horses and ran screaming. They had lost their central pivot, their stability, their point of reference. They closed their eyes and pretended that everything was alright.

Others who were more adventurous urged their horses to move away, but the leading king and queen simply sat on their horses and tried to carry on as usual, trying to hide their great dismay that their procession was now decimated. Many of their followers had now deflected. Instead of applause, they now earned the jeers of the villagers, and in the end, the remaining group of leaders and the main king and queen were forced to leave. They realised that they had taken part in a gross façade, a play with little meaning. They had controlled others, and like puppets, they had also been controlled.

The horses felt a great sense of freedom and tossed everyone off their backs who did not rejoice with them. They galloped away like the wind, cleansing everything which came into their path. The kings and queens were thrown off and lay there helplessly. Because they had been riding for so long, they had LOST THE ABILITY TO WALK.

Some of the village folk refused to help them, jaunting them about their high and mighty ways and rejoicing in their downfall. They had no sympathy at all. Others, though not impressed by the previous behaviour of the kings and queens, decided to show compassion and mercy. This help was rebuked by all those with hearts of stone, and accepted by those who exercised humility and were able to appreciate the kindness of their former minions. The latter started to interact with the villagers and to show gratitude.

Although offers of help were repeatedly made to the remaining few who lay on the ground, they were steadfastly refused, and so gradually the village people gave up, with sadness in their hearts, knowing that they could do nothing to change their minds. Their focus was now finishing the preparations for a village festival with music and dance. This took place in the evening in a lighted market place. The helpless kings and queens were left unattended in the shadows. They had been given up for good. As their bodies crumpled, their souls emerged and were immediately escorted away by angels of justice. Those who survived gathered to dance and celebrate the beginning of a NEW AGE.

Re: The world will become peaceful, beautiful and abundant IF ....
Thank you AC 72035248. Certainly I can teach this sort of "receiving", and the process and the result will be unique for each individual. There are several sorts of officially named meditation techniques around, but like religions, it is best to develop one's own method of talking to the divine, or downloading important information. The great and unfortunately successful attempt to crush independent thinking and to suppress personal connections to UNIVERSAL MIND has resulted in the mess we see all around today. If that sacred connection is upheld, if we know we can communicate at all times with a "greater power", then no outward power can hold sway over us any more, holding us under control. Suffice to say, this is a very important process for all.

The answers to all problems are always available. All problems are caused by erroneous ways of thinking and behaviour, so to speak, from the "inside". Any outward manifestations are merely that - manifestations of inner decisions.

How to go about this? A short preparation period of a couple of minutes, to get one "in the mood" and in a reflective and open frame of mind, is helpful, though as one becomes more and more connected over time, this is no longer necessary. The aim is to become "online" all the time, by the way. For example, as I write this, I am not really thinking about it deeply, I am writing what comes to mind, i.e. WHAT IS GIVEN TO ME. I do not sit here composing paragraphs, then re-reading, or correcting - it simply flows.

Back to topic: the ideal would be to be able to "meditate", for want of a better word, wherever one is, surrounded by whatever situation, whether noisy or exuberant or dangerous, but that is a more advanced stage. So yes, find a quiet space to sit down comfortably and close your eyes.

Step 1: Do some deep breathing, and then imagine that a white or gold ray of light descends from the sky, enters your crown chakra, descends through your body, splits when it comes to your legs, descends through the ground and joins up again, descends to the earth's core, and then comes up again on the return journey to join at the top above you. Thus you are part of a CIRCUIT OF LIGHT.

Step 2: ORDER THE LIGHT TO CIRCULATE AUTOMATICALLY AND QUICKLY. (Edited to say that this is a DIVINE INFORMATION CIRCUIT)

Step 3: Ask for COMPLETE OBJECTIVITY. You can use your own method for this. I imagine a pure white crystal ball entering my third eye.

Step 4: CLEAR THE SPACE AROUND YOU AND INSIDE YOU. You can choose your own method, for example imagining lots of people cleaning the room you are sitting in, or a wave of water sweeping through you.

Step 5: ASK YOUR QUESTION. Many think that meditation is simply relaxing and emptying the mind. I would say it is clearing the mind IN ORDER TO RECEIVE. When you have asked your question, you will start to see pictures or visuals or stories in your mind's eye, if you are a very visually oriented person like me. Others may hear words, or see colors, or feel feelings. It is imperative that you TRUST WHAT IS GIVEN TO YOU. The best way to develop trust is to WRITE EVERYTHING DOWN after the session. This way you can read everything after a number of sessions and you will able to see how this is all affecting you, and how the advice/wisdom imparted is affecting your decisions FOR THE BETTER.

As I said, it will be different for everyone. You decide what method works for you, how much energy you want to put into it, how fast you want to travel. I did this daily for three years, at a certain time of the day. Now I do it when required. It has been - and still is - an amazing journey, and I wish you well on yours.





Thank you AC 72536318; hf

I would like to repeat here that these are visuals given to me during meditation, which then describe on paper. They often come in the form of stories or parables.

...


Amazing insights OP!

Wow, they're beautiful little stories. What kind of meditation do you practise? Can you teach us it please? At the moment when I meditate I close me eyes, silence my mind, then extend out and connect with the spirit of Nature. They're are no words with it though it's all feelings. I would love to learn how to gain your insights. Cheers!

The world will become peaceful, beautiful and abundant
IF WE RELEASE THOSE WHO ARE UNJUSTLY KEPT INSIDE A PENAL COLONY


A group of people were meditating inside a circular compound at the centre of penal colony. The prisoners paraded around this circular compound, all wearing identical clothes, as this was part of their daily “exercise”. Some prisoners were so apathetic or felt so weak that it was very difficult to put one foot in front of the other. Their eyes were always cast upon the ground. Other prisoners were very alert, watching the others carefully with darting roving eyes to discover any differences. They would see immediately if one prisoner was fatter than another, which meant that they were receiving secret rations, and they would see immediately whether anyone had shoes in better condition than their own, and they would then switch pairs at an opportune moment. They were on the look-out for anything which could be stolen. Yet other prisoners regarded their fellow inmates with compassion, not seeking anything for themselves but assessing how they could best give.

There were very few prisoners who – in addition to being aware of themselves and others – were also aware of the fact THAT THEY WERE NOT WALKING IN A STRAIGHT LINE. The few that also kept their eyes ON THE SUN AND ITS POSITION also understood that they must be walking in a circle, ending up at the same place that they began. Some awareness grew that there MUST BE SOMETHING BEHIND THE WALL AND WITHIN THAT CIRCLE, but most prisoners did not realise, and indeed, they rarely looked up at all.

For those who did look up one cold night, a sudden light met their eyes. The light began as a dull glow above the rim of the wall, and then it became a huge flame which was startling in its intensity. In a flash, it started to explode, and small round golden objects fell to the ground, landing at the feet of the prisoners. This could not be overlooked, and all the prisoners stopped in their tracks immediately. Some prisoners recognised this as money and fell on their knees, pushing others aside in their scramble to collect it. But as they did so, the golden “coins” slipped through their fingers. This was not actually solid metal but a feathery light stretchy material which floated everywhere and glinted fabulously.

Other prisoners watched in wonder as tall golden figures appeared before them. They started to gather the floating material and heaped it gently onto themselves, motioning to the prisoners to do the same. Those who regarded this scene in wonder and love, aware that a great transformation process was being initiated, started to gather the golden flakes which seemed to stick to their skin like magnets. It clung to their bodies until they were covered completely by a golden shroud. Those prisoners who harboured vicious and mercenary thoughts were not able to attract the golden particles and were led away.

Those prisoners who were usually quite friendly but who kept themselves to themselves, meaning no harm, were very afraid. The golden flakes were not attracted to them, but neither did they disperse. When the tall golden beings opened the doors of the penal colony, they rushed out to find their families.

Then the golden figures took the hands of the remaining prisoners, who were now wearing shrouds of gold, leading them to the top of a nearby hill. From this vantage point it was clear that there were actually THOUSANDS OF PEOPLE who had completed this process of BECOMING LIGHT, for golden-clad beings lined the ridges of the mountains as far as the eye could see.

People in the valleys looked into the skies and saw a flurry of very unusual activity and “stars” which moved, and this plunged them all into great fear. The presence of the still, golden lights on the mountains, however, were a source of great consolation and hope. After some time, all the golden-clad beings walked down the mountains into the villages, and the villagers recognised the former prisoners. This was cause for great rejoicing, and it completely eliminated the fear which had afflicted them previously. Thus, the gold-clad beings were able to speak their truth and were accepted as messengers of a new and better way of living.

IF WE WORK TOGETHER IN UNISON


Many ships of different sizes were crossing a very choppy ocean in roughly the same direction, heading for a beautiful island far away in the distance. They had heard that the island was like paradise, so this was their goal.

Some ships were more like boats - small and open. The passengers sat silently with their heads bowed, or they chanted low incantations or mantras. They were mostly in fear, not daring to look up, although they were very aware of the large waves, and there was great tension in their bodies.

One ship was very large, carrying a great number of soldiers in uniform, accompanied by families who said very little and who did as was expected of them. A brass band was playing triumphant music, and this was accompanied by flag hoisting, followed by speeches. No-one really noticed the size of the waves at all, as the ship was so big and powerful, and because their attention was focused elsewhere.

On a fairly large cruise ship, everyone was on the party deck, dancing and drinking, so they did not notice the waves either. If they fell over, they put it down to their alcohol intake. On yet another ship, the waves were not noticed either: the course was on automatic, because EVERYONE WAS ASLEEP IN THEIR BEDS.

On one of the smaller ships, the SHIP OF UNITY, the passengers were all alert. They were well organised, helped each other, and showed understanding in all difficult circumstances. Those who were afraid were comforted, those who were hungry were fed. The children were told stories and the old were cared for. It was clear that they had to weather this ordeal together, as there was no option of leaving the ship. There were always at least two lookouts at the prow of the ship, scouring the horizon for danger, and watching the water for rocks. They all worked in unison and communicated frequently.

Suddenly the storm worsened, and the view of the island in the distance was completely blocked. It was almost as if a bank of solid mist had descended, except that this was actually a row of swirling whirlwinds. There was only just enough room to pass between two whirlwinds, and it was clear that this had to be very carefully navigated and could only be achieved through joint effort.

The look-outs on the SHIP OF UNITY immediately saw the whirlwinds and attempted to sound the alarm by ringing bells. Everyone in their own ship held themselves in a state of readiness while continuing to attend to everyone’s basic needs, but the other ships did not hear the bells. The brass band on the very large military ship and the loud music on the cruise ship drowned the sound of the alarm. The small boats heard the alarm but ignored it out of fear and only bent their heads further, praying more fervently than ever that they might be saved. And the others heard nothing because they were asleep.

This meant that the majority of boats simply continued to steer directly for the whirlwinds and were caught up by them. They were held there, twirling slowly, by a strong force, as if captured within a strong and stable magnetic field. Only the SHIP OF UNITY managed to avoid the whirlwinds. As they looked back, they saw the other ships had failed to do so. They felt great sorrow, as they felt they had not managed to warn them in time, but they knew also that they had done their best.

The ship reached the shores of the beautiful island and everyone cried and fell onto the sandy shore in relief that the journey was over. The emotions which had been largely kept under wraps during the journey were now all released. They seemed, now, to have a new perspective and a new way of seeing.

When the survivors turned around to look at the whirlwinds, they saw that they were actually great, lighted beings deliberately whipping up the winds to test incoming ships. The number of ships now approaching was huge, and the lighted beings had an enormous task. The people on shore understood that they had passed some sort of test and that they were now to proceed down a path into the forest. This path was lined by more angels, bowing in acknowledgement of their achievement. At the end of the path was the largest lighted being of all, who embraced everyone in turn and brought them all to a place of rest to recover from their experience.

IF WE CONTINUE TO EXCAVATE OUR MINDS


A group of art students wandered around in a large marble quarry, looking at all the blocks of marble and trying to decide which one to choose. Some took a long time over this, pondering the quality and size of the stones, and others selected intuitively and without hesitation. Those who took their time were gently ushered on by the master sculptor who was supervising the whole operation. He gently reminded them that the outside form of the block of marble was not so important, and that it was the INSIDE which mattered.

The master sculptor then gave the students the task of DISCOVERING THEMSELVES. He told them that by chipping off the outside layer of the marble, they would find an aspect of themselves which required more attention. So, everyone was given a hammer and chisel and was told to begin.

This was no easy work, as some had never held a hammer before, but as they experimented and adjusted and applied dedication, they made progress and were very excited to find the first “unchippable” part of stone, which meant they had found the tip of what they were looking for. Others, who tired quickly and who did not really understand what this whole process was about, and who laid down their tools from time to time, were inspired to continue when they saw that others had made headway.

Eventually, after many hours of excavation, nearly everyone had finished. A bell rang. The students sat in a long row opposite the object they had excavated, and were asked to contemplate what they had to learn.

One student sat opposite the head of an emperor, and this signified that the man’s next task was to develop leadership qualities. Another student sat opposite the head of a cartoon-like dog, with a large tongue hanging out of its mouth, making it look rather ridiculous. This signified that the student should concentrate in more depth on his spiritual nature.

One woman, who had only managed to chip away half of her marble block, sat opposite the creased and twisted face of an angry witch, wearing a pointed hat. She could not come to terms with this at all and fell into a sorry heap, accusing the master sculptor of being hard-hearted. The master sculptor picked her up gently and handed her the hammer. He turned the marble block around and asked her to chip away at the other side.

It took her a very long time to do this, as she kept on breaking off to lament her dreadful situation, and to scream that the witch-like face had nothing to do with her. But the master sculptor continued to encourage her, saying she must continue if she really wanted change. Finally, the other side of the witch’s head was revealed – the face of a beautiful young woman. This signified that the woman was a goddess who had forgotten that she was a goddess.

IF WE SEARCH DILIGENTLY FOR THE WATERFALL OF TRUTH


Due to a sense of great crisis, a group of riders on horses were riding AS FAST AS POSSIBLE on a very vital mission. They all wore armour and carried spears and banners. Together they formed a very colourful crowd, as they came from many different races and tribes. Even the horses were various surprising shades of colour, apart from the normal black or brown. All together they raced on, leaving clouds of dust and darkness behind them, searching valiantly for the only thing which still interested them – THE WATERFALL OF TRUTH.

As they travelled, the wide valley they moved through became increasingly narrow and the slopes to the side became steeper, forcing the riders to bunch together more. In addition, they were aware that other riders had joined them on the way, but they did not know exactly who these extra riders were because they were also wearing armour, and visors covered their faces. Their focus remained on the horizon, scanning it for the waterfall that they KNEW must be there, as they KNEW that the valley ended and that the waterfall must become visible soon.

When at last they arrived at the waterfall, weary and thirsty, they stopped and drank of its waters. Almost immediately, they REMEMBERED WHO THEY REALLY WERE – their true selves. Then everyone took off their armour and started to recognise each other from other missions and past lives. Grand reunions took place.

Everyone sat and talked about old times, knowing that the veil of forgetfulness had been lifted by their impassioned search for the waterfall of truth. They now knew that they would be working together always.

IF WE REPLY TO THE KNOCKING ON OUR DOOR


Once there was a man who always dressed in white. Through this, he showed his intention to become a shining light in the face of darkness, yet others did not seem to be interested in changing the world for the better.

To invite others to share his cause, he drew a large figure of eight on the ground and sat inside one loop. He gestured to passersby to sit in the other loop opposite him, knowing that they had great potential. He addressed them politely with a few well-chosen words, but did not allow them to enter his loop.

The first woman sat opposite him, crying and asking for help, but as soon as he had comforted her in the form of soothing words, she stopped and regarded him critically. She became melodramatic when he held his ground, sometimes stopping to check his reaction. She thrashed about and made demands. It was difficult to remain calm. In the end, she turned round stubbornly and refused contact. Communication ended.

The second person to enter the opposite loop was shy. This woman sat writing, with her body at an angle to the man in white. She was aware of his presence, but did not look up or acknowledge him. She kept repeating to herself: “I am important, I am writing something important, I must not become distracted again, I will do what I want. I must fulfil myself. All else is secondary.” Communication ended.

The third woman who entered the loop never kept still. She bounced in and out of the circle, sometimes completely disappearing, sometimes appearing very close in front of the man in white. She smiled and talked a lot. She was carefree and seemingly tolerant of other approaches to life, but always confident that she was right. She listened and smiled but went her own way. Communication ended.

The man in white heaved a heavy sigh and decided that his method was not working, so he stepped out of the figure of eight and went on his way. His path was littered with large, black, wooden boxes. Each of these contained a living person. Their skin was completely white because it had not seen sunlight for a long time. Previous attempts to “free” or “wake up” such persons - by lifting up the box lid for a fragment of a second - had always been thwarted by fear. The people inside the boxes were used to these brief intrusions and always pulled the lid down again immediately with a bang. However hard one knocked, they would not come out. It was then that the man in white gave the order to stop knocking. Many months passed.

One imprisoned person noticed that no one had tried to open their box for a long time, and so they began to wonder what was going on. Very carefully, they tried to push up the lid themselves. This time, the lid did not move because heaps of soil and debris had been built up on top. It was then that the person realised that they had let themselves be buried alive, and they started to scream. And as soon as one person in a box started to scream, many people in many boxes started to scream.

At this point, the man in white was joined by many companions. They all carried shovels in their hands, ready to free those who were imprisoned. When the soil was removed, many persons of great potential stepped out into the light, stumbling blindly, shattered by the knowledge that they had spent most of their lives in darkness.

A group of these long-time “prisoners” surrounded the man in white and put him on a pedestal. They wanted to sit at his feet and listen to his words in awe, but the man in white did not allow it. He asked them to stand up and speak their truth one by one. Then they followed him dutifully in a long line into a huge white cathedral. There were no ornate decorations, not even an altar. The man in white stood where the altar should have been and said I AM A PART OF DIVINITY. When he asked everyone else to go up and do the same, they cowered in fright and pleaded unworthiness. Eventually, amid much emotion, they did what he said.

When this ritual was over, everyone held hands to form a circle, and a tiny shoot of green appeared through a crack in the floor. This grew into a beautiful bush with large white flowers, symbolising that there are many individuals, but they all spring from the same Divine Source. EVERYONE HAS THE POTENTIAL TO DEVELOP FROM A CLOSED SLEEPING BUD INTO HEALTHY, VIBRANT BLOSSOM.

WHEN WE SEE THROUGH THE EYES OF A CHILD

Through the Eyes of a Child
By Aurora

The world is covered by our trails
Scars we cover up with paint
Watch them preach in sour lies
I would rather see this world through the eyes of a child
Through the eyes of a child...

Darker times will come and go
Times you need to see her smile
And mothers hearts are warm and mild
I would rather feel this world through the skin of a child
Through the skin of a child...


When a human strokes your skin
That is when you let them in
Let them in before they go
I would rather feel alive with a childlike soul
With a childlike soul...

IF WE TAKE LEAPS OF FAITH


A small chubby boy was sitting on the grass, looking downwards and not feeling very happy. Ladies dressed in long white robes were looking after him and a lot of other children. A big box of fancy dress clothing stood in the middle of the field, and the children screamed with excitement as they discovered a huge variety of costumes, each more elaborate and beautiful than the next. When they found a suit that fit, they took on that particular role, pretending to be birds, fairies, elves or butterflies.

One of the ladies tried to animate the little chubby boy, showing him gorgeous costumes, but he was too sad to make much of an effort and just sat watching.
Suddenly, one of the white ladies produced a large hoola hoop and positioned it vertically on the grass, as if something or someone was going to jump through it. The costumed children ran towards it excitedly but stopped in surprise when they looked through the hoop. On the other side, instead of grass, was nothing except for a circle of blackness.

The lady in white encouraged the children gently saying that if they dared to go through the hoop, their dreams would come true. She told them that something was on the other side, even though they could not see it. The first child plucked up his courage and went through the hoop. He disappeared completely. But the children could hear his excited cries on the “other side” saying “I am flying! I am a bird!”

One by one, they followed him through the hoop. The small sad chubby boy became even sadder, because all the other children were gone, just as always. They came and went, but nobody stayed for any amount of time.

Then the lady in white carried the small boy to the edge of the hoop and whispered in his ear: “You cannot see the other side, BUT KNOW THAT IT IS THERE”. Then she went through the hoop herself and disappeared into the darkness.

Now the little boy was very distraught because he was completely alone. But then he heard the voice of the lady in white, his guardian angel, encouraging him to take a leap of faith. When he did so, she caught him joyfully in her arms and threw him up into the sky because there, on the other side, everyone was able to fly.

The small boy smiled and rejoiced, and the next time he saw a hoop being set up, he moved on with those who chose to do so, not knowing what his next experience might be, but knowing he would always learn something new, and knowing that his guardian angel would always be waiting to catch him the moment he jumped into the unknown.

IF WE DO NOT WAIT AND SEE, BUT TRUST THAT OUR ACTIONS WILL HAVE CONSEQUENCES



A woman was sitting on a plain wooden chair in the middle of the desert. Her gaze was fixed on the very dry sand, watching intently for any sign of life, scouring every inch to see if the little shoots had popped their heads above ground.

She knew that the sand contained seeds, because she had the vague memory of sewing them there herself. Now she was rather despondent because she could see no concrete result, although she KNEW in her subconscious that the seeds had potential, and that they must be developing a root system underground, beyond her present sight.

To counteract her despondency, she tore her eyes away from the desert and looked upwards to gain another perspective. There, in the very far distance, she saw a number of dark clouds on the horizon. This was a catalyst inside her, releasing joyous anticipation. She now knew beyond a shadow of doubt that rain was on its way, and that she would witness the growth of the seeds herself.

The shadow of doubt only returned when she again turned to prolonged and studied contemplation of the dry desert where there was nothing to be seen to the naked eye. The woman learned not to direct her gaze in that direction too long, but to look at the horizon at frequent intervals, and thus she was able to keep her mental balance and focus during that very long period of time during which the black clouds very slowly drifted towards her.

The arrival of flocks of birds on the parched soil, some white and some black, consolidated the woman’s memory that she had indeed sewn seeds there in the very distant past. The birds tried to find the seeds, and squabbled among themselves, but they did not find them because they were so deep below the surface.

The inevitable happened. The rain began to fall, and the seeds grew rapidly into seedlings. Soon they grew into plants and bushes laden with flowers and fruit, as they were programmed to do.

The chair the woman was sitting on started to sink into the rain-soaked ground, and thus she realised that it was time to move on. She carried the chair through the lush field she had created and entered another desert. Here, she dug deep holes and put a seed into each one. Then she sat down on her chair, and she wondered – in view of her last experience – what would happen this time.

After contemplation, she realised that this was not a question of “wait and see”, but the result of her own actions and expectations, and she was filled with the knowledge and joy of her own creativity. She realised that she did not need to stay on the chair and wait. She realised that the seeds would germinate by themselves WHEN THE TIME WAS RIPE AND WHEN THE CONDITIONS WERE PERFECT. Again, a flock of birds appeared. This time, all the birds were grey.

They no longer fought with each other, just as the girl’s gaze was no longer torn between watching the sand and scouring the horizon. And so she left and continued her journey, knowing that her energy was no longer needed in that particular area of desert.
